CZ Delta is a girl who is short in stature and has red-gold straight long hair. She wears an eyepatch over her left eye, while her right eye has an emerald color and target-mark on the pupil. Her face is very delicate, it looks as if it was artificially crafted by hand. She wears accessories with military camouflage patterns. While her face is beautiful, she does not show her emotions and talks in a flat tone.
Her attire is similar to that of Narberal Gamma and Yuri Alpha. However, the biggest difference between her attire and theirs are her urban camouflage accessories and the cute sticker attached to a corner of her skirt with '1 yen' written on it. The other significant difference is the white gun she often has holstered on her waist similar to how one would wear a sword.
CZ2I28 Delta appears emotionless and has a silent nature. Her Karma is relatively high, which makes her, along with Yuri Alpha, one of the two "safe" Pleiades to humans. Though she usually ignores conversations from humans, sometimes there is a possibility to communicate with her.
CZ2I28 Delta hates cannibalism, but likes cute things, such as Eclair Ecleir Eicler. At the same time, she also takes pleasure in hugging the struggling Eclair like a doll. She often hugs things she finds cute until someone of authority tells her to let go. She also pastes a One-Yen Sticker on the things that she likes.
CZ2I28 Delta was created by Garnet to be one of the battle maids, the Pleiades. They served as a last line of defense against intruders. However, because she is unlikely to be able to stand against enemy players who managed to come this far, her only real purpose was to distract the invaders until the guild members of Ainz Ooal Gown were able to fully prepare for their final stand in the throne room.
CZ2I28 Delta's creator was one of the Supreme Beings, other than Tabula Smaragdina, responsible for the design of the Treasury's security systems in Nazarick. Thus, her character settings were set to be familiar with Nazarick's mechanism unlocking methods. CZ's knowledge of those mechanisms had been part of the backstory her creator had made for her.
She is the most popular member of the Pleiades among the Homunculus Maids. The Homunculus Maids even fight among themselves to sit next to her and some of them even want a hug pillow of her.

- Main article: The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom Arc
Either CZ or her Doppel-maid participates in the fight against Ainz along with Jaldaboath as part of a mock battle in the city. Prior to the start of the battle, CZ's combat abilities are enhanced thanks to Aureole Omega. Once the fight commences, she is given the task of hiding in one of the buildings secretly. There, she will shoot her magic bullets at Ainz, disrupting him from successfully casting his spells.
Later not long after Ainz supposedly falls in battle, CZ shows up in the Holy Kingdom's Liberation base of operations, now supposedly under the Sorcerer King's direct authority. As a security precaution, she is put in chains and placed under house arrest in one of the abandoned noble houses. It is around this time that the Zern representative, Beebeebee, comes to request the humans to liberate their prince in return for their co-operation. Prince Caspond uses this as an opportunity to test CZ's supposed loyalty. He hopes to increase their chances of success and appoints her to work with Neia Baraja on rescuing the prince and liberating the city of Kalinsha. After getting to know each other and easing the tense situation between the two, both Neia and CZ decide they will carry out the rescue together and start to form a bond over their loyalty to the Sorcerer King.
The two infiltrate the demi-human occupied city of Kalinsha through the Zern help by hiding inside of barrels which are covered in meat to hide their scent. After they reach the base of the castle, they climb up the walls and reach the room that was prepared by the Zern by having a rope tied to a cupboard so they can reach the room underneath. Thus they carefully infiltrate the inner halls and reach the prince's room, which is guarded by two very powerful Vah Uns. After a bit of long struggle, they are both defeated, one at the guard station and one when they were crossing the walkway. Then they meet with the Zern prince, Beebeezee, and inform him about the Zerns. After he is informed that they came to his rescue and that his father, the king, has been killed, he immediately goes with them to meet the other Zerns to figure out what to do next.
