Lester is a resident of Haven and a friend of Joseph Capelli. He first appears working on a generator and telling Capelli about Dale needing him at the shooting range; in which he also forewarned him about Dale's crankiness if Capelli were to be late. Lester later participated in the town's defense against a Chimeran Death Squad. After the first few firefights he is seen with Dixie, a radio operator trying to contact other villages in the area to warn them about the Terraformer. He then helped in evacuating the town and providing Capelli an Marksman. His fate after the town was evacuated and Capelli left with Malikov is unknown.
Lester has shotgun pellets on his belt but never uses them, or a shotgun.
