- "I miss my big brother, Shawn. He was so annoying and overprotective..."
- —Beth remembering her deceased brother[src]
Shawn Greene is Hershel's step-son, Maggie's step-brother, and Beth's half-brother. His zombified incarnation was kept in the Greene family barn along with several other zombies including his mother, Annette.
Little is known about Shawn's life before or as the outbreak began. Shawn likely moved onto the farm following Annette's marriage to Hershel. Shawn was just a newborn child when he moved to the Greene Family Farm. His biological father is likely to have been out of the picture, since Shawn has his step-father's last name.
Sometime after the initial outbreak, Shawn was killed by walkers. Before his initial reanimation, however, Hershel or Otis placed him inside of the barn, along with his mother, Annette.
Hershel mentions that he lost both his son, Shawn, and his wife, Annette, during the outbreak.
Maggie relates her sadness over Otis's death to her sadness over the deaths of Shawn and Annette. We later see pictures of him and Annette hung on the refrigerator in the farmhouse.
Shawn and Annette are revealed by Hershel to be zombies in the barn. Maggie brought up his name, along with those of Annette and some of their neighbors, to Glenn when they were gathering supplies at Steve's Pharmacy.
Maggie mentions Shawn while she tells a story of her family to Andrea while Beth is still in a catatonic state.
Shawn is mentioned by Beth during a conversation with Daryl, where she describes him as being an annoying but protective older brother.
- Zombies (Alive)
- Atlanta Survivors (Zombified)
Shawn and his mother, Annette, were both bitten and infected by walkers when they arrived back at the farm. Over a period of time, he becomes a walker and is taken to the barn.
After Shane forces the barn open, the walkers inside proceed to exit. Systematically, they are shot and killed by the group of Atlanta Survivors. It is unclear which survivor provided the shot that extinguished the zombie Shawn. However, due to the fact his head-shot was executed by one a single bullet from handguns rather than the scatter-rounds from the shotguns, it was either Shane, Andrea, or T-Dog.
This list shows the victims Shawn has killed:
- Possibly a few of zombies.
Hershel is Shawn's father, their relationship is only shown in the Walking Dead Video Game.
It is assumed that Shawn and Annette had a stable relationship since they were mother and son.
- "I miss my big brother Shawn... He was so annoying and overprotective."
- —Beth remembering Shawn.[src]
Beth and Shawn had a loving relationship. She cared for her brother since when he was killed in the barn shootout, she was crying but did not run to her brother's corpse. Shawn was also Beth's only "playmate" when Maggie went to college. Beth also mentioned that Shawn was very protective of her.
It is assumed Shawn and Patricia would have got along, assuming the two worked on the farm together and being neighbors.
- In the TV Series, Shawn is Hershel's stepson. However, in the Comic Series, he is Hershel's biological son.
