    If becoming undead severely alters you to the point where your physiology is no longer human, then you're probably not going to be considered the same species anymore, even if you look human. It really depends on what being "undead" entails though.

    In any case, you need Neme-"kindred"-sis for that.

    I mean, I know it's a running gag amongst G1 fans, but seriously: What kind of shit did Starscream have on Megatron that let him get away with it? Or was Starscream the 'special' little brother of Megatron's wife that he had to keep around to keep her happy?
    I believe the better question is whose the puppet and whose the puppeteer.

    Nah, see: Your biology is still human. You're not really functioning on biological principles anymore, but those aren't relevant to species distinctions.

    Take this jolly young lass:



    Let's say she becomes a Vampire. Is she the same species as a human Vampire? No, she's an Elf.

    Interesting, but she doesn't have to be the same species as a human vampire to not be an Elf.

    Which is why, in a setting where multiple races can become undead, they're best categorized with their base species name as well as the undead variant, if applicable. So "Human Vampire" wouldn't be the same thing as an "Elf Vampire", because of differences in the base species physiology...unless of of course becoming an undead variant makes their physiology pretty much identical.

    Though again, it depends on how what makes the vampire a vampire. In some cases they're just the base species with superpowers, sometimes they're completely different creatures entirely.

    And a Shark.

    I've booked my driving test. Not too confident, but I've never backed down from a challenge. Determined to just enjoy it.
    Good God man! Why are you slapping a monkey.

    ...And now I'm imagining you attempting to tear off your shirt whilst yelling "Oh, I cannot RESIST such a CHALLENGE!", followed by the DVLA clerk telling you to just put down the whiskey flask and fill out the bloody form.

    Alcohol calms the nerves. Make sure you have plenty of it before giving the test.

    ...also, good luck. ^^

    I already scare my driving instructor by grinning maniacally through the entire lesson.

    "No! We cannot take a picture of the car as it is and say it's proof that you can parallel park!"

    "When I said reverse into any car parking space, I meant one of the car park spaces in the car park we were in twenty minutes ago."

    "The truck will always win! I don't care how determined you are."

    "DON'T TAKE ON THE BUS!!! DON'T TAKE ON THE BUS!!!"

    "No they are not trained murderers. They are fellow drivers."

    "Please stop shouting at the man who cut you off. The hand gestures are unnecessary too."

    Genuine quotes off the top off my head from the past year.

    Alcohol is the answer to any question.

    I'm tempted to try this on my next outing.

    ...Though as the previous guy cancelled the rest of the block of lessons and gave me a refund because apparently I "have no concept of danger", maybe that's not the best plan.

    I wish I was a talking Diglett, so I could taunt people with vague and contradictory references to what of my body lies beneath the ground.

    Yeah, that was right when she reformed, and you could see her development after having the responsibility of a second team of mutants to raise, especially after the Hellions didn't work out.

    I've come to the realization that if you have a basement with a garage or outdoor entrance it's free invitation to every spider in the known universe and a few others we're better off not knowing exist.
    Yeah I give up. They would need like a bajillion UNs to take it out. And they would all have to work.
