Origin: Kybo, Africa
Habitat: Kybo, Africa
General Description: A child survivor of a shipwreck near the shores of Kybo (Africa), Zita was raised by her mother to rule over the other Caucasian female survivors. At first, it was hard for Zita to keep the African natives in line, but soon she figured out the only way to achieve that – appearing at their council meetings. This innovative yet simple way of conducting colonial policy, mysteriously guarantees the natives' obedience, and provides Zita with unrivaled power over these parts - nothing happens in this region of Africa that Zita doesn’t learn about within a day or two via the mysterious Jungle Underground.
Friends, Associates, and Sidekicks: Other Amazons
Sworn Enemies: Female competitors
Special Powers: Leadership skills
Weapons of Choice: Poison darts of her Amazon warriors
Weaknesses: Strong Caucasian men. Zita is a powerful woman but like most women she secretly dreams of being a housewife, married to a handsome Caucasian man of course... Or so we are lead to believe...
Hobbies: Hunting endangered species, rescuing handsome Caucasian men and keeping them for her pleasure
Pet Peeves: Outsiders, unless they happen to be handsome Caucasian men.
Best Lines: - I'm glad you're inclined to feel so sensible about it because I would have had you killed rather than give him up. You see, here in the jungle such things are very easily managed, and I'm not bound by the conventional laws of society that hamper you. Greg says I'm more than half savage, and maybe I am. All I know is that I'm willing to fight for what I want. And I won’t stop short of anything to get it.
Total Estimated Power Rating: 9
5 Intellect Points + 3 Base Physical Strength Points + 1 Weapon Points for poison darts
Danger Level: Medium. Zita does not like strangers. She is a half-savage and is not bound by society rules. She’ll kill you if she considers you dangerous, or simply if it suits her fancy.
NOTE: Zita is not dangerous to handsome Caucasian men. Especially if they don’t mind spending the rest of their lives in tropical paradise surrounded by scantly (by 1940s standards) dressed Caucasian women and endless miles of stock footage.
Identification: Ask anyone in Africa to point you in the direction of the white she-devil of the jungle – they’ll show you.
NOTE: Do not confuse Zita, the white she-devil of the jungle, with Barbara Bush, the white she-devil of Texas.
How to Avoid: Don’t go on safaris in Kybo. Even if your boyfriend is lost in those parts. If ivory hunters don’t kill you - lions will. If lions don’t kill you – Zita will. Unless you are a handsome Caucasian man, of course.
Suggested Killing Techniques: Try to kill Zita before her Amazon warriors get you. One on one she is really not that dangerous. Especially if you are a handsome Caucasian man.
Additional Character Notes: Did I mention, Zita likes handsome Caucasian men? Let me restate that – Zita likes her coffee white. Like her men…
