Wyatt attends Anchor Beach Community Charter School. He is known as an outsider that doesn't really fit in with the rest of the world. He first met Callie in English class and, later, became a love interest. Wyatt feels connected to Callie probably because they have similar past situations. He becomes her on-again, off-again boyfriend for a majority of the series. Their friendship seems to end when Callie discovers that he slept with Mariana.
Wyatt has dirty-blond shoulder length hair that is naturally wavy. He has dark blue eyes and a very toned but muscular body. His sense of style is very hobo chic. He puts on a very fierce and repellant exterior that drives people the other way when they pass him. Just based on his appearance, he seems very closed off to the rest of the world and keeps to himself.
Wyatt and Callie meet when they both have issues with being inspired to write about a time they have felt guilt and shame, which is homework. When both finally write about something, they tear the paper apart together and throw it into the garbage.
He approaches Callie while she eats her lunch, and engages her in a conversation, trying to get to know her. When Wyatt is questioned about what he wants, he responds that he wants "What all guys want... a stimulating conversation. And sex." This results in Callie laughing, and he compliments her on her smile. He then asks her if she'd like to hang out with a couple of friends, but she tells him she has a thing to go to. And he tells her that if her thing becomes boring then to go find him. Later Callie meets Wyatt at the bonfire.
Callie invites Wyatt over to attend a Foster-family barbeque, where Brandon acts hostile and refuses to befriend him; Wyatt stays afterward to help clean up the mess and dishes, getting him on Lena's and Stef's good side.
After Wyatt leaves, Callie is told by Brandon that Wyatt is trouble and that Talya once dated him, but he dumped her the morning after sex. When confronted about this at school by Callie, he tells her that Talya was becoming controlling and obsessive, which he did not like; he also said that he didn't break up with her the morning after, but a couple of weeks following the sex. He then tells Callie that she will have to make it up to him somehow for not trusting him, so she agrees to go out on another date.
They stop at a beach house, which Wyatt says his parents own but never use. Together they sit on the porch and wait for the meteor shower to occur, but it is blocked by clouds; to pass time, Wyatt and Callie begin to talk and then kiss but are interrupted when a light flickers inside. When Callie states that he had said that his parents are nearly never there, Wyatt pulls her by the wrist and tells her that it really isn't his property at all.They both hide behind a dumpster, where Callie angrily says that she is still on probation and could get sent back to juvie. He tries to lighten the mood by joking around on how funny the situation would be the next day, but she doesn't laugh. Callie is then forced to call Brandon to pick the both of them up due to the fact that Wyatt's car is blocked by the police.
At school the next day, Wyatt is seen asking Callie if she wanted an apology from him. When she refuses, he apologizes sincerely anyway, saying that he has done many stupid things, but never has regretted any, except for what he did the night before. They then kiss and hold hands, implying that Callie has forgiven him.

Wyatt sighs and asks Callie to tell her about Liam. Callie gives him a very vague explanation. Wyatt scoffs and sarcastically tells her that wasn't much of an explanation. Callie says "I thought that's what you liked about me. That I was mysterious and a bit screwed up." Wyatt replies with, "you might be a bit too screwed up, even for me."
