Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Known as the "Roving Wildsword", Haja Zhwan was a general in charge of the Wildcat mercenaries sent to reinforce the Federation of Windurst during the Crystal War.

After the war, as a leader of the most ferocious unit among the Mithra Mercenaries, Haja has been granted a provisional seat on the Parliament of Patriarchs despite a few patriarchs taking issue with her attitude and thinly veiled threats.

It is rumored that her ability to muster such a large number of soldiers from the Olzhiryan Continent (the homeland of the Mithra) could be attributed less to the influence of the leopard coloring on her cheeks, which denote a royal bloodline, and more due to some unknown intention from within the Empire of Aht Urhgan.

Spoilers end here.
