"I don't want to leave him, in case he wakes up."
—Noris to Hershel Greene regarding his sick son[src]

Noris is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is one of the newcomers in the prison along with his son.


Location Unknown

Almost nothing is known about Noris' life before or as the outbreak began, except that he has had a son.


Season 4


Noris is among the prison residents to escape Cell Block D during the zombie attack.


Noris joined his teenage son in quarantine in Cell Block A a short time after he entered with a group of other prison residents. When Hershel Greene checks on the survivors, he asks Noris if his son is okay. When Hershel leaves the cell and is attacked by a zombified woman, Noris comes to Hershel's rescue with a handgun, only to get his arm bitten by his zombified son. In panic, he fires in random directions and his crossfire accidentally hits a woman in the chest. His son then starts biting into the back of his neck, subsequently leading to Noris' death.

Minutes later, he reanimates and attacks Hershel's daughter Maggie, who puts him down with a shot under the chin.


Killed By

When the sick began reanimating in Cell Block A, Noris assisted Hershel, who was pinned down by a walker. Behind Noris's back, his son reanimated and devoured him. In the process of being devoured, he fired his .38 Smith & Wesson Model 36 revolver in random directions, which accidentally hits a survivor.

While Maggie was running to find Hershel, she stumbled upon the zombified Noris who she then shot under the chin with her 9mm Walther P99 pistol.
