"Sit. Your mom's been looking for you. (...) Showed up at my folks'. (...) Can't have that. Can't have people... (...) coming to me looking for you."
—Calvin to Nicholas Clark.[src]

Calvin Jasper, better known as Cal, is a character and an antagonist in AMC's Fear The Walking Dead. He is Nicholas Clark's best friend and drug dealer. He served as the primary antagonist of the episode "Pilot".


Los Angeles, California

Calvin was Nick's best friend, and alongside Nick's girlfriend Gloria, the two's drug dealer. He is also shown to know Nick's mother Madison and mother's boyfriend, and lives in the Los Angeles area with his parents.


Season 1


Calvin is outside his parents' house vacuuming their minivan when he is approached by Madison and Travis, who are looking for a runaway Nick. Calvin embraces Madison, but fails to produce any knowledge of Nick's whereabouts. Later, Calvin meets a distressed Nick at a diner. Nick explains to Calvin the story of how he saw his undead girlfriend Gloria eating a man, however, Calvin disputes this story.

Calvin, concerned that Nick is leaking his name and will become a danger to his drug-dealing career, takes Nick for a drive. He stops at a storm drain beneath the overpass and produces a gun, causing Nick to defend himself. While fighting, Calvin is shot in the process and Nick runs away in horror. He then reanimates and starts walking down the tunnel.

A while later, a reanimated Calvin is found by Madison and Travis. He tries to attack Madison, but Nick runs him over with Travis' truck. He is then further run over a second time, sending him flying into the storm drain. As Calvin lays down with broken bones protruding out of his flesh and his lower jaw torn away, he turns at the trio and snarls at them.

It is possible that after Operation Cobalt is implemented Calvin was killed by the napalm bombing. However, his fate is currently unknown.


Killed By

Calvin, increasingly skeptical of Nick's trustworthiness, attempts to kill him with a gun. However, the two end up fighting, causing Calvin to be shot by Nick in the chest and then to reanimate.
