Nanite Repair (Ex)

A nano-zombie’s nanites heal it, restoring a 5 Hit Points per hour. Once per day as a full action, a nanoswarm can restore 1d8 Hit Points to itself or any construct touched with the technological subtype.

Create Spawn (Ex)

An uncontrolled nano-zombie will “dust” a corpse with its nanites if not engaged in combat. In 1d4 minutes the corpse will rise with the same zombie template nano-zombie.


Environment any
Organization any

Unlike a typical zombie, the flesh of a nano-zombie has stopped rotting. From a distance, it might even appear alive were it not for the faint blue glow given off by the nanites actively repairing and animating the corpse.

Nano-zombies are created by “dusting” a corpse with zombie dust, a nanocolony which allows the corpse to be reanimated and controlled by a computer. When nano-zombies are encountered, they will either be controlled or uncontrolled. Uncontrolled zombies are arguably more dangerous because they actively work towards creating additional corpses to use their “dust” ability on.
