- "I told you, children are capable of anything."

Jocelyn's Group is a group of survivors first introduced in a flashback in Season 9 of AMC's The Walking Dead. Jocelyn was the only adult while the rest of the group members were children. They served as the primary antagonistic group of the episode "Scars".
Nothing is known about the lives of the children in Jocelyn's group. It can be assumed they were just regular kids and students before the outbreak broke out. All that is known about Jocelyn is that she and Michonne attended college together where they became close friends and helped each other through many painful experiences.
At some point following the outbreak, Jocelyn eventually began to care for young children (presumably orphaned or kidnapped by her) and formed a cult-like group of survivors in which she trained the children to become hardened survivors and killers in order to ensure their survival in the post-apocalyptic world. She achieved this by teaching them how to use weapons, kill walkers, as well as mutilate other survivors to prove their strength. The children were also used as bait in order for Jocelyn and her group to infiltrate other settlements and communities to raid their supplies and kidnap other young children to add to their cult.
In a flashback, Jocelyn, Mitchell, and Winnie are found by a group from Alexandria in the woods and are brought to the community. Michonne recognises her as her friend from college and decides to let her group stay.
A while later, Jocelyn runs from the infirmary panicking and tells Michonne she needs to get back to "them". Michonne calms her down and offers help. Later, Michonne and a group follow Winnie to a factory where they find several kids hiding out and bring them to Alexandria.
At night, Jocelyn's kid group enjoys a bonfire with the community kids. In her house, Michonne tells Jocelyn she's impressed with the kids' hunting skills, with Jocelyn telling her the kids are capable of anything. In the middle of the night, Jocelyn and her group kidnap Judith and other children, kill a resident and leave with the food supply and guns.
The next day, Michonne and Daryl spot one of Jocelyn's kids outside of an abandoned school. They chase him until they're met by all of the kids in a hallway. Daryl gets shot in the shoulder with an arrow while Linus knocks Michonne unconscious.
Sometime later, they wake up bloodied and tied to a pipe. Linus painfully brands an iron X on Daryl and Jocelyn tells Michonne the kids can't be soft. Winnie then brands Michonne as she shrieks in pain. When they are left alone, Daryl and Michonne break free and split up. Michonne sees Jocelyn in the hallway and demands to know where Judith and the rest of the kids are. As they argue, Gina points Michonne's own katana at her. Jocelyn leaves and orders her and Linus to kill her. However, Michonne finds an exit and is immediately beaten over and over with a wooden plank by Jocelyn. Michonne summons the strength to stab her in her leg and the chest, killing her.
Michonne gets up and tells the kids they can all return to Alexandria, but Mitchell instructs the kids to kill the Alexandrians as he deals with her. She's forced to kill him as the other kids close in. Michonne begs the kids to stop but they all attack her and she's forced to kill them one by one until Winnie remains. She cries at the sight of her dead friends and then runs away.
