Overall Zeke is a calm person, he hardly gets upset without a good reason, and prefers to talk his way out of situations than to engage in a fight, unless it's strictly necessary, otherwise he prefers to avoid it. In general, he’s often portrayed as ‘uninterested’ or arrogant, simply because he is quiet, he prefers to listen and observe others while they talk than engaging in the conversation. Those who know Zeke, know he’s far more interactive and social one-on-one or even small groups than he is in large group. Despite preferring smaller groups, Zeke is rather sociable and friendly, only showing a more distant demeanor when he doesn’t feel comfortable.
He's very family oriented, meaning that his family is above everything and everyone else, especially his younger sister.
At first glance, Zeke looks a bit too serious, but it couldn’t be further from the truth, eventually enjoying playing a few harmless pranks on his family members, from enchanted flippers to flying blankets chasing and wrapping someone until a safe word is mentioned. With strangers, he’s friendly, but not the sociable type unless someone engages first in a conversation. Aside his friendliness, he judges people, a lot, mostly based on his appearance and it does take a while for him to see others beyond that, which clouds his impression of people.
Zeke often ignores the big picture, having a tendency for short term compensations rather than long term and whenever he makes a mistake he refuses to learn, needing to make the same mistake a few times. Being part Veela hasn't been easy for Zeke, while relationships aren't anything new to him he prefers to stay away, with his heritage sometimes trying to get in the way of things going smoothly.
Zeke is around 180cm, with short brown hair. Whenever the hair starts to get too long, he is known to cut it himself, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, but he also doesn't bother fixing it, unless his younger sister is around, who seems to know what she's doing, unlike him. He has blue eyes with a slightly oval face. His looks ate aided by his veela-heritage.
He is slightly muscular, and having veela heritage his strength is slightly above normal for someone like him, despite not training for it.
He prefers to wear casual and comfortable clothes, but always trying to dress appropriately for the occasion. Being someone who values appearance and someone who judges others based on that, he likes to create a good first impression, obviously his natural charm helps in many occasions.
Ezekiel is the third Hammond child, having two older sisters and a younger sister with who he’s closer too, despite liking then all, the closeness in age and being closer than Sam, he’s a bit more overprotective of her than he is with his other sisters.
When he was eight, his eldest sister Keira left the house, while him and Keira weren’t as close as him and his youngest sibling, he didn’t want her to leave, sadly he had no vote in the matter and his sister ended up leaving anyway.
As a young boy Zeke was slightly jealous of his younger sister, Sam, she hogged all the attention leaving the other Hammond children feeling neglected, however with time, understanding that his sister problem couldn’t be easy. However, even if he did his best to understand his sister, he couldn’t stop feeling a bit jealous, a feeling that disappeared later in life.
He never had any ups and down in his life, at least nothing that had marked him. He enrolled in Tallygarunga when he turned eleven, being sorted into the Bourke house. He was sure they had made a mistake, he was everything but a Bourke, a Flinders? Perhaps, but not a Bourke. During his years in Tally he kept complaining about the mistake, but ultimately didn’t matter, all that did was the education.
During his time in Tally, Zeke had a few relationships, all ended badly. Due to his heritage a simple conversation could turn into a misunderstanding, that later would turn into an argument and then to a break-up. No matter what he did or say, the outcome was always the same, with time chose it would be best to stay away from relationships that required romantic feelings.
Now with nineteen, Zeke has been studying in VMU, studying something he doesn’t even know he likes, to do something he’s not sure it’s the right path for him, but he’s trying.
