Xanthippe "Xan" Holmes
23 years old
Before Outbreak Job:
-Using a weapon of any sort
-Talking about what happened to her husband
-Putting others above herself
Xanthippe is a tomboy, she is free spirited and creative. She has a short temper when it comes to someone messing with those she cares or loves and doesn't put up with anyone's crap. Xan is very honest and will tell you the truth, even if you don't want to hear it. However she is very open minded and shows empathy towards others.
Xanthippe is protective over Max. She has great maternal instincts, but she does give Max some tough love sometimes. She is sweet, and friendly once you get to know her. Xanthippe doesn't trust easy though especially after the outbreak and can be a bit hostile towards people.
Xanthippe is caring and would do anything for the people she cares about. That is her downfall, Xan wants to always help and put others before her.
Growing up Xanthippe was the youngest child of 5. She grew up in a household filled with boys, as her mother had passed away shortly after Xan's birth. Xanthippe was always hanging around her brothers and trying to fit in with the boys, she would play football, fix cars and even learned how to fight.
Xan never really related to the females, she was a guy's girl, a tomboy, so during her school years she would get made fun of. Most of the rumors consisted of Xan sleeping around or something, which often got Xanthippe in trouble as she would lose her temper on the one who said the rumor.
Xanthippe was a grade A student though. She had plans to ditch the small town life and go out to make something of herself. However at the age of 16 Xan met a boy, Lance, they fell in love. However an accidental pregnancy and a year later they welcomed their son, Maximus into the world.
But that didn't stop them from going out and accomplishing their dreams. Xanthippe went to college to become a paramedic as her husband went to West Point to join the military.
Lance was home when the outbreak started. He did everything to prepare Xan in case he was no longer with her or Max. Unfourntley that fear came true when he sacrificed himself to a horde of zombies.
Now Xanthippe and Max are alone in a cold, cruel world filled with the living and undead monsters.
She sings to Max to calm him down

Maximus is a very friendly child, he has always been the type to talj to strangers or make friends easily. He is naive to the world around him, and is also very curious about it. He has a very adventurous side like his father once had. Max is sweet, and is a HUGE Mama's boy, he can't help it though especailly after the death of his father.
After the outbreak Max became a little more reserved and stuck to speaking to only his mother. He has become cautious of his surroundings, and protective over his Mother.

Due to his reckless behaviour Max has had a few broken bones in his short life. But that never stopped Max from exploring the world around him. Max just turned 6 when the outbreak happened, he never got a proper brithday party.
Max has asthmatic attacks once in a while
