“Ride with the Zaulia!” — Zaulia

The Zaulia are a band of warrior women who make their home in the Jungle. They ride the fierce fire-breathing Metal Beasts into battle, which only they can tame.


After the members of the Black Tear Rebellion drank from the Sea of Black Tears and went insane, they attempted to wipe out the Zaulia, but Riggnarok, the sole member of the Rebellion to resist the temptation of the Sea's power, sided against his former allies in defence of the Zaulia, leading them to victory over the Tear Drinkers. When they were overwhelmed in battle, they would unleash the Blood Vomit in the Altar of Blood.

  • If the player talks to a Zaulia member after the "Dry Ice, Wet Graves", she will say how they reproduce in an all-female tribe. She will say "when it is time for our mating the men are gathered and must survive a series of challenges and then endure a sacred ritual of-" before being cut off by another Zaulia.
