Do you know who the man in the picture is?

He is Zorro. A Spanish hero who stood for truth and justice. Zorro is the secret identity of Don Diego de la Vega a nobleman and master living in the Spanish colonial era of California.

The character has undergone changes through the years, but the typical image of him is a black-clad masked outlaw who defends the people of the land against corrupted officials and other villains.

Not only is he much too cunning and foxlike for the bumbling authorities to catch, but he delights in publicly humiliating those same foes.

His calculating and precise dexterity as a tactician has enabled him to use his two main weapons, his sword and bullwhip, as an extension of his very deft hand. He never uses brute strength, more his fox-like sly mind and well-practiced technique to outmatch an opponent.

Zorro is also a skilled horseman. The name of his horse has varied through the years. But his horse is usually known as Tornado, an Andalusian.

Zorro is commonly known for his mark of ‘Z’ for each of his exploits and his swordsmanship skills.
