Zeus was recruited from battle. Hatch guilted him into service
by telling him that he'd killed his entire family by electrocuting them in a swimming pool. This was a lie, but young Zeus was so horrified he believed Hatch. However, in The Prisoner of Cell 25, Taylor Ridley is able to erase the false memory. Zeus helps bring down the Peruvian base in South America which holds a large bowl full of electric rats, in Rise of the Elgen. An act of bravery on his part however, was when the Rat Bowl was becoming chaotic and the only way to get it to stop was to use water to put out the rats electricity. Michael Vey was unable to, for fear of the water coming down and hurting Zeus., however, Zeus himself shot electricity at the pipes, endangering himself to save the others. Jack courageously leapt to his rescue, saving him. However, in Battle of the Ampere after being captured by Peruvian army and the Elgen he decided he'd had enough. After escaping the Puerto Maldonado compound (and destroying it) Zeus leaves the Electroclan to take refuge with The Voice, along with Abi, Ian, and Tessa. However, the four feel guilty for leaving their friends to destroy the E.S Ampere, or came to their senses because at the very last moment when the other half of the Electroclan are about to be turned to dust, Zeus and the others appear to help. Thus, the destruction of the ship was made possible with everyone's lives intact.
