Zalbag Mistron is a PC in the campaign The Second Dawn.
Appearance: Tall and strong, with blond hair
Born to a life of privilege as the prince and heir of the city-state of Ivalice, Zalbag has never been content with the idleness practiced by much of nobility. Dedicated always to the betterment of himself in both ability and character, he rose to the command of the Hokuten Knights – Ivalice’s paladin order devoted to Bahamut. Everything he had was taken away in a single day, however, when the lich Golbez and his legions invaded and overwhelmed his home. Though Zalbag would have fought to the death, his father ordered him teleported to safety against his will, along with his beloved sister, Rose. For her sake, he fled his conquered homeland. But the day’s sorrows were not over. Reaching into Zalbag’s very dreams while he slept, Golbez taunted him with despairing visions and the promise of a curse on his family. He awoke to find Rose had vanished without a trace. A prince now reduced to little more than a warrior for hire, he does what good he can, all the while grimly set on a purpose with small hope – to reclaim both his lost sister and his ravaged home.
Zalbag is unflinching in his code of piety and honor, rarely willing to disregard any just law, no matter the end. Despite his personal vendetta, his commitment to use his abilities in service of others does not falter. And while those abilities are considerable, he values the unique contributions of his allies as well, believing that no man triumphs by his own power alone.
Zalbag is acquainted with Valdar thanks to diplomatic embassies to Ivalice by the clerics of Bahamut. Equally devout and dedicated to ideals of compassion and justice, the two have a mutual respect. A short time ago they renewed their acquaintance when Zalbag visited the temple in Fallcrest, and he has confided in Valdar about the fall of his kingdom. The two have performed missions together for the temple, which leads into the first adventure.
