It's gone! My one chance for re-election is gone!
Zao, seeing the Shuigang forces flee with the Kingdom Stone

Mayor Zao is the ambitious and mischievous ruler of Shang Mu.


Freedom PlanetEdit

Facing an Energy Crisis Edit

With the growth of Shang Mu, the city soon faced an energy crisis, and Zao felt that he had to take action the for the sake of his city and to better his chances for re-election. He decided that desperate times call for desperate measures and had gone to the extreme and hiring the Red Scarves to steal the Kingdom Stone.

Theft of the Kingdom Stone Edit

Torque knew of this plan, and upon relaying it to Lilac and Carol, they set out to warn Shang Tu about the impending attack. However, General Gong and Neera Li dismiss this, saying that nothing is wrong. Unfortunately, Torque is proven correct as one of Zao's Trucks broke through one of the temples. Despite the setback of Lilac and Carol disabling the truck, Zao had enlisted the help of Spade, who was successfully able to steal the Kingdom Stone for him.

Negotiations in Shang Mu Edit

However, the next day Lord Brevon had commanded a brainwashed Prince Dail to send his troops to steal the Kingdom Stone from Zao, which was successful. Seeing as Lilac and her friends had destroyed Serpentine's Robo Panther, he invited them to a royal feast and to discuss the Kingdom Stone. Eventually, he was convinced to let them negotiate with Shuigang for the Kingdom Stone. He sent the team with his last airship to Shuigang. However, Dail attacks the airship with his Sky Battalion, and despite being repelled, the airship suffered too much damage, and fell out of the sky.

The Dragon's Blessing Edit

Angrily, Zao prepares to attack Shuigang, but is stopped in the Snowfields by a Shang Tu army led by General Gong, along with Carol, Milla, and Torque. Before they start talking, Milla helps Zao by digging up some snow under him, giving him a +5 HEIGHT. Then, Zao and Gong argue about who gets the Kingdom Stone's power until they are interrupted by a loud roar. Suddenly, a dragon flies in, prompting everyone to kneel before the ancient beast. After being ordered to work together, the two armies unite to stop Brevon from stealing the Kingdom Stone.

Assault on the Dreadnought Edit

The group gathers around a campfire outside recently built tent to form a plan of attack on the Dreadnought. Zao asks how there going to recover the Kingdom Stone, Torque suggested using one of his hacking devices to disable the Dreadnought's power. With that ,the two armies began to cross the Snowfields to the Dreadnought. As Lilac rides the Holodragon, Zao provides Carol, Milla and Torque with three of his tanks, which they use to lead the charge against Brevon's Army. Later on, as Lilac and her friends board the Dreadnought to face Lord Brevon, Zao and Gong lead their armies to liberate Shuigang from Brevon's Army, eventually freeing the city from the Warlord's grip.

A New Beginning Edit

Brevon is defeated, but the Kingdom Stone was destroyed along with the doomed Dreadnought. However, it wasn't destroyed, the Stone transformed into a Crystalline Vortex that begun to spread it's unlimited energy across Avalice. Zao invites the girls, Torque, Gong and Neera to a royal feast in celebration of their victory over Brevon and the end of the war. He's also relieved that the energy crisis in Shang Mu was averted and his chances for re-election were likely increased.


Zao is able to emphasize certain sentences that he says by adding a +5 based on what he says, then display it in flashing letters over his head. This is shown when he congratulates the team gloriously after the defeat of the Robopanther, with a +5 GLORY appearing over his head briefly.

Zao is also likely to be capable of military leadership, leading soldiers to attack Shuigang and the fact that his city is full of hazardous robots.


Trivia Edit

  • Mayor Zao's hat has the simplified Chinese character '长' (zhǎng) on it, meaning 'chief' or 'head'.
