"Oh, you know. Connor can get… A little wordsy at times."
—Haley about Connor[src]

Connor has been described as wordsy and someone who can speak for long periods of time. He seems rather intimidating and some people are scared to get on his bad side. He's serious and is rarely seen in any other mood. However, he has a loving and romantic side which is shown when he's around Sally and seems to be truly in love with her.

During his time in Dead Weight, he appears to have several personas that he uses in different situations, It's unknown which is really his true personality. He can be loving and soft, as seen with Sally, brutal with Alison's execution or formal with recruiting new survivors for his community.


"Oh, you know. Connor can get… A little wordsy at times."
—Haley about Connor[src]

"I don’t want to make another woman feel like I don’t love her."
—Connor to Sally[src]

When first meeting Sally, Connor appeared attracted towards her. He offered her a deal with him in order to be spared and live an easy life due to her injuries. Over time, Connor appeared to be generally in love with Sally and Sally, although hesitant, appeared to also slowly become attracted to Connor. However, his intentions seem unclear as several times has his judgement shown that there may be another reason for being so close to Sally. However, he does appear genuine.

"Your friend? Sally, was it? She’s fucked, too. Connor’s going to turn her against you, and then who are you going to have?"
—Michael to Bri[src]

"You hate this place. You hate Connor and you hate me."
—Sally to Bri[src]

"I did good. I did-- I did well. Connor wanted this. I wanted this."

Michael is very loyal to Connor and followed him as a leader. He wilingly attempted to kill Bri for Connor and unleash the undead on Alison, leading to her death. However, following Connor eventually led to his death. Michael was most likely willing to die for Connor.
