Chubbers are zombies who were pretty hefty in their lives before turning. They pose all sorts of problems as their shear size and weight give them the momentum and force to break down doors and do some real damage. Being heavy-set in life doesn’t mean being weak. After all it takes a lot of strength to move those extra pounds around. As chubbers go through the process of putrefying they are sources of disease and horror that can bring down even the staunchest of survivors.
One thing to look out for with chubbers is that they have the potential to stick around for quite a while. Skinny people who turn are going to lose fluids and dry out pretty quickly but chubbers won’t. As long as they feed, the rate at which they drop off the excess pounds through the loss of tissue, fat, and fluids will be greatly offset.
Beware the well fed dead.
