“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 Kranion, erroneously called Granion グラニオン) is an antagonist 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) of Leda is in the form of Kranion during the game's events.
Until she was around fifteen years old, Teeta lived happily with her husband, Gwenchaos. Forty years prior to the storyline, the king of Leda, who was her father, discovered the holy markings of Kranion on her body and ordered the court priest to perform magic on her in order to transform her into Kranion. However, Teeta was incapable of returning to her human form and was driven insane as a result, unable to determine friend from foe. Because of this, she was banished to the remote northern mountains, where Gwenchaos watched over her as many warriors were sent to slay her. The warriors' brutal methods in hunting her caused Gwenchaos to lose his faith in humanity.
Kranion appears in Map 21 when Holmes's army fights against her in a battle until Gwenchaos comes to save her. After Gerxel is defeated 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.
