Nothing is known of Nell's life before or after the outbreak began except that she has a son. She and her son may also have lived near the Hilltop area.
Sometime during the outbreak, she and her son stayed at the Hilltop Colony for safety from the roamers. Like many people in the colony, they had to live in the trailers due to there being not enough room in the mansion. During the first Savior attack on the Hilltop, the trailer that she and her son lived in was almost hit by one of the Saviors' vehicles. Because of this, she and her son stayed in their trailer, refusing to leave in case of another Savior attack on the colony.
This list shows the victims Nell has killed:
