Little is known about Ms. Martin prior to or as the outbreak began. It is known she was a nurse at Ericson's Boarding School for Troubled Youth.
When the headmaster and other adults fled from school, she stayed with the children. She was the one who taught Ruby basic first aid. It can be assumed however, that at an early point she was attacked and killed by walkers at the greenhouse. Before succumbing to the infection, she tied herself to a planter in order to prevent herself from harming the children.
- Killed By
- Zombies (Assumed, Alive)
She was attacked by zombies and later reanimated as a walker.
After Ruby asks Clementine to put Ms. Martin down, Clementine stabs her in the head.
Ruby and Ms. Martin have a good relationship. Ms. Martin taught Ruby how to patch people up, stitching, local anesthetics, painkillers, and fever reducers. Ruby became devastated to see her as a walker and asked Clementine to put her down, being unable to do it herself. She also wanted to give her a proper burial instead of burning her as Mitch desired.
This list shows the victims Ms. Martin has killed:
- Possibly numerous counts of zombies
- "Suffer The Children" (Zombified)
- When Clementine enters the room and Ms. Martin attacks her, she's unable to kill Clementine because she has a zip tie around her wrist. This could possibly mean she was bitten first and then tied herself up to avoid hurting and/or killing someone while being a walker.
- In "Done Running", Marlon says all the adults left the children at the boarding school to fend for themselves. In "Suffer The Children", it is revealed that Ms. Martin was the only adult that stayed behind to look after the kids. It is unknown why Marlon never mentioned Ms. Martin. Likely because he was close with her like Ruby and was devastated by her death.
