| COMMUNITY LORE|
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Before joining the team, Zion was a stadium imp who worked day and night to both support the tigers and work on her masterpiece: A mech specifically designed for Blaseball named the Iron Lion. After years of effort, she showed up with the completed mech at a Hades Tigers training session. It was reported that several onlookers questioned if mechs were allowed in Blaseball. Said onlookers were promptly crushed by the Iron Lion. She was brought onto the team shortly after.
"I'm quite certain that mechs aren't allowed in blaseball!" - Deceased Blaseball Fan.
The Iron Lion
The Iron Lion is a mech built by Zion with the help of her sister Curry Aliciakeyes. The name "Iron Lion" was chosen due to its rhyming nature. Being stadium imps who come from Hades, neither Zion or Curry were aware of the difference between lions and tigers when this naming took place.
The Iron Lion is constantly being tinkered with and retrofitted, and thus changes its appearance often. Generally, she is predominantly red or orange, with hands and legs that mimic the look of tiger paws as well as a striped tail. The dimensions of the mech can be any size, "as long as it's small enough to fit through the stadium doors", a rule implemented by Fearful Symmetry due to a series of unfortunate accidents in the past. This has been dubbed the "No Large Robots" rule, and has been written in red marker on the whiteboard of her workshop.
Zion's timid demeanor still shines through despite the Iron Lion's intimidating appearance. Despite being outshined by her hard-hitting companions on the Hades roster, her mech is a fan favorite among stadium imps as well as younger fans of Blaseball.
Zion has stated that joining the Tigers has "fixed her sleep schedule, cleared her skin, and watered the two houseplants in her apartment". She has a self-imposed "No Drinking Coffee" rule. She has admitted that this is, in fact, somewhat related to her "No Large Robots" rule, but refuses to elaborate on this further.
Her non-blaseball interests include:
- Old mech anime reruns
- Martial arts movies and Hong Kong crime dramas
- Chinese pop music
During the passing of the Alternate Reality decree, Zion attempted to prevent Yazmin Mason (IF-17.34) from being transferred to another dimension. This resulted in a dimensional portal closing around her arm. During the break between seasons 4 and 5, she replaced the lost limb with a custom-built prosthetic. Zion has refused all interview questions on the topic.
- Zion has repeatedly demonstrated her ability to change her skin tone. Colours she has used are: multiple shades of blue, red and purple, and white.
- This, of course, leads people to speculate that she and her sister Curry Aliciakeyes could be the same person. After all, Zion is often purple, much like Curry. Zion has never worn a pair of glasses before though, so they must be two different people.
- Her favorite Blaseball teams aside from her own are the Hellmouth Sunbeams and the Charleston Shoe Thieves. She has lost several pairs of her favorite shoes to the Shoe Thieves when visiting the Choux Stadium.
- Her love for robots and Blaseball (as well as robot Blaseball) can be seen through her friendships with robot Blaseball players such as Cory Twelve, who is also friends with her sister.
