General information: Born the fifth son of Baal and Zahra Dresden, he was the first in over a hundred years to be diagnosed with the Hysteria Gene–a genetic disorder common in large Reaper families that is catastrophic in nature, granting it’s barer extraordinarily destructive power in the form of uncontrollable rage. Around the time of the last great Demon War, some fifty odd years ago, Zain returned home to his pregnant wife Maia and the gene was activated, sending him into a frenzy that ended in the termination of the woman’s life and her pregnancy. Though, he is completely unaware that he committed the heinous deed, he still blames himself for not being able to protect them, despite his obvious mental and emotional instability. He spends the rest of his life muted, diminished by mind altering drugs, constantly toeing the line of his burning need to avenge her, and wishing he could join her in death.

Personality type: INFJ – The Protector

Quietly forceful, original, and sensitive. Tend to stick to things until they are done. Extremely intuitive about people, and concerned for their feelings. Well-developed value systems which they strictly adhere to. Well-respected for their perseverance in doing the right thing. Likely to be individualistic, rather than leading or following.

Hero Archetype: The LOST SOUL: a sensitive being, he understands. Tortured, secretive, brooding, and unforgiving. That’s this man. But he’s also vulnerable. He might be a wanderer or an outcast. In work he’s creative, but probably also a loner. The PROFESSOR: coolly analytical, he knows every answer. He’s logical, introverted, and inflexible, but genuine about his feelings. At work, he likes cold, hard facts, thank you very much, but he’s also honest and faithful, and won’t let you down.

Best strength: Coolly analytical, good at problem solving.

Worst flaw: Self-depreciating.

Ego flaw: Wants to do it ‘all’ himself. Refuses to ask for or allow assistance.

Ambitions:

Motive: Survival. Zain is biding his time but for what no one knows.

Internal conflict: He struggles with some innate knowledge that he did something very bad but can’t bring himself to face his past. He misses Maia terribly and often still searches for her in his dreams, awakening to only nightmares and an empty bed. He lives each day in his own personal hell, his body, a jail cell he has no hopes of ever escaping.

External conflict: He still physically fights against the Hysteria Gene, even with the help of the medication there is some foreign part of him that craves that power. He wants to taste that darkness inside of him, to claim it and bend it to his will, but he knows that the Gene will only drive him to destroy everything he loves, including himself.

Biggest fear: Losing anyone else to the Hysteria.
