The Undead Soldier

(2011 Dan Nokes)  The year is 2115…It has been a decade since a nuclear holocaust wiped out over 99% of the world’s population.  What is left has mutated into canibalistic sub-human creatures, or banded into small pockets of scavengers, looking for a fabled land that had been untouched by the THE GREAT LAST DEATH, as the survivors had called it.  One such pocket was heading north on one such rumor, when they were attacked by a mutant gang.  They were about to be overwhelmed, when a stranger in soldier’s garb saved the band.  When the tribe went to thank him they found that the soldier had been hideously scared to the point where he resembled a walking corpse…The tribe elder identified him from another legend of the wasteland known as THE UNDEAD SOLDIER: A former military man, whose origin’s are shrouded in mystery.  But is said to help out person’s who cross his path.  None are sure why?  Some say because of some lost sense of duty.  Other’s say it is to feel some semblence of a long lost humanity.   In any case the Undead soldier follows the band and protects them from the numerous beasts, dangers, and terrors, that lurk in the unknown as they make their way to what they hope is a small patch of paradise in what seems a unending wasteland…
