Princess Minerva, what brings you here? You’ve left your post: not very wise. Might I remind you, poor conduct on your part could have repercussions on how...comfortable...your sister remains.
— Zharov, to Minerva

Zharov (Japanese: ジューコフ Zhukov) is a Grustian general, and the boss of Chapter 10 of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light and its remakes, Mystery of the Emblem Book 1 (where it is Chapter 8) and Shadow Dragon. Zharov is the leader of a group charged with keeping a Macedonian princess hostage, and blackmailing said princess's older sister into allying Macedon with Grust. Having been tipped off by one of Minerva's underlings, the Archanean League eventually arrive, rescue the hostage, unravel the supposed Grust/Macedon alliance, and eventually defeat Zharov.
