Savannah Whitesmith is one of the main characters in The Demon's Light.


At the beginning of the series, Savannah woke up and found herself in an unfamiliar barn with three other teenagers, who would later introduce themselves as Atticus Anoethite, Chris McFarlane, and Melissa Devlin. She quickly realized that she had barely any memory of events prior to waking up at the barn. Due to this, she is rather untrusting of other people, including Atticus, Chris, and Melissa. When the group first met Gabriel Alchemilia, she refused to get into his truck and take the trip to Alchem. Corp, though reluctantly agreed later on.

She was once bitten by a servant of the Demon, and was driven slightly insane from the poison that got into her system. The after-effects of the infection eventually lead her to transform into a demon briefly but she was turned back to her human form with the help of Gabriel Alchemilia. Savannah was replaced by Lisa in season 2 as one of the main characters. It is also revealed that she is the Demon's daughter and is half-siblings with Blood Queen and Kaz. After her dark heritage is revealed, she betrayed the team, with the thought of having power and control corrupting her, and she joined forces with Blood Queen to get revenge on the protagonists for the slaying of the Demon at the end of season 2.


Savannah Whitesmith is a 17-year-old teenage girl with pale skin, long brown hair, and brown eyes. She is of average height, standing at 5"7. Her fashion sense changes depending on her mood, but she commonly wears dark clothing.


Savannah is fairly weak in her human form. Her strength equates to the average human female, and she has no physical abilities or psychic abilities.

However, upon shape-shifting into her demon form, her abilities are greatly expanded. She attains all the abilities of the Demon, such as flight and telepathy. However, this greatly enhanced form does not last forever. If Savannah becomes too exhausted, or she is greatly damaged in battle, she will immediately revert back to her human form.


Oliver Baldwin

Despite neutrality and having conflicting ideologies with the Demon, Oliver tends to have a calm friendship with Savannah, as he sees her as a better ruler than Xeren.


  • As Xeren isn't a true demon, Savannah is only a demigod, as opposed to a halfling.
    • However, she did inherit Xeren's shape-changing abilities, so she can take the form of a demon.
