There's one thing that sets Zeetha apart from every other woman so far in the tale, and presumably most people that Higgs would have run into. She's Skiffandrian.
And there's something special about Skiffandria. Only a few know it - Barry knew about it and told some tales to young Agatha, Lucrezia at some point found out it and thought sending Klaus there would be a one-way trip, so far as we know Klaus only knows about it from having been taken there against his will - and his reaction to seeing Zeetha was to lose his marbles a bit.
So, maybe what he needs is a woman from Skiffandria. Why? Maybe he's from there and wants to go home but can't until given permission by someone in the blood line. Maybe there's something different about them that can undo a problem of his. Maybe they're the only women hardy enough to survive being the mate of someone like Higgs (Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex).
Or it may have nothing to do with that, it's that he's been living so long that he knows instantly what he needs. Or since there's time travel and visions floating about in this world, he's seen her from years back and has been waiting. But the Skiffandrian Checkov's gun has been sitting around for a while, maybe it needs firing.
