ZZ was one of the MOPs in Wit O'Toole's unit, and went to Chinaw with the rest of the team. When Wit went with Mazer Rackham and Calinga to destroy a Formic lander, ZZ continued to help around the airbase the MOPs were occupying. Afterward, ZZ and the other MOPs gathered around a computer, where Bingwen found information on the location of Wit and Mazer. The MOPs all knew that General Sima would be a difficult target to attack, but while they were talking about how to rescue Wit and Mazer, Bingwen began typing a letter, which gave Sima credit for destruction of the letter. ZZ and the others realized the brilliance of the letter, as it would ultimately force Sima to release Wit and Mazer. ZZ, Cocktail, and Bolshakov then helped Bingwen put together a recipient list for the letter.
After more time of fighting in China under the command of Deen, the MOPs were contacted by Wit who told them to head 10 kilometers southeast of the Dragon's Den in order to be picked up by a Chinese escort. The group was picked up by Lieutenant Li, who was reluctant on allowing Bingwen to come. On the way to the Dragon's Den, ZZ and Cocktail sat by Bingwen. On the premises ZZ and the other MOPs were greeted by Wit.
Several days later the MOPs gathered together to call Imala Bootstamp and Victor Delgado, who had contacted them through Bingwen about a mission to infiltrate the Formic ship. They were greeted in the call by Lem Jukes, who introduced Imala and Victor before Wit introduced all the MOPs. Lem explained their plan to use disguised cocoons to transport the MOPs to the Formic scout ship. After the call, ZZ expressed his concerns as he would not have any control over the flight path, and the tight space of the cocoon may make him go crazy after several hours.
The next day, Bingwen left to go to military school, and ZZ went to see him off.
ZZ went to Luna with the MOPs. Juke Limited's lawyers had ZZ sign a liability form. ZZ then went to the Valas, where Victor debriefed the MOPs about the tasks they were to complete while infiltrating the Formic ship. While Victor trained the MOPs, ZZ had a difficult time getting use to orientation in zero gravity as there was no up or down. ZZ was later selected to join the team that would infiltrate the Formic scout ship.
On the Formic ship, ZZ blocked the gun turrets with wall plates before heading into the bay. After Mazer arrived in the bay, the Formics began attacking the infiltration team. ZZ died in the onslaught as he was escaping the ship.
