"Growing up in rural Georgia, you're taught not to waste. It's how I was raised and how I raised my boys. Now, you've got monsters roaming around, that do nothing but eat people! And for what? To continue to rot until they eat some more! We thought we could put that meat to better use."
—Brenda explaining her cannibalism

Brenda St. John is a primary antagonist and a survivor of the outbreak in The Walking Dead: Survive, she is a cannibalistic mother who lives with her two sons Andrew and Daniel.


Very little is known about Brenda before the outbreak except that she owned the St. John's Dairy Farm somewhere near or in Macon, Georgia. She grew up in Macon or the Macon area where she was taught not to waste resources and how to "survive" both physically and metaphorically. She has two sons, Andrew and Danny and a deceased husband, Terry.


Hungry For Help

Brenda is first encountered at the St. John Dairy Farm where she introduces herself and gives Lee's group some food. She tells them that their cow, Maybelle, is sick and that she could cook the whole group dinner.

Later, she is seen sitting on the porch of her house. She tells Lee that she is thankful for Katjaa's help with her cow. She also tells Lee that her husband wouldn't have wanted Danny to kill Jolene, and that the only reason why they made the deal with the bandits was to keep their humanity. She is seen taking a personal interest in Larry, calling him a "big ol' sweetheart", much to Lee's amusement. At dinner when the St. John's are revealed to be cannibals, she explains that she was raised not to waste.

After Lee, Clementine, Lilly, and Kenny escape the meat locker, she is seen inside the house holding Katjaa hostage. As Lee approaches her, she backs up the stairs, warning him with a .45 Single Action Army revolver not to get any closer, otherwise, she'll kill Katjaa. As she reaches the top of the stairs, she is grabbed and bitten by a legless zombified David/Travis. As the group leaves and the farm is overrun with walkers, she can be seen walking out of the house as a walker.


Killed By:

​When Brenda is enough in the last stair, helding Katjaa hostage and threatening Lee with a pistol, a zombified Travis or David showns up and bites her in her neck, her body later reanimates and is seen outside the house.
