He came from the land of Zexen, but Zamza has his own take on magic. He believes that magic users must also have strong body, and not only in intellect. When he got banned from magic academy, he started to experiment with a magic of his own and as a result he created his Fire Dragon method.
During the Dunan Unification War, when Nanami had a conflict with him and told him he wasn't a valuable asset, he joined the New State Army to prove that his "perfect skills" are needed. He helped Riou on his fight against Highland Army. After the war, he stayed in the New State Army as magic instructor and still as infuriating as ever.
Role in the Game
There are two ways to recruit Zamza:
Zamza is a very well rounded character, with no particular weakness. However, this also means that he does not excel at many skills either. His strongest point is his high amount of hit points, which is needed because of his Equipment Class. Since his personal rune, the Fire Dragon Rune, has infinite attacks, it is adviced to embed a Fire Sealing Rune on Zamza to utilize its power fully, as it damages Zamza as well. Another Rune Zamza has high affinity with is the Fire Rune or Rage Rune, but his mediocre magic stat make him an unfitting choice for a pure magician (This can be remedied through the usage of Stones of Magic obtained through the Rope Climbing Minigame and the Game Over trick).

"What a pain! I went to go ask this guy some questions, and all he did was brag about himself. I couldn't get in a word edgewise! 5 long hours....."
"If you could just fix it so that his 'Fire Dragon Rune' didn't cause him damage every time..."
- A fantastic letter
I'm strong and I can use magic. I know you must be happy to have me on your side, but I don't like it when you take me out of the party. Got it? Zamza
- My second great letter
This castle is too hot. Also there are too many people. Why don't you ask some of the less important people to leave?
- Fantastic letter #3
"He claims to be a vegetarian, but I heard he's just dieting. The powerful and conceited magician, Zamza!!!"
