Dave's Group

     Dave 

Dave

"...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.
  • Ambiguously Evil: 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.
  • Boom, Headshot: He was slower at the quick draw than Rick.
  • Canon Foreigner: Never appeared in the comics.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Most of his lines are snarky attempts to get Rick and the others to open up.
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: 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.
  • Knight of Cerebus: 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.
  • Not Using the Z Word: 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.
  • Perma Stubble: Has a trimmed Beard of Evil-esque one

     Tony 

Tony

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.
  • Canon Foreigner: Never appeared in the comics.
  • Coup de Grāce: Rick shoots him once each in the shoulder and gut, then finishes him off with a bullet to the head.
  • Fat Slob: Aside from his unkempt look, he pees on the floor in front of everyone!
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: 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.
  • Perma Stubble: See the picture.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: His concern for "cooz" is disturbingly out of place.
  • Suddenly Shouting: 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.
  • Urine Trouble: It's his inappropriate choice of places to tinkle which drives the point home that he and Dave are probably not good news.

     Randall Culver 

Randall Culver

"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.
  • Ambiguously Evil: We never quite find out whether he's truly dangerous or not before he's murdered by Shane.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: Turns into a walker after Shane snaps his neck, and is put down by Glenn.
  • Asshole Victim: Possibly. Depends on if you believe he really was innocent the whole time.
  • Badass: He manages to take a Walker down despite having his hands tied.
  • Bound and Gagged: How Rick and Shane keep him for most of "18 Miles Out".
  • Butt Monkey: 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.
  • Canon Foreigner: Never appeared in the comics.
  • Car Fu: He crushes a walkers head in while driving in "18 Miles Out".
  • Motor Mouth: Notes this himself, telling Shane he talks a lot when nervous.
  • Neck Snap: How Shane kills him after leading him into the woods.
  • Roof Hopping: He tries this, and fails spectacularly.
  • Saying Too Much: 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. Daryl doesn't believe him.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: 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 

Nate

Portrayed by: Phillip DeVona

Another member of Dave's group.
  • Bit Part Bad Guy: He is a very minor character that gets into a shootout with Rick, Glenn, and Hershel before fleeing.
  • Canon Foreigner: He never appeared in the comics.
  • Deadpan Snarker
    Nate: We're looking for Dave and Tony and nobody checks the damn bar?
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: 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.
  • Revenge Before Reason: 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. After Sean got wounded and Walkers began approaching, he decided fleeing was a better idea.

     Sean 

Sean

Portrayed by: Keedar Whittle

A member of Dave's group who gets killed in the confrontation with Rick, Hershel, and Glenn.

Prison Survivors

     Axel 

Axel

"I mean, I like my pharmaceuticals, but I ain't no killer!"
Portrayed by: Lew Temple

Axel is a two-bit criminal imprisoned for armed robbery with a water pistol. He was trapped in the prison after the Zombie Apocalypse began, where he was pushed around by Tomas and Andrew, causing him to be relieved when Rick's group arrived. He joins the group after Oscar kills Andrew and saves Rick. He is murdered by the Governor during the first Woodbury assault on the prison.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Lacked his comic counterpart's perverted tendencies.
  • Adaptational Wimp: His comic counterpart is The Big Guy of the prison survivors.
  • A Death in the Limelight: In "Home", he gets a lot of focus and some backstory revealed before being shot in the head by the Governor.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After Rick kills Tomas and (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.
  • Boom, Headshot: Courtesy of the Governor, much like his comic counterpart.
  • Bulletproof Human Shield: Becomes this after his death, with Carol being forced to take cover behind his corpse. It works surprisingly well.
  • Casanova Wannabe: 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 because of the short hair — he instantly begins to hit on her. She casually rejects him.
  • The Chew Toy: Was mercilessly bullied by Tomas and Andrew before Rick's group showed up, although Oscar stood up for him before that.
  • Deadpan Snarker: After joining Rick's group has shades of this.
  • Grease Monkey: Mentions to Daryl that he could help give the motorcycle a tune up. Also tries to get the Prison generators working.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Mistakes Carol for a lesbian because she has short hair.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: He is shot in the head by the Governor while he and Carol are in a middle of conversation.
  • Mauve Shirt: The show teases he will become a member of the group. He's then killed during the first raid the Governor makes against the Prison
  • Nervous Wreck: Although this does not stop him from volunteering to help rescue Glenn and Maggie after they get captured by Woodbury.
  • Nice Guy: He spends most of "Sick" attempting to get Rick's group and his fellow prisoners to get along. It really doesn't work, although he and Oscar do manage to earn the groups trust later.
  • Non-Action Guy: He admits that guns make him nervous, and that when he robbed a store he just used a water pistol.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Most of his scenes tend to involve him being put down or having awkward conversations with other survivors.
  • Ship Tease: with Carol. Emphasis on 'tease'.
  • Surprisingly Sudden Death: Gets shot in the head by the Governor out of nowhere.
  • Token White: To the prisoner survivors.
  • Verbal Tic: "You follow me?"

