Nothing is know about Bernie's life before the outbreak began.
Bernie was a part of Magna's group of survivors travelling through the D.C. area. When Paul Monroe, along with the rest of the Alexandria herd-crew are steering a herd away from The Kingdom, they come across his group. The herd began to surround the group and, despite Jesus' best efforts, Bernie was unable to escape the large group of zombies that surrounded them.
Bernie was killed when a horde of zombies approached the group and surrounded them, resulting in him being grabbed and eaten alive by multiple zombies.
This list shows the victims that Bernie has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies.
It is possible Bernie and Magna had a good friendship. Magna shouted out Bernie's name in shock as she saw him getting devoured by the walkers.
