Zazie Rainyday is a character from the Mahou Sensei Negima anime and manga.
Zazie is the one member of Class 2/3-A that's gotten almost no character development at all. From what little information is given on her, she almost never speaks, appears to be some sort of circus performer, and has a number of weird black ghost blobs that accompany her everywhere. She can also apparently see Sayo. Her classmates are aware of her oddities and don't really know what to think of her.
In the AWA fics, Zazie is a student at the AWa Academy.
Zazie is a dark-skinned girl with a short white hair and hazel brown eyes. She has two facial markings on her face, a teardrop over one eye, and what looks like a scar over the other. She usually wears her Mahora Academy uniform.

- Pactio: Primaria In Diabolimundo (literally, "First Princess of the Demon World"). Zazie's artifact is called Devil Pierrot ('Pierrot' being the french word of for clown). Her artifact is the same as her older sister Poyo, allowing her to interact with Poyo's Pactio, Magic Lantern Circus and use it to create a false Cosmo Entelecheia. She is also able to enter, move about, and manipulate (to a certain extent) the illusions created by her sister's artifact, in spite of the fact that she is physically supposed to be in Mahora at the time. How true this statement is, remains to be seen. She also helps explain to Negi many of the intricacies of her sister's artifact's illusionary world, indicating a certain familiarity with it.
- Acrobatic Skills: Zazie is a member of the Mahora Academy's Acrobatic Club, the Nightmare Circus. In the anime, she is shown to have proficiency in all kinds of circus tricks such as juggling, sleight of hand and costume changing.
- Magic Power: According to Negi's class register, Zazie is a member of the school's Magic Club. Zazie notes to Negi that her powers are comparable to that of her older Sister, making her one of the most powerful beings in the series. She is also seen directing a group of "monsters" and "spirits" (similar to No-Face in Spirited Away). She is also one of the initial characters capable of seeing Sayo Aisaka. Her wordless interaction with Ayaka could be due teleparthy.
- Her and Evangeline's Epilogue suggest that sequel aren't out of reach.
- In the Negima fanbase, Zazie has the largest amount of fanfictions.
- Zazie often gets portrayed with a bird, or with Chisame or Mana.
- The Nightmare Circus, which might have finally given Zazie some character development, was cut due to the Chao arc taking more time than Akamatsu expected.
- When Zazie's name is seen it is written in the Latin alphabet, rather than in Japanese. Similarly, Evangeline's name is also written with the Roman alphabet. This seems to indicate that, like Evangeline, Zazie isn't from Japan and is instead from a country which uses the Roman alphabet. This is backed up by the fact that Chisame referred to her as a transfer student . Her name is most closely related to the word "zany" meaning clownish or whimsical.
- In the AWA fics, Zazie seems to be interested with Ed.
