Animenewsnetwork - This week on The Heroic Legend of Arslan, we meet an interesting new female character. So far, Farangis has done all the heavy lifting in terms of badass ladies, but no longer, because now we also have Alfreed. She's the daughter of the chief of the Zot Clan, who Hermes comes across in his quest to track down Arslan. When the Zots don't allow him access to their land immediately, Hermes slaughters the chief. This results in an all-out battle between the startled Zots and Hermes's men. The latter side wins, killing everyone except for Alfreed, now emboldened by vengeance. Even then, she only survives because Narsus happens to come across the group.
