Zari Tarazi (born c. 2009/2010), is a time traveler, member of the Legends, and one of the wielders of the Air Totem which is one of the Six Lost Totems of Zambesi. Zari is the daughter of an unnamed man and Nasreen Tarazi, and the older sister of Behrad Tarazi. She is also the close friend of Ava Sharpe, Sara Lance, and Nate Heywood, and the girlfriend of John Constantine.
At a young age, Zari became famous all over social media and was known as "Dragon Girl" for taming the dragon Wickstable at Heyworld. Years later, when Behrad came home with Nate, Zari recognized him from Heyworld and discovered that he was a time traveler. Before she was able to tell her parents, Behrad used a time courier to send her to Waverider, where she met the Legends and eventually decided to join the team. During the creation of "Loomworld", Zari's body was temporarily taken over by her alternate timeline self. Charlie later ripped Zari's life thread in half, giving a physical body to both versions of Zari. However, in an effort to keep Behrad from dying again, the previous Zari decided to return to the Air Totem. Despite still being connected to the totem, as thanks for helping keep their brother safe, Zari recently decided to swap places with her other self and essentially take turns being in and out of the totem with her, so that they can both have a relationship with their brother, as well as both continue being a part of the Legends.

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. Behrad eventually became the owner of the Air Totem in a family with the surname Tarazi since it did not need to be hidden by 2042.
At some point before 2042, Zari began dating DJ S'More Money. The two separated after he cheated on her with Les-lay and leaked the photos. Zari attended the 2044 VMA's and arrived being carried like a goddess. At some point, Zari became friends with Blue Ivy.

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 using a time courier.
Joining the Legends
Zari was locked in a room aboard the Waverider, but eventually managed to hack into Gideon's mainframe to escape after she regained some memories of a version of herself from the previous timeline. Later, she went to a prom in 1989 with the Legends where she was attacked by the Prom Night Slasher in a limousine. However, Zari managed to use her Dragonesque perfume to fend off Kathy until Kathy was defeated by Behrad using the Air Totem. Upon realizing why Behrad had the family totem, Zari decided to stay with him and the Legends for awhile. After defeating Marie Antoinette who was an encore, Zari befriended Ava Sharpe and started regain more memories of a version of herself from the previous timeline.
Zari travelled to the World between worlds in the hopes of figuring out why she was having these memories of someone else's life. In the World between worlds she met Zari Tomaz and they talked about the differences between their lives. After coming out of her trance, she saw that Behrad had been murdered by Atropos. Stung, Zari looked for John Constantine and asked him if he could bring her brother back using the Loom of Fate.
Zari went to Constantine's house with the Legends, where he used a spell to try to summon the last piece of the Loom. However, spell failed when Sara Lance passed out and Zari and John fell into a portal while trying to grab the ring. They realize that they are still in John's house, but that they are in the past when his house was a boarding house run by an old woman named Mrs. Hughes. Zari and Constantine check in and meet a man named Dr. White, who ends up being Jack the Ripper who was an encore. They managed to defeat him, but several other encores sent by Lachesis appeared, all of whom were looking for the last piece of the Loom. Zari then disguised herself as Cleopatra while John disguised himself as Jack the Ripper in order to deceive the encores. After they killed the encores, the Legends arrived and they managed find the last piece of the Loom.
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 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. 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".
Soon after, Zari travelled to 1950's California with the the Legends because an alien was located there that might help the team locate Sara. In California, the Legends scouted Big Bang Burger because Spooner felt the alien presence everywhere but could not pinpoint it.
Zari believed that her and Behrad should be sharing the Air Totem, but Behrad refused to share it. In an effort to find the alien, she became a hamburger cook alongside Behrad. Behrad tried to teach Zari how to cook hamburgers, but quit after the two got into a fight over who should wield the Air Totem. It was soon discovered that the special sauce applied to the hamburgers was of alien origin and caused people to crave meat insatiably. Customers began attacking the restaurant wanting meat; Zari, Behard, and Nate used Zari's Dragon Ash to calm the mob.
After the "Giant air feeder" was killed, Zari and Behrad argued about who should wield the Air Totem since both thought the other deserved the honour. Unbeknownst to them, Zari Tomaz was listening to their conversation within the World between worlds and annoyed by their bickering, Tomaz created a copy of the Air Totem, giving Zari her own totem.
Case of the ex
Just as Zari decided to spend some time with Constantine, she got a call from Les-lay who informed her that DJ S'More Money, her ex-boyfriend, was eviscerated by an alien and Les-lay wanted Zari to attend his funeral.
Zari told the Legends and Gideon showed the team the video of Lord Knoxacrillion killing S'More Money. The Legends decided to go to 2040's Los Angeles in order to stop S'More Money's death. Zari did not want to be there, avoiding calls from her mother, but revealed herself to the public, so Ava, Nate, and Behrad could enter the studio that "Da Throne" was taking place in.
Stopping a nuclear war
When Mick woke up Zari and the rest of the Legends because he found a clue that could lead them to Sara, Zari and Nate had an awkward chat where Nate mentioned that she looked like the original Zari. When the team arrived on the bridge of the Waverider, Ava and Mick told them about Kayla.
Zari calmed Constantine with a good breakfast when she saw that he was upset about how the Legends were treating his house. Later, she asked him why he allowed Astra to perform a complicated spell on Amelia Earhart instead of doing it himself; she suspected that he had lost his powers. Astra awoke and told Zari that she performed the spell because she was tired of playing second fiddle and Constantine owed her. Constantine then used his magic to make a flame appear on the tip of his finger and said that he was fine; Zari decided not to argue and accepted what he and Astra said.
While on a mission, Zari asked Nate what Tomaz did inside the Air Totem and was surprised to learn that Tomaz mostly asked about Behrad. That conversation led Zari to visit Tomaz in the World between worlds and she showed Tomaz some pictures of Behrad. Zari then told Tomaz to join Behrad's party before all of the cake was gone. When Tomaz expressed concern about the timeline, Zari told her that she talked to the ancestors and they told her that Behrad should be safe as long as either her or Tomaz stayed inside the World between worlds. Tomaz then thanked Zari and left the totem.

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.
