Zarana is a professional assassin who gains access to her victims through skillful acting and masterful use of makeup and disguise. While her brother Zartan concentrates on the purely physical aspects of disguise, Zarana works from the method-actor's point of view: to completely become the object of her impersonation–to think, feel, and react like another person. She is an expert in small arms, explosives, and edged weapons. Like her two brothers, she also has the ability to change skin color.
"Zarana could have had a brilliant career on the professional stage if the evil in her nature hadn't been so strong. She throws tantrums, cuts ahead on lines, and never leaves a tip. She posed as an oral hygienist for six months on one assignment armed only with a reel of specially coated dental floss to incapacitate her unwitting victims. She escaped, dressed as a granny lady hobbling on a walker, right past the cops and into a cab. The cabbie remembered her . . . she didn't leave a tip."
