    Michonne 

Michonne

"You can't stop me from helping you."
Portrayed by: Danai Gurira

Michonne is a mysterious hooded survivor who saves Andrea after the attack on the farm. The two of them traveled together for several months as of the beginning of the third season. She used two armless and jawless walkers to carry supplies and ward off other walkers, only telling Andrea that they were barely men before becoming walkers. After joining Rick's group, she starts becoming more open and friendly while serving as a main fighter.
  • Action Girl: By far the most adept female at fighting walkers on the show.
  • Action Mom: Though her baby is long dead.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Her humanity is more evident here than the comics. Her questionable actions from the comic were also Adapted Out.
  • Adaptational Modesty: Her comicbook counterpart Really Gets Around. This incarnation (thankfully) doesn't.
  • Angry Black Man: Or, in this case, Angry Black Woman. At Woodbury, especially towards The Governor and Merle. She mellows towards the latter when she notices his guilt.
  • Arch-Enemy: For The Governor.
  • Badass: The most competent physical Action Girl in the series.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: As The Governor soon found out.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Her debut shows her saving Andrea from a walker by cutting its head off.
    • Stabbing the Governor to save Rick in the second attack on the prison.
  • Black Cloak: Her hooded jacket.
  • The Cassandra: She was immediately able to sense that the Governor (and by extension, his men) is someone who shouldn't be trusted and warned Andrea. Andrea being Andrea...
  • The Cavalry: Served in this role to Andrea at the end of the second season.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: The death of her son caused her to become very cynical and withdrawn.
  • Cry Cute: When she saw Andrea dying. In Season 4, she does this after holding Judith.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She lost her son early in the apocalypse, and it is implied that her boyfriend killed him in what he thought was a Mercy Kill.
  • Death Glare: Appears to be her permanent facial expression, but she gets better as she starts to open up to Rick's group.
  • Dead Person Conversation: Sometimes talks with her dead boyfriend.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen:
    • She seems to be mostly out for herself, but still tries to help the prison group in Season 3. And then there's her sad reaction to Penny... before learning she is a Walker.
    • In "Clear", she opens up to both Carl and Rick, showing her soft side and helping them with both their problems. As a result, they accept her into the group.
    • Season 4 delves into her past and, as a result, we learn her initial frostiness was because of grief due to a traumatic event prior to discovering Andrea in the forest at the end of season 2. Carl primarily learns this information and Michonne becomes more affectionate and protective of him, eventually crediting he, Rick and Andrea for helping her through her pain.
  • Dreadlock Warrior: Female example.
  • The Drifter: Prefers traveling then trying to find a place to settle down safely, until the joins the group at the prison, although it still takes her a few months to decide to stay permanently.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Her brown leatherette glovelettes.
  • Genre Savvy: Figures out something's off about Governor the moment she meets himnote . Also the way she had her Human Pack Mule.
  • Glass Cannon: She's good on the offensive. However, her opponents weren't usually able to hit her back, and when she's traveling alone she can't treat her own injuries.
  • Good Is Not Soft: She may be one of the noblest characters, but she doesn't hesitate to kill if necessary.
  • Heroic BSOD: In the fourth season, after the fall of the prison, she lapses into her original behavior, captures and maims two zombies like her previous "companions", and joins a herd. Eventually snaps out of it, wipes out the herd, and rejoins Rick and Carl.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Andrea.
