Zaki's real name Aoi Himezaki, she's a student at Seijyun High. She was asked by Akira Kazama and Yurika to help investigate the strange behavior of Akira's brother, Daigo. She is shown to be highly confrontational, showing anger at an attack by Batsu Ichimonji and snapping at the teacher trio of Hideo, Kyoko and Hayato when the girls are questioned about the confrontation, but is also seen as forgiving when Yurika reveals herself to be working for Kurow Kirishima, the person who brainwashed Daigo, Zaki is at first reluctant to forgive her, but changes her mind when Akira forgives Yurika anyway.

Goth Girl Zaki's is badass. Ha ha ha. She's awesome. Her design is unapologetically "Goth / Industrial" (with a touch of class) - which I happen to be a fan of (IRL). Japanese fashion and goth go hand and hand. Zaki looks great. Her moveset is ridiculous... mostly "cool stuff" you'd usually see from the likes of Iori Yagami or Kyo Kusanagi, but with a female touch. I think one of the coolest parts about Zaki is that she's not anything close to an "ultra sexualized" female design (something all too familiar in most video games). Nope, Zaki isn't big on the "sex appeal" thing... (but you know she works out because look at those leg muscles). (Edayan knows how to draw leg muscles.) Basically, Zaki doesn't give a shit about you thinking she's sexy. She's goth. She gets right down to business and kicks ass and looks awesome doing it. I can respect that. She's also mature enough to have friends and work well with others. (It's part of her design!)  :)

Zaki's is probably one of the most underrated / overlooked characters from Rival Schools, but she's a badass character design and very effective in the series. If there ever was a Rival Schools 3, you'd most definitely see Zaki in attendance. ;>)
