The Companion Crew


"I'm doing what's best for my crew. That includes you."

Voiced by: Malik Yoba

The Captain of The Companion who rescues Michonne at the beginning of episode 1 and offers her shelter on his boat.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's a genuinely nice guy who tries to bring out the best in people. He also won't hesitate to shoot you in the head if you threaten or kill one of his crewmembers.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He shows up to save Michonne from committing suicidenote  at the very beginning of the first episode.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Played with; he starts moving towards this during What We Deserve but gets over it, possibly with Michonne's encouragement depending on player choices.
  • Distressed Dude: You have the option of leaving him at Munroe to negotiate with Norma's goons. However, this may result in his capture.
  • The Heart: He is the kindest of the group and the one who most often argues for non-violence and helping others.
  • Nice Guy: He's a genuinely compassionate man who just wants to help people.
  • Saved by Canon: No matter what choices are made, he will survive Episode 3.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: If Michonne keeps picking violent or dangerous choices he'll call her out on it, saying that she should learn to use less force in achieving her goals.


"Alright, so we're just gonna sit around waiting for you?."

Voiced by: T.J. Ramini

A minor character who debuted in the comics but players a slightly larger role here as a member of Pete's crew.

  • Advertised Extra: He was one of the major comic characters announced to be in the game, making fans assume that this story arc would flesh out his character more. Sadly, he plays the most minimal part in the game.
  • Ascended Extra: He is first shown briefly working in Alexandria in the comics but is one of Michonne's shipmates in this series.
  • Distressed Dude: Is held captive by Norma's group in episode 3.
  • Out of Focus: He's one of the many characters that doesn't get much attention.
  • Saved by Canon: No matter what choices are made, he will survive Episode 3.



Another member of Pete's crew.



A pessimistic man who ran into Pete roughly a year before the events of the story.

  • A Death in the Limelight: The beginning of Episode 3 offers some backstory for his character and gives him the most screentime out of all of Pete's crew. His possible death in the same episode feels more climactic than Berto's plot-mandated one.
  • Character Death: If Michonne takes too long giving Randall over to Norma, Oak will be killed by a frustrated Norma.
  • Distressed Dude: Is held captive by Norma's group in episode 3.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's a bit rough around the edges and admits that he was slow to warm up to Pete's crew, but a flashback in episode 3 shows that he has a nicer side to him when he offers Michonne a drink and tells her about his past.
  • Not Too Dead to Save the Day: If Norma shoots him, he'll manage to kick Norma one last time so Michonne, Siddiq, and Pete can get away.
  • Pet the Dog: He has a genuine heartfelt moment with Michonne in episode 3, by relating to her and offering to play cards with her.
  • Sole Survivor: In his backstory, he and nine others went into a warehouse to rescue a girl who had been kidnapped by another group. He was the only survivor. This experience is the main reason he believes the boat crew should keep as far away from other people as possible.
  • The Mean Brit: He argues against rescuing survivors and believes that Pete is too idealistic for his own good.


Mobjack Survivors

     Samantha Fairbanks 

Samantha Fairbanks
"We fight if we have to, them or us."

Voiced by: Devery Jacobs

Better known as Sam, is young woman who is accused of stealing from the community of Monroe alongside her brother. Despite quickly being shown as a liar she insists that Norma and Randal are the real threats.

