"Why send our best men and our best horses? Ezekiel died for these assholes, his kingdom is in disarray. The first time they check on us is to ask for help? Fuck them."
—Zachary to William about Rick.[src]

Zachary is a character first encountered in Issue 157 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is a member of the Kingdom and an uncertain ally of Rick Grimes. Having high respect for their former leader Ezekiel, Zachary now acts as an adviser to de-factor leader William, whose choices he is wary about in regards to helping the other communities.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Zachary's life prior to or as the outbreak began.


The Whisperer War

Zachary is seen arguing with William about who should lead to Kingdom. He notes that Rick didn't help the Kingdom when they needed help the most and that he is sending Michonne; "the person who broke Ezekiel's heart". He says they shouldn't send reinforcements to Alexandria or let Michonne lead, but that William should lead himself. He says that Ezekiel wouldn't have bent to Alexandria, stirring William to rethink the situation.

Zachary is then shown to be an adviser to William. The de-facto leader relieves another guard after he gives status on patrols. Zachary asks what the point is when all their best troops have been sent out to help the militia, noting they are "practically defenseless". William, irritated, tells Zachary to leave, threatening to send him out to fight. As he leaves, Zachary states William will regret his decisions, though he denies that he will. William attacks and threatens Zachary saying he will do anything to keep the Kingdom safe including killing him.
