Since her childhood, Sawat was induced by her father to learn martial arts, saying that nothing is better to develop one’s ethos. Her overprotective mother, however, didn’t like the idea of her little girl doing “hazardous” activities. But Sawat’s will power was bigger, and after some insistence, she and her father convinced her mother to let her have muay thai lessons. Even barely starting the lessons, she quickly developed an interest for krabi krabong as well, which skyrocketed the concerns of her mother. Again the will power of the youngster prevailed over the motherly protection, and Sawat soon started taking lessons of her new martial art of interest. Faithfully training over the years, one day at school Sawat saw the perfect opportunity to put in action the skills and ethos achieved by her efforts: she stood against some bullies harassing an exchange student from Malaysia, known as Lily. Although the first time got only verbal, the day after Sawat’s tolerance with the bullies went through the roof, which turned into a demonstration of pure muay thai beating that the bullies probably never forgot. The following appreciation from the Malaysian student caused Sawat and Lily to become instant “BFFs”. But Sawat got another gift from that occasion: she now knew what she wanted from her life, and that was “helping people anytime, anyplace, anyhow” - her personal motto to days. Often traveling the world in charity duty for the ‘Helpers United’ NPO along with Lily, Sawat also boldly stands against evil “anytime, anyplace, anyhow”.
Curiously, Sawat has an unpredictable personality: sometimes she’s a peppy child, sometimes a typical carefree teen girl, sometimes a serious and responsible lady. Despite the mix of behaviors, her mood is frequently the best possible. She simply loves to hang out with people, specially to spend hours of talking. Strangely enough, there’s only one thing that can turn her mood down - and it occurs in a good basis: anytime after a fight (usually between five minutes and one hour after) she gets pretty depressive, preferring to be all alone, wondering if it really worth stand in favor of good. Although it always happens, her friends guarantee she’ll never turn against good, once she always get better.
Isn't she a cutie?
When I first created Sawat - or "Sawa", once when I first created her I had no idea there's no Thai female name as that - she was supposed to be the main feline girl among my OCs. Sure, nowadays she got officially "dethroned" by Ye-ye, however I intend to keep the same importance she usually had on my homemade comic stories.
As already told on her sketch, her design got drastically changed, resulted from a "design recycling" from a cancelled tickling webcomic of mine. Her old design can be seen on Homemade comic tickle
