A razor is a bladed tool primarily used in the removal of unwanted body hair through the act of shaving. Straight razors with open steel blades, also commonly known as cut-throats, were the most commonly used razors before the 20th century. Straight razors consist of a blade sharpened on one edge. The blade can be made of either high carbon steel, which is slower to hone and strop, and holds an edge longer, or stainless steel, which hones and strops quickly, but has a less durable edge.

A reporter is a type of journalist who researches and presents information in certain types of mass media. Reporters gather their information in a variety of ways, including tips, press releases, sources (those with newsworthy information) and witnessing events. They perform research through interviews, public records, and other sources. The information-gathering part of the job is sometimes called "reporting" as distinct from the production part of the job, such as writing articles. Reporters generally split their time between working in a newsroom and going out to witness events or interview people.
Resurrection represents the ability of a deceased individual to return to life. This process may occur through either scientific means or through occult ritualism, but may also occur as a result of unexplained phenomena. In some cases, the individual is restored fully, in others, they are resurrected as some undead entity. This phenomena occurs mostly in media involving supernatural or paranormal forces. Zombie fiction is the most basic example of seeing the dead brought back to life.