  • Ambiguously Evil: Sam isn't exactly the most trusting of survivors. She often suggests Michonne to use violence for any conflicts they may face and is quick to suggest murder as the best solution.
    • Good All Along: By the end, however, it's clear she has good intentions and is simply misguided in the apocalypse.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Once they meet up, she and Paige acts as the Official Couple, except they are never identified as such.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: She's a well-meaning pretty girl, but a lot kinder compared to Norma.
  • Big Sister Instinct: She takes good care of her younger brothers as best as she can.
  • Childhood Friends: Has been friends with Paige ever since they were little.
  • Consummate Liar: Norma considers her this. Regardless of whether it is true or not, she did continuously steal from Monroe, and initially lies about it to Michonne.
  • The Cynic: She's not the most optimistic character in the story.
  • Defeat Means Respect: Her backstory with Paige reveals that the two became friends after Paige stood up to her.
  • Determinator: According to Paige, Sam has shades of this, which helped keep her family together.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: She's a pale girl with a questionable past.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: She and Michonne can become this by episode 3.
  • Good Is Dumb: She's not exactly the most rational of survivors. For starters, she got captured trying to rob the exact same woman twice.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Starts out as an enemy towards Michonne when they first met, but by episode 2 she'll become her best friend.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: If Michonne opts to stay in the burning house with the hallucinations of her daughters, Sam will force her out of the house at the cost of her own life.
  • Heroic Wannabe: She tries to be a heroic survivor, but is clearly having a lot of trouble doing so.
  • Hidden Buxom: It's a tad bit hard to spot through her baggy clothing and with her being so mobile, but a few camera angles reveal Sam to be quite busty for her shape and size.
  • Idiot Ball: She's tried to steal from Norma twice, which only sealed her position as an enemy towards the villainess.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Looks a bit like her voice actor, Devery Jacobs.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's very harsh, but she opens up to Michonne while they work together.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: She tries to be the hero of her family, but she is very cynical and often suggest violent methods.
  • Lady in Red: Well, she is always seen wearing a red shirt.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: She's a bit too eager to jump at violence as the best solution.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: The whole story arc is kickstarted by Sam's attempts to rob from Norma twice. Unfortunately, Michonne and Pete's crew are dragged along thanks to her as well. Additionally, her decision to rob from Norma again causes Greg to be executed. Later, her escape with Michonne eventually causes the total destruction of the whole city of Monroe as well, leading up to an intense war between the two groups.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: Averted. She is shot in the shoulder, and it is treated as an extremely threatening wound. She pulls through, but almost bleeds to death and requires surgery to get the bullet removed.
  • Promotion to Parent: Suddenly finds herself as the adult figure to her brothers after John's death.
  • Redemption Equals Death/Redemption Earns Life: Sam will either die pulling a Heroic Sacrifice saving Michonne's life or genuinely apologize to Michonne if she is saved.
  • Reformed Bully: According to Paige, she used to pick on her all the time when they were in school together. However, when Paige stood up to her, Sam was impressed and became friends with her.
  • The Scrounger: She scavenges supplies for her family.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: She was captured by Norma once for trying to steal supplies from her, but the villainess allowed her to leave as a sign of mercy. Unfortunately, Sam tries to steal from her again, instigating a feud between them.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: She slowly becomes nicer and nicer each episode, to the point where she admits that Michonne has become a true friend to her by the finale.
  • When She Smiles: If still alive, she will sport a genuine smile of happiness with Michonne at the end of episode 3.

     Greg Fairbanks 

Greg Fairbanks

Voiced by: Booboo Stewart

"I knew about the rotters. I mean, I've fought them before. Killed them. It's bad. But... people are worse, aren't they? I didn't know it was this bad. They know what they're doing... they just don't care."

Samantha's brother and partner in crime. He is killed at the end of In Too Deep via an accidental shot to the gut and dies shortly after. His zombie is then put down by Michonne.

  • And Then John Was a Zombie: He is shot right at the end of the first episode and comes back almost immediately, making him the fastest to turn in the entire game series.
  • Bad Liar: Both Norma and Randal see through his lies almost instantly when questioning him with Michonne.
  • Bring My Brown Pants: He pisses his pants in fear when Randal holds a gun to his head.
  • Eye Scream: If Michonne decides to kill him with the screwdriver she'll do so by puncturing his eye.
  • Facial Horror: If Michonne decides to kill him with the pipe he'll end up looking like Carver did after Kenny smashed in his face with a crowbar, which might be the result of reusing the model.
  • Taking the Bullet: When Zachery accidentally fires his gun Greg takes the bullet right before it could hit Sam.
  • Vague Age: It's not made clear as to whether or not if he's a teenager or a young adult.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Killed at the end of episode 1.


Monroe Settlement


"You survive if you're dangerous. I can respect that."

Voiced by: Cissy Jones

The leader of the Monroe boat settlement. She accuses Samantha and Greg of repeatedly stealing from her community and thinks that Michonne and Pete are their accomplices.

