Undead norns have mutations or loss of the genes that make them die, most norns only have one such gene.
The one that makes them pop their clogs when they have no glycogen in their blood.
The other gene makes them die of old age, which many undead norns still have.
Undead norns are never natural as the death gene is immutable.
The first reported undead norn was Elaine, bred by Kristin372, of the Age of Albia.
Blue segments of genes show mutations, red parts show deletions.
|Nornal Norns||1E 00 00 00 01 03 00 3B 08 80
Receptor for glycogen, die if level is zero
|This shows unmutated genes to compare with below mutated genes.|
|Undead||1E 00 00 00 01 03 00 3B 08 80 FF 03||Cannot move around, though can speak, stand sit and look around. The other mutations in their brains are what are causing their inability to move.|
|Elaine||1E 00 00 00 01 03 00 3B 08 80 FF 03|
|Kiki||1E 00 00 00 01 03 00 3B 08 80 FF 03||Not technically immortal, will die when reaches old age due to extra forest norn genes but cannot die from illness, starvation, glycotoxin etc. The best of these undead norns as she can function as a normal norn.|

|The gene to the left contains
three separate mutations that can all give to never dying norns. They can reach 0% health
but wont die.
See below for more information.

Below is the pure unmutated death gene, it
makes norns die when their glycogen levels reach zero,
this can be due to many reasons such as disease, mutation, poisoning and starvation.

This part of the gene denotes the action to take when glycogen reaches zero.
If this mutated then it is unlikely that the norn would die, it might involuntarily sneeze or sit though!
Test undead norn 1 had this mutation so that he sneezes instead of dying.
1E 00 00 00 01 03 00 F3 08 80 FF 03 Test2
This part of the gene decides which chemical
must be zero for the norn to die, the gene has been altered to antibody 3.
It is possible that the norn might still die in times of extreme disease, but this is unlikely.
1E 00 00 00 02 03 00 3B 08 80 FF 03 Test3
This part of the gene decides what type of
receptor the gene is (usually immune system),
altering this makes the gene change drastically, usually making it senseless.
The Hungry Dead Project
Between the 16th and 18th October 2009 I undertook this breeding
Firstly I created an undead norn from the mum1.gen file. I named
Dracely and Loula had a mixture of the genes I wished to pass on, so I crossed them to get their son Drala and daughter Draula.
Then I introduced Spook, a Ghostly norn to be Draula's mate, their daughter Spola was crossed to create Aaliyah (named after the Queen of the Damned).
I am simplifying the family tree greatly, there were almost forty norns involved at various points.It got quite out of hand!
I also realised that Dracula also has Glycotoxin immunity and
made sure Lestat had a version of it when I modified him.
