Avani is a runner and sister of Celeste Wilson. She has melanoma cancer, and is taken care of by Celeste and her group of runners.
Avani is Celeste's sister and was a Runner until she developed melanoma cancer, which caused her to become bed ridden. Celeste managed to hold back the metastases, but in order to cure the cancer she would need a prototype vaccine. Such a vaccine was being developed by Raposa. Celeste had a deal with Black November that if she would steal the vaccine for them, they would synthesize it and give her back enough to cure Avani. It would turn out, however, that Dogen also would want this vaccine for himself, which led him to recruit Faith to steal it for him. Once Faith learned that Celeste had the vaccine, she attempted to steal it from Celeste.
- Avani is a reference to Avian Flu.