     Oscar 

Oscar

"I ain't never pleaded for my life, and I ain't about to start now. So you do what you gotta do."
Portrayed by: Vincent Ward

Oscar is a prisoner who was forced to go along with Tomas' leadership of the prison survivors. He was in prison for breaking and entering and had a wife and kids. He joined the group after killing Andrew and saving Rick. Oscar is killed in the middle of Season 3 after helping rescue Glenn and Maggie from Woodbury.
  • An Axe to Grind: While clearing the prison, he used an axe as his main weapon.
  • Badass: He shows his badass credentials (which include a 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.
  • Bald of Awesome: He proves to be a useful and brave member of the group, unlike Axel.
  • The Big Guy: After joining the group.
  • Black Best Friend: He and Big Tiny shares this role to Axel. Although between them, he seems to play the trope straighter.
  • Canon Foreigner: He never appeared in the comics. However, his appearance is quite similar to that of Dexter.
  • Defiant to the End: While he isn't killed, Oscar refuses to make a case for his life to Rick after Tomas and (supposedly) Andrew were killed for trying to murder and attack Rick. He states that he has never begged for his life before and won't do it now.
  • Jack of All Stats: Has better agility than T-Dog, but, while still strong, didn't matched his strength and toughness.
  • Mauve Shirt: He gets a little background and a few personality traits before killed off.
  • The Quiet One: He tends to remain pretty quiet in most group discussions.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Of another Bald of Awesome African-American.
  • Throw a Barrel at It: He tosses a barrel at Andrew to prevent him from attacking Rick.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Hope you get some slippers in the afterlife Oscar.

