Eduardo is a character first encountered in Issue 95 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is a resident living in the Hilltop Colony. He is currently in a relationship with another Hilltop survivor named Mandy.
Nothing yet has been revealed about Eduardo's life before or as the outbreak began. It is possible that he lived in or near Hilltop.
Eduardo's job is to guard the Hilltop's main gate and alert the colony if danger arises that him and his partner, Kal, can't handle. Eduardo and Kal are seen using spears as their weapons as the colony has run out of bullets.
Eduardo was first encountered standing on the Hilltop Colony wall. Eduardo was having a discussion with another Hilltop survivor, Kal, about Eduardo's girlfriend, Mandy. Kal hears someone on the other side of the wall and tells Eduardo to be quiet. Kal and Eduardo both pick up spears and aim them, but Paul Monroe orders them to stand down. Kal then argues with Paul to disarm Rick and his group or he won't open the gate, but Paul reminds Kal of his position of being in charge of who enters Hilltop. The gate is opened and Rick, Paul, Andrea, Glenn, Michonne, and Carl enter Hilltop.
Eduardo makes another appearance in Issue 101, in which him and Kal are seen killing a zombie with a spearhead. Kal informs him that Earl Sutton, a man who makes weapons for all the guards at Hilltop, had stopped production and that Eduardo would have to retrieve his own. Eduardo then complains and thinks that there might be zombies in the trees, but his speech is stopped short by Rick and others approaching the Hilltop. Kal and him proceed to let Rick and the others in.
In Issue 111, Eduardo tries to board the bus to travel to The Kingdom, but is stopped by Paul. He tries to volunteer and join Paul's group to fight The Saviors, however, Paul tells him that he is too young to join and instead tasks him to stay and guard the Hilltop.
Eduardo is next seen after Rick's group moves to the Hilltop in the aftermath of the Savior attack on the Safe-Zone. While he and Kal are standing watch on the wall, Negan and the Saviors make their presence known. Negan demands to speak to Rick, and when Kal refuses, Eduardo watches as his friend is shot in the head by a Savior. Negan once again screams for Rick to come out, and Eduardo shouts that he doesn't know who Negan's talking about. This angers Negan, and he commences his attack on the Hilltop.
This list shows the victims Eduardo has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies.
Kal and Eduardo are seen standing guard together twice. They discussed their private life together which indicates they might have been close. In Issue 101, Kal seems to be some sort of mentor over Eduardo. Eduardo is upset when he isn't allowed to travel to the Kingdom with Kal.
Eduardo and Mandy are in a relationship. It is unknown if Mandy and Eduardo were together before the apocalypse. Mandy and Eduardo obviously love each other, but have had recent arguments.
