Callaway is a member of the U.S. Military before the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. At some point after the outbreak, Callaway became infected.


Location Unknown

Very little is known about Callaway's life before or as the outbreak began. He earned a Parachutist Badge and held the rank Sergeant Major in the U.S. Army. 


During the initial outbreak, Callaway was in King County, likely assisting his fellow soldiers and FEMA in controlling the infection. Callaway was bitten on the neck and later reanimated into a zombie.
