Zachary Zatara



===IDENTITY===

Full Name:Zachary Zatara
Codename:Zatara
Nickname(s):
Alias(es):most popular teenaged magician
Age:17
Birth date:13/May/1994
Classification:Homo MagI/Male
Affiliation:Good


===PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION===

Hair Color:Black
Eye Color:Green
Height:5'4
Weight:140 lbs
Other:


===POWERS===


Powers:Sorcery: Like other members of the Zatara family, Zachary is able to manipulate magic by speaking spells backwards. For example, saying "tegrof" would cause the target of the spell to forget something & saying "pots" would cause the target of the spell to stop in their tracks. powers have been shown to affect inanimate objects (such as bring them to life or use them as objects to fight crime), summon simple objects into existence (like rope to tie up criminals or a cage to imprision them or even a whip.), and transmogrify one object to another like turning a lampost into a sword, throwing stars into cookies, or even turn a small nuclear weapon or normal bomb into a balloon. (but not vice versa due to the fact he isn't that skilled yet) Like his uncle, the limits of Zachary's powers are almost unknown, and are far from concrete. Though they are unable to effect anything bigger than a large bulding like an appartment building or a motel. As a result of this, Zachary cannot do huge world changing things like bring about world peace, solve world hunger or (should he ever turn evil) destroy the universe.


===PSYCHOLOGICAL PROFILE===


Likes:Magic, Justice, Teen Titans, Ice Cream, flirting, himself, video games, fast food.


Dislikes:Being ordered about, being sick, evil, people who mock magic, greens, people who use magic for evil.


Strengths:Is highly skilled in magic and therefore cunning and devious aswell as heroic..


Weaknesses:Cocky, and Will take risks even when not needed.The only known limit to Zatara's magic is the time it takes for him to say the spell, including figuring out how to pronounce a phrase in "back-speech". His powers will not work on those with too strong a will, but they cannot reverse his magic. only he can do that.


Skills:Prestidigitation: Zachary Zatara is a master of the art of "sleight of hand" and is an accomplished stage magician.


Equipment: Magic wand and top hat.

Habits/Quirks:Is slightly mad, sleeps with the light on, is addicted to cherry soda, loves pranking people.


Personality:Is kind, brave, playfull, friendly, and smart, but arrogant, quick tempered, mischievous, cocky, Conceited and without tact.


===PERSONAL BACKGROUND===


Family:John Zatara (uncle, deceased), Sindella Zatara (aunt, deceased), Zatanna Zatara (cousin), Nostradamus; Alessandro Cagliostro; alchemists Nicholas Flamel and Evan Fulcanelli; and King Arion of Atlantis (all paternal ancestors)
Place of Origin:Unknown
Current City:Gotham City
History:He is the cousin of Zatanna and the nephew of the late Zatara, Zatanna's father. At the same time Zachary's magic powers manifested. Like his cousin, he was able to cast spells using backwards incantations.
His only friends are the Titans.

His uncle Giovanni Zatara was a magition/hero in his prime back in the 30's and was a member of the All-Star Squadron during the golden age during what is now referred to as the golden age. Zatanna, his cousin and a member of the Justice League attempted to train her cousin who rudely rejected her to train on his own. This in turn weakened the bond between the two considerably to the point of not speaking to eachother. He learned his craft overtime, and managed to work out how to say the backwards spells with much difficulty. But despite all that he continued to refuse his cousin's help.

Despite his only half powerful magic skills, The Zatara family is sure that Zachery's skills will improve with time and age.




The nephew of John Zatara sat ontop of a house in Suburban Gotham City. Zachary looked down at the driveway. He had caught wind that a group of burglars were going from neighborhood to neighborhood, robbing every house they could get into. This seemed as good a time as any to show them the power of the homo magi.

It was then that Zack saw a white van pull up outside of the house which roof he was on. He saw two masked figures get out.

Awesome. Now for some of that ol' Zatara magic.

Zack jumped down infront of the two thugs and smirked as he stepped out of the shadows towards them. Thew crooks had heard of The Zatara family and were horrified when they saw one standing ifront of them. Zachary removed his top hat and began to chat the backwards speaking magic, which his family was so well known for.

