The son of Lori and Rick Grimes, Carl is deeply saddened when his father, a deputy sheriff, is injured in the line of duty and lapses into a coma. Unfortunately, the situation becomes exponentially worse when, as dad sleeps, undead walkers take over the town and, seemingly, all surrounding areas. In the chaos, Carl flees with Lori and Shane, his fathers partner and best friend. They all believe Rick to be dead, which turns out not to be true and Carl is soon reunited with his father. All is not well, however, as Carl is growing into his own as an adolescent, an already difficult process made considerably more complicated in the new post-apocalyptic reality. Carl is often at odds with mother and father and, far too frequently for the entire group, ventures out on his own into dangerous situations.

Lori and Rick try desperately to shield Carl from the horrors of a world in which humans are hunted as food by unknowing monsters, but its an almost impossible task. The result is that Carl becomes more and more hardened, growing up at an accelerated rate and increasingly anxious to be one of the adults i.e. armed and tacitly licensed to kill walkers.
