Regina Monroe is a character first encountered in Issue 70 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is a resident living in the Alexandria Safe-Zone with her husband, Douglas Monroe, and her son, Spencer Monroe.
Regina was a seemingly calm, mature older woman, who apparently could also be hot-tempered at times, but not much is known about Regina's past history, aside from the facts that she was the wife of Douglas, and the mother of Spencer. Her marriage with Douglas was seemingly strained, and had apparently turned more politically motivated than anything else. This was easily observable by their apparent hidden despising of one another.
Regina continuously helped Douglas with running the Alexandria Safe-Zone; from helping with new members, as well as throwing parties. She was also very suspicious of Rick Grimes and his group of survivors wanting to join their community. Regina stated to Douglas that she trusted only him and Aaron in the zone, but she did not like seeing the new guests, and was afraid that they would try and overthrow Douglas's leadership. She was shown to have been be very fearful of Rick when Heath mentioned the thought that he might wind up being another Davidson.
According to Douglas, their marriage was a political one and that they had only remained together for the sake of their child, so as to give them parental stability. It was never revealed if she knew of her husband's fixation on Andrea, or any of the other women that he had placed into high positions. Despite what Douglas said about the two of them having a loveless marriage, Andrea believed it was just lies.
While deciding on what to do with Scott's body, Regina, Rick, Douglas, Heath, and the rest of the survivors who were present at the time were approached by an enraged Pete, who was intending to kill Rick for what he had done to him and his family. Regina attempted to step in on the conflict by trying to calm Pete down. This, however, turned out to be her fatal mistake; as Pete slashed her throat with his knife, mortally wounding her. Pete was killed shortly after by Rick, who had been granted Douglas's permission to do so. It was revealed after her death, to Aaron, that Regina did most likely know of Douglas's affairs, but kept quiet out of either loyalty or love, or maybe both. He regretted treating her badly and his numerous affairs that he had put her through.

Although Douglas and his wife Regina loved each other, at one point Regina became aware of how Douglas used his position as leader to proposition young women in the Safe-Zone, they stayed married to maintain appearances. They also seemed to disagree on whether or not to trust Rick's group. Douglas spiralled into a deep depression after her death, not only regretting his infidelity, but also beginning to question whether the community had been or ever would be safe, resulting in his suicide during the zombie herd's attack.
Regina and Spencer had a very good relationship. Although Spencer did sometimes complain about his mother's interest in his love life Regina tells him she wants him to be happy, showing that she cares how he feels. Also after Pete killed Regina, Spencer tackled Pete to the ground and watched as Rick shot him.
- Regina's death exposed a true spark of humility and regret in Douglas's heart. After her death, Douglas was filled with regret and sorrow for the mistakes he had made in the past, to the point of him contemplating suicide on several occasions.
