Annie is a character first encountered in Issue 127 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. She was either a part of the Alexandria Safe-Zone before or after the war against the Saviors. She is a member of the Militia during the war against the Whisperers.
Not much is known about Annie's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that she was living with her father and survived the outbreak alongside him. It is possible that she lived in or near Washington, D.C. before the outbreak.
Annie was either a part of the Alexandria Safe-Zone before or after the war. She is a farm hand in the community, and is first seen leading a horse through the Alexandria Safe-Zone. As she walks past Rick Grimes, she asks if he'd like to hop on and have her take him to the grand hall. However, Rick declines and tells her that he needs some exercise. Annie tells him to suit himself, and that she'll see him at lunch.
As Rick strolls through the streets of Alexandria, he earns disapproving glares from many residents for failing to act after Alpha killed twelve members of the communities (some being from Alexandria), with Annie being among the people glaring at Rick. She is later seen cheering for Rick after his speech about forming an army.
Annie is seen with the rest of the Militia shooting roamers to practice for the war with the Whisperers. She does very well. She returns back to Alexandria and greets her father who was worried for her being outside the walls.
Sometime later, Paula rushes to the gate where Annie and Siddiq are on patrol. They both ask her what she is doing at the gate; however, she avoids the question, and tells them to wait for Rick to arrive. As they attempt to further question her, Rick and Michonne walk up to the gate, where Siddiq and Annie learn that Negan has escaped.
Annie is seen with Rick saying that she and Alexandria support him in this war. When the Militia returns after the war she greets Paul Monroe and is happy that it's finally over.
Annie is on look out when the mega heard approaches Alexandria and informs everyone. She, Rick, and other attempt to fend of the heard through the gate before it crashes. Annie and Siddiq run for cover and hide in Eugene's house where she and Siddiq discover Eugene's radio.
Annie is later saying goodbye to Andrea as she is dying from a bite and is there with Rick after she dies. She is also there for the funeral for everyone who died from the heard and the Whisperers. She is seen comforting Mikey over the lose of his mother.
Annie informs Rick that Mikey is having a hard time dealing with the loss of his mom, she asks Rick to look after him. She is later seen taking her horse out to get shoes and tells Rick not to worry that Michonne will handle everything.
Annie is among the members of the Militia that were instructed by Dwight to follow Rick and the Governor of the Commonwealth, through her community visits, in case of danger. She is seen later with her fellow militiamen gunning down the herd of walkers near Oceanside even if she was supposed to be in lookout.

As of Issue 146, however, her friendship with him has apparently become strained as a result of his decision not to wage war on the Whisperers after their leader Alpha killed twelve people from the communities, some of which came from Alexandria.

After Rick's death she, like everyone else in the community is saddened by his death. She and everyone travels back to Alexandria to pay their respects.
