Zoe Graystone from Battlestar Galactica played by Alessandra Torresani.

Zoe Graystone is a fictional female Human student in the Battlestar Galactica television series who was played on screen by Alessandra Torresani. Zoe Graystone is the daughter of wealthy industralist Daniel Graystone and doctor Amanda Graystone. Zoe Graystone, Lacy Rand and Ben Stark all skip school and take the Mavlev train to the space port so that they can run away and start a new life on Gemenon.

Life in the Virtual World

Zoe created a virtual avatar of herself in the Virtual world which she showed to Lacy Rand, her best friend. Zoe had the same mannerisms and memories as the now dead Zoe Graystone. Zoe's father Daniel Graystone found out about the avatar and downloaded it into the memory of Cylon prototype U87. When the prototype went wrong, Daniel believed he had deleted the avatar.

Over the course of the series, he believed that the Avatar wasn't deleted but somehow is still inside the U87 robot. He has tried to get the robot to reveal the avatar but all attempts had failed. He got U867 to take a gun, dismantle it and then put it back together many times, knowing all too well that Zoe hated guns but she kept doing it.

Daniel got the U87 to shoot at the dog which the prototype did without flinching. Zoe reveals to Lacy's avatar that she only fired the gun because the U87 knew the gun was not loaded because of the weight of the gun.

Daniel put U87 in a ring of fire, knowing that many years ago, Zoe just managed to escape from a house fire. All the attempts failed.

Lacy Rands Friendship

Lacy Rand was Zoe's best friend and Lacy is the only one that knows that Zoe is in the machine. Zoe tells Lacy that she needs to get the robot to Gemenon where they can be free to do whatever they want.

Lacy promises to get her friend to Gemenon even though its a massive robot that is heavy. Lacy gets involved with the the terrorist organisation 'Soldiers of the One' in order to fulfil her friends wish.


Philomon is a technician who helps Daniel Graystone out with the U87 both in the lab at the Graystone's house. Philomon is useless with women and his on-line profile doesn't seem to attract anyone. Zoe's avatar hacks into the computers and creates a virtual female for Philomon to interact with it virtual space. When they both meet in the virtual world, the only disguise that Zoe has is glasses. it doesn't go unnoticed by Philomon but Zoe is able to convince him that her character Rachel is someone else.

When they meet for a second date, Philomon takes them both for a flight simulator where they have to bail and make it to dry land. Zoe plants the idea in Philomons head that the U87 should explore and get more freedom. This will allow Zoe to escape.

When the order is sent down to terminate U87, Zoe reveals herself to Philomon and kills him unintentionally by knocking him against a wall. The U87 escapes in a van persuaded by the police and army. U87 is disabled but Zoe is able to upload her avatar into the virtual world.

Instead of breaking down the U87, Daniel has the robot boxed. Daniel still believes that the Cylon has Zoe Avatar in it and will hopefully one day get the robot to reveal itself.

Into the Virtual Caprica

With her robot body now dead, Zoe inhabits the same virtual Caprica that Tamara Adama does and sets out to find her. When the two eventually meet, Tamara knows who Zoe is and that Tamara holds Zoe responsible. Knowing that Zoe can't release, Tamara get people to beat her to the inch of her life as revenge for the Mavlev train bombing.


Sister Clarice Willow had led her followers in Soldiers of the One into believing that by blowing themselves up at the Pyramid Sports Stadium, their souls would enter and live on in the virtual world. Clarice called the move Apotheosis. Sister Clarice Willow on finding out about Zoe's avatar set about finding the Avatar by getting close to Amanda Graystone.

When the terrorist strike eventually happened, the avatars of the failed terrorists were uploaded to a virtual heaven. Zoe arrived and destroyed the virtual world and killed off the avatars of the terrorists. The terrorist attack failed because Zoe's father Daniel knew about the attack and used Cylon Centurions to take out the terrorists.
