     Abraham Ford 

Sergeant Abraham Ford

Portrayed by: Michael Cudlitz

Abraham is a soldier with one goal in mind: getting Eugene to Washington D.C. to stop the Zombie Apocalypse.
  • Badass: He is a crack-shot and wields a crowbar with deadly efficiency.
    • Badass Mustache: Has a handlebar mustache, something the comic fans were very happy got carried over.
  • Blood Knight: Abraham clearly enjoys killing walkers, which freaks Tara out a bit since she has never seen anyone smile while putting them down.
    • Lampshaded in this conversation:
    Glenn: I'm sorry I punched you
    Abraham: I'm not. (smiles) I like to fight.
  • Fiery Redhead: He's a strong, aggressive, and determined character with a bit of a temper problem.
  • Hero of Another Story: Leads his own group prior to being introduced.
  • Jerkass: If telling Glenn that Maggie probably is dead and it would be a waste of time to look for her, then having the nerve to fight him after Glen justifiably punches him doesn't count, then what else does?
    • Jerkass Has a Point: However he is right in saying that it's risky to go after Maggie when possibly curing the zombie disease requires extra help.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's actually a good person under it all; case in point, he hands supplies over to Glenn and Tara after they initially plan on parting ways, showing that he cares about their well-being.
  • Kick the Dog: Telling Glenn that Maggie was probably dead, after Glenn has no clue where she is, counts for sure.
  • The Leader: Seems to be the leader of his small group, although Eugene actually seems to be calling the shots on their destination and any side trips they might undertake.
  • Official Couple: He and Rosita are apparently an item, much as they are in the comics, though it's not something that's especially obvious from watching them in the show.
  • Red-Headed Hero: He is a red-headed hero on a quest to try and save the world.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Says shit quite a bit, and also drops the amusing line "son of a dick".
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He wants to stop the Zombie Apocalypse, but if you slow him down he'll not hesitate to beat the shit out of you.

     Eugene Porter 

Doctor Eugene Porter

Portrayed by: Josh McDermitt

Eugene is a scientist who claims that he knows what caused the Zombie Apocalypse and needs to get to Washington D.C. to stop it.

     Rosita Espinoza 

Rosita Espinoza

Portrayed by: Christian Serratos

Rosita is in a relationship with Abraham and assists him in protecting Eugene.
  • Action Girl: She's shown to be quite skilled with a gun and doesn't show any concern about Walkers.
  • Adaptational Badass: Her comic counterpart is more-or-less The Chick and nothing else.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Wears her shirt tied into a knot so her midriff is exposed.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She seems to be permanently exasperated by the antics of her companions, and rolls her eyes so often it's a wonder they don't get stuck that way.
  • Guns Akimbo: She carries a pair of pistols, one of which being is a two-tone SIG-Sauer P228.
  • Like Brother and Sister: With Eugene, complete with sibling-esque bickering.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Thanks to the trope above and the tiny shorts.
    • Averted from her third episode onwards, however, when she dons much less revealing clothing as winter approaches.