  • Affably Evil: She is fairly polite to Michonne and even offers her a drink while questioning her. In the third episode, she initially shows up alone to trade Pete's crew for her brother without any hassle. When Gabby and/or Jonas starts to lose it, she tries to have them settle down, stating that Revenge is not what they're there for.
  • Anti-Villain: Can be considered this by the third episode. Despite kidnapping Pete's crew she's initially just concerned with getting Randall back and is willing to leave the Fairbanks house residents alone.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Has her hand sliced off during a struggle with Michonne in the finale.
  • Berserk Button: She gets really mad if she thinks someone is lying to her. Additionally, hurting Randal is a very good way provoke her wrath. Randall's death causes her to attack the Fairbanks house in a rage during What We Deserve.
  • Big Bad: She plays into this role for the miniseries.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Even for Norma, leaving her alive to be graphically disemboweled is pretty brutal.
  • The Dreaded: She is feared by anyone she considers a threat or an enemy, and considering what happened at Mobjack for good reason.
  • Eaten Alive/Devoured by the Horde: Near the end of episode three, Norma gets surrounded by walkers after having her hand cut off and shoulder bitten. The player can choose to shoot her and save her the pain or let her suffer.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She cares for Randall and gets very angry if Michonne admits to hurting him.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Norma frequently reigns in Randall's violent, sadistic behavior.
  • Evil Counterpart: She's pretty much a darker incarnation of Sam.
  • Fat Bastard: She is a little on the hefty side, and is very cunning and brutal.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: She doesn't exactly has much character development and simply acts as the main villain for Michonne's story arc. This is subdued in the third episode though, when she is truly worried for her settlement and is only wanting to have her brother back without a fight. Which of course, happens either after Randall is killed, or she kills Oak.
  • Man Bites Man: During a fight, Michonne bites her hand, tearing off a chunk of her flesh.
  • Mercy Kill: Can be on the receiving end of one by Michonne if the player chooses.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction if Michonne refuses to give her a Mercy Kill.
  • Revenge: Averted, initially. When Norma meets Michonne's group at the midpoint of the finale, she isn't keen on escalating to a fight and is simply there to get her brother back. When Randall is either killed or turns out to be a zombie, that's when Norma sics her group on the Fairbanks family.



Voiced by: Derek Phillips

"We all have our demons, honey. Some are on the inside. Some are sitting right in front of us. Wondering what kind of mother brings a child in this mess of a world. Ain't no blue skies for them anymore."

Norma's brother and chief enforcer. He is quickly shown to be very violent and ruthless in dealing with problems.

