  • All Deaths Final: Not for these guys!
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Davey and Chainey.
  • I Am A Humanitarian: All Zombies by default.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: There are two types: the typical Romero zombies (called 'Mindless') and the zombies that can think (called 'Awares').
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars
    • Scars Are Forever: Let's see:
      • Chainey has a scar on his left cheek and hand. Also a big gash at the back of his skull.
      • Davey has a few on his face, as well as a large Y-shaped one which he received at the hands of Marianne.
      • Owen: LOTS! Several on both his hands (looks like he's wearing hobo gloves. He's not), one around his neck, and one across his cheekbones. It's been suggested that these are self-inflicted . As of Chapter 10: Avalanche, he's probably got more now thanks to Davey.

  • Knight Templar Mad Scientist: She see nothing wrong with dissecting an aware (while they're fully conscious).
  • Terms of Endangerment: Davey meets the doctor who dissected him when he was freshly undead. She calls him "sweetheart" and says "I missed you terribly". Davey is less than civil.

  • Adorkable
  • Break the Cutie: Constant stalking and tormenting via Owen wore poor PJ down. Finding out Davey has become a zombie seems to have been the last straw.
