Captain Zahab (ゼイハブ船長 Zeihabu-senchō?) is the leader of the Space Pirates Balban. Cruel and violent but at the same time a great strategist and expert warrior. Long ago, the Demon Beast Daitanix came into being on his homeworld, Zahab met Barreled Scholar Bucrates who taught him the means to become immortal by the Star Soul Jewels created by Daitanix eating worlds. Mastering Daitanix, Zahab gathered many followers with the promise of long life and treasure from destroyed worlds. Among the worlds he destroyed is Planet Taurus, Zaihab forcing its protector Bullblack to stand down by holding his brother Krantz hostage before killing the boy in front of him. When Zaihab came to Earth, he and the Barban met their match against the first Gingamen, losing his left hand to the original Ginga Red before being sealed away for three millenia.
Revived in the present, with a cannon integrated hook in place of his hand, Zaihab bore a grudge against those who take the mantle of GingaRed, including Ryouma. Hearing the death of an underling does not seem to affect him, but deep inside he suffers in private.
