Real Name: Kenesha
Search for 'Savant (Wildstorm)' on Amazon
Savant's real name is Kenesha. She is the daughter of Lord Majestros (aka Mr. Majestic) and Lady Zannah, better known as Zealot. However Zannah, wanting to be a warrior, could not be a mother. Zannah chose not to kill her child, but to ensure her daughter's happiness, Zannah's mother offered to pass the child off as her own instead. She named the child Kenesha, which means "The Survivor". This has lead Kenesha to believe she is actually Zannah's sister, rather than daughter.
Like the other Kherubim on Earth, Kenesha and her mother Zannah were stranded thousands of years ago when their Explorer ship crashlanded after a battle with a Daemonite warship. Kenesha and the other survivors were scattered, forced to hide themselves amongst the human population. Their enemies had likewise been forced down, and though less humanoid, the Daemonites used their powers of possession and shapeshifting to blend in too. For the next few millenia, a secret war raged, with the Kherubim defending the vulnerable and oblivious humans from their would-be conquerors.
Kenesha's mother, Zannah, embraced the Coda, a warrior lifestyle, and took the name Zealot. However Kenesha chose another path, becoming interested in archaeology. At one point subsequent to this, Kenesha was poisoned, and in order to save her life, Zealot made a deal with a Witch named Tapestry. The witch healed Kenesha, but took a century of servitude from Zealot in return. Realising Tapestry was trying to reshape her personality to make them more alike, Zealot made her sister promise to kill her should the witch succeed. Over the years she eventually began a love of history and became a pioneer in the field of archaeology. During this period she discovered the legendary 7 League Boots which allow Savant to run increadibly fast and teleport herself to various locations. She also came into possession of a mystic bag that seemingly has no bottom. She uses the bag to store many of her treasured finds, which usually she can somehow find and pull out of the bag's opening no matter what size or length the item inside seems to be.
In modern times, Zealot helped found a team of warriors, the WildC.A.T.S., to fight the Daemonites. When the original team appeared to have been killed, Kenesha (now calling herself Savant) joined forces with another Kherubim, Majestros (a.k.a. Mr. Majestic), and formed a new team to carry on their legacy. At the time both Savant and Majestic were oblivious to their relation to one another. The team was however short lived, but Savant stayed with and helped out the WildC.A.T.S. on occasion.