     Andrew 

Andrew

Portrayed by: Markice Moore

Andrew is Tomas' right hand man. He is killed by Oscar after luring a large number of walkers into the prison in an attempt to kill Rick's group.
  • Adaptational Badass: 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 before going mano-a-mano with Rick. It's more than his comic counterpart ever came close to achieving.
  • Adaptational Villainy: He's far more dangerous in this incarnation, making his comic counterpart pale in comparison.
  • An Axe to Grind: When he attacks Rick and Oscar in the generator room he has a big axe as his weapon.
  • Batter Up: He uses a bat as his main weapon when fighting walkers.
  • Black Best Friend: To Tomas.
  • Boom, Headshot: At the hands of Oscar.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Despite only having limited experience with the walkers, he picks up quite a few tactics in order to get revenge on Rick and his group. Namely, using fresh meat and loud noise to lure them in the courtyard to attract MORE walkers, then hiding in the generator room to kill Rick when he comes to shut the alarms off.
  • Disc One Final Boss: For the first half of Season 3.
  • The Dragon: To Tomas, being the only prisoner to follow his orders without protest.
    • Dragon Ascendant: Proves to be far deadlier than Tomas, managing to survive near-certain death, orchestrating a Walker attack on the prison that leads to two major character deaths, and even holding his own in a fight against Rick.
  • Eaten Alive: This was heavily implied to be his fate after Rick locks him in a courtyard with a bunch of walkers, though it is averted when he shows up a couple episodes later orchestrating his revenge.
  • Eye Scream: When he actually does die, Oscar kills him by shooting him in the eye.
  • Friend to Psychos: It looks like Tomas was the weapon that Andrew aimed at the rest of the prison, judging by the rather devastating intellect displayed under From Nobody to Nightmare.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: See the trope below, but Andrew, who just appeared to be Tomas' lackey, managed to cripple the group to the point of being a Hero Killer.
  • Hero Killer: It was Andrew's plan to destroy their security that directly and indirectly leads to the deaths of two notable Atlanta survivors.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Trusts Oscar to be on his side and shoot Rick, after Oscar had just thrown a box at him.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: In his first appearance initially seems like nothing more than a lackey for Tomas, taking an ineffectual swing at Rick and presumably getting himself killed as a result. The next time he's seen is after surviving 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 against Rick.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Apparently dies for it, although he comes back two episodes later and dies anyway.
  • Spanner in the Works: Ruins the safety of the prison, which was formerly almost entirely safe. Setting off the alarms has lured even more walkers to the prison's surrounding area.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Subverted in "Killer Within". Specifically, he survived being Killed Offscreen as in the comics, but he was killed shortly upon his return.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Great job running off into the darkness unarmed, mate. Amazingly, he survives and wrecks havoc on the survivors.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Tomas. For some reason.

     Tomas 

Tomas

"Shit happens."
Portrayed by: Nick Gomez

Tomas is the leader of the prisoners, having held a position of authority even before the Zombie Apocalypse. He does not take kindly to Rick taking charge of the prison. He is killed by Rick after attempting to kill him.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Thomas Richards is an unfit and balding man in the comics. Here, he is given a fit and Badass appearance similar to the Governor's comic counterpart.
  • Adaptational Badass: Thomas Richards is an Action Survivor at best, while Tomas can kick ass if he needs to be.
  • Adaptation Name Change: To complement the Race Lift.
  • Ax-Crazy: After Big Tiny is infected, Tomas immediately takes his pickaxe and destroys his head, hitting it over and over until there is nothing left. Everyone else is extremely freaked out by this.
  • Asshole Victim: Is killed by Rick after trying to slice him with a machete, and after failing that, throwing a walker onto him.
  • Badass: He gets the hang of killing walkers pretty quickly and nearly manages to get Rick killed. He is also sporting a Badass Mustache.
  • Composite Character: Word of God 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.
  • Death by Adaptation: Both of his prisoner counterparts were able to stick long enough in the comics, while he didn't even last a single episode excluding his last minute appearance in the the previous one.
  • 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.
  • Ironic Echo: "Shit happens." In record time, too.
  • The Leader: Of the prison survivors.
  • Race Lift: Tomas' comic counterpart, Thomas Richards, is Caucasian.
  • Starter Villain: For Season 3.
  • Powerful Pick: He uses a small pickaxe as his main melee weapon.
  • Tattooed Crook: Has numerous tattoos covering his body and is likely incarcerated for a violent crime, given how Axe Crazy he is.
  • Underestimating Badassery: He thinks he can push Rick and his crew around, despite having seen the number of walkers they wasted taking the prison. Then he tries to kill Rick and tells him that "shit happens". The machete to his head by Rick was really the only way that situation was going to end.

     Big Tiny 

Big Tiny

Portrayed by: Theodus Crane

Big Tiny is the muscle of the prison survivors who was serving a fifteen year sentence before the Zombie Apocalypse.
  • The Big Guy: The producers described him as the "muscle" of the prison survivors...
  • Black Best Friend: Although he and Oscar share the role to Axel, the latter two seem to be more closer.
  • Black Dude Dies First: Aside from being the first inmate to die, he's also the first living casualty of Season 3.
  • Canon Foreigner: He never appeared in the comics.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He expresses concern for his mother after learning of the walker apocalypse.
  • Ironic Nickname: "Tiny" is anything but.
  • Mighty Glacier: During the prison group's first fight scene, he notably attacks slower than all of them yet delivered the strongest damage to the walkers he's fighting. Too bad that's his only fight scene.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: For the brief time he's on screen, he's only ever addressed by his nickname.
  • Red Shirt: Gets almost zero characterization before being killed.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Dies halfway through his first episode.
  • Zombie Infectee: He gets scratched by a walker while clearing the prison, causing Tomas to kill him.

