"I'll call the cops!"
—The hermit to Rick Grimes and company after they break into his home.[src]

This hermit is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is an insane man who lives in an isolated hut in the woods.

Pre-Apocalypse

Rural Georgia

Nothing is known about this hermit's life prior to or as the outbreak began.

Post-Apocalypse

It is seen that this hermit survived over ten months of the apocalypse. It is unknown how he survived, as he seemed to have no idea that the apocalypse was occurring at all, believing that police were still existent.

Season 3

"When the Dead Come Knocking"

After realizing that there are too many walkers to safely engage at the forest path, Rick Grimes and his small group flee. They eventually come upon a shed with boarded-up windows and seek refuge within. Rick yanks on a blanket, awakening and startling the hermit, who draws a shotgun. Rick attempts reasoning with the frantic hermit and warns him of the walkers outside, but he's unresponsive to "walkers" and seems oblivious to the apocalypse in general, threatening to call the police on the group. Rick assures him that he's a cop and the hermit demands to see his badge, which he no longer possessed as it was left behind at the farm. Rick lies and claims it's in his pocket and seizes the opportunity to distract the hermit and disarms him. The hermit then flees for the front door, ignoring the group's warnings. As he runs to the door, Michonne impales him with her katana through the back to stop him from opening the door and letting the walkers in. Rick and Daryl Dixon then pick up the hermit's body, despite Oscar's reservations, throwing it to the walkers as a distraction and proceed to make their escape out the back door.

Trivia

  • It appeared as if the hermit was unaware of the apocalypse around him, despite it being over 10 months after the initial outbreak. Other indicators, such as the dead dog in his cabin and him threatening to call the police, suggest he could have either just been in denial or simply insane.
