Zhaan is Delvian, species known for their religiousness. She is very sensual and likes to meditate in the nude. Zhaan took her religion very seriously, and regularly invoked her goddess’s support with prayers for strength, protection, mercy, and good fortune for Moya and the crew. She was tolerant of and curious about others’ beliefs and, with the exception of the Peacekeepers, usually had no prejudices against other species. Her religion stressed peace and diplomacy, but she was capable of defending herself against physical attack when pushed. As she said on one such occasion she is soft, not weak.
