General Zinglon is a posthumous character from Tyrian.
General Zinglon was originally a Microsol operative and station commander at Gryphon Station. He led a group of scientists during the excavation efforts on Gyges and Ixmucane, and was responsible for the death of 241 pilots to the defensive systems left by the Zica on the tunnels of Ixmucane.
At the time of The Not-so-Great Gryphon Explosion, Zinglon was demonstrating a matter transporter on the Gryphon Station when he was caught in the explosion. While what exactly happened to him is a mystery, many people reported to have seen his image on their vidscreens, which resulted in Zinglon being deified and the birth of the Order of Zinglon, which worships Zinglon as their patron deity.
