- "NO! NOT MY FATHER! NOT MY FATHER!"
- —Arnold Greene, moments before his death.[src]
Arnold Greene is a character first encountered in Issue 10 of The Walking Dead and is Hershel Greene's second eldest son and the brother of Maggie, Billy, Shawn, Lacey, and the twin girls, Rachel and Susie.
Hardly anything is known about Arnold's life before the apocalypse other than that he moved to the family farm after the death of his mother. He didn't speak much before his death, and seemed to have a rather cool demeanor. Hershel described him as, "having a chip on his shoulder", however, Arnold was loyal and reliable to his father and siblings.
Arnold remained on the farm as the apocalypse began. Soon after the breakout, a group led by Rick Grimes arrived and Hershel allowed them to stay until the leader's son, Carl, was healed. Following the group's target practice session, and the capture of a roaming walker, Arnold and Lacey climbed from the back of the barn into the hayloft to distract the occupied barn "inhabitants". Following the accidental release of the walkers, Lacey became frightened as Arnold leaped to save their father. Before Hershel could be grabbed, Arnold rammed the walker with his shoulder, knocking it to the ground. He jumped on top of it, beating it with his fists in retaliating of his father's near-death. As he was doing so, his reanimated brother approached from behind and ripped open his neck with his teeth, ultimately killing him.
When the zombie-capturing demonstration went wrong, Arnold rushed to the barn to rescue Hershel before he was attacked and bitten by his older brother, Shawn, who was one of the zombies-occupants of the barn. He was then shot by his distraught father in order to prevent reanimation. Following his death, he was buried on a patch of land on the farm, and a funeral was held for all three Greene children lost in the accidental release.

You can help the Walking Dead Wiki by expanding it.
Not much about their relationship is revealed because of the short time Arnold was alive, but they had a normal father and son relationship. Arnold died saving Hershel's life which again shows that Arnold cared very deeply for his father.
Patricia and Arnold had a basic friendship, all though they were never seen interacting Patricia was seen grieving at his funeral and Arnold was also mentioned when Patricia was telling Hershel the people she missed.
