"I'm sorry... I thought there would be more time... I love you."
—Terry after shooting his undead wife.[src]

Terry Harrison is a character seen in The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.



Not much is known about Terry's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he was born in 1951 and was in some kind of military service in which he lost some of his ability to hear. He is a retired banker living with his wife in Palmetto Estates.


Palmetto Estates

Terry is surviving in his house with his ill wife. He lives in Palmetto Estates with Jane and Aiden Carroll. He was keeping in contact with them whilst they were trying to signal helicopters to pick them up.

In his house, Terry asks of Daryl Dixon to find some supplies for his ill wife before the helicopter arrives. There are some antibiotics in the pharmacy, when Daryl Dixon returns he hears a gun shot. Terry had to kill his wife before her reanimation. Terry mentions to Daryl that he wants to look for his daughters. His daughters are Andrea and Amy. When the helicopter arrives, if Daryl chooses to get Terry, Aiden takes off in the helicopter while Jane is left behind, and Daryl has to take Terry with him to the evacuation center in Atlanta. If Daryl does not choose to get Terry, he gets Jane instead. His current fate is unknown, however, he can be heard screaming in the background, hinting he has been killed. If the player returns to Terry's house after the scream, Terry will be dead next to the bed.

Firesign Stadium

If Terry reaches Firesign Stadium, he and another survivor will board the last evacuation helicopter. When Daryl's brother Merle informs Daryl that the helicopter pilot was bitten, Daryl tries to tell Terry but the helicopter takes off, leaving his fate unknown.


Killed By
  • Zombies (Determinant)
  • Helicopter Crash (Assumed, Determinant)

If Daryl chooses to save Jane, Terry's screams can be heard in the background. When the player gets back to Terry's house, Terry will lie on the ground next to the bed.

Terry, along with any other survivor that may survive till the Evac in Georgia, most likely died in a helicopter crash, as Merle notices that the "Whirlybird Pilot" had been bitten and said he was already looking like he was going to turn. The pilot might have turned mid-flight causing a crash, possibly killing Terry and the other passengers.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Terry has killed:


  • Can't Be Dismissed
  • Prefers Rifles
  • Weak


  • His last words to his wife were the same words that Andrea said when killing a reanimated Amy.
  • Choosing to save Terry will reward the player with the "Marksman Boost" relic.
