Rick Grimes

Search for 'Rick Grimes' on Amazon

Rick Grimes went to college for police administration. Around his sophomore year, he was made chaperone at a New Yearís party by his parents, who were attending a party elsewhere. He met a high school senior named Lori there. Rick kept in touch with her while he finished college. After Lori dropped out of her first year in college, she moved back to Cynthiana, Kentucky, her and Rickís hometown. Rick soon married Lori.

In 1996, Rick went into work one morning. He was sitting in the police station drinking his second cup of coffee for the day. Another officer named Gilroy was telling Rick about a drunk they had brought in the night before. Then Lori called Rick telling him that her water broke about ten minutes after he left. Rick grabbed his coat and hurried home to Lori. He got Gilroy to call Doc Stevens so he could meet them at the hospital. Rick got Lori to the hospital without a hitch. It was one of the only times he got to use the sirens on his car. There were some complications and Lori had to get a Cesarean. They had a son and named him Carl.

In October 2003, Rick Grimes and his partner Shane were taking cover behind their patrol car while being in a shootout with an escaped convict on a road. Rick decided to make a run for a ditch while Shane gave him cover fire. Instead, the convict shot Shaneís gun out of his hands and shot Rick through the right side of his chest.

Some time passes on and Rick wakes up in room 251 of the Harrison Memorial Hospital to a zombie apocalypse.
