Nothing is known about Norris' life prior to or as the outbreak began. He may lived somewhere in or near Virginia.
Norris is among the Saviors to accompany Negan to the Alexandria Safe-Zone as they demand Rick's surrender. When negotiations fail, the Saviors launch grenades into Alexandria and they are ordered to find Carl alive. Norris and D.J. spot Carl through the smoke and chase after him. However, Carl is able to escape into the sewer in time thanks to a smoke grande, prompting Norris and D.J. to keep searching for him.
Norris and D.J. carry the coffin containing an undead Dean and follow Gary into Negan's conference room. They are ordered to drop off the coffin and leave. Later, Norris accompanies Simon to the junkyard where he participates in the massacre that leaves all of the Scavengers dead.
Norris is among the Saviors to open fire on the other Saviors planning to overthrow Negan. He also witnesses the fight between Negan and Simon inside the Sanctuary and Simon's subsequent death. He also helps capture Dwight, who was revealed by Laura to be a mole working with Rick and the survivors.
Norris is part of the Saviors' ambush on the Militia. Norris survives as the Saviors attempt to open fire with faulty ammunition manufactured by Eugene. Norris intercepts Rick as he chases after Negan and holds him at gunpoint. It is unknown what happened after this, if he survived, he likely surrendered to the Militia and returned to the Sanctuary.
