First appearance: Robin/Spoiler Special
Efia is a small African girl Stephanie befriended during the years she was presumed dead, but was really in Africa with Leslie. Efia is very polite, and looks up to Stephanie quite a bit, referring to her as "Miss Brown". She expressed a desire to go to America with her. She has a dog named Buni she is very attached too, and is unafraid of the wild animals in Africa.
Efia is horribly afraid of the religious fanatic Katavi, believing he is truly cursed and a devil full of mischeif and malice. Stephanie was forced to save Efia's village from Katavi, and had to leave Efia to get Leslie Thompkins medical attention for a gunshot wound.
