Jaha is a playable Warrior in the games Shining Force Gaiden II ('Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya) and Shining Force CD.

Background[edit | edit source]

Jaha is a young soldier of Cypress who has adopted the unusual practice of using a pot for his helmet. This apparently offers him the convenience of always having something to cook with. Eric and Luke have been his inseparable companions since before Shining Force Gaiden II, though they seem to spend much of their time together fighting with each other. When not fighting, they are usually spending their time shirking guard duty to goof off.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

In Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya Jaha makes a superb Gladiator. Even when promoted at level 10, his Attack and Defense are about equal to Rohde's, and his HP is much higher. This is especially important if you're playing the U.S. version of the game, as Jaha will often be able to take a level 3 spell that would kill Rohde in one hit.

In Shining Force CD he is far more mediocre. His HP is never quite as impressive as it was in Sword of Hajya, and after level 10 promoted its growth slows to a halt, leaving him with completely average HP for the final stretch. His Defense is above average, but not exceptional. Most importantly, his Attack is by far the lowest of the five Gladiators. With most of the Book 3 enemies, Jaha will do about 2/3 as much damage per hit as the other Gladiators. However, be aware that Jaha must be used for Book 4, so if you plan to tackle it then you should get used to using him.

Though he compares poorly to the other Gladiators thanks to his low Attack, Jaha is one of the game's toughest tanks at level 20 promoted. Never hesitate to stick him in front of weaker members as a shield.

Powers & Magic[edit | edit source]

Jaha has no magic or other special abilities.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • At the castle of Cypress
Eric: "Relax, she's gone! Guard duty is such a bore!"
Jaha: "Yeah! We should've gone with the Prince into battle. Hey, Deanna, come join us."
  • On the ship to Iom
Eric: "What are we going to do?"
Jaha: "We need to take control of this ship. If Natasha was here, she could help us. I wonder where they are?"
  • Book 2 headquarters, not in active party
Jaha: "Everybody laughs at my helmet 'cause it is a pot. But...it's convenient!"
  • When Deanna agrees to take Natasha with him to Iom
Jaha: "This is getting too mushy for me. Deanna, don't forget we're your friends too."
  • Book 3 headquarters, in active party
Jaha: "Eric talks as if I'm his apprentice. But to tell the truth, I'm his mentor."
