The Walister Resistance (also known as Walsta Liberation Army in the SNES/PS version) is an organization founded and led by Duke Ronwey in response to Hierophant Balbatos's ethnic-cleansing campaign. They became one of the three factions of Valeria's racially-fueled civil war, representing the Walister people.

The Resistance became severely compromised after Ronwey's capture and imprisonment in the army's own stronghold, Almorica Castle, but thanks to Denam Pavel and his companions the Duke was freed and the Resistance began their counterattack. Denam Pavel was made leader of his own order within the Resistance.

Later the Duke made the extreme decision to sacrifice the civilians of Balmamusa to unify the Walister against the Galgastani, causing a rift of opinion within the army itself, and later their increased unpopularity. Denam's and Vyce's positions in the Resistance depends on the choice made at the end of Chapter 1: either Denam follows through with the order and Vyce defecs, forming the New Walister Alliance; or Denam defects and Vyce takes Denam's place as one of the Duke's most trusted men.

Despite tensions, the Walister Resistance remains one of the main factions vying for control of Valeria.

Later on the Duke is assassinated, either by Vyce Bozeck or Leonar Reci Rimon. In the former case he's either made a scapegoat by the Bakram or killed on the spot by the Duke's guardsmen. In both cases, Leonar becomes the leader of the Resistance.

Some time later after this, Leonar himself dies, either killed by Denam or stabbed in the back by Catiua Pavel. Due to circumstances, Denam is made leader of the Resistance.

After the Dark Knights Loslorien's intervention is made known, and due to Denam's change in motivations, the Resistance goals change from the supremacy of the Walister to the liberation of Valeria from Lodis influence and the end of the civil war. Denam's further choices make the Resistance allies of the Order of Philaha (under Archiereus Mreuva) and unify most of the Walister, the Galgastani and the Bakram.

At the war's end the Resistance disbands following the coronation of Queen Versalia Oberyth or, if Versalia died, their own leader Denam Morne.
