What are Zenless Zone Zero Proxies?

In Zenless Zone Zero, Proxies fill a similar role to that of Genshin Impact’s Traveler and Honkai Star Rail’s Trailblazer. But who are they exactly?

Hoyoverse’s upcoming action RPG is right around the corner and is sure to enthrall all who come across it. But what exactly are Zenless Zone Zero Proxies? Well, if you’re familiar with Genshin Impact or Honkai Star Rail, the best way to look at the Proxies is that they fill the role of the protagonist, much like the Traveler and Trailblazer.

Before we fill you in on even more details, you should go and read our Zenless Zone Zero release date guide to find out exactly when you can play. Or, scroll through our Zenless Zone Zero characters guide to learn more about the colorful faces you’ll come across in this fresh adventure.

Who are the Zenless Zone Zero Proxies?

In Zenless Zone Zero, a Proxy is someone who enters supernatural disasters called Hollows to guide whoever ventures in on their exploration. Hoyoverse has introduced us to two Proxies who seem to fill similar roles to Genshin Impact’s Traveler and Honkai Star Rail’s Trailblazer. They’re a sibling duo named Belle and Wise, and you get to choose one to play as while you explore New Eridu. However, you don’t actually take your Proxy into combat.

The Proxy you don’t choose remains in-game as a non-playable character who acts as an assistant. There’s also a network of Proxies called “Inter-Knot”, but we don’t know too much about them outside of their logo at the time of writing. Check back here from time to time for more details as they crop up.

Belle is the female Proxy, with Yīku jing voicing the character in Chinese, you may recognize her from various roles in Arknights. Senbongi Sayaka voices Belle in Japanese, who has credits from characters in Pokémon and Attack on Titan. We don’t have details of her English VA just yet, but we’ll add it here as soon as we can.

Belle and her brother co-own a video rental store called Random Play, they also work together as a Proxy team and are known as “Phaethon”.

Wise is the male Proxy, with Lín jing, who voiced characters in Digimon Survive and Arknights, voicing him in Chinese. Abe Atsushi dubs Wise in Japanese, who you may also know as the voice of Genshin Impact’s Heizou. Much like Belle, we don’t have any details on his English VA.

He has a very different personality to his sister and is a gentle and reserved man who is very thoughtful.
