Carl Grimes is the first-born child of Rick and Lori Grimes. After the outbreak began, he met and became friends with Carol and Ed Peletier‘s daughter, Sophia. When she went missing after the highway herd scares her off, he became intensely worried about her. While living in the prison, his mother gave birth to his baby sister/half-sister, which he later names Judith after one of his third grade teachers, Judith Mueller. In order to prevent Lori’s reanimation, Carl shot her in the head.


Carl’s face is  lightly freckled, and he has blue eyes like his father’s. Over the course of the show, he grows both mentally and physically. He’s shy, and generally only talks with his parents and the people in the group that he is comfortable talking with. Sometimes, he is disobedient, but does have shame and guilt whenever he has done something that hurts the group. After Otis shoots him accidentally, he becomes more negative as well as more independent. As this goes on, he insults Carol, exposing is pessimistic and rude side. Being curious by nature, he often gets into trouble.

By Season 3, Carl becomes better in combat and loses most of his sense of emotion. (though he does continue to have some morals and feels guilt and shame). Even despite his maturity, he does remain childish, for example, being shy, not speaking in front of the group, and having a crush on Beth Greene.
