Traits of a classic Zombie
Here are some of the traits that characterize a zombie:
A body comprised of a deceased human body that has subsequently reanimated, usually because of a viral infection incurred while the body was still living
Reduced speed of movement relative to normal humans (however, some recent theatrical depictions of zombies portray them as moving supernaturally fast)
Increased endurance relative to normal humans; some sources attribute this to removal of normal neurological limits to muscle endurance (e.g., Golgi tendon reflex).
Profoundly reduced or absent cognitive function.
An insatiable and endless desire to consume living animal flesh, usually human, sometimes favoring brains.
Lack of normal human biological functions such as sleep, digestion, sexual function, or cardiac function.
Lack of normal human biological requirements such as conventional food, sleep, or even oxygen.
Supernatural resistance or immunity to traumatic injury of any part of the body except for the brain.
Vulnerable only to attacks that remove the head or destroy the brain.
Has high aggression and little intelligence and has the some of the traits of a rabid person.
Ignores or is oblivious of fellow zombies.
