    Relationships

    • Zac was born from a chemical spill at the level of the Zaunita sinkhole, gaining basic sensitivity to respond to external stimuli. He was kidnapped in a laboratory by a group of alchemists financed by the chemist Baron Saito Takeda, to be molded into a super soldier under his command. Two of the alchemists became emotionally attached to Zac and, when they discovered who his benefactor was, they wandered off with him into the depths of Zaun, lovingly raising him as their own son while fleeing from Baron Takeda's thugs.
      • Zac responds to people's emotions and acts accordingly, his mood changing with the prevailing sentiment at any given moment, best exemplified when he went insane after his parents were killed by Takeda's men. After burying them, he decided to leave and help the people of Zaun, fighting chemical thugs and fixing the city's infrastructure when the opportunity presented itself.
