Zed is a female Anubian Baskurr currently owned by Kevin Levin, and formerly by Khyber.

Appearance

Zed is a dinosaur and dog-like alien, being dark blue in color. She has spike-like hair running down from her collar to the tip of her tail. She has sharp red eyes and black lines on her neck and legs.

Zed used to wear a red spiked collar that had the Nemetrix on it, but now she wears a light blue collar with a gold bone-shaped dog tag.

Personality

Zed, as Khyber's pet, was very savage and aggressive. She was also a lot more feral, and was very loyal to Khyber prior to the events that led to Khyber taking the Nemetrix away.

When Kevin saved her, Zed became loyal to him and soon became his pet, where he discovered her true gender much to Gwen's surprise. After being taken in by Kevin and, by extension, Gwen, Zed seemed to have calmed down and is a lot more tame than before.

Zed is able to understand others and their intentions better than most humans can.

Zed doesn't like Argit.[MW 1] However, she did let him ride on her back in Weapon XI: Part 2.

History

Edit pencil.png This section needs expansion. You can help by adding information.

Powers and Abilities

Zed is very fast, agile, and strong (able to throw Ben with ease). She was able to sense that there was something not quite right about Gwen's classmate, Dante, growling when he was near.

Equipment

Zed used to have the Nemetrix on her former collar, which allowed her to transform into alien monsters that are the predatory species of Omnitrix aliens.

Nine predatory beasts have been seen used by Zed:

Weaknesses

Zed is not completely loyal and can be manipulated by anyone who uses a whistle that is at the same frequency as Khyber's gills. Azmuth built a whistle in order to turn Zed against Khyber and Dr. Psychobos. This does not last if someone shows love and care.

Like a regular dog, if someone scratches behind Zed's ear, she will become tame.[1] This also does not last.

Feeding Zed will dull her hunting instinct.[2][3]

Trivia

  • When Greg Cipes requested that Kevin get a dog, Derrick J. Wyatt started designing an earth dog for him before they decided to give him Zed.[DJW 1]
  • While Zed belonged to Khyber, she didn't have a name because Khyber saw her only as a tool to hunt, and didn't care about her enough to name her.[DJW 2]
  • Khyber almost never fed Zed, preferring to let her hunt for her own food.[3]
  • In Showdown: Part 2, it was revealed by Kevin that Zed is female, much to Gwen's shock.
    • Azmuth and Khyber didn't know this.[1][4]
  • During the events of The End of an Era, Zed was at home with a grounded Devlin Levin.[DJW 3]
  • Zed was supposed to appear in The Frogs of War: Part 2, but her part was cut for time.[DJW 4] She was, however, in the credits where her new name, "Zed" was revealed.
  • The out-of-universe reason for Kevin adopting Zed is due to Greg Cipes' love of animals. Early on, there were some thoughts of an Earthling dog for Kevin.[DJW 5]
  • A scene with Ship and Zed interacting was discussed, but it did not come to pass.[MW 2]
  • Zed has similarities to Ship:
    • Both are dog-like aliens.
    • Zed can detect if something is wrong with a person[5] just like Ship.[6]
  • "Zed" also happens to share the same name of the Tetramand deity.[7]
  • Coincidentally, Kevin previously had an alien pet in the Null Void that he called a dog.[DM 1] He took the pet to a vet named 'P'str'ph'.[DM 2]
