The San Romero Zombie ApocalypseEdit

During 9:45 a.m. approximately at June 12, 2012, San Romero High experienced a sudden attack, when a portal between Earth and the Rotten World was suddenly open. Fumes of the Rotten World quickly seeped to that of the San Romero High School, infecting the resident students and eventually transforming them into zombies. The perpetrator of this attack was known under the name of Swan, whose motivations were driven by the constant abuse of his fellow peers.

Swan eventually practiced a dark ritual that summoned five supernatural beings into the plane of Earth, known as the Dark Purveyors. These five supernatural beings were then commanded by their leader Swan, to further spread the infection with their supernatural powers. Each Purveyor targeted an area that when perfectly aligned, would create a pentagram, the iconic symbol for the religion of Satanism.

Each Purveyor infected a specific area, while at the same time had the important purpose to be sacrificed to summon a greater being. This being would later to be known as Killabilly the Zombie of Zombies, who later began destroying the city of San Romero. Last remaining San Romero Students, Juliet Starling and Nick Carlyle came to confront the great being to defeat him and stop his reign destruction.

After reaching his body, it is revealed that Swan's decapitated corpse is attached to the heart of Killabilly. The bodiless Nick Carlyle was then sadly placed on the corpse of Swan, and commanded Killabilly's body to self-destruct, killing him along with him during the process.

In the end it is revealed that Nick's heroic behavior had earned him a second chance, and caused him to reenter Earth with the body of Morikawa. Rejoicing with Juliet along with her family, the group returns to the Starling residence to formally celebrate the birthday of Juliet Starling. It is presumed that Nick and the Starlings are the last survivors of San Romero.
