Zaymus was born with a birth-defect. He is unable to feel Empathy in any way and unable to really understand emotions like happiness or sadness. However, Zaymus is a really smart man, a very fast learned and analyzes situations in a matter of seconds. His thoughts are rather twisted however, due to his defect and the influence of the Heartless he has become part of. He has a fascination for torturing people and watch their emotions go wild in front of him, liking to hit his 'subjects' at their mind and not their bodies most of the time.
Should the manipulation not have the effect he wants, he will change to more drastic matters, using violence and pure aggression to get the reaction he desired. As a Heartless, Zaymus can't help but feel a need to eat peoples hearts, though he doesn't mind at all that he kills others for his own needs. He might be slightly disappointing, should his hunger make him kill a interesting being he wanted to analyze more. He is very fascinated by the transformation he went through and how it effected the view of people on him. He is easily described as a mad individual and psychopath.
His goal to wipe out human's and make them become the Higher Species is his favorite thing to talk about, should he ever really talk to people about it. He is also a fan of Ansem, admiring his work and his control over the Heartless.
He also has a shadow with him some times, calling it 'Little Brother'. It follows him around a lot.
Zaymus was born into a rather poor family in his home world. His Father was working in the woods as a hunter, his mother staying at home to take care of him and his little brother most of the time, especially since Zaymus turned out to be a kid of special needs. Zaymus was born with a birth defect, that made it unable for him to really understand feelings and read emotions correctly. His family didn't have much food for themselves and their life was rather hard, the family only having a small house close to the woods his father was hunting in. Zaymus was a very smart child and very talented in learning things in a incredible speed, but his incapability to socialize made it impossible for him to really play with other children his age or his little brother. Even though Zaymus couldn't read emotions, he was starting to create a fascination for them. He spend hours watching people on the streets, trying to understand what was happening in their interactions. Since he just couldn't understand it, even after observing from such a distance, he started to get a hobby when he reached the age of 7. He started to catch animals and perform experiments on them, trying to understand how and if they are able to feel anything. Those experiments started out rather harmless, but slowly turned more and more violent and cruel. One of the creatures he was using a torch and attacked him one day and that was the day Zaymus found out about his ability to perform magic. His new discovery didn't stay hidden for long, the clan of mages in the region finding out about it pretty fast and offering to take the kid under their wings to try and teach him how to use his powers correctly. Since the family had no idea how to handle the kid, they agreed and gave him to the mages to train.
The time Zaymus was learning how to use his abilities, his hobby seemed to become less of a problem, until he reached the age of 20. Zaymus was one of the smartest students in the academy and already reached high levels of magic. He was studying in the library one night when news about the heartless reached his ears. Creatures that eat the hearts of people? What an interesting being that must be, he thought to himself. He decided to take a look into the matter, studying all the information he could get on them before he would move out and take a look at the beasts himself. He was astonished as he watched them from a safe distance and saw the first time they devoured a heart. Zaymus wanted to know more about this monsters and study them, from that day forward! He wanted to know how they worked, what they 'felt'. After many years of studying them, he learned that they, just like him, are unable to understand emotions, but are craving them with all their being. Feeling a deep connection to these beasts, he started to work on a magic spell, that would get him as close to these creatures as possible. He wanted to experience everything these creatures experienced, starting to believe that Heartless are the race that had been send to cleanse the stars, he being one of their messengers, send to this world to bring it salvation.
Zaymus was close to reaching his goal at the age of 29, his spell almost ready after years of setting everything up for this final moment, when the Order of the Mages found out about his plan and tried to stop him. A group or soldiers was part of the attack, one of them his younger brother, Liam. Liam tried to talk sense into his brother, telling him to stop this madness, but Zaymus just smiled at him.
“Don't worry, little brother. You too will understand soon.”
He went on a rampage on the soldiers, killing all of them except Liam, who he offered as a meal to one of the heartless he held as pet, telling Liam it was his 'Gift' to him to become one of these creatures himself. Before the order could enter, Liam sealed down the Cavern he had prepared the ritual in, taking Liam's Heartless with him inside, where he had locked up a rather strong Heartless he had found in his home world. He performed his well-planned spell inside, fusing himself with the creature he had captured to become a being of 'perfection' himself without losing his intellect, like all these other monsters have. Slowly after having turned, the heartless were released on the star, Zaymus fighting along side with them and pulling his home into ruin.
He now wonders the worlds, trying to become even stronger, so he could one day reach the top of all heartless and guide them on their mission himself.
Heartless-Form: This Form reaches up to 2,10 m when he stands on his two legs.
Zaymus is about 1,79 m tall as a human, the left side of his body mostly by dark-violet skin and Heartless-traits. The left part of his face is deformed slightly by the influence of the Heartless he has fused himself with, a big horn on the left side of his head and a small one on the other where the corruption doesn't fully reach in this Form. He has claws on both hands and sharp teeth on the left side of his mouth. His left eye is always glowing yellow, like that of a normal heartless.
The right part resembles more of his human traits, his hair on the left side dark-violet with red ends, the hair on the rights side still his normal hair color, his right eye a deep forest-green. He wears a long robe of a magician, colored in a dark purple with torn fabric at the ends on his sleeves and the robe itself. His boots are black with red ornaments.

“Magnificent. These creatures are truly blessed, don't you think?”
“Humanities time has been up for a very long time. Now it's time for the greater species to take over.”
“So, this is where they come from?”
Zaymus was standing in front of the dark ocean in the Realm of Darkness, watching the light in the distance with a tilt of his head, a few heartless watching him from behind. They have followed him all the way here, after Zaymus had used his first teleport, when his home was eaten by the darkness. His eyes almost shone with excitement, a grin forming on his face that showed his deformed left side of his jaw.
“This is.. beautiful. Oh, what a Realm to call home, indeed. I want to see all of it!”
He saw down in the sand, a few heartless coming closer now to take a look at the newcomer in their ranks that seemed so different than them. One of the heartless was grabbed by Zaymus claw, pulling him onto his lap.
“Do you see this, Little Brother? What do you say? Do you want to discover this paradise with me?”, he asked the Shadow, the creature just tilting it's head an looking at him with those yellow eyes. Zaymus blinked, the grin widening. It didn't do or say anything ,just stare at him. It was a mindless creature, so of course it wouldn't react to the question, but Zaymus seemed to hear and see other things.
“What? Really? Oh, Brother, I never felt so close to you before! Aren't you happy you accepted my gift?”
He got up, holding his brother like a puppy and twirling around with him for a moment.
“Just you wait. This is just the beginning. I will make all those stars like this!”
He hugged the heartless, holding it close to the heartless-emblem on his chest.
“Yes... Now I am more whole than I ever was, but I am sure there is more I can uncover. More I can become. And I think I am starting to get this Hunger..... Ah, yes, yes. Let's get something to eat and start on our quest!”
With that he opened a portal and 'happily' went through it
“Just a little snack~ Just a little game, to play! Oh, how I like to play Games.”
