The SoldierIn Empire, an elite military unit called "Hand of God" is stationed outside the walls of Jefferson Harbor. While there, they observe the Reaper - and come under fire from an Army deserter who has joined the ranks of the undead.
For a rotter who can shoot, humans seem like easy prey. But this zombie is taking on a group of men and women who've stared Death in the face.
He fled from the fray and his brothers
To save his own neck, per his druthers;
But after the bite
He returned to the fight
To drink from the throats of the others.
