- — Zeal
Major "Zeal" is a mercenary pilot. He flies a Su-47 Berkut. He was born Curtis Bowman and flew with the United States Air Force with the callsign Scorch. He was an All-American quarterback. He was considered the best. On a mission to escort a bomber flying one of Frank Ostreger's experimental planes, his plane malfunctioned and he hit the side of a mountain. Everyone thought he was dead. Later he surfaced as Zeal and took only contracts which felt right to him, and he only used his guns. One time he flew against his brother Arrow and spared him. Later, he made another pass against Arrow when he was flying with H.A.W.X. squadron but said he was out of ammo.
He reflected on an old movie when he thought about who he had become. Failure was inconceivable to him, and believed attachments were a weakness. He had several passports, and several identities.
When Arrow flew alone against Rainmaker and DDI, Zeal joined him and said it was because everyone needed a wingman. They discovered a weakness in the hidden base and destroyed it. Rainmaker escaped and Zeal and Arrow pursued him and were almost shot down by the Firestorm satellite. Zeal tricked Rainmaker into the path of the beam and he was destroyed.
Later, Zeal flew against a squadron which worked for his former employers (Russian oligarchies) and shot most of them down, including Twister.
Zeal's Personal Bio
His fight with Twister takes place after the end credits scene. His last dialogue breaks the fourth wall.
