!The Greene Family

[[folder: In General]]

A family living in Georgia introduced in the second season. They own the Greene farm and welcome Rick's group onto the property, as their farmhand Otis accidentally shoots Carl. Hershel initially stresses that the group must leave the farm when Carl has fully recovered, but to his dismay finds that Rick begins to plead for the group to stay - and that Glenn and his daughter Maggie have fallen in love. The Greenes are revealed to have been keeping a dark secret for months - that they are keeping their undead friends and family in their barn, Hershel having convinced his family that they are sick people who can be cured. Livid, Shane forces the family to learn the horrible truth when he forces his group to massacre the walkers, breaking Hershel and Beth in particular.

However, Hershel is roused from his depression when Rick convinces him there is still hope, and comes to trust the group as his own extended family after realizing they are good, loyal people. Hershel agrees to allow the group to move onto the farm permanently as the winter approaches, but they are forced to flee when a herd of walkers overruns the property. The Greenes are forced to join the group on the road, proving to be vital assets and leaders in the battle-worn group.

While Hershel becomes TheMentor to Rick and a second-in-command, Maggie becomes one of the group's main fighters, and Beth becomes one of Judith's primary caregivers and secondary defenders. The family is able to pull through the Woodbury War unscathed - with Maggie marrying Glenn shortly before its' climax - and grow comfortable at the prison until The Governor returns with a vengeance. Hershel is captured and executed, to the horror of his daughters, who are separated when the prison finally falls. Maggie goes with Sasha and Bob to find Glenn, and eventually rejoin the main group.

Meanwhile, Beth is abducted by the cops of Grady Memorial Hospital, and gets herself killed after a hostage exchange. Tragically, Maggie is as of season five the last surviving member of the Greene family, who still hold sway in the group's hearts to this day long after their deaths.
* AdaptationalBadass: Their comic counterparts weren't presented as a BadassFamily. The trope also applies to them individually.
* AdaptedOut: Out of Hershel's ''seven'' children in the comics, only [[PosthumousCharacter Shawn, Arnold]] and Maggie showed up. Beth is a CanonForeigner.
* BadassFamily: Rick and co., along with the ZombieApocalypse, forced them to be.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Played with. Beth is obviously the blonde. Maggie's auburn hair is more evident in her first appearances (it was her actress' natural hair color), while Hershel's actor has brown hair in his youth.
* {{Breakout Character}}s: The Greenes are synonymous to the show in the same way the Grimses, Shane, Glenn, Daryl, Carol and Michonne are.
* CantRefuseTheCallAnymore: The destruction of Greene Farm leads them to accept the new state of the world and follow Rick's group to survive.
* DeathByAdaptation: Arnold Greene was killed in the comics' version of the barn massacre. Here, he's one of the walkers in the said barn.
* DecompositeCharacter: Hershel only had one dead wife in the comics.
* TheFamilyThatSlaysTogether: After they became a BadassFamily. Most notably in the Season 3 premiere, where they all worked together to clear the prison.
* FarmBoy: If owning a farm is not obvious enough.
* FarmersDaughter: Maggie and Beth, the former more so.
* GenderEqualEnsemble: They were first introduced with three males (Hershel, Jimmy and Otis) and three females (Maggie, Beth and Patricia).
* TheHeart: The Greenes are widely considered as ''the'' family of the show more than the Grimeses.
* HonoraryUncle: The Greenes eventually become more of a family to the Grimeses and to most of their eventual TrueCompanions. In fact, the Greenes may well be considered the second most prominent family next to the Grimeses.
* IconicSequelCharacter: Well, a whole family of them.The Green family is so prominent in the show that some people would think they've been around since the beginning. They didn't even actually show up until the second season.
* MissingMom: Maggie and Beth's respective mothers were dead before the series began.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Hershel's late wife in the comics is unnamed. The show's DecompositeCharacter are respectively named Josephine (1st) and Annette (2nd).
* TheOneGuy: Of the surviving members of the family, Hershel is the last remaining male.
* OnlyOneName: Otis, Patricia and Jimmy. In short, anyone who is not a Greene.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: ZigZagged. The family relationship in the comics got shuffled a bit. Hershel's late wife is split [[DecompositeCharacter into two characters]], Shawn was only Hershel's step-son, where he's his biological son in the comics. Likewise, Arnold, one his sons in the comics, became the nephew of his first wife instead.
* ReligiousBruiser: They're very religious, and by Season 3, they're a very BadassFamily.
* SecondEpisodeIntroduction: They, along with the surviving farm residents, were all introduced in "Bloodletting", the second episode of the second season.
* TokenReligiousTeammate: They're often seen praying together.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Unfortunately, the family starts dropping like flies.
* TookALevelInBadass: While Hershel may have always been a BadassGrandpa, his daughters eventually become combat proficient fighters by Season 3.
* TrueCompanions: With the other farm residents below. Eventually to the main group itself.
* ZombieAdvocate: They keep walkers in a barn until mid-Season 2, thinking they were sick people.

!!Hershel Greene
[[caption-width-right:300:''"You step outside, you risk your life. Take a drink of water, you risk your life. You don't have a choice. The only thing you can choose is what you're risking it for."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/ScottWilson

-->''"I can't profess to understand God's plan, but when Christ promised a resurrection of the dead, I just thought he had something a little different in mind."''

Hershel is the owner of a farm that was mostly spared by the zombie apocalypse. He allowed the survivors to stay on the farm during their search for Sophia, but secretly kept a barn full of walkers, including his wife and step-son, believing they were simply sick. After the group is forced to leave the farm, his medical knowledge is vital to their survival and makes him one of their main assets and leaders.

