Courtney Wagner is the alternate counterpart of the original Courtney Wagner. She was created when the original Max Caulfield traveled back in time to 2008 and prevented the death of William Price, which resulted in a divergence from the original timeline.  Courtney is still a member of the Vortex Club, but is not a close friend of Maxine Caulfield despite circumstance of the original Timeline that never came to pass.
Like several other members of the Vortex Club, Courtney's life presumably little changed from that of the original Courtney Wagner. However, unlike her original counterpart, Courtney appeared to hold no general affection for Maxine Caulfield, a photographer and friend of Victoria Chase and Nathan Prescott. While most of the core members agreed to the idea of allowing Maxine to join their group, Courtney argued against it, presumably on the basis that she didn’t like Maxine.
Events of Life Is Strange
After Max prevents Chloe Price's father, William, from dying in a car accident, she alters the timeline of her present. While Max is regaining her composure in Maxine Caulfield's body, Courtney speaks with the other members of the club. She mentions that her friends in Los Angeles told her that Oregon was supposed to be "wet and cold everyday" and goes on to compare people living in Oregon to those who live in California.
When Victoria and Taylor Christensen take notice of Max's odd behavior, Courtney disdainfully remarks that they shouldn't have let Maxine join the Vortex Club. Taylor makes a point of mentioning Courtney never wanted anyone in the club, but Courtney dismisses her remark.
- ↑ Courtney's off-screen discussion of her friends in Los Angeles suggest that she originally lived there and is not a born resident of Arcadia Bay.
