Terry is one of Brian’s friends from school. Terry is not described in detail, but he is present in Brian’s memory of discovering his mother’s affair (“The Secret”), and Brian thinks of him several times while lost in the wilderness. At one point, remembering playing make-believe with Terry inspires Brian to build his shelter, and Terry also appears in the dream that encourages Brian to attempt making fire.