When he is discussing their future with other Zerns, Neia suggests they go to the Sorcerer Kingdom as refugees, which surprises both him and CZ. After some deliberations, they decide to go along with her suggestion; only to learn that one of the three demon commanders will arrive in their location shortly. It is then decided this will be their chance to take out one of Jaldabaoth's commanders and cripple the alliance organization. So CZ, Neia, the Prince, and his followers join forces to battle the demon and win. Thus, they later ensure victory for all parties involved; with the city of Kalinsha re-captured and both CZ and Neia become heroes for their success in the operation.
CZ continues to support Neia as she uses her new fame to form the Sorcerer King's Rescue Team and helps her with various works. When the final battle at Prart begins, she is seen at Neia's side to also protect her. Their team battles the demi-human force alongside the rest of the Holy Kingdom Liberation Army. Once Ainz puts an end to Jaldaboath's terror through killing the demon, they cheer on and congratulate him for his victory.

Mass for the Dead Arc
- Main article: Mass for the Dead Arc
After Nazarick was transported to the New World and was left in ruins, CZ worked with the other Pleiades to restore Nazarick to its former glory. Having been recently revived CZ and the battle maids lost several of their levels and it would be some time before they were at full power. Still CZ and her sisters were committed to their duties and were the first NPCs to do a survey of the Crack on the 10th Floor, gaining vital data on its cycles and the Chaos Beasts. The automaton would also make a trip with Momonga, Albedo and Yuri to the Treasury to access any damage it might have incurred when Nazarick was attacked. Thankfully the treasury was spared any damage as it existed in a separate space. There she met Pandora's Actor and nearly attacked him after he tried to impersonate Momonga.
CZ2I28 Delta with the rest of her sisters greeted Narberal Gamma upon her return from the outside world. From the doppelgänger she gained some insight on human society and started practicing on how to communicate with them by referring them as "maggots". It gained some attention from Sebas Tian and Momonga who intervene to correct some misconceptions and focus their training on hospitality. CZ would assist Yuri in cleaning up the piles of debris left on the 6th Floor. After some discussion with her and Entoma, the trio decided it would be best to crush all the piles into sand for easier storage. Overtime CZ began to suffer some distress over her being brought back to life and also the decrepit state of Nazarick. It only was made worse that many of her favorite animals that she went to for comfort on the 6th Floor were dead. However she brightened up when Demiurge talked about a mission to capture some "sheep". Eager to pet some fluffy animals, CZ volunteered to capture the "sheep". Everything was fine until the automaton found out the "sheep" were humans that wandered to close to Nazarick, causing her mind to freeze at what they were doing. Brought back to Nazarick, the automaton's mind was at a still, and had to be coaxed back to reality after Momonga used a Spear Needle summoned from Ashurbanipal.
The automaton maid would assist Yuri and Entoma Vasilissa Zeta in cleaning several piles of discarded debris on the 6th Floor by smashing them into sand and stored for later use. While cleaning the 6th Floor, CZ got into an argument with Entoma over who was the older sister among the two. To determine who was eldest the two Pleiades maids competed in some tasks from Chaos Beast subjugation, cleaning to servicing Momonga. In the end the two are told by Momonga the title of eldest did not matter as it was not a detail that worried their creators that much as in his opinion they wanted them to get along and not fight. CZ hearing that decided to cease their competition and make peace with Entoma, though it was temporary as the two maids got into a dispute over which chair they made for Momonga was better. The maid would be part of Sebas Tian's personal initiative to spread an atmosphere of hospitality to the overworked Floor Guardians. As part of her way to brighten Nazarick, CZ created a beautiful flower field on the 6th Floor for Aura and Mare.
CZ would be paired with Entoma to chaperone some soldiers that came from beyond the Crack. While interacting with them on a training mission out in the skies of the New World, CZ expressed her liking to the leader and placed one of her One-Yen Stickers on her back. The party is attacked though by by several flying type Chaos Beasts and a Giant Flying Chaos Beast which forced them to retreat.
