Zari's life was identical to that of Zari Tomaz until the Legends created Heyworld in her youth in 2019; by doing this, the Anti-Meta-human Act of 2021 never passed, A.R.G.U.S. did not rise to power, and religious freedom was not banned. In 2019, Zari became famous all over social media for taming the dragon Wickstable at Heyworld and was nicknamed "Dragon Girl". At some point in or before January 2020, "Dragon Girl" was still trending at #1 worldwide on social media. In January 2020, Behrad Tarazi was born, giving Zari a younger brother.
Using her newfound social media status, Zari was able to accumulate a net worth of $500 million by the time she was 15 years old.

When Behrad and Nate Heywood visited her family in 2044 for her father's birthday, Zari began to grow suspicious when she noticed Behrad had the Air Totem and that he and Nate, who mistook her for his girlfriend Zari Tomaz, hadn't aged a day since 2019. Before she could reveal the truth to her parents, Behrad transported Zari aboard the Waverider.
Zari blamed Astra Logue for the mishaps that were occurring aboard the Waverider and sought proof that Astra should not be there. During her investigation, Zari hacked into the ship's cameras and watched the footage with Nate and Charlie. While watching each captured incident, the three realized that they had no memory of their actions. Soon they realized that Gary's dog was nearby barking whenever one of the three did something unexplainable. Later, Zari offered friendship to Astra, by offering her a tour of the Waverider, but Astra did not accept it.
Zari became a founding member of the sorority Delta Chi Sigma in order to help the Legends "win" the Chalice of Dionysus. Drinking from the chalice would give the Legends the power of immortality for 24 hours which would allow them to work the Loom of Fate. Zari was responsible for recruiting Lisa Lindholme to the sorority. She then decided to make a dish of nachos using Behrad's special recipe to celebrate the founding of the sorority. After the Legends' plan was successful and they obtained the chalice, Zari did not drink from the artifact, stating that drinking was ”super haram”, or forbidden by Islamic law, thus not gaining the power of immortality for 24 hours like the rest of the Legends.
Remaining mortal made Zari the most at risk when Atropos sent Zombies to attack the Legends during a Zombie Apocalypse. When she and John Constantine became surrounded, he cast a spell that temporarily stopped her heart, so that they could get a vehicle to help the other Legends get to London. Upon reaching London, Zari became extremely frustrated as the time courier that the Legends sought was uncharged and momentarily useless and she stormed off, causing Constantine to chase after her. After Zari and Constantine returned, the Legends found themselves fighting off a hoard of zombies, just as their power of immortality waned.
When the Fates took over the world and made free will a punishable offense, Charlie granted Zari her wish by giving her a life with her brother; the drawback was that it was within the realm of a television show. After Behrad removed the Air Totem to use the bathroom, the spirit of Zari Tomaz was able to escape the World between worlds within the totem and took over the body of Zari.
Later, in a bid to bribe Behrad to stay on his television show, Charlie ripped Zari's life thread in half. This caused Tomaz to have her own physical body separate from Zari. Zari quickly hugged her resurrected brother, happy to see him; however, as Nate held Tomaz, Behrad wondered if he now had two sisters.
Having escaped their various television shows, the Legends separated into two groups, one to find the Waverider, and the other to destroy the Loom of Fate. Zari was on the latter team with Behrad, John, Astra, and Sara Lance. Zari and Behrad found the Fates in a ceremony where they granted the citizens their various desires. As Atropos attacked Sara, Zari and Behrad grabbed hands and they both used the power of the Air Totem, which increased its strength. They used that extra strength to push the deity into the Loom. The group ran as the loom exploded and quickly boarded the Waverider and jumped to whenever and wherever they could, which was four months into the future.
Zari was surprised as Mick Rory, Lita, Gary Green, and Mona Wu all boarded the Waverider with anger as they had waited for the ship for four months. When they confronted her, she told them to see the other Zari and not her.
Eventually, both versions of Zari were assigned to disable Gideon as the A.I. had been turned into the new loom by Lachesis. While Tomaz tried to use her hacking skills to deactivate Gideon, Tarazi chose to grab the cord and unplug it, disconnecting the world from its computerized master.
With the Fates defeated, Behrad and Zari were hanging out on the bridge of the Waverider while Behrad was working on fixing Gideon. When Tomaz entered the bridge, Zari teased her because she could tell that she had been sleeping with Nate while Behrad teased Zari for being with Constantine. Suddenly, Behrad began to bleed heavily as Tomaz's presence was causing a temporal disturbance with two timelines, one where Behrad is dead and one where he isn't, fighting for control of his life. Tomaz had a meeting with the Legends because she decided to return to the totem in order to save Behrad's life and Zari was speechless and overcome with emotion as Tomaz said farewell.
