A very small subset of the infected experienced an unexplainable variation in the H1Z1 symptoms. They acquired the ability to regenerate, but kept all their mental faculties and suffered none of the aggressive behavior. Nicknamed Z1s by the media, they came from every walk of life and soon found themselves falling into the role of heroes.
Davina is the ultimate tactician and adaptable to almost any combat style. She never goes into an Invitation with a set strategy, but rather, she takes whatever is coming at her and focuses on turning an opponent's strategy against them. She is masterful at reading people.
A former Australian Rules Footballer, Tommy was instrumental in developing the early training techniques for Z1 squads and is the founder of The Invitation.
When competing, Tommy wastes zero time before charging into the midst of a conflict, guns blazing. Finding cover holds no interest for him, he much prefers to go toe-to-toe, out in the open, and may the best shot win. Intimidation tactics are key to his strategy, and when his hulking frame is running full speed directly at you, bullets flying, it can make even the most steadfast hand go shaky. His Invitation strategy is to take on as many opponents as possible and to eliminate them as quickly as possible. Patience is for cowards.
For Li Wei, stealth is the true route to victory in The Invitation. Any other approach is foolishness and the sign of a weak will. He engages in a firefight only when absolutely necessary, and when he does, it is with deadly precision, drawing as little attention as possible. He is not an opponent you want to run into, one-on-one, close quarters. Before the Z-Panic, Li Wei worked as a high-rise window washer, dodging death on several occasions when his scaffolding collapsed. He fears nothing beyond failure.
A rancher's daughter, Kamila has been shooting long range rifles since she was six years old, chasing predators away from her father's herd. Keeping her distance from other combatants is vital to her strategy, so she is always on the move. She will only ever take one shot before she quickly moves to another location, to keep enemies guessing. Hanging directly above her bed is the upper half of a coyote skull, a bullet hole right between the eyes. The skull belonged to the very first predator kill she had as a child.
