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.


Name Genes Analysis

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.

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.

They have other edits too. Made by Norngirl



Here is a pack of Undead norns from the Norn and Grendel Paradise.

Mindy and Quintin are share a mother.
Mindy is the 'father' of Pearl

Xanthippe and Xiffer are full siblings.
Yardley is mother and father to Xanthippe.

Uliann and Unice are not closely related to the others.

They have  been analysed and they are all lack death genes, and some also lack ageing genes.
None seem to act like normal norns whatsoever.




The Undead Project

This section describes by explorations in creating undead norns.



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.

1E 00 00 00 01 04 00 3B 08 80 FF 03    Test1

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 project.
I decided to produce norns that were of the Ghostly breed, and had all Vampire and Undead genes.
Of course I could have edited a vampire, but that would have been boring!

Firstly I created an undead norn from the mum1.gen file. I named her Lovely.
Then I bred with her and Dracula to get their son Dracely and daughter Loula.

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).



Lazarus cross, a symbol of brining the dead back to life.


I am simplifying the family tree greatly, there were almost forty norns involved at various points.It got quite out of hand!

My frustration led me to genetically engineer Aaliyah to make sure her clone son Lestat had the two missing genes (out of a total of seven).

I also realised that Dracula also has Glycotoxin immunity and made sure Lestat had a version of it when I modified him.

The Age of Vampirism


In generation 65 (around the year 2000) a norn named Vlad was artificially given the vampire gene from Dracula.
By generation 75 his vampiric descendants took over all of Albia.
In generation 78 Ager accidentally bred into the population and his descendants began to replace this gene.
I finally noticed what had happened and helped this along with some gene editing.
By generation 83 things were back to nornal (in the year 2003)
