~ Zac Tieran demands that Clifford be found and brought to him.
Zac Tieran is the main antagonist of the 2021 family comedy film Clifford the Big Red Dog.
He is the selfish owner and CEO of Lyfegro who seeks to exploit Clifford for both fame and money, henceforth serving Clifford's sworn enemy.
He is first seen in his lab running some experiments on animals that are mutated. Then at a meeting, he discovers Clifford on the news. He bribes Emily Elizabeth's former superintendent to with cash to give him the information on Emily Elizabeth's whereabouts. He offered $1 million award for anyone who captures him when he reports that Clifford is "missing".
When he finds Emily Elizabeth, he tries lying to Emily that he found him first, which was false. He tried bribing Emily Elizabeth's uncle, Casey with money in exchange for Clifford. When that doesn't work, he has his assistant microchip Clifford and tried to take him by force. Clifford runs away from him. During the chase he tries to capture him but he failed.
He is then seen capturing Clifford on the news. Taking him to his laboratory to run some tests with his partners, Clifford was then able to escape with the help of Emily, her friends, family, and her former neighbors. He chases after Emily and Clifford through Times Square and Main Street. He manages to catch up to Emily and Casey and orders the police chief to scan Clifford's microchip. The microchip identifies Emily as Clifford's rightful owner, thus exposing Zac's true colors. The chief then informs him that he will now be facing fines for lying to the police and puts him under arrest. It is unknown what happened to Zac's laboratory after his arrest. It could be that it was shut down or sold.
He is described from the film as childish, impatient, deceitful, and conniving. He thought he can successfully run his own company to make a difference in the world, when in reality he has no idea how to. He would resort to bribery and cheating when he doesn't get his way. When his plans fails, he tries to ask his employees to help him out of any situation. This fails as in the end, he owes the city a lot of money for his lying and damages. His assistant, Collette, finally has the courage and tells him that she quit. His male employee Albert, on the other hand, says: "I'll never leave you, sir". It is unknown what happens to his employees in the end but it can be presumed that they decided to seek jobs elsewhere after the company was shut down or sold.
Tieran is the second antagonist of the Clifford the Big Red Dog franchise, the first being George Wolfsbottom from the animated film Clifford's Really Big Movie.
