[[folder: Tyreese]]
[[caption-width-right:300:"''The whole world is haunted now.''"]]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Chad L. 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. He enters a state of depression and rage after her death, but doesn't have long to dwell on it since the prison falls not long after. Rescuing Judith from the place, he becomes one of her primary caregivers.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Tyreese is much nicer, compassionate, and diplomatic compared to his comic counterpart. By Season 5, he starts becoming one of the strong candidates for being TheHeart of the group, something his comic counterpart [[HotBlooded never was]].
* 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". But 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.
* ADeathInTheLimelight: [[spoiler: Gets a hearty amount of focus in season five and "What's Happening And What's Going On", and he's dead by the end of said episode.]]
* ArchEnemy: Martin becomes his in Season 5. They only face off once (not counting [[spoiler: their DeadPersonConversation]] but Martin is the first character to directly confront Tyreese's morality and how it will get him killed.
* 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. In the second half of Season 4 until the Season 5 premiere, he's in a BadassAndChildDuo with Lizzie, Mika and most notably Judith.
* TheBerserker: When he's truly angry he is a terrifying force to be reckoned with; Allen was nearly fed to a pit full of walkers, an entire herd of walkers was decimated when he was cornered by them, and he ''nearly'' beat Martin to death. You'd better hope you're not in range of his fists or his hammer if he's angry.
* 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, Karen's death sends him into a massive fit. Then in the Season 5 premiere "No Sanctuary", he pummels, beats, and ''almost'' kills the douchebag who threatened to snap baby Judith's neck. The next episode revealed that the guy survived, but his face is obviously swelling bad.
* TheBigGuy: He is literally the biggest, the tallest and physically the strongest member of Rick's group.
* BrotherSisterTeam: With Sasha.
* CharacterDeath: [[spoiler: In "What's Happening And What's Going On", he's bitten twice by walkers and dies of his wounds by the end of the episode.]]
* DeadPersonConversation: [[spoiler: While dying, he talks to the ghosts of Lizzie, Mika, Martin, Bob, The Governor and Beth.]]
* 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).
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler: He is shown to be very capable at handling walkers but ends up getting mortally wounded when one bites him while he's not paying attention. It's not a complete example though, as he his slow death throughout the rest of the episode is very emotional and cinematic.]]
* DropTheHammer: When first shown, he's using a small sledgehammer as a weapon.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Inverted. He debuted much later than in the source material.
* EnemyWithout: WordOfGod is that Tyreese fears his own strength and the berserker he becomes when he's enraged.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: Once he realizes that he's about to die, he faces the end peacefully and with no fear. It helps that several of his deceased friends appear to him as hallucinations and comfort him.]]
* ForgivenButNotForgotten: 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: He's the only one who shows nothing but gratitude to the prison group for saving and harboring them. He is also very disturbed by having to kill walkers, particularly when stabbing them through the prison fence. Tyreese is also often seen carrying and tending to baby Judith, a position that he seems entirely competent and comfortable with.
* TheHeart: Of the group following Hershel's death.
* HeroicBlueScreenOfDeath: He goes through this when he finds 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.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: He's got horrible aim with a firearm, which nearly gets him killed during the fall of the prison, before being saved by Lizzie and Mika. This is the reason he generally sticks to his trusty hammer.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Outright calls baby Judith his friend.
* 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?
** In the Season 5 premiere, a man threatens to kill Judith. He responds in due course, by beating the SOB to death. [[NotQuiteDead Except he didn't]].
* 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.
* LifeOrLimbDecision: [[spoiler: When his arm was chomped twice by walkers, Rick and Michonne cut it off, but it's already too late for the big guy and it fails to save his life.]]
* LightningBruiser: He's very agile for a guy his size.
* LoveInterest: For Karen, with the two of them becoming a couple in the TimeSkip between Season 3 and 4.
* MartialPacifist: Tyreese can definitely kick ass, but he always chooses to be diplomatic.
* NiceGuy: Very much so. He has snapped and gotten aggressive on three occasions, but they were rather understandable (Allen's provocation, the aftermath of Karen's murder, and Martin threatening to kill baby Judith). In the latter case it turns out that he couldn't even bring himself to kill the bastard like he said he did as he turns up alive in the next episode.
