Dr. Imran Zere is a major character in Dying Light.
Dr. Imran Zere was a scientist working on a cure for the infection. His stays inside his camper near the Tower guarded by many survivors and is a safe zone at night. Crane initially meets Dr. Zere in Awakening where he gives him his Antizin dose after his first seizure during Rahim's parkour tutorial.
Dr. Zere had conducted an experiment which resulted the creation of Bolters sometime during the outbreak, having consumed a "bait".
Later in the game, his safe zone is attacked and set on fire by Rais's bandits after Crane steals dynamite from Rais. The bandits kill everyone except for Zere, who they kidnap. When Crane saves him and asks him about the bolter-tissue sample to deliver to his co-worker in the Cauldron, Zere explains to him that he gave the samples to Jade before he was kidnapped, but before the two can leave, they are ambushed by Rais and his bandits. He is then taken hostage while Crane is put into the Pit. After dealing with the infected, Crane finds Zere fatally stabbed with a knife into his stomach and tells him to save the survivors of Harran before succumbing to his wound.
