Spoilers for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - A Criminal Past follow!
A native of Detroit, Zenga was going to become a stand-up comedian, but fell foul of an unfortunate series of downward spirals, questionable moral choices and many illegal activities. He was eventually arrested by Adam Jensen in 2022 at The Howie Bazaar Club for sex with underage prostitutes. While attempting to flee, Zenga fell down a flight of stairs and because of that he has held a grudge on Jensen ever since.
Some time after the Aug Incident, Zenga is transferred to the newly opened "Pent House" prison in Arizona along with many other augmented convicts. When Jensen goes to this prison for an undercover mission posing as a convict, Zenga tries to convince other inmates that Jensen is a cop and tries hard to remember Jensen's real name.
Killing him early will not change the story in any way, or bring any consequences to you. However, if you do not kill him, he will appear near the end of the game refusing Adam usage of a mission critical elevator. Talking to him three times finally makes him remember Adam's real name, at which point he goes hostile. He has a magnum revolver firing armor-piercing bullets, and more bullets and a praxis kit if you take him out.
- "You threw me down a flight of stairs. My head hit. Every. Fucking. Step. You don't forget something like that."
