The Zombies from Aperture Science are a xenoform, the result of involuntary-experimentation, performed on human test-subjects in-and-under Port Hope, Michigan; at the Aperture Science Enrichment Center. The company is a decades-later business-entity(/subsidiary?) that developed from the company Aperture which was founded as a shower curtain manufacturer.
Their culture is:
- utterly-subserviant to GLaDOS (Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System), Aperture Sciences' heavily-armed macro-computer; which runs involuntary-experimentation in 'Testing Tracks'.
They are known assilimators; visitors can be warned the zombies will attempt to eat them, on sight/alert; as with most biot-infections.
Disease Origins (case-specific)Edit
The disease that causes the necrosis that arrives at the biot-infection initially infested via the Xen Dimensional Rift experiment; and experienced forced-covergance with Moon Dust, hybridizing the virus (in Aperture Science experiments; claimed to have been an Ebola, modified at Aperture).
The disease is synonymous with the Rage Virus.
