Name Relationship Description

Rhys Bejain
Old Friend
Once a member of the Bajoran Resistance, then a Starfleet officer, and then back to resistance work again -- this time through the Maquis -- it was Bejain who recruited Walter to the cause.
Erin Reynolds (Skarbek).png
Erin Reynolds
Close Friend
Walter has known Erin almost as long as he's been a member of the Maquis, the botanist present in the DMZ when the treaties began to break down and fighting began. They've been friends for years, she was his best man at his wedding, and the pair have had each other's backs through thick and thin. Their relationship stumbled when he organised the kidnapping of her sister, Quinn, who was a serving intelligence officer in Starfleet. They have since patched things up, somewhat helped by the fact he was able to help in convincing Quinn to join the Maquis, but it has left her with little tolerance for any attempt of his to keep secrets.

Jocelyn Marshall
Trusted Second
The happy-go-lucky human is someone that Walter has come to rely on; capable, sensible and sharing a similar set of morals and ethics to him, helping him keep the more roguish members of the crew in line. He appreciates her humour and insight, even if he doesn't admit it, as well as the fact she can pretty much match him drink for drink when its time to crack out the liquor.

Valesha Sienelis
Mercenary Friend
No one knows in what circumstances Walter and Valesha met, and neither has felt inclined to share the story. Whatever happened between them, it was enough for the him to trust her and bring her into the resistance cell, and there she's remained ever since. Known for firing off sarcastic remarks at one another as though they're exchanging mortar fire across trenches, they nonetheless appear to know how far is too far, and don't cross that line. She is one of the few crew who receive rare invitations to share a drink, when the mood takes him.

Quinn Reynolds
Who The Hell Knows
Walter cannot decide if he trusts the former Starfleet officer or not, wavering on whether her conversion to the cause is genuine or a deep cover for an intelligence operation. She's yet to betray his trust (that he knows of), annoyingly finds her easier to confide in than the rest of the crew (even Erin), and can't quite figure out how she managed to crawl under his skin so quickly.
