Blaine's businesses

Meat Cute

    Julien 

Julien "Candyman" DuPont

Played By: Aleks Paunovic

A zombie and brain pusher in Blaine's employ.


  • The Big Guy: Not as big as Cheif from season 2, but the largest guy in season 1, and packing quite a lot of muscle. Major, before finding out about zombies, believes that his size is why he's trafficking human brain.
  • The Dragon: In Season 1 Julien acts as Blaine's most competent and trusted enforcer and is the one used to neutralize Major when he becomes a problem. At the end of the season, he's also the last of Blaine's zombies killed before he attacks Major himself.
  • Genius Bruiser: 'Genius' might be stretching it, but he avoids being Dumb Muscle, as seen by how he handles Major's attempts at investigating him.
  • Insert Grenade Here: Major kills him by throwing a grenade into the Meat Cute's freezer, killing him instantly.
  • Post-Modern Magik: Tans extensively and dyes his hair black to hide the fact he's a zombie.
  • The Red Baron: "The Candy Man". Given he wasn't unfrozen until after Blaine had killed the kids Major knew, its likely this name was originally referring to Blaine until Major and Julien crossed paths.

    Luta 

Luta

Played By: Darryl Quon

One of Blaine's minions at Meat Cute. His mistakes help Major realize the truth about Seattle's zombie populace.


  • Butt-Monkey: He gets robbed by Major, stabbed in the throat by Blaine, and then killed when Major locks him in a freezer and shoots him in the face.

    Cissie 

Cissie

Played By: Tanja Dixon-Warren

The chef at Meat Cute.


  • I Surrender, Suckers: She begs Major for mercy and he agrees to let her leave unharmed. Then she tries to kill him with a cleaver, and he throws her into a meat slicer.
  • Supreme Chef: Brought on to create brain delicacies for zombies.

    Davis and Dante 

Martin Davis and Dante

Played By: Frank Ferrucci (Martin Davis) and Sean Millington (Dante)

Two delivery drivers working for Blaine's Meat Cute operation.


  • Bullying a Dragon: Their boss turned a bunch of people into zombies, but they still thought they could start up a new business and steal all his customers. When Blaine found out, he shot them both.
  • Start My Own: They try to set up their own brain supply operation, figuring that they can undercut Blaine's exorbitant prices.

Shady Plots Funeral Home

    Chief 

Chief

Played By: Andre Tricoteux

    Candy 

Candy Baker

Played By: Carrie Anne Fleming

A woman working for Blaine. Her responsibilities include doing his makeup so he doesn't look like a zombie when out in public. Later, after Blaine opens a bar, she becomes the madame of the bar's zombie brothel.


  • And Then John Was a Zombie: Is accidentally turned into one after Blaine and her have sex while he was in the process of reverting back to Zombie'ism.
  • Dumb Blonde: She isn't the brightest bulb in the box.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: First appeared hosting a bar trivia contest in Season 1 before aligning with Blaine in Season 2.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After several seasons of having her life upended by Blaine, she manages to steal a zombie cure and use one of Blaine's smugglers to escape the city as a living human.

    Speedy Pete 

Speedy Pete

Played By: Paul Anthony

A drug dealer working for Blaine.


  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Blaine has him enlist some local rich, white kids as subordinate drug dealers. Pete thinks this is so he can set up his own operation, but in reality it's just because Blaine knows Stacey Boss will kill them and thus provide a pretext for the District Attorney's office to go after him. Once Pete learns his drug dealers have been killed, he calls Blaine and begs for help, but Blaine just lets Pete be killed by Boss's goons since he's of no more use.

Scratching Post

    Tanner 

Tanner

Played By: Nathan Barrett

A college student recruited by Don E to help sell brains.


  • Early-Bird Cameo: Makes brief appearances in other cases involving drug dealing before Don E recruits him and turns him into a zombie.
  • Killed Off for Real: Blaine murders him after he throws out the last four zombie cures.

    Dino 

Dino

Played By: Ryan Jefferson Booth

One of Angus' minions. He signs on with Blaine after Blaine traps Angus in a well.


