The Otto Family is a family of ranchers and amateur survivalists living in Broke Jaw Ranch, their family ranch which is located near San Diego, California, and close to the American-Mexican Border. The family's patriarch, Jeremiah Otto appeared in the Season 2b episode Wrath when Ofelia Salazar crossed into the U.S. The rest of the family is set to appear in Season 3.


Long before the outbreak, the family banded together with other like minded individuals to set up a survivalist organisation, which expects and prepares to survive through the fall of the democratic form of government and the rule of law. They used the Otto family ranch Broke Jaw Ranch as their headquarter.
