The Emiyu race was an advanced civilization of dragons that existed thousands of years before the beginning of TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. Their properties and history are almost identical to the Manakete race in the Fire Emblem series. The Emiyu could harness advanced magic, and possessed both immortal flesh and lifespans of several thousands of years. However, 1500 prior to the storyline, humans started appearing and the Emiyu race began to die out. The king of the Emiyu declared that humans were the rightful successors of the world and decided to seal his race's power by sending them to a deep sleep within the earth. To prevent rebel factions from obtaining his daughter Miradona's great power, he secretly sent her away to the continent of Lieberia to sleep. Miradona was accompanied by her four servants and slept within Shiero Mountain, which guardian beasts were created to deter trespassers. Five hundred years later, Kalbazan of the Zoa tribe ignored this threat and drank Miradona's blood to become a dark dragon, naming himself after the Dark God Gerxel.
Being descendants of Miradona's supposed daughter Utna, the four shamans (Enteh, Katri, Tia, and Neyfa) have inherited the power of the Emiyu and can transform into the four holy dragons (Muse, Neuron, Kranion, and Rakis respectively).
- The King mentioned in the backstory is similar to Naga.
