A survivor in Rick's hometown, Morgan lost his wife while they and their son were passing through the town. They found Rick after he woke up, and explained to him what was going on. Rick gave him a radio so they could keep in contact. [[spoiler: He returns in Season 3, having gone mad with grief after losing his son to the Walkers.]]
----
* AdaptationalBadass: The comic book version of Morgan was much less capable of kicking ass, [[spoiler:having never fortified the town or built booby-traps, and could barely get a headshot on a walker.]]
* TheAtoner: For not being able shoot [[spoiler:his un-dead wife]] before she bites [[spoiler:their son]], he puts himself in a self-imposed penance to clear the town of walkers out of the area.]]
* CastingGag[=/=]ShoutOut: To ''Series/{{Jericho}}''. The scene in which Morgan appears to shoot his wife is shot from the same angle, and is almost identical, to a scene in which Robert Hawkins is defending the titular town.
* CrazyPrepared: By season three, his new base has been laced with booby traps for Walkers and even outlined with escape routes using drawn arrows on the ground for every possible scenario. Also his firearms and ammunition stock...
* CrazySurvivalist: By season three he's become hardened to the realities of the zombie apocalypse.
* DeathSeeker: Shows signs of this after the loss of his wife, which might likely have prompted [[IdiotBall his actions]] at the end of the pilot. [[spoiler: He later begs Rick to shoot him because [[ICannotSelfTerminate he couldn't bring himself to commit suicide]].]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:His son Duane]] being turned by his Walker-turned wife, which he was previously unable to bring himself to kill.
* FakeAmerican: Lennie James is English.
* FallenHero: In season three. [[spoiler:Duane's death]] turned Morgan completely insane, booby trapping an entire town, and robbing and threatening travelers.
* {{Foil}}[=/=]ShadowArchetype: Just like [[spoiler:Shane became a sort of EvilCounterpart to Rick]], so has Morgan become an extreme, darker reflection of what Rick could become, and it seems Rick himself has realized this. [[spoiler:Rick's attempts to bring Morgan back with him to the prison sound like Rick attempting to give advice to himself.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: An interesting case, considering he was just a father trying to look out for his son. [[spoiler:When his son died after being attacked by Morgan's Walker wife, the one he failed to stop, Morgan's outlook just changed.]] Collecting enough guns to start a war, he then manages to turn King County into one big old deathtrap for Walkers and for anyone else that came through town.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: In "Clear", he talks about this trope[[spoiler:, in particular how he's become as uncaring as the walkers]].
* GrammarNazi: Very understated version: Despite the end of the world, he feels it is important for his son to use proper grammar.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: After Rick leaves him and Duane. [[spoiler:But when he returns in Season 3, Morgan has ''changed''.]]
* IdiotBall: Firing his sniper rifle at zombies [[spoiler: to attract a horde around his house (which his son is in!) so he can shoot his zombified wife. He doesn't even manage to do that.]] [[spoiler: That said, some [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation interpret]] his actions as [[BolivianArmyEnding intentional]]. He later admits that he lacked the strength to do it, which came back to haunt him when she followed them on a supply hunt and bit their son]].
* KillTheOnesYouLove: Forced by circumstances to kill [[spoiler:his wife and son]].
* MadnessMantra: The word [[spoiler:"Clear"]], from the episode of the same name, is written all over his house.
* MrExposition: He explains to Rick about the Walkers, and also tells him about the evacuation zone in Atlanta.
* MyGreatestFailure: He was basically broken by his losses since he was introduced, [[spoiler:the loss of his wife and son.]]
%% * PapaWolf
* PutOnABus: At the end of the pilot episode. TheBusCameBack in season 3, however.
* RoomFullOfCrazy: [[spoiler:His hideout]] in season three is covered in graffiti to this effect. They seem to tell him of past events, [[spoiler:such as the death of Duane and others,]] as well as reminders of his plans, tactics and booby traps.
* SanitySlippage: After [[spoiler:Duane is killed by his zombie wife]] and he has to put them both down. Insane writing on the walls included!
* SurvivalistStash: According to AMC, Morgan gathered 59 guns, 5 bows and 48 grenades. [[spoiler:Rick manages to rearm the prison and leave plenty for Morgan.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Gives one to Rick for not [[spoiler:keeping up with his radio messages.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: And ''how''! The character only has two episodes thus far, [[spoiler:but his second appearance is one of the most memorable and important episodes]].

