Zelgadis Graywords, Zel for
short, is a character from the Japanese anime TV Series, Slayers. The first
several episodes of this series have been released in the US by Software
Sculptors, who assure us that they're bringing out the rest of the first season
In fact, there are three
series in all so far: Slayers, Slayers Next, and Slayers Try. Slayers Try
finished its Japanese run recently, and the fourth series should be starting up in the fall.
There's also an OVA series and
several movies, but these don't have Zelgadis in them. Instead, they feature the
scantily-clad Naga. Hmmmmph.
Zelgadis is a powerful
shamanist sorcerer who was transformed into a chimera by his
grandfather/great-grandfather, Rezo the Red Priest. He's rather shy about his
looks, and prefers to travel in concealing clothing and avoiding large cities.
He can, and will, defend himself fairly well: he's a decent swordsman and
cannot be cut by conventional swords himself, due to his rock-like skin.
Although he started out as an
adversary, Zel has become a valuable member of the Slayers team, which is led
by the outspoken Lina Inverse. Unfortunately, this team also includes Amelia, a
squeaky little brat with a major crush on our Zel. You won't find many pictures
of Amelia here for that very reason. The only reason I have any pictures of her
at all is because I couldn't crop her out without slicing off a bit of Zel.
This site focuses primarily on
graphics, for there are many other sites which can provide information more
intelligently than I'm capable of. If any of these pictures interest you and
get you to watch the series, I've done my job!
I will warn you, though, that
the picture pages all feature thumbnails and can take forever to load. They're
all my personal pics, though, not just some pile of recycled .jpgs leeched off
OK, so I stole ONE.
Anyway, you know the
drill...check out the pics, visit the sites on my links page, and if you have
any questions feel free to write me at
