Queen Zephyr is the humble-yet-strong leader of the nation of Shevat. She is one of the few on the planet who knows some truth about the world. She has reigned at least since the time of the Shevat-Solaris War, making her 522 years old at the beginning of Xenogears.
In 9511, along with the Sages of Shevat and several other individuals, she was "punished" with the gift of eternal life through nanomachines for, in Karellen's mind at least, sacrificing Sophia to end the war.
Zephyr currently has has no spouse, family, children or relatives. She is a benevolent and gentle woman, yet harbors much sadness and has witnessed some truly unbearable things in her lifetime.
In the second disc of the game Shevat is destroyed during the resurrection of Deus and crash lands on one of the northern snow-covered islands of the world. She remained queen of the surviving population of Shevat and the rest of the world in the Snowfield Hideout.
- "The snow keeps falling... Softly covering up everything in this world... Our sorrow, our defilement, our mistakes... If only we could wipe away these things as easily as that... What have we... have I... been doing... been pursuing... for these past 500 years?"
- There is a discrepancy. Zephyr says she is 522 years old in-game, and 9999-522=9477. However, Perfect Works says Zephyr was born in 9486. The reason for this discrepancy is unknown. Perfect Works says, "Zephyr is born as Shevat's third Queen", but it is possible that this is actually when Zephyr became queen as a child.
- Fei can find a picture in Shevat. He claims it's an old picture with parents, a girl and a younger brother. It is implied this her family, and her younger brother was killed.
