With a fierce gaze and striking facial tattoos, Zova is both a charismatic and unnerving presence in the party. She is an oracle by training but her magical abilities are heavily influenced by a hedge witch she briefly traveled with during her journey from Varisia's Storval Plateau to Erivale.

Her upbringing in the Shoanti Shriikirri-Quah (Hawk Clan) grants her a mostly pacifist outlook with a savage protective streak, which can cause her temper to flare mercilessly. Having found solace in the company of animals her whole life, she bonded with a tiny compsognathus familiar, Tethys, at age 16.

When necessary, she wields a longspear and buckler to defend against nearby foes but she prefers to stay just out of reach, using her voice to bring enemies to their knees. Knowledge of poisons, learned at the knee of her Vishkanya grandmother, gives her deadly effect with a blowgun. She also ruthlessly swings a whistling Shoanti bola.
