Z Nation: A to Z
Monday, September 12, 2016 - 07:00
The third season of Z Nation commences this Friday at 8/7c. 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 Z-whacker-wielding zombie killer.
- B is for Bernadette
She lives in Roswell (or RoZwell, depending on how cute you want to get) and believes in aliens. The truth is out there.
- 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. When last we saw him, he and his dog were wandering the icy hinterlands, probably freezing to death.
- D is for Doc
He's not really a doctor. But in the zombie apocalypse, you take what you can get. And you know what? You'd be glad to get Doc.
- E is for Escorpion
Not to be trifled with. Though he seems to be one of the good guys now. Who knows.
- F is for Forman
Remember this guy? 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 Gideon Gould
He's a world-renowned expert in corporate conflict resolution. Although we don't recommend opening a dialogue with him.
- 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 Lucy
That's Murphy's zombaby. Well, zomtoddler, last we saw her. She's alive (-ish) and well.
- 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 was 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 played Cassandra, who was mercied by 10K after being in an increasingly volatile half-human/half-zombie state. We miss Cassandra.
- 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. We love this guy.
- T is for Thompson
That was Mack's last name. Betcha didn't know that, eh? Anyway, he's dead now.
- U is for Undead
That's what the Z's are. It's a problem.
- V is for Vasquez
One of the shining stars of Season 2. We hope to see him again.
- 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. And it's probably still there.
- 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. He's also imaginary. Did we mention that?
- Z is for Zunami
This is something that happens.
