Depiction in the series

Zephyr Breeze "guess who's home!" S6E11
Zephyr Breeze appears in the season six episode Flutter Brutter, introduced as Fluttershy's younger brother. He is depicted as a chronic slacker who freeloads off of his parents after dropping out of mane therapy school.

When first introduced, Zephyr is stated to have pursued various interests before quickly giving up on them, including mane therapy and sculpting. Unable to support himself, he frequently moves in and out of his parents' home in Cloudsdale, much to the frustration of his older sister. He is also heavily infatuated with Rainbow Dash, constantly flirting with her under the narcissistic belief that she is obsessed with him.

When Zephyr moves back in with his parents, his presence serves as a nuisance and burden to their way of life. He moves their knickknacks out of the way to make room for his own, and he re-purposes his father's cloud collection storage house as his art studio/meditation garden. When Fluttershy confronts him about this, her parents take her side, and Zephyr tearfully takes his leave—only to move in with Fluttershy soon afterward.

Though his presence in her cottage is just as cumbersome as before, Fluttershy allows Zephyr to stay on the condition that he get a job. However, his attempts at being employed usually involve him slacking off and getting others to do the work for him or otherwise quitting without even trying. As a result, Fluttershy kicks him out of her cottage, and he goes to live by himself in the Everfree Forest.

Incapable of living on his own, Zephyr eventually confesses to his sister that his unwillingness to try stems from a crippling fear of failure. Fluttershy convinces him that sometimes one has to do things, even if one might fail. With the support of Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, Zephyr pursues mane therapy once again and graduates from mane therapy school.

In season eight, Zephyr Breeze makes a brief cameo appearance in Las Pegasus in Grannies Gone Wild.

In season nine, Zephyr appears as a member of the Canterlot Royal Guard in Twilight's Seven. He is seen guarding one of the bricked-up secret passages into the castle. Rarity has Rainbow distract him while she removes the bricks. Zephyr is later fired for leaving his post unguarded, and it is revealed that he was specifically hired by Princess Luna as part of Spike's plan.

In The Ending of the End - Part 2, Zephyr Breeze appears taking shelter with his parents and other Pegasi in Cloudsdale as the city closes itself off from the other pony races. In The Last Problem, Zephyr attends Twilight Sparkle's coronation ceremony. He also briefly appears in Fluttershy's group shot during The Magic of Friendship Grows.
