|“||He sent Merle to kill me. Would have sent him to kill you, too, if you had come with me. But you didn’t, did you? Hm-mmm. You chose a warm bed over a friend. That’s why I went back to Woodbury, exposed him for what he is, I knew that it would hurt you.||„|

Michonne Hawthorne is a main character of The Walking Dead TV series. Michonne is a woman who is skilled with a sword who has a dark and mysterious past. After meeting Andrea, Michonne started to realize there was more to life than killing walkers and living in the shadows.
Several days after arriving at the prison, Michonne started to settle in and became a loyal member of the group.
After Andrea’s death, Michonne sought vengeance for her friend, and searched for several months for her killer, The Governor.
Eventually, she and Hershel Greene were kidnapped by the Governor in an attempt to take the prison for himself. After he had killed Hershel, Michonne escaped and eventually found The Governor attempting to kill Rick Grimes, but she stopped him by stabbing him through the heart.
During the years in Alexandria, Michonne was seen as a possible leader figures by the others, and later became one of the founding leaders. During these years, she and Rick became lovers, and she conceived a child with him after the war with The Saviors.
After Rick's apparent death, Michonne gave birth to his son, RJ, and became the mother figure to Judith Grimes, Rick’s daughter with Lori. During these years, she had no choice but to become the leader of Alexandria, and eventually led the war to end the Whisperers.

Michonne is a slim built African-American woman with long black braided hair in her early 30s. Michonne can nearly always be seen wearing a brown vest and leggings. She also has a cloak similar to her comics counterpart.
Michonne tends to work alone and quietly and keeps much of her past secret, even towards Andrea, but still fights for the survivors defense as strongly as the other active defenders. Michonne said that she "trusts her gut" when it comes to other survivors. After the loss of her boyfriend, she suffered from hallucinations in which she would talk to him. It was revealed that she likes art and/or sculptures as she looted a cat sculpture and claimed that was "Too damn gorgeous" to leave behind.

Characteristics and Role
Michonne tends to work alone and quietly, but, still fights for the survivors defense as strongly as the other active defenders. She is frequently referred to, and perceived by the other characters as one of the strongest members of the survivors, and frequently participates in the violent, but, necessary actions of the group, such as the conflict against The Governor and his henchmen. Her participation in the torture and slaughter of The Hunters showed a much more detached side of her than ever before. She admits in her imaginary conversations with her boyfriend that she cares for the group, showing that some humanity remains despite her torturous experiences. Michonne has shown from her break-down after torturing The Governor that she is still capable of vulnerability.
Despite her experiences, Michonne has proven her worth to the group; not only in her practical skills with her katana, but, her constant participation in moving the survivors forward and keeping the group safe. She is the only survivor arriving Post-Prison and before Woodbury. She remains a vital member of the survivors.
- Robert Kirkman mentioned in the Letter Hacks of Issue 49 Michonne is the strongest character in the comic book.
- Before the apocalypse, it has been confirmed Michonne didn't know any martial arts.
- Although she has been seen as a fairly good shot with a gun, Michonne rarely uses one, preferring to almost exclusively use her sword.
- This is shown to be almost the exact opposite as her TV series counterpart, who is not adept with firearms at all.
- Michonne, along with Rick Grimes, Andrea, Abraham Ford, the Governor, and Negan have killed the most named characters either as a zombie or as a living person.
- In Issue 36, Robert Kirkman wrote of Michonne's rape and revenge in a letter as follows:
- "It was always my plan to NOT show what happened to Michonne--to show the "closed door"...But then when it came time for HER revenge--I wanted to show every single action taken against The Governor. (aside from a few done while he was passed out)
- "The idea is that you never SEE the evil person's actions...but when the good person does their thing--you see just how evil they can be. It makes you question the character-and hopefully yourself--especially if you're cheering them on the whole way."