  • Hidden Depths: In "Clear", she turns out to relate very well with Rick, having gone through the same mental trauma. She also displays a soft side with Carl, helping him get a photo of his mother, and generally acting in a weird, cool bodyguard/aunt combination. In fact, when she's around Carl, she tends to reveal she can be downright nerdy, as she apparently goes out scavenging for comic books that the two can share.
  • Human Pack Mule: She used two walkers to carry supplies around.
  • Iconic Outfit: The headband and bright colored tank tops she's seen wearing much of the time.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Carl.
  • In the Hood: In the Season 2 finale.
  • I Work Alone: When she's leaving Woodbury and Andrea refuses to go with her, Michonne claims that she just slowed her down anyway. In Season 4, she goes out on scavenging runs by herself, as well as to look for the Governor. However, in "Indifference", she decides to end her hunt for him and stay at the prison.
  • Lady of War: Cool and collected, she's usually seen disposing of walkers with grace and quickness.
  • Last Episode New Character: In Season 2.
  • Mama Bear: Michonne's very quick to protect Carl and spends days tracking him down in "After".
  • Master Swordsman: Or, in this case, Swordswoman. She's very skilled with that sword of hers, to say the least, and in Season 5 we're informed that she's self-taught, having acquired the weapon after the start of the apocalypse and learning its use via the "School of Hard Knocks" method.
    • She actually lost her sword in Season 5's premiere, and in the next episode had to resort to bashing a walker's skull in after remembering she never got it back. She found it with the belongings of the Terminus survivor she'd just slaughtered.
  • No Social Skills: Good against walkers, not that good with people.
  • One of Us: In-Universe. She's a comic book fan, pocketing them on her scavenges.
  • One-Man Army: In Season 4, she wipes out a small herd of walkers solo with just her katana.
  • Only One Name: She's never referred to as anything by "Michonne".
  • Perpetual Frowner: During Season 3, she rarely has any expression on her face besides a distrusting or concerned frown. In Season 4, she is more open with her emotions and starts smiling a lot more.
  • Plucky Girl: Not so obvious because of her The Quiet One demeanor.
  • Pretend We're Dead: Two variants:
    • With her walker pack mules, their scent overcomes her own, which disguises herself partially to walkers.
    • She also takes advantage of a time when she's Covered in Gunge to walk freely among the dead.
  • Promotion to Parent: She takes over as a surrogate mother for Carl and Judith after Lori's passing.
  • Properly Paranoid: She quickly picked up on the Governor's lies and all the subtle things wrong with Woodbury and decided to leave as quickly as possible.
  • The Quiet One: She never says any more than she has to, and often prefers to use a Death Glare to communicate when people annoy her. Emphasize in "Hounded", where she has major role yet spends entire episode without any single word (not counting her grunts upon fighting walkers and Merle's group), at all. This changes in Season 4 as she becomes more acclimated to the group.
  • Shoot the Dog: Slicing the heads of her Human Pack Mule so she and Andrea won't be caught by The Governor and his men. Merle still found them, however.
  • Sixth Ranger: After first joining the group at the prison. After becoming integrated into the group she became The Big Guy, later The Lancer.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: The only times we see her in one is when she's wearing her Black Cloak in the Season 2 finale and while wearing her green jacket from the comicbooks in the last two episodes of Season 3.
  • Tempting Fate: An episode after she declared that she'll stop the hunt for The Governor, he returns.
  • Took A Level In Cheerfulness: She becomes more sociable and upbeat over time thanks to her friendship with Rick's group.
  • Tranquil Fury: In "Too Far Gone", when she and Hershel are taken hostage by The Governor.

