abstract
  • The Raggedy Man is a zombie and the main antagonist of Stephen King's novel Cell and the 2016 film adaption of the same name. He is one of the zombies which are created due to the virus which is known to the survivors of humanity as ``the Pulse.`` The Raggedy Man often shows up with an army of zombies at his tail; he seems to be a sort of spokesman for the zombie hordes. He is one of the more complicated zombies in the novel, retaining many of his human characteristics and bordering on near-human to absolutely insane. He possesses a vast amount of near-supernatural powers; reputed to be the sealed-off areas of the human brain which the Pulse unlocked. His main power of choice seems to be telepathy. Unlike the other zombies seen in the novel, he does not levitate. He is first encountered by the human survivors at Gaiten Academy in New England and is seen following them several times towards the end of the novel. The main agenda of the Raggedy Man is to spread his army of zombies around the planet and convert as many humans as he possibly can to his hordes to swell his increasing army of Undead. After the novel's protagonists Clay, Tom, Alice, Jordan and Gaiten's Headmaster destroy a sleeping flock of Undead which are in the campus grounds, the Raggedy Man labels the protagonists as "insane" and warns other zombies and humans generally not to touch them. Ironically, the Raggedy Man ultimately perishes when Jordan sets off a bomb installed on a school bus in the Kashwak Carnival; the very same base which the Raggedy Man has been using to convert humans into zombies.
