This article is about the character from the 2019 animated series. You may be looking for the character from the 1994 animated series.

Zack is a professional thief who works with his sister Ivy and Carmen Sandiego.

Zack and Ivy are originally from Boston, Massachusetts—a historic city in the US.

It is not yet known exactly how Zack and Ivy became friends with Carmen. What is known is that they met while Carmen was casing a donut shop which acted as a front for a V.I.L.E hideout in South Boston.

Like his sister, he has a thick Boston accent. He can be trained to speak in proper diction when the need calls for it—especially when he needs to go undercover. The accent, however, will waver from time to time.

Like everyone on Carmen's team, he uses his thieving skills for good. He also acts as a getaway driver for Carmen when she escapes her capers, being a highly skilled driver of both cars and boats. Zack is a big fan of action movies. When Carmen buys Zack a car from one of his favorite movies using the money from V.I.L.E., Zack ponders whether the car is capable of the feats in the movie. Carmen tells him not to find out and chase after Tigress, who has stolen the British Guiana Magenta stamp.

Zack hates any food that are fish.


Zach is generally more easily distracted and less cautious than his sister, as he often thinks with his stomach, and as such is often reduced to following either Carmen or Ivy's instructions. On the other hand, he is surprisingly good at improvising lies; even if he doesn't know what he's talking about, his confidence can sometimes convince the people he's lying to, such as when he lied to Dash Haber about being a Duke and when he convinced El Topo that "the dingos were going crazy".

  • This version of Zack is a major departure from his other counterparts. In the original version, Zack and his sister, Ivy, work for the ACME Detective Agency whose main goal is to apprehend Carmen. In this version, Zack, while still heroic, is a professional thief who is actually aiding Carmen, who in this version is attempting to dismantle V.I.L.E.
  • Zack is always hungry in this incarnation, and Ivy often has to take charge in situations.
