A veteran Titan who coordinates the defense of the City, Zavala helps to mentor and outfit other Titans.
― In-game description[2]

Commander Zavala is the Titan Vanguard in the Tower.[2] Zavala sells a variety of Titan armor (including Vanguard armor) and emblems. All Guardians can purchase and own these items regardless of their class, but only Titans can equip Titan armor.


Zavala is a man of iron with a will and determination to succeed. Considered to be arguably the strongest Titan there is, Commander Zavala is one of the military leaders of the city along with his close friend Shaxx. He fought in the Battle of Twilight Gap beside Shaxx and his former mentor Lord Saladin, and emerged as one of its heroes.
