Zari Tarazi[1] (born c. 2009/2010),[2] 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, the older sister of Behrad Tarazi, and the close friend of Ava Sharpe, Sara Lance, and Nate Heywood.

At a young age, Zari became famous all over social media and was known as "Dragon Girl" for taming the dragon Wickstable at Heyworld.[1]

After joining the Legends, she eventually developed a relationship with teammate John Constantine.[3]

Biography

Early life

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.[2] In 2019, Zari became famous all over social media for taming the dragon Wickstable at Heyworld and was nicknamed "Dragon Girl".[1] 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.[4]

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.[2]

At some point before 2042, Zari began dating DJ S'More Money.[5]

Tarazi Family

When the Legends altered the timeline at Heyworld, Zari became famous, eventually becoming a socialite and an entrepreneur. When Behrad and Nate Heywood visited her family in 2042 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 lover Zari Tomaz, hadn't aged a day since 2019. Before she could reveal the truth to her parents, Behrad transported Zari aboard the Waverider.[1]

Changing fate

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.[6]

Glowing Legends

Zari is the only Legend who remained mortal.

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. When the plan was successful and the chalice was obtained, 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.[7]

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.[3]

Loomworld

The body of Zari Tarazi with the mind of Zari Tomaz

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.[8]

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.[9]

Tomaz's Farewell

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.[9]

Personality

As a result of becoming famous at a very young age, as well as becoming a self-made millionaire by the time Zari was 19 years old; she was extremely arrogant, egotistical, selfish, rude, and disrespectful. Due to these traits of hers, 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 him over her.[1]

However, after joining the Legends, Zari started to become less arrogant, egotistical, selfish, rude, and disrespectful through the team's missions. She also started to repair her relationship with Behrad and began a friendship with Ava Sharpe.[5]

Powers and abilities

Powers

  • 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.[10] After Behrad's death, Zari began wielding the Air Totem.[11]
    • Aerokinesis: The totem grants Zari the power to manipulate and generate the air.[10]
      • Air blasts: The totem allows Zari to fire blasts of air from her hands.[10]

Abilities

  • Genius-level intellect/Computer specialist/Master computer hacker: Zari has 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.[12][10] 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.[5]
    • Bilingual: Zari is capable of fluently speaking English and Farsi.[1]
    • 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.[5] Zari's skills even enabled her to pose as Cleopatra to a room full of "encores".[11]
    • 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.[5]

Equipment

  • Totem wristband: After Behrad’s death, Zari began wearing a special bracelet that allows her to bear the Air Totem.[11]
    • Air Totem: All of Zari's powers come from her totem, which allows her to manipulate the element of air.[10][11]

Former equipment

  • Dragonesque: Zari had a brand of perfume known as Dragonesque, presumably since she is 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.[5]
