Main article: Jeremiah James Garlitz (Novel Series)

Jeremiah James Garlitz was a preacher that was featured in the novels Descent and Invasion. He is shown to be able to mask his personality as a kind and nice man but changes into something much worse.

Jeremiah seems to be skilled at fighting and controlling walkers, and he is shown to be the leader of a suicide cult. In his cult they try to put other survivors "out of mercy" even if they are healthy and refuse to die.
