Role in the Series
Zephyr first appears in "Flight of the Jaquins" when Migs, Luna, and Skylar arrive with Princess Elena. Zephyr expresses annoyance with the three Jaquins for being late and joy for seeing Elena again. He tells Elena and Avalor's Jaquin Clan that, for centuries, they have been the Guardians of Avalor and protected the Kingdom from the Dark Side of Enchantment such as sea monsters and Troyo. However, they couldn't stop Shuriki from taking over forty-one years before. When the time comes to pick a new Navegarra, he selects Skylar. The Clan protests, but Elena defends Skylar. Elena's speech makes Zephyr stand by his choice.
Zephyr appears again in "Realm of the Jaquins", overlooking the test for Nico and the other cadets to become Guardians of Avalor that he organized with Mateo. Though Nico and the other cadets pass the first test, Nico fails the second one thanks to interference from Victor Delgado, causing Zephyr to reluctantly send Nico back to Vallaestrella in shame. Later, he learns that Marimonda has escaped Vallaestrella and is attempting to take over Avalor. He and the Jaquin Clan try to stop her, but are unsuccessful. However, once Elena returns with Skylar, Nico, and King Verago, they are able to buy Elena time to set up her trap to imprison Marimonda again and return her to Vallaestrella. Afterwards, Zephyr joins in the celebration as Nico is made a full Guardian of Avalor by Verago. However, he is unaware of the Delgados working for Shuriki and attempting to conquer Avalor again.
