Fictional character biography
The character's public identity is Coltrane "Trane" Walker, an African-American professional basketball player. He operates secretly as a technologically enhanced "closer" – an agent who can be counted to tie up loose ends in espionage operations, including the elimination of witnesses – in the guise of a masked, blond, white man, code-named "Xero". The series deals with the protagonist's development of a conscience.
Unusually for a comic set in an established publisher-owned universe, "Xerø" was half creator-owned: though all the characters featured in the book belong to DC Comics, Priest co-owns copyright to the stories and art. The series had limited interaction with the rest of the DCU; Doctor Polaris made a guest appearance during the crossover event "Genesis", but Xerø did not appear in any other DC comics. Although intended to be an ongoing series, sales were weak and DC cancelled it. Priest quickly brought the story to its conclusion in the last issue.
