[[folder: Tyreese]]
->'''Portrayed by''': Chad Coleman

Tyreese is the leader of a small group of survivors, including his younger sister Sasha, that discover the prison. His neighbor Jerry helped them survive the initial outbreak in a bunker, but they later left and joined a group of 25 people that slowly got whittled down. After briefly joining Woodbury with his sister, he joins the remaining citizens of the town in moving to the prison. He begins a relationship with Karen after settling into the prison.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Tyreese is much nicer, compassionate, and diplomatic compared to his comic counterpart.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Invoked, but ultimately subverted in Season 3. He joined Woodbury[[note]]Tyreese never joined The Governor in the comics. In fact, The Governor was the one who killed him.[[/note]] after Rick [[SanitySlippage kicked them off]] the prison, forcing him to find another safe place for his group and Woodbury is the only available option. Once there, he and his group decided to help the Governor in his "war". Despite this, Tyreese has remained a good person, acting very reluctant to harm the prison group, and protesting the use of walkers against them. He even flat-out refuses to take part in the second prison attack during the Season 3 finale and joins Rick's group after learning the truth about the Governor.
* AssKickingEqualsAuthority: He is the most capable fighter of his group, hence the leadership.
* ATeamFiring: He's almost worthless when using a gun. It takes him four shots to hit a very slow moving walker with a sniper rifle. In "30 Days Without An Accident", he misses a couple of very close range shots with a handgun.
* {{Badass}}: Dispatches walkers with complete ease using only a hammer. He's also sporting a BadassBeard.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Tyreese is one of the kindest and most decent people on the show. When Allen attacked him near a pit of walkers though, Tyreese almost threw him in. In Season 4, [[spoiler: Karen's death sends him into a massive fit.]]
* BrotherSisterTeam: With Sasha.
* DecompositeCharacter: Due to debuting much later than his comicbook counterpart, his roles for the first two seasons were filled by T-Dog (received his backstory as an ex-football player), Shane (as TheLancer with the LoveTriangle gone bad story line) and Daryl (received his character relationship with Carol, as well as TheLancer after Shane's death).
* DropTheHammer: When first shown, he's using a small sledgehammer as a weapon.
* ForgivenButNotForgotten: [[spoiler: When Carol admits she murdered Karen (and David), Tyreese almost breaks a table and seems to consider shooting her. Ultimately he forgives her when Carol tells her reasons, and that Karen's death was quick.]]
* GentleGiant[=/=]NiceGuy: He's the only one who shows nothing but gratitude to the prison group for saving and harbouring them. He is also very disturbed by having to kill walkers, particularly when stabbing them through the prison fence.
* HeroicBlueScreenOfDeath: He goes through this when he finds [[spoiler: Karen and David's charred bodies in the prison yard. And then there's Sasha falling sick. He so affected by both events that he remains several seconds inside a walker surrounded car -- with an open door -- during the mission led by Daryl to find antibiotics]].
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With his sister.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: To Allen, after he antagonized Tyreese out of petty jealousy and advocated the use of walkers against the prison group.
-->'''Allen''': I'll protect [my son].\\
'''Tyreese''': Oh, like you protected Donna?
* LargeAndInCharge: He twice as big as the rest of his group and clearly in command of them.
* TheLeader: Of his small group. After joining the community at the prison, he steps out of the leadership role.
* LightningBruiser: He's very agile for a guy his size.
* LoveInterest: For Karen, with the two of them become a couple in the TimeSkip between Season 3 and 4.
* MartialPacifist: Tyreese can definitely kick ass, but he always chooses to be diplomatic.
* TheOneGuy: After [[spoiler: the fall of the prison]] in the latter half of Season 4, he is the only man in a group consisting of Lizzie, Mika and Judith and is later joined by Carol.
* OneManArmy: Episode 3 of Season 4 showed him demolishing a horde of walkers all by himself.
* OnlySaneMan: The most level headed of his group.
** SanitySlippage: [[spoiler: After Karen is murdered]].
* PapaWolf: To the children in general, but it's most evident in the second half of Season 4.
* PlotArmor: Clumsily running in the open field, with his wardrobe-size frame, while in close range of shooters during the 3rd Prison Attack.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Promoted to series regular for Season 4.
* PromotionToParent: In the beginning of the second half of Season 4 for Lizzie, Mika, and Judith.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to his sister's red.
* ScaryBlackMan: Subverted. Tyreese is nice, reasonable, compassionate, and shows nothing but gratitude to the prison group for harboring his group but when he finds out that[[spoiler: Karen has been killed and her body has burned]], he becomes violently angry.
* SixthRanger: Subverted for Rick's group in "The Suicide King". Played straight for Woodbury in "I Ain't No Judas", although he is having second thoughts. Played straight to Rick's group as of "Welcome To The Tombs".
* SleevesAreForWimps: Always wearing A-shirts until fall comes late Season 3.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Justified as he debuted much later than his comic counterpart. [[spoiler: He was the first fatality of the prison attack in the comics, but he survived in the show. In "Too Far Gone", Hershel actually suffers the death Tyreese had in the comics.]]
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: To Oscar, and, by second degree, to T-Dog, as the [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni]] [[TokenMinority black man]] set to be a member on the heroes' side.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Tyreese is the only member of his team who isn't an UngratefulBastard and is levelheaded. While his sister isn't an UngratefulBastard, she's very HotBlooded and argumentative, while Donna was given no characterization due to her [[DeathByAdaptation early death]]. This becomes a factor when they arrived in Woodbury, where he is one of the few ready to argue against the Governor's decisions.
* TokenMinority: In the latter half of Season 4. Aside from being TheOneGuy above, he is the only black person of said group.

