Zeke is a is a pale-skinned teenager with bismark colour hair and green eyes. He is seen wearing the full Wellston uniform without the vest with loose tie during school hours. His speech and thought bubbles are the periwinkle gray colour.
When using his abilities, his eyes glow an emerald green hue.
Zeke, like most Wellston Students, enjoys asserting his authority over weaker students. Due to his status as one of the strongest males in the dorms, he arrogantly demands that he be called King and be bowed to. Zeke is also the type of person who would take every opportunity to elevate himself and arrogantly calls himself the "Godslayer" after beating up a crippled Seraphina.
However, like most students at Wellston, Zeke "kisses up" to those stronger than him, chiefly Arlo and Seraphina before her ability-loss. Similarly, when overpowered by an opponent he thought was weaker, he quickly changes his tone. Possibly Zeke's single positive trait is that he knows when he is beaten and is able to admit it.
The students ranked higher than Zeke are not fond of him or his lackeys. His tendency to give himself titles annoys them to no end. Their opinions of him hit an all-time low following his Godslayer stunt, to the point where only Remi is willing to give him the benefit of the doubt before others talk her out of it.
To make good on his promise to Keene, Zeke "greeted" John by sending Mardin to beat him up, with little success. However, John was distracted long enough for Zeke to "welcome" him. After introducing himself as the strongest resident of the dorms, Zeke demanded John to address him as "King" and to bow in his presence, and to his surprise, John complied. Not satisfied with John's tone, Zeke caught up with John and began to bully him mercilessly. As he endured blow after blow, John began to rant about how he and Zeke were no different, referring to how he used to beat up the helpless and how they are both "another pieces of garbage in this world." Angered and startled by the outburst, Zeke knocked John out and grumbled that his entire week was ruined. The next day, two bullies on behalf of Zeke would obstruct John from getting to class.
Upon hearing that Wellston's strongest student was reduced to a Cripple, Zeke jumped at the opportunity to topple the former Ace and get revenge on John for ruining his week. In the halls of Wellston, for all to see, Zeke had beaten both John and Seraphina, and arrogantly declared himself the "Godslayer." However, his victory was short-lived, once Arlo furiously punched him, angrily declaring that Zeke was wasting his time on powerless cripples. Subserviently, Zeke bowed to Arlo and left the scene.
After school, Zeke tossed a bag marked "Tuesday" and began to walk off, not knowing that an attacker was behind him. The attacker, named "ʎɐpsǝn┴" attempted to punch Zeke, but the self-proclaimed Godslayer easily avoided the attack. Hoping to vent out his frustration from Arlo's intervention, Zeke happily challenged ʎɐpsǝn┴ to a battle, but to his horror, he found himself on the receiving end of the beating. Once he was thoroughly beaten, Zeke conceded the battle, but ʎɐpsǝn┴ would continue to beat up Zeke until he went unconscious.
Zeke's unconscious body was found sometime later and rumors of his defeat soon spread. People wondered who could have done this to him and suspected Arlo, as he was the only one possessing the necessary strength and motive to do something like this to him.
Zeke learned about Isen's article stating that the true identity of the original Joker was actually John. However, he dismissed it, considering the notion to be ridiculous. While walking through the school hallway, though, he overheard gossip about the article. Angered that other students actually believed the rumor, Zeke decided to confront and beat up the cripple to prove them wrong. Zeke then challenged John in front of a crowd of Wellston students with the intention of publically proving that John was not the all-powerful Joker. The crowd eagerly anticipates for John to once more suffer a painful humiliation, and Zeke taunts him for being so uncharacteristically quiet. However, John finally speaks up, by referring to the Godslayer's defeat during the "lunch-bag incident" and provoked Zeke into activating his Phase Shift. John then activated his Aura Manipulation and attacked Mardin, shocking Zeke and the crowd of students witnessing the beatdown. With the Wellston students running away, Zeke can only watch and regret not believing that the student he provoked turned out to be Joker after all.
Powers & Abilities
Phase Shift: Zeke's ability, Phase Shift, allows him to shift his stats between two distinct "forms." In his "Offensive Form," Zeke sacrifices defense and recovery for higher attack and speed. The ability also grants him a "Defensive Form," which alters his skin tone into his signature blue color and grants him increased defense and recovery, not unlike Stone Skin. When entering his defensive form, Zeke sacrifices Power and Speed for Defense and Recovery. According to a recent Q&A with Uru-chan, Phase Shift has multiple forms that have yet to be shown in the webtoon.
- Mardin: Mardin is Zeke's loyal follower, always following him around and following his orders. He even tries to assist him without receiving any orders.
- John: After John transferred into the school dorms, Zeke attempted to assert dominance over him and demanded he refer to him as "king". However, when John jokingly did so to get away, he proceeded to beat him up. This caused John to snap at Zeke, who then knocked him unconscious, now considering him crazy.
- Seraphina: According to Seraphina, Zeke constantly sucked up to her when she still had her ability. However, after her ability-loss, Zeke took advantage of her powerless state and turned on her, arrogantly titling himself Godslayer afterwards.
- (To John) "Welcome to the boys dorm, Johnny boy!"
- (After beating up Seraphina) "The mighty Seraphina has fallen. You may now call me the Godslayer."
Notes & Triva
- According to fans, Zeke bears a strong resemblance to James from the Pokemon franchise.
