Character History

Graphic Novel:Wireless, Part 1

Zahava is one of the first female pilots for the IDF. In 1967 during the Six-Day War, Zahava shoots down two MiGs. In 1989, in Jerusalem, Israel, Zahava boards a bus. As the vehicle careens off the road in a suicide attack, Zahava and her mother are killed, leaving Hana to survive in the hospital, presumably alone.

Graphic Novel:Wireless, Part 4

Hana, wondering if she is "too reverent", imagines her mother joyously celebrating her triumphs in the Six-Day War--Zahava jumps around her jet waving the Israeli flag.
