It took me about an hour to do this. I did it in french, if somebody is interested I may do it in english. Many thanks to "The Warp" and his character template! Hope you enjoy it a little.

Her abilities are a mix between Sparky and John Price. She's maybe a bit overpowered but I really want her to survive!
3 verses: one overpowered in french, one also overpowered in english and one reskin of Sparky (same stats and ability)

If I've got this right, she can copy any ability of any other survivor in the game. If she gets a bite directly from the exposure die, she treats it like a normal wound. She doesn't take part in the propagation bites when other survivors are bitten.

So... extremely strong, imo.

That's coorect.
too strong for my tastes even though i really liked the idea.
I'd personally remove the "copy another character's ability" part (keping all the remaining part) and slightly lowering the stats with attack 3+ and search 3+ (or attack 4+ search 2+.. something like that)

I agree Andrea.

Treat bite as normal wound. 3+\3+ stats.

One of my favorite characters in "zombie" lore.

The problem is she's now just a weaker sparky.

Ok, I just uploaded an english verse. thanks for the help with the translation.

well actually she is perfect for the "Hardcore variant!"
I did her because of Sparky. A dog carrying stuff and guns, driving cars... seemed very weird to me... but with Ellie I didn't just want a copy/paste of Sparky.

I'll look for a weaker verse with Ellie, without "copy ability" and with 3+ stats, but that way you better choose Sparky.

Maybe she can start with a "switchblade"?

Why don't you just reskin Sparky into Ellie? So much easier, and fits the game better than Sparky does.

alright...
I won't do endless updates with Ellie... so this one is just a "reskin" of Sparky into Ellie. she has exactly the same stats and ability.
Now for me came the hardest stuff, creating a pawn for Ellie...

That's a cool solution to use Ellie as a replacement for Sparky for those people that don't like Sparky. So I definitely prefer the solution where she's just a re-skin of Sparky.

However, a Priority of 10 seems a little unfair for her. I understand Sparky being a 10 because if you have to make a choice between a dog and a person, the dog has to go. But Ellie!

I'd actually like to see a new game scenario with Ellie as an NPC. Her immunity makes her super important, so maybe the Colony has to keep her safe until the government arrives. But she's lost and in danger! Find her!!

There's the rub-- thematically, she'd be much higher, but game balance wise she needs to stay a 10, since she has so much protection built in vs. bites.
