Overview[edit]
Overview

Zato-One is the former leader of the Assassin's Guild who traded his vision with the power to control his shadow, namely Eddie. New to Strive, Zato possesses the ability to command Eddie to cancel his moves into each other, allowing the two to launch even more coordinated attacks. Zato's unique controls can make him hard to master, and playing as him can require higher execution and character knowledge than average.


Lore:The former leader of the Assassin's Guild, now revived after once experiencing death.

Before his resurrection, he was a calm and thoughtful person. However, after all he went through, he ended up unable to feel an emotional response to anything. He no longer finds significance in anything in his life, be it good or bad, nor can he feel joy or anger.

The closest he gets to feeling emotion would be his feelings for Millia.
