“I've lived a long and full life. I would've liked to have lived to see Princess Estofarne on her wedding day, but I suppose this is just how it must be. Silva, my child... I know that even now, you're working in service of Canaan. I entrust my legacy to you. General Ernst, please continue your loyal service to Prince Barker and Prince Julius... And finally, Prince Barker... Sorry that these old bones of mine couldn't do more for you in your time of need... To our proud and beloved homeland! For the glory of the true kingdom of Canaan!”
—Barbaross's final moment
Barbaross (バルバロッサ Barubarossa, fan translated as Barbarossa) is an enemy character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is a loyal general known as the "Shield of Canaan", the father of Silva, and the grandfather of Sun. He is also one of the two bosses of Map 18.
After the Balt War, Barbaross found King Loffaru of Wellt unconscious and entrusted him to the care of Clarice, who nursed him back to health. At the Balt Fortress, he enters a battle against Runan's army, despite Princess Estofarne's concern for his safety. Seeing no hope of victory and wishing to die honorably, he ultimately kills himself by detonating the fortress.
Barbaross is a just and honorable man who lives and fights for his country. He serves as a fatherly figure to Estofarne and comforted her whenever she had nightmares. He cares about his soldiers, who admire him for his strength and responsibility.
“Even should I die... You will never take Fort Balt from me...!”
—Barbaross's battle quote
“Ergh... I'm not finished... Not by a long shot... I've still got one last fight left in me... Look well, soldiers of Razelia! Witness Barbaross's finest hour!”
—Barbaross's defeat quote
- 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 received his nickname which is inspired by his great red beard, by Italians whom he fought and defeated.
