- "Michonne! It's Dominic. Where the hell are you? (...) Go pack your things, okay? We have to go! (...) We tried to wait. We're heading to Donna's. Just... Michonne. If you're still ... just stay safe, okay. They need you."

Dominic Hawthorne is a comic-adapted character who appears in the episode "What We Deserve" of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: Michonne. He is the ex-husband of Michonne Hawthorne and father of Colette Hawthorne and Elodie Hawthorne.
Little is known about Dominic's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he was once married to Michonne Hawthorne, with whom he had two daughters with and lived in a apartment.
When they divorced, Dominic maintained custody of their children. As Michonne moved out, the two girls begged their mother to stay, but Dominic insisted Michonne leave, despite her pleas to have a minute to say goodbye.
Dominic is mentioned briefly by Michonne and Donna if the former choses to answer the phone first during a flashback. Donna will mention that Dominic contacted her on the phone a short while earlier and sounded very panicked. The full story of what likely happened can be pieced together using different options within the same dialogue tree. Dominic had apparently attempted to help one of his neighbours who had been bitten, which would explain the used bandages found by Michonne left behind. The neighbour presumably turned and Dominic defended himself using a kitchen knife, seen by a bloodied knife found on the kitchen floor. He was assumed dead by Donna, but no trace of him or his daughters' whereabouts could be found by Michonne in his apartment.
Dominic appear in a flashback chronologically before the one in the previous episode. He is shown standing by as Michonne says goodbye to their two daughters following their divorce settlement. He tells the girls to let their mother go if that is what she wants, but Michonne tells him to give her a minute to say goodbye.
For the rest of the Video Game, Dominic's and his daughters' fates remain unknown, until they were revealed in the Comic Series. For further information, see:

Dominic was married to Michonne, so it can be assumed they used to love each other. They did, however, get a divorce. Michonne has hallucinations of him (like she did her daughters), implying she may miss him as well.
