Skylar Ali is a survivor in Dead Rising 2. He was caught up in the zombie outbreak in Fortune City. He reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role, though he does not help fight back when the Safe House is breached in Case 7-4: Breach.
In the Introduction, Skylar was seen trying to flee with his girlfriend outside the Fortune City Arena, but she was grabbed by a zombie and killed. He was terrified and ran for his life, later bumping into Chuck and Katey on the way to the Fortune City Emergency Shelter. He was later seen lamenting over not being able to rescue his girlfriend, having made it into the shelter along with several other survivors before the doors were sealed. Ray Sullivan cleared him and he headed inside the bunker where he rests in one of the rooms.
Case 6-4: Breach
In The Facts as the rescue team sent by Channel 6 Action News came in to save the survivors, Skylar was seen getting into a helicopter with Tamara Stein. Before he escaped, Chuck asked him if he has seen Stacey or Katey.
Skylar is one of the crazed survivors Frank can fight in Sandbox Mode. He will spawn in front of the escalators leading to Shoal Nightclub with a tiki torch. Once defeated he drops his weapon and $10,000.
