Name:Daryl Dixon
Birthdate:May 16
Daryl was once a lone wolf.
He couldn't trust anyone but himself and his brother.
That all changed after the zombie apocalypse.

Daryl is often volatile and will quickly resort to violence in threatening situations, but is still significantly more level-headed and rational than his older brother, Merle Dixon. An experienced tracker and hunter, he is deadly accurate with his Crossbow, the Horton Scout HD 125. He is also highly skilled with various firearms and knives. He has taken a prominent role in safeguarding the members of his group, and in the third season has replaced Shane as Rick's right-hand man. Although he is shown to be the lone wolf of the group early on in the series, he has started to integrate himself more with everyone, particularly in his friendship with Rick and his growing relationship with Carol.

The two closest people in his life right now are:

Merle Dixon:
Daryl was raised by his brother to share his beliefs. Merle was Daryl's biggest influence growing up, and was also apparently the only member of their family that paid any attention to him growing up. When the apocalypse broke out, Merle and Daryl worked together and easily survived. When Daryl found out in "Tell It to the Frogs", that Merle had been left for dead by the group, he became furious. After discovering Merle had escaped Daryl had no doubts his brother was still alive. Daryl was the only person during Season 2 who was interested in looking for his brother, and even had an hallucination about Merle in "Chupacabra". In the hallucination, however, Daryl expressed his own dislike of his brother and how Merle was never really there for him and how he lived in Merle's shadow. After being captured, Daryl finally meets his brother in the walker pit.

Carol Peletier:
A close bond began to develop between the two during the Season 2 as Daryl risked his life by going out in the woods to search for Sophia. After Daryl was injured by being accidentally shot by Andrea, Carol brings him food and cares for him, telling Daryl that he did more for Sophia than Ed ever did, and that he was just as good of a person as Rick and Shane. Their relationship becomes strained after the events during the barn massacre and Sophia's revelation as a walker, with Daryl becoming rude towards her but soon apologizes to her, and even saves her during the barn invasion in the Season 2 Finale. In the Season 3 premiere, "Seed", Carol brings Daryl some food and they began talking, she rubs her shoulder and he asks "What's wrong?" she replies with "That rifle, the kickback, just not used to it." Daryl then gently massages her shoulder. After that, Carol starts to jokingly flirt with Daryl but he denies the offer and they both laugh. Additionally, in Season 3, in the episode "Hounded", Daryl finds Carol after being lost for days. This likely strengthened their relationship.

WARNING: If you don't like coarse language, please do not read the journal. The TV show has a parental discretion warning and at least in his own journal, I would rather not tow the line because I feel like it is doing the character an injustice so please keep that in mind when reading the entries. There should be a Not Safe For Work warning as per Dreamwidth's settings but I am also placing this here just in case.
