Zombified Garnett

Charles Garnett is a main character and survivor of Z Nation, first encountered in "Puppies and Kittens".

He was a survivor of the initial zombie apocalypse, and a main character in Z Nation. Living in Camp Blue Sky until meeting Hammond and Murphy. He was Mark Hammond's second in command in the effort to bring Murphy to the west coast, but assumed a leadership role after Hammond's death. He was the leader of the Westward-Bound Survivor Group, and is a former member of the Upstate New York survivor group. Trying to protect Murphy, he was murdered and turned zombie by Priest Jacob and his Resurrection Cult.


Before the zombie apocalypse, Charles Garnett was with the National Guard based out of Georgia. He had a wife, Amy, and children whose fate are unknown. Where the end of the world might take a military man – tough, disciplined, a survivor – and harden them, Garnett has maintained a compassionate demeanor and employs a cool logic.[1]

Season 1[]

"Puppies and Kittens"[]

He is the leader of the Upstate New York survivor group. He first sees Hammond and Murphy approach in a boat, telling him about their mission. After bringing Hammond back to camp, Hammond explains the mission in more detail. After showing reluctance to helping Hammond get to the military convoy, Hammond forcibly conscripts him at gunpoint. When Hammond reaches the convoy, Garnett finds a baby and becomes determined to help it. However, the baby dies and becomes a zombie. When Hammond is killed, Garnett and the group reconsider the mission to go to California. Simon urges the group when Addy speaks to him on Hammond's radio. He then declares that the group will continue Hammond's mission to bring Murphy to California.

"Fracking Zombies"[]

The group, still reluctant on bringing Murphy to California, look into the distance to see New York and Charles tells them to take a good look as it will likely be a while. They see two bikers, Travis and Steve drive by, from which Cassandra hides. They later go to the Paramus park mall to scavenge gas, only to find that it had all been taken.

Warren asks why there are no survivors except for the two bikers and Charles says that it's probably because of Black Summer and most people have starved to death. One of the bikers then jumped out of a broken down car in which he was hiding. He says his friend had low morals. He also knows where they could get gas and Charles tells him to say where it is. Travis says it's the Jersey Devil Refinery to find that zombies have take it over.

And a few of them commit suicide inside the compound in order to turn others. Jacob captures some of the Westward-bound survivours group including Murphy.