When the group occupies the prison, Hershel tries to keep Rick on a moral path during the conflict with Woodbury and encounters with other survivors. After the end of the battle against Woodbury and the growth of the group in the prison, Hershel begins growing crops in the prison yard to provide food for the group. He becomes the head of the council leading prison (and by extension the leader of the entire community), and finds himself forced to step up to the plate when most measures to contain the plague fail. He is killed by The Governor in the mid-season finale of the fourth season as part of a bid to take over the prison, but dies happy that Rick has embraced his last lessons - that you ''can'' come back from the things you do to survive.
* AbusiveParents: His father beat him badly, causing Hershel to leave the farm until he died. He himself averts this trope: he's a loving father and patriarch to his family.
* ActionDad: When he needs to be.
* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: Inverted. He didn't become as {{Wangst}}y as his comic counterpart. Having his children reduced to mainly two [[note]] Hershel has several children in the comics, all of whom sans Maggie were {{Mauve Shirt}}s. [[/note]] and him [[AdaptationalHeroism being much more likable]] might have helped. The only time he came close to this was when he fell OffTheWagon after the mid-Season 2 finale, which he also quickly recovered from.
* AdaptationalBadass: He's more combat proficient than his comic counterpart as evidenced in the Season 2 finale. Also, losing his leg doesn't stop him from [[HandicappedBadass kicking]] Walkers' ass. He even conceals a gun on his leg stump.
* AdaptationalHeroism: He is more doting and compassionate than his comic counterpart.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: He is more emotionally stable than his comic counterpart ever was.
* TheAlcoholic: Got sober the day Maggie was born. He briefly falls off the wagon when he is forced to face the reality that the walkers are dead.
* AnArmAndALeg: Due to getting his right leg bit while searching for Maggie and Glenn in the prison, Rick promptly makes a tourniquet then uses a hatchet to cut off part of the leg below the knee to stop the spread of the infection.
* AndStarring: An odd example. Back when Scott Wilson was still in the "also starring" list during Seasons 2 and 3, he plays this straight. But when he finally got PromotedToOpeningTitles in Season 4, he was mostly credited last but without the "And" citation. Yet when Creator/DavidMorrissey (The Governor) returns on-screen, he re-assumed having the last spot with the "And" billing from Season 3.
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: His decapitated head reanimates not long after his death, and Michonne tearfully puts it down.
* ArtificialLimbs: Has a peg-leg in Season 4.
* AsTheGoodBookSays: He quotes from Literature/TheBible in several episodes.
* BackForTheFinale: He appears in several flashback scenes in the Season 4 finale, eight episodes after his death.
* BadassBeard[=/=]BeardOfSorrow: He sports one beginning in Season 3.
* BadassBookworm: He is well-versed in Literature/TheBible, being a devoted Christian and all.
* BadassGrandpa: Older than Dale, and even more badass than him. Rick even brings him to the sit-down with The Governor that could potentially become a firefight, crutches and all.
* BigGood: During the first half of Season 4 when he is the head of the prison council.
* BreakoutCharacter: Originally Hershel was to be killed off before the end of the second season (and again in the third), but Scott Wilson's warmth in his performance convinced the show runners to keep him on. After taking his level in kindness, Hershel became one of the most beloved characters on the show and eventually became one of the show's major characters, to the point his death became the emotional climax of the climactic prison war and is now regarded as one of the most tragic and powerful moments of the entire series. Robert Kirkman even noted how hard it was to kill off Hershel, expressing sadness that Wilson wouldn't be on set the following year. Prior to the fourth mid-season finale, an entire video tribute was put together by the cast and crew, bidding farewell to Wilson and referring to him as a "legend". Two years after his character's death, Wilson was even the first induction into the ''Walking Dead'' Hall of Fame at the Season Six fan premiere event. It's very easy to say that of all the characters killed off in the show, Hershel is one of the few characters that ''everyone'' misses.
* CartwrightCurse: Both of his wives died.
* CharacterDevelopment: Goes from a slightly gruff, pushy old man to a loving, nurturing TeamDad with the wisdom to lead an entire community of survivors.
* ClosestThingWeGot: Despite being a veterinarian, Hershel mostly treats the various scrapes, bullet wounds, and arrow wounds that the survivors tend to accumulate. He's also the prison group's main doctor during the flu epidemic, as Dr. Caleb quickly succumbs.
* CombatMedic: He's the team's main medic for his entire tenure on the show, and also great in a fight.
* CompositeCharacter: His characterization for the prison arc (specifically the leg amputation and also becoming the TeamDad of the group) was fused with comic-Dale's, due to the latter's [[DeathByAdaptation early exit]] from the show. The circumstance before and after the bit are more similar to Allen, being bitten by a hidden walker while clearing out the prison and being bedridden for a time afterwards. He also takes Tyreese's death from the comics.
* CoolOldGuy: He's approaching seventy, but is an excellent shot and medic, dispenses good advice to the group, a little seen but witty sense of humor, and is extremely calm under pressure. [[BigBad The Governor]] even admits to admiring him for being a good man when he's captured him.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Similar to Tyreese's fate in the comics, Hershel's neck is slashed in a botched decapitation attempt, and then after he desperately crawls away a few feet, it's followed up by the Governor hacking brutally away at the neck to decapitate Hershel completely.
* CrusadingWidower: Twice.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Season 4's "Internment" mostly revolves around his attempts to manage the illness spreading through the prison while waiting for the other to return with medication.
* DeadStarWalking: Gets promoted to the main cast of season four, but only appears in six episodes and with one being in a flashback.
* ADeathInTheLimelight: Season 4 heavily emphasized his role as the group's TeamDad. His ADayInTheLimelight episode was also [[VillainEpisode the last episode centered around the group]] before the mid-season finale where he eventually met his end. Scott Wilson remarked that even he started getting vibes that this trope was in effect, noting his speech about risking your life and "Internment" focusing on him were clear signs that Hershel's time was running out.
* DespairEventHorizon: When he sees first hand his walker neighbor shot and then put down by Shane. Then Shane forces his own group to massacre the walkers in the barn, including Hershel's zombified family and neighbors. He manages to recover quickly.
* DoesntLikeGuns: But he sure knows how to use them.
* DrowningMySorrows: After the walker barn massacre and realizing that the walkers can't be helped.
* EasilyForgiven: He has an astounding amount of forgiveness in his old body, to the point of calmly advocating a peaceful merge with The Governor's militia.
* FarmBoy: He grew up on his farm and inherited it after his parents died.
* ForgottenFallenFriend: Very much Averted. His absence is still very much felt long after his death, both in-universe and amongst the fandom.
* GoOutWithASmile: Because of Rick realizing that you can come back from the things you do to survive, he smiles knowing that he and his family at the prison will be alright when he's gone.
* GoodParents: He cares deeply for his children, and everything he does has their best interests in mind.
* HandicappedBadass: After losing a leg, Hershel does not usually exit the prison since he can no longer run (an inevitability on supply runs, as Daryl notes in season four). However, he quickly proves that he is still perfectly capable in close-combat with walkers, as evident when after a few minutes on his crutches, he ''uses them as weapons to kick walker ass''.
* TheHeart: Takes this job from Dale upon his death, and becomes perhaps the greatest example of this trope on the show. Dale was unwilling to accept killing a living man, deeming that they couldn't come back from doing such a thing. Tyreese later also avoided killing as best as he could. Hershel, on the other hand, believes that you can come back from the horrific things you do to survive, and thus accepts the violent, dangerous world full of horrible people he lives in. He even shows empathy for The Governor at times, though it's clear he'd kill him if it really came to it. After his death, Rick is disturbed to find that the people of Terminus basically became what he could've become if he hadn't had Hershel around to guide him, proving just how vital Hershel's position as TheHeart was to the group.
* HeroicBSOD: He goes into one when Shane proves that the walkers aren't alive and kills all of them in the barn, including Hershel's wife and stepson, and he is forced to face the full reality of the zombie outbreak and the death of his loved ones.
