~ Isabelle to Al.
We are the last light of the world. We are the last hope.
~ The CRM's slogan.
They don't want an alliance, they want to know who the competitors are.
~ Huck reveals the true nature of Civic Republic.

The Civic Republic Military, also known as the CRM, are the overarching antagonists of The Walking Dead TV Universe.

They serve as the main antagonists of both The Walking Dead: World Beyond and the upcoming film trilogy, and as the overarching antagonists of both The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead.

They specifically serve as the overarching antagonists in the second half of Season 7, all of Season 8, and the first half of Season 9 in The Walking Dead.

In Fear The Walking Dead, they serve as the main antagonists in the first half of Season 5, the overarching antagonists in the second half of Season 5 and the entirety of Season 6, and as the secondary antagonists in the first half of Season 7.

They are the most populated and advanced community and initially, they were part of an alliance of other communities known as the alliance of the three, but it was a plan to meet the most powerful communities and finish them to prosper for centuries. Their members are wearing black armor which protects them from walker bites and is well equipped as well as heavily armed. They also have maps of the United States and possibly other countries which have marked territories, they are from a mysterious location.

History

Background

It is unknown where the CRM originated from or if they possibly even existed before the zombie apocalypse. They mark people as an "A" or a "B" but is also unknown what exactly that means. They trade supplies in exchange for people which means they must have a large amount of food and water. The CRM clearly operates on a large scale as its members have been seen in Virginia and Texas and are well-armed. One of their pilots, Isabelle, kidnapped a woman named Althea, who was been filming a dead CRM member in Texas and inspected the maps the man carried with him but refused to bring her to the base all she asked was that Althea destroyed any evidence of their existence and refused to tell anyone about their existence. Althea expressed interest in coming with Isabelle but she warned her how her group can be very dangerous. After sharing a kiss, they parted ways and Isabelle returned to her base and Althea kept her promise and so the existence of the group was kept a secret.

They strike deals with other smaller groups where they trade supplies in exchange for people, as they did with Jadis and her group, The Scavengers. Sometimes the Scavengers would kidnap people as well as offerings for the CRM, as they tried with Gabriel and Negan, both of whom were unaware of the Scavengers' true intentions. As the Scavengers got involved in the conflict between Negan and Rick, they tried to take away 20 people from Negan in exchange for their loyalty but Negan refused and allowed the Scavengers to take 10, unaware of their intentions, to which Jadis agreed in fear of Negans wrath.

Half a year later in Virginia, Rick Grimes saw a helicopter flying over him while he was going to Jadis for negotiations. After The Scavengers were slaughtered by Simon on the orders of Negan, The CRM lost interest in the Junkyard until one and a half years later Jadis proposed to bring them new people in exchange for safety. After Rick Grimes was presumed dead after blowing up a bridge to save his friends and family, he was captured by Jadis and the CRM. Six years later, Rick is still missing and presumed dead by everyone he knew including his girlfriend and daughter Judith, along with hundreds if not thousands of other survivors. During his capture, Rick's second son and third child were born. So far, Rick has no idea of his existence and the young boy thinks his father died before his birth.

World Beyond

It is revealed that the Civic Republic under Major General Baele has been eliminating the most powerful communities using a powerful gas that eliminates its population invaded with walkers, all in order to be the only dominant community over the whole of the United States.

Trivia

  • Before the official first appearance of the CRM in Season 8 Episode 5, there have been two instances of helicopters being seen on TWD without any explanation. The first one was seen in the Pilot episode by Rick and the second one in the Season 2 finale. It is possible that those were CRM helicopters as well.
  • Their symbol is a three-circled figure which can be seen on their helicopters and their maps.
  • Secrecy is vital to the group. The only person who knows of their existence besides their members and captives is Althea although Negan, Morgan, and Alicia have seen two of their helicopters separately and Gabriel heard Jadis talk with a CRM member via Walkie-Talkie but none of them found out about their existence.
  • They are the first and so far only overarching antagonist in the Walking Dead Universe as they appear in both shows and will play a major part in the upcoming film series focusing on Rick Grimes.
  • Given how professional the group operates it might be possible that they are government and/or military remnants.
  • Fear The Walking Dead seemed to hint that the CRM's ultimate goal is to rebuild civilization under their rule which on one hand can be considered noble goals but also very sinister.
  • Given their possible goal, they may be the main antagonists of the entire The Walking Dead universe since no other villain in The Walking Dead or Fear The Walking Dead had planned this big, not even The Governor, Negan or Alpha.
