!!Zanna

A "magical matchmaker" who takes it upon himself to pair up everyone in Heartsville with the help of his magic wand and bird friend Cindy.



** {{Adorkable}}: He doggedly pursues anyone who he thinks needs to be paired up, all to make sure they're not lonely. Plus, his best friends are his [[AnimateInanimateObject magic wand]] and a bird that flies in his window. He's basically a Disney Princess, complete with the idealistic personality and animal sidekick.

** AmbiguousGender: Similarly to [[Theatre/RENT Angel,]] the ambiguity comes from not definitively knowing what Zanna's gender identity is. If the line "I'm man, woman, gay, straight, all things in between/ I leave no one out" from "Someday You Might Love Me" is any indication, Zanna appears to be either genderfluid, bigender, or something existing both within and outside of the gender and sexuality spectrums. At any rate, he's likely not cisgender or solely monosexual.

** AmbiguouslyBi: See [[AmbiguousGender Ambiguous Gender]] above for details.

** AmbiguousDisorder: Itís subtle, but his [[ChronicHeroSyndrome Chronic Hero Syndrome]] veers into [[NoSocialSkills No Social Skills]] territory, he relates to the world using [[WideEyedIdealist fairytale logic,]] and heís more comfortable with his [[AnimateInanimateObject wand]] and [[FriendtoallLivingThings a bird called]] [[AnimalCompanion Cindy]] than with his human friends at school, and considers them his best friends, even over [[TheDependableOne Tank]].

** BreaktheCutie: Starts breaking around the time [[spoiler: Kate and Steve are outed and rejected by the entire town]] and breaks completely once [[spoiler: his newly-heterosexual friends ostracize him]] and [[spoiler: his wand is snapped in half.]]

** [[BreaktheHaughty Break the Haughty]]: At the beginning of the musical, Zanna believes himself to be the sole reason anyone falls in love ("if I stopped for just one day, how would life go on?") but soon comes to realize otherwise.

** [[UnwantedAssistance Unwanted Assistance]]/[[ChronicHeroSyndrome Chronic Hero Syndrome]]: Canít seem to resist helping people with their love lives, even when they donít ask for it and/or actively tell him not to.


** [[TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes The Cobblerís Children Have No Shoes]]: Zanna is so focused on making other people happy and finding matches for them that he completely ignores his own love life. It comes back to bite him when heís trying to repress his feelings for Steve [[LoveTriangle (knowing that heís already dating Mike)]] and his wand, whose job it is to alert Zanna to people in love, starts [[WeaponWieldsYou zapping him]] to get him to act on his feelings.

** [[DidNotGetTheGirl Did Not Get the Guy]]: He doesn't end up with [[spoiler:Steve]] in the end, but with [[spoiler:Tank]].

** FriendtoallLivingThings: Is best friends with [[BluebirdofHappiness Cindy]], and an incredibly generous and kindhearted person, often [[UnwantedAssistance to a fault.]]

** [[HeroicBSOD Heroic BSOD]]: After [[spoiler: his friends reject him and his wand is snapped,]] which comes with a [[HeroicBSOD Heroic BSOD Song]].

** HeroicSacrifice: Desperate to make everything better after [[spoiler: Kate and Steve are outed]], Zanna finds a spell that will [[spoiler: ďmake the world safe for heterosexuals,Ē at the cost of his magical power.]] See IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy below.

** [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy I Want My Beloved To Be Happy]]: Seeing how devastated Kate and [[MatchmakerCrush Steve]] are when [[spoiler: Everyone rejects them after they accidentally kiss at Mike's chess tournament]], Zanna casts a spell that [[spoiler: permanently flips their world into ours, making heterosexuality the norm and costing Zanna his magical powers and his two best friends in the world]].

** MagicalQueer: Literally!

** MagicWand: Zanna has one that can tell him if there's someone around that he needs to focus his matchmaking skills on. Itís also [[AnimateInanimateObject sentient]] (and if Zannaís reactions are anything to go by, pretty [[SnarkyInanimateObject sarcastic]]), although it only speaks in Tinkerbell-esque chimes. It can also zap Zanna when he doesnít pay attention to it, like when heís trying to ignore his feelings for Steve.

