"He's gonna see right through this stunt."
—Tommy Zorn discussing the plan with the other guardsmen.[src]

Tommy Zorn is a character that appears in The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury. He is described as having a malnourished body covered with a significant skin rash.


Location Unknown

Almost nothing is known about Tommy's life prior to or as the outbreak began. He was the delivery clerk for the Army National Guard station just outside of Woodbury.


Woodbury, Georgia

Tommy, along with Trey Barker, Stinson, and Manning are being kept prisoner below the racetrack. When Barker comes up with a plan to escape, Manning doesn't agree with it and thinks it will fail. The plan is that one of the prisoners will pretend to be dead so Brian will come in to take them. When he enters they will attack him. Tommy, along with Stinson also disagree and say it is too dangerous. He tells Barker that he doesn't want to end up like Gene Gavin, Johnson, or Greely. Barker eventually talks them into it and Stinson agrees to play dead.

Later, Brian Blake and Bob Stookey go down to the race track to see the prisoners. Brian says that there were originally seven of them, but there is only four left now. He also states that these are the people he has been feeding Penny Blake. When they arrive they see Stinson on the floor bleeding and slowly moving. Brian, believing he has turned goes in to put him down. When he enters, Barker jumps on his back and attacks him, ripping his chains off the wall in the process. Tommy and the others try to escape their bounds during this time but fail. After a short struggle, Brian grabs his gun and unloads a clip into Barker's skull. He then shoots six shots above Stinson's head in order to scare him. He walks over to him and puts the barrel of his gun into his mouth but doesn't shoot. He leaves, and Bob takes Barker's body to the infirmary for "preparation". Tommy later fights in the arena, wearing makeshift shoulder pads and shin guards. He walks into the arena holding a large machete and trembles with latent madness. Immediately when the fight begins he pounces at Manning and grazes the head of his axe, causing Manning him to careen backward in the mud. At some point, both fighters are killed in the fight and later chopped into pieces.


Killed By

Tommy was killed by his wounds in the arena, he was then chopped up and fed to the captive walkers in Woodbury.