* InformedJudaism: Inverted. He is Jewish by ethnicity and has a Jewish name, but is a deeply religious Christian.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Hershel is very untrusting of Rick's group during their stay on the farm, and does not appreciate their desire to stay permanently. While he was indeed quite a bit of a {{Jerkass}}, events in the latter half of the season prove that his fear of hostile groups invading his farm is perfectly justified when the group encounters Dave and Tony's group.
* KillTheCutie: The lovable, sweet old TeamDad has his head brutally, slowly hacked off by The Governor after being a hostage.
* KindlyVet: He was a veterinarian before the apocalypse.
* LastStand: Tries for one in the second season finale but gets rescued at the last moment.
* TheLeader: He's a part of the council running the prison in the fourth season, and thanks to his wisdom and warm heart, is clearly the one with the most authority, making him the true leader of the prison community until he's captured and executed by the Governor.
* LittleBrotherIsWatching: In Season 4, when the prison has a block full of sick people, he takes extra precautions to make sure none of the patients witness him taking dead bodies from the block. Later during a walker outbreak he draws the walkers away from a cell with two children so they don't see him killing them with a shotgun.
* TheMedic: As a veterinarian, he's the closest thing the group has to a doctor. Also serves as the CombatMedic in Season 3, until he loses his leg.
* MoralityPet: Towards Rick. Hershel is a sort of father figure to Rick, who he looks to for advice to do the right thing. Hershel even smiles proudly when Rick pleads to settle things peacefully with the Governor and his group, claiming that people aren't too far gone and can change from the bad things they have done.
* NiceGuy: After [[TookALevelInKindness warming up to Rick's group]] he essentially becomes Dale's replacement as the moral compass who is compassionate and friendly.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Hershel saving Rick's son and letting the survivors stay on his farm ends up being something he later regrets. His oldest daughter gets into a relationship with Glenn, much to his disappointment. Rick and the survivors refuse to leave the farm and guilt trip him about it. And he watches in disbelief as his family and friends (whom are walkers) in the barn are slaughtered by Shane and the survivors after they find out about it. Not to mention that the Walker invasion of the farm was technically [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Rick's fault]], as it was either the sound of Shane's firearm going off as Rick stabbed him or Carl shooting an infected Shane that alerted the Walker army to the location of the farm, and Hershel gets to watch as many of his friends are eaten alive overrun in the ensuing battle.
* NotThatKindOfDoctor: Hershel reveals to Lori that he's a veterinarian, not a practicing surgeon. This does not comfort Lori at all considering that he's about to attempt a complicated surgical procedure on a critically injured Carl.
* NumberTwo: Along with Daryl to Rick during the third season. He is Rick's closest confidante, [[TheMentor his mentor]], and is let in on things the rest of the group isn't; plus, he and/or Daryl were put in charge several times during Rick's absence. We get a number of scenes where Rick confers with just Daryl and Hershel regarding their next move. Carl even suggests Rick take a break from leadership at one point and hands the reins to Hershel and Daryl. Merle refers to him and Daryl as Rick's "inner circle".
* ObiWanMoment: He gives Rick a warm, knowing smile before his decapitation.
* OddFriendship: With Merle in Season 3. They share two mutual things: they are amputees and they like quoting Literature/TheBible.
* OffTheWagon: Following the barn massacre of the walkers. Luckily, he gets better quickly.
* OffWithHisHead: His ultimate demise, courtesy of the Governor using Michonne's sword, in "Too Far Gone".
* OpenHeartDentistry: After Carl is shot, Hershel has to operate to remove the bullet fragments, but he had only done the procedure on animals before, since he is a veterinarian.
* PapaWolf: Both to his blood relatives and his step-kids.
* ParentalSubstitute: To Rick. Upon Lori's death in childbirth and Rick's subsequent SanitySlippage, he nobly takes it upon himself to more or less raise Judith for Rick while he recovers from his latest loss and arguably becomes the honorary grandfather for both Judith and Carl.
* ThePatriarch: Both of his family and somewhat for the group.
* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: Hershel wouldn't harm a fly if it came down to it, but before his CharacterDevelopment, he initially only refers to Glenn as the "Asian boy", although he never treats him poorly. He later tells Glenn the country was built on immigrants, however. In the same conversation this is averted, as he gives Glenn his father's watch after realizing that Glenn and Maggie are attracted to one another, saying, "No man's good enough for your little girl until one is."
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: In Season 4.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: When he returns to his farm after recovering from his HeroicBSOD, the first thing he says to Shane when he raises his voice? A scathing attack that basically amounts to "Shut up, asshole, you're only here because Rick talked me into it."
* ReligiousBruiser: He is the TokenReligiousTeammate of the group as well as the resident BadassGrandpa.
* SacrificialLion: In season 4, his death takes place alongside the destruction of the prison, the show's setting for a season and a half, and ultimately leads to Rick being forced to retake command of the group.
* SelectiveObliviousness: Towards the fact that walkers are no longer people. Shane shooting one without it dying convinces him he was wrong.
* ShipperOnDeck: He ultimately comes to love and respect Glenn as a worthy man for his daughter, and later happily gives his blessing for Glenn to marry Maggie.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: He wields a pump action shotgun on occasion, most notably one with [[BottomlessMagazines unlimited ammo]] in "Beside the Dying Fire."
* SoProudOfYou: He doesn't actually say anything, but he smiles when Rick gives his speech about how you aren't too far gone to come back from the terrible things you do.
* StepfordSmiler: At the end of "Internment", he puts on a brave, smiling face after finally containing the plague, but the trauma of losing so many friends on his watch causes him to break down and cry once he's alone, and he can't even find solace in the Bible.
* TeamDad: Takes the role over from Dale after he dies, and much more effectively. It helps that he's actually the dad to two members of the group. By Season 3, he advises on how to care for Judith, advises the rest of the groups on relationships, is Rick's main source of advice, and is the one who tries hardest to help Rick with his loosening grip on sanity. He ends up being the TeamDad to the entire prison community in the fourth season, and his death at the hands of the Governor immediately launches everyone into action.
* TechnicalPacifist: He knows how to use a gun, but just doesn't like to.
* TokenReligiousTeammate: One of the few group members to keep any faith in God after the apocalypse started.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: By Season 4, Hershel had basically become the embodiment of everything that was still good in the world. So of course he had to die a horrific death in front of his family and friends.
* TookALevelInKindness: He started as a very untrusting prick before mellowing down to the compassionate TeamDad that everyone loves.
* TragicKeepsake: His watch, which he passed on to Glenn, is still in the group's possession long after his death. After Glenn's death, Maggie passes it on to Enid.
* UndyingLoyalty: After he realizes what the Walkers really are he becomes a very loyal supporter to Rick. At the end of season 2 he is one of only two members in the group, besides Daryl, to still trust Rick's leadership, and by the 3rd season he has taken up the role of TeamDad, giving Rick advice and trying to help him come back from the dark path he is taking. Maggie even mentions in the season 5 finale how he was loyal to Rick and believed in him, and that is the main reason why Maggie herself chooses to believe in Rick as well.
* WhatTheHellHero:
** Was prone to giving these to Rick and his group during their early days on his farm, until he mellowed out. However, during the third season, at the end of his patience with Rick, he yells at him to get his shit together and do something about the threat of Woodbury, raising his voice for the first time in a season. Even Merle looked surprised at his outburst.
** He later rightfully gives Rick hell about considering handing over Michonne to the Governor, and expresses immense disgust at Carl's execution of an ambiguously surrendering Woodbury soldier.
* WhiteShirtOfDeath: Was wearing his IconicOutfit when he died.
* ZombieAdvocate: He considers them merely sick people who could one day be cured until Shane finally demonstrates otherwise by shooting one through various vital organs to no effect. After this, he has no trouble helping to kill walkers.
* ZombieInfectee: Briefly, though Rick manages to amputate his leg. He is one of the few people in the series to survive being bitten by a walker.

