An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months, society has crumbled; there is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV.

There are only two types of people left in the world, walkers and survivors.

For now, Daryl is one of the latter.

Raised somewhere in the mountains of Georgia on a diet of cigarette smoke and disinterest, Daryl has been fending for himself since before he hit his teens. Mostly ignored by his absent mother and physically abused by his alcoholic father, Daryl’s only role-model and protection growing up was his older brother, Merle. Life-lessons included learning to hunt in the woods – a task that Daryl excels at – and how to fight with his fists – Daryl still hasn’t quite gotten the hang of that one.

For all the obstacles and disadvantages Daryl has had to contend with throughout his life, he has grown into a surprisingly compassionate and tenacious individual, often excelling the meagre expectations of those around him. Since the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, Daryl has been instrumental in the survival and protection of the group of survivors he has aligned himself with.

Three years on, following the deaths of some his only closest friends, Daryl is finally starting to piece together something that resembles a sense of self-worth. And he’s found a new (and improved) role-model in the form of Rick Grimes, the leader of their group and now, for all intents and purposes, the head of Daryl’s new family. The world may have gone to shit but, for Daryl at least, life’s starting to look less bleak than it has in a long time.
