  Dr Sy N Tist  

"Zombies don't read Darwin."


This very tall and bulky man fills his large lab coat, and is constantly adjusting his protective goggles. The goggles - they do nothing.


After obtaining his PhD in evolutionary genetics and ecology through Princeton University, Sy was studying the dwindling population of Sumatran tigers in Indonesia. Upon hearing of the zombie outbreak, all prior work was abandoned, and he moved to England to study this fascinating development of nature. Zombies are the perfect test subject - human in every way except for their viral infection. Will the superior intellect of the survivors hold them as a stronger force, or will the sheer animal instinct and fast reproduction of the zombie kind allow them to gain the majority? Darwin's survival of the fittest theory put to its most interesting application.

Trapped in Malton after ignoring the early evacuations to continue observation, Sy found the survival skills he'd been required to develop for field work suddenly put to use. He was no longer an outside observer, but now an unwilling participant in this fight for dominance. In his struggle, he came across Bulldog of the Dunell Hills Police Department, and soon found a group of survivors to allow him safety, and the ability to continue his studies. If he is to die in Malton, he will die knowing what he came to learn.
