Zag the Zebra


[Z - A - G]
Real Name: ???
Nicknames: This zebra roams across both the outer and virtual realities under the name of 'The Blue Glitch' or 'The Dubstep Virus.' Despite the titles given by the regular citizens of Mobius, this bundle of codes likes to refer to himself as 'Zag' which he got the idea off his rather 'zig zagging' like way of moving to other electronic devices.
Species: Zebra
Height: 105cm
Eyes: Black and blue
Age: Immortal (Appearance-wise - 20 years old) (Technical age - 5.5 years)
Gender: Male
Alighnment: Chaotic Evil
Relationships 
        Bullet; Green 
Love status: Not in a relationship. He's artificial lol.
      Bullet; Green Family: 
                - Zag's history is rather vague. The only links to his past seem to be the tear on his right arm and the Tarsier siblings.
Occupation
        The Blue Glitch/Dubstep Virus - Zag is one of the real/virtual world's nuisance. His main objective is purely just to entertain himself. The zebra's agenda usually consists of him exploring areas to find anything new (objects, information, people, gossip, news, locations, etc.). However, if it seems there's nothing else to find, he will move on to his second favourite hobby; pestering people. Zag approaches this in a ridiculous number of ways, and these are mainly done via legitimate people's accounts, including; sending random snapchats, writing up false posts or status updates, mixing up people's photos, messing up relationship status, etc. 
    An important note; when Zag dives into the real world, his roaming time is limited to approximately 8 hours. If time is almost up, he can extract energy from nearby electronic devices. In doing so, it will cause the device to malfunction, violently playing back a dubstep song with a bold imprint of Zag's brand on the centre of the screen. However, if Zag doesn't 'charge' within the time limit, he will dissipitate and transport back into the interwebs - through the computer back at his old home. 
Zag's theme/Redesign inspiration: 
'Stan SB - Give Them Hell'

Personality: 
    Mischievous and troublesome; it's safe to say that Zag is the interwebs loose virus, let alone a a total douche. Being purely programmed, Zag posesses no emotions or any capabilities to feel any human qualities at all. The concept of him feeling anything is very unlikely; basically impossible. Regardless, Zag has been programmed as an artificial intelligence - enabling him to understand things, communicate and manupilate electronic elements; much like a computer. This aspect of him however allows him acess to the wikipedia - providing him a broad range of knowledge and history, developing him as a fairly knowledgeable and informed character. His being also lets him into social mediums (for instance; Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Youtube, etc.) therefore, much to everyone's dismay, he's gained insight on social interactions, allowing him to 'mimmick' emotions and attitudes.
            An example of this might be if someone punches him, he will 'pretend' that you hurt him and might even cry - when really he's just doing this for his own entertainment. 

Likes: Causing havoc, making little kids cry, emojis, snooping through people's stuff - especially private accounts, leaving his 'brand' on other people's electronic devices, Vines, Memes, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Video Games, Social Media
Dislikes: Old people, cringiness, Pewdiepie, classical music, 'Q.P', being 'low battery', people intruding into or asking about his life
EXTRA DETAILS:
    - Very few things have been changed in Zag's character. Firstly, he was actually a regular Mobian who was a thief (however, 'ol Classy found that boring and overused. Plus, the idea of him being a thief doesn't seem to fit his attire at all - welp, for me at least), and the second part of him that had changed were his eyes (they were blue but reflecting back on my own cast of characters, there's already a fair few that have blue eyes, so I changed Zag's a little differently).
    - Under the arm band on Zag's right is actually a piece of him torn off. For what reason could their be such a part of him missing? What had originally been there was a symbol that seemed to have been consisted of the capital letters 'Q' and 'P.'
    - Somehow connected with the Tarsier siblings.
    - Zag's scheme was originally white with orange/black stripes. However, not too long after his escape from his creator that Zag had eventually found out about the famous Sonic the Hedgehog. Through admiration of the cool blue, Zag had fiddled with his own coding and changed his appearance to blue instead.


Materials:    Paint Tool SAI
                    Wacom Bamboo Tablet 
                    Having the repeat button on whilst listening to a dubstep playlist for hours.

Character belongs to and art by me :iconclasmaticii3:

Why does he hate old people? Won't he be old one day? Even if you're artificial, it doesn't stop years from going by.

Seeing a character of yours actually be somewhat ''evil'' is refreshing ! I really love his attitude and how he changed himself to be his own behind in a way. A mischievous entity that only seek entertainment. Honestly, it's nice that even if he can't feel emotions, he can mimmick them. It give him a ''human'' feel to the character even if it's faked. That fact about him changing his color to blue after finding out about the famous character of the franchise is also a very nice add-on. Overall, i think he's a mysterious and complet character to fit as a jerk that only want to amuse themselves. The idea of him having a limit and somewhat a vulnerability make him fairly balanced in my personal opinion

Great character overall !

Bwahahaha uhh yeahh.... I wasn't exactly so sure what to label Zag. Is classifying him as "evil"appropriate or would it be more suitable to say he's more in the neutral zone?? XD
Anywho, you have no idea how much I truly appreciate your feedback on my characters!! Like, of course, it's great to hear some excellent feedback and some good points - but what makes you stand out is that you're not afraid to point out some bad points either! Which I very much prefer! Are you a critic on DeviantArt? You would do wonderfully :laughing:

''Chaotic neutral'' 'could be more fitting if he doesn't do only bad thing. Even if the reason for anything good are selfish to the extend of entertainment. It is still a nice doing //Shrug/

I'm honestly glad you like my feedback-- I don't see them as critic, more like me giving my opinions. I always wished for someone to do something similar with my character, to give their honest opinions and point out anything that seem to clash or point some flaws that work well. Ya know ? Kinda letting me know what was good and what seem to work less or ask for more clarifying if needed(Like how i was slightly confused for Surge before reading on and connecting dots that lead to a well developed character in the end). Since i personally have difficulty with story and personality. I tend to feel like it clash--

Oh ! There's people who do wonders at being critic, i believe i have no place among them, ahah~

Wow. He's very sly, and I can see why he's considered a nuisance. He's almost like an annoying brother that you just can't seem to catch and tame.

But yeah, when you put through that context, he does indeed behave like an annoying brother. :XD:

Oh really? I'm glad to have changed that for you <333 Although, trust me, because there's very little of Zebra Mobian characters, his design process did involve A LOT of hair tugging - I'll tell you that :laughing:
Thanks a ton for your awesome comment :heart: ^^