Rockford Tent City Survivors

     Karina 

Karina

Portrayed by: Ashley Bell

Karina is one of two survivors the walker herd attacking the Rockford tent city.
  • Accidental Murder: She tells Dr. Gale that during the early days of the Zombie Apocalypse, she shot a man in the woods after mistaking him for a walker and he choked to death on his own blood. When a small girl with the man started screaming, Karina panicked and fled.
  • Canon Foreigner: She never appeared in the comics.
  • Driven to Suicide: After she thinks Paul died, she decides she doesn't want to be the Sole Survivor of her group and asks Doctor Gale to help her commit suicide with drugs.
  • My Greatest Failure: In the above mentioned Accidental Murder, Karina knows that she left that little girl to die alone in the woods, and thinks that she will also die alone as punishment.
  • The Promise: Like all members of her group, she swore an oath upon joining that "One lives. All live." The burden of thinking she is the only one left breaks her, and she commits suicide.
  • Sole Survivors: She and Paul are the only members of their group to survive the walker attack on their camp. After thinking that Paul has died, Karina decides she doesn't want to be the only one left and commits suicide.

     Paul 

Paul

Portrayed by: Wyatt Russell

Paul is the other survivor of the walker herd attack on the tent city. He was injured during the attack, causing Karina to desperately search for medical supplies to treat him.
  • All There in the Manual: It's revealed he chained the hospital cafeteria doors and painted "DONT OPEN DEAD INSIDE" on them.
  • Badass: When he awakens in a locked room full of walkers strapped down to a medical gurney, not only does he manage to free himself, but he is able to improvise a few weapons to kill a few walkers before finding a gun and being able to escape.
  • Canon Foreigner: He never appeared in the comics.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted: There are two other Paul's in The Walking Dead TV universe: one at Woodbury, and the other a minor character in the Dead Reckoning flash game.
  • The Promise: Like all members of their group, he swore an oath upon joining that "One lives. All live." When he discovers that Karina killed herself when she thought he was dead instead of living up to the oath, he is disappointed and angry, but swears to live up to it himself and takes walker!Karina with him.
  • Sole Survivors: He and Karina are the only ones who escape the walker attack on their group. He becomes the only survivor after Karina commits suicide.

Martinez' Group

     Mitch Dolgen

Mitch is Pete's older brother. He was a tank operator in the army, but abandoned his post with his tank shortly after the Zombie Apocalypse started.

Pete is Mitch's younger brother, and was part of the army like him. He was stationed at Fort Benning before abandoning his post and joining his brother.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: He reanimates after being dumped in a nearby lake by the Governor, with a chain attached to his ankle to weigh him down.
  • Canon Foreigner: He never appeared in the comics.
  • The Chains of Commanding: Feels them immediately after taking the camp leadership position following the death of Martinez, as he mentions to Brian while the two were having a conversation.
  • Dragon Ascendant: He goes from The Dragon (more of the Dragon Their Feet) to the leader in "Dead Weight" after Martinez's death.
  • In the Back: Gets it both literally and figuratively in "Dead Weight", courtesy of the Governor.
  • Nice Guy: He refuses to kill or steal supplies from other survivors, instead wanting to have them join their group. His attitude ultimately gets him killed, as the Governor sees him as weak.
  • Number Two: To Martinez.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Pete is the more level-headed, compassionate of the two Dolgen brothers.
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: The reason that he's taken out of power by the Governor, who stabbed him in the back figuratively and literally.

     Alisha 

Alisha

Portrayed By: Juliana Harkavy

Alisha was in the army reserve before the Zombie Apocalypse.

