“We are the Four Sages of Lieberia, the finest students of the White Master Morse. Mios, the Sage of Light and Octavas, the Sage of Fire, have already succumbed to my spells of darkness. You are the only one left, Eisenbaha, Sage of Wind. Do you still doubt my power now?”
—Gwenchaos to Eisenbaha
Gwenchaos (グエンカオス Guenkaosu) is the main antagonist of TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He was once the Sage of Earth, one of the four Four Sages, but he was cast out after he betrayed the others and unsealed the forbidden ★Zahhak spell. He is the leader of the Gerxel Church and seeks to revive the Dark Dragon Gerxel.
Until forty years prior to the storyline, Gwenchaos was a priest of the Temple of Earth and the husband of Teeta, the youngest daughter of the king of Leda. After his wife was forcibly transformed into Kranion and banished to the remote mountains of Leda, Gwenchaos watched over her and observed as many men were sent to slay her. Witnessing the brutality of the warriors hunting Teeta caused him to gradually lose his faith in humanity. Gwenchaos eventually began his mission to revive Gerxel in order to destroy humanity and be reunited with his wife in death.
Gwenchaos eventually succeeds in gathering the four shamans (Enteh, Katri, Neyfa, and Tia) required for the resurrection ritual of Gerxel and begins to sacrifice them one by one. Towards the end of the ritual, he notices Tia's resemblance to Teeta and decides that he will let her live for a while longer if she becomes a replacement for his lost wife. Afterwards, he is betrayed by Richard, whom he soon kills in a battle. Angered by the deaths of Richard and the other shamans, Tia attacks Gwenchaos and manages to wound him. This leads him to call for power and transform into Gerxel. After Gerxel is slain through the combined efforts of Runan, Holmes, Sennet and Tia, Gwenchaos's and Teeta's souls are freed by Miradona, allowing them to ascend to the afterlife.
