AppearanceHair: Sandy blondeEyes: BlueSkin: TanBody Mods: N/AHeight/Weight: 6'0/163Overall: Zack looks like many of his siblings, with sandy blonde hair and sharp blue eyes, he can easily be identified as a son of Apollo, as well as with the athletic build that his children share. He's a good looking guy, attracting the attention of many demigod females, only to turn them down. He has defined torso muscles from years of working a bow and pays close attention to his hair. It must be perfect. All the time. The DemigodMother:
Emily StrattonFather: Apollo
Weapon: His main weapons is his bow and arrow as well as curses. Powers: The children of Apollo have many powers and abilities due to Apollo's wide portfolio. When he is in sunlight, all of his abilities and prowess is stronger. He has keen, sharp eyes which makes him an excellent archer and can see further than most. His voice is enchanted and if he sings to his father, he can heal. He can enchant his bow as well. And along with his voice, he is also an excellent musician, able to play any instrument he can get his hands on. As Apollo is skilled at healing, so are his children and Zack is no exception. They can also manipulate light to the point where they can become practically invisible. He knows the exact position of the sun at all times. He can't control fire but he can control heat, making things burning hot to a point of scarring.
Fatal Flaw: Zackery's fatal flaw is not taking anything seriously. To Zack, everything is a big game and he treats it as such. On the InsidePersonality: To someone that he likes, he can be a whirlwind of adventure and fun. Never liking to sit in one place, he is constantly on the move, constantly shooting his bow, tapping his foot and being out in the open. He enjoy making people laugh, seeing a smile on someone's face is one of the best opportunities for him. However, he doesn't go out of his way to make people laugh. He doesn't do it purposefully, he is naturally fun and humorous. He enjoys adventure. Any activity that gets your adrenaline pumping, whether it is riding a motorcycle, skydiving or kayaking down a fierce and rapid current. He is a thrill seeker and is willing to put himself at risk to be able to satisfy his need for danger. Zack is a spoiled brat. Growing up in a family that owns billions, he often got whatever he wanted from his parents. If he wanted a new ipod touch, he would dig into their pockets and buy himself one. If he wanted a corvette, he would go on his knees and beg for one. He gets what he wants, one way or another. If he wants the pretty girl, he'll use his charm, and his money to get her. But often he does not stay with only one girl. A free spirit, he drifts from girl to girl, ones he satisfies his needs, he dumps her and moves on to the next. Zack often speaks without thinking. Living in a life where he can say anything he pleases without getting punished has led him to be a complete smart Alic and he often has more than one cuss stuffed up his sleeve. He doesn't care if his words sting or bite, doesn't care what effect they will have in the future. He is untouchable, so even if he hurts someone, there is nothing they can do about it. Despite that inconsiderate side, Zack is a good friend. He is trust worthy and loyal to his friends. He would never do anything to betray him, no matter the bribe, no matter the threat. He would die for his friends. No matter who they are or what they do. Even if their weird. Hell, Zack doesn't like normal. Unique is different and surprising, and the more surprises that fill up Zack's life, the better. Zack and his bow are inseparable. The thing that freed him from his parents constricting rule, he has had the bow and arrow since he was younger. He has had it modified as he got more skilled, but it is the same bow. He loves it, and depends on it and whenever he is feeling angry or upset or depressed, he shoots it, over, and over again. He never parts with it and nearly sleeps with it, it lays next to him on his bed, his fingers always curled around the bow. He is extremely independent. For the first ten to twelve years of his life, his parents were extremely controlling and tried to manipulate everything he did and said. Once he began to rebel against them, they gave up on him, but he has never forgotten all the times his father tried to shove him in a tuxedo or learn to tap dance.
History: Zack was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. The manor of the Stratton family is like a landmark in Washington, everyone knows of the castle like building, complete with towers, an arch and guards. Zack, for a long time, lived a sheltered life. During his elementary years, he lived in the castle. He had a child's dream life. He hated it. His parents tried to be controlling, tried to control everything he did. He was not allowed to play outside, “hurts the family reputation to have their barbarian son playing about in the mud,” his mother always said. There is one thing that he has always liked. There were two instruments that his parents tried to force upon him to learn. The piano, and the violin. He could never understand the piano, the keys and colors gave his mind a headache every time he tried to play. The violin, however, he fell in love with. As soon as he put it up to his chin and struck the first note, he fell in love with it. Despite the opportunity, however, he still hated it. His parents tried to control his life. They chose his outfits. They chose his friends, which mostly consisted of the snot nosed brats that were the children of governors and foreign presidents. He hated it. He could only watch as children played with each other outside as he drove by in his parents limousine, only watch as two middle school children shared a small kiss. His parents had never even allowed him around another girl, except for Gabrielle, the daughter of a governor. His life began to get worse when he turned 14. It was here that he discovered that the only reason he was allowed to play with Gabrielle was because he and her were going to participate in an arranged marriage. Gabriella was thrilled by the idea, being wed to Zackery Stratton was the dream of every girl in town. For Zack however, it was a nightmare. Gabrielle, however she was nice to look at, was an empty shell, who focused her life entirely on clothes, shoes and the number of facebook friends she had. It was around this time that he found his bow. His family had been invited to the National Professional Archery Competition in New Zealand and he had picked up the bow of the champion. It felt perfect in his hand, the way the bow rested in his palm as he held it. When he brought the string back to his ear, he felt like he had been using it for years, like he was born to be an archer. While the rest of the adults were busy, he took the bow and walked out to the field. A hundred meters away, was the target. He took the bow, drew the string back to his ear and holding it with three fingers, let the arrow fly. Every head turned, at first, anger glinting in their eyes, this boy holding the bow of the World Champion. But as the arrow struck the center of the target, their attitudes changed. Shock! Wonder! Amazement! They crowded around Zack and assaulted him with questions. "How long have you participated in archery?" "Why have you never competed before?" "What kind of arrow do you prefer?" It was only after his parents dragged him out of the house did he realize his mistake. He had, in one motion, changed his family's appearance. Now, they were not focused on his parents, the rich governor and governess. They were now concentrating on this gifted boy. The punishment he received was unbearable. He was locked in his room for a year. His room was big, with a flatscreen tv, xbox 360, a balcony, but it was not enough. He felt suffocated in his room. He then began to devise a way out. On the computer, he learned how to pick locks, and on Christmas night, a night he knew his parents were out drinking and partying, he picked the lock on his door and snuck out. He took his parents Lamborghini and went to the nearest archery shop and used his parents money, and extra, to buy a bow without being questioned. He then waited near his house. Crouched in the shadows. Waiting. Finally, what he was waiting for arrived. His parents in their limousine, drunk and flitty, stumbling out to their mansion. Zack lifted the bow and fired. The arrow pierced through his mothers purse and impaled it into a tree. Shocked, the parents faced their son who stepped out of the shadows. "I want my life back," Zack growled. "I don't want to hurt you, but I will not stand you keeping me here. I want to get out and do things." And he left. He ran away from them and to Camp Half-Blood where he stays. Likes: Zackery likes a lot of things. He enjoys his music, and his friends. Sunlight and parties. He can take every part of the world and turn it into something good, even if it's something that most people frown upon. He has about a hundred holocaust jokes tucked up his sleeve.Dislikes: He dislikes nothing but shadows, his friends being in danger, serious moments and assholes. Fun Facts
