Here dying, join my legion of undeath. Your blood, the roses on unhallow'd graves!
Zalera () is the third Lucavi demon whom Ramza Beoulve must fight in Final Fantasy Tactics. He is associated with the Gemini auracite and has possessed Marquis Elmdore of Limberry. Zalera is assisted by two Ultima Demons, Celia and Lettie, who are disguised as human women.
Story[edit | edit source]
Ramza fights Zalera at Limberry Castle after fighting Elmdore once at Riovanes Castle. Ramza must fight his way past Celia and Lettie to gain entry into the castle and face Elmdore who is backed by the two. During the battle, if Celia and Lettie are killed, they will return to their Ultima Demon form. Once the marquis is weakened, he retreats into the undercroft where he transforms into Zalera. Before Ramza can reach the undercroft, he must fight a resurrected Argath to enter.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Zalera's job is Angel of Death (PS)/Death Seraph (WotL). He has moves similar to Cúchulainn, but is more powerful, and calls on several undead units to aid him. Ramza gains the aid of Meliadoul Tengille as a guest during this battle, and once Zalera is defeated, he dies and drops the Gemini Stone.
