Bastion Wiki

Zia is a survivor of the Calamity. She is an ethnic Ura who was born and raised in Caelondia, and as a consequence, knows little of her Uran heritage.

The Kid finds her in Prosper Bluff by following the sound of her voice.


Zia's past is explored in Who Knows Where via her stockpot.


Role in Bastion[]

Shortly after the Kid falls into Prosper Bluff, he is startled by the sound of a woman's voice. The melody leads the Kid to Zia's campsite, where he convinces her to return with him to the Bastion.

Zia brings her guitar and her father's Hidebound Journal, which she is unable to read herself. She pitches a tent near the Monument and is supposedly a skilled cook.

She successfully hatches an anklegator and a pecker from eggs the Kid has scavenged from the Wilds.

After Zulf leaves the Bastion, he sends a messenger with a letter for Zia. He claims to have discovered the truth of the Calamity and encourages her to also leave the Bastion.

When the Ura attack, Zia vanishes, leaving behind her precious guitar. Believing that she has been kidnapped, The Kid pursues the Ura for days before finally recovering her. Zia confesses that she left with the Ura because she wished to witness the truth herself. She willingly returns to the Bastion.


Zia speaks to the player for the first time during the final event of the game. She encourages the player to select the Evacuation ending, as her happiest moments have all occurred after the Calamity.

If the player chooses the Resurrection ending, she is depicted performing music for her classmates wearing a withdrawn, lonely expression.

If the player chooses the Evacuation ending, she is depicted on the ship, cheerfully looking forward to the future.
