I'm Mystic Investigations Chief Cryptozoologist. I became interested in Cryptids when I found out my missing father was in fact a Zombie. A pre-zombie who fathered me while he was infected with the paranormal zombification virus. This made me a Zombie-Human Hybrid aka Demi-Zombie . I live a mostly normal life and have the ability to fake being medically dead. I feel my blood holds the key to curing the zombie scourge that infests our paranormal planet!🧟♀️
Zombies don’t sleep nor do they need to sleep since they’re technically dead. More precisely they are of the undead. Many species of the living dead require some small level of sleep but zombies aren’t one of them. However, individual zombies and walking dead hordes will cease mindless movement after a certain amount of time without spotting, or smelling any human, or animal prey. Plausibly due to the zombie virus weakening without sustenance. It then goes into a state of temporary stasis as it continues the futile attempt to halt Putrefaction.🧟♀️
The Dormant Walking Dead
The Zombies will remain standing still with their heads hanging down until something disturbs them. Zombies that wander off alone will eventually collapse, and appear truly dead if no prey or other zombies are seen after a period of time. However, they’ll pop back up again the minute they smell or hear anything. Sometimes weather conditions including a brisk wind will get them re-animated for a few minutes before going dormant again. High winds can also knock them to the ground where they will lay motionless until motivated to rise. Never assume that a motionless zombie lying on the ground is harmless. Destroy the brain, and ask questions later!🧠
Zombie Horde Movement
If faced with a natural or artificial obstacle, such as a fence, they will continue to move against it if prey is on the other side. Within hours they will cease movement if unsuccessful in conquering said obstacle. Once the object of their fascination is gone they will turn left or right, or all the way around to stagger back where they came from. Without any prey to guide them the most common direction is to turn right for reasons unknown. Some think it is a remnant of their human self since 90% of the populace is right-handed. Clearly, there is no zombie horde leader so it is unknown what guides their travel when no evidence of human prey, or even interesting smells exist. We do know that they tend to follow the path of least resistance. They instinctively stay with the zombie herd unless lured away.🧟
Doctor Ashley Abercrombie: Mystic Investigations Chief Cryptozoologist
On a related note, I’m Mystic Investigations half-zombie Cryptozoologist Ashley Abercrombie. Commonly a Zombie-Human Hybrid is known as a Demi-Zombie. I personally only sleep 3-4 hours a night. Although, I’ve gone a week with only 2 hours of sleep per night. It seems that’s all my human half needs despite the average adult requiring 7-8 hours of sleep on a nightly basis. I’ve been told that indulging in my craving for human flesh would greatly eliminate my need for sleep but I refuse to give in to my dark zombie desires! You can find short stories featuring me here.
Cryptozooglogists, Necrologists, and Zombologists classify Zombies as Homo Necrosis Zombifis under the supernatural sciences. The complete paranormal classification is below:
Zombie Scientific Classification Chart
Kingdom: Cryptida (Supernatural Cryptids)
Phylum: Immortalis (Immortals)
Class: SupraNecrosis (Living Dead Beings)
Order: Magica (A Product Of Magic)
Family: Anthropophagis Sanguinus (Survives Off Human Flesh And Blood)
Genus: Homo Necrosis (The Melding Of Human And Zombie)
Species: Homo Necrosis Zombifis (Scientific Name For Zombies)
Cryptida is the seventh Kingdom that mainstream science refuses to acknowledge.
Despite Zombies being technically Immortal they also are in a state of rotting necrosis which means they will be non-animated in less than a decade depending on the circumstances of the environment they menace. However magical intervention could theoretically extend their destructive lives indefinitely. The original supernatural zombie virus is a product of a magical accident. In addition to Practitioners Of Magic raising corpses from the dead, the zombies themselves can pass on the virus to make new zombies.
For reasons not fully understood by vampires nor human cryptozoologists, approximately 50% of Vampires who acquire temporary amnesia believe they’re human. Within that belief a physical reality forms, and they display Human characteristics. They no longer spontaneously combust in holy sunlight, find religious artifacts repellent, nor have a craving for blood. These vampire enigmas appear to be human in every way. They eat food, sleep and have no special supernatural abilities. They even see their demonic evil fades away as well. However the handful who could be studied still had no heartbeat, didn’t breath and were still technically members of the living dead. Samples of their DNA proved they still had the normal demonic based vampire genes. Although the DNA was inexplicably dormant. In essence creating a new latent vampire neither truly human nor vampire.
The Gift Of Amnesia Can Grant Humanity To A Vampire
Mystic Investigations very own Drake Alexander was blown up in an extraterrestrial vessel in 2011, and had amnesia while making his way around Kentucky. Unfortunately such a condition in a vampire is merely caused by a massive brain injury, and all super immortals eventually heal regaining their memory via metaphysical means. If they’re eating food instead of blood the healing process takes substantially longer. Rather than days their odd human like state could go on for many months. Of course any vampire telling them who they are or hypnotically mesmerizing them snaps the amnesia victim right out of it! Regrettably, such hypnosis on a standard vampire for the opposite purpose doesn’t cause them to enter the same unique latent state. They can be tricked into thinking they’re human until they come across sunlight or a human whose blood they will always immediately lust for!
