Texas, United States
Nothing is known about Hardy's life before or as the outbreak began. He may have lived in or near the state of Texas.
Hardy and his fellow bandits attack Morgan and hold him, and John Dorie, at gunpoint. However, Althea arrives in her armored truck and frees the captive men.
The next morning, Hardy and his comrades find where Althea, John, and Morgan were camping the night before. He surrounds Morgan and John and holds them hostage, but he is then smacked in the face by Morgan's stick, knocking him unconscious.
When the zombies break out of the locked trailer homes, he is eventually devoured as he lays unconscious.
