Lacey Greene is a character first encountered in Issue 10 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. She is Hershel Greene eldest daughter, and the sister of Maggie, Billy, Shawn, Arnold, and the twin sisters, Rachel and Susie.
Not much is known about Lacey's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that she was born in 1978 to her mother and Hershel Greene. She moved to the farm with her family after their mother passed away.
Lacey is shown as sarcastic and weary of her father, like Maggie, her sister. She, like many of the other Greene children, did not get to interact with the other survivors very much before her death. She showed the new-coming group around the farm in a sarcastic tone following their arrival. She had in her possession a collection of books and stories in the house, and she lent one to Carol for some reading. Following the group's target practice sequence, and the capture of a zombie, Arnold and Lacey climbed from the back of the barn into the hayloft to distract the occupied barn inhabitants. Following the accidental release of the zombies, Lacey became frightened as her brother leaped to save her father. After her brother's neck was ripped apart, she leaped off the loft and onto bushels of hay, racing to his side. She raced toward her dying brother and father, pulling out a revolver as she did. As she did so, she was surrounded, and devoured.
Then, she was put down by her distraught father in order to prevent reanimation. Following her death, she was buried on a patch of land on the farm, and a funeral was held for all three Greene children lost in the accidental release.
