The Hospital Ship Rightous Endeavor (Est. 1944)

Legend has it that a Lenehenese hospital ship tending to the wounded and sick after the Gothic War was infected by an unknown virus whilst in transit back to Lenehen. The passengers and Officio Medicae personnel onboard were quickly possessed by this terrible illness and transformed into the first Plague Zombies. Once men and women but now possessed by a hideous virus, they wear bio-containment suits to hold their decaying forms together. These foul entities are filled with a hatred of all things that live and breathe, but retain the skills and memories of their former selves. Believed by some to be nothing more than an urban legend amonst the Imperial Navy and by others as terrifyingly true, many a night-time sentry have claimed to have seen this rotting, rusted hulk in the darkest of nights.
