There is a small cross shaped scar on his lower cheek. He wears the black SOLDIER uniform that once distinguished him as a 1st Class SOLDIER.
Personality: Zack is generally a very cheerful guy with tendencies to be rather playful (earning him the nickname Puppy” from Angeal). He is also quite flirtatious around the ladies. Despite this he has his serious moments in which he is shown to be caring and determined.
Zack was born in a rural town called Gongaga. He was raised there by his parents and like many children dreamed of joining SOLDIER to become a hero like the idle – Sephiroth. Unlike many children, Zack was very strong of will and once he had set his sights on becoming a SOLDIER 1st class he worked hard until he got there. He left Gongaga at the age of thirteen and joined ShinRa's military upon arrival in Midgar. It took him just three years to reach SOLDIER 2nd class where he found himself under Angeal's experienced guidance.
Angeal taught Zack a lot but most importantly to protect his honour. Zack carried out many missions for ShinRa and was instrumental in ending the war with Wutai whilst proving himself worthy of the title of SOLDIER 1st class. In Wutai things started to wrong. Whilst getting director Lazard to safety Angeal went missing. Sephiroth speculated that he left with Genesis as they were old friends but Zack refused to believe this was true. Later, while on a mission with Tseng, Zack found himself in Banora and questioned Angeal's mother about him. When he later found her dead with Angeal standing over her he was confused. The man who taught him and inspired him to protect his honour appeared to have killed his own mother and so contradicted his own motto. Zack struck out at him but the appearance of Genesis allowed the pair to escape before the town of Banora was bombed.
Subsequent to the mission in Banora Zack was awarded the title of SOLDIER first class, something he had dreamed of since childhood. It was not a satisfying feeling for Zack, despite how much he had yearned for it because he did not feel like he earned the title. Almost immediately after his promotion, Midgar came under attack from Genesis clones and Zack found himself confronting Angeal once again. Angeal attacked Zack who refused to defend himself and as a result of a magic attack the floor fell away beneath him. When he awoke he found himself in the flower filled church in the slums and in the company of Aerith. He was under the impression that she had saved his life and displayed gratitude on the matter.
In a flirtatious manner, he offered Aerith a date as a way to thank her for saving him. He was amazed by the flowers in the church and it was his idea that led to her selling them. He bought her a pink ribbon on their date. As the troubles with Genesis increased Zack found that he was frequently away on missions and had little time to spend with Aerith. Although he did find the time to build her a cart with which to sell her flowers to the people of Midgar, he rarely had a moment to spare with her otherwise. Whilst on missions Zack befriended a young ShinRa officer named Cloud. Things seemed to be getting dire when he was forced to kill Angeal, once more questioning his honour as he transformed into a monster. The battle earned Zack the scar on his cheek and the Buster Sword but at the cost of a friend and mentor.
The incident in Nibelhiem with Sephiroth was the true turning point for Zack. As Sephiroth discovered the truth behind the Jenova project Zack and Cloud stood up against him but were both seriously injured. Whilst unconscious they were taken by Professor Hojo and used in the Sephiroth clone experiment. Zack came through with his memory intact partially due to a vision of Angeal and mostly because his body had already undergone the similar process of becoming SOLDIER. Cloud, however, was left catatonic after the 4 year long ordeal. Zack escaped, taking the unconscious Cloud with him, the pair becoming targets of ShinRa as they struggled their way to Banora.
It was there that Zack eventually found himself facing Genesis in battle and went on to defeat him beneath Banora. Following this an Angeal copy that had been watching over Aerith appeared and finally degraded, dropping a letter from the woman it had watched over. Upon reading it, Zack discovered just how long he'd been in the basement of the ShinRa mansion and that Aerith thought he'd merely forgotten about her. The 89th letter caused Zack to devote himself to returning to Midgar to see her again.
He never did make it. ShinRa sent out an army of troops to meet him and although he fought hard he was eventually overwhelmed by their numbers and firepower. He was shot down on the cliff that over looked Midgar by the company he had devoted himself to working for in the past, despite efforts on the part of Tseng and Cissnei. In his final moments he managed to tell Cloud that he was to be his living legacy before finally passing into the lifestream.
In the years that followed Zack met with Aerith in the lifestream after she was killed by Sephiroth and with her help appeared to Cloud to encourage him in times of doubt.
Waking up in the middle of no-where was a shock for him but although unsure why he knew he had been taken from the lifestream and given life once more in the strange merged worlds. He now aims to find Aerith with the assumption she too has been given a second life and his friends. Cloud and Angeal especially. He is concerned though, that Sephiroth, Genesis and the like have also returned from the lifestream and that their plans that had previously been halted might be put back into action.