During a Nazarick event like the Nazarick Fighting Tournament, CZ was part of Cocytus's team "Cocytus and the Pleiades". Her team was victorious and came out as the winners of the tournament. CZ would be called again by Momonga to scout a mysterious island that was connected to Nazarick via a temporary [Gate]. After receiving some water-proof gear such as the swimsuit. Together with the Pleaides she had to battle undead and a Giant Mollusk in order to claim the pirates' loot. When the protagonist was doing a sting operation to capture the ones responsible for a string of disappearances in E-Rantel, CZ operated in the shadows to monitor the protagonist's and Blue Roses investigation. She helped capture a suspect by sniping him from afar, keeping out of sight until the protagonist's adventurer team were alone in the E-Rantel's Cemetery to wish them luck.
Another event such as the Christmas party came to Nazarick, though CZ was unable to participate as she was stuck on guard duty on the 6th Floor with Entoma and Cocytus but could hear the complaints of her sisters from the cantina as they were cooking Christmas Cakes.
At the time when most of the NPCs in Nazarick were being mentally influenced by a New Year's epidemic, CZ found herself compelled to head to Fake Nazarick where it was transformed into a strange Chaos Zone. There she was encountered by Momonga and his team who were investigating the cause. Unaware of the danger to CZ all was fine despite the eerie situation and concentrated kite flying.
When Shiramochi-ō, the mastermind behind the New Year's effect over Nazarick, was defeated by Momonga and his allies that should have been the end of the spell over the Nazarick and the NPCs, however the entity used the last of its power to restart time, creating a loop of the same events that led to the New Year's epidemic with some slight changes. Once again CZ, was under the mental influence as in the previous timeline but rather than finding herself all alone in the middle of a Chaos Zone, she was with the Pleiades and Pandora's Actor waiting for Momonga and his team to play karuta. After Momonga and his team won, the party was given a treasure bag and mallet as prizes. The spell was broken after the character Shiro who was actually a regressed Shiramochi-ō willingly allowed himself to be killed by Momonga. Though the maid had no recollection of what happened.
Other times like during the second summit of the Tripartite Alliance, CZ was stationed at the rooftops under invisibility magic to monitor the area near the venue of the conference. From her view point she informed her allies that the inner city guards were having a skirmish with a riot of the people. In the commotion, she sensed that her summons was crushed underfoot by the mob.
The conference was disturbed by a greater threat of a horde of Chaos Beasts approaching the city. When the protagonist volunteered to head out to deal with the monsters before they reached the city, Entoma and CZ secretly met with him and his team at the north gate to support him. They cut through the waves of Contaminated Beasts and Chaos Beasts until they came across a Double Sword Chaos Beast. The beast was regarded as a severe threat and eliminated thanks to the combined might of the covert agents and undercover adventurers. Once it was killed credit was given to the protagonist to bolster his image.
CZ would act on guard detail for some new visitors from the Crack along with Yuri Alpha in the Tob Forests making sure that their guests were protected while interacting with one of their mad comrades. At the time of second cherry blossoming viewing, CZ made preparations of the arrival of the Parent Tree to the tomb.
More stranger occurrences happened like when Albedo temporarily became a maid, and helped settled a dispute with Entoma and CZ, the latter who was angry at the Arachnoid for eating one of Kyouhukou's subjects while they were cleaning the Lemegeton. The two would participate in a raiding drill on the 9th Floor in the event of an attack. During the drill the maids had to prevent the intruder, being Shalltear, from reaching Momonga.
CZ was sent out into the field with the Pleiades, acting as part of the monitoring team, shadowing the protagonist's mission to a seaside village to learn about a dwarf named Tsuibayaya who may have some connections with players. There the plan was complicated by the appearance of Blue Roses who were looking for the dwarf to acquire some armors he promised to the royal family. CZ and the rest of the other Pleaides, with the exception of Solution and Narberal, kept to the shadows to avoid detection from the adamantite adventurers. It turned out that the dwarf was just a craftsmen who replicated items like swimsuits based on stories he heard. The dwarf wanted to create the perfect swimsuit but to do so he believed that he needed the scales of the Legendary Mermaid. As he refused to help the adventurers, he made a deal to have them retrieve the scales in exchange for his armors and services. After the adventurers agreed, the adventurers split to cover more ground. At that point CZ and the rest of her sisters came out of hiding to assist the protagonist. Now equipped in her swimsuit, CZ helped locate the Tide Pool and attempted to dive in there with Yuri only to have her floatation device bring her back to the surface. After confirming it connected an underwater network of tunnels, she and the Pleiades retreated to avoid being seen by Blue Roses. When the Legendary Mermaid challenged the gathered adventurers to a duel, CZ was the one who secretly helped them achieve victory by sniping the demi-human from a distance. Once the scales were acquired and given to Tsuibayaya, who finished making the Sage's Swimsuit and gifted it to Gagaran. Upon it completion and achieving his dream, the dwarf presented Blue Roses with the armors. However after they left the craftsmen was at a loss of what to do as he accomplished his life long dream. Taking pity on the dwarf, the protagonist had the Pleiades dress in their swimsuits to show the craftsmen the true swimsuits he was attempting to craft making him motivated to craft even better versions.
