"Oh, fucking hell. Seriously? I'm done. I'm so fucking done with you. Everything is terrible, nothing is going your way. You're not happy at the sanctuary, you're not happy here. I'm sorry if you're so distraught over what's behind you that you can't see the good things in front of you. (...) No. Fuck off. Let me know when you're done being sad about the woman who fucked you over constantly. Maybe I'll still be interested."
—Laura to Dwight.[src]

Laura is a character first encountered in Issue 148 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. She was a prominent member of the Saviors, before abandoning them with Dwight. She is now a member of Rick Grimes' militia against the Whisperers.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Laura's life before or as the outbreak began. It's possible she lived in or near Virginia.


At some point, Laura joined the Saviors, presumably as a soldier.

No Turning Back

Dwight tells Laura that he doesn't want to be the leader anymore. He explains that he is under a lot of stress due to breaking up with Sherry and the situation with the Whisperers. Laura tells him that they need a leader, and he can't quit now. She then kisses Dwight, much to his surprise and admits her feelings for him. However, he leaves her, having already made up his mind on what to do. As Dwight leaves, Laura follows him out and says she's coming with him. They both take off for Alexandria and arrive as Rick announces that he plans to take action against the Whisperers, and Laura is among the crowd cheering for Rick.

Call To Arms

Laura is seen with the rest of the Militia shooting roamers to practice for the war with the Whisperers. She does well, while Vincent almost dies. She questions what Dwight has gotten her into and returns back to Alexandria. Later, she is among the Militia that saves Michonne and Aaron Beta, killing several Whisperers in the process. Dwight orders Michonne to ride back to the Hilltop with Aaron, saying he will track and kill Beta. When Michonne and Aaron leave, he briskly orders that they return. As they cross the border, Laura asks what's wrong, to which Dwight replies; "This is an act of war".

The Whisperer War

Laura is seen keeping lookout with Dwight and Magna. Laura asks Dwight how much longer they have to do these patrols, to which Dwight replies "until Rick says so". Later, she travels with Dwight and the Militia to set up lookout. Dwight asks her how long does she think it will take Gabriel to get up on the water tower, to which he jokingly replies "another thirty minutes". Up on the water tower, Gabriel spies an army of Whisperers.

A Certain Doom

Laura takes part in the protection of Alexandria from walkers alongside Dwight. She is swiftly taken hostage by the Saviors alongside Dwight and Heath and is present when Rick, Negan, and John negotiate and end the potential conflict.

Lines We Cross

Dwight tells Laura about his concerns over Rick as leader, even comparing him to Negan, likely due to Rick accidentally killing Sherry. Frustrated, Laura leaves Dwight and tells him to stop sulking over Sherry, who mistreated him constantly, and she might still be interested if he does so.

New World Order

Dwight comes to Laura and apologizes for how he has been acting. and asks if it's too late for them to have a relationship. She responds by saying "probably not."

Volume 31

Laura is among the members of the Militia that were instructed by Dwight to follow Rick and the Governor of the Commonwealth, through her community visits, in case of danger. She is seen later with her fellow militiamen gunning down the herd of walkers near Oceanside.

—Laura to Dwight.[src]

Their relationship is strained after Laura gets tired of Dwight still having feels for Sherry. Dwight later apologizes to Laura and indicates that he may want to start a relationship. She accepts his apology. Laura is devastated by Dwight's death.


"Let me know when you're done being sad about the woman who fucked you over constantly. "
—Laura to Dwight about Sherry.[src]
Laura has not yet been seen interacting with Sherry, however it is known she has zero respect for her; she (rightly) views Sherry as selfish for choosing luxury and comfort over love when she left Dwight to be with Negan. Laura is angry and jealous the Dwight care about Sherry, she also view Sherry as someone who continuously fucks Dwight over.  


"Are you trying to get shot?"
—Laura to Negan[src]
While not interacting much, Laura seems to have the same disdain for Negan as Dwight, and isn't amused by his jokes.  



  • Robert Kirkman confirmed in the Letter Hacks that Laura is Latina-American.
