A mysterious man who aids you at your first encounter; however, the questions of "Who is he?", and "What are his intentions?" remain questionable for some time.
Ziekwalt is a Hunter which is no different than a man-made Screaper with enhanced abilities. He is capable of absorbing both screapers and humans to restore his powers as that his intentions are to eliminate the Queen Screaper alone. It is revealed in Growlanser VI that there were originally many Hunters as opposed to himself but they were killed off by Commander 13 and Merklich's group.
