Daryl is at first a brazen, surly, impulsive redneck but develops himself as an integral part of the group. His aggression is unprecedented, and it remains one of his most valuable assets, as well as one of his most noticeable. After the war with the Saviors and the defeat of Negan, Daryl becomes the new leader of the Sanctuary, though he eventually resigns from the role, giving it to Carol instead. In the years following Rick’s assumed death, Daryl eventually started living in the woods after spending a long time searching for his best friend’s body. He also found and trained a dog, who he just refers to as “Dog”.
