Bill is a man on a Mission from God. Having lost his wife and only child in the childbirth, Bill turned to drinking heavily. After a few months, a horrible thing happened, several of the dead clawed their way out of their graves. This included Bill’s dead wife, Rebecca.

Bill realizing what had to be done for the sakes of their poor souls. Bill did the hardest thing he’d ever done. He put down the corpse of his wife, and a few others.

After that, quitting the bottle was easy by comparison. Now Bill knew that he could not stay and grieve. He HAD to move along, putting the unquiet dead back to rest. Using his shovels, his bible and his faith, Bill set out from his small town to fulfill God’s Mission.
