Debuting in the eighth season, Noah was a member of the famous Hunter clan, which became wealthy via the oil business through their company Hunter Oil & Chemical. He often withheld the details of his identity from new friends due to a degree of sensitivity regarding it. He was sometimes given the cold shoulder by his half brother Josh Hunter while growing up, who declared that he wasn't a real Hunter, because they had different mothers. This would leave the men with a caring but somewhat distant relationship throughout their adult lives.
Noah was normally shown to exhibit good will throughout the series. He assisted David Silver during a troubled time and encouraged an amnesia-stricken Kelly Taylor to work things out with her boyfriend Brandon—despite the fact that she was momentarily interested in Noah.
It was eventually revealed that Noah had been involved in a car accident that took the life of an ex-girlfriend named Beth in November of 1996. This initially caused him to reject the romantic affections of Valerie, as he was still in the process of healing. In time, however, the two began an ultimately unsuccessful relationship. Noah later began seeing Donna after she broke up with David. Though the two became serious about one another, they would also both become unfaithful at various points. During his first infidelity, Noah was intoxicated, while Valerie, the woman he'd cheated with, had unwittingly been drugged. After discovering that Josh had been the one to drug Valerie, Noah brought the truth forth.
After Noah and Donna broke up following the revelation that Noah was drunk on the night Beth died and that his family had paid to cover it up. Noah began living a wild lifestyle, eventually getting caught up in a group of narcotic traffickers led by Josie and Shane Oliver.
Noah was eventually kidnapped by Josie and Shane, who demanded a ransom for his return. However, he was rescued following efforts from Steve Sanders and, more directly, Dylan McKay, which resulted in the three sharing a moment of camaraderie afterwards.
After a tumultuous relationship with his father, Daniel Hunter, Noah entered his father's office one night to find that he had committed suicide.
Noah concluded the series on good terms with both Donna and David, happily attending their wedding along with the rest of his friends and his new love, Ellen.
