Confident and proud, Zale always speaks his mind and shares his opinion on things, if need be; while he's not one to shove his opinion down other people's throats ("sometimes it's better to just shut up and not make things worse by saying the potentially wrong thing"), he doesn't hold back when asked, either. He's got a temper and is easily enraged, especially when he sees injustice of any kind - he is a peace-loving guy, after all.
He also tends to start crying when dealing with strong emotions, even though he'd rather not show this kind of weakness in front of others.

While he likes to wear clothing and accessories that others might consider pretty and feminine, he absolutely identifies as male to the core; he just doesn't give a rat's butt about gender roles and stereotypes - Zale wears what he wants and likes, it's as simple as that. He doesn't shy away from wearing heels or applying guyliner and nail polish, either.
Above all, however, he likes to be comfortable. Lots of his clothes are large and wide - he has quite a few close-fitting clothes, especially pants, that highlight his features too - with layering being a go-to look. Just because he wants to look good doesn't mean he can't be comfy, right?

When it comes to love and sexuality, Zale identifies as pansexual. He is attracted to a person as a whole, instead of fixating on only specific features, but requires a strong partner one way or another: someone to keep a level head and support him in difficult and emotional situations; someone who doesn't look down on him or quickly writes him off - someone just like Del.
With him looking the way he does, people tend to peg him as gay. Usually, he just doesn't bother to correct them on it, either, as they're not necessarily wrong, heh? In case he does enlighten them, though, people often enough are shocked, as in didn't expect, to hear that he indeed also likes women. And that kind of reaction just has gotten old pretty fast, so he mostly lets them believe whatever.

All in all though, Zale is (with a few exceptions) a rather chill and open guy. He probably won't share his life story unless being asked, but if you do he won't sugarcoat or skip important details either. Just ask, and he'll probably tell.
