Regina is an antagonist and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She was a high-ranking member of the Saviors and one of Negan's four outpost leaders alongside Gavin, Simon, and Eugene Porter. Following the war with the Militia and the later disbanding of the Saviors, she joined Jed's group of rough raiders. She served as the secondary antagonist of the first half of Season 9.
Nothing is known about Regina's life prior to or as the outbreak began. It's possible she may have lived in the Virginia area.
At some point in the apocalypse, Regina somehow came into contact with a group named "The Saviors" which she subsequently joined as a lieutenant.
Regina makes her first appearance during the militia's attack on the Sanctuary. She exits the Sanctuary alongside Negan, Dwight, Simon, Eugene, and Gavin. When Rick calls the lieutenants to surrender by name, she introduces herself, as he didn't know who she was.
Regina and the others refuse to surrender, and once the militia opens fire on them, they proceed to flee back inside the Sanctuary. The fence is blown apart, and a herd surrounds the Sanctuary.
Regina is present for the meeting with Negan and his other lieutenants (Simon, Dwight, Eugene, and Gavin) at the Sanctuary. They discuss the joint rebellion of Alexandria, the Hilltop and the Kingdom. The meeting is interrupted when shots are fired by the militia, and Regina and the others exit to face the intruders. The events of "Mercy" then take place.
Following the herd and the loss of Negan, the lieutenants inside the Sanctuary debate what to do in their current predicament. Regina is the first to suggest that they must assume Negan is dead. Simon disagrees and questions if Regina is really Negan; she states that she is. She then proposes that they send a crew of forty workers outside to clear a path in the herd, but Eugene argues that the workers would be overcome in minutes. Regina explains that the workers would be a distraction while a small team snuck past the herd to warn the outposts. Eugene points out flaws in that plan as well, claiming it would cause unrest among the workers. They continue to disagree until Dwight becomes a voice of reason.
While the lieutenants are in another meeting, Laura enters to notify them that the workers are coming up the stairs. They all exit into the corridor and find it full of workers making demands. Someone asks where Negan is; when another worker draws a gun, preparing to kill Simon, but Regina shoots him and says she is Negan. The workers and lieutenants alike kneel when they hear whistling down the hall, as they recognize the sound as Negan, who made it inside safe with Gabriel. The high-ranking Saviors reassemble again later, and Gary, Laura, and Arat inform the group that someone had taken guns from the armory to give to the workers.
Regina and other Saviors help open fire on the invading zombies when they break into the Sanctuary. She takes a position on the stairs as screaming workers flee to the upper floors, holding her fire once the pile of zombie corpses jam up the base of the stairwell. Afterwards, she and Dwight enters Negan's office, reporting that the walkers have completely overrun the ground floor of the Sanctuary. Negan assures everyone that Eugene has come up with a plan to solve their problems. As Eugene concludes his meeting with Negan and promptly leaves, Regina and Dwight remain in the room with Negan to be briefed on the escape plan.
Regina appears alongside Eugene Porter at his Bullet Factory Outpost. She is seen standing outside the entrance to the building supervising the delivery of spent shell casings that the workers are unloading and transporting inside the facility.
After Eugene returns to the Bullet Factory Outpost, he is greeted by Regina who tells him that Negan has returned to the Sanctuary and intends to wipe out the Hilltop. Regina reassures Eugene that they have established a perimeter around the outpost to protect it.
Regina is part of the Saviors' ambush on the Militia. When Regina attempts to open fire, her handgun explodes due to having been loaded with faulty ammunition manufactured by Eugene. She attempts to attack Eugene but is shot and wounded by him and then Rosita. She is then forced to surrender along with the surviving Saviors and eventually returns to the Sanctuary.
At the Sanctuary, Regina, now walking with a cane, scares some crows away from the dying crops in annoyance. Then, she helps out D.J. and the others with the fermentation process of converting corn to fuel.
