—Zachariah, in a conversation with Katri
During Ahab's coup against the royal family of Salia, Zacharia received orders from him to murder an infant Princess Maria. He took her into the forest, but instead of fulfilling his orders, he entrusted her to Father Law's care. He later ensured that King Dagnell and Queen Maria were imprisoned instead of killed.
During the game's events, Zacharia is ordered by Ahab to capture the city of Blood from Lionheart. However, he is defeated by Holmes's army and spared by Katri, whom he recognizes as Maria upon seeing her holy markings. Afterwards, he assist Holmes's army in defeating Ahab and reveals the whereabouts of Glaus and Maria.

Zacharia'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).
