Portrait zhara fe14.png

A renowned swordsman who fell from grace and is now a thief.







Starting class




Zhara (Japanese: ヴァスハラ Vasuhara) is a Nohrian bandit, and the capturable boss of paralogue 21 of Fire Emblem Fates. A former renowned swordsman who has turned to thievery, Zhara is part of a band of bandits making their second attack on a walled city between the Nohrian castle and capital, only to get repelled by Soleil and her loyal mercenaries with help from Corrin and his/her army.

Due to lack of characterization on Zhara's part, and despite his status as the chapter's boss, it is unknown if Zhara is actually the leader of the bandits, nor is it known if Zhara took part in the first attack on the walled city that needed only Soleil's band to successfully repel.

As a capturable boss, Zhara can be captured by Niles or Orochi and placed into the My Castle's prison if one is present, then recruited into the player's army as a bonus unit from there.

Battle quote

You don't know me. I don't know you. But before I was a bandit...? I was a swordsman. The best! Come on—I'll test my blade on you.
— Zhara, in paralogue 21.

Death quote

I guess...I failed the test...
— Zhara, in paralogue 21.


  • As the paralogue chapter in question is first accessed in conditions where most child paralogues not playable in all three campaigns scale their encounterable units, bosses included, two levels and similar scaling conditions appear to be applied to the chapter in question, it is possible that Zhara's level is internally stored as 10, then scaled up to at least level 12 by the time of his initial possible appearance.
  • Zhara is one of two bosses in Fates's paralogues who neither visibly stop their level scaling upon reaching a certain point nor reach their highest possible level cap even at the final possible position of chapter 27 (the other being the Faceless boss of paralogue 11).
