36 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

Know that I have read this and a few more Zack stories, I've been wondering... Yeah, I know, scarey thought. XD But seriously, I heard of Seph's past and Cloud's past, but what of Zack? I remember him growing up in Gongaga, with loving parents. Did Zack not get his killer nature until joining Shinra, or has he always had it? And if he did get it during his time with the military, was he influenced by the other soldiers, or did he just do everything based on his own morals and expectations?

Well, at least in COI, that sociopathic or 'killer nature' streak has always been part of Zack's nature. He knows all the proper social conventions and can blend in perfectly with society, but deep in his heart, he really doesn't care that much about people (other than his Special People(tm)). In that way, he's very much like an animal. A dog may be fabulously devoted to one or a few special people, and quite friendly most of the time with everyone else, but it doesn't have any moral qualms about biting or attacking someone who threatens himself or his people.

This very nature is one of the reasons he left placid, backwater Gongaga -- he was bored and he knew he didn't fit in. So he went to Midgar in pursuit of adventure and to find something worth doing. So his military training only honed the edge that was already present in Zack. And then, he bumped into Sephiroth and found his 'something worth doing'. ^_^

If Zack had not met Sephiroth and if his protective instincts had ended centering on himself and not someone else, that would be seriously scary. Zack is quite the chaos creator and prankster already -- think how much trouble a smart, truly sociopathic, really bored Zack would be. ::shudder::

I also would like to anticipate a story about rookie Zack...? It would be most entertaining.
