Zone stomach pain

Zone's stomach pains.

Zone's and Watts's fathers were publicly executed by the Galbadian government to set an example for other would-be rebels during the Timber War. In vengeance, Zone and Watts took over the Forest Owls in their fathers' stead.

Despite being the group's leader, Zone often lets Rinoa do the talking and take responsibility for the tougher tasks. He gets coincidental "stomach pains" whenever much pressure is laid upon him or he is asked to participate in the more dangerous missions. One notable example is when he decides to let Quistis have his train ticket to escape Timber, but when she tries to thank him he doubles over in pain and runs away.

White seed ship helm

Zone on the White SeeD Ship.

Later on Zone and Watts end up on the White SeeD Ship, his stomach pains now absent. When Squall tells Zone of Rinoa's comatose state Zone becomes angry, cursing Squall for not protecting her. He heads to the helm, and if Squall follows him there Zone has calmed down and explains he has learned how to pilot the ship.

Spoilers end here.


Shiva cardEdit


On the White SeeD Ship Zone will will give Squall a Shiva card and a Rename Card if he gives him a The Girl Next Door magazine for free. If Squall asks for money he gets gil instead.
