    • Name & PB are negotiable;
    • He is Jamie Collins' and Alex Lin's estranged father, and Cole Lin's uncle. He left without warning/leaving a trace/ever coming back when the twins were 8, which doesn't make much sense, given he was living happily with his witch wife and children in Melbourne;
    • His wife never pursued him for divorce, the implication being she still loves him, and he didn't do it either so he might feel the same way;
    • Anything else is up to you.

    A Melbourne native, Zachary was always jovial and trendy, even socially chameleon-like, and most saw him as the 'cool' sort - his wife certainly did, as she was smitten with him from the moment she saw him back when they were college students (in separate colleges). She quickly dropped everything to be with him, and it wasn't long after that the two brought Jamie and Alexa to the world. Each parent was closer to a specific child - Tabitha was closer to Jamie for he presented every quality in the book to become a wizard, and Zachary identified more with his daughter whom turned out to be a Squib. He put her in gymnastics and spent a lot of time with her in general, teaching her the basics of drawing at an early age and becoming the most important person in her life.

    At a certain point in his life, when his little twins were 8, he was offered the opportunity for a big cartooning job a little ways away from their house in Melbourne; he took it, seeing it as a path for stable wealth and guaranteeing his children a future. What he didn't expect was for the work to turn out to be a convoluted scam when he got there, and it eventually crashed and burned a few months in, and along with it went all his investments (both monetary and in terms of time). Feeling like an idiot for falling for such an obvious scheme, he felt like he had no right or courage to face his wife after the whole thing. Sending her a note not to look for him, he went along with his life, starting from scratch and building himself back up from nothing.

    Many years have passed. He's effectively still married, and has gotten back to his feet. Recently, he and a business partner decided to open a minor comic book publishing company in Melbourne. He hadn't realized he was back home until the day he happened to have to drive past what was his household once upon a time; and soon after, he found out his family didn't live there anymore. Perhaps it was about time he tried to redeem some of his past wrongs...

    • Given that the house he once lived in is very obviously no longer occupied by his family, it's time he starts looking for his family. Perhaps he could return to Narragyambie, where he knows the former Lin household is located - not only was it the main hub of the family before him and Tabitha got married, but her brother lives in front of that same house.
       
    • Another avenue is to start getting in touch with the magic world again. His son turned out to be the immensely popular Seeker to the Australian National Quidditch Team, and he's paraded about as a bad boy ladies man for the sake of selling merchandise. It's doubtful that Zachary would be too pleased with this.
       
    • Yet another possible way is to accidentally run into a creator named 'Alex Lin' while searching for new talent to recruit online. While he named his daughter 'Alexa Collins', it'd be too much of a coincidence to have a girl with that name in that specific industry - in that location, no less, and with his wife's maiden name to boot. Could it be his daughter followed in his footsteps?
       
    • Alternatively, he can run into either child over at The Tipsy Mozzie and likely start a bar fight.
       
    • Does he fully want his life back, or does he just want to keep tabs on the life he abandoned out of weakness?
