Zen“ Not a great year for flowers. Not enough wind. ”
Zen worked as the gardener at Qlon Temple. He specialised in landscaping and was particularly adept at blooming colourful flowers. He was a good-natured, quiet sort who preferred to quietly work on maintain his flowers in the background. His tenderness shined through his hands and the care with which he raised his flowers.
He agreed to join the Toran Liberation Army when asked by the hero but first requested some red, blue and yellow flower seeds so he could finish his business at the temple. After planting the seeds, Zen joined the Liberation Army. At Toran Castle, Zen was heard to remark that it was a poor time for flowers, due to a lack of wind.
Following the end of the Gate Rune War, Zen remained at the castle, helping it blossom with flowers.