  • Losing Your Head: He's eventually decapitated by Don E. Of course, being a zombie, this doesn't actually kill him.
  • Professional Killer: His job was initially to kill people and collect their brains for zombies to eat. It's unknown if he carries out this role once Blaine takes over the Scratching Post; as it's never mentioned and he's mostly seen lounging around the bar unpacking crates of brains and overseeing the deliveries.
  • Tap on the Head: Played straight. Angus smashes his head with a hammer, but he's back up and well enough to help Blaine kill people three episodes later.

    Bubba 

Bubba

Played by: Artine Tony Browne

A human smuggler working for Blaine.


  • Would Hurt a Child: His job eventually becomes abducting teenagers with Freylich Syndrome and smuggling them into the city so Blaine can sell their brains.

Romero's

    Dalton Earl Duke 

Dalton Earl Duke

Played By: Ryan Devlin

A brain dealer who buys brains from the victims of murderous 'coyotes' and then sells those brains to restaurants and bars that serve zombies. He later switches to selling drugs, such as hallucinogenic mushrooms.


  • Traveling Salesman: He is well-dressed, carries his goods (e.g. brains) in a big briefcase, and goes from client to client vending his product.

    Carl 

"Crybaby" Carl

Played By: Nemo Cartwright

Blaine's new muscle after he gets rid of Dino.


  • Political Correctness Gone Mad: He's okay with murdering people, but draws the line at making fun of women for having large breasts. He ultimately murders a guy for making fun of his wife's appearance and thinks he was justified because his victim was insulting a woman.
  • The Sociopath: Explicitly stated by Don E to be one. His grin when he's ordered to kill Casper is indicative of this as well.

Max Rager

    Vaughn 

Vaughn Du Clark

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/duclark_vaughn.jpg
"We played a big part in creating this problem. And we are gonna be very aggressive in cleaning it up."
Played By: Steven Weber

CEO of Max Rager, an energy drink company currently under investigation for its questionably safe product.


