Due to the Anyone Can Die nature of the show and quickly moving plots, only spoilers from the current/most recent season will be spoiled out to prevent entire pages of whited out text. These spoiler tags will be removed upon the debut of the following season, and the character bios will be updated then as well. Additionally, character portraits will be updated each half-season with the release of an official, complete set from AMC. If you have not seen the first four seasons read at your own risk!

Victor Strand
"The only way to survive a mad world is to embrace the madness."
Portrayed by: Colman Domingo

"The game has changed. We return to the old rules. And the people who won the last round with their grande lattes and their frequent flyer miles are about to become the buffet."

A mysterious, intelligent man who Nick meets in the holding center.

  • Ambiguously Evil: A very shady and mysterious character.
  • Badass Gay: Smooth talker who has plans for surviving the outbreak is revealed to be in a relationship with a man.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: When he first met his boyfriend Abigail, it was initially fiery due to Strand stealing Abigail's wallet and spending a load of money on a secret project, but the two eventually became an item.
  • Break Them by Talking: Though Doug was plenty broken already, Strand gave him a damn good shove over the edge.
  • Bi the Way: It is known that he had a relationship with Thomas until his death, but while getting drunk with Madison in Season 2, Strand comments that if he met her in a different life, he would have flirted with her, and there's also his comment that he's a seducer of people.
  • The Captain/ The Leader: He makes sure that the others know he's running the show.
  • Child Hater: When the group tries rescuing a little boy, he immediately forces his group to get rid of him.
  • Control Freak: Strand absolutely demands leadership over his fellow survivors and will almost immediately shoot down any suggestions they propose that he doesn't agree with.
  • Crazy-Prepared: It just so happens that he owns a seaside mansion with its own independent power supply, as well as a luxury yacht docked just off the coast.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He can quickly talk his way out and he won't hesitate to make snarks while he's at it.
  • Dirty Coward: When Strand has no gun, he immediately surrenders control over his boat and abandons his companions at the mercy of a hostile group to save his own hide.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
    • Even though he's amoral at best, there are hints that Strand has deep feelings for at least one person. Subverted. This "person" is his prized boat Abigail.
    • Double Subverted. The Abigail turns out to be named after his lover, Thomas Abigail.
  • The Exile: Celia kicks him off her land.
  • Heartbroken Badass: The death of Thomas hits him really hard and even though he's just as pragmatic as ever, it's clear that Strand's in deep mourning over him.
  • Heel–Face Turn: By the end of Season 2, he becomes somewhat of a "friend" to Madison, and now that we know what is motives are, his actions are seen as more Brutal Honesty/Pragmatic Hero (and shade of Nominal Hero) than just straight-up jerkasssery or evil.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He buys Madison and her group time to escape the hotel while he stays to slow the guards down.
  • I Choose to Stay: Volunteers to stay back at the hotel instead of following Madison's group in their escape. Though it didn't take too long before he eventually struck out on his own.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • He coldly tells off his group for their lack of survival skills multiple times.
    • He has a hidden assault rifle up in the deck for emergencies. Daniel finds it and assumes he'll use it to turn on them, so he unloads it for safe measure. Once Jack and his group shows up, it looks as if he would be willing to hurt people in need again, as already demonstrated with Alex and Jake... until it turns out that this time, this group is actually a threat, and without a weapon, Strand is forced to flee.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's a ruthless pragmatist, but ultimately he is definitely not a villain.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • His treatment of Doug.
    • He openly tells his group that children are liabilities.
    • He coldly leaves Jake and Alex stranded in the ocean with no hope of them ever making it to safety.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: His refusal to Mercy Kill Sgt. Melvin Allen.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He abandoned Alex and Jake in the middle of the ocean on a raft to fend for themselves. Strand finds himself in the exact same position as he left them, only for him it's much worse.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: Thomas refers to him almost word for word as being this.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Shown to be very good at getting what he wants by manipulating and bribing others. He obtains the key to break himself and Nick out almost effortlessly.
  • Mean Boss: He makes it clear that he's in charge and usually acts cold towards everyone.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He gets a Shirtless Scene to show off his muscles while doing manual labor.
  • Not So Stoic: Giving up his cuff-links clearly pained him when Melvin Allen read the inscription. It turns out that they were a gift from his boyfriend, Thomas Abigail. And then he completely breaks down when he discovers that Thomas has been bitten by a walker, openly crying and not caring if anyone sees it.
  • Obfuscating Insanity: He was only pretending to act crazy because he claims it's the best way to survive in the new world.
  • Odd Friendship: The manipulative, suave business man bonds with broken, drug addict Nick.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Jack's group boards the ship, he rushes to grab his hidden assault rifle from the deck... and then it turns out it's unloaded, thanks to Daniel.
  • Only Sane Man: More often than not, Strand seems to be only person in the group who realizes that they're living in a zombie apocalypse where law and order no longer exists.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: He cries when his boyfriend dies after they reunite, and is helpless to stand up for himself when his boyfriend's mother insults him and accuses him of not having done enough to prevent this.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Saves Nick from being taken away by military soldiers at the cost of his precious cuff-links, despite the latter being a complete stranger
    • After Madison saved his life when she could've left him for dead, Strand agrees to rescue her family from Connor's group.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Despite starting out rocky, he and Madison come to see each other as friends or at least can trust each other by the end of Season 2 and into Season 3. This becomes clear at the end of Season 2 when she stands up for him & explicitly says that he is her friend when the mother of his boyfriend is kicking him while he's down when he's mourning his boyfriend's death, despite having spent the entire season up until that point being an Ambiguously Evil jerk.
  • Properly Paranoid: Recognizes that other human beings are the biggest danger and acts accordingly.
  • Put on a Bus: Stays behind at the hotel to buy Madison's group enough time to escape.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives a pretty brutal one to Doug Thompson in his introductory scene, taunting him for not being able to protect his family and then implying that his wife will soon find another man who will. This causes Doug to have another breakdown and be removed from the cell.
  • Scary Black Man: He's not quite evil, but he definitely gives off a creepy vibe.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: With no weapon to fend off Jack's group once they board the Abigail, he flees on a raft.
  • Sociopathic Hero: He's trying to convince the others to follow his leadership, but he'll also dismiss the lives of other people they encounter.
  • The Sixth Ranger: He's this to the main group, though he's nominally in charge since he's captain of the ship. The others, however, don't respect him as such.
  • Straight Gay: He's gay/bisexual and lacks stereotypical effeminate traits.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Becomes this for the group as of the Season 1 finale.
  • Tragic Keepsake: The cuff-links that Thomas gave him as a gift. They say: "Love Always, A" and are the only thing Strand has left of him.
  • Undying Loyalty: To his boyfriend, Thomas Abigail. He goes through absolute hell to get back to him and also honors his final wish of a Mercy Kill, even if it brings Celia's wrath down on him.
