Background

James was descended from great warrior in the grand tradition of the Masai people. His family had great plans for James. However, James had other ideas. He thought that the Masai traditions were outdated and that the Masai had no real place in the modern world. When he saw the wealthy tourists from Europe and the West he felt a growing discontent with the Masai, and his place among them. He tried to talk to his father about the way his felt, but his father was a traditionalist would hear of anything different. Disgusted James ran away.

He was never sure how he ended up in a camp of soldiers, but he had no where else to go. The Masai would never accept him back. The man in charge of the camp was called Witch Doctor and he was preparing to invade the Congo and carve out a piece of the country for himself. Two months before the invasion was to begin medics working for Witch Doctor came through the came collecting blood samples.

A week later James was roughly awakened by Savage Lion, one of the Ubers working Witch Doctor. The Masai had faced lions for centuries, so James wasn’t afraid of the big Uber. Savage Lion thought James was amusing. James was taken to the tent of the Witch Doctor.

Witch Doctor told ham that he was going to perform a ceremony for James would make him into a great warrior. What Witch Doctor didn’t tell him was that the blood tests had shown that he was a latent Uber. Savage Lion stood in the doorway to keep him from leaving.

James was stripped and tied down on a table. He didn’t understand much of what was done to him next, but Witch Doctor poured strange powders on him and chanted strange words over him. There were many pricks from the table. Before it was over pain encompassed his frame. Eventually the transformation was complete and James was allowed up.

A full length mirror was brought in and James saw what had become of him. No longer was he a Masai but a freak of nature. He was half man, half zebra. He was horrified by the change and was going to attack Witch Doctor. However, Witch Doctor held up a fetish made from strands of his hair mixed with a zebra. He told James that he now held his soul and as long has he had the fetish James would serve him.

To make sure that James would stay loyal Witch Doctor gave the fetish to Savage Lion. James, or as Zebra joined the Hunt that day. He has regretted it ever since, but feels he can’t do anything because Savage Lion has the fetish.

Personality

James is a bad tempered man. He feels trapped in a situation he has no control over. This brings out a lot of anger in the man. It’s just like when he was with the Masai, except there he was trapped by tradition. He has exchanged one prison for another.

He doesn’t like being Zebra, but believes he has no choice in the matter. Witch Doctor made him into a monster, and Savage Lion holds his leash. James has a lot of regrets since he left the Masai, and would go back, but knows he would never be accepted.

Quote

“Look out man, Zebra is coming through.”

Powers

In his transformed state, Zebra is superhumanly fast. He can run faster than the fastest cheetah. Zebra has trained himself to perform a number of speedster attacks. From his dizzying spin attack where he grabs an opponent and spins them around until they’re too dizzy to attack to his “super-kick” in where Zebra runs at his foe as super speed and plants a kick into their chest. Most foes end up flying really far from such an attack.

Zebra runs so fast that he can run across water and even up side vertical surfaces. Also when he’s moving he becomes impervious to friction, and attacks become less effective against him. After the invasion of Azambia, Witch Doctor taught him how to return to his human form.

Appearance

When James becomes Zebra he takes on a lot of the characteristics of the Zebra. His head becomes very horse-like, including a mane that runs down his back, but no tail. His legs become zebra-like as well. In his Zebra form, he has hooves instead of feet. Naturally his body is covered with black and white fur. For a costume, Zebra just wears a loincloth in black and white. When in his human form, James dresses in the uniform of a soldier of Azambia.
