    As with the original, this is not the story of how the zombie plague started or was cured, that is for another time, this is simply the story of how the few lucky survivors now live in a world where harmony is only a memory.

    As the title suggests, this is a reboot, same setting as the original, just with new characters.

    The original: https://ukofequestria.co.uk/threads/oc-in-the-zombie-apocalypse.10530/

    Now for a few rules/guides/general fluff to get started:

    1. Probably the biggest one, keep in mind the rules of the forum as a whole, basically, keep your writing to PG13 and all should be good.

    2. No god-modding and such, standard stuff, don't make your character op, like able to take on entire hordes by themselves, remember, our OCs are mostly just you're average everyday ponies surviving on luck, able to take on 1 or 2 at most, and only really if they get the drop on them.

    3. For the purpose of map locations and such, we'll use this for equestria as a whole:
    [​IMG]

    And this for Canterlot City itself:
    [​IMG]

    4. Now for some of the fluff and canon of the zombies themselves:
    The most common walkers that are seen are of course the 3 pony races, each are generally quite similar but with a few key differences.
    Earth Ponies are your average walkers of the slow staggering moaning variety. (think of the zombies from the Walking Dead TV show)
    Pegasi are similar to earth ponies but are a bit faster, they can get up to about jogging speed when on the ground and are capable of very limited uncoordinated flight.
    Unicorns are probably the most dangerous of the common pony zombies, they're only as fast as the earth pony variety but once they spot prey they will start firing off random magic from their horns (if they still have them) they cannot aim their spells, its just a random reflex action like the moaning sounds all 3 types make.

    Several traits all types share though are completely red eyes and all zombies are much stronger than the living, if you get grabbed by one chances are you're not getting away without quickly dispatching it before it gets a bite of you.
    Which brings me to how infection works; it is an airborne virus so all living are already infected, but it only takes effect after you die. If you get bitten and it breaks the skin you'll quickly come down with a fever which will kill you eventually, however, a scratch from a zombie or blood getting in your mouth or smaller things like that will only really make you ill for a bit but wont kill.

    5. Other than that, biggest rule is make sure to have fun!

    The streets of Canterlot were eerily quiet in the late afternoon sun, the only noises being the occasional light breeze blowing through the deserted, decaying buildings ….and the careful hoofsteps of a lone batpony, Nightwing, Lieutenant of the Nightguard. The mechanical joints and servos of her prosthetic left foreleg hissed quietly as she walked, Her once gleaming armour now battered with countless scars of battle, each one a reminder of a close encounter with 'them', her trusty crossbow was slung over her back, loaded and ready for action. At her side, a saddlebag carrying food, water and some basic medical supplies.

    She turned a corner along her usual patrol route, every sense on high alert; her eyes scanning her surroundings, every window, open doorway and dark ally, watching for any sign of movement. her ears twitching every so often, picking up every sound carried by the wind. Even the smell of the air carried the stench of death, betraying the fact she wasn't alone in the city.

    Luckily for Nightwing that afternoons patrol was uneventful, she breathed a small sigh of relief as she rounded the last corner and her safehouse came into sight, a small terraced house along one of Canterlots many smaller streets. She had boarded up the ground floor windows as well as the front and rear doors leaving herself the first floor window at the front as her way in and out. She scanned the empty street quickly before unfurling her leathery batlike wings and silently taking off, landing less than a minute later on the rickety wooden platform she'd bolted to the wall outside the window. Taking one last look around, making sure nothing saw her entering, she unbolted the window and slipped inside.

    As the dull orange sun set along the horizon and nightfall quickly blanketed the sky in constellations, Captain Night Orb, of the Lunar Guard Scanned the Perimeter of Canterlot Castle from the balcony atop one of the many towers, his senses heightened and alert as he kept watch over the surrounding area.

    A few hours past and the night was now a dark midnight purple in colour, the stars clearer than before apart from the few stray clouds that drifted the skies after the initial outbreak halted the weather pony's work.

