[top]Zombie Information and Background

  • The Little Ones are a newer zombie in the We're Alive zombie pantheon. First appearing hidden in the shadows of the store rooms of the Army Reserve Center, they left behind an unknown slime on the boxes of M.R.E.'s being transported by Angel and Kalani. Seem to be natural hunters and know when they are at a disadvantage and prefer to attack from above. Skittles mentions their funny way of moving without going into detail.

  • During the attack on the Maller convoy in chapter 21, a Little One loses it's arm when Bricks breaks it off in the car door. Upon inspection, the Mallers take note of the seemingly endless fingers and the uncommonly long and sharpened fingernails. They also take note of the number "5" tattooed on the forearm.

  • While most zombies were most definitely human at one point, it seems to be unknown if the Little Ones were ever human in the first place. The autopsy of Little One #2 performed by Tanya revealed that little ones basically have the same inner organs as humans; but she also uncovers a few differences: the heart is a lot bigger and is connected to much more arteries compared with the average human heart; the bones have a yellow tinting; and teeth are extracted easily; their skin is very thick and without pigmentation - (#33-3). Therefore it is safe to assume that little ones were humans in the first place.

  • Little-ones have a tough skin as well, which is capable of stopping shots very well. This physiological ability already takes place minutes after the infection. Also little-ones don't seem to be slowed down by cold temperature.

  • The "Little Ones" also seem to grow rather fast and can turn into 6'9'' tall but skinny zombies. Each with a different number tattooed on the arm.

  • "Little Ones" appear to turn humans into other "Little Ones." It is not known if these are the only type of zombie that do this (turn like into like).

  • "Little Ones" have been associated to the hospital. Inside the mental asylum the mention of nails on the floor and a ink machine.

  • In Chapter 37, it is revealed the Little One's are capable of speech.
