Nothing is known about Barnes' life prior to or as the outbreak began.
At some point in the apocalypse, Barnes joined a community called the Alexandria Safe-Zone.
Barnes is among the volunteers to help build the wall on one of the roads to deter the mega herd in the operation to lure it away from Alexandria. One day as they are in mid-construction, he and the other Alexandrians are almost bitten by walkers until Morgan saves them after ignoring Rick's suggestion of forcing the scared residents to learn how to defend themselves. When the walkers break free from the quarry and the plan is set into motion, Barnes and the others take immediate action.
When a part of the herd ventures away from the road into the woods due to a blaring horn coming from Alexandria, the group runs through the woods in an attempt to return to the community. On the way, Barnes complains to Michonne about Rick's actions. As Rick makes a plan with Glenn and Michonne, a distracted Barnes is attacked by a walker and gets his throat ripped out. After the walker is put down, Michonne mercifully stabs Barnes through the head to end his suffering and prevent his reanimation.
