Yeah... And I'm still here. Aren't I? Listen to me, Maggie... Really, stop and listen to me. Look in my eyes, you'll see that what I'm telling you is one-hundred percent true. C'mon. You don't need to hide anything from me. I love you. I love you. Not that flirty girl I met at the farm house... Not that sex machine I lived with at the prison... You. Every flaw, every quirk... I love everything about you-- Everything that makes you... You. I love you, Maggie.
~ Glenn to Maggie in the ocmics.
Hershel, Maggie's father, was a great man. And he told me all I had to do was believe, and that's what I'm gonna do. Neither one of us should be alive right now. She got out, so you're gonna help me find her.
~ Glenn to Tara Chambler about Maggie Greene.
But I'd rather make the wrong call and know, than make the right call and not.
~ Glenn to Lee in Telltale's The Walking Dead.

Glenn is a fictional character and a major protagonist in The Walking Dead franchise, appearing in all other adaptations of the series. He was once a pizza delivery boy who survived the start of the outbreak, where he becomes a member of Rick Grimes' group trying to survive against the undead and the living. Glenn is capable of surviving in the new world due to his resourcefulness and knowledge, making him a supply runner in many of his appearances in the franchise.

He was created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore, and first appeared in the comics' second issue.

Glenn Rhee was a main character and a survivor in AMC's The Walking Dead. He served as one of the main protagonists from Season 1 to Season 7. He is commonly the main supply runner for the group.

Although his voice is first heard over the radio in a tank in the series premiere "Days Gone Bye", Glenn makes his first appearance physically in the next episode "Guts" and helps Rick Grimes safely escape the walkers on the street and meet up with his group. Eventually, after the group stays on the Greene Farm, Glenn marries Hershel's daughter, Maggie Greene. He was a vital and trustworthy member of the group and had escaped death numerous times in the series, until he and the group meet the villainous and extremely dangerous Negan, who ruthlessly and sadistically executes both Glenn and Abraham Ford by bashing their heads in with his baseball bat "Lucille".

He was portrayed by Steven Yeun, who voices Invincible in the titular Amazon animated series, and also voiced Keith in Voltron: Legendary Defender, Nathan Park from Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters, Wan from The Legend of Korra, Bo from The Star, Little Cato from Final Space and Speckle from Tuca & Bertie.

Overview

Glenn is an American male of Korean descent in his early 20's with black hair and a light complexion.

Glenn was bright, loyal, resourceful, and quick on his feet. Keenly aware of the extreme dangers in which he places himself for the sake of the group, his youth made him willing to take the risk. Glenn thought on his feet and shows great compassion and humanity. Despite all of the horrors he has experienced, he maintained a youthful enthusiasm for life and its unexpected pleasures. He was an integral part of the group, showing surprising depth and emotion when experiencing even the most devastating tragedies.

While on the farm, he begins a relationship with Maggie Greene. Over the course of the latter half of season two and the third season, he has become very close and loving towards her, doing whatever is necessary to keep her safe. He is trustworthy and loyal, as seen in the episode "When the Dead Come Knocking." When Glenn and Maggie are captured by the Governor, he is brutally interrogated by Merle but refuses to reveal where the rest of Rick's group have set up camp.

Glenn's love for Maggie and his close bond with her father, Hershel Greene, leads Glenn to become less of the group canary in the coal mine and more of his own voice. Upon Hershel's death, Glenn pledges to take over his role as conscience and hope, which involves decisions like protecting Tara Chambler (in spite of her ties to the Governor) and encouraging his leader, Rick Grimes, to spare the residents of Terminus. However, after discovering that Eugene Porter is lying about Washington, D.C. and discovering that Maggie's sister Beth is alive, only to see her dead in the same day, Glenn becomes noticeably colder and less trusting. He says that he himself would have killed Dawn Lerner, who accidentally killed Beth, and that he would not have stopped to help the man trapped in the storage container at Terminus, whom he had convinced Rick to rescue. Despite having become rather distant, Glenn is still unable to kill another living person, as seen when he plots to kill Nicholas for Noah's death and for trying to kill him. He is unable to go through with it, demonstrating that he has not completely gone cold.

