—Zeffren talking to Haar
Zeffren (ゼフレン Zefren) is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn of Dragonmaster class. He is a member of Begnion's Holy Dracoknights who serve the Begnion Senate directly instead of the Empress.
Zeffren leads a group of imperial Dracoknights in an attempt to kidnap Leanne, However, his plans are delayed with Nealuchi being present as her guardian. He is soon confronted by Queen Elincia (who assumes the role of a patrolling soldier) and Marcia for crossing Crimea's borders and engages in an all out assault against them after refusing a peaceful proposal to return to their borders. The battle concludes on the defeat of Zeffren's army, and he either retreats from combat or is killed.
According to Haar, he was previously on patrol in Begnion's borders before his actions led him to Crimea's skies.
Despite his minor role, Zeffren is proven to be a corrupt and greedy individual. Willing to take extreme measures in making irrational decisions by crossing borders to obtain what he wants. A fact is shown as he attempts to capture Leanne and possibly selling her off due to her race being considered a rare species.

Zeffren: Now, begone with you! The skies and the heron are ours! I can't wait to see your corpse smashed across Crimea's landscape!
- Vs. Elincia
Zeffren: You... You Crimeans seriously believe you can withstand the might of Begnion?!
Elincia: Crimea takes this sort of encroachment seriously. We will not overlook invaders in our domain. Release your weapons, and apologize for your discourtesy... Only then will we lower our own.
Zeffren: You have quite a mouth on you... I won't be addressed in that tone by anyone. It's time to end this farce.
- Vs. Haar
Haar: Well... If it isn't Zeffren. What brings the dracoknights into Crimean skies?
Haar: Why couldn't you just stay on patrol? Saw a pretty little heron and just had to have her, is that it? I never could decide if you were more greedy or more corrupt. Stupid was never in the question, though.
Zeffren: Who do you think you are?! You're a traitor, just like Shiharam! The draconknights spit on your name!
Haar: ...Do they now? Well, here's your chance to try the real thing.
