Appearance

Zee is a beautiful and fair-skinned teenager with a pronounced hourglass figure, and thick mid-thigh-length light indigo hair with straight bangs and lavender-colored streaks. She also has almond-shaped light violet eyes with feminine-looking eyelashes protruding from them, and sports makeup which consists of thick mascara, light pink blush, and dark maroon lipstick on her lips.

As a civilian, Zee wears a black waistcoat with a singular dark magenta button on the front, worn over a long-sleeved white blouse with an accessorized black ribbon hanging from the peter-pan collar. She also wore a short dark magenta skirt and black calf-high, high-heeled boots.

As Zatanna, her hair becomes sparkly with different shades of purple, and her superhero attire consists of a black cape with dark magenta lining, held by an oval-shaped fuchsia jewel, a long-sleeved, fitted black leotard with a white design, grayish-purple tights underneath, and thigh-high black stiletto boots.

Personality

Zee is a stickler for rules. Zatanna could, but not always be bragging about herself, but really she is a good, helpful, and loyal friend. She can lose her temper when nobody likes her magic acts, her temper can get the best of her and make her explode by sometimes making a spell go wrong as shown in "Tough Crowd." She can be a bit selfish, jealous, and snooty as shown in "Fresh Princess of Ren Faire." She is the most fashion-focused girl in the group. Aside from having the most outfits out of any of the girls, she's also the one they go to for ideas, such as Diana in "#SweetJustice" and Kara in "#PowerSurge". In her profile video, Batgirl even describes her as "stylish," and the school yearbook lists her as "Most Likely to Become An Actress." She also uses her phone for mostly selfies. Despite her ego, she does take her passion very seriously, and has no room for horsing around.

Deception in the series

Background

Zee Zatara is the daughter of Giovanni Zatara and Sindella Zatara. She inherited magic from both parents: light magic from her father and dark magic from her mother. One day when she was turning five years old, her mother abandoned her and her father for unknown reasons, as shown in "Happy Birthday Zee". Since then, every Zee birthday has turned out to be the best day of the year.

As explained in "Abracadabrapalooza," Zee and her father, Giovanni Zatara would travel cross country performing basic magic tricks from fairs to birthday parties in order to get their act off the ground and while they didn't get their big break, Zee loves performing with her father. One morning, Zee wakes up (while not noticing she's performing magic) and discovered a mysterious pink dot on her nose, thinking it was a pimple but when she tried to cover it, it disappeared and more dots started to reappear, causing her to hide it from her father.

During her trip, Zee began to unintentionally use magic such as pulling a coin out of a kid's ear, only to cause the ear to release an unlimited supply of coin, teleporting in and out while talking to a young boy, talking backwards while getting a burger, which caused the burgers and fries to fly out to the counter towards her and even more uncontrollable magic occurs while still trying to hide it from her father.

Later during practice, Zee discovered that she and her father were invited to be in "Abracadabrapalooza", a big show for magic. However, on the night of the event, Zee told her dad she wasn't going to perform, causing her father to be sad upon hearing that. After he left, Zee began to experience more uncontrollable magic, causing her father to burst in and discover the truth, only to discover that he's also magic and was proud that she got her powers too. After been given a chest containing a book that will allow her to control her magic, Zee and her father perform and was discovered on stage by a bookie, where after traveling the world performing magic, Zee's father was hired to work at the casino/hotel in Metropolis, thus starting a new life in the city.

Season 1

In "Sweet Justice", she is seen when Barbara Gordon transferred from Gotham to Metropolis, after Zee magically picked up her backpack, making Babs suspicious of her. Once Zee was enrolled in Metropolis High School where she would be lured into a food fight by Babs. It turned out that the food fight was schemed by Barbara so that she would be placed in detention with four other individuals that she suspected were superheroes, namely Karen, Kara, Jessica, and of course Zee. The group were joined by a mysterious girl called Diana who had been caught wandering the streets. On discovering that Diana had travelled to Metropolis to save what she called 'the world of man', she and Barbara manged to persuade a reluctant Zee and the other three girls into forming a superhero team. While the team almost immediately fell apart after their first mission they managed to pull together to defeat a robot army by Lena Luthor, cementing Zee's partnership with the rest of her team.

Zee's very first paid performance as a solo magician is depicted in the episode "Adventures In Bunnysitting", she performs magic at a children’s birthday party in front of a crowd of three children at a park. The performance is interrupted when the spawn of the magical bunnies floods the park. At first Zee and Kara, who was supposed to watch the bunnies and keep them apart, sweep the spawn into Zee's top hat and make them disappear, but more and more keep flooding in. Zee casts a hate spell, but this turns the flood of bunny spawn into a giant bunny monster made up of individual bunny spawn. Kara is eaten by the giant bunny monster but flies out with the two magical bunnies in her hands and breaks the bunnies from their embrace, making all their spawn disappear.

  • Zatanna is the most powerful member of the Super Hero Girls in the series.
