Black Metal Broadsword
Zane is a major character in MyStreet. He first appeared in the episode "Love Pizza". Zane may be a bit overdramatic or as Aphmau would say "Fat Little Nugget", but he's really just sensitive and shy and wants new friends, but is nervous and wants people to enjoy his company.
He was originally an antagonist, if not, the main antagonist during the early first season, but had a change of heart when Aphmau showed him friendship and kindness at Christmas. Since then Zane and Aphmau have been best friends and were shipped by some of the many MyStreet fans.
During their youth, his older brother Garroth was a jerk to Zane. During the winter in O'Khasis, both himself and Garroth were playing in the snow. Garroth tricked Zane and threw a snowball that directly hit his right eye. The snowball secretly had a rock in it, thus it caused Zane’s eye to redden and eventually go blind. He had his hair cover his right eye ever since. Garroth also once pinned Zane down, calling it jail, so he himself could get away with eating cookies before dinner.
His favorite foods are cupcakes, sweets, and (said so in "Disappearing Into the Void Livestream") flapjacks.
Zane seems to dislike Garroth greatly, as his relation to him has caused his teachers and his classmates to expect more from a Ro'Meave family member. When he first heard of the Shadow Knights, he found the group fitting for him as he wanted to join, but he was constantly rejected. Zane was seen laughing withnd constant pestering. He was also hit in the throat by a volleyball which caused his voice to instantly hit puberty.
In season 2, after Gene is gone, Zane is accepted into the Shadow Knights. Even though he's in the group, he is told to get lost and called annoying. Because of this and Zane's attempts to get Sasha and Zenix to accept them, he is kicked out. He soon decides to vandalize the cafeteria to show how "hardcore" the Shadow Knights are. When Aphmau, Sasha, and Zenix are blamed for this, he shows the principal videos of him spray painting the walls so the others would not get credit for his work. The Shadow Knights offer to let Zane back into the group, but he declines, saying he's going to create his own gang which he later names the Jury.
It is unclear what Zane did for the next two years, but it was stated by Aphmau that he put the school through literal hell. It was also confirmed that he got some Shadow Knights to join his gang and that he would use them to beat up other students.
Zane is the leader of the neighborhood watch. He also takes a part-time job working as security in the mall. In Episode 11, Zane tries to ruin Christmas because he felt left out. While he is robbing Aphmau's house, she comes downstairs and convinces him to stop with a present meant for him. In the same episode, Aphmau is seen kissing Zane on the cheek under the mistletoe (the other boys freaked out). In "Maid for the Job", Aphmau and Zane switch clothes and Garroth, Laurence, Travis, and Dante see Zane in Aphmau's purple maid outfit and Aphmau wearing his red and black clothes.
In MyStreet, Zane began as an antagonistic character, wanting to seek revenge at any given opportunity. He distanced himself from the main group and preferred to do things solo, believing that he was unwanted. Another difference between Zane from the main series and Zane from MyStreet is that Zane isn't very evil, he is nice deep down, and actually has a heart. One main difference is that Aphmau's viewers don't want to kill Zane on MyStreet, and there is a new ship for them, called Zanemau (though Jess crack-shipped it before adding any Zanemau hints in MyStreet).It is also discovered that Zane can be sweet and nice and has a soft spot for animals, as seen when he takes Aphmau (in cat form) home in Episode 6. As the series progressed, Zane became more comfortable around Aphmau and opened up to her, even showing her his interest in My Little Horsie (a parody of My Little Pony), and hanging out occasionally. He was dragged by Aphmau to produce a play for Katelyn. His role was to act as Tybalt, but also scout for a location later revealed to be the community theatre.
Befriending Aphmau showed him to have a kinder side, caring about Aphmau's well-being while she was nervous to participate in the play and encourage her that she would do fine. Although he turned over a new leaf, he still holds on to some of his sarcastic and rude side, as he showed no care about Katelyn's play, which Aphmau scolds him for. He finds it difficult to be friendly and be more social, but he strives to become a better person and expands his number of friends.
Zane is particularly in favor of Aphmau and Aaron to be in a relationship shown in the Valentine's Day arc. He showed respect to Aaron, who he finds easier to communicate with and prefers his docile and calm attitude to that of loud and boisterous Garroth and Laurance.
It has been proven for Zane to have slight feelings for Aphmau, and he discovers this in "Aphmau In Love". He continues being her loyal friend, denying his feelings until Aaron asks him. Zane respects Aphmau and Aaron's relationship, but he still is very close at heart to Aphmau.
