Konan is a minor character in Tales of Zestiria. He is a prince of Rolance, and directly responsible for the impact on Rose's past.

History

Although the second prince of the Rolance Imperial family, whether or not Konan carried the blood of the late Emperor Doran had been the subject of rumors. Favored by his mother, the Queen, the two plotted to have his older brother, Prince Leon, assassinated.[1]

Due to the Windriders' success as Rolance's most trusted mercenaries, Konan proposed to one of the members, Rose, to officially recruit the Windriders into the army. One day, however, he was inadvertently turned into a hellion by Dezel's blessing. With his elitism heightened from the malevolence, he accused the Windriders' leader, Brad, of conspiring in the murder of the first imperial prince, which Konan himself had orchestrated.[1] In retaliation for his betrayal, Rose killed Konan.

Konan as he appears in Tales of Zestiria the X.

In Tales of Zestiria the X, Konan enlisted the aid of the Windriders in a war, promising them greatness and pledging to marry Rose. When the mercenaries achieved total victory, Konan no longer had a use for them and had the Windriders ambushed. As a result, many of its members were killed, including Brad.

Years later, Konan is involved in a scheme to sell a highly addictive tainted elixir with the aid of the church's corrupt clerics. One night he is attacked by Rose in his castle, after she had finally managed to track his whereabouts in a bid for revenge. While she initially appears to have struck a fatal blow, Konan proves resilient, and his guards arrive on the scene. Konan flees, but Rose pursues him across the bridge and makes another effort at ending his life; in desperation, Konan turns into a zombie hellion and fights back. After a brutal battle between the two, the bridge collapses and sends Konan, Rose, and Shepherd Sorey into the lake. While the Prince's body is never recovered, Lailah confirms that his injuries were fatal.

Trivia

  • The name "Konan" has various meanings depending on the origin. As an alternate spelling of "Conan," as opposed to the Japanese name that it resembles, the name's potential meanings become "high," "hound," and "wolf," which each suit his character. "High" can be a reference to his social status, while both "hound" and "wolf" relate to canines, which sets him in opposition to Prince Leon, whose name means "lion."
  • Konan has a younger brother named Lyte.
