Gphage Zombies are creatures reanimated after brain death by a virulent mutegenic Viral weapon. G-Phage Zombies are violent cannibalistic psychopaths, capable of increadable feats of strength and endurance. while stumbling and slow when not actively attacking they are capable of burst of speed and strength, that are truly inhuman. G-phage zombies lack the mental aptittude for tool use above primative clubs and knives, they can not plan or use even simple devices, such as door locks and elevator contols, though they will lash out blindly at controls and devices out of barely recalled memories , hich will sometimes allow them to open a door or operate a simple swuitch entirely by accident. most of the time when a barrier such as a door window or wall obstructs their path they blindly smash and pound at it until they give up, hours later, or destroy the object. G-pahge zombies lack all but basic verbal skills and may moan or mutter incoherently or might call out names and words that were important to them before infection. G-phage zombies do repond to strong emotional bonds from formaer lives but general they only respond to negitive emotions and then only with insane violence
