Voice Actor(s):

Isfān (イスファーン) is a secondary character from The Heroic Legend of Arslan and a playable character in Arslan: The Warriors of Legend.

When he was a child, his step-mother learned of his father's affair and angrily left him and his mother to die in the snowy mountains. They were protected by a pack of wolves, leading to Isfan being known as "the man raised by wolves" within the military. Together with Tus and Zaravant, he joins Arslan's forces at Peshawar Castle.


Serious and strict, Isfan is a talented warrior. He has a wild streak within him from the lessons he learned from the wolves, adopting a ruthless if efficient fighting style and a pack mentality. Isfan continues to treat wolves kindly in gratitude to them.

Though his step-mother was cruel to him, Isfan dearly loved Shapur. His brother treated him well once Isfan and his mother returned to Pars, disregarding the fourteen year gap between them. A great deal of his military conduct is spent mimicking his idol. He holds a grudge against Gieve for killing Shapur, even if he knows it was done as an act of mercy.