    "Captain, I'll take next watch." a grizzled looking bearded maroon Lunar guard spoke as he approached the Captain.

    "Ahh... Sgt Stone-March... good to see you up and about again, feeling well i see." the Captain turned and smiled reassuringly, looking the Sgt up and down, making sure he was in-fact in good health, for the circumstances at least.

    "Don't fret Sir, i'm in good enough health for my duties, thanks to you of course." The Pony trotted over to the balcony and started scanning the outskirts, still listening to his superior.

    "No pony left behind, son... "
    He Raised his hoof and patted the shoulder of Stone-March, "Don't go falling asleep now, it's 6 hours before the next shift change. Good luck."

    Night Orb made his was downward eventually reaching the makeshift mess-hall and cafeteria in the old ball room of the castle, The light mixture of stale food, seared flesh and infected wounds was a good reason to take up watch in the towers throughout the castle. 'Better check up on the patrols, don't want another Stone-March situation after all...' The Captain thought to himself as he pulled out a dull blue crystal orb, just big enough to fit in his hoof. The Orb glowed very subtly before three soft, silent, separate vibrations then nothing. He waited for a few moments for a reply.

    After making sure her makeshift safehouse was secure Nightwing dropped her saddlebag and crossbow by the entrance window. She then wriggled out of her battered armour and stretched her aching legs feeling a few joints crack, she sighed in relief and, grabbing her saddlebag again. She then trotted out of the former main bedroom across the upstairs hallway, where she took second to examine the stairway she'd barricaded with most of the upstairs furniture. She gave the barricade a kick to make sure it was still secure, with a satisfied nod she continued into what used to be the second bedroom.

    There she sat by the window, just out of sight from ground level and had a small meal of slightly off oats and a bit of what water she had left while from her bags while watching the sun go down and plunging Canterlot into darkness.

    Once the night had set in she closed the thick curtains over the window and lit a small oil lamp set on the floor next to the mattress she'd left in the room after using the bedframe on the stairwell barricade. Keeping the flame small so as to minimise any chance of something seeing the light from outside, she dug through her bags until she found what she was looking for. Namely a small blue orb, sat on the bed she held onto it and waited for the usual call to report in.

    I didn't take long, after a few minutes it started vibrating silently, she tapped the top of it and it went still and started glowing dimly, clearing her throat she leaned close to it and quietly started speaking.

    “This is lieutenant Nightwing reporting in, over” she sat back waiting for confirmation.

    The Captain didn't have to wait long at all before a reply was heard.

    “This is lieutenant Nightwing reporting in, over” The orb quietly spoke.

    The Captain Smirked and tapped the orb gently before speaking into it quieter than normal "Good to hear from you Lieutenant, efficient as ever, anything to report, lass?" The captain started walking again as he spoke making his was towards the library, which was now being used as a makeshift war room and his office. He sat down at the table littered with papers, some in good condition others dusty torn or mouldy.

    “Nothing out of the ordinary Captain, no survivors found and the streets seem to be getting quieter, I suspect most of the infected are moving out of the city due to a lack of food. The ones that are left though...” suddenly she heard the sound of wings followed by a thud from outside, she quickly dropped the orb, dulled the lamp and peaked outside the window.

    In the dull moonlight Nightwing watched as a lone infected pegasus slowly picked itself up inside the small walled off garden behind the house, one of its wings now bent at an awkward angle, obviously broken. As she watched it stumbled over to the rear wall of the garden and started scrabbling at it, trying to climb, unable to get any footing it turned around and suddenly locked eyes with Nightwing.

    She ducked out of sight but the damage was done, she facehoofed at her mistake as she heard it moan loudly from outside and after a few seconds it starting to pound away and the back door downstairs.

    “Ah ponyfeathers” she quickly picked up the orb “Captain, my safehouse has been compromised, I'm coming in” she heard more moaning quickly join the first, this time coming from the front of the house. Now rushing, she dropped the orb back in her bag and quickly ran back to the main bedroom at the front of the house, she donned her armour, grabbed her crossbow and took flight into the night.