!!Maggie Rhee (née Greene)
[[caption-width-right:300:''"I've been fighting since the farm. Can't stop now."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/LaurenCohan

-->''"To sacrifice for each other, to suffer, to stand, to grieve, to give, to love, to live, to fight for each other. Glenn made the decision, Rick. I was just following his lead."''

The oldest daughter of Hershel, Maggie Greene is the most welcoming member of her family to the group. Quickly establishing herself as smart, pragmatic, and dependable, she finds herself quickly falling in love with Glenn Rhee, entering a passionate relationship with him as the Atlanta group and the Greene family integrate. After the fall of the farm, Maggie becomes one of the group's main defenders and scavengers, regularly seen on the frontline, and marries Glenn after the end of the Woodbury War.

Months later, Maggie loses her father to The Governor, and also believes that her sister has perished as well. After a lengthy quest to reunite with her husband, Maggie is elated to find that her sister is alive, but is broken when on the same day, she discovers Beth's death. For weeks, Maggie is despondent, developing a close friendship with Sasha when both of them lose their loved ones, until the group arrives at the Alexandria Safe-Zone. Realizing the community is safe enough for a sustainable future, Glenn and Maggie agree to conceive a child together.

Maggie also begins to step up as a key leader of Alexandria, serving as Deanna's right-hand woman and later as the liaison between Alexandria and Hilltop Colony. When Maggie needs treatment from Hilltop's Dr. Carson, the group tries to get her there, only to be captured by the Saviors. Maggie is then forced to watch Abraham die next to her, and then Glenn is killed after Daryl lashes out. Glenn is able to tell Maggie that he'll find her some day before perishing, and Maggie is the first of the group to get up after their ordeal and demands they fight back. After being taken to Hilltop, Maggie is asked to stay there indefinitely by Dr. Carson, and begins to win the hearts of the locals when she leads the charge in fending off a Savior attack. By the end of Season 7, Maggie has usurped Gregory's position as the leader of Hilltop Colony, and leads her community into war with the Saviors.
* ActionGirl: [[CharacterDevelopment Developed]] [[TookALevelInBadass into one]]. As of Season 3, she begun to show herself able to hold her own along with Rick and the men. By the time the season ends, she's the most skilled gun user of all the women.
* AdaptationalBadass: She's a credible ActionGirl here compared to the comics. In fact, she is the most competent female member of the group in Season 3 until Michonne joins them. But as Michonne isn't a great shot, Maggie is still the group's best ActionGirl in terms of firearms.
* AdaptationalCurves: She's notably [[StatuesqueStunner taller]] and [[MaleGaze well-endowed]] than her comic counterpart.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Compared to her initially fragile comicbook counterpart, she's more assertive and emotionally strong from the get-go. She doesn't suffer from DrivenToSuicide like her comics counterpart does following the destruction of the prison and the death of her family.
* {{Adorkable}}: Some of her earlier flirting with Glenn can come off as this.
* AgeLift: From 19 in the comic to 22 in the show.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She has dark red hair, tall and is usually composed.
* {{Ambadassador}}: In Season 6 she is the diplomat between Alexandria and the Hilltop, and takes little shit from resident asshole Gregory.
* BackToBackBadasses: With Sasha in "Alone" when they were surrounded by walkers near an ice cream truck.
* BadassBoast: When the Governor is about to rape her. It stops the Governor dead in his tracks.
-->'''Maggie''': Just do whatever you're gonna do and ''go to hell''.
* BadWithTheBone: When being held by Governor and Merle, she and Glenn used a walker's bone as weapon to attack Merle and one other {{Mook}}. Said other {{Mook}} is killed by stabbing the bone into his neck, anyway.
* BatterUp: Though Season 3 sees her switch to MacheteMayhem alongside Glenn.
* BattleCouple: With Glenn until his death in Season 7.
* BigEater: In Season 7, since she's pregnant, her appetite really begins to pick up.
* BigGood: Of Hilltop Colony starting in Season 7, [[spoiler:and then for the entire Resistance as of the mid-season finale of Season 8, when Hilltop is the only allied colony left and she plans to rally everyone there for a last stand. She ends up deferring to Rick in the twilight days of the war.]]
* BigSisterInstinct: Towards Beth. Also towards Carl, such as when she scolded Merle when he bluntly said The Governor wants Rick's head.
* BigShutUp: In season 8, she aims a sharp "Shut your damn mouth!" at [[DirtyCoward Gregory]].
* BreakTheCutie: Starts off as a sweet, kindly farm girl who accepts Glenn and his group with open arms, but ends up nearly getting raped, loses her entire family, and also loses her faith by mid-season five. Thankfully, she seems to be rebounding as of the fifth season finale, even if she's no longer the sweet girl she was when we met her.
* BrokenBird: What she has become as a result of the death of her father, her little sister, and her husband.
* BrutalHonesty: When she first had sex with Glenn, she admitted it was partly because she was lonely and her options weren't numerous these days. Afterwards, she claims it was a one time thing. Later she becomes more willing to tell it like it is, as seen when she rips into Gabriel during "Them".
* CallingTheOldManOut: When Hershel wants to kick Rick's group off of the farm, she chastises him, partly because she doesn't want Glenn to leave.
* CharacterDevelopment: Goes from a flirty, feisty farm girl to a wise, powerful and forgiving young woman and the leader of the Hilltop Colony.
* CompositeCharacter: In the comics, Maggie has an older sister. Here, she takes the role of Hershel's eldest child. She also becomes the group's main (female) sniper in this continuity (until Season 5 when Carol and Sasha step up) instead of Andrea, due to the latter becoming an AdaptationalWimp and later [[DeathByAdaptation dying]].
** She also takes aspects from Michonne during the Woodbury arc as she was almost raped by the Governor (though Michonne ''was'' raped) and had a loved one decapitated by him.
* ContraltoOfDanger: She has a fairly deep voice and is an ActionGirl.
* CoolBigSis: To Beth and later a surrogate one to Enid.
* CrusadingWidow: When she's under the impression that Glenn is dead. Later, when he actually does die and the rest of the group is too demoralized to move, she starts making plans to kill the man who did it while grieving over his body and so ill she can barely stand. Negan learns the hard way that you don't want to be on the wrong end of ''this'' CrusadingWidow in the Season 7 finale.
-->'''Negan''': That widow is alive, guns a-blazing!
* DaddysGirl: Maggie was very close to her father. She is seen crying and screaming when the Governor kills him.
* DeathWail: She lets out an agonizing one as her father is slowly, brutally executed that also doubles as an aggressive roar of war, since at the same time she's unleashing hell on The Governor's militia. She gives another agonizing one after seeing Daryl carrying a lifeless Beth out of the hospital. She lets out another one when Glenn's head is smashed twice with Lucille, and once the Saviors leave, is a sobbing, wailing wreck once she finally breaks down.
* DefrostingIceQueen: After having sex with Glenn she tries to claim it was just a one-time thing, but she slowly warms to Glenn and admits she likes him, and later is the first of the two to profess her love for him. Then this trope is flipped when ''Glenn'' has to come around to the idea that he loves her. It paid off, to say the least.
* DistressedDamsel: Kidnapped by Merle alongside Glenn, but gets rescued, even killing one of the guards holding them captive.
* DoYouWantToCopulate: Maggie got right to the point when she wanted Glenn.
-->'''Maggie''': (''grinning'') [[RefugeInAudacity I'll have sex with you]].
* EvilStoleMyFaith: Midway through Season 5, so many bad things have happened that Maggie admits she's lost her faith, but eventually she regains it after the group proves that they're there for her. This is something that sticks around in Season 7, as after Glenn dies, she is still able to find comfort in saying grace with her friends Sasha and Enid.