Glenn has shown to feel really uncomfortable with killing living people, when he stabs a member of the Saviors and then starts to cry, as well as being shocked at the sight of the Saviors that him and Heath massacred in self defence. However, while he was quite uncomfortable with killing living people, he was willing to do that to protect his community, Maggie and his unborn child.

In his final moments, Glenn was only concerned with Maggie's welfare, showing how devoted he was to his wife. His final words were directed to her "Maggie I'll - I'll find you", and indicated that he would always love her, even after death.

Biography

Background

Glenn Rhee was born in the mid-1980s to unnamed parents who immigrated from Korea, and was raised by them alongside his sisters in Michigan. He would go to graduate from an unnamed school and became a pizza delivery boy, but found himself stuck in his early twenties due to his job. When the outbreak started, Glenn was saved by Theodore "T-Dog" Douglas, and the two came across a group of survivors in Atlanta. Due to his knowledge of the layout of the city, Glenn became the group's supply runner.

The Walking Dead

Season One

While going on a supply run, Glenn came across a survivor named Rick Grimes who was trapped in a tank while the walkers were eating his horse. Glenn spoke to Rick on the radio inside the tank, and told him to make a run for it since the walkers were focus on consuming the horse, saving his life. Returning to the group with Rick, Glenn assists Grimes in their plan to distract the walkers by driving a car out of the city to reunite with Shane's group. Returning to the site, Glenn is asked by Rick to help him go back to the city to find Merle Dixon, Daryl's brother who was handcuffed to a roof by Rick for his racism against T-Dog. Going into the city with Rick and Daryl, the group find only Merle's hand and a hacksaw, indicating that Dixon escaped from being eaten by walkers.

Glenn The Comic Version.png
Glenn is a main character and a survivor first encountered in Issue 2 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and a member of the original Atlanta survivor group, and a civilian who had survived the mysterious undead apocalypse that has swept the planet. After leaving Atlanta, he met Maggie Greene and eventually married her. The couple adopted Sophia after her mother's death.

Characteristics and Role

From his introduction, Glenn had proven over the course of the series his importance to the group's survival. His initiative to put himself in danger in Atlanta to get supplies was a vital necessity for the group. His jack-of-all-trades knowledge had proven useful several times, such as being able to hot-wire a car and siphon petrol. His youth and somewhat natural optimistic, humorous attitude frequently kept the survivor group's spirits up, and his loyalty to Rick and the group made him one of Rick's closest and dependable allies. He was shown always willing to do what was necessary to keep everyone together; even if it put himself in danger.

Glenn had more obvious weaknesses despite his strengths. He often displayed a tendency to act before thinking, such as when he risked his life carelessly to confront the obviously hostile Bruce who knew who he was, and when he crashed the car into the Prison in panic, endangering himself and everyone to save Maggie. His tendency to panic was also highlighted when under extreme pressure, such as when The Governor captured the trio and beat him down without any resistance. He was disabled by pure shock and fear, and only snapped out of it once Martinez saved him.

Glenn was also not as physically able or as emotionally hardened as other members of his group, and often left the situations which needed violence, such as killing off the Hunters and Scavengers, to other members of the group. He notably never killed another living human in the series.

His athleticism and agility was utilized throughout the series, and when the group began living in the Alexandria Safe-Zone, Glenn became an ideal and effective supply runner because of these traits.

Overall, Glenn's knowledge in wiring vehicles, his speed and general usefulness enabled him to survive the countless dangers of the undead, the Woodbury psychopaths and the almost lethal gunshot wounds from both Bruce and The Hunters, but, his eventual fate was ultimately out of his hands.