Relationship with Constantine
Constantine left The Smell concert in 1977 in London to spend the night with Zari. The next morning, Zari thanked Constantine for the casual hook-up. Ava Sharpe and Mick arrived to the hotel room to inform them that Sara Lance was missing; though Mick was indifferent, Ava was surprised by the relationship.
After collecting the other Legends, Zari accompanied Constantine to his house with Astra where Constantine failed in trying to use a spell to find Sara. Zari talked with Astra who knew people in Hell who had been abducted by aliens and Astra told her about Aleister Crowley and his spell book. Constantine, Astra, and Zari found the spell book in Gary Green's room where they also discovered a cocoon and eyeglasses. They returned to the Waverider to report that Gary was the alien that took Sara.
In an effort to find Sara, Esperanza Cruz was used as a conduit to communicate to Sara across time and space. However, the spell began to slowly kill Constantine, so Zari grabbed the Air Totem from Behrad and used it to break the link which disrupted Ava's conversation with Sara. Returning to Constantine's house to heal him, Zari teased him about him regaining his strength so he could spend some time with her. After Zari left the room, Astra told Constantine that she didn't believe that his and Zari's relationship was "just a fling".

As a result of Zari becoming famous at a very young age, as well as becoming a self-made millionaire by the time she was 19 years old; initially, Zari was extremely arrogant, egotistical, selfish, rude, and disrespectful. Due to these traits of hers at the time, she had a strained relationship with her younger brother, Behrad Tarazi. Zari didn't get along with her brother at all because she was jealous of him, as Zari believed their parents, Mr. Tarazi and Nasreen Tarazi favored Behrad over her.
However, after joining the Legends, Zari started to abandon these negative traits of hers through the team's missions. She also started to repair her relationship with Behrad and began a friendship with Ava Sharpe.
Given Zari's former status as a socialite, she appears to be rather health-conscious, having gone on a juice cleanse after consuming a single donut and criticizing the thread count of Nate's blankets after waking up in his bed.
Powers and abilities
- "I'm just holding on to this for him. I don't have any super powers, unless you count flawless eyebrows."
- —Zari Tarazi[src]
- Powers via Air Totem: Despite Zari never wielding the Air Totem in the current timeline, it still responded to her when she touched it due to an alternate version of her wielding it. After Behrad Tarazi's death, Zari began wielding the Air Totem. After Behrad was resurrected, she returned the totem to him. However, Zari Tomaz somehow created a copy of the totem, giving both Behrad and Zari the ability to wield the Air Totem.
- "You hack?"
"Not so much me, but another version of me that used to exist."
- —Astra Logue and Zari Tarazi[src]
- Genius-level intellect/Computer specialist/Master computer hacker: Zari regained some memories of a version of herself from the previous timeline, who was a highly intelligent, experienced computer specialist and hacker. With these memories, she was able to easily hack into Gideon's mainframe on more than one occasion, bypassing past the encrypted security protocols the A.I. uses to manage the locks. Zari is very observant as well, evident with her managing to quickly deduce that Marie Antoinette's enchantment wasn't her, but rather her perfume.
- Bilingual: Zari is capable of fluently speaking English and Farsi.
- Expert of deception/Manipulator: Zari has an exceptional understanding of how to blend in with society, particularly with the social elite, as seen when she was able to get herself and the Legends into Marie Antoinette's party. Zari is also fairly competent in manipulating individuals, coming up with a partially-successful plan to draw Marie Antoinette away from her own party. Zari's skills even enabled her to pose as Cleopatra to a room full of "encores".
- Eidetic memory: Zari possesses perfect memory recall, as she was able to instantly remember that she hadn't eaten a donut in exactly 1,743 days.
- Totem wristband: After Behrad’s death, Zari began wearing a special bracelet that allows her to bear the Air Totem. After Behrad was resurrected, she returned the totem wristband to him. However, Zari Tomaz somehow created a copy of the Air Totem, giving Zari her own totem wristband.
- Dragon Ash: Zari carries around a box that contains packages of her brand of herbal nootropic supplements known as Dragon Ash. Supposedly, these supplements enhance things such as a user's brain power and their sleep cycle.
- Dragonesque: Zari had a brand of perfume known as Dragonesque, presumably since she was known as "Dragon Girl". The perfume turned out to block the user's olfactory sensors, which rendered them immune to the effect of Marie Antoinette's magical perfume.
