Abstract: This paper investigates the local integrals

where represents the integers of a composition algebra over a non-archimedean local field and is a non-trivial character on the units in the ring of integers of extended to by setting . The local zeta function for the trivial character is known for all composition algebras . In this paper, we show in the quaternion case that for all non-trivial characters and then compute the local zeta function in the ramified quadratic extension case for equal to the quadratic character. In this latter case, for any character of order greater than .