The Claimers

     In General 

A small group of marauders in Georgia led by Joe who come into conflict with the group. They have strict rules about "claiming" supplies and not violating another's claim, under penalty of beatings or even death.
  • Adaptation Expansion: They are given more characterizations in the show than in the comics.
  • Adaptation Name Change: They are called the Marauders in the comics.
  • Age Lift: The Marauders are in their late 30s to mid 40s in the comics, while majority of them are Badass Grandpas in the show.
  • Asshole Victims: Every single one of them had it coming.
  • Canon Foreigner and/or Decomposite Character: Either one since there are only three Marauders in the comics while there are seven Claimers in the show.
  • Mooks: Harley, Billy, and Lou.
  • Named by the Adaptation: All members of the Marauders are nameless characters in the comics.
  • Obviously Evil: They dress in black, look particularly rough, all tote impressive weaponry, and casually talk about theft and rape.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Their whole philosophy of taking what you want by calling 'dibs' and the like smacks of stunted emotional growth. Joe in particular acts like a strict parent enforcing rules among chaotic, simple-minded children.
  • Red Shirt: Lou, who is killed by Rick in his first scene.
  • Revenge: They trek towards Terminus, a not particularly safe action, just to kill Rick for fatally choking Lou and then setting a walker on them.

    Joe 

Joe

"Why hurt yourself when you can hurt other people?"
Played By: Jeff Kober

"Seems to me that things are just starting to fall together. At least for guys like us."

The leader of the Claimers. After a brief encounter with Rick, Carl, and Michonne, Joe's group finds and recruits Daryl.
  • Badass: Since he's the leader of a gang of vicious killers and opportunists, he pretty much has to be to keep his head attached to his neck.
    • Badass Grandpa: He's notably much older than his gang and can kick ass.
  • Beard of Evil: He has a goatee beard and is evil.
  • Berserk Button: Don't lie to him, or say something that he believes is a lie, or he will order his people to beat you to death.
  • Big Bad: Of the second half of Season 4.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Rick's the proverbial dragon. As expected, it gets Joe killed.
  • Disc One Final Boss: Of the Season 4 finale. He's killed by the middle of the episode.
  • Evil Laugh/Evil Gloating: Holding Rick on gunpoint and laughing about how he and his friends will rape Carl, then Michonne, then kill Daryl, and finally kill him.
  • Evil Mentor: Joe is a brutal killer, but he has a soft spot for Daryl and quickly takes him under his wing.
  • Evil Virtues: Sure, he's evil, but Joe is pretty big on honesty.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Sure, he is the leader of a group of murderers and would-be rapists, but he's remarkably polite, affable and fair-minded (particularly to Daryl), but later he crosses over into this trope while talking to Rick when he and his group are preparing to rape and murder Rick's group:
    Joe: Look we can settle this, we're reasonable men. First we're gonna beat Daryl to death, then we'll have the girl, then the boy, then I'm gonna shoot you and then we'll be square. {Laughs sadistically}
  • Flunky Boss: Rick, Daryl and Michonne fought him alongside his Mooks.
  • Honor Before Reason: An odd example. He's by no means good, but he follows the rules he sets and is quite willing to be reasonable with people.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: His casual and gleeful murder of Len, one of his own group members was ruthless, but it's hard to feel any sympathy for Len.
  • The Leader: Of the small group of marauders.
  • Man Bites Man: He's on the receiving end of this courtesy of Rick, who is unarmed and disoriented from the sound of a gunshot blast and having been beaten by Joe. Papa Wolf Rick literally rips Joe's throat out with his teeth.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: His rules and his judicious application of them are probably the only reason his group hasn't fallen apart. He also does not punish Daryl for not claiming the rabbit because he's aware Daryl is new. In fact, he even makes sure to hear out what's going on between his group if an argument breaks out.
  • Would Hurt a Child: One of the reasons that he gets killed.

    Len 

Len

Played By: Marcus Hester

"You see the rules of the hunt don't mean jack out here. Now that rabbit you're holdin' is claimed, boy. Claimed whether you like it or not."

