Related to Rezo The Red Priest(a.k.a. Shabranigdo) Zelgadis is a powerful sorcerer and swordsman. However, Zel was unhappy with his skill and wished for more power. Rezo heard him and granted his wish, turning Zelgadis into a "chimera"; a creature whose body is made of stone. Enraged, Zel sought for a way to change back while pretending to serve Rezo. Zel is somewhat fickle in his loyalties - He served Rezo, but, when it was convient, he sided against Rezo with Lina. Later, thinking that he could return his body to normal by use of Bible of Zoma, he turned against Lina, Gourry, and Amelia, only to later side with them when he learned that his employer had lied to him.
Zel is 18 in Slayers TV series, 19 in Slayers Next, and 20 in Slayers Try.
