A.J. Ford (first name unknown) is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is the son of Abraham and Ellen Ford and the brother of Becca.


Houston, Texas

Nothing is known about A.J.'s life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he lived with his father, mother and sister, and presumably attended elementary school.


Season 5

"Self Help"

A.J. is seen in a grocery store hiding with his mother and sister after Abraham kills multiple people, presumably survivors who harmed them. They are terrified of what Abraham has become and his mother leaves with A.J. and Becca the next day, and upon finding a car, they are attacked and devoured by walkers, later being found dead by Abraham.


Killed By

After Abraham brutally killed a group of men, Ellen was so terrified of Abraham that she ran away with their children.

A.J., his mother, and his sister run away from Abraham, being afraid of his brutality. However, they are attacked and devoured by walkers.

The next day, their torn apart bodies are discovered by Abraham outside the grocery store.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims A.J. has killed:


Abraham Ford

Abraham was deeply protective of A.J., just as with the rest of his family, though there is a strong suggestion that this feeling wasn't always mutual, as A.J. was deeply disturbed after witnessing his father kill a group of men for their protection. While it is unknown whether A.J. wanted to leave his father to be with his mother when they left, Abraham's horrified reaction to his demise at the hands of walkers suggests that Abraham had a relatively positive relationship with him, nearly driving him to suicide without his constant need to protect to act as his life's purpose.

Season 5


  • A.J. is most likely short for Abraham Jr., similar to Alvin Jr. from the Video Game series. However, this was never confirmed.
