Zavok is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. He is a Zeti and is the leader of the Deadly Six.

Appearance

Zavok is a red Zeti with a very stocky build. The majority of his upper body is pure red. He has five-fingered hands that end with sharp cyan-colored nails. His lower jaw sticks out, showing a row of spiked fangs. The upper half of his head is black save for red markings around his eyes, which are purple with yellow sclera. Zavok has what appears to be a relatively thick cyan-colored unibrow that forms a vaguely V-shaped crest. Sticking out from the sides of his head, Zavok has two vicious curved horns that are striped in varying shades of dark gray. Zavok appears to be bald, sans for a cyan ponytail sticking out from the back of his head. Zavok has two rows of sharp black spikes sticking out of his shoulders. His only attire seems to be a pair of black bracelets with gray spikes jutting out.

History

Past

At some point in the past, a man named Dr. Eggman invaded the Lost Hex with his many Badniks. He enslaved Zavok and the other members of the Deadly Six with an ancient relic. Soon, he was freed unwillingly by Sonic the Hedgehog and thus exacted his revenge with his team by taking control of Eggman's Badniks with their electromagnetic powers. The Deadly Six were later stopped by Sonic, relinquishing their control of the Badniks.[1] Following their defeat, the Deadly Six took over one of Eggman's bases he left in Lava Mountain Zone and remade it in their image, calling it Zeti Castle.[2]

The Last Minute

One day at Zeti Castle, Zor reported to Zavok how the Eggnet was in chaos due to Dr. Eggman's doings on the world down below. The two were soon visited by a person named Dr. Starline. He introduced himself as an assistant to Eggman and requested that the Deadly Six help them with a current crisis that they were in. Starline let Zavok know that Eggman did not actually know he was on the Lost Hex but told him that working with the Eggman Empire once again would give the Deadly Six an opportunity to make ammends with the doctor, command incredible power and destroy Sonic. Hearing all of this made Zavok accept Starline's proposal. After the doctor left however, Zavok confided in Zor how Starline made a mistake and that they would capitalize on it.[2]

Personality

Zavok is a strong-minded individual who cares only for power and his team, the Deadly Six. He has a calm demeanor with little patience for time wasting. He despises those who pose a threat to him and sees himself as a figure above all others. Zavok is also quite a tactical thinker and knows to always seize opportunities when they present themselves.

Powers and abilities

Zavok has the ability to control machinery with his mind.[1]