[[folder: Sasha]]
[[caption-width-right:300:''"I don't believe in magic or luck, I do the math and I don't gamble."'']]
->'''Portrayed by''': Sonequa Martin-Green

Sasha is Tyreese's younger sister and [[WordOfSaintPaul was a firefighter]] before the ZombieApocalypse. After joining the prison group, Sasha becomes part of a council that leads the growing community.
* ActionGirl: She shows off some pretty sweet shovel swinging skills in her introductory episode, and during the run to the department store, she shows she is just as adept with a gun and creating {{Improvised Weapon}}s.
* AdaptationalBadass: If you consider Julie as her comic book counterpart.
* AdaptationNameChange: If she is indeed Julie's TV counterpart.
* BackToBackBadasses: With Maggie in "Alone" when they were surrounded by walkers near an ice cream truck.
* BrotherSisterTeam: With Tyreese.
* CanonForeigner: Never appeared in the comics, although she appears to be taking the place of Tyreese's daughter, Julie.
* TheCassandra: She points out that Terminus seems too good to be true when Maggie and Bob are dead set on heading there, and warns that it's more likely to be another Woodbury than the safe haven it purports to be. [[spoiler: Naturally, it turns out to be even worse.]]
* TheCynic: Her experience at Woodbury and the [[spoiler:fall of the prison]] make her skeptical about the signs for Terminus promising safe-haven. While Maggie and Bob want to push on to Terminus to find safety and maybe other members of their group, Sasha doesn't believe they will ever find the others again and simply wants to find a safe building and stay put.
* {{Determinator}}: While stuck in quarantine she fights through her own sickness to assist Hershel in treating others who have fallen ill until she literally passes out from exhaustion and dehydration.
* HotBlooded: She gets riled-up easily.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With her brother.
* ICanStillFight: It takes a ''lot'' of cajoling by Hershel to convince her that she needs to take rests while she is sick.
* IllGirl: Has fallen victim to a serious illness [[spoiler:that has killed more than a few people]] in Season 4. She gets better.
* ImprovisedWeapon: When her gun jams in "[[Recap/TheWalkingDeadS04E0130DaysWithoutAnAccident 30 Days Without An Accident]]" during a fight against walkers in a department store, Sasha grabs a pool cue, breaks it in half, and begins killing walkers with both halves.
** In the latter half of Season 4, she uses a long sharpened stick [[WordOfSaintPaul that she made herself]] as her primary melee weapon.
* TheLancer: She is her brother's most trusted teammate and the second most capable fighter of her team after him, but also has a much more confrontational personality than he does.
* TheLeader: In Season 4, she is part of a council that runs the group at the prison, alongside Daryl, Carol, Glenn, and Hershel.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Promoted to series regular for Season 4.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Tyreese's blue.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Starts wearing one in Season 4.
* ShipTease: With Bob.
* ShovelStrike: Originally appeared with a shovel as her weapon.
* SixthRanger: Subverted at first, but played straight at the end of Season 3.

