The best characters on Fear the Walking Dead may not always have good intentions, but they do what they need to in order to survive. Unlike The Walking Dead, which takes place after the zombie apocalypse has already occurred, Fear the Walking Dead takes place at the very onset of the outbreak and deals with the inevitable fallout. 

The series centers on the Clark family and their ongoing struggle to adapt to their new surroundings. Fear the Walking Dead features a candid cast of heroic (and evil) characters. While some characters were killed off and others joined up in later episodes, this list ranks the greatest characters from every season. Some, like Madison Clark, are easy to root for, while other characters are far more nefarious. And while the series is known for Which Fear the Walking Dead character is your favorite?