A haunting of the Tob Forest began to occur, and blame was put on evil spirits that were angry for being neglected due to the absence of the Harvest Festival. With Carne Village abandoned, Nazarick felt that the only way to resolve this was to complete the event to appease the spirit. CZ helped the Pleiades, Aura, Hamsuke and the Death Knight set up the event. The event was adapted to a Bon Odori and the maids wore yukatas to commemorate it. However during the festivities at the village, they were attacked by a giant fox. In the confrontation, Shizu was enthralled over the "cuteness" of the beast. It turned out the giant fox was just a creature named Kyuko who spent a centuries long journey searching for beings similar to her. She had come to the Tob Forest hearing about the Wise King of the Forest and believed Hamsuke was a being similar to her. The hauntings were just her using invisibility while spying on Hamsuke and Nazarick's minions, the latter Kyuko assumed to be Hamsuke enslavers hence why she attacked. Once the misunderstandings were cleared up Kyuko was offered a place in Nazarick which she accepted and enjoyed the remaining hours of the festival. To show her liking to the new recruit, CZ put a One-Yen Sticker on the fox's back.
CZ was present in the cantina when a new batch of visitors from the Crack came to Nazarick, led by a paranoid hero character. When another group of new visitors from another world came to warn them about the Waves of Calamity, CZ was part of their entourage, guiding them to the Tob Forest to have them assist in the Chaos Beast subjugation. The visitors to Nazarick would be attacked by another group that came out of the Crack who were under the belief killing them would prevent the Waves of Calamity. CZ and the rest of the entourage were ordered not to interfere until both parties intentions were made clear and if they were threats to Nazarick. Once it was made apparent that the new group were clearly unreasonable and the aggressors to the conflict, Momonga ordered the security to engage them and protect the former group. The Nazarick agents made short work of the aggressors and prepare to eliminate them however the visitors of both parties seemingly vanished.
At the time of the Demon Emperor Jaldabaoth's attack on E-Rantel, CZ posed as a Demon Maid and slaughtered the city guards that resisted the demons pillaging the city. The maid attacked Brain and Climb from the rooftops using her firearm. When they were about to pursue her, she came to them instead and attacked.
Due to her knowledge on all the gimmicks in Nazarick, CZ was assigned to determine if there were any traps set by Luci★Fer and she found one, the Open Air Golem that only activated unless a harem appeared in its presence. The maid was one of the contestants of the Miyoshi Cup to get nominated to be the one to challenge Miyoshi for his title as bathing attendant of Momonga. However CZ lost in the politeness challenge as she refused to clean Neuronist Painkill which was the contest. Afterwards to deal with the golem, she helped to deactivate in when Momonga and several female NPCs were in its proximity.
After Nazarick received a priority [Message] from Cocytus that the Great Lake area was being frozen by a abnormal cold wave and threatening to freeze the lizardmen and driving the native monsters from the northern monsters, CZ alongside Entoma and Lupusregina were sent to determine the cause of the weather change. Before they left they were given Christmas Costumes to protect them from the frigid temperatures. They made their way towards the northern mountains following the source, on occasion fighting beasts they were trying to escape for the cold. The maids finally came to a cave where the found a Crack and the Frozen Giant that was continuously bashing anything that emerged from the phenomena, its strength creating the wind pressure that was creating the cold front. The monster proves to be very formidable but Entoma was able to deduce a weakness in its structure allowing the maids to set fire on it and cause to crumble. To draw its attention CZ uses her self as bait long enough for Lupusregina to set fire on the vines holding the things together. After their successful mission the group returned to Nazarick just in time for the second Christmas party.
