Maya Evans is one of the seven protagonists and a survivor of the outbreak in Overkill's The Walking Dead. She is also the protagonist of her self-titled trailer.


Maya is a former surgeon, and no stranger to making life or death decisions. She finds herself pushed beyond what she could ever expect in a Washington, D.C. ridden with walkers. Now facing similar decisions but with far grimmer consequences, she’s the group's medic and is just as good at taking lives as she is at saving them.


Washington, D.C.[]

Nothing is known about Maya's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that she worked as a surgeon and had a fiancé named David.



"Maya Trailer"[]

At the start of the apocalypse, a bitten man is wheeled into the hospital. Maya and David are about the perform surgery on him, but he succumbs to his infection and dies before they get the chance to. He quickly reanimates and attacks Maya. He is put down by either Maya or David, but soon walkers start to overrun the hospital and Maya and David fight them, but David gets bitten on the neck in the process. A tearful Maya shoots him in the head to ensure he doesn't reanimate.

Sometime later, while washing blood of her hands at a diner, Maya sadly thinks backs to these events and punches a mirror.
