Floyd Baracus is a former DA and later mayor of Seattle.
As the DA, he was Peyton Charles' boss. He was turned into a zombie by Blaine DeBeers and had to drop cases and subvert justice or risk being cut off from brains. Eventually, Liv Moore and Peyton made sure to remove his dependency.
He returned as a highly popular DA, and was elected mayor shortly before Fillmore Graves tainted a vaccine to create 10.000 zombies in the city. FG had worked behind the scenes to get him elected, even staging a hit on his son Buck. As an openly Zombie mayor of a walled off city, he struggled to keep the tensions down and work with the autocratic Chases Graves.
Hoping to auction off the Zombie cure for quick cash, Blaine used Baracus as a demonstration of the merchandise. Baracus was happy at being cured, but his joy was cut short-lived as he was shot through the heart immediately. His body was dumped in a park and FG installed Peyton as acting mayor.
