Appearance and personality
Otharon is an old but fit Homs with a white beard and brown eyes. He wears an armless black sweater, an orange vest, black fingerless gloves, green and purple pants, a brown cloth belt, and brown boots.
Otharon is a stern leader. He shows compassion for those he fights to protect when necessary, but most of the time he is curt and to-the-point, not letting anything get in the way of his command of battles.
Otharon is first seen in a memory of Sharla's, when the Mechon begin to attack Colony 6. He orders that Sharla and Juju lead the evacuation of non-combatants, resulting the separation of her from Gadolt. Neither Otharon nor Gadolt have been seen since.
When Shulk, Reyn, and Sharla enter the Ether Mine in order to get into Colony 6 and rescue Juju, they find Otharon fighting Mechon. One the foes are dispatched, Otharon tells the group that Gadolt went missing after a botched attempt to free captured Homs, though he does not believe that he is dead. He then says that the captured Homs are taken to the Central Pit, and begins to lead them there. Shulk gets a vision that he thinks means that Otharon will die if they keep moving, so he tries to talk him down and slow the approach. Otharon is offended at the apparent cowardice, saying he's been planning his next move for a month, and continues ahead by himself. Reyn gets Shulk to spill the beans about his vision and complains that he isn't using the information they give properly.
The party gets to the bottom of the Centrral Pit at about the same time as Otharon, from different directions. Otharon watches the trio fight Xord, who has already eaten all the remaining Homs except for Juju, and boards a mobile artillery. After a short delay, he joins the fight, using the artillery's bulk as a weapon against Xord and pushing him into the ether river below. Reyn and Sharla use the opportunity to save Juju, while Shulk uses a crane to prevent the artillery from also falling into the river. Despite Shulk's help, Otharon has to sacrifice himself to get Xord to finally fall into the river, which Reyn refuses to accept and successfully saves him. Otharon gives Sharla Gadolt's Rifle.
Once escaping the mine, the party endures another Mechon assault, helped by the timely arrival of Dunban and Dickson. Otharon banters a bit with the other two warriors and follows the party as they travel through Satorl Marsh. After reaching the end of the marsh, Dickson, Juju, and Otharon turn back to return to Colony 6, with Otharon apologising for how he treated Shulk as a coward and hoping Sharla will successfully find Gadolt.
Otharon is next seen meeting Prince Kallian as part of creating an allied force to attack Mechonis. Otharon is angry and resentful that the High Entia are indeed real yet chose not to help the Homs at any point during their war with the Mechon, only to ask them for help now. But while he is upset, he does not dwell on it, and pledges his support. Dickson leaves to find Shulk, whose party has long left for Mechonis, and leaves the forces of both colonies under Otharon's command.
Otharon participates in the Second Battle of Sword Valley, and escapes the aftermath with no apparent issues. From there, he leads the defence of Colony 6 against the remaining foes that the people of Bionis face.
Otharon is briefly seen at the end of Future Connected.
