The second part of our jobs as Pomps, the things we’re supposed to stop stirring. These aren’t your ‘Grr, brains’ zombies. Nah, that shit doesn’t happen. These are more perambulatory vessels. A Dead body isn’t infected or blood crazy; Stirrers inhabit them.
It’s the only way that Stirrers can exist in our world. They were long ago banished from the land of the living, but they want back in any way they can. If they tip the balance – inhabit enough bodies, get more than a toehold – they might just be able to return in their real form, whatever that is. If that ever happens, we’re all screwed.
