Phoenix served as the capital of Arizona, and was the largest city in the state with over 1.4 million people.
During the onset of the global zombie outbreak, Phoenix was presumably engulfed by riots, panic, and the undead. The University of Phoenix Stadium was set as a safe zone for refugees fleeing the city. As seen from aboard TruWest Airlines Flight 462 , Phoenix's power grid failed, causing a citywide blackout. Among the areas affected by the power outage was the city's airport, forcing many flights, including Flight 462, to divert to alternate locations. Suburbs surrounding Phoenix were also affected by the power outage such as Glendale, Scottsdale, Mesa, and Surprise. Phoenix's ultimate fate is unknown, though it can be assumed that it was fire bombed by napalm and eventually overrun by walkers.
