Zylo is a Wolfling warrior optional playable character in the games Shining Force: The Legacy of Great Intention and Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon.

Background[edit | edit source]

Zylo is a wolfling from the mountains outside Bustoke. When Runefaust invaded Bustoke, the soldiers put something in Zylo's drink to make him go crazy. The people of Bustoke had to lock Zylo up for their safety. After Max rescues the men of Bustoke from the Quarry he makes the Lunar Dew to cure Zylo of his madness. Apparently the Lunar Dew cures Zylo immediately. Zylo tells Max he can never repay him for saving him so he joins the Shining Force. The people of Bustoke all have great respect for Zylo and see him as a great ally and protector. One girl tells Max that Zylo is a werewolf warrior and can fight better than anyone in the woods.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Zylo is a born fighter who'd rather fight than talk, as evidenced by his lack of things to say when you talk to him in Headquarters in Resurrection of the Dark Dragon. Regardless, his mannerisms and quietness give an indication that he is polite and supportive.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Zylo is effective for battles with forests and mountains where he excels, though has the movement range to be useful in all level battlefields. He grows in strength quickly while leveling up and due to his end-game potential strength, ends up being a ideal pick for many players. He is best on the front line and is strong enough to go toe to toe with most foes; bosses included.

Due to not using a weapon, if left untrained he falls behind quickly. With no spells or back-up method of raising, it will be difficult to raise him so putting him out in the front line becomes essential once he joins. Due to his movement range, it's very easy to move him ahead of the rest of the frontline, leaving him open to attacks; early game, his defensive stats leave him vulnerable.

Powers & Magic[edit | edit source]

Zylo can cast no spells but he does do a "Spirit-Wolf-Head" attack after he's promoted.
