Lieutenant Moyers is an antagonist and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's Fear The Walking Dead. He is a lieutenant of the U.S. Military. He served as the primary antagonist of the second half of Season 1.
Moyers seems to have very little patience in his mission of managing civilians, and can be dismissive of their questions and concerns, offering little or no explanation. He is somewhat domineering and is usually very direct, as seen when he unapologetically tells Travis that if he doesn't help talk down another civilian, he will take the civilian by force. His bluntness even makes some of the survivors uncomfortable in how he so normally speaks of the people as objects. His apparent callous attitude towards the concerns of Travis and other residents was seen in his speech and his decision to not even notify a family that the husband/father was detained.
Lieutenant Moyers was a soldier in the U.S. Military prior to the apocalypse. His unit insignia shows that he at one time served in the 10th Mountain Division of the U.S. Army.
Lieutenant Moyers is a soldier of the 79th Infantry Combat Brigade Team in the 40th Infantry Division, California Army National Guard. Assigned with guarding Travis Manawa's neighborhood and clearing the surrounding area, he is seen addressing the citizens of the safe zone. He then enlists Travis's help to convince Doug Thompson to submit to the health screenings that the military is giving to all residents.
The next day, Travis finds signs that Doug snuck out of the safe zone, abandoning his family. He talks about it to Moyers, who is practicing his golf swing on the other side of the fence, Moyers says that they actually detained Doug and had him taken to another location because he was causing trouble. When Travis suggests that he should have told Doug's family so they wouldn't be worrying, Moyers casually claimed that it wasn't his job to do that, and that Travis should tell them.
Lieutenant Moyers is outside the safe zone with Andrew Adams, Sergeant Castro, Corporal Cole and other guardsmen as Ofelia Salazar demands for her mother's whereabouts. Adams is sent to calm her down as Moyers demands Castro to get the situation under control. He also orders Castro to stop Cole from abandoning the squad and maintain control of his men. Later, Moyers takes Travis on a trip to a library where numerous zombies and a group of soldiers are inside. As Travis watches from the Humvee, Moyers and his men headed inside to battle the undead, only for that the squad came out without him claiming that he will never come out, implying that he was probably killed in action.
- Killed By
After Moyers receives a call from a squad pinned down by the Infected in a library, he and his squad who were planning to take Travis to the field hospital on his request, decide to the return.
They disembark their Humvee and head inside. As Travis listens to the radio from the Humvee, it is implied that the soldiers quickly found themselves outnumbered, then overwhelmed.
A short while later, Moyers' squad comes out, and after Travis asks Private Richards about Moyers. Richards replied that Moyers was being "held up and is not coming back".
This list shows the victims Moyers has killed:
- The casting call for this character used the name Tanner. The casting call described Tanner as "being sarcastic and someone doesn’t take anything too seriously. He is a loose cannon."
- It is revealed in the Fear the Walking Dead Story Sync that Moyers may have been fragged, which means he may have been deserted by his own squad while battling zombie hordes inside the library, either deliberately or just out of fear.
