Zena (ゼナ?) also known as Xena, is an Alien Shadow (シャドー星人 Shadō Seijin?) and one of the characters of Ultraman Geed. Originally the drillmaster to his kind's invasion force, Belial's rampage lands him on a job as an AIB agent and eventually redeemed him from his past actions.
Subtitle: Space Guerrilla (宇宙ゲリラ Uchū Gerira?)
His name is Greek for "Sons of Zeus", which can also be interpreted as welcoming or hospitable.
Zena was once a member of the Alien Shadow invasion force and trained a group of Gabra Cano child soldiers, among them being Kuruto. As a result of Ultraman Belial's attack on Planet Shadow and Crisis Impact, Zena was separated from his kin after his home planet became inhabitable. Alongside other alien victims of Crisis Impact, Zena joined the AIB and initially planned to restore Planet Shadow's glory until the deaths of his former students allows him to move on and coexist with other races instead of conquering them. He also came in possession with the Zegan Retriever Device and planned to dispose it or use the monster in times of need.
Sometime ago while investigating a trespassing Alien Zelan, he was surprised of young Moa Aizaki tending the alien and not showing signs of discomfort to its appearance. Interested with her bravery, he took the young woman under his wing and trained her as a proper agent. Despite Moa's antics and carelessness, he never loses his patience and instead view her as an important member due to her presence laid a huge impact to the entire organization.
At the advent of Ultraman Geed's appearance, Zena and the AIB would investigate the Ultra himself with members of the organization had mixed receptions of Geed either as a hero or a villain. Seeing Kei Fukuide's involvement in recent strings of monster attacks, Zena and Moa found that he is an Alien Sturm and sought the help of Ultraman Zero to investigate Belial's coordinate.
Zena met his former student Kuruto and captured while the latter try to reawaken Zegan and invade Earth to restore the glory of Planet Shadow. With Moa absorbed from a nearby portal, he discovered Riku's identity as Geed to search for both his partner and student. Discovering Kuruto, Zena immediately plead him to cease the invasion and offered his own life but his former student found himself beyond redemption, forcing both Geed and Zero to end his life. This eventually left Zena with a damaged part of Zegan Retriever Device as a memento of his former students.
Powers and Weapons
- Combat Strategy/Military Training: Since he is an Alien Shadow, Zena is an expert in martial arts, infiltration and guerrilla combat tactics. Some of these traits are retained when joining AIB, which he also uses to capture trespassing aliens on Earth. He is also a capable escapologist, as shown outsmarting Kuroto's cohorts (both are Alien Shadows) before trying to stop him from awakening Zegan.
- Human Disguise: Zena can change his alien appearance to a human form. It was done through a Wireless Bluetooth Headset that he wears on his left ear, which emits holographic imagery that covers the intended parts (head and hands).
- Pistol: The standard handgun of AIB agents.
- Signal Interference Shroud: Although never shown using it, Kuroto's use of said device is a result from Zena's own teachings, hinting that he had once used the Interference Shroud when fighting as an invader.
- This Alien Shadow seems to be much 'cleaner' than its predecessors, as the white of its helmet and gold of its face appears to be more vivid then in its race's original appearance.
- His voice actor Shintaro Asanuma previously portrayed Alien Bat in Ultra Zero Fight. This series as well features both Zero and Belial, whose actor also reprise the role.
- Although Hideyoshi portrays Zena, his mouth never opens while in his human appearance, with Shintaro's voice dubbed over. This is to show that it is in fact a simple disguise, and not his true form.