* FakingTheDead: While she's away at Hilltop in Season 7, Alexandria has dug a grave for her and tells Negan she has died of her illness. This is so Maggie can be at Hilltop for treatment from Dr. Carson without drawing Negan's suspicion about her whereabouts, and so Negan also does not learn of Alexandria's alliance with Hilltop. The ruse is cast off as Maggie personally leads the Hilltop Colony into battle against Negan himself in the season finale, and Negan is shocked to learn of her survival.
* FanservicePack: Helps that she's played by former model Lauren Cohan.
* FarmersDaughter: {{Lampshaded}} by Glenn.
* FieryRedhead: She's never afraid to voice her opinion or back down in an argument.
* ForcedToWatch: She's made to watch the execution of her father, along with the rest of the main cast. It happens again in Season 7, twice, as Abraham is killed right next to her, followed by her husband Glenn just minutes later.
* FriendlySniper: By Season 3, she's easily the best marksman among the female cast and by the end of the season she appears to have become the group's primary sharpshooter. In the Season 2 finale, she indicates that her upbringing on the farm may have had a hand in her proficiency with firearms. By Season 5, she shares this role with Sasha and Carol as the latter [[TookALevelInBadass radically steps up her game]].
-->'''Maggie:''' You grow up country, you pick up a thing or two.
* GoodIsNotSoft: She's one of the most moralistic characters on the show, but she's killed at least three humans, including a Woodbury guard who she [[{{Squick}} stabbed in the throat with a walker bone]]. Notably, the only other unambiguously "heroic" characters to have taken human lives at that point in the series -- not including [[MercyKill Mercy Kills]] -- are Rick and Michonne. And while most of those kills are in some way self-defense, she's one of the few people to flat-out murder someone, since she's [[FriendlySniper a good enough shot]] that she ''intentionally'' killed that militia girl in Woodbury.
* HappilyMarried: Maintains a loving, happy, and healthy marriage to Glenn for several seasons until his death in Season 7.
* HorsebackHeroism: When she saved Andrea at the beginning of Season 2.
* IllGirl: Starting at the end of Season 6, she has complications with her pregnancy, and is more or less rendered helpless until the group can get her to The Hilltop.
* ImportantHaircut: Goes to have a BoyishShortHair near the end of the sixth season around the time she's expecting her first child.
* JackOfAllStats: After becoming a well-rounded ActionGirl in Season 3. She's good with firearms, but not as great as Rick, Daryl, Hershel, or Carl. She's effective in melee combat, but not as competent as Rick, T-Dog, Glenn, or Michonne. Seems to be improving as of season 5, in which her marksmanship is only matched by Carol, Sasha, and Rick.
* KickTheDog: When Gabriel tried to make small talk with her and let her know [[YouAreNotAlone she can talk to him about her family if she needs to]], she snaps at him and chastises him for leaving his flock to die. Gabriel may have needed it, but he ''was'' going out of his way to try to do ''something'' beneficial to the group since he's TheLoad, which is about the nicest thing he does in Season 5.
* TheLeader: She becomes the leader of Hilltop Colony in Season 7 after proving herself to be a much more competent, compassionate leader than Gregory ever was. In Season 8, with [[spoiler:Alexandria and the Kingdom destroyed and everyone forced to flee to Hilltop]] she becomes the leader of the entire resistance.
* TheMaidenNameDebate: There's no indication that she changed her last name after marrying Glenn. She finally changes it in season 7 after his death.
* MsFanservice: She takes off her shirt and bra on more than one occasion, although the ShamefulStrip by the Governor in Season 3 is most definitely [[FanDisservice not fanservice]]. In Season 6, she and Glenn have a nude ShowerOfLove scene and the camera takes a [[MaleGaze long look]] at her from behind.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Ripping into Father Gabriel in "Them" makes Gabriel realize he's TheFriendNobodyLikes and plays a major part in him betraying them to Deanna and begging for them to be kicked out, which Deanna comes dangerously close to considering.
* NonActionGuy: Starting in Season 6 she is trying to sideline herself a bit since she's now pregnant, but will definitely take up arms if the situation calls for it. "The Same Boat" secures her status as a PregnantBadass, and in "Go Getters" she refuses to be kept out of the fight at Hilltop and drives over a bunch of walkers with a tractor. In the Season 7 finale, she leads the people of Hilltop into a massive firefight against the Saviors. In the Season 8 premiere, she jokes that she can keep fighting well into her second trimester and later takes part in the initial attack on the Sanctuary.
* OfficialCouple: With Glenn officially starting towards the end of Season 2 and lasting until the start of Season 7, when Glenn is killed by Negan.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: In [[Recap/TheWalkingDeadS04E15Us "Us"]], she reveals that she deliberately caused the cave-in encountered by Glenn and Tara by unloading her last clip of bullets into the ceiling to cut off a horde of walkers.
* ParentalAbandonment: She has two {{Missing Mom}}s (Hershel remarried). She later witnesses her father being brutally killed in front of her.
* PluckyGirl: She will stop at absolutely nothing in her quest to find Glenn following the fall of the prison. She's at it again in Season 6 when Glenn goes missing.
* PregnantBadass: Although she's trying to reserve herself to the sidelines, Maggie retains her status as a badass during her pregnancy. Ask Paula, Molly and Chelle. After spending a season on the sidelines, she personally leads a group of Hilltop citizens into the massive firefight against the Saviors in the season 7 finale.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Beginning in Season 3.
* PromotionToParent: Helps take care of Lori's baby after her death in Season 3.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She's a kind, compassionate and protective leader once she takes up command of Hilltop.
* RedOniBlueOni: Tends to generate this kind of dynamic when interacting with either Glenn or Beth, acting as the passionate, impulsive red to her husband's or sister's blue.
* RelationshipUpgrade: She and Glenn officially enter their relationship at the end of Season 2 when they have both professed their love for each other.
* ReligiousBruiser: Not as much as her dad, but she's a bonafide devoted Christian and ass kicker. She loses the religious side of this in Season 5 after the loss of her entire family, but regains it in the season finale.
* SexySecretary: Becomes Deanna Monroe's assistant in Alexandria.
* ShamefulStrip: Forced to do this in Season 3 by the Governor.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: After they sleep together a few times, Maggie ultimately falls in love with Glenn because of his kind heart and big brain. When Glenn asks if she would have noticed him if they weren't in an apocalypse, Maggie says that yes, and that she's always had a thing for nice men.
* SoleSurvivor: She is the last remaining member of the Greene family as of Season 5. It's compounded when her husband Glenn is murdered by Negan in Season 7.
* StatuesqueStunner: Stands 5'8 and is good looking.
* TokenReligiousTeammate: After her father dies, her sister gets abducted and killed and Gabriel undergoing a SanitySlippage induced FaceHeelTurn, Maggie becomes the true religious voice of the group until she moves to Hilltop.
* TokenWhite: In the trio with Bob and Sasha in the latter half of Season 4.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The tomboy to Beth's girly girl.
* ToplessnessFromTheBack: In "Cherokee Rose".
* WhatTheHellHero: By the look on her face in "Spend", she is hurt when Gabriel tells Deanna to not trust Rick's group and kick them out of Alexandria.
* WhenSheSmiles: Even after losing so many of her loved ones, Maggie has a radiant, beautiful smile that when seen ''will'' help give people hope for the future again.
* WidowWoman: As of Season 7.
* YankTheDogsChain: A particularly cruel example. After the prison fell, Maggie operated under the mindset that Beth was dead during the second half of Season 4. In the episode from Season 5 "Coda" as she, Glenn and Abe return from their failed trip to DC, she is informed that they have a lead on where Beth is to her shock and delight. It is taken away from her when she arrives at the hospital where Beth is at to see Daryl carrying Beth's dead body in his arms. At which point Maggie [[DeathWail drops to the ground and starts crying.]]
* YouAreInCommandNow: Jesus grooms her to become the new leader of Hilltop to replace the cowardly, incompetent Gregory in Season 7, and she officially takes the mantle in the season finale.