    The Captain pulled a small log-book from a draw in the nearby desk and a quill, preparing a log entry as his amulet glowed in unison with the quill. He scribbled down the day since outbreak and other formalities as he listened to Nightwing's report.

    “Nothing out of the ordinary Captain, no survivors found and the streets seem to be getting quieter, I suspect most of the infected are moving out of the city due to a lack of food. The ones that are left though...” Night orb scribbled down notes from her report as she spoke gradually.

    A few seconds of silence from the orb worried the Captain. 'Oh come on... please don't...' he thought to himself holding a hoof to his face as he waited a few more seconds.


    “-Captain, my safehouse has been compromised, I'm coming in” The Orb suddenly lit up again.

    "Ah Bullocks!"
    He scrambled out of his chair onto all fours after stuffing the orb back into his bag.

    The Captain burst through the Library's colossal doors startling the various wounded and off-duty guards and civis eating at the mess-table as he bolted towards the main entrance. "Make way!" Night Orb swung open the Castle Main entrance doors into the courtyard, kicking up dirt and tufts of grass as he galloped towards the portcullis "MAN THE BALISTAS!!! OPEN THE GATES!!! LOWER THE DRAWBRIDGE!!! INCURSION INBOUND!!!" His Voice Boomed across the courtyard as the ponies manning the wall hastily got into position and carried out their orders.

    The Captain galloped across the drawbridge senses alert, eyes sweeping the skies and surrounding buildings, looking for the Lieutenant or any sign of her. 'C'mon girl... I don't want to loose another good guard.' his thoughts raced as his breaths became heavy, his heart pumping fast and the adrenaline flowing through his veins.

    Now up in the sky the moaning of the dead below spread like wildfire, the noise of the few around her former safehouse quickly getting the attention of everything within earshot, as she watched a few dark shapes in the moonlight took of from the street and gave chase.

    “Dammit” she muttered as she sped away, looking behind her she didn't notice another dark shape of an ex-pegasus speed at her from below, they collided in the air and they began to fall in a mass of flailing ball of limbs and teeth, in the confusion it managed to get its jaw around her prosthetic limb, she managed to kick its body away and right herself in the air before hitting the ground, leaving her attacker hanging from her leg by its teeth scrabbling at her trying to get a better grip on her.

    “Get off me!” she shouted kicking at her unwanted passenger trying to dislodge it. The ex-pony responded by biting down harder, Nightwing felt the external plates in its jaw suddenly give way and crush the internals with a sickening metallic crunch. Her leg immediately went dead, she gave it one more kick to its face and finally sent it plummeting, taking a good chunk of the side of her leg with it, still in its mouth.

    Without pausing, she sped towards the castle as fast as her wings would carry her, her now useless leg throwing her balance off forcing her to fly slower than she'd like. As she approached the noise behind her grew louder, 'talk about kicking the hornets nest' she thought.

    As she approached she saw the gates open, angling herself down she aimed for the entrance, her leg causing her to misjudge her landing and she tumbled through the gates along the ground in a ball of limbs and dust, coming to rest just inside.

    A few moments pass as Night Orb stood at the end of the drawbridge, his eyes focused on finding Nightwing. "C'mon lass, you can do it..." He muttered to himself as he heard a quickly growing unison of zony groans in the distance straight ahead of him followed by the sighting of What appeared to be a batpony fleeing from some pegazonies, one of which holding onto the pony's leg.

    "there she is!" He said with a slightly more relieved tone... but still quite worried, she did have a zony quite latched onto her after all.

    "READY THE BARRIER!!!" The Captain boomed, to which about a dozen unicorn guards stepped to the edge of the wall, horns glowing at the ready.

    "BALISTA TAKE AIM, FIRE ON MY MARK AND AIM FOR THE WINGS!!!" Night orb commanded seeing as the pegasai zonies were the fasted, they were the ones to worry about first.

