"Don't be. Mikey and I will be okay. We'll get by, we've been getting by ever since you got us to Alexandria. You did that. You made us survive. You saved us, Nicholas."
—Paula's last words to her dying husband, Nicholas.[src]

Paula is a character first encountered in Issue 99 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is a resident living in the Alexandria Safe-Zone. Paula is the wife of Nicholas and mother of Mikey.


Location Unknown

Almost nothing is known about Paula's life before or as the outbreak began, apart from that she has a husband, Nicholas, and a son, Mikey. It's possible that she lived in or near Alexandria before the outbreak. 


Life Among Them

Paula has been in "hiding" for a long time, and she has only been mentioned by Peter Anderson.

We Find Ourselves

In Issue 85, she's possibly seen next to Nicholas. In Issue 99, Paula was seen again at Gabriel's church with her husband, Nicholas, and son, Mikey. Paula, Nicholas, and Mikey were at Abraham's funeral.

March To War

After the skirmish with The Saviors outside the safe-zone, Paula is seen with her son and injured husband. The following day, her family listens to Rick's plea before the battle.

All Out War - Part Two

After the destruction of Alexandria, Paula and her family retreated to the Hilltop. Eventually, Nicholas is wounded by a Savior with an infected machete. She sits beside him on his death bed and assures him that she and Mikey will be fine, and they have survived for so long because of him.

A New Beginning

Paula is seen in the main hall, waiting for Rick. She tells him the great condition in which the tree orchard is in.



Paula and Nicholas are married, with a child. Even though they love each other deeply, they are hardly seen together, and Paula is only seen on few occasions. In Issue 90, Nicholas confronts Rick and thanks him for not saving his family, Nicholas states he went home, saw his family and tells Rick he loves them deeply. The only confirmed time the two are seen together is at Abraham's funeral in Issue 99 with their child, Mikey, between them.


Mikey is Paula's son. The two never interact through basic dialogue, but, it is believed that they have a basic mother/son relationship.
