Zombie Class: MERCY
"I’m sorry that I hurt and scared you so.
Let me hold you in my arms, and comfort you while you cry.
Keep still now. Don’t struggle. Don’t run.
I will protect and watch over you, and I will sing to you, you can rest now. It’s all over.
And until you feel no more pain, and you draw your last breath, and until your heart beats for the last time, I will stay and hold your hand and remain with you, until you slip into the lifeless black.”

You can find out more about this Zombie class here. A lot of children tend to fall victim to this class in the wastelands.

lol @ my poetry thats total lamesause haha, I plan on fixing it somewhat, any ideas? This is for The Zombie Hunters webcomic. Been working on this on and off between doing the comic and homework :/ There are some things I like about it and some things I really hate about this picture, but meh.

I was really taken aback by the overwhelming response towards all the zombie classes in TZH, especially towards the Mercy class. I wanted to create an undead type that you felt some sort of compassion for--thats you felt sad for and for it's intended prey.

Hell if i don't go out with a bang let me go out with a mercy.

Man, I love the Mercy class of Zombie.

I've been wanting to start a zombie novel for ages now and this is one of the types of strangely human attributes I've been wanting to give my own string of classes.

You know, compassion, interest, personality.
It's something I've always been disappointing at not seeing in other zombie works.

If I had any money, I'd buy the shit out of this comic.

Holy shit!!!!!! That is me right there!!!! I am also undead I am very similiar to mercy.....I have a mind of my own...I was a former soldier and zombie hunter...thus my name and well......obviously people think I will kill them....I can barely speak straight english.......and I only eat flesh when a psychopath is trying to kill another survivor.....I kill my own kind and I still show signs of passiveness and mercy as well.... And well I even try to show most of the infected to leave the living alone and I never found one that is willing to listen......just always hear them say hunger so I kill my kind as a mysterious stranger and hide my identity.....sometimes....and I even have tons of supplies that I don't need since I am dead already.......I still know how to use weapons and I can even climb on walls and sprint with unbelievable speed.... Not even bullets could stop me.......if there is anyone out there. Please leave the innocent alone
Hell if I had to choose a Zombie Class to be trapped by with no option of a way out I'd definitely choose the Mercy. They watch over you in kindness and give you a fast death with less pain as possible, sure they're still undead know f**k it.

They're a nice Class and you can't help but respect them.

Also i was wondering if there is a way to tell what a person will become if its infected. Or is it just random?
Ashwings Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2012
It's completely random :) More dangerous that way I think!

I really find this idea absoloutely fascinating. Usually zombies are portrayed as just mindless flesh eating monsters with no kindness except possibly killing you quickly. Its a very original idea, for a zombie to be almost caring in the way it dispatches you. I'd love to see more art of that class.

Amazing :) I have to say, I think this is my favourite out of all the zombie classes. I like the warm colours used in this too :)