  • Abusive Parents: In one optional dialogue, he talks about how his father was "a mean son of a bitch" and would lash at him with a belt.
  • Asshole Victim: If the player chooses to kill him at the end of episode two or if Sam blows his brains out in the climax of episode 3.
  • Ax-Crazy: Goes from being a sadistic Jerkass (see below) to flat out psychotic in episode two.
  • Beard of Evil: Sports one, and is a brutal Sadist.
  • Boom, Headshot!: His fate if he survives episode two by either Michonne or Sam.
  • Break the Haughty: In episode 3, he has a sad face when killed by Sam or Michonne.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Depending on the player's choice, Michonne can keep crushing his fingers in the vice, or beat on him.
  • Distressed Dude: Gets taken hostage in episode 2.
  • The Dragon: To Norma.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He and Norma have a loving brother-sister relationship. Randall screams out in anger when Michonne and Sam attack Norma in Episode 2, and while Norma doesn't appreciate Randall's temper tantrums it's shown that she loves him no matter what and will stop at nothing to get him back after he's captured. Pretty much his only redeeming quality.
  • Expy: He's nearly identical to Carver from Season 2.
  • Facial Horror: If the player chooses to kill him at the end of episode two, she gives him a solid whack to the head with a wrench. One of his eyes is either destroyed or knocked out of the socket, and part of his skull and brain is exposed.
  • Fingore: After getting captured in episode two, Michonne puts his fingers in a vice to restrain him. Depending on the player's choices she can then completely crush them as a form of torture.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Episode 3 reveals that nobody except for Norma gives a crap about the fate of Randall and aren't particularly torn up about his capture or death.
  • Hate Sink: Gives Troy a run for his money in this department.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: After being captured and if the player gives the choice of letting him speak with Norma, he plays along at first before starting to give away their location if Michonne doesn't take the walkie-talkie back.
  • Jerkass: Even without his antagonistic qualities he's a major asshole. His personality can best be described as taking the worst traits from Carver and Troy and fusing them into one being. Whenever he isn't dishing out violence he tries his damndest to get under peoples skin with insults and snide comments.
  • Karmic Death: He's either killed by Michonne or Sam; the two girls he's attacked the most.
  • Kick the Dog: When Michonne and Paige hold him hostage in episode two, he sure does relish in telling the kids how he blew off a good portion of John's skull.
  • Lean and Mean: In contrast to his Fat Bitch sister.
  • Never My Fault: Berates Zachery for shooting Greg even though he was doing everything in his power to goad him on and is the main reason it happened.
  • Revenge Before Reason: He relentlessly stalks Michonne to gain revenge despite not telling his sister on his whereabouts and leaving his own safe zone while it's on fire and in need of assistance. Taken Up to Eleven in What We Deserve when he may charge at Michonne in the middle of a gunfight with walkers.
  • Sadist: Openly fantasizes about crushing the skulls of the other characters including two kids, including describing the way childrens' bodies react to getting hit in gory detail.
  • Sanity Slippage: Becomes increasingly unhinged in the final part of episode two. Lightens up slightly by the time of episode three, but is still a major Jerkass
  • Scarily Competent Tracker: He trailed Michonne all the way to Sam's house.
  • The Social Darwinist: Believes that it's human nature to either adapt to the horrors it faces, or die pathetically.
  • Straw Nihilist: Some of his quotes in the second episode shows that he has a very pessimistic view of the post-walker world.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Depending on player choices he charges at Michonne in the middle of a gunfight with walkers leading to his death.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: If Randall is still alive by the time of episode three, he'll be your bargaining chip with Norma. If the trade goes successfully, Randall will suddenly lunge and strangle Michonne after being freed, only to be shot in the head and having Norma send her troops out.
  • Villain Has a Point/What the Hell, Hero?: In episode three, Randall is quick to point out that Michonne and Sam doomed the Monroe settlement by burning down the place and leaving innocent people and families there to be easy pickings for walkers.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Depending on the choices the player makes he can hit Michonne, Sam and Paige.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He has no problem hitting Sam and Greg and doesn't show any remorse when his actions lead to Greg getting gunned down by Zachary. Then of course, there is him threatening Sam's family.
    • He describes in rather gruesome detail how it feels to crush a child's skull, indicating that he has killed kids before.
  • Would You Like to Hear How They Died?: He cruelly taunts Sam and her family about the death of her father.
  • Wrench Whack: After being captured, Randall notices a wrench lying nearby and threatens Michonne and the Fairbanks with it. This is also how Michonne kills him in episode two depending on the player's actions. But it doesn't do enough damage to his brain, and he reanimates. Michonne and company use this to try to trade the undead Randall for Pete's crew, but unsurprisingly it doesn't end that cleanly.



The boyfriend of Jonas, the settlements doctor. If spared in episode 1 he will save Michonne from Norma in episode 3.

  • Accidental Murder: His shooting of Greg, at least this is what he claims happened. Michonne can disagree.
  • The Atoner: If spared, he agrees to help Michonne and Sam escape from Monroe.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: If Michonne spared him in Episode 1, he will help Michonne by distracting Norma, only to receive a bullet in his head.
  • Boom, Headshot!: If Michonne gives Sam the go ahead she'll gun him down on the spot for killing her brother.
  • Character Death: If you let Sam shoot him dead. Later dies by Norma's hand regardless if you saved him.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He's strongly against his groups wrongdoings.
  • The Load: One of the reasons Randall hates him is because Zachary doesn't do much for his group but gets to stay because he's Jonas' boyfriend.
  • Murder by Mistake: He accidentally shoots Greg near the end of the episode, potentially leading to his death.
  • Nice Guy: He strongly dislikes Norma and Randal's tyrannic control, remorseful of murdering Greg by mistake and if you spared his life, He and Jonas will help Michonne and Sam escape in episode 2.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: After helping Michonne, Sam and Pete escape, during the finale he tries to protect Michonne from Norma only to be unceremoniously shot in the head by the latter (regardless of player action).
  • Pet the Dog: He helps Michonne and Sam escape if spared.
  • Redemption Equals Death: If he's spared in Episode 1, he tries to save Michonne from Norma in Episode 3 by striking her with a branch and gets shot in the head for his trouble.
  • Straight Gay: As soon as he arrives back to the Monroe Boat Settlement, he rushes up to Jonas to give him a hug and then a kiss.
  • The Twink: He's easily the smallest and thinnest of Monroe, and he's gay.
  • Token Good Teammate: He seems to be the most reasonable of Norma's group, and is willing to help Michonne and company escape.



