The Motor City Hammer controls the Rot and Ruin with his partner in crime Charlie Pink-Eye and you will almost always find them together. A brute of a man, he is most recognizable by his long black pipe that he has used to kill many zombies and humans.
The Motor City Hammer dies in the first book at the attack on Charlie's camp. Lilah kills him with a pistol, saving Nix Riley from death. She then quiets him with her spear.
