Almost nothing is known about Eddie's life before or as the outbreak began, except that he was from Ireland. He was in the Atlanta airport terminal with his wife Clara during the early stages of the global outbreak. There, he and Clara were waiting to catch a flight to Puerto Vallarta for their honeymoon when their flight was cancelled. They were held in the terminal until zombies most likely broke in the terminal.
Eddie is found as a zombie, with his head in a bag at Clara's camp. Clara was planning on feeding Rick to Eddie's reanimated head, but she failed and later committed suicide asking Rick to let her reanimate and be like Eddie.
This list shows the victims Eddie has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies.
- An Unknown Cause (Alive)
It is not known how Eddie was killed, but it is known that it happened months after the apocalypse. Following Eddie's death, Clara cut off his reanimated head and kept it with her wherever she went.
Next to nothing is known about Eddie's relationship with Clara, but since they were married, it can be assumed they loved each other very much. Clara's love for her husband is also demonstrated by the fact that she kept his undead head fed, unable to bring herself to put him down.
- "30 Days Without An Accident" (Zombified)
- It was revealed during a Talking Dead segment that the producers decided not to show Eddie (his head) to allow the audience to imagine what the grotesque zombie head would look like.
