Character Bio

Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander photo
Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander is a wise and powerful Wizard of the First Order, protecting Richard from birth so that he could fulfill his destiny of becoming the first true Seeker in a thousand years, bringing down Darken Rahl's tyrannical rule of dark magic. And Zedd revealed that he is Richard's grandfather as well as the Seeker's protector. When the wizard assisted Richard use the three magical Boxes of Orden to destroy Rahl, he thought their quest was finally over.

Now, a new mission begins. The power of Orden used to kill Darken Rahl has an unintended consequence - creating a tear in the veil between their world and the world of the dead. Zedd teaches Richard Wizard's Second Rule: "The greatest harm can come from the best intentions." And Zedd tells Richard that only the Stone of Tears can prevent the Keeper of the Underworld from waging war on the land of the living. But the Stone has been lost for centuries beyond count. To find it would be a miracle. But Zedd must assist Richard achieve the impossible, or sit back and watch the Keeper kill every living thing.

When Zedd was a boy his father, Caracticcus Zorander, taught Zedd how to use his wizard powers. Zedd showed much promise in training. Caracticcus spent most of his time with Zedd while Thaddiccus, Zedd's younger brother, got to play. This caused some issues between the brothers. He then joined Darken Rahl's father Panis Rahl some time when he was young. Later on, Zedd met a woman named Erylin and had a daughter with her. We assume that Eyrlin died because she has not appeared so far.

Zedd and Panis Rahl were great friends, to the point where Panis declared that he loved Zedd (as a friend). When Panis Rahl called Zedd to assist him with Panis' "problem" (Panis couldn't father a child), offering to raise Zedd's rank to 1st Wizard, Zedd agreed to help Panis. Everything was great until Shota came up with a vision that Darken Rahl would grow up to be an evil tyrant, so Caracticcus poisoned Darken Rahl. When Panis found out, he killed Caracticcus, effectively ending his friendship with Zedd.

Some time later, Zedd found out his daughter was with child and that his grandchild would be the Seeker, so he went to his daughter and told her. When the boy was born, Zedd took Richard and went to Westland and stayed there with Richard until Kahlan, a Confessor, arrived. Zedd then joined Kahlan and Richard on the quest to defeat Darken Rahl. During this quest Zedd learned that his daughter had a second child, a girl named Jennsen who is completely immune to magic. Shortly after learning about this his daughter is killed by Denna. Richard and Zedd then send Jennsen to safety. While on this quest Zedd grows very close to Kahlan and seems to think of her as another grand-daughter. After returning to the Midlands twenty-two years after leaving, Zedd discovered that his mother had died while he was away.

Zedd is extremely powerful. He can shoot Wizard's fire out of his hands and throw people off their feet. Zedd is a man with a big appetite and is usually eating something. He is also a bit prideful. Zedd is well liked by everyone - even Cara eventually warms up to him.
