Introducing himself as "the traditional items merchant that's necessary in every video game", Zacharie is a mysterious man in a mask that serves as a items vendor, conversation partner, and later as a guide for The Batter in his quest. Unnervingly intelligent and aware at times, Zacharie is constantly alluded to throughout the story; it is almost certain that the story of The Toad King is referring to him, and it is also heavily implied that he is the owner of the amusement park in Zone 2. He also has some sort of relationship with Sugar, shown to care about her safety; what exactly this relationship is remains, like most of the details of his life, a total mystery. After all, where does it matter where the merchant gets their items or who they care for when it is only just a game to be played?

Note: Because of Zacharie's mysterious and highly meta nature as a character, he is even harder to quantify than most OFF characters.
