"No one ever listens to Zathras. "Quite mad," they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh, yes."
- – Zathras
Although Zathras mostly lived on Epsilon III, helping Draal take care of the Great Machine, the actual homeworld of Zathras' species (along with their own race name) was never revealed.
Though he initially appears as a silly and somewhat clumsy creature, Zathras was very dedicated and loyal to the cause as well as wise and technically proficient. His most repeated phrase is "no one listens to Zathras".
He is depicted as a bit of a simpleton and will tend to talk a lot.