    Bob 

Bob Stookey

"Nightmares end. They shouldn't end who you are."
Portrayed by: Lawrence Gilliard Jr.

"Two times, two different groups. I was the last one standing. Like I was supposed to see it happen over and over, like it's some kind of curse."

Bob Stookey is a former army medic who is recruited by Daryl and Glenn into the group during the Time Skip between Seasons 3 and 4.
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Aside from the alcoholism, he is also plagued by his Survivor Guilt.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Besides the Race Lift, his age is reduced for the show.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Possibly. His comic counterpart is a resident of Woodbury and is an ally of The Governor.
  • Adaptation Expansion/Ascended Extra: In the comics, Bob was a minor character in Woodbury who saved the Governor's life. In the show he has an altered backstory (Here, he has nothing to do with Woodbury) and is a main character.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Grey in the comics, black in the show.
  • The Alcoholic: He has a rather severe drinking problem. In "30 Days Without An Accident", he struggles to walk past some alcohol during a supply run and nearly takes some with him. In Indifference, he tells Daryl that the alcohol helps him cope with being the Sole Survivor of two other groups, particularly when the silence of being alone got to him.
    • It's to the point he nearly dies for the sake of saving a bottle of hooch and almost draws his gun when Daryl prepares to throw the bottle away.
  • An Arm and a Leg: A Type 3 occurs to him in "Strangers" when he is knocked out and captured by the Hunters. He awakens to find Gareth and the other cannibals had cut most of his left leg off to eat it.
  • Badass: Despite his issues, Bob is a trained soldier and acquits himself well against both walkers and hostile survivors.
    • Badass Angster: Despite being a trained soldier and all-around competent fighter, he spends a good amount of time against angsting over his Survivors Guilt and alcoholism and other assorted problems.
  • Combat Medic: He served in the army as a medic.
  • Composite Character: Since Dale dies early, Bob (or rather his legs) picks up his role as The Hunters' food and as the "tainted meat".
  • Death by Adaptation: His comic counterpart is still alive according to The Other Wiki.
  • A Death in the Limelight: Has a lot of screentime in his last two episodes.
  • Defiant to the End: Attempted this against the Hunters, but they didn't killed him after he mocked them by eating his "tainted meat".
  • Dissonant Serenity: After the fall of the prison, Bob is oddly cheerful and upbeat. Sasha tells him it's fine to be glad he is alive, but Bob tells her that isn't why he is smiling and doesn't elaborate. Later he reveals that he's smiling because he's broken his trend. Their group may have fallen apart, but he's not alone anymore.
    • When he's captured by the Hunters and is being Eaten Alive, he's rather bemused, which eventually does unnerve the Hunters. He smugly reveals that he had been bitten, and they'd been eating "tainted meat".
  • Face Death with Dignity: No hysterical struggling, he just calmly said goodbye to his surrogate family before he goes out with a smile.
  • Go Out with a Smile: After briefly passing into unconsciousness, he claims he dreamed of Sasha smiling at him, and thus, he dies smiling with her at his side.
  • Hates Being Alone: Bob's main motivation. He's spent more time than he counted alone after two groups fell apart, so he'll readily risk his life and overcome any obstacle to avoid being alone again.
  • Ignored Epiphany: He feels bad that his rampant alcoholism indirectly killed Zach, but does not try very hard to stop himself.
  • The Load: Only when he encounters alcohol. On his first scavenging mission for the group he brings disaster onto them by bringing a shelf down onto himself, becoming trapped and forcing the others to try and free him while fighting off walkers attracted by the commotion.
    • On his second, Bob, while on a mission to get medical supplies, fails to get any and instead takes a bottle of hooch.
  • Mercy Kill: The only person he had killed prior to joining the Prison community was a woman who asked to be killed.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Him knocking over the alcohol shelf in "30 Days Without An Accident" while successfully resisting the urge to take some results in dozens of walkers falling through the roof of the store, one of which ends up killing Zach.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: Averted: when the prison is attacked by the Governor again, Bob is shot through the right shoulder. He quickly has Maggie and Sasha check for an exit wound, and after they confirm there is one, he remarks that he can wait to treat it and resumes shooting. He treats it after the battle, but a few days later he is still bleeding from the wound and his right arm is noticeably weaker.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: Though he doesn't know for sure if it'll kill them, he delivers a great one to the Hunters as he reveals they've been eating "tainted meat".
    Bob: I've been bitten, you stupid pricks!
  • Race Lift: Was white in the comics, and now black for the show.
  • Remember the New Guy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining during the Time Skip.
  • Sacrificial Lion: He is the first casualty of Rick's group in Season 5.
  • Ship Tease: With Sasha.
  • Skewed Priorities: Due to his work as a medic, he feels the need to check a bullet wound while still fighting.
  • Survivor Guilt: A big issue for him. Before joining the prison group, Bob was reportedly part of two other groups, both of which he was the only survivor. He also expresses guilt over Zach's death, which he indirectly caused.
  • Took A Level In Cheerfulness: He started off as a very pessimistic and struggling alcoholic. He becomes more upbeat and optimistic over time.
  • Younger and Hipper: His comic counterpart is much older.
  • Zombie Infectee: He's bitten early in season five and dies of the bite in the next episode. His status as this, however, comes back to literally bite the Hunters in the ass when they eat his leg.

