“Heh, listen to you. Your irresponsibility beats mine by lengths! But this isn’t good. If your escape becomes known then I’m going to get dragged into all of this... I might even get the death penalty! What are you gonna do about this?”
—Hagaru, in a conversation with Mintz
Hagaru (ハガル Hagaru) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is known as the Panther Hagaru and appears to be an accomplice of Mintz. He enters the battle against Runan's army in Map 35. However, he can switch sides if Mintz tells him about the presence of many beautiful women in Runan's army.
He appears as an enemy unit in Map 34. Have Mintz speak to him and he will eventually appear behind the castle.
Hagaru joins very late in the game at a low level with poor base stats. While his growths are decent, but he has difficulty utilizing them because of his late recruitment and mediocre offense at base. He has support bonuses with Mintz that do not benefit either of them much because of their large movement difference. Since he joins on Runan's route after the third intermission, he cannot switch to Holmes's team and grind in monster battles, which further increases his leveling issues. He also has very low weapon level that prevents him from using the very powerful bows. However, he can wound enemies from afar with the Stone Hedge, although his accuracy is very questionable. He does have decent defense, which can be helpful in certain situations. In conclusion, he can make smaller contributions to the player's team, but he will not be one of the stronger units.
“Tch, here they come! With pretty maidens as opponents, I'd like to pull my punches, but unfortunately, I use this. I can't tell who's a man and who's a woman, see? I'm going no holds barred, better get ready!”
