Quan is among the hundreds of Saviors and workers milling about the marketplace at the Sanctuary as the soldiers prepare for the final battle against the Militia. After the war ends and Negan is defeated, Quan is outside gardening with Laura and the other surviving Saviors. He and another young resident open the gates as Tara, Rosita, Eduardo, and other volunteers from Hilltop arrive with panes of glass to help repair the windows of the Sanctuary.

Season 9

Sometime after the events of the bridge's destruction and the 6 year time jump, Quan moved to the Hilltop Colony. He may have moved after the fall of the Sanctuary, or he possibly chose to move beforehand.

Quan and another Hilltop guard escort Connie and Kelly back to Hilltop when the Whisperers suddenly arrive. He prevents Kelly from running after Connie, who is lagging behind, and gets Kelly inside the gates to safety.


After witnessing the commotion that ensued when the Whisperers arrived, Quan remains armed with a spear and joins the other residents at the front gate.

"The Calm Before"

Quan is among the Hilltop residents that attend the fair at the Kingdom. He watches from the crowd as Ezekiel declares they've finally accomplished Rick, Carl, and Jesus' dreams of reuniting the communities. “Let the fair of a new beginning begin!” Ezekiel says as everyone celebrates and applauds. In the fair, Quan sells moonshine and other beverages from his booth with Papa Bear to the fair attendees.

The next day, Quan listens from the crowd as Siddiq delivers the tragic news about the fate of the missing fair attendees, tells them how brave the victims were in their final moments and how he was intentionally kept alive to tell this very story. He encourages everyone to remember the fallen as brave heroes and to honor them.

Season 10


Quan is among the coalition soldiers stationed at Alexandria. After waves of walkers begin surrounding the settlement, he attends the town meeting on how to handle the situation. After the meeting, he is among the crowd of people being instructed by Gabriel on how to repel the walkers and reports to his assigned location. For the next two days, Quan fights alongside the other soldiers and Alexandrians in defeating the walkers and removing their corpses.

"Silence the Whisperers"

One morning, Quan attends a combat training session led by Aaron with several other soldiers.

"What It Always Is"

Quan is among the coalition soldiers on guard duty at Hilltop.

"Morning Star"

Quan is among the Hilltoppers going about their business in town, though on high alert. After the caravan of children return to town, he listens as Daryl, Dianne, and the others discuss that the roads leading away from Hilltop have been blocked and that the Whisperers are closing in on them. He then helps the other townspeople prepare for the incoming battle and stays within the walls with the other residents for safety.

"Walk With Us"

Quan is among the residents to help defend the Hilltop as the Whisperers and their horde push into the settlement. He helps load the catapults with stones as they are launched onto the horde outside the walls. Ultimately, it is unknown what happened to Quan as the zombies continue to push into the burning Hilltop, as he was not seen among the several survivor groups to escape Hilltop.

  • While his name has not been mentioned in dialogue nor has the character been credited, the name Quan comes from a chalkboard displaying his name at the moonshine booth in "The Calm Before". The chalkboard reads "Hilltop Hooch + Papa Quan's Lightnin Shine. Mmm good!" Quan is named after the actor who portrays him, Quandae Stewart, while "Papa" refers to Jamel Vaughn's character name from the set, Papa Bear.
