"Said it wasn't enough, said we weren't meeting... our end of the bargain...they still have Crystal. Said they'd keep her alive, return her to us if I delivered a message to you..."
—Ethan explaining the situation to Gregory.[src]

Ethan is a character first encountered in Issue 95 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is a male resident living in the Hilltop Colony.

Pre-Apocalypse

Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Ethan's life before or as the outbreak began.

Post-Apocalypse

Hilltop Colony

Nothing is known about Ethan's life at the Hilltop. It is hinted that he was in some form of relationship with Crystal.

A Larger World

Ethan was sent on a mission to see The Saviors and Negan, along with Crystal, Andy, and David. Ethan arrived back at the Hilltop alone, revealing that everyone except he, and possibly Crystal, were killed. He relayed a "message" to Gregory, and then stabbed him. Ethan tells if someone tries to stop him, Crystal will die. He is tackled by Rick Grimes and, during the struggle, was killed by his throat being cut by Rick. Everyone in the Hilltop Colony watched the murder in horror.

Death

Killed By

Upon returning from a failed mission, everyone was killed except for him and Crystal. Ethan relays a "message" to a fellow resident, Gregory, and then stabs him. Rick tackled Ethan and slit his throat with a knife, killing him.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Ethan has killed.

  • Possibly numerous counts of zombies.

Relationships

Gregory

Ethan and Gregory's relationship was never shown but it was assumed that it was stable before Ethan returned from his supply run. Because of Negan's threats towards Crystal, Ethan attacks Gregory and stabs him in the chest which ruined their relationship and caused Gregory to hate him.

Samuel

Samuel and Ethan may have been friends, as Samuel was seen to be distraught over his death, taking his anger out on Rick.

Crystal

Ethan and Crystal had a very good relationship. After Crystal was caught by Negan and he demanded that Ethan attack Gregory in order to get her back, Ethan does so, which results in his own death.