[[folder: Allen]]
->'''Portrayed by''': Daniel Thomas May

Allen is Donna's husband. He and his family were the first survivors to join Tyreese and his sister. After they join Woodbury, Allen joins the Governor's militia and adapts easily to the job. He is killed by the Governor when he massacres the militia.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: His comicbook counterpart is fatter.
* AdaptationalVillainy: The guy is a douchebag compared to his comic counterpart.
* AssholeVictim
* BeardOfEvil
* BoomHeadshot: Gets shot by the Governor after drawing a gun on him after the Governor killed the rest of the Woodbury militia.
* CompositeCharacter: Some of his more violent traits seem to stem from comic-Tyreese's unnamed best friend, whom according to Tyreese had tried to kill him some weeks before meeting the group.
* CrusadingWidower: His wife died in their debut, and his grief/desire to protect his son motivates many of the actions he takes afterwards.
* DeathSeeker: When Tyreese holds him near the Woodbury Walker pit, he yells at Tyreese to drop him.
* DecompositeCharacter: His CharacterDevelopment from the comics is given to a not-so CanonForeigner named Ryan Samuels for the show.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He draws his gun after showing disgust at the Governor gunning down the Woodbury militia. It doesn't do him much good, however, and the Governor shoots him in the head.
* GreenEyedMonster: He is jealous that his wife looked to Tyreese for protection after he saved Donna's life.
* Jerkass: Is generally rude and unpleasant to everyone except for his family.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: To be fair, he only started acting maliciously after failing to protect his wife.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: Ben dies in Merle's ambush of the Woodbury militia, which Allen blames on the prison survivors and motivates him to seek revenge on them.
* TheSocialDarwinist: Flavor 4: he thinks that society had degraded to the point where only the fit survive, and sees that as enough justification to take over the prison.
* SourSupporter: For Tyreese.
* TooDumbToLive: Pulls his gun out on The Governor right after the latter kills the Woodbury Militia, and instead of shooting him right there he hesitates and does nothing. This predictably gets him killed a few seconds later.
* TokenEvilTeammate: The most malicious and ill-minded member of Tyreese's group.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Badly underestimates Carl, had he gone through with his plan to take the prison he likely would have been shot for his troubles.
* UngratefulBastard: Despite all the help the group gave him and the others, he wants to try and take their weapons and the prison for themselves. He also hates Tyreese for saving Donna's live prior to their introduction to the show.
* WouldHurtAChild: Yes, yes he would. When he suggests Tyreese and Sasha in order to take over the prison that they would need to kill everyone living there, [[WhatTheHellHero they call him out on this]] after they pointing that there was a baby in the mix as well.

[[folder: Ben]]
->'''Portrayed by''': Tyler Chase

Ben is the son of Allen and Donna. He joins the Woodbury militia alongside his father. He is shot and killed by Merle when the militia is ambushed by him.
* AccidentalMurder: ZigZagged. Merle was aiming for The Governor when Ben accidentally blocked his shot, but the actual plan aside from killing The Governor is to take out as many Woodbury militia as he can.
* AdaptationalHeroism: ''Very'' relatively, but compared to his comic counterpart, who 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.
%% * AdaptationalWimp
* AgeLift: From around 6 or 7 years old in the comic to a teenager in the show.
* CoincidentalDodge: Inverted, he coincidentally wanders into Merle's aim, taking a bullet meant for the Governor completely by chance.
* CompositeCharacter: Possibly. He has a twin brother in the comic books, but he's the only child here.
* DeathByAdaptation: His comic book counterpart was executed by Carl around the cannibals arc.
* DecompositeCharacter: His CharacterDevelopment from the comics, specifically the CreepyChild[=/=]EnfantTerrible storyline, was given to DarkActionGirl Lizzie Samuels for the show.
* DemotedToExtra: His comic counterpart is TheRival of sorts to Carl. Here, he is a MauveShirt who is killed off before any CharacterDevelopment.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Gets shot in the neck 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 walker's head.
* MauveShirt: Killed off 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.

* AdaptationDyeJob: Donna is blond in the comics.
* AmbiguouslyBrown[=/=]RaceLift: While Donna was white in the comics, this Donna appears to be Hispanic or of MixedAncestry.

* DemotedToExtra: In the comics, Donna was around for the first arc and a half before being killed.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Her clothes are pink.
* RedShirt: Given none of the characterization her comic book counterpart received.
