Here’s an idea for a new SI. He’s Called the Eel, because of his ability to shock the survivors. He would be an electrician/Construction worker who wears large black rubber boots, a leather glove on his left hand, and has his right hand bare, with his right sleeve rolled up and a bandaged wound near his elbow (possibly how he got infected).
He would be wearing ear protection, like the other worker infected, along with some bulky protective goggles. These would alter the way he sees the survivors. Instead of seeing their silhouettes through the walls when the move, shoot, or speak, He would detect their electrical fields the same way a shark does for its prey, (and everything else he sees is just in black&white). This Special way of seeing also allows him to see where there are other sources of electricity are, like power boxes/transformers/and even downed power lines, which he can use to quickly recharge his attack.
He attacks the survivors by grabbing them on by the arm, shoulder, or neck (depending on where he’s positioned), The survivor would then yell out, unable to move, before loosing all their strength and falling to the ground. If the survivor has been dealt more than 50% HP through shock damage, they would be instantly capped, and if dealt more than 75 damage in one shock they would die instantly from a heart attack. And the longer a survivor has been shocked, the more side effects would follow: Small amounts would cause slight shivering which would make the cross hair wobble, and longer shocks would cause stiffening in the muscles, slowing their speed and reducing their melee damage.
