Description (Initial Observations): The figure appears humanoid and is clothed in a plain jumpsuit. It seems to have no other possessions. Its body quivers and shakes in a very inhuman way. It appears to be made of a dark brown, glistening, gelatinous substance. The disgusting creature will attack the party by bashing characters with its two misshapen fists.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: It is a plague zombie, a victim of the horrible Canopus plague. Each attack does only 1d2 points of damage, but anyone struck will be coated with some of the creature's gooey substance. The brown material will eat away at the victim's flesh, causing 1d6 points of damage per round. If the damage taken exceeds the victim's total number of hit points, the victim will become a plague zombie and attack the rest of the party. The only way to stop the plague from taking over a body is to remove the affected flesh with a sharp object, causing 1d4 points of damage per affected area. Once the plague has taken over a body, there is no cure. The Canopus plague is an alien disease brought back to Earth by long-range scout ships in the early 2300's. It is highly contagious and causes its victims' flesh to change into a viscous, pudding-like material. Once the plague has totally taken over a body, the victim becomes a zombie, interested only in seeking out healthy humans and infecting them with the foul disease. The Canopus Plague never broke out in epidemic proportions on Earth, but many space stations such as this were completely contaminated. When this station was infected, the survivors were lucky enough to escape and leave the plague-zombies behind. The space station has remained functioning, but plague zombies wander the rooms and halls in an endless search for uninfected humans.
