Zoey is one of the four playable Survivors in Left 4 Dead. Tier 1 - Submachine Gun variants Zoey, along with Louis and Francis, returns as a non-playable character in Left 4 Dead 2. . When Ellis meets Zoey and crumbles into tongue- tied, love-struck embarrassment, Zoey is never anything other than "all business".

Rochelle is voiced by Rochelle Aytes. Non-Playable Survivors See main article: The primary weapon preference as Survivor Bots are always the same for every Survivor.
In the Left 4 Dead 2 ports of the original campaigns, the original Survivors have different preferences. This is likely an oversight, as the Left 4 Dead Survivors gain the weapon preference of the Left 4 Dead 2 character's slot they fill on the character selection screen.
Francis and Louis however, are not over their right successors as Louis goes over Coach and Francis over Ellis. In the ported campaigns, Bill and Zoey, being placeholders for Nick and Rochelle respectively, use Magnums while Francis and Louis, being placeholders for Ellis and Coach respectively, use dual-wielding Pistols. The "Hit Box" is affected by the body size of Survivors.

Taller, heavier Survivors such as Coach have a slightly larger "Hit Box" than shorter, slimmer Survivors such as Rochelle. A larger Hit Box means a higher chance of receiving friendly fire, and easier aiming for Special Infected. During development, the original Survivors' physical appearance changed in response to an evolving design brief that lead towards making them appear "realistic" in the sense they credibly resemble people who could be encountered in everyday life.
Visuals for Left 4 Dead 2 began with the same term of reference, but, as evidenced by the first screenshots and videos with the exception of Nick, each character's appearance underwent rolling changes and refinement. An early developmental visual of Francis shows him with long, unkempt hair.
It can thus be inferred that Zoey's comment to Francis that she knows how to cut hair is a legacy attribute. In Left 4 Dead, it seems possible that each scenario is geared towards being the "home" of one of the Survivors excluding Rochelle and Nick, who don't seem to say anything about where various landmarks can be found. Bill makes a comment about the trailer in Blood Harvestasking Francis if it reminded him of home, although this is most likely intended as an insult to Francis.
This could also mean that Francis lives in a trailer somewhere. Louis seems to know somewhat trivial pieces of information involving the sewer system of Riverside. He also seems to know his way around Fairfield, even in the sewer; he knows when the Survivors have arrived at the hospital. Like Billhe may insult Francis by making a comment of an alleyway in Crash Courseasking him if it was where he was born, prompting Francis to ask if it's the one he'll die in.
She also states that she has been to Newburg before. Francis is surprisingly knowledgeable about the area of Newburg near the airport, and seems to know his way around the airport itself. Both Bill and Louis appear to know their way around Fairfield, knowing that the subway's Red Line heads straight to Mercy Hospitaland that it is possible to reach the hospital by going through the waterworks which leads into the sewer.
Coach mentions living in Savannah and seems to know his way around well, and also becomes rather offended when Nick responds to talk of a gun store with "Living here is finally paying off. He also knows where the gun shop is and how to get to the mall. In the beta of Left 4 Dead, Zoey and Francis show some sort of affection towards each other.
The Passing | Left 4 Dead Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
This proved to be too distracting, so it was removed. This concept was later revived in form of Ellis' feelings for her in The Passing. Some lines of original Survivors text lines were re-used or a little less changed on new Survivors only voiced by their voice actors.
For example, Bill and Coach say the same phrase when healing other Survivors: It was most likely scrapped due to the amount of doors there were to get to the Survivors, so they could get away if low on health or they didn't want the Infected to open doors.
On the PC, it is possible to spawn the original Survivors in any campaign in Left 4 Dead 2, but if you spawn them directly the game will crash because of a precaching error.
Wooden 42 pound crates of U. K rations are an obsolete class of combat ration that was first issued in World War II. They were intended for short-term consumption only since the calorie content was inadequate to maintain a soldier's physical condition during hard and prolonged exertion. It is assumed that the Survivors sustain themselves on K ration packs, yet it is noticeable that none of them appear to have lost weight as their clothes still fit perfectly.
It is therefore logical to believe that the Survivors spend most of their time holed up in safe houses [thus conserving energy] and that Campaign episodes depict short and intense opportunistic breakouts.[SFM] Left 4 Dead - The Movie
Even when freshly made, the monotonous nature of K rations is well-documented whilst the taste and condition of such items taken from long-term military storage can only be imagined, which may explain Zoey's enthusiasm for peanut butter in Part Three of The Sacrifice comic. In the opening scene of Left 4 Dead 2, however, there are several bags of what appear to be a Peanut M 'n' M's knockoff in a cardboard bin, and Coach can be seen eating some sort of chocolate bar.
This implies that perhaps left-over candy is eaten because it takes a long time to go bad, and is probably easy to find in abandoned stores. In The Sacrifice comicthe military thinks that the original Survivors are carriers, and have been unintentionally transmitting the Infection across Pennsylvania.
Whether this is true or not, or that all immune Survivors are carriers is currently unknown. In Part One, Mora calls himself a Captain. Bill In many ways, Zoey and Bill have a father-daughter relationship. When the tragedy of her parents' deaths is revealed, she hugs him for comfort and later she is seen resting on his shoulder in the evacuation vehicle.
Bill generally seems to be slightly more emotional when Zoey dies  compared to the others. She also seems to reciprocate by caring about his well-being at all times. The Sacrifice comic exposes the underlying strength of Zoey and Bill's relationship when he willingly sacrifices himself to keep Zoey and the other Survivors safe.
However for a while before this event, Zoey is estranged from Bill when she is shocked by how easily he left the Doctor, Jeff, and Annie to die back at Millhaven. She questions his motives and harbors doubts about the trust she has placed in him. She accuses Bill of being capable of cold-heartedly leaving his companions in the lurch if it suited his selfish interests, a charge that taciturn Bill is unable to refute in words.
However, Francis has the insight to explain to Zoey that Bill does these things for the right reasons: While not altogether swayed, she finally understands how much Bill cared for her and the others through the act of sacrificing his life to give them a chance to escape from a land overrun with Infected. Thereafter Zoey takes up Bill's principle of "We look after our own". Since they cannot save everyone, the Survivors must save themselves: She rarely speaks of it and takes on an uncharacteristically serious demeanor when she does so.
Her aggressive and abrupt way of dealing with the Left 4 Dead 2 Survivors also hints at an innately warm-hearted young woman's struggle to cope with Bill's demise, the guilt she may be experiencing in relation to the events leading up to it; all on top of post-combat stress.
Her tone is also notably more commanding and assertive than at any other time previously and this, together with the deference displayed by Louis and Francis, suggests that she has at least partially occupied a team leadership role in the immediate aftermath of Bill's death. Francis Originally Valve intended Zoey and Francis to have a romantic attraction but this was deemed to be "distracting" by play-testers and was subsequently removed.
Nevertheless elements of this nascent relationship are evident since she often pokes gentle fun at Francis and plays off his tough but gauche I hate On the other hand she finds it cute that Francis, despite his tough guy persona, still has "that side of him" when he flirts back with Rochelle.
