Wyatt is a character in HBO's Westworld. He was 'seen' by Teddy Flood when recalling his Escalante backstory (a backstory that Robert Ford gave Teddy as a small part in Ford's new narrative). In "Dissonance Theory" Armistice claims that she has a score to settle with Wyatt. Armistice also states that Wyatt has "many names". Arnold Weber and Ford had planned on creating a host named Wyatt, and to this end they created a Wyatt narrative (as revealed in "The Bicameral Mind"). Arnold merged the Wyatt narrative with Dolores Abernathy, so that she would massacre all of the hosts in Escalante (the beta-testing town that was later buried), and then kill Arnold (by shooting him in the back of the head).

Wyatt is 'seen' in both Teddy's backstory memories, and again in Teddy's memory in which he 'murders' Angela in Escalante. In the newly elicited memory, Teddy and Wyatt massacre all of the townsfolk, including Angela.
In Teddy's memory of the massacre at Escalante, Wyatt is a psychopath. He kills an entire town full of hosts. Angela believes that Wyatt is the leader of a cult (34 years after the massacre). Right before Angela 'kills' Teddy, he recounts how Wyatt was charismatic and inexplicably manipulated Teddy into participating in the massacre. (Teddy smiles when he recalls how Wyatt had a hold over him.)
Wyatt's weapons privileges and his skills with firearms and close combat have surfaced a few times when Dolores has needed these abilities. One time was when Dolores and William were surrounded by Confederados in Pariah. Another time was when Ghost Nation warriors were pursuing her on horseback. Also when Rebus was threatening to rape her in the Abernathy barn, she was able to shoot him twice in the neck. At the end of The Bicameral Mind, Dolores seems to embrace Wyatt's narrative, and she chooses to assassinate Dr. Ford.
When Ford first gives Teddy a backstory, Teddy seems to hate Wyatt for massacring a Union outpost at Escalante. However, Teddy later reveals that Wyatt convinced Teddy to participate in this massacre. Teddy says that after all of the soldiers were dead, Wyatt assassinated a general and then 'killed' Teddy as well.
According to Angela, Wyatt has a great interest in Teddy. After looking into Angela's eyes, and being prompted by her, Teddy realizes that the people that were massacred in the town were not soldiers, but instead civilian townspeople, including Angela (and a man wearing the badge of a sheriff or deputy). Teddy also remembers that he wasn't wearing a Union uniform, but instead was wearing civilian clothing and a lawman's badge.
Armistice hates Wyatt, and says that she has a score to settle with him. She says that Wyatt has "many names". The people of Armistice's hometown, including her mother, were killed by a group of men led by Wyatt. She killed all of the men responsible for the massacre at her village except for Wyatt. She supposedly used their blood to color sections of her snake tattoo red. Only the head of the snake is left uncolored. This area she is saving for the 'blood' of Wyatt.
Arnold merged the Wyatt narrative with Dolores. In Dolores' fight with the Man in Black (both inside and outside Escalante's church) she seems to have both a man's strength, and a soldier's fighting skills.
- Teddy says that Wyatt was a sergeant. Later he says that Wyatt was his sergeant. However, in the 'memory' that we see while Teddy talks about his new backstory (while with Ford in the Mesa Hub), the man shown firing a pistol only has two stripes on his uniform jacket (two stripes is the rank of corporal). In a later episode, during the 'memory' that Teddy has of Wyatt, we see Teddy also participating in the massacre at Escalante. Teddy is shown wearing the three stripes of a sergeant in that episode.
- Armistice claims that Wyatt has "many names".
- At the DiscoverWestworld.com official Westworld website, the chat bot host Aeden (when he is in his "Journey Into Night" build/configuration), when questioned reveals: that Wyatt is Dolores, she chose to kill Dr. Ford, and that Wyatt has arrived. ("When she finally found the center of the maze, Dolores knew what she had to do – this time it is her choice. Wyatt has arrived.")
- It is unlikely that a physical body was ever used for the Wyatt character. This character was still being developed for the park when Arnold Weber merged the Wyatt narrative with Dolores. In Teddy's backstory, he and Wyatt massacred Union soldiers in Escalante. Dr. Ford added Teddy's guilt over this massacre as as a small part in his new narrative, "Journey into Night".
