“I...was scared... I started running blindly when the zombies came after me... and I found myself in the poisonous marshes. The poison got to me, and I could barely breathe.Then when I thought I was done for, I suddenly transformed into a huge, red dragon. I... I panicked, and burned all of the zombies that were after me. That was a dream, right, Holmes? It was just an illusion I saw when I was near death, right? Please, Holmes... Just say that it was!”
—Katri recalling the first time that she transformed into Neuron to Holmes
Katri (カトリ Katori) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga and the heroine of Holmes's storyline. She is the Shaman of Fire and therefore is able to use the Ring of Salia to transform into the holy Fire Dragon, Neuron (ネウロン Neuron). Because she is one of the four shamans required to resurrect Gerxel, she is being pursued by Gwenchaos.
Like Enteh, Katri holds significant importance in the story and must be deployed in every chapter in which she is available. If she is defeated, this will result in a Game Over.
Katri's true identity is Princess Maria of Salia, the fifteen-year-old daughter of King Dagnell and Queen Maria. She is also the niece of Ahab, Lionheart, and Roberto, as well as the cousin of Verna, Mahter, Frau, and Plum. When Katri was an infant, she was smuggled out of her kingdom by Zachariah, who had been ordered by Ahab to murder her in the forest. Instead of fulfilling his orders, he entrusted her to the care of Father Law, whom he met in the forest. Eventually, she began training as a cleric in the Kingdom of Marl.
Early in the game, Katri and Law begin traveling to the Temple of Mars to leave her in the care of Eisenbaha in order to protect her from Gwenchaos. However, their ship is attacked by the Isla Pirates under the command of Maerhen and they are separated as a result. While Law is believed to have been slain, she is imprisoned inside of one of Maerhen's ships. Katri is introduced when she is rescued by Holmes and the Sea Lion Pirates, whom she initially believes to be kidnappers like Maerhen. Once Xeno treats her with kindness, she introduces herself and reveals the Ring of Salia, which she believes to be a memento of her parents.
While Katri is on Holmes's boat, she finds the Zombie Staff and uses it, thinking that it is the legendary staff of Morse that could be used to resurrect Law. She summons hundreds of monsters and runs away from the Sea Lion Pirates after becoming upset by Holmes's harsh behavior. She becomes lost in the poisonous marshes of Isla and transforms into Neuron. Once she returns to her human form, she is found by Runan's army as well as Xeno and Yuni, who bring her back to Holmes. She also discovers that she is the Shaman of Fire whose power to transform into a dragon has awakened because it is her fifteenth birthday. After Holmes makes a promise to protect her, she joins his group and follows him as a companion for the next segment of the story.
Later in the game, Katri saves Zachariah's life after he is defeated by Holmes in a battle. Once Zachariah sees her holy markings, he reveals her identity as the princess of Salia. After Ahab is killed by Holmes's group, Katri reunites with her parents in the dungeon of Salia Castle. Eventually, she leaves Holmes's group in order to stay with her parents and gives the Ring of Salia to him as a parting gift.
In the later stages of the story, Katri surrenders herself to Gwenchaos when he holds her mother as a hostage. Despite Holmes's best attempts to rescue her, she is ultimately sacrificed to Gerxel alongside Neyfa and Enteh. After Gerxel is slain by Runan, Holmes, Sennet, and Tia, Katri is revived by Miradona alongside the other fallen shamans and Richard. During her reunion with Holmes, she notices his tears and grabs onto him.
In the ending, Katri returns to Salia and reunites with her mother. However, she eventually boards the Sea Lion to travel around the world with Holmes, Runan, Enteh, and Shigen. Unlike Enteh, who embraces her birth name of Maeve, Katri continues going by her given name at Holmes's insistence.
Katri is a selfless, kindhearted, and naive girl who has always dreamed of meeting her birth parents. She rarely thinks ill of others and heals several of the enemy commanders that Holmes defeats. She is warm and friendly to almost everyone she meets, and Xeno states that her words are like "a soft melody that cleanses the hearts of those who listen." She seems to be unaware that Holmes is secretly in love with her and expresses surprise whenever he shows concern for her.
Automatically from the start of Map 8.
Katri joins early in the game and has good stats for a healer. Her Magic, Weapon Level, and Agility are all quite good, which makes her effective at healing. However, her Defense is extremely low and she often needs to be protected, as her death will result in a Game Over. She is required to be used in all of the chapters that she is available, making her Holmes's equivalent of Enteh in Runan's chapters. She is the only staff-user who can use summon staves for a long time, which gives her additional utility, as she can create distractions for the enemy. She can also transform into a dragon and launch attacks at groups of enemies at a time, giving her additional uses. While in dragon form, she is basically invincible, although she does not gain experience points and will return to her human form after an unspecified number of turns.