* TheOneGuy: After 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: After Karen is murdered.
* NiceHat: His beanie that he's rarely seen without. [[spoiler: It's left on the cross marking his grave.]]
* PapaWolf: To the children in general, but it's most evident in the second half of Season 4.
** Judith may not be his child, but when she was threatened in the Season 5 premiere, he viciously killed the [[AssholeVictim guy who threatened her]]. Upon her return, Carol is fully expecting to have to finish Martin off herself, but Tyreese stops her and admits that he was capable of killing since the man was threatening Judith's life. Although it ends up being subverted when the guy turns up alive in the next episode, showing that Tyreese either spared him or didn't kill him as he thought he did.
* PlotArmor: Clumsily running in the open field, with his wardrobe-size frame, while in close range of shooters during the third Prison Attack. [[spoiler: Sadly, the plot armor doesn't protect him in Season 5 when he doesn't notice a walker behind him in time.]]
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: While he was promoted to series regular as of Season 4, his name only appeared in the OBB of Season 5. [[spoiler: Much like Hershel, Beth, and Gareth before him, it doesn't do him much good, and he dies in the middle of the season.]]
* PromotionToParent: In the beginning of the second half of Season 4 for Lizzie, Mika, and Judith. He continues in this role until Judith is reunited with Rick in the Season 5 premiere, but still promises to help as much as possible with her afterwards.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: [[spoiler: The reason for his sudden death is probably because Chad Coleman got a major role in [[Literature/TheExpanse another TV series]].]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to his sister's red.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler: His death in the middle of season five comes just at the same time the group is losing hope.]]
* ScaryBlackMan: Subverted. Tyreese is nice, reasonable, compassionate, and shows nothing but gratitude to the prison group for harboring his group. The only incidences when he becomes violently angry is when he finds out that Karen has been killed and her body has burned, and when a man from Terminus threatens to kill Judith. The latter one resulted in Tyreese [[PapaWolf beating the asshole to death]] (or so it appeared).
* 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. 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. [[spoiler: While he dies (at the middle of Season 5), it occured much later in the timeline compared to his comic death.]]
* SurprisinglySuddenDeath: [[spoiler: Nobody saw it coming, largely because Beth had just died the episode beforehand.]]
* 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.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Sasha in Season 3. Averted from Season 4 onward once they both start receiving more screen time.
* ThouShallNotKill: A major belief of his. It's seemingly averted in the Season 5 premiere when he kills Martin, but the next episode subverts it by revealing that Martin survived. [[spoiler: Ultimately, he dies without having ever killed a living person.]]
* 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.
** During the fifth season - particularly during the Grady Memorial RescueArc - Tyreese is the one advocating the most peaceful course of actions. While the group are not villains, they've certainly grown more brutal in combat and are far more comfortable with it than he is.
* TokenMinority: In the latter half of Season 4. Aside from being TheOneGuy above, he is the only black person of said group.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: [[spoiler: The tragedy of Tyreese's demise is that he was one of the most goodhearted characters on the show, who did his best to be a moral compass for the group in the wake of Hershel's death.]]
* ZombieInfectee: [[spoiler: He's bitten by a walker and lays dying for an extended amount of time, and when he's attacked by another one, he allows it to chomp on the same arm until he grabs a weapon to kill it with. He dies at the end of the episode.]]

[[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. She also begins to form a relationship with Bob after the fall of the prison.
* 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. By the fifth season, she is the group's go-to sniper and is probably the most combat-proficient female after Michonne.
* AdaptationalBadass: If you consider Julie as her comic book counterpart.
* AdaptationNameChange: If she is indeed Julie's TV counterpart.
* AgeLift: If you consider Julie her comic counterpart, then she's over a decade older than her.
* BackToBackBadasses: With Maggie in "Alone" when they were surrounded by walkers near an ice cream truck.
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler: She doesn't take Bob's death well in Season 5, nor the death of her brother.]] By the time the group reaches Alexandria, she's paranoid, possibly experiencing auditory hallucinations, and may well be a DeathSeeker.
* BrotherSisterTeam: With Tyreese [[spoiler: until his death.]]
* 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. Naturally, it turns out to be even worse.
