The Z-Virus victim who became the origin of the resistance serum.
NYM617 was an unidentified female from the New York City area who was detained and isolated during the Z-Virus plague. The world’s best and brightest then used her as a guinea pig for understanding what they could of the virus, and used her body’s reactions to their tests to form the basis of a vaccine.
Due to the nature of the virus, no information is available about NYM617’s prior life. After the resistance serum was distributed and showed its promised effect, she received a closed-casket funeral at civic expense.