  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: He desperately begs Major to save him in the Season 2 finale. It doesn't work.
  • An Ax To Grind: Painfully subverted in the Season 2 finale. Trapped in an elevator and about to be killed by his daughter, Major hands him a fire ax to give him a chance of survival. He doesn't last long.
  • Asshole Victim: No one will miss him.
  • Bad Boss: He's about as easy to work for as any psychotic CEO experimenting with zombies; he endangers his employees frequently and has them killed on a whim.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He comes across as a little scatter-brained, has a goofy sense of humor and is into weird New Age rituals. However, when he becomes truly angry, he shows his terrifying true colors.
  • Big Bad: After being the Greater-Scope Villain for Season 1, he steps up as the main antagonist of Season 2. The majority of horrible events that occur can be traced back to him in some way, save for the events caused by Mr. Boss.
  • The Casanova: Vaughn enjoys having sex with other men's wives.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: He's the CEO of Max Rager and a remorseless murderer who lacks the morals God gave a tree frog.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He has a very dry, understated sense of humor that comes across as downright passive-aggressive.
  • Death by Irony: He is killed and eaten by his daughter, Rita, who he left to die earlier and then later tried to kill her.
  • Devoured by the Horde: Of zombie variant.
  • Dirty Coward: When a zombie in the Max Rager secret basement escapes, Vaughn runs for the elevator and shuts it... before his own daughter can get to safety.
  • Dirty Old Man: As noted above, he sleeps around a lot, makes implied sexual advances towards Liv, and even tries spanking Rita when she's leaning over. The latter example is particularly gross since we learn a few episodes later that she's his daughter.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: A blogger in Thailand slams Max Rager, a comment that gets only 11 views. Vaughn has him killed in a traffic accident. From halfway around the world. On video. For an online slam.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: After he leaves Rita to die, Vaughn returns to his office and shakily pours himself a drink.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He does seem to care about his daughter to an extent; when she's hurt by Liv, he freaks out and screams at Major. It's later subverted when he leaves her to die, although he's clearly shaken and ashamed of his actions, then completely averted later when, after fully going off the deep-end, retorts to Rita's question on if he ever really cared about her by yelling at her for 'making it all about her'.
  • Evil Is Petty: Sure, he's an incredibly rich and powerful Corrupt Corporate Executive who aims to make untold millions from his schemes... but he'll still make time to read negative customer reviews of his products online and fume over each and every one them, and later arranging for one of the reviewers to be killed. Even Rita is exasperated at what a waste of time and energy it is.
  • Evil Old Folks: Downplayed as he's more middle-aged but he's significantly older than the main cast and a complete bastard.
  • Fatal Flaw: Lampshaded by Rita, he tends to easily lower his guard when around people capable of praising him.
    Rita: "Vaughn DuClark, smartest man in the world until you stroke his ego. Then he is like all the rest."
  • Faux Affably Evil: Sure, he might be the neglectful and horribly corrupt head of a corporation whose tainted drinks caused both numerous deaths and certain people to develop zombie-ism, but doesn't he just seem like the type of guy you could go bowling with?
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Of Season 1; He is indirectly responsible for all the major events of the series, but unlike Blaine doesn't take any personal action against the heroes. The only exception is when the info that Max Rager has caused numerous psychotic breakdowns and he sends a hitman to recover the flash drive containing it.
  • Impaled Palm: Major shoots Vaughn through the hand when he tries to kill Major and Rita.
  • It's All About Me: Lives this trope to an extreme degree, not caring even about his own daughter as long as he gets what he wants. Nothing sums it up more than in the season 2 finale when he rants about the zombies escaping to the zombified Rita.
    Rita: Did you ever care about me?
    Vaughn: Do you hear yourself? (Going berserk) DO YOU HEAR YOURSELF!?! Making this moment about you! Cause I'm the one who stands to lose a billion dollars tonight and 100 employees! You think Twitter is going to be kind tonight?
  • Jerkass: He continually drifts between Faux Affably Evil and acting like a complete and utter tool.
  • Karmic Death: After leaving Rita to die in a previous episode, Vaughn gets trapped in the exact same elevator by Major, getting messily devoured by Rita.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Vaughn has the reach and the will to impact hundreds of lives, and does so.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Vaughn takes the reigns as the biggest threat in Season 2 but his plot to push his dangerous energy drink and make billions is a feat of his brains and resources, the one time he handles a weapon himself he dies pathetically against his zombified daughter.
  • Offing the Offspring: Or at least tried to.
  • Patricide: Vaughn's brains are messily devoured by his daughter Rita.
  • Papa Wolf: Zigzagged. When Rita is injured by Liv, he freaks out and goes into a rage. However, he later shows that he's a coward, and leaves her to die when a zombie breaks out of his lab, though she survives (but gets infected). Later he's willing to invest a lot of money and research into finding a cure for her, but only once his other problems are resolved. And then that goes out the window, when he tries to kill her along with Liv and Major.
  • Sanity Slippage: As his plans become grander and grander, his mind goes farther and farther into mania. When everything he built falls apart within minutes after the Zombie Massacre that occurs during his kick-off party in Salvation Army, his mind snaps, and he pretty much gives in completely to his growing madness.
  • Smug Snake: Vaughn clearly thinks that he's a mastermind who everyone is naturally in awe of. In reality, while he's certainly smarter than he looks, he's decidedly sloppy, over-confident and solves most of his problems by throwing money at them rather than by any particular brilliance.
  • The Sociopath: Vaughn is entirely concerned with himself, possesses superficial charm and kills without hesitation.
  • The Unfettered: He will do anything to develop his energy drinks and cover up their side effects.
  • Visionary Villain: The guy sure has grandiose ambitions for a beverage CEO - best summed up in his quote "I will be to serotonin what Milton Hershey was to chocolate."
  • Villain with Good Publicity: And he's desperate to keep it that way. Fortunately no longer the case as of the first season finale, although his company is still doing well as of Season 2 and he seems to still hold some public sway.
  • Villainous Breakdown: In the Season 2 finale. He'd shown traces of this but, when his launch party is ruined and he is about to have Major and Rita killed, he really goes off the deep end with all traces of his usual oily superficial charm gone. Then there's his breakdown when he's trapped in the elevator with his own zombies coming for him.

    Rita 

Rita Du Clark (also known as Gilda)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gilda19.jpg
"So, how many zombies removals can I put you down for this week?"
Played By: Leanne Lapp

Vaughn's assistant who is tasked with spying on Liv while posing as her roommate.


