"Gonna be a hot time in the old town I right?"
—Saul to Austin.[src]

Saul is a character featured in the novel The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor. He is a resident of Woodbury, who is described as having a nicotine-yellow beard, an old, ancient face as wrinkled as wadded parchment, and is a Hasidic Jew with rotting teeth.


Atlanta, Georgia

Nothing is known about Saul's life before or as the outbreak began. Except that he lived on the streets of Atlanta.


"Rise of the Governor"

Saul appears with Charlie Banes and another homeless resident of Woodbury huddled around a barrel. As Brian Blake passes by he asks them if there are many biters in the area to which Charlie exclaims he's never heard them called that before.

"The Road to Woodbury"

Saul appears again with Charlie and another homeless man around their barrel outside the 'Feed and Seed' store in Woodbury. When Martínez and Sam fight after the murder of Josh Hamilton, Saul and the others dive out the way as the two crash through the store's window and knock over the barrel.

"The Fall of the Governor"

While Austin Ballard is waiting for the arena fight to begin, Saul arrives and sits next to him in the stands, commending on how its "gonna be a hot time in the old town tonight". Austin soon gets up and leaves to go and see Lilly.

Main Article: Saul (Comic Series)

Saul doesn't appear after the events of 'The Fall of the Governor'. It is possible he was killed in the Pentecostal People of God's suicide pact or devoured by walkers after it.


Killed By

If Saul wasn't involved in the Prison assault, he was possibly killed by the walkers that overran Woodbury, or was poisoned in the suicide pact by the Pentecostal People of God.

It is confirmed, however that Saul did not escape onto the courthouse roof.
