—Kiros Seagill

Ward Zabac is a temporary playable character in Final Fantasy VIII.

Ward is a very strong and intimidating person, yet he is very gentle when he is off the battlefield. He uses a very large harpoon weapon, which he throws at his enemies. He fights alongside his friends Laguna and Kiros in the Galbadian Army and later quits the army when they do.

At the start of disc two, Zell's experience with Ward helps tremendously with their escape from D-District Prison.


Appearance and Personality

Standing at seven feet, Ward is a tall and intimidating looking person. However, underneath his rough exterior lies a wise, observant mind. He wears a blue handkerchief over his head and sports a scar going across the left side of his face from an undisclosed injury. He also possesses light facial stubble.

Despite his intimidating persona, Ward is a very caring person, who would help a friend whenever they need it. Although this usually results in him being dragged along on one of Laguna's poorly thought-out schemes.

As a young adult, Ward enlisted with the Galbadian army where he served with friends Laguna and Kiros. Using a heavy harpoon that was almost as large as himself, his attacks proved very powerful and effective. In his last mission with the Galbadian Army, he gets lost with Laguna and Kiros and accidentally end up in the Centra Excavation Site where the Esthar Army was excavating the Lunatic Pandora. During their escape he receives a wound that results in the loss of his ability to speak. After leaving the Galbadian Army he becomes a janitor in the D-District Prison, which Zell later has flashbacks about. Eleven months later, when Ellone was kidnapped by Estharian Soldiers, he accompanies Laguna and Kiros to Esthar to rescue her. They get in to some trouble along the way, however, participating in a movie to earn some money they encounter a real Ruby Dragon, which they then have to fight off. During their adventures Laguna gets separated from Kiros and Ward however the three later reunite and continue on their journey to Esthar, where they rescue Ellone and defeat Sorceress Adel. Laguna becomes President of Esthar, and Kiros and Ward become Laguna's advisers.

In Battle

Massive Anchor


In battle, Ward wields a giant harpoon. In battle, he throws the harpoon at an enemy, and then runs up to retrieve it for another attack.

Limit Break

Massive Anchor allows Ward to throw the harpoon into the air and jumps after it. Once caught, he rides it back down into the ground, causing a massive shock wave that damages all enemies. It is very similar to a Dragoon's Jump attack.
