How old is Newt when he dies?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

Newt is 16 years old when he dies. He was a character in the Maze Runner series, written by James Dashner. Throughout the series, Newt played a significant role as one of the Gladers, a group of boys trapped in a mysterious maze. He was known for his leadership skills and was often referred to as “The Glue” due to his ability to unite and hold the group together.

As the second-in-command, Newt was responsible for maintaining order and ensuring the well-being of the Gladers. He was highly respected by his fellow Gladers and played a crucial role in their survival. Despite the harsh conditions and constant danger they faced, Newt remained strong and resilient, serving as a source of inspiration and guidance for the others.

However, as the series progressed, Newt began to experience the effects of a deadly virus known as the Flare. The Flare was a global pandemic that caused individuals to lose their sanity and ultimately led to their death. Unfortunately, Newt was infected with the Flare, and his condition deteriorated over time.

Despite his best efforts to fight the virus, Newt’s mental and physical health continued to decline. He became increasingly unstable and eventually reached a point where he posed a danger to himself and the others. In a heart-wrenching moment, Newt asked his friend, Thomas, to end his suffering.

Thomas reluctantly granted Newt’s final wish and ended his life, sparing him from further pain and allowing him to find some peace. Newt’s death deeply impacted the other characters and left a lasting impact on the readers of the series.

Newt was 16 years old when he died. His death was a tragic but necessary sacrifice for the greater good. His character and leadership will always be remembered by the Gladers and the readers of the Maze Runner series.
