The Maze Runner Wiki

"Yeah, they took Zart and a few others."

Zart was the Keeper of the Track-hoes/Gardeners, and was one of the first Keepers that Thomas worked with. Sometimes, the other Gladers call him Zart the Fart. It is possible that he was named after the genius composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.


The Maze Runner

In The Maze Runner, Zart is first introduced not only as the Keeper of the Track-hoes, but also as the only Glader willing to answer any question, despite the fact that he is not really talkative.

He always appears at Gatherings, and was the one to lead the Banishment of Ben. In Thomas' Gathering for what to do with him, he supports Thomas for saving Minho and Alby in the Maze, thinking that he should not be punished. On the second day of the Griever attacks, he fell victim and didn't make it back.