* ShovelStrike: In the first episode, he uses this on Rick.
* TagAlongKid: Duane didn't do much, considering he was still just a kid. He mostly just followed his father and Rick around, but at least got trained by Rick. He also seemed the most scared of the Walkers, though mostly of his Walker mother. [[spoiler:Which causes the death of him in-between seasons.]]

->'''Portrayed by''': Adam Minarovich

Ed is the abusive husband of Carol and the father of Sophia. He died during the walker attack on the camp outside of Atlanta.
----
* AdaptationalVillainy: While it was stated in the comics that the ZombieApocalypse strained his relationship with his wife and daughter, they were still able to [[SparedByTheAdaptation remember him]] fondly and sympathetically. That can't be the case here.
* AssholeVictim: Nobody gave a crap that walkers ate him, including his family.

* DeathByPragmatism: A rare example of the pragmatic qualities being revealed after death, when he is shown hoarding military rations during the early stages of the ZombieApocalypse and refuses to socialize with other people.
* DomesticAbuser: Ed hits his wife Carol in the third episode. Comments between the characters indicate that he has a history of doing this. That and [[MoralEventHorizon "looking" at his daughter]].

* EatenAlive: Gets eaten when walkers wander into the camp and several enter his tent.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Being a {{Jerkass}} DomesticAbuser and a PervertDad, it's not hard to see why the Atlanta group never liked him and didn't care that he died.

* KarmicDeath: Ed gets eaten by a Walker just one episode after he slaps his wife. Notably, he gets killed because he's alone in his tent - he refuses to eat with the others since Shane beat him for hitting his wife, and his wife and daughter don't want to spend time around him.

* LastNameBasis: His wife and kids get first names, but his is never revealed.

* PermaStubble: bordering on BadassBeard
* PutOnABus: He and his family leave the group to look for relatives in Birmingham, Alabama.

!!Jim
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jim_8471.jpg]]

* ApocalypticLog: Dr. Jenner's recordings of everything he has done by way of research and study, while locked up in the CDC facility.

* MeaningfulName: Edwin Jenner was named after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Jenner Edward Jenner]], the "father of immunology".
* MercyKill: Does this for his wife after he finished studying her. It is also what he "offers" to the rest of the survivors by locking them in the CDC as it prepares to explode.
* NotSoStoic: It's obvious despite his deadpan demeanor that Patient TS-19 was someone important to him when he can describe how long from death to reanimation down to the second... and he only loses it in private with her photo and when the survivors realize he intends to lock them in for the end of the countdown.
* SanitySlippage: Due to his wife getting infected and being forced to put her down, the rest of the staff abandoning the CDC, and his discovery that everyone is infected and will become a walker even if they die without getting bitten.

----
* AlmightyJanitor: He was the literal head custodian of the nursing home.
* CanonForeigner: Never appeared in the comics.
* GangBangers: Subverted: he and his crew were faking it to appear tough.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: And likely a pretty interesting story at that, considering the fact that Atlanta is almost completely overrun, and his group of survivors is among the largest organized force encountered prior to Woodbury.
* JerkassFacade: He doesn't want to hurt anybody, but he is cautious with everyone who comes by due to previous encounters with looters and other violent survivors. He and his group use the facade to try to scare off other survivors so they can continue protecting the elderly.
* TheLeader: Of the nursing home survivors.
* OneShotCharacter: Only appears in "Vatos".
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Deleted material from the second season premiere shows the nursing home overrun and everyone dead, but this was cut when the premiere was heavily changed following Frank Darabont being fired. As such, the question as to what happened to Guillermo and his people is [[AbortedArc unlikely to ever be answered]]

Felipe is a social worker at the nursing home who joined Guillermo in defending its residents.
----
* AmusingInjuries: His getting shot in the butt by Daryl with an arrow.

