Jenny Harken Height:
BlueComplications: Gotta Have It!:
Living Dead Girl steals anything that appeals to her, simply to have what she feels she was denied in her life.Motivation ~Thrills:
Living Dead Girl loves the rush of committing robberies. It’s one of the few things she can still feel in her current condition.Background:
Jenny Harken was practically born to be a statistic. She grew up in a poor urban family, her father was an alcoholic, and liked to beat his wife and make inappropriate trips into his daughters’ bedrooms at night. The anti-fairy tale was complete when Jenny’s father killed her mother after an especially long night drinking. Jenny and her two older sisters were sent off to live in different group homes.
Utterly alone Jenny began acting out, embracing every shade of counter culture that she could think of. By fifteen she was pierced, tattooed, drank, smoked, took drugs, dressed in black leather, and listened to music that made those older than her cringe. She began to attract all sorts of attention from rough customers who liked those kind of things in a girl. Finally getting the attention she desired Jenny dropped out of high school and left the group home.
All this new found attention however proved to be brief, the types of thugs that she had attracted lost interest quickly and began giving their attention to other underage girls. Having no marketable skills and no place to live Jenny became desperate. She turned to prostitution, but abandoned it quickly after a bad experience and decided to do the next best thing, becoming an “exotic dancer” lying about her age to secure the position.
The job proved to be a perfect fit for Jenny, her unique sense of fashion, her natural good looks, and her tendency to dance to the music of shock-themed artists made her stand out from all the other girls at the club. It earned her praise, money, and what she wanted most, attention. Jenny was thrilled, she began to embrace her vices with wild abandon. She did more drugs, drank more booze, and bedded strange men and women at an almost epic pace. In a short period of time Jenny became infamous within the city’s underbelly as the poster girl for a good time that’d one would never tell their mother about.
That reputation landed her an invitation to a huge party in honor of a local sports superstar, Brad Thomas. Jenny had been called in to show the guest of honor a good time. Odds are that she would have accomplished that goal if she hadn’t sampled some of the drugs that were being served at the party. One of the Thomas’ more jaded buddies decided to get his friend another surprise, and replace his usual dose of MAX, with a mix of MAX and Zombie Dust. The moment Jenny took it she went wild, ripping apart the VIP room with her bare hands and seriously injuring the Brad Thomas in the process.
When she finally crashed Thomas’ entourage pounced on Jenny, severely beating her for hurting their meal ticket. They then took her unconscious body, drove it out to the Fens and dumped her by the river. If she had been taken to a hospital odds are she would have survived the overdose, and even the beating, but without medical attention she died there that night, having finally become the statistic she was destined to be.
That was until shortly after her funeral.
Jenny awoke in her own coffin and quickly realized where she was, began a frenzied attempt to claw her way free. After what seemed like an eternity Jenny burst out from her own grave, unaware that she hadn’t drawn one breath, or felt the urge to eat once the entire time. When she pulled herself from her grave she saw a tall man wearing a dark coat over a perfectly fitted black suit warming himself by a fire that illuminated the night around him. When he saw her, the man smiled wide and beckoned her to join him by the fire.
“I was wondering when you’d wake up.” He chuckled softly as he warmed his hands by the fire.
Jenny, still dazed followed his example but after a few moments she realized that she was feeling cold. She blinked in surprise and looked to the man.
“Hey Mister, who are you?”
He simply grinned at her from across the fire.
“My dear, you need not worry about what my name is. Just know that I gave you what you wanted so very badly. There will be a point in the future when I will require a favor from you in return.”
With that the man stood up and walked away from the fire and Jenny hasn‘t seen nor heard from the man since. Jenny stumbled back to her apartment only to find her possessions all tossed out onto a curb. She scrounged through the mess and was only able to salvage some of her old dancing clothes. During that furious attempt to dress herself she caught sight of herself in a nearby window; her skin was extremely pale and she could feel just how cold her body really was now. It was then that Jenny realized what had happened… she had died… and she wasn’t quite alive anymore. The course of events caused her remaining sanity to fracture.
