Before the zombie apocalypse Gary had a reputation on the estate as a bad man. At fifteen, he has an ASBO, and had already been excluded from school. He saw himself as a gangster, while most of the other residence of the estate saw him as a menace.
The zombie Apocalypse changed everything for Gary. Gary responded to the zombies he met in the only way he knew how: with extreme violence. The neighbors on the council estate who has always avoided him and had been afraid of him now flocked to his side, hoping he could protect them. As the authorities failed to stem the tide of the living dead Gary has found himself the unofficial leader of an armed resistance group striving to protect the estate from the hordes of zombies.
Lenard is Gary's best mate and right hand man. He is as surprised as Gary to find himself in the role of local hero and defender of the people, but he his starting to relish the role. His preferred weapon is a chainsaw he stole from B+Q. It's noisy, unwieldy and unsubtle, but Lenard says you can't beat the growl of the engine as you saw your way through a zombie.
