#29 Amy McGraw

Amy McGraw - Deceased

This young girl prayed for death as she watched her family fall one by one. She felt a bit hard done by when this prayer was answered yet all those years of praying for a pony came to nothing.

#28 Barry Bennett

Barry Bennett - Deceased

A sweet and pretty blonde stole his heart.

And ate it.

#27 Jeffrey Townsworth

Jeffrey Townsworth - Deceased

Died screaming and never stopped. His wails can be heard through the streets late at night, like a warning siren to survivors. Steer well clear.

#26 Karl Warrington

Karl Warrington - Deceased

They called him 'the butcher'. The local butcher. Famous for his sausages, which were slightly above average quality. He still goes through the motions - chopping, grinding - but no part of him remembers why.

#25 Percival Prendergast

Percival Prendergast - Deceased

He knew the moment the teeth met his skin that his fate was sealed. And yet still, through his last moments, somewhere inside he wondered if he had enough milk for the next day's breakfast.

#23 Jetta Johnson

Jetta Johnson - Deceased

Always wanted to feel like a princess. Now, doesn't feel much of anything. Except hunger. In that respect, her life is unchanged.

#22 Patrick Mayhew

Patrick Mayhew - Deceased

Lost his shirt at the races. Lost his life soon after.

#21 Davy Decker

Davy Decker - Deceased

Never fancied the idea of dieting or exercise. But, after he turned out to be the main course at a local zombie picnic, he escaped several pounds lighter. But his appetite was greater than ever so you know he'll just put it all back on.

#20 Abhijeet Dasa

Abhijeet Dasa (Alan Henshaw Jr.) - Deceased

The best thing about joining the Hare Krishnas wasn't the inner peace, the gaudy sheets or even the jangly chanting. It was the vegetarian feasts. And yet, at that last feast, Alan suddenly found himself craving a nice chunk of raw meat.

#19 Paula Yementine

Paula Yementine - Deceased

Deep down, she was always so worried about what others would think of her. One can only imagine what the gossipmongers would have made of her eating her own parents.

#18 "Old Man" Campbell

"Old Man" Campbell - Deceased

Shouted at children who came close to his garden, though they always knew he was mostly harmless. Now, his bite is definitely worse than his bark.

#17 Gerry Moffet

Gerry Moffet - Deceased

Lived for the music. Died for a tin of beans.

#16 Mary Finkelstein

Mary Finkelstein - Deceased

It's always the quiet ones who surprise you. Ms. Finkelstein fought off an entire zombie horde armed with nothing more than a wooden spoon and a packet of jelly beans. Unfortunately, she became infected through numerous tears in her skin.

#15 Terence Henderson

Terence Henderson - Deceased

Spends his days wandering through town moaning and groaning. Even more so now that he's a zombie.

Sunday, August 16, 2009

#14 Perry Clements

Perry Clements - Deceased

Always the first to vom at the staff parties, rumours spread that, since turning, he has been spewing green bile-like liquid that can burn through human flesh. In truth, it can't. But it smells really nasty.

#13 Maxwell Pillingness

Maxwell Pillingness - Deceased

A long survivor of the outbreak, he spent his final moments worrying about finding a change of shirt - the blood from the bite to his elbow having ruined the one he has on. On the plus side, the pain in his elbow has recently subsided.

Friday, August 14, 2009

#12 Reginald Ford

Reginald Ford - Very Deceased

Mr. Ford was long dead when the outbreak occurred. That didn't mean he had to miss out on the fun. It took just 14 hours to free himself from his grave. He thinks, next time, he could do it in 10.

#11 Betty Jackson

Betty Jackson - Deceased

Stories tell of cornered rats jumping for the jugular. Former librarian, Betty Jackson, found this to be only partially true - it didn't so much jump as scramble furiously up her dress.

#10 Squatty McStubbson

Squatty McStubbson - Deceased

His growth stunted by smoking (he started two weeks before he was born), he was picked on throughout his childhood for his smaller stature. Among the ranks of the shambling undead, his size is an advantage, lulling victims into a false sense of security before biting their kneecaps.

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

#9 Ben Paddington

Ben "Popeye" Paddington - Deceased

Was self-conscious about his eyepatch throughout most of his life, having lost his eye in a duck accident. Turning undead rid Mr. Paddington of his inhibitions. He lost the eyepatch. And indeed all his clothing.

Monday, August 10, 2009

#8 Lenny Michelson

Lenny Michelson - Deceased

Joined the ranks of the living dead so he could finally feel like part of a group. Something bigger than himself.

Sunday, August 9, 2009

#7 Dr. Howard Jones

Dr. Howard Jones - Deceased

No available records can confirm status as a geniune doctor. May have been a nickname. Or stage name. Like Dr. Dre. Once appeared in a 1985 documentary on the living dead.

Saturday, August 8, 2009

#6 Honey

Honey (full name unknown) - Deceased

A streetwalker. Not someone who walked for exercise and a healthy heart. Like, a hooker. The healthy heart was entirely unintentional. Her intestines, on the other hand, are rather less than healthy and are prone to leakage.

Friday, August 7, 2009

#5 Dr. P. J. Schillinger

Dr. Perbert J. Schillinger - Deceased

A doctor. Of science - not one that could actually prescribe fun pills. Worked as a lab assistant in an early research programme trying to find the cause of the zombie outbreak. He found first hand that bites may be a factor. Unable to reach a definitive conclusion due to being dead.

Thursday, August 6, 2009

#4 Trevor Moominstein

Trevor Moominstein - Deceased

Once had a drinking problem but has been sober for seven months, around the same amount of time he has been among the shambling masses. If only his wife was around, she might appreciate just how much he has changed.

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

#3 Spencer Spencerson

Spencer Spencerson - Deceased

Died of (almost) natural causes on day one. While many of the earliest who turned were greatly outnumbered by the living, he was quick to find more of his own kind. Some instinct still tells him there is safety in numbers.

Tuesday, August 4, 2009

#2 Harry Fluffer

Harry Fluffer - Deceased

Spent three days laughing at the shambling idiots from his front porch. On day four, he joined them.

#1 Oliver Smith

Oliver Smith - Deceased

Believed the zombie apocalypse was little more than hysteria, fed by the local rags. The bite on his left buttock just after a rather relaxing bath convinced him there was more to this apocalypse theory than he had believed previously.

He didn't get a chance to put his pants on before he turned.
