Zafiro is a gargoyle of the Mayan Clan and a descendant of the 1996 Zafiro and Obsidiana. Hatched in 2158, Zafiro he is the same age as Samson, Nick Maza and Delilah. The four of them all learned Bushido together at Ishimura and became close friends in an almost Three Musketeers-manner. Like his ancestors in 1996, Zafiro wears one of the magical pendants powered by the Mayan Sun Amulet, which kept him from turning to stone in the daytime when not traveling (in which all the gargoyles can't turn to stone). He resembles the Zafiro of 1996 in physical appearance, but has Obsidiana's coloring. He is less of a warrior than Samson, Nick and Delilah, being more of a bookish scholar.
