*Except that her hood is usually over her head most of the time. When it is, people usually see just her mouth and nose.

Loved one(s) lost: Her boyfriend whom she was to marry; a man named Yosei
Personality: Calm and curious, cunning but not treacherous, she is a careful planner and good strategist. Although generally quiet, she is good at taking charge of a situation, and is always open to the ideas and suggestions of her allies. She can also be cold and distant sometimes though, which makes her less approachable than she would like to be. Although she hates Sin and craves vengeance against him, she tries to refrain from talking about it. Better to have such hatred locked away where no one can see it, lest someone mistake her for a witch (which she has been called on occasion).
Short Bio: During most of her life she had been misunderstood. Kids picked on her when she was young, people thought she was a bit creepy if not heartless due to the lack of emotion she would show, even during desperate times. Her family always tried to get her out of the house more and pull her away from her books, not realizing that she simply preferred being alone in her room. Most of her years were rather gloomy, but then a handsome young man came along and changed all of that. Yosei was a smart young man who shared common interests with her and understood her. The two had spent more and more time together, and Zaphy loved every bit of it. He was nice, understanding, smart, had a good sense of right and wrong, logical, funny but not too immature, and was serious when the need for it came. He was the only person Zaphikel had developed any true emotional attachment to.
On one night, under a star-filled night sky, he presented a beautiful ring and proposed to her. Overjoyed, Zaphikel graciously accepted and hugged him. For the first time in her life, she had shed tears of joy. The two were just beginning to plan a wedding, until a certain giant sea-dwelling monstrosity had come along and changed everything. Sin gave birth to hundreds of hideous little beasties, and those abominations flew from their master and attacked the town. Yosei was slain saving Zaphikel's life. He had died a slow and gruesome death to protect her. Despite the agony of being gored and shredded, he managed to smile through it all. Knowing that his lover was unharmed was enough to satisfy him. Of course she tried to save him, but at the time her magics were not honed enough to be able to stop the sinspawn from killing and eating him alive. It was the worst day of her life.
Since that day, Zaphikel had practiced honing her magics more than ever. She decided to become a guardian for the next summoner and defeat Sin. Yosei was the only person who had truly understood Zaphy, and she was not about to let that infernal whale beast go unpunished for talking him away from her.
