When the dead started returning to life a chance visit with a neighbour lead her to take up the sword. Her boyfriend and his best friend where later infected and reanimated thus she cut off their jaws and arms to prevent them from attacking her. She carried them around on chains explaining their presence decreased the chance of other zombies attacking.
She later joins the other survivors at “the prison” and started a relationship with “Tyreese” a former NFL star. She was a part of a small group that investigated a plane crash and discovered the town of Woodbury where the mayor eventually betrays and rapes/assaults her. When she escapes she tortures the governor instead of ending his life. He later retaliated and attacks the prison. Her lover Tyreese is killed in the conflict and she flees.
