I first encontered several dozens of these fellows on the Isle of Gough, the Southernmost island in the Trisan da Cuhna island group. This remote island is located about midway between Cape Town, South Africa and Buenos Aires, Argentina. My crew was going for the main island when we encountered some unforseen inconviniences. We had to make an emergency stop on Gough which aparently contains nothing save one meteorological station. My First Mate Thatherton seemed to know a man running this station, and suggested we call on him for assistance.
Upon arrival on the Island of Gough, we knew something was wrong. My trusty Hound was hiding below deck, like a ninny. Upon arrival at the meterological station, we could smell the smelly smell of something that smells... like death! After the encounter with the Parade, we were sure to have less-than-legal firearms with us at all times. We encountered a few of the vile abominations at the door closest to our ship. We quickly dispatched them, and decided that it was imperative that we leave. As we headed back to our ship, we heard more of them coming at us, to our surprise, they were the same creatures that had attacked us before. They were leaking what I now know is called "Zombie Oil," or coagulated blood. We were able to got to our ship unscathed, but we were unsure what it really was we were attacked by. After several phone calls, we contacted the head of the FVZA (Federal Vampire and Zombie Agency) Dr. Hugo Pecos. He assured us that what we were up against was in fact a group of Zombies. He was able to get us a nearby contact who provided for us an Antidote to the Zombie Virus. Though none of us were touched by the creatures, they assured us that it was in our best interests to receive the antidote, just in case. Shortly after this, a team of expert Vampire and Zombie hunters was dispatched to the small island. We were informed that over 600 of the creatures were destroyed by the FVZA in a matter of hours, with no casualties on their part.
I would like to commend the courageous men and women of the FVZA for their fine job of selflessly protecting every citizen of this planet every single day.
