“I think I've lived long enough... I have no lasting regrets. Nay, I would have at least liked to see Lady Est be wed with my own eyes... Silva, I know you've always been living for Canaan. I entrust its future to you. Ernst, I leave the rest to you. It pains me to have to leave it up to you, but please support Lord Barker and Lord Julius. Lord Barker, please forgive what little this aged form can accomplish. Oh, our heroic homeland, Canaan! For the future glory of Canaan!!!”
—Barbaross's final moment.
Barbaross (バルバロッサ Barubarossa) is an enemy character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is a loyal general known as the "Shield of Canaan". He is the father of Silva and grandfather of Sun. He serves as a fatherly figure to Princess Estofarne. He is one of two bosses of Map 18.
Barbaross is a just and honorable man who lives and fights for his country. He thinks of his soldiers, who admire him for his strength and responsibility. Following the Balt War, he found King Loffaru of Wellt unconscious and took him to Clarice in Salia Town so that she could care for him.
Seeing no hope of victory and wishing to die honorable, he ultimately kills himself by detonating the Balt Fortress that he resides in during his battle against Runan.
“Even should I die, I won't let you pass here!”
“Ugh...So this is it... No, I can't fall yet... Look well! This is Barbaross' final hour!!”
- Barbaross appears to be based on both Lorenz and Hannibal, the latter in terms of design and title, and the former in terms of situation.
- His design and title could also be based on the real-life figure Frederick I. "Barbarossa", emperor of Germany from 1122 to 1190. He got his nickname that is inspired off his great red beard by Italians who he fought and defeated.
