A member of the original survivor group, Morales and his family left to look for family in Birmingham, Alabama after the group decided to go to the CDC.

A member of the original survivor group, Morales was one of the group's main supply runners and leaders. He met Rick when he first arrived in Atlanta, and despite Rick causing trouble for them, Morales accepted him when he orchestrated a plan to get them safely out of the city. After the fish fry attack, however, Morales decided that he and his family left would go to look for family in Birmingham, Alabama after Alabama, and left the group group.

However, the worst came to pass, as long before they ever made it to Birmingham, his wife and children all perished. Morales, distraught, pushed on until he finally
decided to go give up and let himself starve to death. He made it to the CDC.Saviors' territory on the East Coast, where the Saviors found and rescued him. Feeling loyal to the people who saved him, Morales joined the Saviors. When war erupted between the Saviors and their rebelling slave states, Morales was surprised that the "Rick from Alexandria" was in fact Rick Grimes. However, Morales felt no loyalty to Rick and prepared to deliver him to Negan for execution. Despite Rick's pleas to stand down, Morales refused, his heart set, and this cost him his life as Daryl snuck up on him and killed him. Though Daryl showed no regrets, both men were saddened that a former ally lost his soul to Negan.
