Origin: South Window
Zamji was an innkeeper at South Window during the period when Neclord attacked North Window. He used to be a member of South Window's elite unit, the "Black Lions," and fought in numerous battles between South Window and the Scarlet Moon Empire. He has since retired and opened an small pub/inn inside the walls of South Window.
During the political turmoil that was caused between Two River and South Window following allegations that North Window was destroyed by Two River, the possibility of war loomed over the two city-states. Under that political climate, Viktor "rolled into" Zamji's bar, drunken and disillusioned from the fact that all his family was killed. Zamji rescues Viktor from a bar brawl where he was outnumbered, and offers him a job to help out with the bar. Zamji then learns that Viktor is working with Anabelle to uncover the truth behind the destruction of North Window. Zamji helps out by collecting information through his connection with the military. Soon, the three realize that weapon merchants were behind the whole scheme. The three raid their hideout, and Zamji proved to be a formidable fighter, taking on two enemies at once with his spear. Despite his leg injury from battles long ago, Zamji dispatches his second foe with a powerful throw of his spear. After that incident, Zamji returns to running his pub.
Position: Magic Instructor
< No one knows where Zamza came from, but Zamza has his own take on magic. He believes that magic users must also be strong in body, and not only in intellect. Due to this approach, he was banned from the magic academy he was in, and started to experiment with a magic of his own. This is how he created his Fire Dragon method, where he fuses magic with his punches in order to unleash powerful blows onto enemies.
Due to his originality he is highly narcissistic, and thinks that he is incredibly powerful and beautiful. However, he actually is indeed powerful, but it is hard to understand his power, to say the least.
Zamza gets involved with the Dunan Unification War early on, and proved to be a powerful force within the army. For that reason, Shu made him the magic instructor. This was actually due to the fact that Zamza had the most normal personality out of all the other magic users (such as Luc and Viki). He happily accepts this position, thinking that it is a logical and obvious choice given his own greatness.
