Zin Vathek (ジン・ヴァセック), also known as the Immovable (不動), is an A-rank bracer affiliated with branches in Calvard. A prominent martial artist proficient in the Taito style, Zin played a significant part in solving the crisis the Kingdom of Liberl faced during the events of the Gospel Plan.

Profile

Appearance

Zin's most striking feature is his tall, muscular physique. He has long, brown hair tied back in a single pony tail. He dresses in the style of his home country Calvard, sporting loose-fitting trousers bound with metal bands, a purple sleeveless tabard over an open collar shirt, flat steel toe-cap shoes and a large yellow scarf around his shoulders. Zin's outfit features several features useful for defensive martial arts, such as bandages around his upper arm and shin, purple hand wraps and metal embellishments on his shoes.

He makes use of metal arm braces as his weapon of choice, featuring a blue colour, silver trim and red ties. The guard extend up to his forearm where it ends in a tapered point. Beneath his braces Zin wears padded yellow cloth braces which are in turn covering his purple hand wraps.

Personality

Vathek is a friendly and dependable man. He readily comes to the aid of others and is all too willing to lend his assistance to strangers and those he has recently become acquainted with. Zin has historically lacked self-confidence and resolve, once believed by his master to be holding back his true strength out of feelings of inadequacy and self-imposed doubts. Zin loves to drink a lot and often pulls out a large gourd shaped vessel to celebrate. He acts like a big brother figure to everyone despite his excessively huge and scary stature.

He is a practitioner of Wushu (martial arts), specialised in the Taito school. Although is he not considered among the strongest of the A-rank bracers, he is still able to rival Walter. Zin is an old acquaintance of Cassius Bright and Scherazard Harvey.

Background

Zin was once a student training under the Taito Style in Calvard under Master Ryuga Rouran with his fellow pupils, Kilika Rouran and Walter. After his master's death, he continued to train and eventually became one of Calvard's A-rank Bracers, establishing many guild connections in and out of the Republic. His reputation grew to such an extent that the republic's shady syndicates consider him a threat. Zin was one of many bracers involved in the large scale, cross-national operation to dismantle the D∴G cult.

One of his connections was Cassius Bright, a fellow bracer whose rank was one grade higher. At one point during a joint operation, Zin accepted a request from his old friend as reciprocation for a favor owed. That request was to assist his children training to be bracers back in Cassius' home country of Liberl, where Zin planned to participate in the Grancel Martial Arts Tournament.

Trails in the Sky FC

Zin is introduced in Trails in the Sky FC, where he visits Liberl per the request, and in absence, of Cassius Bright. Zin states that he owes Cassius a favour from his time in Calvard. He travels with Estelle and Joshua Bright and attends the martial arts tournaments in City of Grancel with them. He would later extend his assistance in helping the young pair access the Calvardian embassy and even played a great role in reaching the depths of the Sealed Area in order to stop Alan Richard's plans for a coup.

Trails in the Sky SC

Zin makes his reappearance saving Estelle bright in Zeiss, from thereon joining her party once again to investigate the mysterious earthquakes that were troubling the region.

Trails in the Sky SC addresses the relationship between Zin, Bracer Guild receptionist Kilika Rouran and Ouroboros Enforcer No. VIII, Walter. Zin and Walter were originally disciples of Ryuga Rouran, Kilika's father, in the Taito school of martial arts. When a duel between Ryuga and Walter led to the death of their master, the two disciplines went into separate ways.

Now his enemy, Zin and Walter meet again during Ouroboros's execution of the Gospel Plan in Liberl. It turns out Walter had been behind the series of earthquakes affecting the area through the use of a large orbment that was agitating the Septium veins. Zin makes his reappearance saving Estelle bright from Walter, from thereon joining her party once again. Walter and Zin would come into conflict with other once more atop the Carnelia Tower but it would be onboard the Liber Ark and within the Axis Pillar where the fated pair would have their decisive duel.

Zin learns from Walter that before their duel Ryuga proposed that his his most talented disciple would inherit the Taito school. Walter demanded a match with Zin to determine the successor and after he kept insisting Ryuga proposed a deathmatch with Walter in Zin's stead. Walter's victory meant the death of their master. In turn, Zin informs Walter that Ryuga had already been diagnosed with a malignant tumour and wouldn't have had long to live. Their final battle in Liberl ends with Zin's victory.

Erebonia

During the events of Trails of Cold Steel IV, Zin has been working together with Fie Claussell. After cancellation of the Great Twilight, Zin was one of the guests at the wedding reception of Olivert Reise Arnor and Scherazard Harvey's wedding.

Hajimari no Kiseki

In late 1207, he is recommended to be promoted to S rank. However due to feeling neither his skills or achievements match up to Cassius Bright's, he remains hesitant about accepting.

  • Zin's English voice actor, Patrick Seitz, is the same voice of Dogi, a main character from another Falcom series called Ys.
