Character Information

Risa Megan Ward is Connor Lassiter's girlfriend. She was once a ward of the state of StaHo Ohio 23 before escaping and meeting Lev Calder and Connor. She later becomes the chief medic of the Graveyard.

Physical Appearance

Risa's pretty. Not in the way Ariana was pretty—in a better way. . . Risa has a natural kind of beauty.

–Connor, Unwind

She has brown hair. She was described by Connor as pretty, possessing a natural kind of beauty.


Growing up as a state of the ward, she had always ben under the pressure to be great in her field, which was music in her state home. She was a wonderful pianist but always noticed even the smallest mistakes she made. She was also shown to be very streetwise while she was on the run with Connor and Lev. She is also good at taking care of children since she was sometimes assigned to nurseries in the state home.

Without realizing it, though, she had also become quite good with several other things noted by others around her, such as her survival and medical skills. After staying in the Graveyard as a medic, she realized she wanted to go down that road and be a doctor someday, if she survived past 18.

She strongly opposes Unwinding, to the point that she refused to undergo a transplant to replace her shattered spine with an Unwind's, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down. Eventually, though, she is forced to undergo the treatment and finds guilty pleasure in being able to walk again.


Her name "Risa" may be derived from the Spanish word "sonrisa" which means smile, as stated by a Hispanic kid Risa once met.

Being a ward of the state, she shares the surname "Ward" with other wards of the state.
