Zippers Reference Page by GingaAkam Zippers Reference Page by GingaAkam
Finally took the time to make a reference page for Zippy. LOL the zipper location diagram looks like something from Tron.

This explains Zippers' relation to the number 42 more in depth. While it is true the original inspiration for using the number is that it's my favorite number and that in Japanese 4 can be said as "Shi" and 2 can be said as "Ni", and "Shini" translating to "die." However, the total number of showing zippers is also 42 (he has a few under his skin.) He tries to get 42 zippers on his victims to make them pretty like him. But they end up dieing before or shortly after due to blood loss; because Zippers can be kind of impatient.

His fountain pen connects to his arm under the zipper to get blood.

For his personality and appearance description I'll just put what I put on that other picture:

All of his skin is gone and is replaced with a tough black leather, it is held onto his body by stitches and zippers. He has kind of a knapsack belt thingy on. It contains a bunch of equipment like sewing stuff, zippers, thread, a few anesthetic like drugs, and several cutting tools (like scalpesl and scissors.) He's not very tall; maybe a little shorter than Kai is (I don't know the measurements and stuff for tall and short :I)

What he does; he is obsessed with zippers, and likes to make people look like he does; as in, cutting and sewing zippers all over them. He's always wanted to complete someone so that they have as many zippers as he does, but they usually die before he gets close (dry blood and flesh sticks up the zippers ya know, and then they bleed out and Zippy is like 'aww not again!')

All seriousness aside; his personality for not serious stories. He's very playful and likes to make new friends; but he does not understand the concept of personal space, sarcasm, or expressions. He also isn't afraid to speak his mind, so he gets in trouble with the others a lot. And he has a hard time keeping secrets.


I want to make more reference pictures like this for all my OCs, just to make things easy.

I'm not sure if he's cute, scary, evil, or what... Hmm... I note the word 'anesthetic' in there... Are said victims awake?

Sometimes they're awake, much of the time he gets them when they're sleeping but most of the time they wake up in the middle of the process.

Where does the pen go when he's not using it? Does it just sit in his arm?

yeah pretty much XD well, when he plans on using it. If he doesn't think he'd use it in a while then the tube is detachable and they go inside his belt.

He'd probably say it tickles or something XD and then zip it back up because his flesh might get something in it

"42" sort of reminds me of Soul Eater, with how they talk to Lord Death by writing "42-42-564" on a mirror. .
