Vahriz (ヴァフリーズ) is a secondary character in The Heroic Legend of Arslan and Arslan: The Warriors of Legend. Known as Andragoras's best warrior, he is the commander-in-chief, Bahman's friend and Arslan's mentor. Prior to the fighting at Atropatene Plains, he sympathizes with his deposed nephew by giving him the task of protecting Arslan. He personally escorts Andragoras during their disastrous retreat. When Silvermask confronts them, the veteran duels him to stall for his liege's escape. Vahriz is killed in one blow; his decapitated head is displayed as a threat to residents in the capital.
In Hiromu Arakawa's adaptation, Vahriz is Arslan's military instructor. He is more sympathetic to Arslan and Daryun, acting as a paternal figure for both characters.
Vahriz is strong, wise and civil. He personally agrees with Arslan and Daryun's practicality, but his modus operandi is loyalty to the end. Nothing could make him abandon his sworn duty to protect the king.
