“In these last 40 years, it has been terrorizing the lands using Leda’s old castle as its base, destroying and massacring everything in its path. It is just a ravaging beast...”
—Holmes telling Katri about Kranion
Kranion (クラニオン, erroneously called グラニオン Granion) is an enemy character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. She is the Earth Dragon who is worshiped by the people of the Temple of Earth. Princess Teeta (ティータ Tīta, fan translated as Tita) of Leda is in the form of Kranion during the game's events.
Until forty years prior to the game's events, Teeta lived happily with her husband, Gwenchaos. When she was fifteen years old, her father discovered the holy markings of Kranion on her body. He then ordered the court priest to forcibly transform her into Kranion through magic so that she could be used as a weapon in the long-lasting war between Leda and Salia. However, Teeta was incapable of returning to her human form and lost her sanity as a result, unable to determine friend from foe. With her immense strength, she caused both Salia and Leda to fall into ruin. Afterwards, she was banished to the remote northern mountains, where Gwenchaos watched over her as many men were sent to slay her.
Kranion makes her only appearance when Holmes's army is traveling through the ruins of Leda. Eventually, Gwenchaos appears and takes her away to keep her safe from harm. After Gerxel's death in the final chapter, Miradona releases Teeta's and Gwenchaos's souls, allowing them to ascend to the afterlife.
Kranion appears in Map 21, but she is called off of the field by Gwenchaos after a few turns. She is functionally invincible, so attacking her is not advised. Keep the player units out of her range or block her off with Katri in dragon form.
- Teeta's loss of her sanity is almost identical to the Earth Dragons degenerating in the Archanea Series of Fire Emblem.