    Night Orb looked back to Nightwing, who gained some distance since he last saw, and was now kicking at the zony before it finally lost grip "that'a girl!" He smiled for a brief moment before noticing her balance tremble and quickly turn into a uncontrolled nose dive towards the drawbridge, too fast to intercept the Captain Winced with empathy at her tough landing before rushing over and helping her up, leaning her against him "I got you, Lieutenant."

    With Nightwing now secure he turned and boomed once more "FIIIIIRE!!!" with that a volley of balista bolts streamed across the sky some impacting, others barely missing, three of the seven pegasai zonies had a wing torn off before landing with a thud and aggravated groan, getting to their feet, the remaining 4 still closing in.

    "RAISE THE BARRIER!!!" The Captain yelled as he hastily helped Nigtwing to the other side of the portcullis as the unicorn guards' horns lit up brighter before a flash of blinding light to which after a purple bubble formed around the castle with a stream of various coloured magic streamed from their horns and up into the bubble, powering it as the pegazonies impacted against the barrier like flies to a window, but unlike flies the barrier wouldn't fend them off forever, just until they get bored.

    Leaning on Night Orb for support as he lead her inside, a dazed Nightwing shook her head trying to get her bearings back in check, as well as get rid of the ringing in her ears from her less than stellar landing.

    “Captain, I'm ok sir, I can walk” she said as she stepped away a little unsteadily “This on the other hoof, is now useless” she said as she sat for a moment, opening a panel on the upper side of her leg and pulling a small hidden leaver inside. With a clunk her leg detached from her stump, she threw it across her back and stood up, adjusting her stance to accommodate now only having 3 legs.

    Her mind now clear she noticed the shield now enclosing the castle and the now slightly muted but still quite loud chorus of moaning coming from the city, “Sir, the other scouts?” she said, a hint of worry in her voice.

    Night Orb's expression darkened "well... i haven't had any other scouts report in. so it's either too late, or they're keeping quiet at their safehouses." He looked up to Nightwing and managed to pull a half hearted smile as he patted her shoulder "Let's hope for the latter... but no need to dwell on that now, you need to get cleaned up and settled. -Oh and i hope you have a spare for that leg of yours." The Captain turned away and started to walk towards the mess hall, "once you're sorted report to me for a more detailed debrief in my office, we'll discuss more on the rest of the scouting regiment also."

    Grabbing a piece of bread from the mess hall The Captain makes his way back to his office, snacking on it as he walks. The Massive now dull pearly blue-white doors with faded gold scrolling creaking open and closed as Night Orb passed their threshold and making his way to his desk chair. "hmph..." He mumbled to himself chewing the last piece of bread before swallowing it and scrambling his papers about.

    Eventually after sifting through papers, maps, logs and various forms of written and illustrated documentation the Captain found a map for the grounds of the castle and the rest of the city, which had newly penned markings added, each a safehouse, various other point of interest or significance. His expression turns to a subtle scowl as his eyes scan over the map as if thinking of a way to solve a particularly obnoxious riddle of sorts. "looks like we got some investigating to do..."

    Night Orb Pressed his lips together and made a short sharp whistle, to which a energetic little Spruce and purple leaved timber-wolf scampered out from behind a nearby bookcase and up to his side. Seeing Timmy always cheered The Captain up somewhat. The dark seasoned Unicorn Leader spent the rest of his time waiting for Lieutenant Nightwing's arrival by tending and playing with Timmy, going over tricks and things he'd trained Timmy to do to pass the time.

    Nightwings face fell at the news of the other scouts, “yes sir ….I'll get myself sorted” she muttered as Night orb departed. She looked at the now locked gate, “be safe guys, I'm coming ….as soon as I can” she said to herself.

    She sighed as she made her way to the barracks on the far side of the castle grounds walking past many hastily set up tents housing the still living. Once inside she quickly found where she wanted to be in the familiar hallways and pushed open the door and was greeted with a voice she knew well;

    “Whatever it is it can wait, i'm very busy wite na so please leef and close the door” came the cockney voice of a familiar blue pegasus stallion focusing on something at his workbench.

