So I was thinking about melee builds for Zer0 the other night, when I noticed something. Zer0 often speaks in haiku, correct? He also prefers to use a single sword, much similar to the samurai of feudal Japan, and holds his honor in high regard. Now bounce that over to Battleborn (mixing universes I know) and what do you get? The Jennerit.
So my theory for this is that Zer0 is an early form of Jennerit. We never see his face, so we don’t know about his actual physical appearance, but there are a heck of a lot of similarities.
Zer0 and The Jennerit both:
- Have only three fingers and a thumb on each hand
- Prefer melee combat
- Have “lifesteal” effects
- Have a culture very similar to that of feudal Japan
- Have some form of stealth (Deande)
- Use energy weapons (Rath)
Even the design of their armour is similar. Look at the back of Rath’s headgear:
And then Zer0’s:
Remove the faceplate, and it’s almost identical. Thoughts?
