"Sit down, Doc. You look worse than I do. Close your peepers. Rest. (...) Ain't for me. I made my peace. But others... need to have your head on straight."
—Cheryl to Siddiq.[src]

Cheryl is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is a resident of the Alexandria Safe-Zone.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Cheryl's life prior to or as the outbreak began.



At some point in the apocalypse, Cheryl joined a community called the Alexandria Safe-Zone.

Season 10


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 residents admitted to the infirmary as her condition has not improved. Siddiq sits by her bedside and 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.

"Open Your Eyes"

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 unfortunately asphyxiated by Dante with a pillow as she is too weak to defend herself. Her body is then wrapped and taken outside to be buried. While Dante digs her grave, Siddiq finds them and becomes depressed over her death.

"The World Before"

In a flashback, Cheryl is asphyxiated with a pillow by Dante. She tries to reach up and stop him, but she is unable to.


Killed By
  • Mary (Indirectly Caused)

As a result of Mary poisoning Alexandria's water supply with walker remains, Cheryl contracts cholera and becomes ill, leaving her bedridden.

Ultimately, Dante decides to asphyxiate her with her own pillow and then puts her down to prevent her reanimation.

  • In "Stalker", it is revealed that Cheryl's grave was actually used as a cover for a tunnel that the Whisperers dug underneath Alexandria's walls. Since Dante was the one that buried Cheryl, it is unclear if her body is actually in the grave or was buried in another location.
