Zigo d'Acosta diary
These bastards down here don't know it yet, but I am the sea made flesh. I'll wash through these halls reclaiming her sacred blood, filling me veins with her strength.
― Zigo d'Acosta[src]

Zigo d’Acosta (often referred to as the Fisherman) is a playable character in BioShock 2 Multiplayer. Zigo was the seventh character to be revealed in the Cult of Rapture's Faces of Rapture's Civil War, and is a bonus unlockable character.

"Zigo d'Acosta earned his gruff, pitiless, and highly superstitious nature chasing some of the world’s most dangerous game out on the open waters of the sea. He was born aboard a whaling ship, and, for all intents and purposes, was raised by the only two entities that figured into his life with any sort of consistency: the ship’s captain and the sea itself. Zigo d'Acosta came to Rapture eager to experience the sea from a new perspective."

Zigo's disappearance from the surface was noticed by his family, who put out missing person fliers for him. When Zigo arrived in Rapture he worked in Neptune's Bounty. One day, while working at the Fisheries, one of Zigo's co-workers named Burke was killed in an accident. Before he died, Burke revealed to Zigo the location of his ADAM stash, which Zigo eventually found. The ADAM ultimately warped Zigo's mind to the point that he heard a Big Daddy groan and claimed that it was the sea telling him he was the only one who could wield the sea's "Holy Blood" (or ADAM), and that it was his mission to destroy Rapture and reclaim it for the sea. By his third diary, Zigo thinks himself to be the physical incarnation of the ocean and seeks to kill both Andrew Ryan and Atlas in the name of the sea.

Before SplicingEdit


Zigo d'Acosta was one of the many fishermen of Rapture, and dressed appropriately. He wears a navy blue oilskin coat over beige overalls, tucked into his boots, and a black sweater. He is bald but has a thick grey beard. Zigo can wear a Sou'wester and he can use his billy club as a unique weapon.

After SplicingEdit

Zigo's dislike towards both Ryan and Atlas did not stop him from participating in the ADAM-based war between them. Holes have appeared in his boots, coat, overalls, and sweater while fighting, the two latter revealing both skin and his undergarment. The Sou'wester has gotten torn around the edges. He has bandages around his left leg, right wrist and the top part of his head. The right side of his face appears to have become more compact, with his eye spliced nearly shut and his beard growing much higher on his cheek. His right eye is wide open, with a scar going straight through it. A large cut appears on his right cheek, which has been poorly stitched. He also has a plaster on his nose.
