|Love interest(s)||John (one-sided; intermittent)|
|Residence|| Fort Pooda (formerly)|
Zaria is one of John's first enemies and a notable villain in his rogues gallery, and due to her high-ranking status as a villain she is also a foe of Syndicate and a member of the placeholder. She is the leader of the Zorya, a Fort Pooda-based Russian mafia. Zaria is a shapeshifter who gained her abilities in a similar incident to John, who she has a one-sided on and off attraction to. Zaria was created by KM and made her debut in Bandit Territory.
Zaria is a selfish and constantly calculating criminal that only ever acts in her own self-interest, making decisions that benefit her and her alone. She will even go so far as to work with heroes as a means to an end if need be, as she's done before with John, who she has a one-sided love–hate relationship with. Zaria has an incredible sense of self-preservation and is very perceptive in battle because of this.
