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

I’ve occasionally wondered what I would do IF a zombie apocalypse occurred. I’m a lover of the great outdoors, and have some wicked good problem solving skills, but during a zombie apocalypse, you need fighting skills and keen survival instincts. Keeping that in mind helped me to pick my top 5 fictional character’s I’d want to have my back in a zombie infested world.

Disclaimer: There are some book spoilers included to fully discuss my choices.


My Team

  • The first person who comes to mind is Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games. She’s used to living off the land and is an excellent shot with a bow. She would be the perfect ally to have to knock the zombies off at a distance and keep us from eating some poisonous plants. No one can deny this girl is a survivor, and hopefully some of her luck and abilities would up my odds of survival as well.
  • The next selections are better as duos, the first being Katsa and Po from Graceling. Those two have graces, meaning they were born with unnatural special abilities. Katsa’s grace gives her the ability to kill pretty much anyone or anything with ease and survive in any environment. Po’s grace gives him the ability to sense everything and everyone around him, and their intentions. He would be so useful in knowing if any zombies or unfriendly fellow survivors are nearby and in trying to get around them.
  • The next fierce duo in mind is Ren and Kishan from Tiger’s CurseThese two Indian princes are trained in just about every style of fighting possible, with bare hands and weapons. Their abilities are enhanced with their tiger strength and senses, making them capable warriors and hunters. Plus, they’re immortal, so I’m hoping that means a zombie bite won’t affect them. Otherwise we’ll be dealing with two very deadly zombie tigers that can’t be killed. Oops.

That’s my list!! Which characters would you want with you during an apocalypse? What do you think of my selection? Let me know down in the comments below.

Good (Zombie) Hunting!
