Zessica is a confident, cool and slightly arrogant girl. In the first episode, Zessica states that unification with girls is boring and wants to try it with boys, resulting in MIX and Suomi scolding and lecturing her on how "impure" that would be. She's interested in boys, as she alongside the rest of the female student body has been forbidden to interact with them. Regardless of the rules of not having romantic relationship with male students, she still pursues Amata and constantly flirts with him. She sometimes can be mean, and there's moments where she feels jealousy of Mikono, but nevertheless she supports everyone in battle and stays cool-headed and in control, at some point she even tries to advise Mikono into showing more skin to attract Amata's attention.
Because of her powers, she wears skimpy clothing and isn't afraid to show her body, taking pleasure in teasing Amata by jumping onto him or rubbing her breasts onto him. She also does this to tease Mikono, knowing that it makes her jealous, as she challenges her to do something or else she'll try to take Amata for herself. However, Amata never reciprocates the flirting and instead tries to get her off him or ignores her in favor of Mikono. She tries to come off as laid-back and tomboyish, but in reality she cares a lot about her image.
Despite this, Zessica later grows to genuinely care for Amata, helping him multiple times and, at one point, even sacrificing herself for his sake. She secretly wishes that Kagura would take Mikono away so that she can have a chance with Amata, and tries to disuade Amata from going after him when she's kidnapped. When it's believed that Kagura and Mikono are Apollon and Silvie, she worries that Amata won't be able to take it and that Mikono will inevitably hurt him, as she and Kagura are supposedly destined to be together. She grows uneasy about the rumors that Amata and Mikono are destined to be together, as she develops feelings for him and wishes to be with him.
After confessing her feelings to Amata, he rejects her, leaving Zessica heartbroken and insecure. Due to this, she starts imitating Mikono in a last effort to gain Amata's attention, however it doesn't work. From this point on she constantly compares herself to Mikono, as her confidence and pride are deeply hurt. Mykage takes advantage of this and, as her negative feelings dwell inside her, he takes possession of her and torments her as her captor. When she encounters Kagura in the last episode, she asks her to kill her as she has lost all the will to live.
She has a fear of supernatural things, like ghosts, but tries to hide it because it embarrasses her. Like the rest of the female student boy, she's creeped out by Kagura's aggressiveness.
Little is known about Zessica before she arrived to Neo-DEAVA. One of the drama CD's states that she was bullied by other human children because of her powers.
She is very popular in Neo-Deava, along with MIX and Sazanka. She's admired by other girls for her strength in battle and because she was one of the first girls to make union with a boy. She, along with Sazanka and MIX are part of school's choir. MIX sometimes scolds her over her outfit, saying that she's showing too much, though Zessica usually ignores her.
Powers and Abilities
Zessica's element power is Distortion (捻れの力 Nejire no Chikara), which allows her to warp structure of objects and project bolts of kinetic force. She additionally possesses a secondary element power that lets her extend extra-sensory perception through her exposed skin. In one episode, she saw a vision of Kagura and Mikono in her mirror, but it is unknown whether this is actually a manifestation of latent element power or one of Mykage's many tricks. She's a very capable pilot, staying cool-headed in the most dire situations, and even manages to defeat Jin in battle. Zessica belongs to the school choir, showing that she's capable of singing as well.
Zessica begins to develop feelings for Amata as the series progresses. Initially, she teases Amata merely for her own amusement as she enjoys his and Mikono's reactions, but as her feelings deepen her demeanor becomes increasingly melancholic as she realizes that Amata is too in love with Mikono to return her feelings. Eventually, she becomes so jealous of Amata and Mikono's relationship that her telekinesis begins to randomly distort nearby objects. As the series progresses, her teasing of Amata decreases and instead she spends more time worrying about his well-being, and even turns shy around him on occasion.
Zessica is also torn by the vision of Mikono and a winged Kagura embracing one another. She believes that Mikono will choose Kagura, which would break Amata's heart. This pushes her to love Amata more, as she desires for him not to ever be lonely. She constantly tries to look out for him and help him in any way she can, going as far as sacrificing herself to save him when he's near certain death. Unfortunately, Amata never reciprocates her feelings, but thanks her anyways.
Although they have a few misunderstanding regarding Amata, Zessica and Mikono get along. When Mikono refuses to take her relationship with Amata further, Zessica teases her and tries to convince her to be more like herself (that is, wear skimpy outfits) to attract Amata. After Amata rejects her, Zessica grows insecure and jealous, trying to imitate Mikono in a desperate attempt to gain Amata's attention, wondering what does Mikono has that she herself is lacking.
When Kagura's element powers awaken, Zessica's ESP lets her see a vision of Mikono and a winged Kagura embracing one another, making her believe that Mikono will choose Kagura, which would break Amata's heart. It's unknown whether this is product of her powers or another fabrication of Mykage. She secretly wishes Kagura would take Mikono away so she could have Amata for herself, and she admits to being relieved when she heard that Kagura and Mikono are destined for each other, because it'd meant that she could have a chance at being with Amata. She doesn't worry about Mikono when Kagura kidnaps her because she understands that he won't harm her.
