Spear and shield
Zarāvant (ザラーヴァント) is a secondary character from The Heroic Legend of Arslan and a playable character in Arslan: The Warriors of Legend.
Like the majority of the aristocrats within the narrative, Zarāvant is introduced as a high-and-mighty mass of arrogance who brags, quibbles and stammers to get his way. Time spent within Arslan's ranks humbles him greatly and leads him to consider the merits of human differences. He then considers using his strength and ingenuity for rehabilitation efforts. Zarāvant is highly self conscious of his baby-like face and grows his sideburns out to draw attention away from it.
Zarāvant initially distrusts Jaswant, considering the Sindhuran as an outsider and unwelcome addition to their ranks. It isn't until he befriends Jimsa —another foreigner within Arslan's ranks— that he reflects on his poor and hypocritical behavior. His apology to Jaswant is genuine and the first step towards Zarāvant's maturity.
