Appearance during Winds of Change

Initiate Zei Ri is a member of the Ministry of Purity. He is one of the main members focused solely on eliminating all remaining Afflicted in Cantha. His father was killed during Shiro Tagachi's return, and it was never known if he was turned into an Afflicted. After the elimination of Afflicted, Zei Ri visited Tahnnakai Temple to pay respects and took a brief respite, later returning to duty when Reiko gave a speech in Kaineng City. Following this, he joined the task of hunting down the Am Fah and Jade Brotherhood. Over time, he shows a continual loss of faith in the Ministry of Purity as they become more ruthless, eventually leading to him leaving the Ministry.
