Role in GameEdit
Rohzen is one of the three Strega who voiced his opposition against Relics eleven years ago. After being forced to go into hiding, he appears once more to gather any remaining Strega and rally them against the tyrant Zauber. In the beginning of the story, Rohzen acts as Gradd and Celia's ally who disappears at select times to attend to other matters.
While traveling with Celia, Rohzen recognizes Gradd as a fellow Strega and patiently recruits him to their cause. He then convinces his two companions to join forces with the resistance while seeking out more allies on his own. After reuniting with them, he later informs Celia of her brother's whereabouts while Gradd and Tieme are away.
Midway through the story, he reveals his true colors as an informant and cohort of Zauber. Scheming to be the only Strega in the world, Rohzen was actually the one who broke the seal over the Relics and instructed Zauber on how to use them. To get rid of his competition, Rohzen systematically plotted to kill anyone he deemed to be in his way.
Allegedly, it was he who killed Milena's father even though Zauber was the one who gave him the order to do so. After the plot to kill Anjie fails, Zauber feels that Rohzen has served his purposes and orders his swift death. Rohzen cryptically utters that Zauber would soon share his fate before he dies.
Seemingly a wise and patient elder, Rohzen's true nature is that of a selfish power-hungry man whose sole aim is to become the only living Strega in the entire world. His slippery character is what allowed him to avoid being held responsible for causing the confusion eleven years ago. Cold and calculating, he passes off his lies as sagely advice to fool his companions into trusting him while working behind the scenes to plot their demise. By gathering enough Strega into one place, he could easily take their lives by ambush or subterfuge. Ironically, he was betrayed by the very man who he had supported from the shadows for eleven years.
- "I've still got it."
- "Not in a million years."
- "I really must thank you. You've been so helpful. The Relics, the Imperial Family, the Strega Hunt, I don't know how I could have done it without you, hahahaha!"
- "Surely you haven't forgotten. Think back, what happened to the first Strega who gave the Relics to Man? Come now, you must remember. He was killed, by men like me! Really you should have paid more attention."
- "Gasp... You... you will share my fate..."

Rohzen's Strega power involves conjuring bolts of lightning from his hands releasing them out against his opponents. The projectiles he sends out tend to travel rather slowly, yet their homing qualities are practically the most accurate in the game. This helps ensure that he'll be able to hit opponents within a certain distance. Another one of his advantages is being able to cast spells while moving with ease. Though his dashing ability is the slowest among the rest of the cast, players are less likely to use it other than to shorten the gap between him and the opponent. Overall, Rohzen is a spell-type character who can make full use of his repertoire of attacks in mid-range combat.
