Ghouls are smarter, intelligent undead beings that are tainted enough by dark forces to turn their victims into zombies after eating them. Ghouls are also faster and stronger than the normal zombies in comparison. The Group have found ghouls during the attack on Boar’s End along with normal Zombies. The Ghouls seemed to direct the Zombies to an extent, and were smart enough to figure out puzzles like destroying Spring’s Forcefield before attacking the victim inside. The Zombies were not this smart, and would passively gnaw and bite at the Forcefield instead of actually attacking it. Ghouls and Zombies are susceptible to Holy Symbols and a truly faithful person can repel them.
