A Subway Zombie is a ghoulish, unhealthy creature that begs for money using its smell and diseases as a weapon. Once a man or a woman, since years it's no longer human and never will be again. It lurks about at the subway area. Its clothes are torn and dirty, its long hair is felted, face and hands are covered with a patina of smut. Its always wide open eyes are rolling wildly deep in their cavities. It smells like a wet dog with an acrid smell of piss. Grunting it'll try to drive you into a corner with its outstretched claw, wanting your money. You'll give 10 bucks, fearing the glance of its eye, fearing its foul breath, fearing its blade like and broken greasy fingernails, fearing its unclean touch, while a pervert part of your brain shuddering realizes the several skin diseases of that Subway Zombie. "One touch of the filthy creature and you'll die of leprosy or much worse", is the only thing you're able to think till it's over.
Look Matt! What lucky beggars we are! The Subway Zombie is trying to drive a Japanese tourist into that left corner, let's escape the other way!, Darryl said gladly.
