"You were going to hurt her. That's not right! I had to tell!"
—Brian to the bullies.[src]

Brian is a character first encountered in Issue 131 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is a resident of the Hilltop Colony.

Not much is known about Brian's life prior to the apocalypse.

Post-Apocalypse

A New Beginning

Brian is first seen running from two boys telling them to stop until he is cornered. Brian tells the bullies that they were going to hurt a girl, so he had to tell, and the bullies retaliate by beating him, telling him that he'll never squeal again, however he is saved by Sophia who bashes the two boys causing them to retreat. As Sophia helps Brian up, he tells her that it wasn't that bad this time, meaning that he has been beaten before, and he tells Sophia that she is getting tougher. Carl interrupts the two, and as Sophia leaves Brian picks up his glasses and puts them back on.

After Issue 131, Brian's fate is left unknown. It may be assumed he's currently living at Hilltop, however, it is possible he was killed during the Whisperer War.
