|This article is about the TV Series character. You may be looking for her Comic Series counterpart, the walker, the voice actor, or the actors Erin Hunter and Erin Leigh Bushko.|
Nothing is known about Erin's life prior to or as the outbreak began. It is possible she lived in or near Alexandria before the apocalypse.
Erin is first encountered on the porch of a home with Stacy and another woman as she talks to Carol Peletier about alternative ways of baking cookies. Later, she attends Deanna Monroe's party, where she socializes with other residents and the new arrivals. As Sasha Williams attempts to navigate the party, she can be overheard talking to Reg Monroe about another woman and how she takes too long to read the only book her book club shares.
Erin is among the townspeople present at the community forum to discuss Rick Grimes' fate. She also witnesses the murder of Reg, which she is horrified at, and the subsequent execution of Pete Anderson.
Erin is at the pantry with Olivia, Carol, and Shelly Neudermeyer going over the food supply and gathering ingredients to prepare for dinner. Erin praises Carol for her culinary skills and agrees with her after she criticizes Shelly's smoking habit. Later, Erin is attacked by a Wolf named Aphid outside her home and her abdomen is sliced open with a machete. Carol kills Aphid immediately after, avenging her. Deeming her wounds too severe, Carol stabs Erin in the head out of mercy to prevent reanimation and her cries from attracting any nearby Wolves. As Erin lays dead in a pool of blood, Carol sits for a few moments, devastated at the loss of her friend.
