Agent Zephyr
Agent Zephyr
Officially “created” in 2021 per ADVENT records, Zephyr served as a loyal, mind-controlled ADVENT soldier until she was mentally liberated by a resistance faction, the Skirmishers. She joined the cause of her saviors and fought alongside XCOM until the war’s end.

Zephyr is a living weapon and one of Chimera Squad’s most brutal melee combatants. She can pummel enemies with brute force, parry incoming damage, then vanish across the battlefield with her blink-and-you-miss-it mobility.

Zephyr is a hybrid and former human who fought for ADVENT during the occupation. Zephyr was separated from the psionic network by the Skirmishers resistance faction later in the occupation, and fought with the Skirmishers against ADVENT during the war. Following her failure to discover anything about her pre-hybrid life, she joined Chimera Squad in the hopes of finding a new purpose in life.

Zephyr has no means of attacking from long range and cannot upgrade her weapon, but is nevertheless able to deal heavy damage in melee. Enemies not killed outright by her attacks are likely to suffer from the debuffs that they can inflict, allowing teammates to finish them off easily. She also possesses excellent mobility, allowing her to move quickly between targets or reach cover before enemies can retaliate.
