Zhamo is introduced early in the game as a young unjaded warrior. He is pure to the point where he is almost naive in the way he thinks of life and its problems causing his fragile bond with hardened Eluca to become strained. He is soon revealed to be of royalty and dreams of becoming the next Divine King of his kingdom, determined to bring peace and prosperity to his people.
After the initial shock of being transported to the Ark fades away and everyone begins formally introducing themselves to each other, Eluca and Zhamo are shown with an already-established bond of respect and loyalty. Eluca believes that Zhamo is destined to rule his country as the King. Zhamo makes it clear that Eluca is the head warrior for his country and wants her at his side as his Queen.
