|1st Comic Appearance|
A Dreadnok so nasty that he is detested by the rest, Zanzibar was raised on a garbage scow, and spent most of his formative years as a pickpocket in crowded ports. He's lived as a river pirate, smuggler, and even a con man in the stocks and bonds trade. When he tried to steal back a tanker of stolen gasoline that he once sold to Zartan, he made an impression with the Dreadnok leader. Rather then be swindled again, Zartan decided to place him on retainer so he could at least keep an eye on him. Zanzibar overplays the role of a pirate to the letter, raiding waterways aboard his nimble air skiff with a surplus of bluster. Many suspect the eye patch is simply an affection.
