Heretic scion who wrapped the world in dark energies, seeking to take the souls of all living things unto himself. Created in opposition to Emet-Selch, Angel of Truth, and scion of light. Originally tasked with the judging of men upon their deaths, his soul was tainted by the curses of those who raged against the heavens, and seizing one of the gods' servants, a shamaness, as a hostage, he rebelled against his creators. Even now, in defeat, he clutches the shamaness to him in his right arm, and with the aid of her death-wail does he summon the soul of darkness to do his bidding.

Final Fantasy XII

Zalera is an optional Esper found in the Barheim Passage, his existence being foreshadowed by NPCs mentioning hearing a woman's screams from deep inside the tunnel. He fights by summoning Dead Bones to attack and using status attacks that hit dependent on the levels of the party members. If the player cannot defeat Zalera within five minutes they are teleported out of the room and must begin the battle over.

Zalera's license costs 25 LP, and he requires one Mist Charge to summon.


Template loop detected: Template:Video Kill: inflicts instant death on any enemy that does not have the Safety passive ability. An enemy slain by Kill does not yield Experience Points, License Points or loot.

Condemnation: is Zalera's ultimate attack. Zalera warps the enemy to another world, and opens his right arm to reveal the shamaness who screams, calling a storm of dark clouds from which souls pour out and create a storm of twisters. The attack instantly kills all enemies with less than 9,999 max HP (6,999 HP for those with the Damage Resist augment), and those with more are hit with non-elemental damage that can break the damage limit.

In Final Fantasy XII International, Zalera no longer casts Holy or Shock. Instead he has Cura, Warp, and Death. He no longer absorbs Holy-elemental attacks. Condemnation's damage is randomly generated.
