Prompt Title:  They got my back!
Explanation:  5 characters you would want with you during the zombie apocalypse

At the risk of sounding like a crazy doomsday prepper, over the years I’ve developed multiple plans in the event of the zombie apocalypse. Because you gotta be prepared for the unexpected if you expect to survive. 🧟 And who knows what kind of zombies we could face? Will they be the stereotypical slow zombies, or speedy zombies from The Return of the Living Dead? Will they be stupid or will they be capable of thought like in iZombie?

With all of this in mind, I have developed my Zombie Gang Team based on varying skillsets and multiple possibilities.

  1. Guns/Crossbow Expert: Esmae from A Spark of White Fire by Sangu Mandanna. Trained by one of the best teachers around, Esmae is a master with the crossbow and other weapons, making her a great addition for range attacks & headshots especially. Because you know she shot a fish in the eye. Transferable skills, yo.
  2. Knives expert: Lola from Ace of Shades is the obvious choice here. I also want to bring Enne along because she’s badass as hell.
  3. Hunter & Forager: I think that Mairwen Grace, Arthur Couch, and Rhun Sayer from Strange Grace would be a perfect trio for hunting, cultivation, and foraging. You can’t separate them anyways, but they all bring such unique skills that would be perfect!
  4. The Engineer: Josune Arriola from Stars Uncharted by S.K. Dunstall. Not only is she a brilliant engineer that could help our group create and fix things as needed, but she is also a badass fighter!
  5. The Doctor: Mairwen’s mom from Strange Grace as she is a healer.

Which characters would you want on your team during the zombie apocalypse?!

      1. Hahaha, true! I’d be the person that would go on & on about ghosts and demons & everyone will be like, “LISTEN, BECCA, THERE ARE ZOMBIES OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW???? CHILL OUT??” & then I can boop everyone’s nose & tell them everything will be okay & the sun will come out tomorrow.

  3. wow, sounds like you got all your needs covered with experts in every category you’ll need to kick some zombie butt and survive if you get sick. I don’t know the characters but I think I’d want them on my side too.

  4. I haven’t read any of those books, so I’m not familiar with the characters, but it looks like you have a pretty good team. Hopefully their skills will help you survive if there ever is a zombie apocalypse. I’m thinking I’d want someone with magic that could just poof us away when we were in danger — haha!

    1. Hahahahaha the gif is from Shaun of the Dead, which if you haven’t seen I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

      Oooo good question! I am a natural leader so I could make the tough choices and keep everyone safe, plus I have some outdoorsy skills because I am a hiker/backpacker!

      1. I’ll try to find that movie! It looks funny already 😛 And wow, the leader! And hiker! Now I know you a little better 😄 I’d like to be a co-leader, especially in a life-or-death situation. It’s too much pressure to bear on one person’s shoulder, ya know what I mean? 😜

  6. You are right! One can never be prepared enough! But have to start somewhere 😀
