Zac is a character from season 1 of The Story of Tracy Beaker. He is the twin brother of Ryan. They shared a room in the first series, with Zac residing on the bottom bunk of their bed. An avid martial arts fan, he also likes vampires and owned a family of dolls, which he later sold.

Zac owns an ant farm where every ant is called Trevor. Tracy, Justine and Louise set these ants free in the boys camping tent, with Tracy telling the Trevors to 'take the biggest bite out of Zac.'

Zac also owned an inflatable alien called Zorg which stood by his bed. During the job swap, Maxy punctured Zorg, leading Zac to think that Louise had done it. Zac also has a slight fear of vampires, as he once hung garlic around his and Ryan's bedroom to lure away vampires. Ryan moved out for a short time as he couldn't stand the smell and thought his brother was losing it.

He once faced sickness (or did he) when trying to get out of the dentist and into a hip gig. His twin brother, Ryan assisted zac with this gag but duke and mike were having none of it and continued to go into the brother's room with their dinner which consisted of 'crackers...creamed of course' . This did not make mike and duke popular with the boys.

Throughout the series, Zac is clearly very close with his twin, Ryan. As they both seem to have an act for reparing, like when they offered to fix Justine's broken clock, on the house. Zac continues to side with his brother when it comes to intimidating poor Maxy.

Zac and his twin disapeared with no explanation after the final episode of series 1, "The End"