!!Beth Greene
[[caption-width-right:300:''"We don't get to be upset. We all got jobs to do."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/EmilyKinney

-->''"I know [[AudienceMonologue you]] look at me and you just see another [[NonActionGuy dead girl]]. I'm not [[LadyofWar Michonne]]. I'm not [[TookALevelInBadass Carol]]. I'm not [[GoodIsNotSoft Maggie]]. I've survived and you don't get it 'cause I'm not like you or them. But I made it."''

Beth is Hershel's youngest daughter, and the girlfriend of Jimmy. She develops a friendship with Carl and helps keep the groups spirits up through her singing. In Season 4, she has begun a relationship with Zach, a new member of the prison community. She tries to maintain a positive attitude despite all the horrors the group faces, and becomes close to Daryl when they flee the destroyed prison together. Beth ends up being injured and "rescued" by the police officers of Grady Memorial Hospital. She works to escape alongside Noah, but is captured during the attempt and is forced to stay after Carol also injured and captured. Beth is killed by Dawn after stabbing her during a prisoner exchange.
* ActionSurvivor: Though she's definitely not among the most competent fighters in the group, by the beginning of Season 3, she's capable of defending herself if necessary and able to take out walkers without flinching. As of the Season 4 episode "Too Far Gone", it seems she's on her way to becoming a full-fledged ActionGirl, as her father's death motivates her to take an active role in the ensuing battle and she later hits the road with Daryl after the prison is lost and the group is forced to scatter.
* AngstComa: Following the barn walkers being shot and being attacked by her own undead mom. She snaps out of it, but starts thinking about suicide.
* AscendedExtra: One of the best examples in the entire show. In the first half of Season 2, she has a grand total of ''one'' line, even less than [[RedShirt Redshirts]] Jimmy and Patricia. In the second half, she has a storyline largely revolving around more important characters reacting to her being in a catatonic state, eventually recovering and becoming a secondary character, which she remains for all of the next season. In Season 4, she is promoted to a series regular under "Also Starring," and becomes more plot-relevant. In the first half of Season 5, she is added to the main credits and gets [[ADayInTheLimelight her very own major story arc]], which culminates in her death.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Very much averted in Season 5. She has two visible facial wounds ([[MythologyGag Which matches the ones Andrea's comic counterpart has]]) and to make matters worse, she dies via BoomHeadshot.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Easily one of the sweetest members of the group, and she doesn't tend to say too much, but when a fight breaks out between [[TokenEvilTeammate Merle]] and several of the others she responds by storming into the room and firing a pistol into the air to get their attention.
* BoomHeadshot: How she dies in Season 5, courtesy of Dawn.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Behaves this way for a short time after escaping the Prison with Daryl.
* BrokenBird: In Season 2, she outgrows it in Season 3.
* BreakTheCutie: The loss of her mom and brother plus the barn massacre traumatized her pretty heavily. Her emotional state after Jimmy's death isn't really shown due to the time skip between Season 2 and 3, but she seems to have recovered pretty well. Until her death.
* TheBusCameBack: After vanishing before the fourth season finale, she returns in the fourth episode of the fifth season. She dies in the midseason finale.
* CanonCharacterAllAlong: In a way, she ''does'' ended up filling Maggie's dead siblings role in the comics since most of them were either {{Posthumous Character}}s or AdaptedOut.
* CanonForeigner: She never appeared in the comics.
* CartwrightCurse: Both of her romantic interests ended up as zombie food.
* CelebrityParadox[=/=]ProductPlacement: She sang an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EMxAI018Ks unplugged version]] of her actress' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVudemQmgYM own song]] in Season 4.
* CompositeCharacter: Despite being a CanonForeigner, she absorbs traits from comic characters. Like Lacey Greene, she also is distraught during the events at the barn and rushes over in tears, though Beth is saved from being killed. She contemplates around the same point in time as comic Tyreese's daughter Julie, though she survives this one too. Due to the injuries she receives from the Grady Memorial Hospital group, her face is scarred identical to comic Andrea's.
* CoolBigSis: When Carl has PrecociousCrush on her, it's implied that she realized it. But since she's much older than him, the least she can do is act like a big sister to him. Also, after Lori's death, she is the one [[TheLancer Daryl]] asked to keep an eye on Carl since Rick [[SanitySlippage isn't in his best condition]] to be a good father.
* TheChick: Compared to all the women in the group (and cast), Beth fills every aspect of the trope in spades.
* CuteBruiser: Heavy on the cute, low on the bruiser, but the principle is there.
* TheCutie: Of the Prison group.
* DaddysGirl: She has a normal, loving relationship with her father, and Hershel can be quite protective of her. Like Maggie, she was devastated by his death.
* DamselInDistress: She ends up kidnapped in "Alone".
* ADayInTheLimelight: "18 Miles Out". Season 4 also brings us "Still", which serves as a dual day in the limelight for both Beth and Daryl. Her first appearance in season five qualifies as this as well.
* DeadpanSnarker: She has her moments once she starts getting more screentime. She is a teenager, after all.
* DeadStarWalking: Gets promoted to the main cast of season five, but only appears in three episodes and dies in the third, the mid-season finale. Also falls under ADeathInTheLimelight, since this was the most involved Beth had ever been in the plot.
* ADeathInTheLimelight: The entire second quarter of Season 5.
* DespairEventHorizon: Crosses it following the barn massacre of the walkers. She eventually recovers.
* DoomedMoralVictor: Her final act of defiance in stabbing Dawn gets her killed, but it's also the catalyst that frees the Grady Memorial residents from Dawn's oppression when Daryl kills her in retaliation.
* DrivenToSuicide: Halfway through Season 2, she comes to believe there is no hope left in the world, and tries to convince Maggie that they should kill themselves together. When she tries, she only makes a shallow cut on one wrist and can't go through with it. Ultimately, it's InterruptedSuicide.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Her death is ''very'' sudden and anticlimactic; she's instantly killed via a bullet to the brain when Dawn fires her gun by accident, ''after'' the group have already succeeded in rescuing her from the hospital.
