Christabel Davenport is a character from the Surgeon stories. She is a member of a group of students who join forces with a resistance group to fight the Great Intelligence and with these students returns in The Mammal Wars.
She is a twenty seven year old brunette woman with black hair, blue eyes and fair skin. It is not known how close she is to Abigail Huntsman but she certainly copies her style of clothing to a degree as Davenport's clothing consists of a turquoise top, black leggings and black boots in the same style as Huntsman which barely change in her return.
Very little is known about Christabel's personality but it is assumed that she is friends with Abigail because when she is introduced by her leader, she is shown standing by her side alongside Clementine Galbriath. She is further shown to be very loyal to Abigail and is also very loyal.
The Surgeon stories:
Christabel is first shown in this story as a group of five girls who attack the Greyfriar's Kirkyard to save the Surgeon and his companion Ghazal Rashidi from a hostile group of Robot Yeti. It is assumed that she is the one who tells Abigail that there are too much Yeti and as such Abigail unleashes more Yeti into the Kirkyard to fight the Yeti that were awoken by Ghazal.
Once at a new location in the form of Edinburgh Castle, she is the first girl to be introduced to the Surgeon by Abigail but before Ghazal asks why they saved her and the Surgeon, the girls take the pair to a new location in the form of the Kirk of the Canongate.
Inside the Canongate, the girls take the Surgeon and Ghazal to a room in the chapel that is filled with more girls, women and men both dressed in military fatigue and tight clothing and leathers like much of the women and girls in the chapel. Christabel is shown by Abigail's side watching her leader's right hand girl introduce her own group to the Surgeon and Ghazal and is later ordered to merge with the group.
Once they merge, the girls are dismissed and are permitted to mix with other people in the room. With the return of Hester Cartridge and Kierra Hastings however, the girls are ordered to rally for the final battle on the Great Intelligence alongside several Yetis that have been impregnated with the Human Factor.
The battle carries to the roof where the Surgeon leaves the girls for the Intelligence which is eventually destroyed by the combined might of the resistance groups.
Christabel returns in The Mammal Wars where she is no longer a student and instead acts as a criminal. The name of her original group is also changed to "Britain's Angels" all of whom have the ambition to integrate into the Vixen criminal organization or rather its British branch and become Vixens themselves, like the Romanian sisterhood in the East.
She first appears with the rest of her gang at the Buckinghamshire New University in the events hall, a building that has been abandoned a month prior to the events of The Mammal Wars and like the rest of the Angels, listens attentively to what her leader is telling them; unlike Felicity Barbrige however who is distracted by the sound of whooping and two shadowy figures, Christabel remains focused.
That is, until the whoops start to get more louder and frequent at which point, the Angels become slowly scared and think that the source of the whooping is coming for them. In High Wycombe, the Angels as well as the whole of Buckinghamshire ignore the warning to stay at home and instead come out in the open to see "Superfox" as their children call him.
But it's also here where the Angels and most of Buckinghamshire see more of the whooping animal; they see that it has a sloping spine which makes it out to be some kind of hyena, but that's it. The only other thing that the animal receives is a name, courtesy of Felicity Barbrige who names it "Jomnune".
The Angels are forced to watch another animal appear: The Shadow Cat as Clementine Galbraith calls it but what Felicity Barbrige calls Vlaasarak who actually goes to fight Jomnune alongside Seslinian. Once the fight goes to Sheephouse Wood, Abigail declares that the Angels will expand even with the threat of The Mammal Wars.
Along with the rest of the Angels, Christabel is forced undercover by a combination of Jomnune and the British government who have activated Operation Temperer which has deployed 2,550 armed police officials on the streets all over the United Kingdom, forcing not only the Angels undercover but the organization which they wish to integrate themselves into: The British Vixens.
Despite this though, the Angels are still determined not to let this stop their expansion and during a speech made by her leader, she takes her place in front of Abigail with the rest of the Angels and cheers as Abigail makes the declaration of:
"I promised that the Angels would get an expansion, and Abigail has always kept her promises. Jomnune may have forced police onto the streets but he hasn't taken away our freedom and if we are to get into the Vixens then we have to be brave. This time, neither soldier nor hyena will prevent us from expanding! And that is not a promise but it is something that will happen!"
Following on from Outback Vixen, Christabel remains as part of the Angels where she is first seen in the Buckinghamshire New University gym in front of a projection of the face of Claribel Bloodworth, the now leader of the British Vixen branch, having previously served in the military in The Super Soldiers.
Now as part of the Angels, Claribel orders Clarissa to reveal her captive which Davenport does when she unmasks the Angels' fourth prisoner Jodie Russell.
