Kenneth "Ken" is a minor character and survivor in The Last Ones.
Nothing is known about Ken or his life before the outbreak. It is possible however that he lived and worked in Summerlyn City.
Ken first appears as Eli gathers his people and attempts to talk them into attacking and killing Peter Thompson's people at their camp. Initially, the survivors are against the idea but Eli convinces them by stating that if they do not act first, it will be them who are attacked and killed. When Cassie doubts if they need killing, Eli reminds her of Jai Patil's cold-blooded killing of Amar. Reluctantly, the group agree and are led away by Ken, with the exception of Joel, as Eli requests him to stay behind as he has another job for him.
On their way to the camp, they are calmly confronted by Joy Maybell, one of the survivors. They immediately raise their weapons at her. Joy hands over her gun and places her hands in the air. She is stunned when she discovers the group have been sent to kill everyone at the camp. When Cassie and Big Pete get cold feet about killing, Ken takes them to one side and tries to convince them to follow Eli's instructions. Joy is left being guarded by Jonny.
Over the next few minutes, they continue to debate on whether to follow his instructions. Cassie and Big Pete bring up the possibility of taking them alive. Just then, Ken is horrified to discover that Joy has escaped by slitting Jonny's throat and taken off in her car. With their friend dead, the group finally find the motivation they need to follow Eli's commands.
Eli's followers make their way closer to the survivors camp. Malcolm is insistent that Joy pay the price for the murder of Jonny. Before they can talk further, the group are troubled to come across Joy's abandoned car giving off a noisy alarm. Big Pete disables it and remarks that Joy set the alarm on purpose. As Malcolm asks why she would do that, Gus spots a large group of zombies heading straight for them, as they've been lured over by the racket. Big Pete asks Malcolm if they answer his question.
They are almost overwhelmed by the number of zombies but they quickly use their guns to dispose of them. Nigel is approached by a zombie from behind and is bitten in the shoulder. He kills it, but it quickly becomes apparent to the group that Nigel has no chance of surviving. Ken remarks that he can't put yet another friend down, so Big Pete does it instead, in spite of Nigel's protests that he'll be fine. Alerted by the noise, Bobby de Luca enters the scene. Upon realising the group mean him harm, he flees, but is chased by Malcolm and Dan. The remaining survivors, Big Pete, Ken, Cassie, and Gus, head off to deal with Joy.
Upon driving into the survivors camp, Gus is shot and killed instantly. Big Pete attempts to persuade Cassie and Ken that Joy is just one woman and that they can take her. Eventually all three stand and open fire, but Joy proves too quick and Cassie is shot in the head and killed, much to the horror and upset of Big Pete. Ken tries to tell Big Pete to get a hold of himself. Georgie looks around the side of the car and discovers that Ken is temporarily distracted, she tells Joy, who takes action and shoots and kills Ken with a bullet to the chest.
Some hours after Ken's death, Jai Patil, Shiro Kato and Javier Rodriguez return to find the bodies of Ken and Eli's other followers being eaten by zombies. When Joy's body is also discovered and Jai reveals she died of a gunshot wound, a furious Shiro walks over to Gus's body and begins to stamp on his head.
This list shows the known victims that Ken has killed:
- Possibly numerous counts of zombies.
- He appeared in three episodes, one as a corpse.
- Out of all the main characters, Ken only met Eli and Joy.