* DueToTheDead: A big fan of this, much like her father: she insists on covering up a desecrated corpse even when no-one is around to see it, yells at Daryl for having a little too much fun killing walkers, and finds it "beautiful" that someone would still take the time to embalm corpses during the zombie apocalypse.
* EmotionlessGirl: By Season 4, Beth is starting to edge into this territory; when Daryl tells her that Zach is dead, she responds with a simple "okay" and tells him that she doesn't cry anymore. Later shown not to be true when she breaks down crying at a couple points later in Season 4 during Hershel's execution and after the fall of the prison.
* FanservicePack: Thanks to her wardrobe.
* FarmersDaughter: Not so obvious as with Maggie.
* FlippingTheBird: She gives Daryl the finger when she gets fed up living by his rules, and does it again when the two set a cabin on fire.
* ForcedToWatch: Along with the rest of the prison group in "Too Far Gone" when the Governor executes her father.
* GirlyBruiser: While still more feminine than her older sister, she's a competent-enough ActionGirl in her own right. This is more evident in Season 4.
* GlassCannon: Like Carl, her lack of physical strength puts her at a great disadvantage in situations where she has been taken by surprise, shown most effectively in season 4 episode 10 (''Inmates'') where Daryl has to save her from a relatively low number of Walkers after she wanders off into the forest alone.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: She has light blonde hair, and is by far the most innocent and sweetest character on the show. Which makes [[KillTheCutie her death]] all the more heartbreaking.
* {{Hallucinations}}: An episode after her death, she sings to and comforts the dying Tyreese.
* TheHeart: Nicest person in both Rick's group and the Grady Memorial Hospital.
* HeroicSacrifice: A possible interpretation of Beth's last act. Beth stabs Dawn, knowing Dawn will kill her for it, to get Dawn killed in order to save Noah.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In [[WordOfGod Emily Kinney's own words]], Beth died because of her overconfidence.
* HiddenDepths: Turns out to have quite a pleasant singing voice.
* TheIdealist: After the prison group is scattered in the second half of Season 4, she is the most convinced that there's a chance they might be able to find each other again. Though there are a few hints that her positive attitude is at least partly an act to keep herself motivated.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: Her great quest for her first drink. It's implied to also be an attempt to [[DrowningMySorrows drown her sorrows]].
* TheIngenue: She's by far the sweetest and most innocent character of the group.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: In her game of "I Never" with Daryl, she accidentally brings up a lot of painful memories for him.
* KillTheCutie: In "Coda", the mid-Season 5 finale.
* MoralityPet: To Daryl after traveling together.
* MundaneLuxury: In "Still", she makes time to be a normal teenage girl, trying on nice clothes and spending a lot of effort trying to get her first alcoholic drink.
* NeutralFemale: Initially, but eventually learns to handle herself in a fight.
* NeverSayGoodbye: Beth refuses to say goodbye to Zach before he goes on the supply run, despite him telling her that it could be dangerous. She later tells Daryl that she's glad she didn't say it even though he doesn't return. She also never got to say goodbye to Hershel before his tragic fate, and to Maggie before Beth's ''own'' tragic fate.
* NiceGirl: She's shown to be a soft-spoken and caring girl for the most part.
* OddFriendship: With Daryl starting in Season 4. Bordering on ShipTease at times. Pity nothing will ever come out of it.
* ParentalAbandonment: Her mom has been dead at the start of the story. While her father was brutally killed in front of her.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Until "Arrow on the Doorpost", where she switched to wearing a white blouse. She dons a pink jacket in the Season 3 finale "Welcome to the Tombs", though.
* PromotedToParent: She's the main caretaker for Judith. Lasts until the prison is overran, where the role is taken over by Tyreese.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: While she was promoted to series regular as of Season 4, her name only appeared in the OBB of season 5.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Flees the prison with Daryl once it becomes clear that sticking around is a losing proposition.
* SacrificialLion: In Season 5.
* ShipTease: With Daryl in Season 4 and Noah in season 5. Carl also has a PrecociousCrush on her in Season 3. Sadly, she dies before all of it can go anywhere.
* SmallGirlBigGun: Picks up an assault rifle alongside her sister in "Too Far Gone".
* StepfordSmiler: Shades of it in Season 4. Although on the surface she still appears cheerful and upbeat, her total lack of reaction to her boyfriend's death implies that she has become emotionally numb to trauma. Later, in "Still" she admits that she really just wants to lay down and cry but "they don't get to do that".
* TechnicalPacifist: If firing a pistol just to stop three of her teammates from arguing are any indication.
* TemptingFate: In "Still", she tells Daryl that she knows she will die one day and claims he would badly miss her should she. In "Coda" Beth is killed and Daryl is absolutely heartbroken.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly girl to Maggie's tomboy.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: She managed to survive over and over again, despite being almost useless (except for her singing voice). Then she ups her badass quotient a bit in the fifth season. BoomHeadshot.
* TookALevelInBadass: Pretty much the everyone in the group did (to varying degrees) during the time skip between Seasons 2 and 3, Beth included. She doesn't take part in much on-screen action and is presumably still pretty low tier in her group, but the sole fact that she even ''can'' fight is a huge step up in and of itself.
** During the Season 3 premier, she's briefly seen standing watch with a gun. Later that episode, we see her stabbing walker-heads through a chain link fence and then joining in with the rest of the group as they open fire on the horde.
** After a fight breaks out between Maggie, Glenn, and Merle, she promptly storms into the room and fires a pistol into the air to stop them.
** The death of her father in "Too Far Gone" angered her so badly that she even picked up a rifle and joined in the battle to defend the prison against the Governor.
** She takes another one in "Slabtown".
* UnableToCry: By Season 4, she has gone through so much grief that she tells Daryl that she doesn't cry anymore, even after learning that her new boyfriend Zach has died. She gets over it in "Isolation", after learning Hershel is treating the sick inhabitants of the prison and risking his own life in doing so. However, watching the Governor behead her father shows that she's still got some tears in those ducts.

