Walker Evan Chester is the only surviving parent of Caprice Louisa Chester aka "Reecy" was an only child and pretty much grew up her dad's sidekick. She was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, and was an only child to her gay dads, Walker and Zac. Reecy's biological mother, Laurie, was a friend of Walker's and just a simple surrogate. She lived on the opposite side of the country, and owned a little boutique of vintage clothing in San Francisco where she and Walker grew up. Walker and Zac met in San Francisco when Zac went there to get his gay on loud and proud after high school. They fell in love quickly and Walker moved back to New York with Zac, though it was not long after Reecy was born that Zac was diagnosed with testicular cancer and died of complications with an infection during his chemotherapy. It left Walker alone with Reecy, and although Reecy's surrogate mom did step up and offer to take her if he didn't think he could cope, Walker wanted to raise his daughter just like he and Zac had planned to raise her together.

It wasn't easy and times were tough. Walker never went to college when he was younger, but he was a hard worker. He was a bartender with a small but busy local bar which he eventually got a loan to buy when the owner wanted to retire to nurse his sick mother with dementia. The bar life wasn't what he would have chosen his daughter to be raised in, but with his parents retired and now miles away in sunny Miami, he had to do the best with what he had. Reecy was, without a shadow of a doubt, a tom boy. She liked all this messy, dirty and rough. She only ever really had friends who were boys, and would rough and tumble with the best of them. Their house was always overrun with boys dressed like cops, robbers, Ninja Turtles, Transformers, cowboys... you name it. Reecy was a boisterous kid, loud and always on the go. She had a load of friends, was involved in as many sports as she wanted, but as a stark contrast, also had an amazing singing talent.

Walker didn't know where that came from, but he wanted to nurture it, and did. She was in singing lessons from a young age and took music right through school. He bought her first guitar for her at four and she played ever since. Father and daughter we incredibly close, really only having each other for family nearby. Walker worked hard and built the bar up to a cushy little local waterhole and Reecy went through school happily enough, excelling most in sports and music. It was when Reecy grew up a little and was happily settled in school that Walker took the long leap of faith and decided to go to Med School to become a doctor, though kept ownership of the bar as a nest egg. Reecy's ambition was always to become a mechanic, though, and it wasn't something Walker really tried to sway her from but did tell her to leave her options open. She dated on and off, but always held boys up against how great a guy her dad was and tired of them easily. She had standards and wouldn't let them slip for any random dick. She lost her virginity to her best friend, Winston Slater, who she called Winnie, a sweet bi kid who wanted to be a writer. They had been friends right through their childhood and still best friends to this day, and Walker is very close to Winston's parents.

Walker has now well and truly finished Med School and is now a partner with Karla Jameson at a general medical practice in White Plains. Although Walker often see patients in the hospital, he prefers general practice because nursing his partner through cancer and subsequently losing him to it left him feeling like hospital work might be too high-paced for him as a later qualifying doctor. Walker has never had another relationship since losing Zac, and his love never died with him. He has been pretty convinced that he had his chance and can't imagine anyone taking Zac's place. He is happy and content with his life, adoring every minute of his daughter's success and being incredibly proud of the fact she just scored the lead role of Velma Kelly in Chicago on Broadway. There hasn't been a single minute since Reecy's birth that he hasn't loved being a father, and he feels that is 100% fulfilling for him.