* BitCharacter: No pun intended.
* DeathByAdaptation: In the comics, she died when the Governor attacked the prison.
* DemotedToExtra: None of the characterization given to her in the comics made it into the show.
* EatenAlive: In the second season finale as the group flees the farm, a walker comes out of nowhere to grab her and proceeds to munch down as a few other walkers join him.
* MauveShirt: Gets very little screen time or characterization before dying.
* WidowWoman: After Otis died.

!!Jimmy
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jimmy_3057.jpg]]

->'''Portrayed by''': James Allen [=McCune=]

A young farmhand on Hershel's farm, and the boyfriend of Beth. He was eaten by walkers when Hershel's farm was attacked.
----
* BitCharacter: He's such a minor character that most reviewers didn't even bother to learn his name.
* CanonForeigner: Never appeared in the comics.
* EatenAlive: While driving the RV, walkers manage to burst in while it's parked during his rescue of Rick and Carl and eat Jimmy before he can escape.
* ForgottenFallenFriend: To Beth, though this might be partially excusable due to the following episode taking place months later.
* HeroicFireRescue: During the second season finale, Jimmy takes the RV and rescues Rick and Carl from the burning barn as the walkers attack. Unfortunately, he gets eaten when walkers break into the RV.
* GangstaStyle: He holds his gun like this during training. After T-Dog tells him not to, he is much more accurate.
* TheGenericGuy: He has pretty much zero discernible character traits.
* RedShirt: So much so that the cow Dale finds mutilated in the field was originally meant to be Jimmy's body. Jimmy is such a bit part that his death was replaced with a cow and it made very little difference.

!!Otis
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Otis_5481.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:''"I'm responsible. I ain't gonna sit here while this fella takes this on alone."'']]

[[caption-width-right:350:''"...ain't nobody's hands clean in what's left of this world."'']]
->'''Portrayed by''': Michael Raymond-James

A survivor from Philadelphia, who traveled south with his friend Tony, and is a seemingly polite guy. Dave met Rick, Glenn, and Hershel in a bar near the farm, and after they refused to allow him and Tony to join them, he went for his gun to shoot them. Rick responded by putting a bullet through his head and killing Tony as well.
----
* [[AffablyEvil Affably]] AmbiguouslyEvil: He was extremely polite in his conversation with Rick, Glenn, and Hershel, but the entire time something seems off about him; he just keeps pushing at Rick's stonewall responses. After Rick refuses one too many times to take Dave and Tony to their camp, he goes for his gun.
* BoomHeadshot: He was slower at the quick draw than Rick.
* CanonForeigner: Never appeared in the comics.
* DeadpanSnarker: Most of his lines are snarkry attempts to get Rick and the others to open up.
* GoodCopBadCop: He's the Good Cop to Tony's Bad Cop. He's polite and talkative, putting Rick, Hershel, and Glenn at their ease. Glenn buys it. Rick and Hershel don't.
* KnightOfCerebus: The series is already really dark, but Dave's arrival makes it clear that walkers are not the only thing the survivors have to worry about.
* NotUsingTheZWord: He refers to them as "Lamebrains", although he admits that "walkers" is a better name after being told that's the name for them that Rick's group uses.
%% * PermaStubble

!!Tony
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tonyWD_7586.png]]
->'''Portrayed by''': Aaron Munoz

Dave's fatter friend who traveled with him from Philadelphia, Tony is a lot ruder than Dave. He was killed alongside Dave by Rick when they attempted to force him to reveal where his camp was.
----
* CanonForeigner: Never appeared in the comics.
* CoupDeGrace: Rick shoots him once each in the shoulder and gut, then finishes him off with a bullet to the head.
* FatSlob: Aside from his unkempt look, he pees on the floor in front of everyone!
* GoodCopBadCop: While Dave puts the good guys at their ease, Tony has more of a temper. He's also casually misogynistic and pisses on the floor.
* {{Jerkass}}: Unlike Dave, he makes no effort at trying to be friendly.
%% * PermaStubble
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: His concern for "cooz" is disturbingly out of place.
* SuddenlyShouting: When he explodes that he'd be willing to kill the trio, Dave steps in to calm the situation, but even Glenn realizes this isn't as casual and friendly as Dave would like it to seem.
* UrineTrouble: It's his inappropriate choice of places to tinkle which drives the point home that he and Dave are probably not good news.

