After Richtofen's Grand Scheme, the Earth was sent into chaos and disarray. Due to the lack of resources available, a group of survivors who called themselves "The Flesh" decided that the only way to survive was to cannibalize the corpses of zombies. What they did not know is that they would inherit infectious symptoms by doing this. The fate of the group is unknown. Samuel J. Stuhlinger was formerly a member of The Flesh, but he left the group for unknown reasons.
