I've been thinking about this the whole day and its driving me nuts guys! So in my story there are a bunch of undead that were created by an artificial virus carrying artificial intelligence and mutated genome. The result were a race of badly mutated bodies controlled by a single hive protocol controlled by 8 people. I've been trying to think of a name to call them. They are described as a bunch of bloated fluid filled bodied, many of them their heads have been pushed out with a protruding sensory organ coming out of the neck area to detect prey. They mainly scratch but some variants may have heads and protruding worm like appendages. I just can't seem to think of a very original or scary name to call them. Flayers... The Bloats.... Scratchers? These monsters serve as a crucial part of the story as this outbreak is part of what made this setting the way it is. The rise of robotic soldiers and private militaries to combat a messy regional situation. Which profitted certain parties immensely and allowed them to clear some of their rivals.