[[Spoiler: TheMagicGoesAway The Magic Goes Away]]: After Zanna [[spoiler: casts a spell to "make the world safe for heterosexuals," thereby flipping his world into ours and making heterosexuality the norm,]] he [[spoiler:loses his magical powers, including his ability to understand his friend Cindy]]. As a final nail in the coffin, [[spoiler: Steve [[KicktheDog snaps Zanna's wand,]] making it truly impossible for Zanna to ever use his magic again.]]

MatchmakerCrush: On Steve. This is treated as a real problem by Zanna, since firstly he doesn't think he'll be able to perform his matchmaking duties if he himself is in love, and second, [[LoveTriangle Steve is already dating Mike.]]

[[RandomlyGifted Randomly Gifted]] He's the only one in Heartsville with any sort of magic, so he's probably this.

[[WideEyedIdealist Wide-Eyed Idealist]] : Zanna's worldview seems to be based on a combination of fairytale logic and [[ThePowerofLove The Power of Love.]] This makes it all the more crushing when [[spoiler: [[BreaktheCutie his friends cruelly mock and ostracize him]] after his spell [[spoiler: makes heterosexuality the norm and wipes everyone's memories.]] Doubly so when you think about the fact that the only reason he performed the spell in the first place was because [[spoiler: he wanted to help his friends (particularly [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy his crush Steve]] ) who [[KicktheDog coldly rejects him and breaks his wand,]] which was Zanna's only connection to [[TheMagicGoesAway the magic he had to leave behind.]] ]]

!![[AC: Steve Bookman]]

[[ICan'tBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe! I Can't Believe a Guy Like You Would Notice Me!]]: Said almost word for word after Zanna helps pair him up with Mike.

[[GayGuySeeksPopularJock Gay Guy Seeks Popular Jock]]: Is on the receiving end of this by Mike, although chess is much more popular than football at any rate, making it more of an inversion.

[[MeetCute Meet Cute]]: He and Kate bump into each other when they first meet.

[[RomanceontheSet Romance on the Set]]: He and Kate are cast as a heterosexual couple in the military who are forced into hiding thier relationship due to the Don't Ask, Don't Tell law. One thing leads to another, and they fall in love, forcing them to hide thier love just like the characters they played had to do.

[[TheQuarterback The Quarterback]]: While he is a quarterback, since chess is cooler than football in this world, heís not the BigManonCampus youíd expect, and is actually kind of insecure. Played [[Pun straight]] in the other world, however.

!![[AC: Mike]]

[[GayGuySeeksPopularJock Gay Guy Seeks Popular Jock]]: Except that he's the popular jock of the chess team crushing on Steve, a football player who is [[SlidingScaleofPopularity almost a nobody in terms of popularity.]]

[[ExtracurricularEnthusiast Extracurricular Enthusiast]]: Captain of the Intramural Bull Riding Club.

[[AcademicAthlete Academic Athlete]]: Strives to eventually earn a medical degree, and is the captain of Heartsville High's intramural bull riding team.

[[Intelligence Equals Isolation]]: A self-imposed case; she's been so focused on schoolwork that she doesn't have time for love.

[[RomanceontheSet Romance on the Set]]: She and Steve are cast as a heterosexual couple in the military who are forced into hiding thier relationship due to the Don't Ask, Don't Tell law.

[[AmbiguousDisorder Ambiguous Disorder]]: **AmbiguousDisorder: Itís subtle, but his [[ChronicHeroSyndrome Chronic Hero Syndrome]] veers into [[NoSocialSkills No Social Skills]] territory, he relates to the world using [[WideEyedIdealist fairytale logic,]] and heís more comfortable with his [[AnimateInanimateObject wand]] and [[FriendtoallLivingThings a bird called]] [[AnimalCompanion Cindy]] than with his human friends at school, and considers them his best friends, even over [[TheDependableOne Tank]].

