Bio Zack is a Soldier 2nd class operative and he's training at the hands of one of Soldier's proudest members, Angeal. Zack is an energetic young man brimming with excitement and vigor. Although he dreams of one day becoming a hero like his idol, Sephiroth, Zack must first overcome his limitations. Zack's primary weakness is not physical, but mental. Simply put, he has difficulty maintaining focus-As deadly a character flaw as one could have on the battlefield. As time goes by and Zack matures and his ability to focus improves, he is promoted to Soldier 1st class and given the most important assignment. He continues to respect Sephiroth. But it is Angeal he begins to emulate. Zack remembers all of Angeal's teachings and seeks to pass them down to those who follow in his Soldier footsteps. Most importantly, Zack keeps his hope of becoming a hero alive and follows his dream in the most honorable way a Soldier operative can.
