Story

In the year 2015, a virus broke out among the human race, known as Solanum.

Solanum began as a small outbreak in North Korea.
Luckily, the situation was well maintained, and the virus soon died out.
Scientists led under Jan Vanderhaven extensively researched the virus and found many astonishing facts about it.
They found that Solanum works by traveling through the bloodstream, from the initial point of entry to the brain. The virus seems to use cells of the frontal lobe for replication, later destroying them in the process. During this time, all bodily functions cease, causing the victim to be rendered dead. Once the virus spreads across the entirety of the brain, the virus gains full control of the human body. With this mutation ends all normal human necessities, including food, water, and oxygen. With most organs completely shut down, this new organism is a zombie, a member of the living dead.
The virus is spread through blood and saliva of a zombie and human. A zombie bite, injection of zombie blood, or spitting into the mouth of a human will cause infection.
Zombies are known to notoriously desire human brains. While this is known to be true, it is found that brains serve as no nutritional sustenance for zombies.
Zombies are exceedingly dim. They do not possess the knowledge required to climb ladders, swim, or even run. However, they do retain a few advantages over the living. In safe situations, only a small percentage of muscle fibers in the human body are activated at a time. However, in a zombie body, all fibers are used to perform every task, more than quadrupling their strength over humans. Additionally, humans have, overtime, relied almost purely on their sight and have deteriorated their other senses. Zombies, on the other hand, have done no such thing. The zombie’s five senses are balanced, decreasing their vision, but greatly increasing hearing and smelling. It is unknown if they also have a heightened sense of feeling and tasting, but it is probable.
Killing a zombie can only be done by destruction of its brain. Since the virus inhibits only the brain of the victim, destroying the brain will destroy the virus. Further research has found that zombies uphold no more resilience than a human, so anything that can crack human skull will kill a zombie.
Several months after research began, one scientist was mysteriously infected with Solanum. Soon, the entire complex was full of mindless zombies. It later spread across the continent. Several boatmen fled across the ocean, only to later find that one person there was infected. Just as the zombie apocalypse is touching other continents across the globe is where our story begins.

Characters

Name: Superalls
Occupation: Spy agent
Skills: Fighting
Description: Superalls is a top secret agent who is has been very trained to do his work, which he does with excellence. His specialty is combos in fights. Watch out! He is very fast and slick, and he can scoop from behind you and catch you. Superalls has a special move he uses when he feels really offended, or hurt. It’s called the swoop smash, but I won’t tell you what it does.

Name: Frappe
Occupation: Student
Skills: Melee combat, smarts, and scavenging
Description: Frappe is a witty, strong white male that is uncommonly outsmarted. He has anger issues which makes him learn better fighting techniques. He always looks at the little details, up to the obvious of things. Be careful hiding things from him, since he can spot everything and intends only to keep people safe. He’s always quick on his feet and could know where to run if blocked off. He’s also VERY fast, he is one of the fastest kids in his school. Lastly he can be very nice, unless you get on his bad side.

Name:Psi
Occupation: Traveler
Skills: Firearms, Lockpicking, Problem-solving
Description: A generally chatty and agreeable guy, moseying on through these final days have been daunting, though Psi’s clever (and frankly out-of-the-box) thinking has gotten him out of many a jam. A grand team member, fair, serious and just, he rather find a cure than bash zombies… But he will if need be.

Name:Mysterious Figure
Occupation: Drug dealer and pimp
Skills: Making and selling drugs; Bitch slapping
Description: I will let you have from the finest of drugs. All for a small price. Mushrooms? Meth? Cocaine? Pot? Crack? All here; Also good with bitches.

Name: Kirb
Occupation: Dentist
Skills: medical assistance, dental, stealth
Description: A scrawny guy who doesn’t seem to eat much, yet is agile on his toes. His job gives him good hand eye coordination and dexterity. He talks alot when around people he feels close to. Otherwise, he is quiet.

Because there’s a huge difference between “CYOA” and “CYOP”.
