(Luke Newberry )
“Those people hated me even before I was like this” – Kieren
18-year-old Kieren’s always been a bit different. As a teen, he was into everything alternative: music, books, counter culture in general. And he loved hanging out with his best mate, Rick.
When Rick joined the army rather than tell his Dad he and Kieren had a connection, Kieren was heartbroken. Then, to make matters worse, Kieren heard that Rick had died from an IED in Afghanistan. It was all too much to bear.
As an untreated zombie, Kieren hunted in and around Roarton with his hunting partner, Amy Dyer. Now treated and ready for rehabilitation, Kieren is filled with guilt for what he did as a rabid zombie and doesn’t want to go home and face his parents and the village where he was always the black sheep, even before he died.