    Caleb 

Dr. Caleb Subramanian

Portrayed by: Sunkrish Bala

Dr. Caleb Subramanian is one of the new residents of the prison.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: After dying from the flu that is going around the prison he reanimates as a walker and is put down by Hershel.
  • Canon Foreigner: He never appeared in the comics.
  • Contamination Situation: While treating the illness that infects the prison, Caleb is infected but still does his best to help Hershel care for the other patients. He dies shortly before the group sent to get medicine to treat it returns.
  • First Name Basis: Hershel is the only one to call him Caleb, demonstrating their friendship.
  • Genre Savvy: After the initial outbreak of a virus in the prison resulted in several walkers wrecking havoc, Caleb ensured that the cell block where the sick people were being kept was well stocked with weapons. This foresight saved Hershel's life, since he was able to use the shotguns to kill several reanimated patients.
  • In-Series Nickname: Most of the characters call him Dr. S.
  • The Medic: He is the first actual doctor to join the group, and his medical knowledge comes in handy in figuring out that a disease killed Patrick and Charlie.
  • Mercy Kill: He stabs a unnamed prison resident in the head after they die to prevent him from reanimating.
  • Non-Action Guy: Justified. He is The Medic.
  • Remember the New Guy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining during the Time Skip.

    Zach 

Zach

Portrayed by: Kyle Gallner

Zach is a college student who joined the group during the time skip between Season 3 and 4. He is dating Beth Greene.

    Patrick 

Patrick

Portrayed by: Vincent Martella

Patrick is a new resident of the prison who becomes friends with Carl.

    David 

David

Portrayed by: Brandon Carroll

David is a new resident of the prison who takes place in "cleaning up" the Prison fence with Sasha and Karen.
  • Canon Foreigner: He never appeared in the comics.
  • Contamination Situation: David is isolated along with Karen in a cell after she mentions he too is showing symptoms of the sickness. She and David are then murdered and burned by Carol to stop the disease from spreading further.
  • Remember the New Guy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining after the abandonment of Woodbury and the Time Skip between seasons.

