Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first official image of one of the new characters in The Walking Dead, Bob Stookey, as played by Larry Gilliard Jr.

Described as a “former Army medic,” Stookey’s name should be familiar to fans of the comic book series and prequel novels, but he will be undergoing some changes in the show. Instead of hailing from Woodbury and working for the governor, Stookey will instead be found by Daryl Dixon about a week before the events of season 4 start.

“His backstory is not entirely the same as in the comic and the novel,” explains new showrunner Scott M. Gimple. “I think he’s seen things go bad over and over, and winding up in this stable place doesn’t shake him from his experience. He struggles with that.”

“You can see there’s something deeper and darker that’s going on with this character, just from the first episode,” says Gilliard. “We don’t really know what it is. We just know he’s got some issues that he’s dealing with.”
