Writing a screenplay set during a zombie apocalypse, and wanting to set my characters apart a bit with their fighting styles and choice of weapons during action scenes. There's a group of 5 of them, and I really only have two of them down. ​ The first one is Jack. His story is one where he feels withdrawn and lonely. He pretends like he's fine, but really, killing zombies -- who are still people, mind you -- really gets to him. He listens to music to kinda distract him when he's killing zombies, and he cues everything to his music. He's really goofy, and is prone to do clumsy stuff, like dropping his gun when he tries to look cool unholstering it. His weapon of choice is a pistol, or when he's in close-quarters, a small knife. Can kill from a distance, no huge splattering, and nice and clean. Something bad does happen to him, and he breaks, which causes him to absolutely slaughter a bunch of people with his knife in a really horrifying way. ​ The second one is Mick. He's a really tortured soul. Had to watch his family die slowly from infection, killing them before they went so they wouldn't turn to zombies, only to find out that they'd become zombies anyways, so he had to kill them again. So he has nothing to live for, really. He has a really dark sense of humor, and plays it fast and loose and risky. His weapons of choice are a machete, for cutting off limbs, and a shotgun, for making a mess everywhere and splattering brains all over the place. ​ The other three, though, I want to make them just as distinct as the other two. ​ One of them is Staci. She's the most skilled of the five at combat, and she's very quick and agile. I'm kinda looking for weapons that fit this style. I was thinking someone that is agile and flexible (i.e. a great athlete) would have something like a dagger and a bullwhip. While the bullwhip isn't the most realistic (mostly used for tripping), don't want to go down the rabbit hole of throwing knives and *really* unrealistic stuff like that. What kind of gun do you think would fit someone that is quick and agile? Obviously it's not Call of Duty, there's no SMGs or anything, lol. Perhaps a pistol as well? Not sure. ​ Then there's Andy. Big, dumb, jacked. Possibly ex-military. He's the grunt of the group, the one who gets stuff done just through sheer, brute force. Up-close, definitely his fists, but from a distance, I'm not sure. Was thinking a shotgun as well, but I'm not sure if it'd fit that fighting style. ​ Lastly, there's Zoey. She's the least-adjusted to the apocalypse (always had Andy there to watch her back), but can still hold her own. Don't want to make her weak (because she, along with Jack, is one of the two "main" protagonists), but I also don't want her to just be an absolute badass like Staci. This is the one I'm having the hardest time with, deciding her style. The other four were pretty much meant for the apocalypse (even if Jack has to cope, he's still more-than-okay in it), but I want Zoey to be more of a "regular" person. The foil, almost. Perhaps similar to Jack (pistol and knife), but without all the pizazz? ​ I dunno. There's no right or wrong answer, just looking for ideas.
