Before Queen Metaria brain-washed the Shitennou to work as her evil agents, they were Prince Endymion's royal guards. In his past life, Zoicite was an enigmatic piano player and much of his powers are still attached to his musical capabilities. He was the most loyal of Endmyion's guards.
Zoicite is the third of the Shitennou and is second-lowest in rank (despite being younger than Jadeite, who is the lowest in rank). He is the least mature and most effeminate of all the Shitennous. Zoicite is deliciously evil, impatient, and has the wickedest laugh you ever heard. He manages the Dark Kingdom's European Division and is named after the mineral zoicite.
Zoicite enters the manga in much the same way as his predecessor, first mocking Nephrite and then crying out in anguish when he is killed. Seeking the Silver Crystal, he uses news reports and press releases to make the population of Tokyo help with his search, then resorts to taking their energy when they fail. He very nearly defeats the Sailor Senshi but is killed in a surprise attack by Sailor Venus.
In the anime, Zoicite is introduced along with Nephrite, ridiculing him in each episode and finally orchestrating his death. He is more successful than either of his predecessors, obtaining all seven fragments of the Silver Crystal (which would combine to form the Giuzinshou) and very nearly succeeds in killing Sailor Moon, but Tuxedo Mask takes the hit for her. The two are then revealed to be Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion. Unbeknown to him, Queen Beryl is in love with Endymion and, infuriated, kills Zoicite in punishment for injuring him.
Zoicite is much more effeminate in the anime than in the manga, often using female disguises or surrounding himself with flower petals. As in the manga, he and Kunzite work closely together, but in this case they are also involved in a homosexual relationship, and Zoicite literally clings to him for support and guidance.
