Nothing is known about Cheryl's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
Cheryl is among the Alexandrians being examined by Dante after falling sick to a mysterious illness. Dante reassures Cheryl that she will be okay and jokes that they would make a great couple together.
Later that day, Cheryl is among the townspeople admitted to the infirmary as her condition has not improved. Siddiq sits by her bedside as the two briefly talk about death, and he reassures her that she will be okay. She tells him that she is grateful to be lying in a comfortable bed, which is a modern luxury in the present world.
Cheryl is eventually moved to a separate room with her own bed and more space. She beckons Siddiq over and they chat about how he needs to remain strong for the others.
Later that day, Cheryl is asphyxiated by Dante with a pillow. Siddiq then goes to check on her but finds her missing, along with the bedsheets and the cross hanging on the wall over her bed. He finds Cheryl's wrapped body outside in the grass as Dante begins to dig her a grave.
In a flashback, it is revealed that Cheryl was asphyxiated with a pillow by Dante. She tries to reach up and stop him, but she is unable to.