    “Now is that any way to talk to a Nightguard ….and a friend?” Nightwing said with a small smile.

    The stallion wheeled around and pulled his goggles up “Nightwing!” the stallions face lit up.

    “Hello Silent” she said. Silent Waters was an old friend of hers, they meet when he first designed and made her new leg, he lived up in Trottingham but was visiting Canterlot at the time the outbreak started, before long he found himself roped in to help keep the Royal and Night guards equipment running.

    His smile immediately turning to a scowl when he noticed her missing leg “Wot 'ave ya done ter me leg!?” he shouted, in a blur her leg was off her back and on his workbench.

    “Your leg?” she muttered to herself.

    “You've wrecked it” he said facehoofing, “I suppose ya need me ter fix it up ....again”, he got up and started rummaging around the mess of a room he called his workshop, “You're garn ter need a replacement for na, can't 'ave ya 'obblin' 'round the castle”. A few minutes later he found a spare leg and sat in front of Nightwing, “This'll 'ave ter do for na, its only a civilian model so its not powered” he quickly fitted the basic prosthetic and locked it into place “Try it”.

    Nightwing tested her stance on the new leg, then carefully trotted around the room a few times, it wasn't perfect, but it was much easier to move with it than without. “Thank you Silent, how long till mine is ready to go?”

    Silent scratched his head, “I'm la on supplies, big shocker, but, tomorra afternoon, i'll 'ave it workin' at least by then” he quickly herded her out “Na i'm very busy, i'll clock ya later” and shut the door behind her.

    Getting used to her temporary leg Nightwing quickly exited the barracks crossed the grounds and entered the castle, inside she got her bearings and proceeded towards what was once the library, now converted to the main war room. She passed through the huge doorway to the library and announced herself, “Lieutenant Nightwing reporting sir”

    "Ah... Lieutenant, i see you've got a leg to stand on." Night Orb smirks to himself, still in what was sure to be a sort lived but alright mood.

    Timmy let loose a bark towards Nightwing. "Oi, Attention." the Captain says, looking to the timberwolf at his side, who suddenly sits with a straightened back looking dead ahead. Night Orb's attention now switched back to Nightwing, "at ease and take a seat lieutenant" He gestures to a char the opposite side of the desk. to which Timmy relaxed too and started panting happily, his tail wagging as he watched the curious batpony.

    "We need to debrief and come up with a solution to the missing scouts, the sooner the better." The captain lifted the map of canterlot's interior with his amulet and drifted it over to the opposite side of the desk for Nightwing to see. "Now i don't recall how many are still with us in your regiment, i have a whole castle to keep tabs on after all, that'll be a good start for your regiment report." as he spoke the Captain brought up a small tan leather softback book and a quill to which he opened. The pages were filled with names. "also any survivors you saved, hopefully we can add a few names to the book instead of erasing them, eh?"

    Nightwing settled into the chair opposite the Captain, glancing slightly uneasily at the miniature timberwolf, she'd tackled a few fully grow ones in her time as a Nightguard, not something she ever wanted to do again.

    “Sir, my squad, 10 ponies including myself, we're all that's left of the 125th Night Guard Regiment, At least that I know of” she took the map of the city “we were all posted in the city, at least up until tonight, I figured we'd be able to cover more ground if we operated independently, more risky but it'd give us more chance of finding survivors as well as keeping tabs on any unusual activity from the dead, so I split us up to cover 10 different sectors” She dropped the map back on the table.

    “Sir I messed up, I let one see me and half the city became a hornets nest” She took off her helmet and massaged her forehead, feeling a headache coming on “If they're smart, and I know they are, they'll have tried to regroup and take shelter somewhere defensible”

    “As for survivors sir, only new ones this week was a mare, names Patchwork, and her daughter, Starbright, both originally from Manehatten, it's a miracle they made it here”

    She sat back and crossed her forelegs “Sir my Guard are my top priority, they're under my command and their safety is down to me, I need to get back out there asap to find them”

    The Captain scribbled down notes as she spoke, occasionally looking up with a furrowed brow and troubled look as he processed her report. All the while Timmy cocked his head looking at Nightwing as he'd never seen a batpony before, so of course his curiosity was peaked.

