- —Aaron to Daryl about Buttons.[src]
Nothing is known about Buttons' life before or after the outbreak started except that he resided in the area surrounding the Alexandria Safe-Zone.
While Daryl and Aaron are out hunting, they come across Buttons. Aaron explains that he was spotted running past the town gate by a child, who named him Buttons. Since then, he has been roaming the area. While Aaron and Daryl chase after him, they are attacked by walkers. Buttons is swarmed by walkers and killed before he can be saved. Aaron then shoots the horse in the head to end his suffering due to his mortal wounds caused by the walkers.
After becoming spooked by walkers in a field when Daryl tries to tie Buttons up to take back to Alexandria, Buttons takes off and is eventually discovered by Aaron and Daryl, but becomes swarmed by walkers and is mauled. After the walkers are all killed, Buttons is left mortally wounded and is heard moaning, barely clinging to life. Aaron shoots Buttons in the head to end his suffering.