!!Randall
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/randallWD_1957.png]]
[[caption-width-right:350:''"I'm just some guy."'']]
->'''Portrayed by''': Michael Zegen

Another member of Dave's group, Randall is a local who went to school with Maggie, and claims he only joined up with Dave and his people because he had no other choice. He is captured by Rick's group, forcing them to try and figure out what to do with him. Shane lets him loose and breaks his neck as part of his plan to kill Rick, but Randall returns as a walker and is put down by Glenn.
----
* AmbiguouslyEvil: We never quite find out whether he's truly dangerous or not before he's murdered by Shane.
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: Turns into a walker after Shane snaps his neck, and is put down by Glenn.
* AssholeVictim: Possibly. Depends on [[AmbiguouslyEvil if you believe he really was innocent]] the whole time.
* {{Badass}}: He manages to take a Walker down despite having his hands tied.
* BoundAndGagged: How Rick and Shane keep him for most of "18 Miles Out".
* ButtMonkey: He gets impaled through the leg when he fails jumping off a roof, gets trussed up in a car, left for dead accidentally by Rick and Shane and told repeatedly to shut up by them. Then he gets tortured by Daryl and nearly executed. And then he gets his neck snapped and becomes a walker.
* CanonForeigner: Never appeared in the comics.
* CarFu: He crushes a walkers head in while driving in "18 Miles Out".
* MotorMouth: Notes this himself, telling Shane he talks a lot when nervous.
* NeckSnap: How Shane kills him after leading him into the woods.
* RoofHopping: He tries this, and fails spectacularly.
* SayingTooMuch: When Daryl is interrogating him, he mentions that his group raped two teenage girls in front of their father, but insists he did not participate. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown Daryl doesn't believe him]].
* WrongGenreSavvy: He thinks that telling Rick and Shane that he knows Maggie means that they'll spare him due to the connection and a sense of empathy. Actually it makes the argument that they should kill him even more convincing, as that means he knows where the farm is.

!!Nate
->'''Portrayed by''': Phillip [=DeVona=]

Another member of Dave's group.
----
* BitPartBadGuy: He is a very minor character that gets into a shootout with Rick, Glenn, and Hershell before fleeing.
* CanonForeigner: He never appeared in the comics.
* DeadpanSnarker
-->'''Nate:''' ''We're looking for Dave and Tony and nobody checks the damn bar?''
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After Sean gets shot he decides to abandon him and drive away and calls on Randall. When Randall falls on the gate and his leg gets impaled on a gate, Nate abandons him as well.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Unlike Randall and Sean, he wasn't willing to go back to the rest of his group without killing Rick, Glenn, and Hershel for killing Dave and Tony even after Rick explains to him what happened.

He joins the group after Oscar kills [[spoiler:Andrew]] and saves Rick.
----
* AdaptationalHeroism: Lacked his comic counterpart's perverted tendencies.
* AintTooProudToBeg: After [[spoiler: Rick kills Tomas and ([[NotQuiteDead supposedly]]) Andrew for attempting to murder him]], Axel begs Rick to spare his life, claiming that he isn't dangerous and was only imprisoned due to his prescription drug addiction. The last part was a lie, since he had been arrested for armed robbery (albeit with a water pistol) and he was trying to seem non-threatening.
* CasanovaWannabe: Begins to flirt with Beth because he believes she's the only single straight woman of the group. After Carol tells him to back off and that she's not a lesbian - Axel thought she was one [[AssociationFallacy because of the short hair]] - he instantly begins to hit on her. She casually rejects him.
* TheChewToy: Was mercilessly bullied by Tomas and Andrew before Rick's group showed up, although Oscar stood up for him before that.

