Zakson (ザクソン Zakuson, Zack in the Japanese version) is an enemy boss character in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. He is the boss of the first map in Chapter 3 in Alm's route. In the original Gaiden, Zakson has no portrait and no dialogue.

Personality Edit

Owing to the minor role he plays, Zakson is not well-developed. However, several aspects of his character can still be gleaned based on the lines he speaks. For one, Zakson can be considered a prideful individual as he tends to taunt his enemies based on their appearance before testing their strengths. A fact is shown when he calls out to the Deliverance that they should be afraid for having a small band of troops to rise up against such a powerful army, and takes it upon himself to deliver the fear of death back into them. One can see that he still refuses to admit his defeat when he mumbles about during his final breath.

Trivia Edit

  • Zakson's portrait displays him wearing red armor as well as having a cape, however, his in-game model strangely appears green instead of red, and he lacks the cape. This could just be due to him being a minor character that the developers felt no need to give him such.
    • This is also a similar case with Wolff (armor color-wise), who is encountered in Celica's route. Ironically, the two share similar features such as the facial hair, voice clips, and battle quotes.
  • The armor pose used for Zakson's portrait is also shared and applied on to Lawson and Magnus, two other bosses encountered in Alm's route. Lawson's is a mere color-swap while Magnus's has a few minor features such as the ragged cape, and a more stretched out shoulder armor.
  • Aside with Wolff, Zakson also shares voice clips with Blake and Jerome, who are both also soldiers from the Rigelian army.
