Season 1[]

"Philly Feast"[]

Merchant is part of the Philadelphia Cannibal Survivor Group. As one of Tobias's men, he is the gunner of the group's 50 caliber machine gun.

Led by Tobias Campell, the group started out like many others, surviving through resourcefulness and cunning, while retaining some semblance of their humanity and morality. However, during Black Summer, Tobias suffered a mental breakdown and led his "family" down the dark path of victimization and cannibalism.

In the events of "Philly Feast", the "family" encountered the Westward-Bound Survivor Group after Travis spotted Cassandra with them in episode 2 "Fracking Zombies".

Eventually, the Philly group was able to kidnap Addy and propose a trade to get Cassandra back. This trade prompted the Westward group to return with a plan to free Cassandra, the result of which was the utter destruction of the Philly group. As a result, Merchant is shot in the head and killed by 10K during the raid of the cannibal's compound..
