This article is about the TV Series character. For other pages with the same name, see: Ana

"We were at a refugee center together and there was a fire. People were just trampling over me. Sam saved my life. We didn't know each other before. It didn't heal right, but it healed. And we found each other. It was worth it."
—Ana to Rick Grimes and Carol Peletier about her injured leg.[src]

Ana is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is the girlfriend of Sam.


Ana, like her boyfriend Sam, is an unusually trusting and optimistic survivor. She is shown to be quite generous, offering Rick and Carol fruit. It is revealed that she and Sam met after he saved her when her leg got trampled. She is not combat-proficient and has stated to take around 5 or 6 shots just to kill a single walker. She and Sam insist on helping gather supplies despite their poor condition. Rick argues against this, thinking they are unfit to go scavenging, but she and Sam convince him. Unfortunately, Rick is proven to be correct when Ana is later found devoured by walkers.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Ana's life prior to or as the outbreak began.


Unknown Refugee Center

Sometime before the events of the episode "Indifference", Ana and Sam were at a refugee center when a fire broke out. The resulting mob of refugees escaping the fire trampled over Ana, leaving one of her legs crippled. Sam saved her from further injury from the mob, an act which resulted in a close relationship between Sam and Ana. Her leg, however, did not heal correctly, causing her to have trouble moving quickly. Ana and Sam were then separated from their original group, leaving them to rely on each other for survival.

Season 4


While scavenging for supplies in a neighborhood, Rick and Carol find Ana with Sam in a house, trapped in a bathroom because they could not kill the one walker outside. After Carol killed the walker, Ana and Sam, in gratitude, offer them fruit they found in the house. Carol then fixes Sam's dislocated shoulder, to which Ana is grateful for. When asked why they couldn't kill the walker, Ana and Sam admit that they aren't very adept in killing "skin-eaters", and were "trying to play it safe" since it was only the two of them now. Rick then asks them the three questions (the same ones he asked Clara), and he and Carol allow them to be part of the prison group. Despite Rick's reluctance, Ana goes to get fruits from the nearby greenhouse to prove her worth as a new group member. Rick and Carol later find her severed leg and, in the distance, her body being devoured by walkers.


Killed By
  • Zombies
  • Unknown cause due to severed leg (Caused or Direct)

As Rick and Carol begin returning to the meeting place, at which they were to meet with the young couple, they come across a lone basket and scattered fruit on the ground. Upon further investigation they find Ana's severed leg and, in the distance, her body being devoured by walkers.

It is not known who or what caused her leg to be severed, and whether her severed leg was what killed her or prevented her from escaping nearby walkers.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Ana has killed:

  • Possibly numerous counts of zombies



Ana is Sam's girlfriend. Ana met when their camp was overrun by walkers, and they teamed up together, and eventually became lovers. Ana says that Sam saved her life and they fell in love and the rest is history indicating they have been together for a while, long enough for Ana's broken leg to heal back over.

Carol Peletier

Carol and Ana seemed to have a stable relationship for the short time they knew each other. Carol reattached Sam's dislocated arm and Ana was shown to be incredibly grateful like Sam. Carol also suggested that Ana and Sam help them search the houses. Ana and Sam agreed to try and prove they are helpful and go their separate ways. Rick and Carol discover Ana's body being devoured. Carol shows no remorse at the discovery.

Rick Grimes

Rick and Ana seemed to have a stable relationship for the short time they knew each other. Rick recommended that the two stay at the house but after Carol suggests that the help look for supplies in the other houses Ana and Sam were eager to prove their worth. It is assumed that Rick was worried that their injuries would slow them down and put them in danger. Rick was shown slightly saddened by Ana's death as he noticed her missing leg and her corpse being devoured.
