A member of the Kherubim, Savant is the daughter of Zannah, also known as Zealot
, and Majestros, also known as Majestic
. Unwilling to give up being a warrior in exchange for motherhood, Zannah gave her daughter to be raised by the child's grandmother, Lady Harmony. The child, named Kenesha, was raised under the belief that Harmony was her mother and Zannah her sister. Savant's interests drifted away from those of her warrior mother, and she became fascinated by archaeology and history. As an archaeologist, she found many magical items, including seven-league boots and a bottomless bag.
Savant was created by Jim Lee and Chris Claremont.