[[BreaktheCutie Break the Cutie]]: **BreaktheCutie: Starts breaking around the time [[spoiler: Kate and Steve are outed and rejected by the entire town]] and breaks completely once [[spoiler: his newly-heterosexual friends ostracize him]] and [[spoiler: his wand is snapped in half.]]

[[BreaktheHaughty **[[BreaktheHaughty Break the Haughty]]: At the beginning of the musical, Zanna believes himself to be the sole reason anyone falls in love ("if I stopped for just one day, how would life go on?") but soon comes to realize otherwise.

[[UnwantedAssistance **[[UnwantedAssistance Unwanted Assistance]]/[[ChronicHeroSyndrome Chronic Hero Syndrome]]: Canít seem to resist helping people with their love lives, even when they donít ask for it and/or actively tell him not to.


[[TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes **[[TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes The Cobblerís Children Have No Shoes]]: Zanna is so focused on making other people happy and finding matches for them that he completely ignores his own love life. It comes back to bite him when heís trying to repress his feelings for Steve [[LoveTriangle (knowing that heís already dating Mike)]] and his wand, whose job it is to alert Zanna to people in love, starts [[WeaponWieldsYou zapping him]] to get him to act on his feelings.

[[DidNotGetTheGirl **[[DidNotGetTheGirl Did Not Get the Guy]]: He doesn't end up with [[spoiler:Steve]] in the end, but with [[spoiler:Tank]].

[[FriendtoallLivingThings Friend To All Living Things]]: **FriendtoallLivingThings: Is best friends with [[BluebirdofHappiness Cindy]], and an incredibly generous and kindhearted person, often [[UnwantedAssistance to a fault.]]

[[HeroicSacrifice Heroic Sacrifice]]: **HeroicSacrifice: Desperate to make everything better after [[spoiler: Kate and Steve are outed]], Zanna finds a spell that will [[spoiler: ďmake the world safe for heterosexuals,Ē at the cost of his magical power.]] See IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy below.

[[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy **[[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy I Want My Beloved To Be Happy]] : Happy]]: Seeing how devastated Kate and [[MatchmakerCrush Steve]] are when [[spoiler: Everyone rejects them after they accidentally kiss at Mike's chess tournament]], Zanna casts a spell that [[spoiler: permanently flips their world into ours, making heterosexuality the norm and costing Zanna his magical powers and his two best friends in the world]].

[[MagicalQueer Magical Queer]] : **MagicalQueer: Literally!

[[MagicWand Magic Wand]] : **MagicWand: Zanna has one that can tell him if there's someone around that he needs to focus his matchmaking skills on. Itís also [[AnimateInanimateObject sentient]] (and if Zannaís reactions are anything to go by, pretty [[SnarkyInanimateObject sarcastic]]), although it only speaks in Tinkerbell-esque chimes. It can also zap Zanna when he doesnít pay attention to it, like when heís trying to ignore his feelings for Steve.

[[Spoiler: TheMagicGoesAway The Magic Goes Away]] : Away]]: After Zanna [[spoiler: casts a spell to "make the world safe for heterosexuals," thereby flipping his world into ours and making heterosexuality the norm,]] he [[spoiler:loses his magical powers, including his ability to understand his friend Cindy]]. As a final nail in the coffin, [[spoiler: Steve [[KicktheDog snaps Zanna's wand,]] making it truly impossible for Zanna to ever use his magic again.]]

[[MatchmakerCrush Matchmaker Crush]] : MatchmakerCrush: On Steve. This is treated as a real problem by Zanna, since firstly he doesn't think he'll be able to perform his matchmaking duties if he himself is in love, and second, [[LoveTriangle Steve is already dating Mike.]]

[[AmbiguousGender Ambiguous Gender]] : Similarly to [[Theater/RENT Angel,]] the ambiguity comes from not definitively knowing what Zanna's gender identity is. If the line "I'm man, woman, gay, straight, all things in between/ I leave no one out" from "Someday You Might Love Me" is any indication, Zanna appears to be either genderfluid, bigender, or something existing both within and outside of the gender and sexuality spectrums. At any rate, he's likely not cisgender or solely monosexual.