Could The Placebo Effect Play A Role In A Vampire Cure?
Paranormal researchers continue to study this as a potential starting point for a vampire virus cure. The demonic virus itself is unique in that a ritual must take place between sire, and their potential vampire to activate the vampirism. So some manner of magic is involved. The only magic the average vampire can perform. Thankfully you can’t simply catch the vampire virus like the easily spread Zombie virus. The amnesia factor, along with hypnosis, doesn’t work on other supernatural beings such as Werewolves with their Lycanthrope Virus. They still turn into to hairy horrors in the full Moon even with memory loss. In addition other demon based beings like Demi-Demons don’t change when they have memory loss. Perhaps there is a fine line between human and vampire that can be skirted under extreme situations? Even a relationship with the Placebo Effect seen in humans.
The Role Of Split Personality Disorder In Vampire Physiology
Another interesting aspect of mind over matter is the ability of some vampires with split personalities, or Dissociative Identity Disorder, to maintain their humanity in their human personas. At least 25% of the time, humans with DID aren’t cured of their mental illness via the wondrous yet dark vampire virus. When they shift to their human identities they show no signs of being a vampire, and are human in every observable medical way. They walk freely in sunlight, eat garlic, wear silver jewelry, and grip crucifixes with ease! Unlike the amnesia stricken vampires the split personality vampires are technically not living dead under metaphysical medical scrutiny. Demonic DNA is still latently present when in their human personas but they have a heartbeat, breath oxygen, possess functional internal organs, and pass a standard medical exam as a human in normal health.
The Vampire Personality Always Wins In The End!
Attempts to cure the mental disorder and unify the personalities into one human form have failed every time. The vampire always wins in the end! Just as the vampire persona emerges when an enticing blood supply situation presents itself! Often their Sires will cure the disorder by simply physically killing each persona by a method not lethal to a vampire. Usually draining the person of their blood which is in fact human for each distinct personality. Even after being drained the next persona emerges and the blood supply is miraculously replenished! Is this the power of the human soul working in conjunction with the awesome raw energy of the supernatural vampire?
Supernatural Blood Cures For Vampirism
There have been fabled ancient cures for vampirism for countless ages but none have panned out. Often complicated magical rituals involving extremely hard to obtain substances that must be administered at some appointed time or during a key celestial event. That being said there are rumors, and some evidence of certain types of paranormal blood reversing vampirism that either turn them into a human, or into another supernatural entity temporarily, or permanently. The permanent solutions include Angel blood which is said to revert a good vampire to human form but will kill an evil one instantly! Pure demon blood will eventually transform a vampire into a full demon. Genie blood naturally turns them into a Genie that is instantly locked into the nearest bottle, or lamp. Earthly God or Goddess blood is rumored to either temporarily, or permanently turn them into a God! Reverse Vampire, aka Sol Vampires, blood could possibly cause a full reversion to a human state. Of course it’s beyond rare a vampire would run across any of these beings in biological form!
The Female Vampire Pregnancy Cure
Only first generation pure breed vampires can get pregnant by another of their kind for the most part. However there is a legend that states if a vampire manages to become pregnant by a human then their body would have no choice but to become human in order to support the growing baby. There is a specific supernatural ritual required to supposedly accomplish this, and in the end the human male must be sacrificed by draining him completely of blood. Blood the female would consume completely!
The Sacrificial Male Virgin Father Required To Impregnate A Common Vampire
The male in question must be a pure virgin of mind, body, and soul implying someone who’s committed no moral offenses. The insemination must occur at the highest point anywhere within the zone of a complete solar eclipse. In addition the female vampire looking to get pregnant must have previously drank some of the father to be’s blood during the last Halloween Blood Moon. Once pregnant the mother must carry the baby to term and have a successful birth otherwise her humanity will be reversed. Should the child die after birth then the Mother would spontaneously combust into unholy fire, and turn to ash as a normal vampire would when extinguished.
The Miracle Immortal Child Of A Common Vampire
Said miracle child would be a non-supernatural Immortal without any enhanced abilities. Although they should supposedly have blood that could permanently cure any vampire. Naturally he or she would be an active target for vampire royalty who would see the child as a threat to their very existence! There is no indication of such a child in the official secret supernatural record dating back to the dawn of civilization! Of course, the mother would know of the danger her child would face and work to keep his or her existence an eternal secret. Not to mention that their lives are linked forever. If the child dies so does the former vampire mother who would also be a non-enhanced immortal. There is also an indication that the child will die if the mother does.
