Type: The undead
There are many versions of zombies all around the world. The goddess Ishtar allowed the dead to ‘rise and eat the living’ as an act of revenge against the hero Gilgamesh. In France during the Middle Ages, it was believed that a person who was murdered might rise from the grave to avenge the crime. In England, a historian described ‘revenants’, or reanimated corpses, walking through villages at night spreading diseases and killing anyone they met.