* PluckyComicRelief: Most of his scenes tend to involve him being put down or having awkward conversations with other survivors.
* ShipTease: with Carol. Emphasis on 'tease'.
* SurprisinglySuddenDeath: Gets shot [[spoiler:in the head by the Governor]] out of nowhere.
* TokenWhite: To the prisoner survivors.
* VerbalTic: "You follow me?"

* AnAxeToGrind: While clearing the prison, he used an axe as his main weapon.
* {{Badass}}: He shows his badass credentials (which include a [[BadassBeard Badass Goatee]]) right away by proving to be the most competent of the prison survivors at killing walkers and his calm reaction to Rick putting a gun to his head while trying to figure out if he could be trusted.

----
* AdaptationalBadass: He may be a scumbag, but give the man credit: he survived being locked in close quarters with a bunch of walkers and caused utter chaos for the survivors [[spoiler: before going mano-a-mano with Rick]]. It's more than his comic counterpart ever came close to achieving.
* AdaptationalVillainy: He's ''far more'' dangerous in this incarnation making his comic counterpart pale in comparison.
* AnAxeToGrind: When he attacks [[spoiler:Rick and Oscar in the generator room]] he has a big axe as his weapon.
* BatterUp: He uses a bat as his main weapon when fighting walkers.

* DiscOneFinalBoss: For the first half of Season 3.
* TheDragon: To Tomas, being the only prisoner to follow his orders without protest.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Trusts Oscar to be on his side and shoot Rick, [[spoiler:after Oscar had just thrown a box at him]].

The next time he's seen is after surviving [[spoiler:getting locked in courtyard of Walkers]], and unleashes a horde of them on the Heroes, and holds his own in a one-on-one fight [[spoiler:against Rick]].
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Apparently dies for it, although he comes back two episodes later [[spoiler:and dies anyway]].
* SpannerInTheWorks: Ruins the safety of the prison, which was formerly almost entirely safe. [[spoiler:Setting off the alarms has lured even more walkers to the prison's surrounding area]].

* UndyingLoyalty: To Tomas. For some reason.

Tomas is the leader of the prisoners, having held a position of authority even before the ZombieApocalypse. He does not take kindly to Rick taking charge of the prison. [[spoiler: He is killed by Rick after attempting to kill him]].
----
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Thomas Richards is an unfit balding man in the comics. Here, he is given a fit and {{Badass}} appearance, similar to the Governor's comic counterpart.
* AdaptationalBadass: Thomas Richards is an ActionSurvivor at best, while Tomas can kick ass if he needs to be.
* AxCrazy: After [[spoiler: Big Tiny]] is infected, Tomas immediately takes his pickaxe and destroys his head, [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill hitting it over and over until there is nothing left.]] Everyone else is extremely freaked out by this.

* {{Badass}}: He gets the hang of killing walkers pretty quickly and nearly manages to get Rick killed. He is also sporting BadassLonghair and a BadassMustache.
* CompositeCharacter: WordOfGod says he is Thomas Richard's counterpart, but his role in the prison arc matches Dexter better. On the other hand, his appearance greatly resembles The Governor's comic incarnation.
* {{Expy}}: His appearance is similar to The Governor's comic book rendition, while his role as the most antagonistic prisoner (with an ally in Andrew) is similar to comic book's Dexter.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's antagonistic and rude to Rick's group from the moment he's introduced.
* IronicEcho: [[spoiler: "Shit happens."]] In record time, too.
* TheLeader: Of the prison survivors.

* TattooedCrook: Has numerous tattoos covering his body and is likely incarcerated for a violent crime, given how AxeCrazy he is.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: He thinks he can push Rick and his crew around, despite having seen the number of walkers they wasted taking the prison.