Samuels Family

    Lizzie 

Lizzie Samuels

"They're not dead, they're just...different."
Portrayed by: Brighton Sharbino

Lizzie is the eldest daughter of Ryan. Her already disturbed mindset is being further twisted by the Zombie Apocalypse.
  • Age Lift: In the comic, Ben and Billy are twins. The show explicitly stated that she is Mika's older sister.
  • Anti Heroine: Even for a Zombie Apocalypse, this girl has some twisted morals. But she is arguably trying to do what she thinks is best. And then she ends up Jumping Off the Slippery Slope.
  • Ax-Crazy: In "The Grove", she has degenerated to the point where she holds Carol and Tyreese at gunpoint to attempt to murder Judith unhindered.
  • Berserk Button: Killing her zombie playmates. She actually threatens to kill Carol.
  • Big Damn Heroes: She kills Alisha and another of the Governor's soldiers to save Tyreese.
  • Blondes Are Evil: Is showing signs throughout Season 4 that she is not a decent person. Confirmed in "The Grove".
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Her morals are a bit off, even for the Zombie Apocalypse. Killing people is fine, as they just come back as walkers. Shooting people in the head and killing walkers is murder though, as they don't keep walking around then.
  • Boom, Headshot: She did this to Alisha during the third prison attack. Later, she's on the receiving end of this courtesy of Carol, after she and Tyreese agree that Lizzie is too unstable to be around people and a potential threat to Judith.
  • Cain and Abel: She murders Mika to bring her back as a walker, to prove to Carol and Tyreese that there's nothing wrong with walkers. Somewhat subverted that there are no animosities between them.
  • Children Forced To Kill: Leads the rest of the children in taking up arms during the prison battle in "Too Far Gone", and personally kills two of the Governor's soldiers.
  • Creepy Child: She cares more about walkers than living people, and even her sister calls her "messed up". When Glenn coughs up a large amount of blood and mucus, Lizzie plays with the puddle with her toe. And she was the one who was feeding rats to walkers.
    • Enfant Terrible: Graduates to this in "Too Far Gone", when she guns down two attacking survivors without hesitation or conflicted emotions. Later in "Inmates", she considers smothering Judith when trying to keep her quiet. It blows up in "The Grove" in which she murders Mika and was about to murder Judith, too.
  • Cute and Psycho: Revealed to its full extent in "The Grove". Lizzie was the one who fed rats to the walkers, and believes walkers are just normal people and friendly. She ends up killing Mika so she will turn into a walker, and plans to kill everyone else in her group.
  • Decomposite Character: While Ben already appeared in the show, she is the one receiving his Character Development from the comics since he's an In Name Only character who bit it off way too soon.
    • Gender Flip: If the name's not obvious enough, Ben is male.
  • Dissonant Serenity: She acts far too calm around walkers, treating them like normal people.
  • Foil: She's most closely compared to Mika and by extension Sophia, having lost her innocence despite her similar upbringing and status. Carol tried to teach Lizzie to fend for herself, correcting her mistakes with Sophia, yet fails anyway as Lizzie is insane.
    • Lizzie also acts as a contrast to Carol in Season 4, as Carol acts strictly rational in comparison to Lizzie's irrationality. Carol accepts killing as a necessity, but does so only after deliberation and she hates it anyway. Lizzie meanwhile embraces death in all its forms without thought or real understanding.
    • She's also one to Hershel. Both at first believe Walkers are just normal people (Though Hershel thinks it's a disease) and lose loved ones to it. However Hershel wises up to his mistake and kills Walkers to protect his friends and family wheres Lizzie never does and even kills her sister to prove her point.
  • Kid Heroine: And an Anti Heroic one at that.
  • Lack of Empathy: For humans at least. See Zombie Advocate below.
  • Let Them Die Happy: Subverted. Carol attempts this when she puts down Lizzie, but Lizzie dies distressed and crying, believing that Carol is angry at her.
  • Little Miss Badass: She's not even a teenager, but she can pull off headshots from several yards away. She later admits to Carol that this was an accident, since it prevented Alisha from coming back.
  • Obliviously Evil: Lizzie does terrible things, but believes that she's doing the right thing and everyone else is wrong. Her reaction to killing Mika, which is exactly the same as Ben's reaction to killing Billy in the comic, is especially notable.
    Lizzie: Don't worry, she'll come back! I didn't hurt her brain.
  • Remember the New Guy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining during the Time Skip.
  • Replacement Goldfish: She and her sister appear to be becoming ones for Carol in place of Sophia.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: In comparison to her sister, Lizzie is less emotionally strong and is creepily attached to walkers.
  • The Sociopath: Her behavior in the later half of Season 4 develops into textbook symptoms of violent mental instability. She secretly kills rabbits at night (and not for food), and almost kills Judith with a sense of fascination on her face. In "The Grove", she kills Mika to turn her into a walker and would've done the same to Judith if Carol and Tyreese hadn't found her.
    • It is implied that she showed some signs of mental illness before the Zombie Apocalypse, since Mika has a system of making her look at flowers when Lizzie starts becoming severely agitated or crazy.
  • Tagalong Kid: Is obviously just a kid, and more often than not she's serving this role to Carol.
  • Team Killer: Killed her sister. She would have killed Judith too if Carol and Tyreese didn't arrived.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Is showing signs of this throughout Season 4. Confirmed in "The Grove".
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "Too Far Gone", when she finally puts Carol's weapons training to good use.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Names walkers and mourns their deaths more than humans, plays in gore with her boot, and guns down people.
    • And to top it off, she murdered her own sister.
  • ‹bermensch: She often squabbles with other characters because of her own set of morality.
  • The Unfettered: If she wants to prove a point, she will prove it no matter what.
  • Walking Spoiler: Due to her actions in the latter half of Season 4.
  • Would Hurt a Child: She nearly smothers Judith in an attempt to keep her quiet, and looks extremely fascinated while doing so. She later kills Mika, and was seconds away from killing Judith before Carol and Tyreese interrupted her.
  • Zombie Advocate: She argues that walkers are not dead, just different. She also argues that humans kill, too. In "Infected", she is more upset that her favorite walker on the fence was killed (calling him special) than about her dad dying. When Carol kills a walker that Lizzie was "playing" with, she accuses her of murdering it. She even seems to prefer them to humans, as she kills her sister and almost kills Judith to make them into Walkers to play with.

