"He tried to take my machete mommy! He did! But I wouldn't let him take it!"
—Robert to Lei after murdering Jim.

Robert Taylor was first introduced in Chapter 1: Dead And Buried, and is a major character within the Walking Dead: Ascension. Very little is known of Robert's life prior to the apocalypse, besides the fact that he was an elementary school student. Robert lost his grandmother in death within the first few opening moments of Chapter 1, causing him to immediately seek a parental figure out of Lei. Since Chapter 1, Robert has shown great amounts of maturity, however, he has shown signs of mental instability even more so. Despite Lei and Donnovan having no romantic connection whatsoever until Chapter 55, Robert has sought out parental roles within the two, referring to them as "mom" and "dad".


Boston, MassachusettsEdit

Robert Taylor lived with his family prior to the outbreak and had done some traveling with his grandmother. He was an elementary school student prior to the outbreak as well, but that is just presumed.

Killed ByEdit

Not even hours after brutally shooting ten innocent people, Robert started to become agitated again, he grabbed Lei's gun and pointed it to her, blaming her for the events of Donnovan's death and the scavenger attack. She slowly began to talk the unstable boy down and just as he was about to hand the gun over a bullet passed through his neck, killing him within seconds.

Hours after being killed by Ben, Lei still cradled her son's corpse in her arms. He began to open his eyes an grab Lei, now a walker. Lei began to sob even more and reluctantly put Robert out of his misery with a gunshot to the head

Killed VictimsEdit

this list shows the victims Robert has killed:


Lei RodriguezEdit

"Robert, I love you. You're my pride and joy and I would never do anything to hurt you. M-Mom forgives you for everything you've done, you're the most perfect little boy Robert. Now hand me back my gun please S-Sweetie."
—Lei's final words to Robert before he was killed

Lei's affection towards Robert was readily obvious the moment she met him. While their relationship starts off as nothing more but a helpful stranger and a little boy, the bond strengthens over the course of Ascension. As Robert is the closest person to Lei in the apocalypse, both of them came to form a symbiotic relationship, Lei seeing Robert as a son of her own while Robert instantly considered Lei as a mother. However, the relationship eventually takes a toll for the worse when Robert's mental stability took a toll for the worst as well. Lei and Robert's relationship turned into a Ferris wheel with it's ups and down. Their relationship was improved however Robert murdered ten innocent people. The two end on a warm but emotional note, as Lei, in tears, has to put down her adopted son so he couldn't blindly hurt another person. Robert is without a doubt Lei's greatest influence throughout the final chapters of Ascension and throughout Inducia Chronicles, as she put her effort and mothership into her new family in Inducia. She ultimately finishes her work that she promised Robert she would one day complete while sacrificing herself so the other's can continue to live. Lei mentions Robert several times in Inducia Chronicles, and becomes visibly saddened each time he is mentioned. She has several dreams of him at certain point as well.
