Zombie Description Generator

When you think of a zombie, most have a pretty clear idea of what they look like. But What IS that mental image? Are all zombies the same?
After all, they were once people when they was alive and people come in various shapes and species so why not the zombie as well?
The CDG range is designed with a fantasy setting in mind, but can easily be used for sci-fi or modern/horror settings with minor tweaking.
Items in the Quirk and Features section marked with a (*) need to be decided if the quirk applies to the left, right or both sides as appropriate. These are generally only suitable for the rare zombies.