  • And Then John Was a Zombie: The escape of a Romero Zombie leads to her being scratched and turning.
  • Attractive Zombie: She may be just as much of a bitch as before, but the Zombieism hasn't detracted from her looks.
  • Bastard Bastard: She is Vaughn Du Clark's daughter, born from an affair.
    Vaughn: If it weren't for my habit of sleeping with other men's wives, you wouldn't exist.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Doesn't come off as too nice even when she's moonlighting as Liv's roomie, but she's playing this card with Liv, which Liv is more susceptible to since there are no other ladies for Liv to interact with for a significant length of time.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Major shoots her when she tries to attack Liv and Clive.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Delivers some of the best lines in the series in a cast full of snarkers.
  • Evil Redhead: Red-headed and a highly competent henchwoman for Vaughn and Max Rager.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She had to convince her father to use Major as a human Zombie detector instead of his original plan, to invite everyone on the list, even the humans, to a free cruise, then scuttle the ship.
    Rita: (to Major) Like it or not, you're saving lives.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She's a rather cold and ruthless individual, but she's also excellent at coming across as trustworthy and innocent; she knows how to be disarmingly personable.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She's noticeably irked at the idea of Major breaking off their status as sex buddies in favour of getting back together with Liv.
  • The Mole: She becomes Liv's new roommate to keep an eye on her and be within killing distance at all times.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's sinfully sexy and has the wardrobe to show that fact off.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Kills her father during the Season 2 finale, eating his brains.
  • Shout-Out: Her real name is Rita and she goes by the alias of Gilda. This is a shout out to actress Rita Hayworth and her most famous role as the title character in Gilda.
  • Snark-to-Snark Combat: Frequently, with Vaughn. Because he's her father and they have differing ideas of how to deal with Max Rager's scams.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: She doesn't think that zombies are human beings anymore, and is indifferent to Major's moral dilemma in killing zombies for Max Rager.

    Janko 

Janko

Played By: Colin Lawrence

An ex-soldier, who works as Vaughn du Clark's personal bodyguard and hitman.


    Sebastian 

Sebastian Meyer

Played By: Matthew MacCaull

A wet works man for Max Rager, who kills off whistleblowers and anyone else who is in the way.


  • Ax-Crazy: He really enjoys his job, and when Liv survives his attack, he's delighted to have someone to gloat to as he disposes of another body.
  • Back from the Dead: It looked like he got gibbed when Liv chopped him with the boat motor, but because he tasted some of Liv's blood, he's now a zombie.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He cares deeply for his Aunt.
  • Expy: Becomes one of sorts to the killer from I Know What You Did Last Summer.
  • He Knows Too Much: He kills the one girl who knows about the memo stating that Max Rager is a Psycho Serum, then tries to kill Liv for not only finding her for him, but for also learning all about it.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Liv stabs him in the brain during their fight.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: He confesses to killing his aunt during a fit of hunger, and she was like a mother to him.
  • Rasputinian Death: The dude was shredded by a boat, hit by a car, and finally stabbed in the head by Liv.

  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Barely introduced before being killed off and replaced by Holland.

    Holland 

Doctor Holland

Played By: Brian Markinson

A scientist that Vaughn Du Clark brings in to Max Rager to lead the zombie research division. He is hired after Sebastian brutally beat the previous head zombie researcher to death.


    Eleanor 

Doctor Eleanor Cash

Played By: Karin Konoval

A scientist at Max Rager working under the name of "Dr. Irving" to hide her past, in which she was found responsible for a research accident which disfigured a test subject. Cash is promoted to head of the zombie research division after Holland is turned into a feral zombie in a lab accident.

Of the four scientists who lead Max Rager's zombie research division in succession, she is the only one not to be killed by a zombie.


  • The Bus Came Back: A posthumous version. She appears in an early season 2 episode as a Max Rager scientist, then reappears much later as a corpse for Liv and Clive to investigate.
  • Karmic Death: Her research disfigured a test subject. The subject's sister then burned her face off, both disfiguring and killing her.

    Lockett 

Doctor Lockett

Played By: Chris Shields

A scientist at Max Rager who is promoted to head of the zombie research division. Like both of his predecessors, he is promoted following the death of the last scientist to hold the position.


