"I'm all that's left."
—Ahmad telling Daryl Dixon about his group[src]

Ahmad Farran is an original character in The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.


Savannah, Georgia

Very little is known about Ahmad's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he was born in 1970 and lived and worked in Savannah, Georgia since he earned his master's degree in civil engineering.


Rural Georgia

He rescued and sheltered twenty-three survivors in a makeshift bunker through the initial outbreak. All were subsequently lost when traveling in a convoy toward Birmingham while Ahmad was foraging in the woods for food.

While moving through the Georgian countryside through a highway, Daryl Dixon reached Ahmad, who was cornered by walkers. He was atop of a truck, as the walkers reached desperately towards him. Daryl saved him, fighting off the walkers, and Ahmad was eager to join his group.

Firesign Stadium

If Ahmad reaches Firesign Stadium, he and another survivor will board the last evacuation helicopter. When Daryl's brother Merle informs Daryl that the helicopter pilot has been bitten, Daryl tries to tell Ahmad but the helicopter takes off, leaving Ahmad's fate unknown.


Killed By
  • Zombies (Supply Run, Determinant)
  • Helicopter crash (Speculation, Determinant)

Ahmad along with any other survivor that may survive until the Evac in Georgia, most likely died in a helicopter crash, as Merle notices that the "Whirlybird Pilot" had been bitten and said he was already looking like he was going to turn. The pilot might have turned mid-flight causing a crash, possibly killing Ahmad and the other passengers. Along with many other survivors, Ahmad can be "dropped" from the group to make room for a new member, leaving him to an equally unknown fate.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Ahmad has killed:

  • Possibly numerous counts of zombies


  • Stealthy
  • Weak
