Rancis is a major character in The Regular Dead. He is a young boy who was adopted by Rigby and Eileen after his biological parents abandoned him.


Rancis has the personality of any other child. It is implied that he is oblivious of what's going on in the world, unlike Vanellope who is well aware of the current situation.


Rancis comes from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. For the first few years of his life, Rancis lived with his biological parents, and Rigby and Eileen were just friends of the family. A year before the outbreak, Rancis' parents abandoned him, and Rigby and Eileen took action and adopted them as their own son, despite their young age. Shortly before the outbreak, Rancis and his adoptive family went up to Memphis to visit Eileen's sister.


A New Day

Rancis is first seen urging Rigby to come outside because he's bored. Rigby explains to Mordecai about Rancis' past before adopting him. Rancis asks Felix if he can help with the fence, to which the latter agrees to this. Rigby tells Mordecai that he thought that Rancis was being kidnapped when a man grabbed him at a gas station and that he was "on the fucker in about two seconds".

Rancis was the one that accidentally turned on the tractor that ran over Felix's leg. One of the walkers grabbed Rancis and attempted to devour him, which forced Mordecai and Rigby to work together to save Rancis' life. After Felix's death, Ralph kicks out Rancis and the others from his property, with Rancis being the direct cause of Felix's death.
