Dekka Talent is a 15 year old African-American girl with the ability to 'cancel gravity' from a small area, causing everything in the area to be lifted into the air. She was part of the Coates freaks who were trapped by Caine. She, along with Brianna and Taylor were saved by Sam. Dekka is a very internal person who does not talk about herself, especially not about her thoughts or feelings. Because of this, people consider her threatening and scary. She's tough and always there to help, even in dangerous situations. She is a lesbian and has a crush on Brianna. She is fifteen years old and tall. She is, according to Brianna, curvy although she doesn't "show it off". She does not dress very femininely and prefers to wear what she finds comfortable. Dekka is found intimadating by most of the kids because of not only her power and close relationship with Sam, but also for her strong physique.

Sam thinks of Dekka as an ally and thinks of her as possible leader of the FAYZ if he dies. We find out that in Fear she fancies Brianna who rejects her. For a while, her and Brianna don't talk due to the awkwardness between themselves. She is also one of Sam's best friends, and helps him fight against Caine and any other threats. Her full name is Dekka Talent, which we find out later in the series.
She is very strong in all aspects; The physical (Dekka is very capable of using force to protect Perdido Beach), the mental (While she isn't a genius, she has shown to be exceptionally smart and emotionally intelligent) and the emotional (she's very good at dealing with her problems).