Epor! Eit pu eseht skoorc!

A rope instantly shot out of the hat, and began to wrap round them, like bandages round a mummy. Zachary chuckled as the villains screamed, but cared little for their begging.

When the two were fully turned into rope mummies, Zatara stood over them and waved his wand menacingly.

I tropsnart uoy ot eht ecilop noitats!

And with a muffled scream, the crooks vanished in a puff of smoke.

Zachary giggled mischievously to himself, and after waving the wand at himself and wishing himself home backwards, he too vanished.

He is the cousin of Zatanna and the nephew of the late Zatara, Zatanna's father. He learned of his powerful family in the wake of the Infinite Crisis. At the same time Zachary's magic powers manifested. Like his cousin, he was able to cast spells using backwards incantations.

I'm pretty sure there wasn't an Infinite Crisis on this site.

Quote :
His personality is special. He acts like an inmature adolecent. He is the kind of "playboy" man who likes parties and is around a lot of people but he really doesn´t have friends. His only friends are the Titans and Bunny who is his assistant during his shows.

This should go in personality, not history.

And considering Zatara is canon, and we don't allow canons unless there's a good RP Sample, and the thing closest to an RP Sample you have seems to be merged with your history, I'm gonna have to ask you to detail the Sample and separate it out from the history.

Quote :
Sorcery: Like other members of the Zatara family, Zachary is able to manipulate magic by speaking spells backwards. So far, his powers have been shown to affect inanimate objects, summon simple objects into existence, and transmogrify one object to another.

Too vague. Expand on his powers. Affect inanimate objects how? What he can do? What are the limitations of his effects on inanimate objects (considering Sorcery is pretty broad and powerful, there better be). How simple objects can he summon? Like a piece of paper simple, or, say, a table lamp simple... or maybe a whole building simple? Buildings are pretty simple mind you. Just a bunch of bricks put together and cemented. So, I'm gonna have to ask you how simple. Examples work best.

And transmogrification. Once again, limits, details, examples. I'm not gonna allow you to transmogrify Mount Everest into a spoon, now am I? Expand on this please.

Still needs a bit of work. Sorry, I'm a bit demanding with canons.

Quote :

Snakes are not inanimate, and hax, unless that's specifically your power. Fierce Snakes yield a poison of 110 mg in a single bite. That would porbably be enough to kill over 100 people or 250,000 mice.

So, no snakes.

Quote :
transmogrify one object to another like turning a lampost into a sword, throwing stars into cookies, or even turn a small nuclear weapon or normal bomb into a balloon.

I guess he could turn a small nuclear weapon into the balloon. But if he does the vice versa, I'm going to bring down the Luluhammer on him. You hear me? ._.

Quote :
Like his uncle, the limits of Zachary's powers are almost unknown, and are far from concrete. Though they are unable to effect anything bigger than a large bulding like a city hall.

A city hall is very large. Or at least the one in my city is. And I don't want you to turn a city hall into... I dunno, a giant cannonball, so make it like something simple. Especially since this is Teen Titans. An average two storey building. Maximum. And by maximum I mean it takes a lot of effort to do that and you wouldn't usually be able to do it more than once per story.

Also in weaknesses you have:

Quote :
His powers will not work on those with too strong a will

You need to elaborate on that. What if my character has a strong will. Can I reverse you turning a lamp-post into a sword then? I don't think that makes sense, so you're gonna have to explain just a bit here.

And finally, I'm going to need a bigger history. I mean I think that's less than 4 lines. That's not gonna cut it. At least add another 8-12 lines. Introduce his parents and his heritage, explain what made him the person he is today. Why is he cocky and cheerful and not emo and dreadful? Why does he sleep with the lights on? Did he learn to cast magic by himself or did someone teach him?

And who is Bunny? Gonna need a description of Bunny. How did he meet Bunny? Is Bunny male or female, human or animal. I mean just listening to 'Bunny' makes me think of Bugs Bunny. Does he have Bugs Bunny as his assistant?

You can include any number of those in your history to expand it. Or add your own points, its your character after all.

As much as i'd like to do all that, i've been very busy as of late so it may take some time.
