History
Quentin Newman had a boring life, before the outbreak. A researcher at a pharmaceutical company, he spent most of his time in a lab injecting things into mice. The highlight of his week was Zombie Movie Night: every Saturday, he and a few of his friends would get together and rent some awful zombie flick. They spent a huge amount of time developing plans for what to do in case of a zombie apocalypse: whose house was most easily fortified, where to get guns, where to get food, etc. During hunting season they would take a trip up to his buddy's cabin every few weeks and kill defenseless forest animals.

While they were on one of these trips, there was a containment breach at an SCP Foundation facility. 008 was released into the population. By the time they returned to the city, most people were infected. The plan went into action. Everyone holed up in Quentin's house and stayed there for six months. The infected wouldn't die. Quentin decided to head for his company's research labs, and try to engineer a cure.

A few coworkers of his had the same impulse. There was a reasonably large group there, and they had managed to progress fairly far towards a vaccine. A month or two later, and it was ready for human trials. Quentin volunteered. They captured a single zombie, and let it bite him. The vaccine was successful, up to a point. He didn't lose his mind like the others. But the craving for flesh and the other physical changes were still there. He willingly left, not wanting to expose others to his disease. The zombies wouldn't attack him. He just wandered around for a while, and somehow ended up in the House.

Quentin almost never shows his face. He wears a scarf and sunglasses, with a hoodie, and leather gloves to cover his hands. He is paranoid of people discovering his "skin condition", and will go to great lengths to prevent it.
