De Farscape: Rhapsody in Blue aprendemos que Zhaan foi preso por um assassinato por motivação política, o de seu mentor Bitaal que havia tomado o poder de Delvia em um golpe, convidando os Guardiões da Paz.
Zhaan: (whispering) Release your mind Bitaal. Surrender your demons. For I have others replace them. (and she begins to inflict pain on him)
Bitaal: (arching his head back as his hands fall away from her) What are you doing?
Zhaan: (sobbing) Avenging the lives you have ruined. The world you put at risk.
Bitaal: (screaming in agony as he dies in her hands) No! Zhaan! ZHAAAAAAAN! (Zhaan cries out in grief)
(cut back to the Delvian temple-ship and present reality)
John: What the hell was that?
Zhaan: The crime I was imprisoned for.
John: (he staggers away from her, horrified) You - You killed the guy you were having sex with?
