Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines Wiki

Zygaena is a character in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. He is a hengeyōkai, a type of shape shifting Japanese demon.


Some indeterminate time prior to the game's events, Zygaena had killed Yukie's master, prompting her to avenge him. Zygaena later traveled to Los Angeles, where he would then meet his demise at the hands of Yukie, and the fledgling. He also seemed to respect Ming Xiao, as he announced his presence in her city.


As a hengeyōkai, Zygaena is a very powerful and dangerous being, having the ability to change his shape at will. He can turn into a bipedal hammerhead shark, thus capable of inflicting large amounts of damage.
