Name: Daryl Dixon
Played By: Norman Reedus
Brother: Merle Dixon, deceased
Alive, Dead, or Walker: Alive
Though not featured in the original Walking Dead comics, Daryl quickly became a fan favorite on the show, known as Merle’s slightly nicer, sexier, badass brother. Daryl has struggled with his allegiance to Rick (to be fair, he did leave his brother handcuffed to a roof) but he has proven to be a valuable asset to Team Prison.
After Shane’s death, Daryl assumed the role of Rick’s right-hand man and has proven his worth thanks to his excellent hunting skills and proficiency in killing walkers with his trusty bow and arrow.
We love Daryl Dixon. In fact, we think he's one of TV's most compelling characters right now!