* ColdSniper: Sasha's the best shot of the whole group and comes across as this to anyone she doesn't trust, especially after [[spoiler: Tyreese's death]] and their admission to Alexandria. She's more of a FriendlySniper with some the group, though.
* CompositeCharacter: While it isn't clear if Julie is her comic counterpart, all her role starting Season 5 originally belongs to Andrea in the comics, particularly the [[spoiler: death of a significant other]] during the Fear the Hunters as well as becoming the group's resident sniper. Also, since Michonne is getting AdaptationalHeroism Sasha gets her comic counterpart's storyline of being paranoid and out of place when the group gets to Alexandria.
* TheCynic: Her experience at Woodbury and the 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. Her reaction to Alexandria is similar, but compounded even more so by the recent deaths of [[spoiler: Bob, Beth, and Tyreese.]]
* DeathSeeker: May very well be one; in "Forget", when she hallucinates hearing walkers nearby she simply sits down and says "Come and get me."
* {{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.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Possibly inverted if she is indeed Julie's counterpart since she debuted much later than in the source material.
* ExtremeMeleeRevenge: [[spoiler: She did ''not'' hold back when she stabbed Martin to death.]]
* 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 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.
* SaltAndPepper: She's regularly seen with Maggie starting the second half of Season 4.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler: Bob's death starts sending her down this path, but Tyreese's death is really when it happens; she becomes reckless and paranoid, finding it impossible to fit in at Alexandria.]]
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Starts wearing one in Season 4.
* ShellShockedVeteran: By the time the group reaches Alexandria, Sasha is a reckless, paranoid wreck who is having auditory hallucinations of walkers and a severe panic attack at Deanna's welcome party.
* ShipTease: With Bob. They had a RelationshipUpgrade in Season 5.
* ShovelStrike: Originally appeared with a shovel as her weapon.
* SixthRanger: Subverted at first, but played straight at the end of Season 3.
* SoleSurvivor: [[spoiler: Of her family after Tyreese's death, and she is currently the only surviving character on this page.]]
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Possibly. If she is indeed Julie's counterpart, then she's supposed to have died around the timeline of late Season 3 to Season 4.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Tyreese in Season 3. Averted from Season 4 onward when they develop into more distinct characters.
* TragicKeepsake: [[spoiler: Starts wearing the late Bob Stookey's jacket after his death]].
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Holy hell; when she, Rick, Michonne, and Abraham [[spoiler: lured the Terminus survivors to the church after they chopped Bob's leg off for a meal and dropped him at their doorstep, she turned Martin into a human pincushion. Tyreese is reasonably horrified by this.]]

[[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.
* AdaptationalCurves: His comicbook counterpart is fatter.
* AdaptationalVillainy: The guy is a douchebag compared to his comic counterpart.
* AssholeVictim: It's hard to feel sorry for him considering how much of a dick he was.
%%* 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: He's an InNameOnly character and his important characterizations from the comics were given to two not-so CanonForeigner characters; Morales was given the role of the Atlanta group's original family man member, while Ryan Samuels was given his role of a dying father who left his two children for the group.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Inverted. He debuted much later than in the source material.
* 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.
* InNameOnly: Pretty much the only similarity he has with his comic book counterpart is his name.
* {{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.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Inverted. He debuted much later than in the source material. Same goes for his [[DecompositeCharacter direct counterpart]], [[GenderFlip Lizzie.]]
* InNameOnly: The only thing he has in common with his comic book counterpart is his name. The character of Lizzie from Season 4 is the comic book character's ''true'' counterpart.
* 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.

[[folder: Donna]]
->'''Portrayed by''': Cherie Dvorak

Donna is Allen's wife. She is bitten just before their group finds the prison, succumbing to the bite after the group makes it inside.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Her comicbook counterpart is an [[YoungerThanTheyLook old-looking]] woman with short blond hair.
* 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.
* DeathByAdaptation: An odd version. She's around much shorter than her comic incarnation, but dies much later in the timeline.
* DemotedToExtra: In the comics, Donna was around for the first arc and a half before being killed.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Inverted. She debuted much later than in the source material.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Her clothes are pink.
* RedShirt: Given none of the characterization her comic book counterpart received.
* ZombieInfectee: Gets bitten in the woods outside of the prison and dies of the bite shortly after Carl finds the group.
