— Zac to all the mermaids
Lives in Zac's Garage
-He's a merman
Zac Blakely is the main character in Mako Mermaids. He will become a merman while camping at Mako Island. An easy-going guy, Zac is quite sporty and grew up surfing. He's a water sports kind of guy, and a very strong person when it comes to personality, and after becoming a Merman, things dramatically change when he becomes something hes never imagined could e true let alone real. Zac starts out as an all-round nice guy. He's popular and sporty, always off on one adventure or another with best mate Cam. He and Cam have a healthy and long-running rivalry - based firmly in good-hearten mateship.
The rivalry fuels both boys in everything they do - and they banter constantly. But truth be told, they both win as often as they lose. They are essentially equals. That is until the Moon Pool endows Zac with amazing powers and the ability to morph into a merman.
When he first gets a tail, Zac experiences a range of different emotions. First he's stunned, then intrigued, and then bummed - after all, his new status as half-fish undeniably makes him a bit unusal. In addition, he knows he can't get wet in front of people without morphing. He soon finds out that the plus side of his powers outweighs the negative side. Zac soon begins to embrace his new changes. This causes a rift in his friendship with Cam - who is used to being Zac's equal, and is obviously jealous of Zac's new abilities.
When things hit rock bottom with Cam, Lyla, Sirena, and Nixie learn of Zac's powers and Zac finds a new support network. It's Lyla that Zac feels most comfortable confiding in, causing problems with his girlfriend, Evie, who breaks up with him in "Betrayal."
This all changes when Zac discovers not only that Lyla is a mermaid - but that she wants to take away new powers. The battlelines are drawn. After Zac's transformation into a merman, he discovers he can hold his breath underwater.
Chris is a new character that appears in season 2. He is portrayed by Taylor Glockner.
Becoming a mermanEdit
