Zakku was born in December, in Skream, the Witches Territory of Hades. His father was a Knight who had been killed by a warlords henchmen, for rebelling. He had died just days after Zakku's birth. Zakku's mother was a Magus who taught him how to use the element of Wind. When Zakku was ten, his mother was killed right in front of him by The Count's soldiers. He was then captured and imprisoned in a dungeon with The Count's other enemies.
Zakku spent five years there, in The Count's dungeon. He was forced to do hard physical labor, such as mining gold and coal, digging trenches, and helping to build tunnels. He was often verbally and physically abused by the guards, and even molested. However, Zakku was later helped by an old man who protected him from the guards. The old man had been imprisoned for rebelling against The Count, and was an Alchemist, who had known Zakku's father. Zakku's father was Gorou Kobayashi, a Knight. The old alchemist, named Nobuo, had been an old mentor of Gorou, teaching him alchemy skills. Nobuo decided to teach Zakku, the son of his late pupil. Zakku learned how to transmute elements and create things from alchemy.
During those five years, Zakku had also discovered that he had a Branch of Sin, mutated blood that could be used as a weapon or to form armor. This meant that he was a Deadman. According to Nobuo, Zakku could control his Branch of Sin because he had been exposed to shards of the Red Diamond while mining. His power was kept secret from the guards, who would surely find some way to brainwash him into The Count's Army. At the age of fifteen, Zakku escaped from the dungeon with Nobuo. However, there were too many soldiers chasing after him. Nobuo stayed to fight them off with his alchemy, but was killed when an arrow pierced his heart. Nobuo was killed, but Zakku managed to escape.
Ever since then, Zakku lived the life of a wandering nomad, travelling from town to town. He eventually stayed with a Shaman tribe who were impressed with his power. They bestowed upon him, Toru, a Guardian Ghost. Becoming a Shaman, Zakku could use furykou, as well as an Oversoul, by summoning the spirit of Toru.