Pixel Painters Edit
Zane makes an appearance in Pixel Painters alongside Aphmau and his older brother, Garroth. He claims to be a better artist than Garroth. The first round is to draw something related to maids, which is very ironic considering Zane dressed up as a maid to protect Aphmau in MyStreet. So, he draws himself, Aphmau jokingly asking if he purposely drew his own bottom big. The second round is "Your Crush". Zane probably thinks of this as, "Crush-ing", so he draws himself breaking a red boat with "Aarmau" written in it. Garroth agrees with the photo's meaning, (Chances are he voted on it too), and it ends with Zane being chased by Garroth for a hug!
The second time Zane appears in Pixel Painters is also with Garroth and Aphmau. As he and Aphmau continue to cover Zane's love for ponies, it is Aphmau who admits to watching the colorful ponies, as Zane still continues to hide his love. The first thing they draw is horses. Zane draws a red-eyed Pinky Cake (a parody of Pinkie Pie) and manically laughs a lot. Then, the second round is kissing, in which he draws the Zanemau kiss under the mistletoe, getting him second place right behind Aphmau. In the end, Zane teases Garroth about the Garrance moment at the play and then makes a joke stating: "I still beat you even though I got second place, so you can kiss my butt. Oh, wait! You might actually do that!" This result in him laughing, as Garroth chases him once more.
In Love~Love Paradise when Zane arrives at the pier he recognizes the building as 'the legendary Love~Love Paradise!' which he recognizes from being advertised on his 'My Little Pony' show which Garroth teases him for. As Zane continues his beach vacation he makes it very obvious the sun hated him and he hated the sun which explains his pale skin. At the beach he discovers Aphmau can't swim and starts mocking her but Aphmau tries to catch him out by asking what his favorite feature is about the beach. Don't forget in the middle of the season, he meets Kawaii~Chan who may have become friends or something more to him.
After thanking his mom for helping everyone on the original MyStreet aside from Vylad find houses, he walks off, saying he's going to find a house alone. After looking around, Zane tells Garroth that he needs to live with him because he doesn't have enough money saved to live on his own. Garroth happily accepts, despite Laurance's protests. He then, along with the others, goes to Aphmau's to eat sandwiches.
At the beginning of episode two, he is seen with Garroth and Laurence, wearing a "She's my Best Friend!" shirt with a picture of Aphmau on the front that she made for him. Zane then complains about the mess in the house, even though they were only there for a day. They then agree to go furniture shopping. He goes over to Aphmau and Aaron's house to find a place to buy furniture. They go to Ikea, where Aphmau gets easily lost. Garroth and Laurence get quickly distracted before Zane says that they should find Aphmau and asks Aaron what they came there for. They find Aphmau sleeping on a bed before Aphmau and Zane get excited over Halloween decorations.
From Episode 5 and on, Zane showed some affection with Kawaii~Chan. As you can see him blushing at Kawaii~Chan from time to time and gets a little jealous when Damien is around her.
In episode 19 Zane calls Aphmau because he wants to see what she's up to when he realizes that she sounds off. When she says she's sick Zane immediately overreacts and runs straight to her house to see what he can do for her. He runs out of her house to get soup at the supermarket and returns at the end of the episode with the soup but catches Aphmau's cold and is last seen in that episode at his house with Gene, Garroth, and Laurance.
He is first seen in this season in Episode 1 with Aphmau, asking her to take his sweatshirt and states that he is happy for Garroth to be gone since he is getting tired of his exercises. Just after, the doorbell rings and he pretends to be Aaron for the Phoenix brothers, and he gets informed of the dangers of the place.
In episode 2, he was talking with Aphmau trying to calm her down, she was worried about Aaron and the others at the "mansion", Zane imagined what he would do if Garroth was in danger (explosion of the boiler), he imagines that he would be laughing out loud and actually does so in front of Aphmau, but he tells her that he is actually concerned a little bit about his older brother, both decide to go for the "mansion". Since none of them know where the mansion is, Zane has the idea to call his mother and ask for it. Later they walk to his parents house, his father answers the door and confuses Aphmau for Zane stating that he looks pretty, Zane tells him his plan, Garte imagines that Zane will destroy the "mansion" and tells him that Garroth got this, although Zane asks for his mom, Zianna comes out and does the same mistake at confusing Zane with Aphmau and states that he looked really cute today, he then asked for the keys to the car and they both get on track for the property.
