Travis was among the soldiers of Alpha-Omega, working under Colonel McCullough during the Human-Ape War. Travis was assigned to an ambush at an ape fort in the Muir Woods, with guidance from McCullough's various "donkeys", including Red. When the apes, led by Caesar counter-attacked the Alpha-Omega assault by firing arrows at the soldiers, Travis was among the four human survivors who avoided being hit.
Travis, Red, Preacher, Lang and one other human survivor were brought to Caesar, where Travis told Caesar to just kill them. When Caesar replied that he didn't start this war and only fought to protect the apes, Travis asked about Red, claiming they had ten more like him back at their base. After Caesar was done talking he had Travis and the soldiers sent back to their base of operations on horseback at the Border.
Travis was present during Alpha-Omega's fight with the Northern Army. He was either killed by the gas tank explosion or one of the survivors buried underneath the snow from the avalanche.
- Initially credited as "Captured Soldier" in the movie, his name was officially revealed as "Travis" in the War for the Planet of the Apes - Official Movie Novelization.
