“Lady Maria, please forgive me. I could not refuse my Lord Ahab's orders, and thus I helped the destruction of the Salia Royal House... This sin is without redemption.”
—Zachariah, in a conversation with Katri
Zachariah (ザカリア Zekaria) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is a general in the service of the kingdom of Salia under the command of Ahab. When Ahab attempted his coup against the Salian royal family, Zachariah smuggled out Princess Maria in secret to protect her from Ahab and later ensured that the king and queen were imprisoned instead of killed.
During the storyline, he is sent by Ahab to capture the city of Blood from Lionheart, but is defeated by Holmes and his army and spared by Katri, whom he quickly recognizes as Maria. Following this, he joins Holmes's army and aids them in the battle against Ahab, revealing King Glaus and Queen Maria after the battle.
Zachariah's stats are typical General stats - high Strength, Defense and HP, with average Skill and Speed. He is a solid wall when first obtained, as well as being a good filler character in the endgame. However, he is hit hard by his low growths, lack of skills, Big Shield aside, and low movement with no way to increase it without using items. Ultimately he will become worse than both Norton (due to movement and better offence) and Billford (due to his skills).
“Fine, I shall be your opponent!”
