"You don't have to fill his cup up anymore, baby. Grandpa's... sleeping."
—Mrs. García to Mariana about Salvador.[src]

Mrs. García (first name and née unknown), also referred to as Yaya by her grandchildren, is an original character who first appears in Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: A New Frontier.


Baltimore, Maryland

Little is known about Mrs. García's life prior to or as the outbreak began. She had a husband, a brother-in-law, two sons and a daughter-in-law, as well as two grandchildren.


A New Frontier

"Ties That Bind - Part 1"

During the early stages of the outbreak, her husband died in their house from cancer while her whole family (minus Javier) was present to witness his passing. Javier only arrives as Hector and his son were comforting her. Mrs. García was furious at Javier and slaps him for not being there for his father during his final moments. When Mariana goes upstairs to refill Salvador's cup, Mrs. García, wracked with sobs, tells her that she no longer has to refill his cup. Mariana startlingly tells her that her grandfather was awake. Confused, everyone follows Mariana to discover Salvador standing in his bedroom. Hector approaches him after pushing Mariana away, only to be attacked by his reanimated brother. Javier and David try to restrain their father when Salvador's wife storms in and asks what was happening. David tells her that Salvador had just attacked without warning. Mrs. García tries to comfort her husband, but gets bitten in the process. Stunned, she backs away into the arms of Javier and Kate and watches in shock as Salvador attacks David. Javier breaks a part of Salvador's bed frame and strikes Salvador with it as the children scream.

David then took her to the hospital for treatment, but she later died due to her infection. On David's way to hospital he gets backed up with traffic and she turned.

"Above The Law"

The family portrait can be seen in the García's house, Mrs. García appearing in it.

"From The Gallows"

Again in a flashback, the family portrait is seen in the García's house.


Killed By

When Salvador reanimated in his bedroom and attacked his children, Mrs. García came in to find out what was happening. In the attempt of calming Salvador and reassuring him that he was among family, Salvador bit her on the cheek, stunning her. Later, while stuck in traffic on the way to the hospital, she succumbs to the infection and dies.

It is unknown if she was put down by David or another survivor.


Salvador García

—Mrs. García trying to comfort a zombified Salvador.[src]

Before the outbreak, Mrs. García and Salvador were a married couple, and loved each other very much. During a game of Skulls, it is discovered that Salvador had cancer and didn't tell Mrs. García. When he dies in her home, she is devastated and slaps Javier for not being there to witness his passing. After Salvador reanimates, his wife tried to comfort him, not realizing he is now a zombie. She is bitten as a result, and is understandably shocked.

Hector García

Hector and Mrs. García seemed to have a good relationship. When Javier first arrives at the house, Hector can be seen through the window comforting Mrs. García as she sobs.

David García

David and Mrs. García seemed to have a good relationship. When David explains to Javier about their mother's fate, he is visibly upset.

Javier García

"Mama, you're gonna be okay. You'll be okay, Mama."
—Javier to his mother after she was bitten.[src]

Javier and Mrs. García had a good relationship, although she is shown to be rough with Javier, such as when she slaps him for not being there to see his father's death. But he still shows care about her feelings and her health, such as when he tells Salvador to tell Mrs. Garcia about his cancer (Determinant) or when he comforts her after being bitten by Salvador. It is unknown how Javier reacted to Mrs. García's demise, but he most likely was saddened.

Kate García

Kate and Mrs. Garcia aren't seen interacting, though it can be assumed they had a good relationship.

Gabriel García

Gabe and Mariana affectionately call Mrs. García "Yaya" like Mariana, Mrs. García doesn't tell Gabe about what happened to their grandfather. Although he most likely knows that Mrs. García died from her infection.

Mariana García

"You don't have to fill his cup anymore, baby, Grandpa's... Sleeping..."
—Mrs. García to Mariana after Salvador's death.[src]

Mariana and Mrs. García most likely got along due to her affectionately calling her Yaya. Mrs. García doesn't tell Mariana or Gabe about their Grandpa's Death, instead saying that he is "sleeping". Mariana most likely was not told what happened to Mrs. Garcia, but she most likely knew what happened later in the apocalypse.
