Nothing is known about Benjamin's life prior to the outbreak, other than he presumably resided somewhere near the greater Washington D.C. area. He also lived with his father and younger brother, Henry.
As Morgan shows Carol around the Kingdom, Benjamin gives Morgan a friendly wave as he leads his brother around on a horse in an enclosure. Later, Benjamin is present for the feral pig hunt in the city outskirts with Morgan, Ezekiel, Dianne, Richard, Alvaro, and Jerry. After the pigs are herded, several zombies approach the area. Benjamin is prompted by Ezekiel to take out one of the zombies as he was trained to, but is unsuccessful. With the zombie threat neutralized, the group heads back to the Kingdom.
As per Ezekiel's request, Morgan begins to train Benjamin in aikido and takes him under his wing, to help train him to be a better fighter and survivor, especially as Ezekiel wants Benjamin in his court of advisors. After the training session in the gazaebo, Benjamin notices a book in Morgan's bag and asks to read it, since he had read all of the available books in the Kingdom, including a manual to repair HVAC units. At dinner, Benjamin allows Henry to leave early for the movies but he stays behind with Morgan to chat, where he explains about his father and how he died when clearing a building of zombies with other members of the Kingdom. Benjamin is also present at the Savior food drop off, where his reaction to the Saviors and overall training are tested by Ezekiel. After the exchange, he heads home to the Kingdom with his fellow soldiers.
Benjamin attends to King Ezekiel when he grants Rick Grimes and Paul Rovia an audience. He later runs into Carol in the woods while practicing his walker-fighting skills. She gives him advice on staying quiet and tells him to go home. Ezekiel puts Henry, Benjamin’s younger brother, down to bed. Benjamin urges Ezekiel to help Rick’s group fight against the Saviors. Ezekiel thanks him for his counsel.
Benjamin is at the Saviors exchange with Ezekiel and the rest of his court, waiting for Gavin and his band of men to arrive. When Jared lunges at Richard, Morgan strikes him with his staff. Jared seizes the staff and hits Morgan with it, so Benjamin strikes Jared and sends him to the floor, before resisting.The Saviors finally leave. Afterwards, he returns to the Kingdom with the others. Benjamin tells Ezekiel he did good, but he tells him he still needs to improve.
