Zain is like any other seafarer: Tan, strong, beautiful brown hair and a gorgeous body. He usually wears his captains hat and his dark red vest. He wears a light metal gauntlet on his left and right hands to help support the weight of his massive sword: Warrior's Strife. He wears a simple belt with a strange insignia on the buckle and fancy black leather pants.
Zain has very high sense of honor. Despite being a mercenary, he upholds his honor always. He refuses to fight dirty and honors all of his opponents. However, he has a weak side for attractive women, which he will proceed to wow with his amazing good looks and stellar smile. Not to say he won't fight women. He will use Warrior's Strife if he has to. He just perfers to use his other massive sword first. Recently, he has viewed things with a darker edge. While he still tries to uphold his honor, he finds it harder to due with so much corruption in the world.
While he may talk very highly at times during battles, he usually apologizes for his misbehavior. He feels that battles are a sacred thing, something that should not be tarnished with.
When not fighting or womanizing, he has a very laid back attitude. He will joke and mess around with whoever he is with and will gladly accept a free drink. He is a cheerful man who hides his sorrow with a smile.
Zain grew up on Beruna in East Blue. There his mother taught him the laborers of honor, while his mentor, Norman, taught him everything he knew about swordsmanship. It was here Zain saw the beauty of women first hand. Norman taught me the importance of treating women right and , and the beauty of the female body. It made him try and infatuate every woman he met on his island, but alas, it didn't work. Zain never gave up though.
Zain's mother passed away when he was 20. Norman died several years earlier. He mourned for almost a year. Zain did not know what to do. He was lost and broken. Norman and his mother were all he had. One day, as he was going through his Mother's old belongings, he found a package with a note. The package contained the clothing he wore to this day. The note, he never told anyone what it said.
The very next day he found the note, he departed from Beruna smiling. Locals heard him say he was going to explore the Island and enjoy life. He went across the Island Kokoyashi was on doing merc work. Clearing out bandits, hunting dangerous animals for many months. He enjoyed every bit of it. He fought bravely like Norman and upheld his honor like his Mother told him to. He even scored a couple dates from the girls at Arlong Park.
However, one day, he looked out to sea and realized he wanted more to life than just his home Island. Zain went to his mother grave and stared at it for hours on end. With a deep breath, Zain stood up and walked away. He realized he had nothing left on the Island and departed in a very small dingy. Relaxing, he sailed peacefully in a random direction, waiting to see where the world would take him.