    Mika 

Mika Samuels

"We can't pretend anymore."
Portrayed by: Kyla Kennedy

Mika is the youngest daughter of Ryan.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Lizzie's Cain. Somewhat subverted that there are no animosities between them.
  • The Cassandra: Comes right out and says that her sister is not weak but messed up in their second episode, but neither Carol nor anyone else really gets it until her last appearance.
  • Children Are Innocent: She won't even shoot a deer and sympathizes with hostile survivors, noting that they probably weren't like they are now before the Zombie Apocalypse. She does shoot at walkers if she needs to, knowing (unlike her sister) that there is nothing human left in them.
  • The Fettered: Despite Carol's attempts to harden her, she refuses to kill people, even to save herself.
  • Foil: To her sister. Mika is younger, but more rational and knows that Walkers are dangerous but refuses to kill Humans because she thinks its murder, in contrast to Lizzie who thinks Walkers are just normal people and that killing Walkers is murder. That and Mika didn't go insane while Lizzie did.
  • Gender Flip: Her comic counterpart, Billy, is male. She suffers the same fate, being gutted by her sibling so she can come back as a walker.
  • Genre Savvy: A mild case, as she absorbs Carol's lessons, and is one of the few readily aware just how messed up her sister is.
    • Wrong Genre Savvy: She refuses to kill humans, though, and believes people are still good. Though we don't see it, this very well may have what allowed Lizzie to kill her.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: In stark contrast to her sister.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: She's one of the few characters in the show to actually be a totally good person and refuses to kill because of this.
  • Kill the Cutie: Lizzie murders her to make a point to Carol. Carol makes sure to stab her head to prevent reanimation.
  • Nice Girl: Very sweet and friendly to the group and gets along with Tyreese and Carol very well. She's probably one of the single nicest character put in the show.
  • Precocious Crush: Seemed to have developed one for Patrick, until he became a walker.
  • Remember the New Guy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining during the Time Skip.
  • Replacement Goldfish: She are her sister appear to be becoming ones for Carol in place of Sophia.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Despite being younger, Mika is much more rational and less creepy than her sister.
  • Tagalong Kid: Tags along with Carol quite often, and is even younger than Carl. She gets better though, see Took a Level in Badass below.
  • Technical Pacifist: Against walkers. Against humans, she is more or less an Actual Pacifist.
  • Thou Shall Not Kill: A variation. She has no issues killing Walkers, but she believes killing Humans is murder. She refuses to hurt people as a result.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Like Sophia. Summed up by Carol when she says Mika "doesn't have a mean bone in her body".
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "The Grove", in which she finally musters up the courage to shoot walkers dead. Nevertheless, she refuses to shoot people and can't bring herself to shoot a deer.

    Ryan 

Ryan Samuels

Portrayed by: Victor McCay

Ryan is a survivor who joined the prison community with his daughters Lizzie and Mika.
  • Decomposite Character: While Allen is already in the show, Ryan had perhaps Allen's most pivotal scene from the comics: he gets bitten and asks another member of the group to look after his two children when he dies.
  • Life or Limb Decision: Subverted: Carol prepares to amputate his left arm after he gets bitten, but then notices a bite on the back of his neck, which seals his fate.
  • Mercy Kill: After he dies, Carol stabs him in the head to prevent reanimation.
  • Red Shirt: He doesn't get much characterization before being bit and dying in "Infected".
  • Remember the New Guy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining during the Time Skip.
  • Zombie Infectee: He is bitten on his left arm and the back of his neck when walkers attack D-Block, and suffers for a while before dying.
