- This article is about the second Caretaker of The Great Machine. For the first Caretaker of The Great Machine, see: Zathras
"Zathras warn Zathras, but Zathras never listen to Zathras."
- – Zathras
- "Zathras II" is used here as a descriptor. This individual was the second of the Zathras family to be seen, and his name differs from his more notable brother's only by a small difference in pronunciation.
- Like his brother, he is eccentric and will talk a lot. He claims that he talks to everything: walls, ceilings and most commonly the dirt, saying that they have a lot in common, "Dirt is used to everyone walking on it, just like Zathras. But we come to like it, it is our role, it is our destiny in the universe."
- He eats bugs. "Zathras likes insects, not so good for conversation, but much protein for diet."