----
* AlliterativeName: His first and last name starts with an ''M''.
* AmbiguousDisorder: His aversion to human interaction, lack of social skills, and focus on his work suggests he has some kind of disorder, which was [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/03/29/dallas-roberts-milton-marnet-on-the-walking-deads-awesome-season-finale?abthid=5156086672815dea02000019 confirmed by Dallas Roberts in an interview]].
* ApocalypticLog: He is recording as many events as possible that occurred in the ZombieApocalypse to make sure that there is a history of at least some of the things that happened. When he meets Hershel, he asks questions about the different events that have happened to his group and how they dealt with them to add to his history.
* BadLiar: Whenever Milton is required to lie, he tends to break out into a pretty strong stutter, complete with a lot of "Uh's."

* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: He's the scientific advisor to the Governor, and is one of the only people in the entire show with glasses.
* SpotOfTea: He makes a very good cup of tea that the Governor enjoys. [[WordOfGod According to an executive producer]], it's an in-joke about a writer who loves drinking tea.
* TokenGoodTeammate: When the Governor starts to go off the deep end, he graduates to this from PunchClockVillain. He argues against the decision to kill Rick's group, [[spoiler: allows Andrea to escape to warn them, and burned the captured walkers so they can't be used against the prison]].
* ZombieAdvocate: His main project seems to be finding out whether or not the walkers have any semblance of humanity left. Possibly because he has relatively little experience dealing with them. It's implied the main reason he's trying to find out is because the Governor hopes that [[spoiler:his undead daughter still has humanity]].

* AmbiguouslyBrown[=/=]RaceLift: While Donna was white in the comics, this Donna appears to be Hispanic or of MixedAncestry.
* DeathByAdaptation: An odd version. She's around much shorter than her comic incarnation, but dies much later in the timeline.
* DemotedToExtra: In the comics, Donna was around for the first arc and a half before being killed.
* HotMom: Portrayed by Cherie Dvorak
* PinkMeansFeminine: Her clothes are pink.
* RedShirt: Given none of the characterization her comic book counterpart recieved.
* ZombieInfectee: Gits bitten in the woods outside of the prison and dies of the bite shortly after Carl finds the group.

!!Ben
->'''Portrayed by''': Tyler Chase

Ben is the son of Allen and Donna. He joins the Woodbury militia alongside his father. [[spoiler:He is shot and killed by Merle when the militia is ambushed by him]].
----
* AccidentalMurder: ZigZagged. [[spoiler:Merle was aiming for The Governor when Ben accidentally blocked the shot by Merle]], but the actual plan aside from killing [[spoiler:The Governor]] is to take out as many Woodbury militia as he can.
* AdaptationalHeroism: ''Very'' relatively, but compared to his comic counterpart, who [[spoiler:ended up being an EnfantTerrible who murders his own brother and doesn't realize it]], this version, who tries to avoid fights among people and just works to help fight off the Walkers is at least comparatively better. Doesn't help him much, though, given his status as an UngratefulBastard.
* AgeLift: From around 6 or 7 years old in the comic to a teenager in the show.
* CoincidentalDodge: Inverted, he coincidentally wanders into [[spoiler:Merle's]] aim, taking a bullet [[spoiler:meant for the Governor]] completely by chance.
* DemotedToExtra: His comic counterpart is TheRival of sorts to Carl. [[spoiler:Here, he is a MauveShirt who is killed off before any CharacterDevelopment.]]
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Gets shot in the neck [[spoiler:by Merle during his ambush of the Governor's men.]]
* LikeFatherLikeSon: He is actually nodding in approval for his father's {{Ungrateful Bastard}}ness.
* MacheteMayhem: Uses a machete to dispatch a walker in the scene he is introduced in, but loses it when the walker collapses and it gets stuck in the walkers head.
* MauveShirt: Killed off [[spoiler:by Merle]] in "This Sorrowful Life".
* UngratefulBastard: Like his dad, he wants to take over the prison before getting kicked out and joins the Woodbury army to fight the prison group, despite them having saved them previously.
* YesMan: To his father.
