"Well, ya'll better get your shit together, the preacher said he wanted to see you two the minute you got back."
—Rory to Stephen and Reese.[src]

Rory Thorndyke is a character who first appears in The Walking Dead: Invasion.  He is described as a former bricklayer from Augusta with tree-trunk arms emblazoned with naval tattoos and hard gristly muscles, garbed in a stained wifebeater T-shirt.



Not much is known about Rory's life before or as the outbreak began. All that is known is that he was a bricklayer and had a daughter named Melissa.


Jasper, Florida

He is seen part of Patrick Murphy's convoy, along with his daughter Melissa and unnamed wife.


Like a lot of others, Rory leaves the camp with his daughter after the arrival of Reverend Garlitz, main reason being him torturing Scorpion members.
