Zuberi is an African word which means "strength", and Zuberi's glyph mark is based off of an African symbol also meaning strength. Zuberi's kin hail from a nomadic tribe in the Zebra lands before his parents came to Equestria, and then died when he was a small colt. He was adopted and raised by a pair of traveling merchant earth ponies, who were also killed. Zuberi's virtue is strength, his ability to push through difficult experiences and continue on his path is more than his name, but his spirit which refuses to give up. That is why Zuberi can take a beating, and then walk all the way back to Stableton with only an inch of his life remaining.