A compound-bow wielding marauder under Joe's command.
  • The Archer: He's a proficient archer.
  • Asshole Victim: While he was murdered for a petty reason, he clearly had it coming.
  • Beard of Evil: Has a beard and is obviously evil.
  • Death by Adaptation: It isn't clear who his Marauder counterpart is, but they all died together.
  • The Dragon: The most prominent of Joe's group.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Clearly didn't expect Joe to spot him trying to frame Daryl.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Choking Tony unconscious simply to sleep in his bed.
  • Hate Sink: He exists mainly to show that yes, people are capable of being jerks for no reason what so ever.
  • Hoist By Their Own Petard: Tried to frame Daryl for stealing his rabbit half but instead Joe has the group punish him for lying because he saw him do it. The result? He gets killed.
  • Hypocrite: Nearly starts a fight with Daryl when he said he "claimed" the rabbit. Joe points out he hardly knew that himself.
  • Jerkass: Chokes out group members for beds, and calls dibs on taking Daryl's jacket when the marauders first encounter him. He also shoots and calls dibs on a rabbit Daryl is about to kill before taunting him about why he is acting all depressed.
    Len: You know, I bet there's a bitch, got you all messed up, am I right? Got you walking around here like a dead man, you just lost yourself a piece of tail, must've been a good'un'. Tell me something, was it one of the little'uns? 'Cause they... don't last too long out here.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: The recipient of one that results in his death for trying to frame Daryl.
  • The Rival: To Daryl.

Fr. Gabriel Stokes

Portrayed By: Seth Gilliam

Gabriel Stokes is a priest encountered by Rick's group of survivors after fleeing from Terminus. He holds refuge in a church.

     Clara 

Clara

Portrayed By: Kerry Condon

Clara is an Irish survivor who became stuck in Georgia with her husband Eddie after the airports were shut down. She encounters Rick in the Season 4 premiere, asking for help getting food to her walker husband.

  • Canon Foreigner: She never appeared in the comics.
  • Driven to Suicide: She stabs herself in the stomach after failing to kill Rick to feed to her walker-head husband, unable to live with the things that she and her husband have done to survive and wanting to become like him.
  • Eternal Love: In a twisted way. Not only does she want to feed the undead head of her husband, she then takes her life to be like him.
  • Expy: She may have been influenced by The Stranger from The Walking Dead game, who also lost his mind after losing his loved ones in the woods, and spoke to their zombified head in a bag.
  • Ill Girl: It is clear she's suffering from undernourishment and the effects of being forced to eat even rotten food.
  • Sanity Slippage: She has clearly become unhinged, as Rick discovers when her husband is just his decapitated walker head.

     Ana 

Ana

Portrayed By: Brina Palencia

A girl Rick and Carol found hiding in a house while they were looking for medical supplies. She's quite inexperienced with walkers and has managed to stay unusually optimistic with the help of her boyfriend Sam.
  • Bury Your Disabled: Her leg didn't heal well after she got trampled, meaning if she was ever chased by walkers, she wouldn't make it very far, so this combined with the fact that Rick was hesitant to add more people to the group made it unlikely that she was going to last long after leaving the house she was hiding in.
  • Canon Foreigner: She never appeared in the comics.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Due to her badly-healed leg.
  • Eaten Alive/Killed Off Screen: Rick and Carol finds her badly-healed leg severed from her body and the rest of her being devoured by walkers.

  • The Cutie: Like his girlfriend, he's unusually optimistic and trusting.
  • Slashed Throat: After being hit in the head by a bat, a Termenite cuts his throat over a trough.
  • Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome/Back for the Dead: He's the first casualty of season five, having been captured and then slaughtered like a pig by Terminus during the opening. Rick recognizes him and is unable to help him.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He never shows up at the rendezvous after heading to the greenhouse, but his body is never seen either, leaving his fate unknown until the first episode of Season five.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Oddly, he claims to like people more now in the Zombie Apocalypse, instead of being mistrustful or weary of them like most other survivors. Considering his fate, he should've thought better
