Ward Zabac is a temporary playable character in Final Fantasy VIII. He uses a large spear-like weapon called a harpoon, which he throws at his enemies and fights alongside his friends Laguna and Kiros in the Galbadian Army.
Standing at seven feet, Ward is a tall and intimidating-looking person. However, underneath his rough exterior lies a wise, observant mind. He is first seen wearing the standard Galbadian soldier's uniform, but his casual attire consists of a blue bandana on his head, white tank-top, green overalls and army boots. He sports a scar going across the left side of his face from an undisclosed injury, and has light facial stubble.
Despite his intimidating persona, Ward is a caring person who would help a friend whenever they need it, although this usually results in him being dragged along on one of Laguna's poorly thought-out schemes.
