A person kept around during the zombie apocalypse by a group of survivors as the designated bait when running from zombies. Usually a slower, heavier or asthmatic person without stamina. The idea is that he/she will be the person at the back of the group and will be caught by the zombies thus allowing the rest of the group to escape.
It has its origins in WWII radar counter-measures - bogus targets dropped by aircraft to confound enemy surveillance.
"We keep Bill around as Chaff, we don't have to run fast, just faster than Bill....."
"Who's the Chaff in this group? Look around, if you can't pick him out, it's you!"
