- —Shorty yelling that he captured Nick.[src]
Shorty is a member of Tommy's group of home invaders who attempted to take the peach orchard home away from the Blake family and Nick Parsons. He is described as having a marine jarhead haircut, being tall, skinny, young, and covered in pimples.
Nothing is known about Shorty's life before or as the outbreak began. It is possible that he was friends with Tommy and the rest of his group before the outbreak began.
The Peach Orchard
Having followed Philip Blake's group from fifty miles outside of Atlanta, Shorty under orders from his leader Tommy decided to try and take The Peach Orchard home away from Philip's group after doing a few days of scouting and recon on the house with Blake's group inside. Shorty is then ordered to find Nick Parsons and hold him hostage with a large Bowie knife while a deal is struck between Tommy and Philip. After the deal was made that would allow Philip and his group to leave unharmed, Tommy orders his men in a double cross to hunt Blake's group down and kill them all. During the hunting Brian Blake sees Shorty's corpse with half of his head blown off by gun fire.
After Tommy and his gang of home invaders kicked the Blake Family and Nick Parsons out of the Peach Villa, Philip and Nick returned to kill Tommy, and the rest of the gang. It is unknown is he was either killed by Nick or Philip.
