"I'm your Darcsen agent. Name's Zaka. Nice to meet you."
—Zaka, Valkyria Chronicles 3

Zaka (ザカ Zaka?) is the Darcsen tank commander of Squad 7. As a Darcsen, he has had to become used to many racial insults that are thrown at him.


Valkyria Chronicles

Zaka was held in an Imperial work camp where he and his people were forced to work in the dangerous ragnite mines and factories under brutal conditions imposed by Gregor. He was instrumental in helping Squad 7 in the Fouzen raid as an inside contact and joined the group shortly after the battle.

Since he worked in a factory from an early age, his knowledge of machinery is considerable. He also has combat experience as a tank operator, and is now appointed as the Tank Commander of Squad 7 riding on the tank known as "Shamrock".

After his service in the militia, Zaka returned home to establish the Fouzen Toy Factory to bring smiles back to Gallia's war orphans. The Enigma Box, a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle with a hundred possible shapes and currently the hottest toy in the market, is of his design.