The doctor of Monroe who is dating Zachary. A large amount of his characterization depends on whether or not Michonne allowed his boyfriend to die in episode 1.

  • For Want of a Nail: If Zachary does not survive episode one, Jonas will be the one to murder Siddiq in Revenge.
  • The Medic: Mentioned as being the doctor of the Monroe community.
  • Out of Focus: He doesn't exactly play much to plot.
  • Pet the Dog: If you spare his boyfriend's life, then he'll help Michonne and Sam escape Monroe.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He helps Norma's group, but he's not doing it for fun.
  • Straight Gay: He's Zachary's boyfriend.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?/ Uncertain Doom: The last time we see him in episode three is calling out Zachary's name after Norma kills him. Otherwise, Jonas is either killed by Michonne's group or vanishes from the plot entirely.



A young Hispanic woman who accompanies Randal and later Norma when they are out hunting for Michonne's group. Despite getting very little screen time she plays a major role in episode 3.

  • Asshole Victim: Considering that she dies after executing Berto, it's safe to say that nobody cares.
  • Boom, Headshot!: How she executes Berto and is then killed herself.
  • The Brute: She's one of the primary enforcers in Norma's group.
  • Dark Action Girl: She seems to be a very capable soldier for Monroe and is seen accompanying Randal in episode 1 and Norma in episode 3.
  • Faux Action Girl: She doesn't even do anything remotely badass in the entire story before being taken out almost effortlessly.
  • Jerkass: She has nothing but feelings of anger and hate.
  • Karmic Death: She executes Berto with a headshot, only to find herself suffering the exact same fate thanks to Pete.
  • Revenge Before Reason: She's the one who ultimately triggers the final battle between Norma and Michonne's group due to her desire for revenge.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: You'd barely notice when she appears in a scene, but during the confrontation between Michonne's group and her own she ends up executing Berto as payback for having her home destroyed.
  • The Sociopath: She doesn't seem to mind that several innocent people living at Sam's house are in her murderous path.
  • Spicy Latina: She's Hispanic and a total Jerkass.

Isolated House

     John Fairbanks 

John Fairbanks

Voiced by: Jonathan Joss

"These kids deserve a real childhood, someplace where fear isn't the norm. If I can give them even a sliver of that, I'll die happy."

Sam's father. After losing his wife he's struggled to hold what is left of his family together, which is made much harder with Greg's recent death. He is killed very suddenly by Randal while talking to Michonne near the front gate of his house.

  • Boom, Headshot!: Shot out of nowhere in the head by Randal while talking to Michonne.
  • Facial Horror: Wooo boy, we get a good view of part of his head being blown off.
  • Informed Ability: His children say that John have been protecting the family since the beginning. We never get to see any of this before he was shot.
  • Papa Wolf: Extremely protective of his kids.
  • Parental Substitute: To Paige.
  • Surprisingly Sudden Death: Gets his face blown off in the middle of a conversation with Michonne.
  • Too Dumb to Live: While throwing a walker hand away from the garden through an open gate, he chooses not to keep it shut afterwards and instead turns to speak to Michonne. This gets him killed by a pursuing Randal, who snipes him from behind.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Gets blown away by Randal after only his first scene.

     Sophia Fairbanks 


John's wife and Sam's mother who died roughly a year before the events of the game.

  • Driven to Suicide: She killed herself and was buried before the children could find out what actually happened.
  • Ill Girl: According to Paige, she had a serious heart condition. One of the photos inside the house shows her wearing an oxygen tube. Her condition is why she decided to commit suicide: she knew that without the treatment she needed, she would likely die a slow and painful death, and she wanted to spare herself and her family from the suffering it would cause.
  • Posthumous Character: John talks about her while visiting her tombstone.

    James and Alex Fairbanks 

The sons of John and younger brothers of Samantha and Greg. They both seem to still be fairly innocent and respond with horror to the deaths of their older brother and father.

  • Children Are Innocent: They're pretty much only innocent young kids enduring the harshness of the apocalypse.
  • Improbable Infant Survival: Surprisingly enough, this trope is played straight and both brothers manage to survive the events of episode 3 and are implied to join a new settlement with their remaining family at the end.
  • Nice Guy: They are pretty respectful little tykes.



Voiced by: Brina Palencia

A young woman who spent most of her childhood with John's family as her own family didn't want her. Despite getting off to a rough start she is quick to try and befriend Michonne once it becomes clear she isn't a threat.
