15: Zomb-Poc Survival Guide
A Zombie, in its broadest sense, is a person who has lost his or her sense of self-awareness and identity, and cares only for the destruction (and often consumption) of any human around, no matter what the circumstances, or cost to his or her self. They make up for this loss of intelligence in sheer numbers, as the state of 'Zombieism' is almost always contagious, and spread virulently, at a devastating cost to surrounding society. Technically speaking, true zombies are always dead, and re-animated.
The Generic Zombie, is a person who has been killed and reanimated, but not always due to a virus. They are usually aggressive. They can be curious, but disorientated, and at a loss to fully understand their environment. For the most part, they are usually resistant to damage and rot despite their undead state. Their most notable trait is their hunger for living flesh. Walking Zombies (colloquially known as Walkers) are basically synonymous with generic zombies. They may not be immediately threatening, but they tend to attack in groups, and have astounding durability which makes them a major threat to humans.
Zombies that have the ability to run at a full sprint. This ability separates them from Generic Zombies so much that people disagree on whether they should even be considered Zombies at all. Fast Infected quickly gain ground on survivors and bring them down, attacking them in a frenzied manner. A survivor should never try to outrun the Runners, since they do not tire like humans do. Runners sometimes are newly-made zombies that have not begun the process of decaying yet, and therefore still have most human capabilities. The only way to stop them from running is to disable their legs through severing large muscle groups, major bones, or completely severing their legs. Other than that, the only other way is to outright eliminate them.
The resurrected dead by a witch doctor who are forced to do the bidding of the resurrector. They shouldn't be a threat since they typically do not have the need to feed on human flesh. They are considered the progenitors of the Zombie "Species". Under rare circumstances, their condition may be curable, unlike the vast majority of Zombies.
