"Life is hard for a mercenary. They’re viewed as necessary evils in The Last Story‘s society. Sure, it’s fine to hire a group to win a war or retrieve stolen goods, but you wouldn’t want to actually let one in after he was almost fatally injured fulfilling a mission you’d assigned him.

In particular, Zael entertains dreams of being a knight.", writes Siliconera.
