The characters of World War Z are 4 U.S Army Soldiers who were part of a military squad sent into NYC to rescue civillians. The four are the only survivors. They are;
Captain Mathew Winslow
Main Article: Mathew Winslow
CPT Mathew 'Matty' Winslow was the leader of the military squad sent into NYC before they were all killed by zombies. He has dark brown hair and green eyes. He wears two sets of dog tags around his neck, one belongs to him and the other belongs to Rick, his friend who was killed by zombies before his eyes. Winslow is determined to wipe out as many zombies as he can before his "inevitable death". Winslow prefers to use LMG's to other guns.
Sergeant Wayne Truman
Main Article: Wayne Truman
SGT Wayne Truman is an African-American soldier in Captain Winslow's squad. He has a shaved head and blue eyes. He is very stern and solitary, prefering quiet sniping spots to open fighting. He seems to hate his fellow survivor Jason Silvers who is a loud hot head (which Truman despises). Truman prefers to use Sniper Rifles to other guns.
Corporal Paquito Mendez
Main Article: Paquito Mendez
CPL Paquito 'Pancho Villa' Mendez is a Hispanic soldier in Captain Winlsow's squad. He has black hair and green eyes. He earned the nickname 'Pancho Villa' for his rebellious attitude as he will usually do whatever he wants, even when given direct orders. Mendez is usually silent (which Truman likes about him) and only talks on rare occasions (when he buys a Perk-a-Cola or gets a pistol; either wall or Myster Box). Mendez prefers pistols to other guns
Private Jason Silvers
Main Article: Jason Silvers
PVT Jason Silvers is the newest member of Captain Winslow's squad (which earns him the nickname 'Rookie'). He has spiky blonde hair and hazel eyes. He is a loud, hyperactive, metro-sexual hot head. He dislikes Truman, who he regards as "a stiff". Silvers speaks with a strong Brooklyn accent and will often say thing like "I recognize this place" which hints that he is from New York. Silvers prefers to use Shotguns and Explosives to other guns (most likely because they're loud like him).
