Category: Supernatural Being, Human Predator, Undead, Living Dead, Zombie
Age: Late teens at the time of death
Origin: A military research facility somewhere on the West Coast
Habitat: Anywhere really – city streets, sewers, laboratories.
General Description: Julie Walker was resurrected by her boyfriend Curt Reynolds after the two of them got into a ghastly motorcycle accident. Julie became one of the living dead, however her case is truly quite remarkable. Julie is a compassionate, reasonable, and even remorseful zombie. She is capable of realizing that she is in fact undead and even be scared by this fact. Julie even attempted a suicide, something rarely heard of among the undead.
Some experts speculate that these characteristics can be explained by the relative freshness of Julie’s corpse at the time of the Trioxin exposure, or the relative lack of brain damage, while others claim that her behavior is easily explained by her ability to thwart the hunger attacks; however the argument remains very much open for further study and discussion.
Friends, Associates, and Sidekicks: Curt Reynolds, Riverman
Sworn Enemies: Military researchers, multiracial thugs
a) Ability to temporarily control her hunger by self-mutilation.
NOTE: Controlling hunger with pain is something World Hunger Relief organizations should seriously study. Considering the fact that pain is so much cheaper than food nowadays, the global hunger problem can be probably resolved within a matter of weeks.
b) Before becoming a living dead Julie’s saliva possessed a rare quality – it made magnetic key cards work on doors that they were not intended to open… or at least allowed for increased security clearance.
NOTE: This ability has not been put to the test since Julie’s untimely death. We are not even sure zombies have saliva.
Weapons of Choice: A stone in her right hand and a spike in her left
Weaknesses: Likes human brains, but feels bad about killing people. She is like a PETA vegetarian, who can only eat meat. And you thought your life sucked.
Hobbies: Did we mention the fact that she likes to eat human brains? Well, let me restate that - this is your brain; and this is your brain being eaten by Julie. Any questions?
Pet Peeves: Cheap sugar coated snacks, donuts and other snacks that don’t contain human brain tissue.
1) The pain helps. The pain makes the hunger go away.
2) I’m getting hungry again.
3) Curt, help me. Are you gonna tie me up please?
Total Estimated Power Rating: 9
2 Intellect Points + 4 Base Physical Strength Points +1 Weapon Points for various sharp and blunt objects in her possession + 1 Shock Point + 1 Point for Relative Immortality
Danger Level: Medium. Sure, she is a brain-eating zombie, but she isn’t that bad really. As long as she is nowhere near you that is.
Identification: If you are talking to someone whose piercing hobby is clearly getting a little out of hand, you might be talking to Julie. If this someone is clearly distracted by something, and at the same time is constantly looking at your skull with an enthusiasm of a puppy in a dog food commercial, you might consider getting the hell out.
How to Avoid: Julie is not a very sociable individual ever since she developed taste for brains, and encountering her in public places is very unlikely.
Suggested Actions in Case of Encounter: Cover your skull with a hard to break object and run. She might be all chatty and seem almost normal right now, but a few seconds later she might be chowing down on your brains. If this warning came too late and your brains are in fact being consumed by Julie at this very moment, please take some comfort in the fact that Julie will surely regret killing you later... after she stuffs herself with your grey matter.
Suggested Killing Techniques: The Living Dead cannot be killed. Your best hope is that the military would capture her and turn her into a cyborg zombie, that they themselves would not be able to control. Which means there is no hope really. Start smoking and drinking today.
