"Hey, hey, hey! I give up! I give... I'm done! I'm done!"
—Duke's last words to Morgan Jones.[src]

Duke is an antagonist and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is a member of the Saviors.


Location Unknown

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


Washington, D.C.

At some point in the apocalypse, Duke somehow came into contact with a group named "the Saviors" which he subsequently joined.

Duke aided his group in terrorizing other survivors and communities around the area into subjugating to Negan's will, where their victims would be forced to give half their supplies in exchange for not being murdered.

Season 8


Duke is at the Sanctuary with the other Saviors getting ready for the final assault when he and a group of Saviors are dispatched by Negan to set up a roadblock, when in reality they are being used as a decoy.

While setting up the roadblock, the group is attacked by Rick and the Militia and all are killed. Duke surrenders to the group, but Morgan instead stabs him with his staff and then slices his throat, killing him. Shortly after, Morgan sees a hallucination of Jared, who proceeds to mock him and the way he killed Duke.


Killed By

Negan deliberately sends Duke along with a small group of Saviors to set up a roadblock and walkers on a road and be sacrificed as part of his plan to lead Rick and the Militia into a trap.

After his fellow Saviors are killed, Duke surrenders to Morgan, however, Morgan impales him with his staff and then slices his throat.
