Zian is a tall lanky man with olive eyes and brown hair. He is very polite and studious. He was a wandering Shongu when he encountered the outcast Suzhen and her little ward, Kayame. They fell in love and married and would often make a living scamming villages. Eventually they were caught and taken away by Kyunnai. The story starts with him in a coma in the Chamber of the Sleepers in Nidhol. He has been in a coma for 52 years though he still looks 23, but unlike Suzhen he does not awaken.
