|Rumored to be Mahendra's illegitimate son.|
Jaswant (ジャスワント) is a major character in The Heroic Legend of Arslan and a playable character in Arslan: The Warriors of Legend.
Jaswant believes his parents died long ago and serves his lone benefactor, Mahendra, The Grand Vizier of Sindhura. Mahendra sides with Prince Gadevi during the Sindhura princes' feud, and Jaswant is ordered to spy on Prince Rajendra's forces. His cover is blown by Gieve yet Arslan spares his life. Losing his position in Sindhura with Mahendra's death, Jaswant wishes to aid Arslan to repay his debt.
Renowned within his country as a master swordsman with swordplay "as fierce as Sindhura's sun", Jaswant is often compared to a black panther for his prowess. As a warrior, he is as fearless and dutiful as his reputation suggests. Off-duty, he is a honest and mild-mannered man who appreciates simple acts of kindness. Jaswant knows he was raised in unusual luxury for his lowly birth. His devotion to his job is fueled by his belief and joy that he is protecting those less fortunate within his homeland.
Though he states that he is obligated by his principles to repay Arslan, the prince's altruism moves Jaswant; he heralds Arslan as his life savior who is truly worthy of his loyalty and protection. Jaswant values his duties to Arslan so much he considers material gain as a mere formality.
