Little is known about this soldier's life before the outbreak, other than that he was part of the U.S. Military. Judging by his patch, he was a member of the 1st Cavalry Division of the army. He may have been stationed at Fort Benning, or Fort Hood. (The latter is in Texas, where his unit would be based.)
This U.S. Armed Forces corporal is seen in the Harrison Memorial Hospital during Shane's flashback. While Shane is attempting to help an unconscious Rick out of his hospital bed, this corporal opens the door and Shane ducks to hide. The corporal inspects the room, noticing Rick, but takes no action. A soldier from the hallway yells for him. "Come on corporal, move it!" This prompts the corporal to exit the hospital room in order to retreat from the incoming walkers. His status is unknown after that.
This list shows the victims soldier has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies and unnamed people
- "TS-19" (Flashback)