When Jenny emerged from the haze of her own breakdown she was no longer the same person. She began calling herself Living Dead Girl (after a favorite song of hers that she often danced to when she was alive), and began to take whatever she wanted. She had been a victim her entire life, and she wasn’t going to be that way in death. During one of her first crimes, robbing an antique shop, she came across an amulet that seemed to be glowing. When she touched the amulet she could then see the spirit world, seeing the flow of dead souls around her. She immediately knew what she wanted to do with this new found trinket; she’d get revenge on those that had killed her.
Over the course of a week Living Dead Girl tracked down and murdered each member of Brad Thomas’ entourage, finally killing the man himself ten minutes before game time, and leaving his skinned corpse where his teammates could find it. With her revenge satisfied she set about stealing as much as she possibly could, in hopes of getting the comfort she never had in life.
This brought all sorts of attention to her and Living Dead Girl soon found herself tangling with super heroes. She was able to hold her own, but having no experience fighting she was often pressed to win and she mostly managed to make her escape due to her opponents underestimating the amount of power she possessed. Living Dead Girl began to look into find herself some muscle but no living person seemed willing to work with the mentally unstable over-sexed zombie, so she hit upon the idea of using her power over spirits to raise one for herself.
After several months of research she learned of the Celestial Crane, a deceased martial artist that seemed like the perfect candidate for her needs. Living Dead Girl preformed a ritual that drew his skeleton from the ground and she filled it in with soil and stone forcing it to mimic a human frame. Living Dead Girl fixed a mask on her creation and christened her servant Tombstone.
Since that day Living Dead Girl and Tombstone have been the villainous duo to beat all over the eastern seaboard. They’ve robbed entire cities blind, while Tombstone viciously beats down the foes that can actually slow Living Dead Girl down. She’s established a hideout of sorts in an abandoned wax museum. There Living Dead Girl has turned the museum into an homage to B horror films. She’s also grown unnaturally close to her protector Tombstone, relating to the mute animated corpse like a long-term boyfriend. It’s disturbing to watch, but to Living Dead Girl it’s the perfect relationship, she’s finally found a man that won’t use her, he can’t, he exists to be used by her instead.

Living Dead Girl’s silent servant is known as Tombstone. Those who fight him quickly realize that underneath his clothing and his seemingly normal skin and body is made of densely packed grave soil and stones. He’s gained a reputation for being nearly indestructible, as gravel, soil, and dirt tends to slip inside his clothing and replace as chunks of his earthen body knocked out of place.
Nobody knows that Tombstone is really the former hero Celestial Crane. He was active in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He was known primarily for his excellent physical condition and his use of martial arts in fighting crime with ruthless efficiency. Unfortunately he met his end in 1985 when he joined forces with Thomas Rhymer in defeating a creature who may or may not have been the vampire lord Dracula. After Celestial Crane managed to strike an especially brutal blow the vampire ripped out the martial artist’s heart.
Celestial Crane was revealed to be Sato Tomita, an immigrant who used his martial skills to fight threats against innocent lives. He was laid to rest as a hero and those whose lives he touched celebrated his life and commitment.
That would have been the end of the story if Living Dead Girl hadn’t learned about him following her transformation. She quickly realized that despite her newfound power she was vulnerable against certain kinds of foes and needing protection she researched the deaths of heroes and discovered where Sato Tomita was buried.
Using her new powers over the death she raised his skeleton from the grave and packed it with the dense soil and stone from his grave until her protector’s body was as hard as concrete. Since then Sato Tomita has served as Living Dead Girl’s protector, using his martial arts skill and prodigious strength to crush any enemy that rears its head.
Tombstone possesses only a fraction of the agility of his former self and his dim memories forming the basis for what few skills he has left. He appears to retain his martial skills, remembering his skills almost reflexively more than anything else. What few know is that he retains his strength only through keeping contact with the ground, if he’s kept in the air for long periods of time the soil surrounding his skeleton will fall away until he is unable to fight back.