!Other Hershel Farm Survivors

[[caption-width-right:300:''"I'm responsible. I ain't gonna sit here while this fella takes this on alone."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/PruittTaylorVince

Otis is a farmhand on Hershel's farm. After accidently shooting Carl, he accompanies Shane to recover medical supplies. Shane shot him and left him to be eaten by walkers so he could escape with the supplies.
* AdaptationalCurves: Inverted. His comic counterpart has the more fit appearance.
* AdaptationalHeroism: His comic counterpart is more of a {{Jerkass}} and is TheFriendNobodyLikes.
* AdaptationDyeJob: He had red hair in the comics.
* AgeLift: From the comic version, going from his being in his late 20's to somewhere in his 40's or 50's.
* TheAtoner: He volunteers to get medical supplies to help Carl, who he accidentally shot.
%%* BaldOfAwesome
* DeathByAdaptation: In the comics, he is KilledOffscreen screen in the prison arc by being EatenAlive by walkers and later put down by Rick.
* DeathEqualsRedemption: [[spoiler: The reason why he left with Shane is because he accidentally shot Carl while hunting a buck and wanted to redeem himself to Rick's family. Otis didn't survive the trip because Shane sacrificed him to horde so he can save Carl. Otis did redeem himself in the end, no matter how avoidable the death was.]]
* DevouredByTheHorde: After Shane shoots him in the knee to serve as bait.
* TheLancer: He is Hershel's right-hand man.
* NiceGuy: Unlike in the books, where he's a racist. Otis is torn up over accidentally shooting Carl, and immediately volunteers to help get the medical supplies needed to save him. He also refuses to abandon Shane to the walkers, but this gets him killed, as explained in the NoOneGetsLeftBehind entry.
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: He absolutely refuses to leave Shane behind to be eaten by walkers, but this ends up getting Otis killed as Shane decides that he can't risk them both dying and being unable to get the medical equipment to Hershel, leading him to shooting Otis in the knee and leaving him as a distraction for the walkers.
* SacrificialLamb: Shane made the decision for him.

->'''Portrayed by:''' Jane [=McNeill=]

Otis' wife, she aids Hershel in maintaining the farmhouse. She was eaten by walkers when Hershel's farm was attacked.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Since she dies early, she was not able to betray the group during the prison arc like in the comics.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: Not necessarily intelligence, but levelheadedness and common sense. Saying that her comic counterpart is extremely TooDumbToLive is a ''huge'' understatement.
* AgeLift: From the comic version, going from being in her mid-20's to her mid-40's.
* 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.
* DevouredByTheHorde: 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.
* HappilyMarried: She and Otis appeared to have a very loving relationship.
* RedShirt: Gets very little screen time or characterization before dying.
* WidowWoman: After Otis dies.

[[caption-width-right:300:''"Hershel! It's happened again."'']]
->'''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: He never appeared in the comics.
* DevouredByTheHorde: 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.[[note]]According to Glen Mazzara, James [=McCune=] was terrified during this scene because his greatest fear in real life is this trope.[[/note]]
* ForgottenFallenFriend: To Beth, though this might be partially excusable due to the following episode taking place months later.
* HesNotMyBoyfriend: A weird variation on this trope occurs when Beth decides to take her own life and Maggie, attempting to talk her out of it, cites Jimmy as a reason she has to keep living. While Beth doesn't actually deny that they're a couple, she points out that they were only casually dating for a couple of months prior to the ZombieApocalypse, and that despite the apparent opinions of the rest of the group they're not actually in any sort of committed relationship now.
* 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 becomes much more accurate and is later able to kill a few walkers when the farm is attacked.
* TheGenericGuy: He has pretty much zero discernible character traits.
* NiceHat: He is often seen wearing a straw cowboy hat.
* 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.
