Marty the zebra

I had recently watched Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, a DreamWorks classic if you were born around 2000. I gained inspiration for this side quest from my favorite character in the movie, Marty the zebra. Marty gained my interest in the movie because unlike the hundreds of zebras in the movie that are white with black stripes, Marty is the only one that is black with white stripes. This distinct feature of Marty that allowed his friend, Alex the lion, to find Marty in a massive herd, which allowed them to resolve their movie-long contentious conflict regarding identity and individuality. Also, he’s voiced by Chris Rock.