  • Karmic Death: He conducted monstrously unethical experiments on Max Rager zombies, and was ultimately killed by one of said zombies.
  • The Stool Pigeon: Lockett pretends to be one, telling Major that he's going to reveal the truth of Max Rager's zombie experiments to the world. This turns out to be a test of Major's loyalty, which Major passes when he turns Lockett in to Vaughn.

    Rob Thomas 

Rob Thomas

Played By: Rob Thomas

A musician hired by Max Rager to play at a staff party.


  • As Himself: Rob Thomas (the musician) plays Rob Thomas (a musician).

Boss's crime ring

    Mr. Boss 

Stacey Boss

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/boss_stacey_6.jpg
"I own this city. So, let's take our victory lap."
Played By: Eddie Jemison

A crime lord that controls much of the utopium trade. He has also bribed a great deal of Seattle's public servants.


  • The Dreaded: Absolutely everybody is terrified of him, right down to their bones. Even when offered lower sentences, Utopium dealers would rather stay in jail than draw his wrath. Even the arrogant Blaine can barely contain his fear of him during a face-to-face.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He's distraught by the death of his nephew and his first thought is to call his sister.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Mr. Boss is very genial and a pleasant conversationalist, despite having a reputation for ruthlessness.
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": He is the Boss of Seattle's drug ring, thus making his name appropriate.
  • Putona Bus: He's said to have left the country after the second season finale.
  • The Bus Came Back: He comes back mid way through the third season to exact revenge on Blaine, though he is ultimately intimidated into his service.
  • Sadistic Choice: He seems to have a penchant for these, gleefully describing such a situation.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: He has a very gentle, unassuming voice for a feared drug lord.
  • They Look Just Like Everyone Else!: Boss has a rather innocuous, even nebbishy appearance. His cover is as an accountant, and he fits right in.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: He acts like the villain in a gritty Criminal Procedural and he would be very effective and terrifying as one too. Unfortunately for him, this is a sci-fi/horror show, and some of those enemies he had so confidently whacked are not as dead as he thinks they are.

    Casper 

Casper Cotter

Played By: Tony Alcantar

Boss's money launderer.


     Ink 

Ink

Played By: Nick Hunnings

Mr. Boss's machete-wielding nephew.


  • Mugging the Monster: He and his flunkies are sent to kill Baracus in order to stop the city's investigation into Boss's crime ring. Unfortunately, Baracus is a zombie and is easily able to slaughter Ink and his goons.

A bookie working for Boss.


  • Call-Back: He appears in Season 2, but is referenced much later in Season 4 when Blaine is describing criminals to Chase Graves.

    Kenny and Howard 

Kenny and Howard

Played By: Bradley Stryker (Kenny) and Jason Simpson (Howard)

"There's only one option: bullet to the head."
Played By: Andrew Caldwell

A conspiracy theorist who was Properly Paranoid about the existence of zombies.


  • And Then John Was a Zombie: His fate at the end of "Conspiracy Weary".
  • Disc-One Final Boss: The leader of the anti-zombie movement, Johns is set up to be a major antagonist and killer of Wally and his family. It's revealed that Carey was responsible and Johns is killed an episode before the second half of the two-part finale.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Cannot bring himself to kill Ravi, when Ravi tries to stop him from using Don E. Instead he pistol whips him into submission.
  • Fantastic Racism: After his brother's death he believes all zombies to be abominations and wants to exterminate them, regardless of their individual morality.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: His intentions seem to be to protect the world because he genuinely thinks all zombies are bad and unable to be humans, however, the more he dwells in zombie hunting, the more he is willing to make awful things. When he accidentally hits Justin with his truck he seems disturbed for a moment, while after kidnapping Don E. he seems willing to kill Ravi when he gets in the way. In a more literal sense, his fight against zombies ends with him becoming a zombie as well.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: After looking at Clive with disdain he sees Liv's appearance and smugly says "white power". As the line would imply, he's soon revealed to be a paranoid, violent redneck out to cause mayhem.
  • Properly Paranoid: He is entirely correct about the existence of zombies, but he is in the wrong that zombies have no intention of start the apocalypse and work even harder than him to stop it. Downplayed however, on the sense that zombies have as little interest in a zombie apocalypse as him, if not more and are seeking ways to live peacefully with humans.
  • Red Herring: He really had nothing to do with the Tuttle-Reid murders. He intended to kill them, but got beat to the punch by someone else, who killed them under the orders of Carey Gold.
  • Smarter Than You Look: A rambling, racist, conspiracy theorist, Harley comes across as a stupid, prejudiced man until he's able to outmaneuver and kill many Filmore Graves operatives, hinting that there's a lot more thoughtfulness underneath than is usually let on.
  • Suicide Attack: His final move is to explode himself in a party full of the Fillmore Graves zombie mercenaries.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Harley just wants to protect humanity from what he sees as an unstoppable threat.
  • You Killed My Father: His brother died at the hands of zombies on the Super Max Massacre, so he is dedicating himself to hunt zombies down.

