Step by Step
"It's a sin for him to keep living."
Susie to Brock.[src]

Susie Brown was a major supporting character in Step by Step. She was Summercreek High School's school nurse. She was a kind, caring woman with a sense of humor, who willingly stayed at the school to help those in need. As tensions rose inside the school, she fought with the soldiers with her group of radicals, notably Caroline. Later, she and her group would commit mass suicide whilst the school was being destroyed by a fire.


Susie Brown was raised in Indiana before moving to Indianapolis with her husband. Afterwards, her husband was inducted into the army and Susie stayed with their two children, a boy and a girl. The family was reunited a couple years later when the war ended, but soon Susie's husband left the family. She then raised her two children and worked as a doctor until she went to be the school nurse at Summercreek High School.

During this time, she tended to the injured and supervised the other nurses and doctors. After the military station was compromised, she advised most of the nurses and gave Carter Jameson a batch of antibiotics to help with his wrist wound. Later on she began to congregate with other refugees, according to Carter. In these meetings, Susie spoke about faith. Also, she pledged to the refugees that Judgement Day was upon them and they were "surrounded by death itself". In the midst of the destruction, she and her group fled to the main office with Joseph's rifle and committed a mass suicide before the crazies and/or the fire could reach and kill them, where she would later be found by Carter as he escaped.
