This wiki is very much under construction. The original wiki was set to be shut down and the wiki was largely mirrored to a Fandom-based version, though most of the reference images had not yet been copied over. This migration was put on hold when it appeared the original wiki could in fact be retained, however the old wiki was lost in its entirety when the server was among the many taken down by a massive series of cyberattacks on data centers during early February, 2023. It is now being rebuilt with the launch of Hel. Sorry if it's a little messy right now!

Appeared in chapters 40 44 47 50 52 54
Appearance & Personality
Zair is feminine looking. He has light coloured hair and a single red streak and a couple of hair decorations. He finds life very comical.
Zair is a member of the Brawlers squad sent to infiltrate and capture a Vel'Sharen building. After their success, he is seen hanging out with the other soldiers where during Ariel's outburst at the dishonourable actions of her fellow soldiers, he took Ariel's side. After the explosion set of by Malag'nafein, he was captured alongside his comrades. He and the other prisoners managed to successfully took out the Slaver's district from the inside after Ariel manages to free them. After the battle, Jak'iaah Sarghress brought Zair with her for the next duty.
Assaulting the Council Dome
He was reassigned with Durlyn to help conquer the Council Dome under Jak’iaah. They encounter Vierynda'diira who joins their squad after telling them the rest of her squad is dead. Vierynda'diira shows them a nether gate that was carved into a poor child. He pulls Durlyn to safety after he got hit by a sniper. He and Jak managed to storm the Council Dome alongside other soldiers where his squad leader tries calling out for Sarv'swati only to be met with no answer.
The Puppeteer Incident
Zair was among the other Sarghress troops relaxing in a tavern, sharing stories about their recent experiences during the District War. He spoke of the impromptu infiltration mission after the squad was captured and taken to the Slaver's district, where they managed to subdue the Sharen overseers and free the slave soldiers, claiming that they had been two squads versus a thousand troops.<ref>Chapter 47, page 57</ref> Later, when Faen admonished Ariel about her habit of volunteering for dangerous missions, Zair cheerfully exclaimed that he would volunteer for any mission that she was assigned to.
Sarghress Civil War
Zair appeared at the Sarghress sparring grounds with Durlyn, where the two greeted Ariel upon her arrival, prior to her spar with Quain'tana. Upon noting Faen's absence, he questioned where she was, drawing a chiding comment from Durlyn. A short time later, Ariel was challenged by Riviel, who insulted the Sarghress heir, specifically regarding her rank among the clan. Zair and the other nearby Sarghress came to Ariel's defense, with Zair telling Ariel to "kick her ass." After Ariel defeated Riviel in a spar, Jak'iaah shooed Zair and the rest of the onlookers away, ordering them back to their quarters.<ref>Chapter 50, page 58</ref>
Days later, Quain'tana's healing session failed, and the Ill'haress went on a paranoia-filled rampage throughout the Sarghress Fortress, feeling that her subordinate Suu'be had been plotting against her. At the end of the confrontation, Ariel arrived on the scene and attempted to quell the dispute. Suu'be took hold of Ariel, attempting to intimidate her into staying out of the fight; Zair and others appeared among the crowd of onlookers, telling Suu'be that she had no right to touch the Little Wolf.<ref>Chapter 50, page 209</ref> A crossbow bolt barely missed Ariel, which spurred Quain'tana into one final act, which was to snap Suu'be's neck.
In the aftermath of the incident, Ariel was escorted to Machike'shikumo, along with Pelan and Octarya, until the threat against their lives was over. Zair was among the Sarghress who escorted the Little Wolf, and would take up residence permanently at the colony as part of Machike's defense forces.
Biography - Arc III
The Hermionne Invasion
During the defense of Machike'Shikumo, Zair fought alongside Ariel, Bal'diira and Durlyn to save Kau and Slyand'iss from Hermionne invaders after their golem suits were knocked prone and overwhelmed.<ref>Chapter 52, page 12</ref> After Faen also joined the fight and used her empathy to turn the tide of the battle to the defenders' favor, Zair was quick to praise her efforts.
The Bombardment of Machike'shikumo
After failing to convince Ariel to accompany them to Felde in order to submit the clan to the control of the Sharen Alliance, the airship controlled by the Nidraa'chal proceeded to bombard Machike with their mana cannons. The remaining colonists and defenders retreated further into the underworld, taking refuge in the event that the airship returned. Their concerns were found to be true, as the airship began to pursue them. The defenders prepared wire traps, which managed to slow them down, until the airship returned for a second attempt, this time carrying an assortment of titanic boulders, which were dropped down onto the city below.
Zair survived the second bombardment, and located Durlyn amidst the confusion. They then located Ariel and Faen, and asking the young leader what her orders were. She quickly told them to collect as many of the defenders as they could find, and to shoot flares into the air in order to attract the airship's attention.<ref>Chapter 52, page 45</ref> Afterwards, Zair and Durlyn regrouped with the rest of the remaining defenders, and waited until they were joined by Ariel again.
Escape to Shashi
The defenders led the airship on a chase deeper towards the center of the underworld, leaving dummies formed of stone behind to slow down their pursuers. They soon found their way to Shashi, a research colony that was studying the moon fragments embedded into the very center of the caverns.
After striking a deal with the leader of Shashi for rest and shelter, Kel'noz Val'Sarghress formed a plan to take control of the airship after it docked at the outpost. With help from the colony's experimental golem suits in exchange for exclusive rights to the airship for Shashi's researchers, the Machike defenders managed to board the ship in an attempt to take control of it.