    Bo 

Bo Johns

Played By: James Pizzinato

One of Harley's brothers. Bo is a paranoid man who sees conspiracies everywhere. He's also a fierce advocate of his brother's crusade to expose and exterminate Seattle's zombie population.


  • Conspiracy Theorist: Believes that zombies were sent to Seattle by the Shah of Iran, among other things.

    Billy 

Billy Cook

Played By: Keith Dallas

A former Max Rager security guard until he saw a hoard of zombies devouring members of the staff. He fled Max Rager and later fell in with Harley's group.


  • Spanner in the Works: When he goes on a radio broadcast and tells the world that zombies exist, he inadvertently spurs on Harley Johns and his zombie 'truthers,' which causes problems for the rest of the cast.

    Huntsman 

Mr. Huntsman

Played By: Peter Kelamis

A neighbor of the Tuttle-Reids and an initial suspect in their murders. Huntsman was innocent of those killings, but he did join Harley Johns' group of people seeking to find and exterminate all zombies in Seattle.


  • Karmic Death: He helped Harley in his crusade to exterminate all zombies—and was ultimately killed by a zombified Harley.

Carey Gold's conspiracy

     Carey 

     James 

James Weckler

Played By: Gordon Michael Woolvett

A small-time criminal who was forced to murder the dominatrix Roxanne Green.


  • Boxed Crook: He didn't want to kill Green, but Gold forced him to do so by telling Weckler that she would only supply Tatum with brains if he, James, followed her orders.
  • Healthcare Motivation: He kills Green so that his daughter can get the brains she needs.

    Tatum 

Tatum Weckler

Played By: Ava Frye

  • In the Back: How she shoots Katty with a tranquilizer rifle.
  • Transhuman Treachery: She becomes hostile to humans after becoming a zombie, and even mocks Liv for thinking she can stop the tainted vaccines that will convert thousands of humans into zombies.

Cult of Brother Love

     Brother Love 

See Angus's entry under I Zombie Main Characters.

Tucker Fritz

Played By: Jaren Brandt Bartlett

A former Dead-Ender who was scratched by Jordan. Despising zombies but too scared to kill himself, he joined the cult to help him get revenge on Fillmore-Graves.


  • Heroic Suicide: He considered this after being scratched (and was actively pushed to do it by his 'friend' Mace), but ultimately couldn't go through with this.
  • Zombie Infectee: Was scratched by Jordan and became one of these.

    Tim 

Tim Timmerson

Played By: Keenan Tracey

A zombie-supremacist whom Liv meets and briefly falls in love with.


  • Fail O Sucky Name: Liv notes that his full name, Tim Timmerson, sounds stupid.
  • Transhuman Treachery: He argues that zombies are at a higher evolutionary level than humans and thus humans should serve as food sources for zombies.

Dead-Enders

    Mace 

Mace Diller

Played By: Nick Heffelfinger

A talkative member of the Dead-Enders.


  • Killed Off for Real: After Angus gives a speech inciting zombies to rise up against humans, Mace goes on a suicide mission to assassinate Angus. It fails, and Angus's cult slaughters him.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: He spends a lot of time sexually harassing Jordan.
  • Staging an Intervention: A very dark version of this. After Tucker becomes a zombie, he's the only member of his group to talk to him, but then he gives Tucker a gun and tries to talk him into killing himself rather than 'living' as a zombie.

    Reid 

Reid Sackman

Played By: Nathaniel Vass

Another member of the Dead-Enders.
