I wanted something to fight with, a weapon like you and Rosita have.
―Gracie to Judith about wanting to find a weapon to help fight.[src]

Gracie is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is the daughter of a Savior. After the death of her father and the end of the war between the Militia and the Saviors, she is adopted by Aaron and resides with him at the Alexandria Safe Zone.


Gracie is first found by Rick Grimes after he kills her father in hopes of getting to a weapons room. After he realizes he just killed her father, Rick is immediately filled with guilt. He takes Gracie out of the outpost where she is adopted by Aaron.

Six years after Rick's disappearance, Gracie is shown to be a kind, friendly, and innocent girl. She is shown to get along with the rest of the kids, especially Judith who is her best friend. After Judith and Carl's keepsake is broken, she is the first to offer to help fix it. Compared to Judith, Gracie is a less experienced survivor, though she wants to be more useful. At one point she states she wishes she was as brave as Judith. She shows her naivety when she tries to find a weapon in the basement despite it flooding, which ends up trapping both her and Judith.

Gracie has been shown to be extremely intelligent as she can name all the state capitals and their main cities at only eight years old, she reads at levels way past most children her age group, she loves riding bicycles with her dad and her friends.

Aaron is shown to greatly care for his daughter, even having a nightmare where he loses her. When she and Judith get trapped in a basement, he is shown to be willing to risk his life for her and jumps into the water infested basement with no hesitation.

The Saviors doted upon Gracie and furnished her own bedroom, and their leader Negan Smith came to meet Gracie.