Having moved from the Sanctuary to the work camp along with dozens of other Saviors, Regina is part of the team of laborers working to build a bridge connecting the communities' trade routes. As Ezekiel and Carol talk at their tent, Regina and Arat pass by the couple as they talk and laugh with each other. Later that day, she works on the bridge with the other survivors. She receives a cup of water from Henry and thanks him for the water. She also witnesses Justin manhandle Henry before he is knocked to the ground. That night, she socializes with Laura and Jed around a campfire.
On the road, Regina and a small group of Saviors stop Maggie and Kal from bringing food to the Sanctuary to question her about their missing people. Regina watches as Jed steals a tomato out of the back and takes a large bite. Maggie says she'll mark him down for it while Regina and the other Saviors let her pass.
At the camp, the Saviors are furious with the news of Justin's death. Alden promises they'll get to the bottom of it but is punched in the face by Jed, who claims he isn't one of them anymore. Carol steps in with her gun at her hip, stopping Jed. Regina watches from the crowd as the Saviors start accusing Daryl and Anne of being the culprits. She agrees with Norris' theory that Anne is the one responsible for the missing Saviors, claiming she must have done it out of revenge for what Simon did to her people. She watches on as Norris and D.J. grab axes to retaliate when Rick rides in the middle of the group with his gun drawn and warns everyone to back off.
The next morning, Regina along with the other Saviors leave the campsite.
At the camp, as Carol packs up, an armed Jed and several Saviors return. He reveals he knows that Oceanside's been killing the Saviors and he needs her to step aside so he can enact his revenge. Carol pretends to surrender but attacks him again, however Regina and more Saviors show up and a shoot-out ensues.
On the bridge, as Rick limps away before collapsing, he hallucinates as Regina and the others rush past him to kill the walkers.
At some point following the shootout at the bridge camp and Rick's supposed death, the Sanctuary eventually falls and the Saviors disband. Jed takes lead of a group of a few surviving Saviors, including Regina, and the group eventually become raiders and take whatever they can get their hands on due to desperation for supplies.
Six years later, Regina fakes a cry for help and Henry runs over to help, only to find Regina with a group of former Saviors. She mocks Henry while pointing a gun at him. Carol runs over with a bow and arrow as Jed walks up with a gun and smiles.
Jed tells Carol and Henry that since the Sanctuary was abandoned they've had to get more desperate. He tells her he's going to let them off since she spared him back in the day, but he's taking all their stuff, including her ring. This angers Henry, who kicks up his stick and knocks Jed down. Jed throws Henry to the ground and Carol jumps in and gives him her ring. Jed thanks her and he, along with Regina, leaves with his people.
At night, Carol returns to the Saviors camp. She lights a match and reminds Jed that they hurt her son. She drops the match, igniting and killing all the Saviors she poured gasoline on, including Regina.
- Killed By
As payback for hurting Henry and presumably killing other survivors for their supplies, Carol locates Regina and her group's camp. She spreads fuel around and uses a lit match to ignite the fuel, burning Regina and the other Saviors to death.
This list shows the victims Regina has killed:
- Regina appears to have been the highest ranking female Savior while under Negan's leadership and the only female leader of a Savior outpost; in this case the Shephard Office Plaza.
- Regina is also the last of Negan's closest lieutenants and outpost leaders to die aside from Eugene, who redeemed himself.
- With the deaths of Regina, Jed and their group, the remaining known antagonistic Saviors aside from Negan are dead.
- She is the first named Native-American character to appear on The Walking Dead and second overall as the first one was Terminus Resident 1.
- A year and a half after Negan's defeat, Regina is observed walking with a cane, as a result of being shot in the leg by Eugene during the final battle. 6 years after Rick's presumed death, however, she is shown walking without it once more.
- During the In Memoriam on Talking Dead for "Who Are You Now?," Regina is not named despite her death being shown. Instead, she is simply grouped in with the other former Saviors who are billed as Saviors Getting Lit. Only Jed gets his own separate part where he is billed as Savior Jed. This is despite the fact that Regina had a longer role stretching through Season 8.