Some old visitors to Nazarick returned being harassed by an evil clone of one of their associates. In a plan to seduce the clone and seal her power, CZ participated in a plan to set up an Cat Café where she and Lupusregina used several cats to appeal to the clone and set the mood for the date.
The Pleiades were called into session by Yuri to brainstorm some ideas on what kind of chocolate she should help Aura make for Project Valentine. In her feedback she made a note that the chocolate from Valentine's Day was of a different quality served at the cantina. She acted as one of the judges for the taste test of the confections for the project.
In a meeting to discuss the implementation of an idol plan, it was suggested that CZ be used as their idol as she was very popular with the general maids. Though ultimately the idea was cast in favor of using Shalltear and Aura instead. CZ would also be present at the second campaign for LittleMass, and cheered alongside the general maids and her sisters at Acidity and Alkaline performances.
During the incident where Shalltear was found to be under the incomplete mental influence of a World Item, under the orders of Momonga CZ, Yuri and Pandora's Actor began transferring gold to the Throne Room to make preparations for the fallen Floor Guardian's revival. After the transfer of treasure was done the group were order to stand guard and monitor the Crack in the event of an incursion of the Chaos Beasts.
- In the Web Novel, CZ2I28 Delta was created by Tabula Smaragdina.
- Her favorite food is a drink with extremely high calories. It tastes like strawberries, chocolate, and banana. Interestingly, she shared a chocolate drink with Neia Baraja.
- She is referred to as just CZ by Yuri Alpha in the second Drama CD. Narberal also calls her by CZ in the trailer of the second Drama CD. Thus, it is likely that her other sisters will also call her CZ as well.
- It can be presumed that CZ2I28 Delta was not created by Garnet until or after YGGDRASIL was updated with "Valkyrie's Downfall" patch.
- She's the first NPC who formally makes a friend of an inhabitant of the New World.
- The first two letters of her name CZ are likely in reference to a firearms manufacturer, also referencing the fact her weapons happen to be a firearm.
- In Mass For The Dead at the End of her Chaos Memory, she is gifted with a Spear Needle Pup by Lord Momonga.
- (To Aura and Yuri): "...Ainz-sama is the nicest of all the Supreme Beings because he stayed behind."
- (To Yuri about Neuronist Painkill): "...Neuronist is androgynous and thus has no gender, but why does it call itself 'onee-chan'?"
- (To Neia): "...Chocolate-flavored. Calories are a little high...around 2000, But don’t worry. Eating good food and getting fat is a long-cherished ambition for women, according to a certain great person."
- (To Neia about Ultimate Shooting Star Super): "He lent you an excellent runecrafted weapon. You should spread the word of Ainz-sama's greatness."
- (To Neia): "It is a shame, but also true. Well, I know you must be shocked. I understand very well. Still, that is where you stand now. However, if you work for Ainz-sama, someday you will be able to call him Ainz-sama too. Devote yourself to it."
- (To Neia): "...Neia. It is a predecessor's duty to teach those who come after them."
- (To Neia): "...Don't mention it. One must show kindness to those who know of Ainz-sama's greatness."
- (To Neia): "This I swear in the name of the Supreme One, Ainz Ooal Gown-sama...However, if Neia dies and is resurrected, that still counts as keeping my word, right?"
- (To Neia): "...If you knew how strong the henchman demon was, you and the others might have been afraid and not carried out the operation. But for the sake of Ainz-sama's victory...we must win this battle. That was why I lied."
- (To Neia): "...Good girl. If you were cuter, I'd put a sticker on you. Maybe a furry sticker."
- (To Neia): "...Neia. I like you. Now that I've gotten used to it, your face is quite cute."
