Debuting in season 3 and lasting until season 5, Tyreese was a much-loved character who would prevent any bloodshed if possible. He was an ex-NFL player which showed as he often used his brute strength and hardiness to get through tough situations.

Abraham has only been in the series since season 5, he’s managed to rack up 33 kills which has put him in the #9 spot. He had a wife and a son who were killed by walkers while fleeing, he had a primary mission to protect a scientist who lied that he had a cure. After all of this, he has pretty much lost all hope and is just a broken shell of a man. He’s desperately seeking for a purpose, something to aim for, a mission.
