ZombieCleo, or simply Cleo, is a Let's Play commentator and an active member of the HermitCraft server. She was invited onto the server by joehillssays for the HermitCraft map reset on June 2013.[2] She runs a personal Minecraft survival multiplayer server called "Bob" for her friends.[3] Cleo used the Minecraft account Cleophas until May 2012.[4]


Cleo worked as a teacher in real life and is proud of her career. Her previous job was a geotechnical engineer working on public buildings. While she was working on a school, she became inspired to become a teacher.[5] She has a degree in geology and taught science in school for about eight years. Her students do not know about her life outside school.[6][7] She left the job due to her health but plans to work as a substitute teacher instead.[8]

The name ZombieCleo comes from her World of Warcraft character where she was the undead. She describes herself a "reclusive nerdy Internet geek."[5]

Cleo started her YouTube channel to keep in touch with her best friend in what she was doing.[5] Cleo's first experience in Minecraft was Super Hostile after she watched the Yogcast playing it and bought the game because of them.[10] She will not be doing collaborations with Vechs due to their busy schedule and will not join MindCrack if asked to join. She considers YouTube a hobby and does not have plans to work full time on it even if it becomes feasible. She doesn't want to make something she enjoys a lot into a job.[5]

Many of Cleo's builds on the server were inspired by the builds on her own personal server, Bob.[3] Cleo has built a temple as her home at town[11] and helped build the Hanging Gardens, a group project to build the ancient wonders of the world.[12] At the new 1.7 town, she built two tall glass towers connected by a glass bridge on top of the peaks of the hills.[13]

Cleo is currently building a museum called the Natural History and Science Museum, inspired by the London Natural History Museum. She plans to build various exhibitions in it.[14] The museum centerpiece is a giant dinosaur skull with gold teeth.[15] Displays in the museum includes King Khufu,[16] Koh e Poor, notable minerals, and ancient armor.[17] Floating "balloons" are used to light the place. Underneath the museum, Cleo dug a massive chamber that would house Garthulu the squid.[18] It is meant represent a Cthulhu that follows her everywhere she goes and will appear out of a massive portal. The walls are lined with sand and dark platforms for mobs to spawn.[19] She added a massive hall called the Hall Of Theoretical Biology where plants with custom names are on display.[20]

Cleo started a publishing and distribution company called Cleo's Copying Ink in the commercial district at the new town. There she writes the Hermiton Herald periodical that details current events and posts advertisements on the server. She also started a flower shop nearby.[21]

Minecraft skin[edit]

Cleo's current skin is a zombified version of her previous skin, which can be seen in the background image of her TwitchTV and Twitter profiles.
