- The earlier known type of Zombie was created through the powers of Voodoo, turning a man into a slave of a Bokor.
- Then came the Undead Zombie, a violent, remorseless being resurrected from the dead, with an overwhelming desire to consume the flesh of the living.
- A yet later kind was one similar to the Undead variety, but from a biological source, normally viral, that would remove the higher brain functions of an organism and again force them to eat flesh. These tended to be much swifter than their undead counterparts.
The term Zombie was also as an insult; calling someone a zombie implied that they were mindless, monstrous freaks.