    "Wise strategy to split up, though if it were me Lieutenant i'd have had them in pairs, but i'm sure they're fine one their own. Your group have always been highly effective." He looked back down to his papers.

    Night Orb placed his quill down after logging the new survivors and hopeful remaining numbers of her troop.
    "well... at least we're retrieving some survivors still." He says aloud with concern in his voice as he places the log book back in the desk's draw.

    "I understand your plight Lieutenant but you must remember you are my priority, everyone in this complex is..." He leans forward on his chair, front legs on the desk by the elbow and his hooves scratching at his goatee that was normally well kept but was surrounded with stubble, shaving isn't much of a priority when you're in an apocalypse after all.
    "So i'll be going with you, if we get into trouble i have the best defensive and short range teleportation magic abilities than the remaining survivors here, bar the princess herself of course. we lost a lot of good magic users when the outbreak started." The Captain got off his chair and onto all fours walking to her side of the desk.
    "Now i can only get us out of sticky situations so much, the kinds of magic i use are very intensive to use, especially when using them on more than one individual."

    The Captain walked past Nightwing and to an Armour stand just next to the door of the library and pulled of the helm that rested upon it, making the stand bare as he placed the Beautiful, Ornate, Plumed but very battle-worn helm over his head. the plumage matching his mane and tail's colours perfectly. A custom piece for sure, much like the rest of his scarred but ornate armour.

    Night Orb turned to his Lieutenant and spoke, "Let's save us some ponies, shall we." He rhetorically asked, head held high, smile stretched to a cocky smirk and his stance in a ready to fight manner.

    Nightwing grabbed her own helmet and replaced it on her head, “Yes sir” she said enthusiastically, before hopping off her chair and almost stumbling over on her replacement leg, “ugh, I'm not used to this leg, and its a non powered civilian model, I cant feel or move it on its own” she held it up and shook it limply to demonstrate, “I wouldn't be at the top of my game out there right now”.

    “But” She walked over to the Captain, determination on her face, “for my squad, I'm going”

    "Good!" The Captain almost yells out, maybe a little too enthusiastically, "that determination is what keeps us alive and kickin' Lieutenant." Night Orb grins confidently before taking a quick glance at the civi-issue false leg.

    "You usually have that err... what's his name... that cog-brain pegasus chap repair and maintain your old leg, right?" He cocks an eyebrow as he asks, scratching his beard trying to remember that blasted pony's name.

    “Silent Waters, best mechanic I know of and he knows my leg better than anyone, he designed it after my ….accident” Nightwing subconsciously rubbed her hoof over where her prosthetic meet the stump of her leg. “He's already working on it but it won't be working again until tomorrow afternoon, at least from his estimate” Nightwing strode towards the door to the library, “but my guard cant wait that long, so I'll make do sir”

    "Waters, yes, that's the colt, never been good with names, only ranks." He chuckles to himself.

    "Lead the way Lieutenant, as you most likely know where they'd be, I've got your back." The Captain walks over to the large faded doors of the library and pulls them open, gesturing her to make a move.

    "Timmy, you stay put." To which the timberwolf pup sits down, his leafy eyebrows in a sad sulky position. "good boy."

    Nightwing walked through the doorway and out of the castle into the grounds, still walking at a slightly odd gait, Night Orb following her close behind.

    Outside she noticed the shield had gone revealing the night sky, “they must've finally lost interest” she said to the captain “one sec” she said as she flew up onto the wall where a number of royal and night guard were on watch.

    She walked up to the nearest one, a young looking earth pony royal guard, his armour quite battered and he looked like he hadn't slept in days , “Private, report”

    “Lieutenant Nightwing Ma'me” he hastily stood to attention and saluted her “the dead quickly lost interest once they realised they couldn't get at us, and they've already dispersed”

    “Thank you private, carry on” she responded before flying back down to rejoin the captain.
