Zero was an accident, a child born out of wedlock and unwanted by his mother. Thus named Zero, to represent the fact and always remind him that he meant “nothing” to her. On a world where everyone seemed to be connected to everyone else, he was ostracized by kids his own age growing up because of that fact. Never once in public did his mother ever show him any form of affection, she'd care because that's what was expected of her. But that's how life went on Nepleslia, the weakest or perceived weakest was the one who was left out.
He grew up never knowing the love of a mother, everytime he tried to be affectionate to her or wanted some from her…she'd whack him one, even in public. Whenever he got hurt in a fight at school or on the street; she only bandaged it up but didn't put any love into it. He'd grow up hating her after a while, being made painfully aware that she didn't want Zero. When Zero was 8 years old, he'd had enough of her and when she was asleep one night, he took a handgun she kept around the house and stuck it under her chin and pulled the trigger, blowing her brains out.
After that he took a few things, including all forms of money he could find. Once he left the house, he'd light it on fire and wrecked the place to make it look like a burglary gone bad. When the place was burning, Zero'd run off into the night in Funky City where he'd live on his own using the money he took. But on a frosty cold night, Zero would be found by a mob of nepleslians out looking for slaves to sell on the blackmarket.
Not wanting to be cold anymore, Zero put up little resistance but would later come to realize how bad an idea that was. Because the neko he'd be sold to would be largely the same except she at least showed some form of compassion…when he didn't piss her off. Zero would leave Nepleslia and journey to Yamatai where he'd live and learned through example and what little education he'd get. When he was 16 though, she'd grow tired of Zero's attitude of apathy and made him join the military. Telling him that his attitude would be quickly corrected there and she was right; it got enhanced and directed.
Zero would grow to absolutely hate Yamatai though, growing sick of the perfection it represented, his peers, most of them neko, treated him like he was a lesser being because of being Nepleslian, his opportunities to advance were always given to others. Despite feeling empty inside and wanting to just die, he didn't want to give these bitches the satisfaction of doing that; so instead he set off to shove it in their faces by improving his skills.
When the Species Restriction Act was passed, he'd bite the bullet; having no love for his own race and upgraded to Yamataian. Then when UOC broke off to form its own factional coalition; he'd switch again to Jiyuuian or was classified as one since they were the same species. Adjusting to the Peacekeeper mentality was a difficult switch for someone who largely didn't care about the plight of other people (but was learning through being around people that didn't ostracize him)
