"Goddam herds are like amoebas, growing, separating, splitting off into multiple herds. Can't get a goddamn break with these things. Getting worse every day."
—Ben about the herds.[src]

Ben Buchholz was a Woodbury soldier. He was a machine gun operator during the prison assault.


Pine Mountain

Almost nothing is known about Ben's life before the outbreak or as the outbreak began. He lost his whole family a year before the prison assault in a swarm outside F.D. Roosevelt State Park, and seems to have a trauma about it. He is also described to be "pouchy-eyed man" from Pine Mountain.


Woodbury, Georgia

Ben participates in the attack on the prison, as a machine gun operator. After the fall of the prison, Ben and a small group of surviving soldiers hole up in the prison to regroup, Ben along with Lilly and Matthew barricade the door. As they count their ammo Ben has eleven 115-grain 9mm rounds for his Glock 19. Later on during the night, Ben comes out half asleep when Gloria sees the bite on Austin's wrist. Ben goes with his knifes along with Lilly and Matthew to search the corridor. The next day when Lilly leads the survivors out of the prison. They are led safely back to Woodbury by Lilly Caul, who becomes the new leader of the town.


After the Church group try to take their lives in a suicide pact, part of their plan was to blow the gates of Woodbury which led a superherd into Woodbury. After the walkers get into Woodbury, it is assumed that he was devoured by walkers along with the other residents of Woodbury.
