!!Yulyn
--> Played by Daniel Clark

Howlyn's estranged son, the only example of a "good" Atavus we see.

!!!Tropes:

* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: Every other Atavus seems to be a bestial monster, who seeks to feed on humans and dominate the others. Yulyn is calm and peaceful, with a respect for other life. It's pretty clear that this is his late mother's influence, and Howlyn is pretty mad that his son didn't turn out like him.
* VegetarianVampire: Just like his late mother, Yulyn refuses to feed on humans. It's not clear how he stays alive.


* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Seemingly happens in the Season 4 finale; is brought back for an episode in Season 5, and is killed off-screen shortly after the episode fades out.
* GenderBender: In Season 5, when he becomes a female Atavus, since Taelons are sexless (but called "he" for ease of reference) but played by female actors.
* Greed: Zo'or eventually develops a sense of greed for straight-up wealth after dealing with humans involved in political and economic power-play for years. His need is so bad that he starts hoarding gold on the mothership, and hallucinates that it's been stolen when he checks on it.

actors. The first thing Zo'or does is have sex with a male human before feeding on him.

*NoDelaysForTheWicked: Howlyn and the Atavus move with speed and efficiency even beyond that given them by their skills and ruthlessness, encircling the heroes in record time, even after their infiltration has been wholly exposed. It verges on VillainSue territory at times. In one instance, a spanking brand-new top-secret factory meant to produce a vaccine/cure for Atavus infectious takeovers has, just as Renee arrives, already been nearly wholly infiltrated by enslaved hybrids and repurposed to make a substance to spread and worsen the infiltration. The logistics rival those of Columbia in Bioshock Infinite.


* StrawmanHasAPoint: She becomes extremely distrustful of alien life as a concept. Ra'jel calls her out on this and Renee answers, correctly, that every alien government or force yet encountered by humans has had malevolent intent, barring a few dissenting individuals. Ra'jel still convinces her that she shouldn't shy away from further first contact with other life.

* HandBlast: Being part-Kimera, his palms have the Shaqarava organ, which allows him, when the plot demands it to emit energy from it.

* BroughtDownToNormal: In an episode of Season 4, Sandoval's CVI breaks down and must be removed; Zo'or teases that this means he'll have to give up his Skrill and use a lowly energy pistol. It turns out later that the entire thing is a ploy [[GenreSavvy in case the situation he's walking into is a trap]] so he can hide his Skrill and then use it to escape after his pistol is confiscated. In Season 5, this happens for real after the the nuclear strike against the Taelon mothership severely injures Sandoval and kills his Skrill.

* GenreSavvy: When Sandoval's wife calls him out of the blue three years after her apparent death, he immediately suspects a Jaridian trick, as Jaridian probes can masquerade as a human. It turns out it really ''is'' his wife, which is something the viewer knows. What neither he nor the viewer knows is that she's come out of hiding to pull a con job on him.

Added DiffLines:

** DragonWithAnAgenda: Not that he's particularly loyal to either. He spends much of his time under Zo'or trying to undermine the Taelon agenda from the inside.





to:

\n\n* TheUnfettered: Whatever he's set his mind to doing, he is not going to let anything like morality or loyalty get in his way. Wipe his own memory, murder, kidnapping, arranging a rape or two? He's not losing any sleep over it so long as the goal is accomplished.




Like Sandoval, Zo'or appears in all five seasons, but has only a small roll in Season 1 and a single episode in Season 5.
