Vindictive, vain, and versatile, Savanne is a femme zombie that fits the angry-animated-dead trope to a tee. She's also the type to create havoc just for the sake of it, because it amuses her and there's nothing else to do. She has a slightly mother-bear personality when it comes to looking over the others in her district, going by a creed of "Don't touch what's mine and we'll get along fine." She's also very prideful, knowing that even after her heart's stopped beating she can still be a heartstopper with men. Growing up with manners and class, she still practices it and will respect others who do the same. It'll impress her, but only so slightly. She also has a wicked nasty temper and can fly off the handle once annoyed, a lesson that  few members had learned quickly.

-Strength: While her right arm is long gone, most of her power goes into her left one, making her punches/slaps more forceful than the average-well-built male's. She's also got a pretty good kick in those legs.

-Endurance: Built some resistance to her body after being trampled to death, it's an ability that makes her withstand most attacks that would slow down your average zombie and as a side-effect, her limbs can still move on their own when detatched. The only way to "kill" them or keep them from returning to her is by burning them.

-Mind-Fuddling Miasma: A Side effect from the toxic gasses that broke up her party, she's able to secrete noxious gasses that leave humans (or other air-breathers) deranged and confused. Too much inhalation leads to passing out and ultimately death. She usually uses this to make her targets slow down for her to swoop in for the kill.

Originally from Liverpool, England, Savanne Michaels lived a pretty sheltered life. Going to boarding schools and what have you, but like most if not all kids in her situation, she longed to just get away. So by the time she reached adulthood, Savanne moved to the US for college. Although the reasons she gave her parents for going were very convincing ("Better education, I'll be safe...etc."), it is safe to say that she originally wanted to go overseas just to get away from her parents and to party.

Which is exactly what she did during her college years.

Somehow managing to slip by in school with some acceptable grades, she finished college and went into fashion desgining, working as an intern at one of the companies in New York. Charming and with a way of fashion, she easily wormed her way into the main crowd, able to persuade the other members who had been there longer to show her around town and to have fun. Unbeknowest to her, they wanted to take the intern down a few pegs and to "show her her place" in the company.While attending a concert with some friends, the party nearly lasted all night. At some point of early in the morning when things were beginning to slowly die down Savanne couldn't find the group she was with (they already had gotten drunk and left without her), and by the time it was over....Some confidential officials raided the concert to expose some hidden rioters.

Clearly, this caused a wave of panic, and everyone practically ran over each other just to get out of the vicinity. The police force was strong, brutal and...well, comparing them to the group of stoners was a bad match for a fight indeed. Savanne tried to run along with the crowd, but by the time the police forces decided to take drastic measures, she slowed down. They were using an experimental knock-out gas that was supposed to either drive the crowd away, or at least cause the most intoxicated ones to pass out. Savanne's asthma took into effect and she passed out, becoming one of the few who were trampled by the fleeing crowd. She woke up a day later, next in line for embalming fluid in the morgue.

Awakened with new resolve and a missing limb, her freshly after death hunger rose in and she took her revenge on the so called friends she had from the fashion company, claiming them as her first kill.

Relationships with other people:
For the most part, Savanne is pretty cruel and judgmental upon first meeting. It's better that you amuse her than get on her bad side straight away. A good tip in getting on her good side is by giving her compliments. She's pretty self-absorbed but will give you a few minutes of her time if you have a keen eye for her appearance.

The Leaders:
Bullet; GreenTrent Murphy - It's easy to say that when the leaders first came together to create the group, her and Trent did NOT get off on the right foot. They usually bickered, physically fought and taunted one another, but after time had passed they've grown used to each other. At a certain point she started developing feelings for him but didn't want to admit to them right away and basically shut down any advances or hints that were there that he liked her too. It's been awhile since then but she still cares for him....not that you'll find her admitting that anytime soon.
Bullet; RedVikas Sokall - She gets along with him quite well, finding his flirting endeavors amusing. There's nothing but friendly flirting between these two and they get along as good friends, but she still likes to best him at things.
Bullet; PurplePhlox - Her right hand girl and Femme-Fatale Mistress in Crime, Savanne appreciates Phlox's company and her own way of "taking care of business". The girl doesn't speak much so Savanne tends to do the talking for them while Phlox does the actions, but both are do-ers than thinkers. Most of the time.
Bullet; Orange Ryker Odair- The new addition to the Leaders' circle and semi-new resident of the districts, Savanne doesn't know much about him. She plans on giving him a hard time since he IS a newbie, however. Must go through initiation and all of that~

The Members:
Bullet; BlueSamuel Linwood - Another fellow Englishman from the Mother Land, Savanne appreciates the vampire and enjoys having him in her district. She usually supplies him with blood bags found at the hospitals still inhabited by humans, knowing full too well that he prefers having mindful control over his vampire side rather than let the feral, hungrier, and less rational mind take over.
Bullet; GreenShawn Heidrich- Has yet to meet. Another piece of fresh meat. To Savanne he honestly looks quite pathetic since the boy is shy and all around meek, which makes her think he's not worth her time of messing with. Still, she's a tad curious wondering if there's more than meets the eye with him since he is a reaper.
:bulletorange:Noelani Nevaeh - To be honest, Savanne finds the little reaper quite stupid and annoying. Her cheery ignorant personality clashes against Savanne's own live big or die hard mentality, so whenever given the chance she uses Noelani as a scapegoat for whenever things go awry. Or pesters the younger girl's brain with her own quick wit to amuse herself. Whichever comes first at the time.

Other Facts:
-Her accent is very thick,, think of a Scouse accent. Something like a female Ringo Starr from the Beatles.
-Ironically she used to have bad asthma as a child that never went away as she grew into her adult years. This being one of the things that became her downfall, it's also turned into a unique ability for her.
-Most of her fashion is very outdated, or is it? Retro is chic and the world is always changing what it likes and doesn't like. Either way, she steals from thrift stores to keep up her 1960's-1970's fashion. Just because she died with the 60's doesn't mean her clothes have to as well.
-Gogo boots. All the gogo boots.
-And Mod wear. She hails from Great Britain so she likes to represent.
-Her arm was torn off when she died and had healed up before she could find it and use her Endurance ability on it. It's long gone now, but she gets pretty testy when mentioned about the nub that's left.
-Her hat actually covers an injury on her head that knocked out some bits of memory. It's a bit of an open wound, so she prefers to cover it up by either hair or a hat. And aren't hats just darling~?


Anyone remember her? No? Okay. *ollies on out into the sun*

How could I forget Savanne? >w> Which also, by the way, with you doing this new reference sheet for her...comparing it against the old one and when you drew that, it was over two and a half years ago and...LOOK AT THE EVOLUTION IN YOUR ART. LOOK AT THE SKILLLLLLL.

*coughs* Anyways! This is a fantastic sheet for her, Paula, and you did a great job in both drawing her out and in putting so much of her information down really makes her very well rounded. x3 She seems just as cool still as the first time I saw her, and everything that's been done about her here only makes her more awesome. :aww: (I would love to hear her accent, too, if that were possible. XD; )

Well done! 8D
