Lucy dying from old age Lucy Serena Murphy was a character in Nation. She was, briefly, a member of the Westward-Bound Survivor Group ; she resided outside of Springfield, Illinois, but was with The Man for a certain amount of time.
The next morning, Murphy sat at the side of a road with Lucy, newly born, in his arms. She begins to cry, attracting zombies, forcing her father to calm her.
It is presumed that Murphy bit them to control them, making them the guardians of his child. It's unknown if she's as misanthropic towards humans as her father, or being a child, simply doesn't understand what she is.
They are tied up and try to convince the family that they intend to retrieve Lucy to give her to her father. It is then proven that Lucy can control blends just as her father can since she seems to be asking questions through Pa Kettle.
At the Kettle house half a dozen zombies can be seen, so she already shows signs at controlling large groups. While there she encounters an under (not zombie but not human as their brains have been fried) and Add ends up saving her.
The Kettle family agrees to come with Add and Doc but are intercepted by The Man before they leave. Lucy begins to ask questions, so persistently that The Man tasers her.
Through Murphy, we see that Lucy feels as if she is going to suffocate, causing another growth spurt. The Man eventually takes the bag off of Lucy's head; she has grown from a child to a pre-teen.
Add finds Lucy flicking matches near a gas station. Add eventually escapes from the burning boat she was stranded on and immediately seeks Lucy.
Meanwhile, Lucy continues to annoy The Man, chanting “You're going to die.” To counter this, The Man drives over countless zombies (since Lucy can feel their pain) until she stops.
Add finds the truck The Man was driving, and his body lying on the ground. Lucy exits the car and pleads for The Man to retrieve a chocolate bar for him.
When she finds Add, The Man is shown hiding underneath the truck. The episode ends with Doc and a very bruised Add driving off in a stolen vehicle, seeking Lucy.
The Man and Lucy arrive at their rendezvous point at Mount Casey. Near the end of the episode, Roberta and the rest of the group find Lucy.
The Man then shoots Murphy and Roberta, taking Lucy hostage once more and leaving the scene, right before the cliffhanger at the end of the episode. Whenever Lucy is scared she has a growth spurt, explaining why she looks older than her actual age.
At a young age, she already shows signs of having the ability to control zombies like her father. She is also growing fairly fast: Murphy left her with the Kettles when she was only a few days old.
Nation is an American zombie drama series created by Karl Schaefer and Craig Angler. Simon Cruller (DJ Quails), commonly known as Citizen Z, is a PFC and former hacker who was working at the NSA's Northern Light listening post in the Arctic Circle.
After a doomed rescue mission flight out of Northern Light, he becomes the NSA's sole surviving employee and uses his high-tech equipment to assist the group in its journey to California. He also runs a radio broadcast for other survivors, informing people to take cover when there is a threat of inescapable disaster-level weather or zombie hordes.
He is slowly going insane from loneliness; his only companion is a sled dog named Pup. In the second season, the Northern Lights missile defense system intercepts a nuclear bomb, severely damaging the listening post and waking the zombies in the doomed evacuation flight wreckage.
Citizen Z fights to survive the cold and the zombie onslaught, despite minimal shooting skills. At the end of season 2, Citizen Z decides to leave Northern Light when he realizes that all the post's resources are used up, and it has sustained too much damage for him to survive there any longer.
He leaves on foot with Pup, pulling a dog sled, in subzero temperatures. Near death, he is rescued by Kaya, an Inuit girl, and her surviving family members.
They return to Northern Lights when they need food, and he and Kaya form a relationship, which results in her becoming pregnant.

He also becomes more and more misanthropic, going from simply a cowardly jerk with few redeeming moments to an increasingly darker character who even starts to succumb to zombie instincts and does not care about the lives of others to the point where he is willing to abandon the mission.
He also develops a special gift: After biting a person or exposing them to his saliva or blood, he can direct them using telepathy. In season 3, after finding out the survivors at Zone want to use him for only themselves, he escapes, bites 10K and decides to make the human race into zombie-human hybrids like himself.
In a fight with the forces of Zone, a bullet passes through him and hits Warren, infecting her with his blood. After Zone falls, he and Warren return to the mainland and eventually meet up with Lucy, 10K, Doc and Sgt.
