- "You are angry Rick. You're angry. I get that. I get it. I mean without family who the fuck are we? There was a time I would do anything for my wife and daughter, I mean the first time I ever killed was for my wife and daughter. Not enough for them, no no no no no please. You see the thing about our loved ones, right, our FUCKING loved ones, they come and they BLINDSIDE you every fucking time. So they say to me, they say Riley, Riley, who the FUCK is it going to be? THEM or ME, ME or THEM? Like, like you know, like they fucking think that I need to make a fucking choice."

Riley Vega is a main character and an antagonist as well as a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is a psychotic, charismatic man and the leader of a group of survivors known as "The Wolves". He serves as the primary antagonist for the first half of Season 6.
Riley is a crazy, psychopath type of guy who wants nothing but his own personal gain. He is very intimidating to some people and always does everything in his power to do what he wants. He is known for torturing people or killing them for his own entertainment and doesnt care for anyone around him's personal safety and is willing to sacrifise any of them as long as he survives.
He also has a past which he doesnt want to talk about and which has caused him to become what he is today. This was later revealed to be him being a family man type guy as he had a daughter which made him a "good man", however during the apocalypse he lost his daughter causing him to turn into a monster.
The list shows the victims Riley has killed:
- Lia DeVries (Caused or Direct)
- Trace Oxford (Caused)
- Numerous counts of zombies and unnamed people.
- Possibly several counts of Alexandria Safe-Zone survivors.
To be added
- Riley is heavily based on Vaas Montenegro from Far Cry 3.
- It has been confirmed that Riley will not die until the Wolves Leader on the TV show is killed off.
