* CompleteMonster: [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Vaughn Du Clark]] is the BigBad of Season 2, despite coming across as an [[BewareTheSillyOnes absent-minded goofball]]. He is indirectly behind the zombie outbreak because the unsafe chemicals in his company’s energy drink is one of the causes of zombieism. Vaughn does not care that the zombies remain sentient, he only cares about how this news will affect his profit. He coerces Major, who can sense zombies, into acting as his hitman in eliminating them by threatening Major’s LoveInterest, Liv. Incapable of taking any criticism, Vaughn frequently scours the internet for negative comments about his company and has the posters killed. When a zombie breaks free in his lab, Vaughn [[DirtyCoward flees the scene]], abandoning his own daughter to get infected. When he discovers that Major has been hiding the zombies he hunted down instead of killing them, Vaughn locates them and kidnaps them all, keeping them in his lab to test cures for zombieism. All the tests [[spoiler:fail and the zombies are turned into mindless, ravenous beasts]]. Vaughn laughs at [[TheHeroine Liv]] when she discovers that one of the [[spoiler:mindless zombies was her boyfriend and laughs as she’s forced to kill her lover]]. Even as his company is [[spoiler:overrun by zombies and hundreds of his employees are killed]], Vaughn can only think of [[ItsAllAboutMe what this means for his publicity and finances]].

* CompleteMonster: [[SmugSnake Vaughn Du Clark]], the BigBad of season 2, was indirectly responsible for the zombie outbreak in the series due to the chemicals in [[CorruptCorporateExecutive his]] company's energy drink. When word gets out that his drink, Max Rager, has deadly side effects, he covers this up, only caring about the implications it would have on his company's profits. Upon finding out that his drink causes people to turn into zombies, Vaughn orders Major to hunt down and kill all known zombies to keep matters quiet, and threaten to kill his LoveInterest, [[TheProtagonist Liv]], if Major doesn't comply. [[EvilIsPetty Unable to handle criticism]], Vaughn has people who give negative feedback on his product, even those who make obscure internet comments, hunted down and killed. At first, it seems that that Vaughn's daughter, Rita, is his MoralityPet, but when a zombie in his custody broke free, he [[spoiler:left Rita for dead, only for her to become a zombie too, forcing her to remain detained]] in his company's basement laboratory afterwards. During the season finale, Vaughn finds out that Major was only hiding the zombies he ordered dead and responds by locating the warehouse they are hidden in and takes them to Max Rager labs to test cure prototypes on them, all of which fail and turn the zombies feral. When the heroes infiltrate his lab, Vaughn unleashes the feral zombies on them and delights that one of them turns out to be [[spoiler:Liv's boyfriend, Drake]], who she's forced to kill as he watches it all play out. When his feral zombies fail him, Vaughn decides to unleash a [[DeadlyGas poisonous gas]] on them, the remaining sapient zombies, and even [[spoiler:Rita, after claiming to be remorseful for letting her get zombified]].
