Mahlia from The Drowned Cities
Imagine a world where the sea levels have risen to the point where people are forced to live in the high floors of skyscrapers, as they are the only spaces left that aren’t submerged by water. Now add warring militias that make it common practice to drag people off the street and force them into their armies, including children. Mahlia deals with this, goes through hell, and still manages to keep her head and be completely awesome, despite her youth. She’s definitely in contention for our number one draft pick on a post-apocalyptic fantasy team.
