Zana by Haddad062
*Zana – a lascivious Egyptian female agent of Trinity who is responsible for killing Lu Ren.

*Jaag Arnott – a hulking, bald-headed former Judge Magister in-training and one of the last remaining loyalists to Vayne Carudas Solidor. He once looked up to Judge Magister Gabranth until his betrayal and subsequent death, and wants revenge on Vaan for his part in what Jaag personally deems the Archadian Empire’s downfall.

Writer’s note: The Kodaitrons’ animal counterparts are the same as those in the Order of Ancients from Assassin’s Creed Origins named after animals, with their collective name, the Snake, applying to Cob-Ra-Temu to reflect his status as the Kodaitron leader. Their naming scheme pays homage to the Maverick Bosses in the Mega Man X series, and their physical designs take inspiration from super robots from the 1970s-2000s, with Super Sentai-esque helmet designs matching their animal motifs, a la Zyuranger for example, and Go Nagai-ish Robot faces.*Sa’Naakians(サナーク星人, Sanāku-seijin) – a race of anthropomorphic air-breathing sea creatures from the planet Sa’Naak. Many descendants of those who arrived in Ancient Egypt were captured and kept hidden by Trinity, likely because of what their ancestors presumably knew about the Kodaitrons and passed down for generations.