In episode 3 Aphmau and Zane finally arrived at the "mansion", Zane jumps in before Lucinda and Aaron came out to welcome them and runs straight for the bathroom, he entered what he thought to be the bathroom, but discovers fairly quickly that it's a normal room, at that moment the door closes behind him, he finds Kim acting weird as she was love talking to Zane, Kim corners him and expresses her feeling of love for Zane. Kim faints after asking him to kiss her and Zane runs again for the bathroom.
Later, Zane’s is captured by an unknown assailant but then appears later but with a different eye color. His personality changes more and becomes more open ts people. After multiple episodes of his mysterious attitude, it is revealed that he was captured by Ein and manipulated to be his follower. Zane started completely aware of everything around him, but cannot break through to warn his friends. He witnesses the abuse and torment of both himself and his friends, especially Aphmau. Garroth manages to free Zane of his control, but not before Zane confesses his sadness of living under Garroth’s shadow and him doing nothing to help. This act allows their bond as brothers to grow stronger as Garroth now understands why Zane is the way he is.
After Ein is defeated, Zane and to others stay at the lodge for another week, since Aaron started bedridden from his fight. They later go back to the street as changed people.
Zane has black hair with bangs that cover one eye. He is said to wear a man bun according to Aphmau in Season 1 though in a live stream Jess has stated that Zane has an undercut during season six to make combat and running easier when a fan had asked why parts of his hair appeared lighter. He has pale skin with freckles (though they are almost always covered by his face mask) and light blue eyes, one of them being blind (that eye being covered by bangs).
In the MyStreet, Zane wears a gray hoodie with darker gray and black stripes, light gray pants and black shoes. When he had a side job delivering packages, he wore a red short-sleeved shirt rimmed with black pants and dark gray and white shoes.
He mainly wears clothing that is black, gray, white and during his younger years, light blue with his signature hoodie. He rarely adds a bright color into his clothing, however, he is seen with faded purple occasionally.
Zane's outfit has only changed slightly over a long time of his time in MyStreet, but the major change is of course when he has received his swimwear when arrives in Love~Love Paradise. His swimwear is similar to his casual MyStreet wear however he is wearing grey swim trunks and the usual hoodie. Zane is given pink rainbow-like trunks for the 'incident' which occurred during "Zane's Pants", he says he is embarrassed to wear them but admits he likes them.
At the beginning of MyStreet Season 3, Zane's outfit changed again. He was given a black and white scarf and a gray and black sweater with a cross-like design. He still wears his usual mask, light gray pants, and black shoes.
On MyStreet Season 4 after he was captured by Ein, Zane has green eyes. Knowing the control to his abusive torments against Garroth.
As a werewolf, he has dark blue ears with a light blue color in the interior. His tail is dark at the top but lighter at the tip.
As Zanna, she has longs bangs and black hair that reaches to her waist. She wears a black and white striped off-shoulder one-piece, a light gray skirt, and knee-high boots.
As a Cat Edit
He is gray with dark black hair draped over his right side. He also has a striped black and white mask.
In episode 14 of When Angels Fall, he has a cut in his torso and shoulder.As of episode 15 of When Angels Fall, he is a purple relic.
In the MyStreet series, he is still bossy and mean, however, he can sometimes be sweet and has become good friends with Aphmau. He comes off as rude, however, he has a soft spot for ponies. In MyStreet, he comes off tamer as opposed to his personality in Diaries. He is also very protective and supportive of Aphmau, seeing her as his only friend. Regardless, he's a soft, sensitive marshmallow. Recently, he has gained a liking towards Kawaii~Chan, even sneaking her into Starlight Wonderland. She even trusts him enough to tell him her backstory.
His soft side even affects Garroth, after the events at the lodge. Originally, Zane would be embarrassed by how Garroth calls him his "baby brother" and treats him like a baby, but after Zane was kidnapped and brainwashed at the hands of Ein and was freed from his control, he and Garroth had a brotherly reunion where Zane ask Garroth to forgive him for all of the evil he has done and during Aphmau's Year, he and Garroth soon became friendly with each other.
Zane gets easily flustered when it comes to romance. Due to claiming to be antisocial, he gets extremely embarrassed when he gets into romance like when he kissed Kawaii~Chan at the haunted house. He starts to yell and panic and begs for Aphmau and Aaron's help for romance guidance. But in When Angels Fall, Zane is more grown-up and mature.
