The Best of 2015: Z Nation A to Z
Do you know your Z Nation alphabet? Here's the world of the zombie apocalpyse, from A to Z.
- A is for Addy
Ex-Sister of Mercy and morning star-wielding zombie killer.
- B is for Brett
This yahoo kidnapped Murphy and forced him to assist in a massive Oxycontin heist at Mesa Pharmaceuticals. Brett's no longer with us.
- C is for Citizen Z
PFC Simon Cruller is the lone survivor of the Northern Lights listening post. He's something of a guardian angel to the survivors, when he's not being attacked by Z's himself.
- D is for Doc
He's not really a doctor. But in the zombie apocalypse, you take what you can get.
- E is for Emergency
It's the state of the nation, y'all.
- F is for Forman
The owner of the 'Forman-mobile,' a tricked-out anti-zombie mega-transport that's unfortunately never seen. Forman's no longer with us.
- G is for Garnett
Charles Garnett was the leader of the survivor group transporting Murphy to California until he took a bullet for his package. We miss Garnett.
- H is for Helen
The leader of the Sisters of Mercy, a heavily armed commune that doesn't allow men folk. The Sisters all eventually burned to death or got eaten by the zombie bear they kept in the barn. (Yep.)
- I is for Immune
That's what Murphy is to the zombie virus. It has its pros and cons.
- J is for Jacob
This dum-dum once led the Resurrection Cult, a bunch of crazies that considered the zombie apocalypse to be the second coming of God. He's no longer with us.
- K is for 10K
He calls himself that because that's how many zombies he plans on killing. We're rooting for him to reach his goal.
- L is for Liberty Bell
The pride of Philly fell of a truck and took a few Z's out as it tumbled and crashed down the road. It made us proud to be Americans.
- M is for Murphy
This is the face of the savior of humankind.
- N is for Northern Lights
That's the NSA listening station where Citizen Z is posted. It's located in the Arctic. How'd he get such a sweet gig?
- O is for Operation Bitemark
That's what Citizen Z calls the group of survivors escorting Murphy to California. They change vehicles as often as most pre-apocalypse people changed their underwear.
- P is for Pisay Pao
That's the name of the actress who plays Cassandra, who's now in this rockin' half-human/half-zombie state. She's quite the lethal weapon.
- Q is for Quarantine
That's what this poor bastard who was exposed to the Z virus is in. It doesn't end well.
- R is for Roberta
She's the boss lady of Operation Bitemark ... and an artist with a machete.
- S is for Sketchy
A former colleague of Doc's, Sketchy McClane was the overlord of Fu-Bar, an outpost where one can drink, drink some more, and participate in a zombie-shooting contest.
- T is for Thompson
That's Mack's last name. Betcha didn't know that, eh?
- U is for Undead
That's what the Z's are. It's a problem.
- V is for Vasquez
You'll be getting to know this gentleman throughout Season 2.
- W is for Wilbur
Before he died, Wilbur Grady valiantly attempted to shut down an unstable nuclear reactor at a South Dakota power plant. His former colleague, Homer Stubbins, saw it through.
- X is for X-rated
Murphy opened a zombie stripper club in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Of course he did.
- Y is for Yuri
That's Citizen Z's imaginary friend, a Russian cosmonaut conjured by oxygen deprivation. He likes drinking and playing video games.
- Z is for Zunami
This is something that happens.
