Elmer Province is a character in The Walking Dead: Splatterpunk, first introduced in the chapter "Days Gone Bye", in the sub-chapter One. Elmer died four years before the apocalypse began during a failed drug-dealing transaction.


Elmer was the son of Linda Province, and lived in King County, Georgia with his mother. Elmer went through elementary school as any other child would, but through dialogue between Linda and Rick Grimes, she stated that when it came time for Elmer to go to Middle School, he starting to hang with the wrong crowd. Linda said that Elmer started doing and dealing drugs when his friend Diggy got him into it. He was also friends with a boy named Jerome, and Diggy was sent to prison some time when the three were in High School. Elmer had been arrested multiple times, and was always released. One day in March of 2008, Rick and Shane were called to investigate two men behind the Pearson's Hardware Store. The two men were Elmer and Harold Peterson, and Elmer was trying to sell Harold some cocaine and marijuana. Apparently, Harold thought that Elmer owed him some for unknown reasons, and Elmer tried to explain to him that he didn't owe him anything. After the two cops arrive, Elmer tries to evade them and shoots Harold in the heart, killing him. He shot at Rick and Shane multiple times before being cornered and shot by Shane in the head. Rick and Linda Province were the only ones to attend Elmer's funeral a few days later.


Killed ByEdit

Shortly after Elmer shot and killed Harold, Shane managed to sneak-up behind Elmer as he began to fire his weapon at the law enforcement officers. After they corned him, Elmer was shot in the head.
