A major character and survivor of the outbreak in The Walking Dead television series, Hershel Greene is much older than most, well into his 70’s. Before the apocalypse, he was a farm owner that settled for many years in Georgia. He has two daughters, Beth and Maggie. A recovering alcoholic, he was married twice, his second wife would bring a son from a previous marriage onto the farm. He is stubborn and holds fast to his beliefs and personal code of conduct.
He loves his family, his daughters in particular and will abandon any strict moral code, to protect them. He is a diplomatic and a confident speaker, often having to talk down other survivors and prevent them from acting rashly. He earns a place as an advisor to Rick Grimes because of this skill. He is eventually caught and decapitated by The Governor during a showdown at the prison within sight of his two daughters Maggie and Beth.
