Z is a young refugee who - because of the spread of the LEUP plague - has migrated with his father and two brothers to the Warpland military fortress. In the Warpland, Z will become a Skret: a young man who seeks odd jobs to make a living. Z, an outlaw a heart, does not have a problem with this career path. Dealing with a sense of disappointment for what his life has become is one of Z's main struggles.

The main motivation for Z is to take care of his brothers and father. He will do anything to protect them from harm.
