Darla Donovan is a character in The Walking Dead: Splatterpunk. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Donovan, and has one brother named Rich. This character is first introduced in the chapter "Days Gone Bye".


Almost nothing is known about Darla's life before the apocalypse began. It is known that she grew up with her brother in rural Georgia, and that she had a mother and fathers whose names have yet to be determined. She lived in the same neighborhood as the Grimes family, and was taught by her mother at school in math class. It is possible that she was friends with Carl Grimes, as he was friends with Rich, and the Donovan family could have attended the neighborhood barbeques.


Little is known about what happened to Darla after the apocalypse began. It is known that sometime after the initial outbreak, her mother was taken to Harrison Memorial Hospital, where she became a patient. It is assumed that while her mother was at the hospital, she was watched by her father at their home. Her mother later died and reanimated presumably and was put down. Her body was then added to the many others in the makeshift morgue behind the hospital. An unknown time after her mother died, Darla and her brother were attacked and killed by zombies, their father's whereabouts being left unknown. A short period later, both of the Donovan children reanimated as zombies. When Tina ran away from the safehouse, distraught over Cindy's death, she is attacked by the zombified Darla, and is shot in the head by Tina's sister, Bebe. Her corpse is left on the street to rot.


Killed ByEdit

Shortly after her mother died, within the first month of the apocalypse, Darla Donovan was attacked and killed by zombies. An unknown time later, she reanimated as a zombie herself.

  • Bebe (Zombified)

It was unknown how long Darla had remained as a zombie before she began to attack Tina and was shot and killed for a second time by Bebe.

Killed VictimsEdit

This is a list of victims that Darla has killed:

  • Possibly numerous counts of zombies.


  • All members of the Donovan family have deceased statuses, except for the father, Mr. Donovan, whose status remains unknown.
  • Both of Darla's parents actual names are unknown, and go by titles such as 'Mr.' and 'Mrs.'.
