“With his dual sword style, he was a famous swordman. Seven years ago, when I was in Istoria, I got to know and fell in love with him. However, one day, an assassin showed up in town. Before my eyes, he took my beloved's head and left.”
—Krisheenu recalling her grievous memory
Krisheenu (クリシーヌ Kurishīnu, translated as Krishna in some fan translations) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. She is a swordfighter as well as a thief. She is searching for the legendary ☆Dakruon, which is said to bring the dead back to life, in order to revive her lover, Algo.
Krisheenu can be duplicated through the use of a glitch.
Until seven years prior to the storyline, Krisheenu lived happily with her lover in Istoria. At that time, she was only an ordinary village woman. One day, Vega arrived in their village to have a duel with Algo. When she tried to stop Vega, he said that he pitied her and proceeded to decapitate Algo. After Vega left with Algo's head, Krisheenu began her journey to resurrect Algo and endured hardships along the way.
Krisheenu is first seen when she is working for the Isla Pirates led by Maerhen. During a battle against Holmes, she steps up to protect Renee, who is Maerhen's hostage. After Renee is pushed overboard Maerhen's ship by his men, Krisheenu betrays them and joins Holmes's group. Some time afterwards, she finds Vega in the group and declares that she will avenge Algo. Knowing that she has not have the ability to defeat him, she persuades Shigen to do it for her. Once Shigen challenges Vega to a duel, Krisheenu realizes that her actions are not what her lover would have wanted and tries to stop them. Once they refuse to listen to her, she convinces Holmes to stop them himself.
After Holmes obtains the ☆Dakruon, Krisheenu steals it and travels to the Tower of Morse by herself. While she is there, she learns from Meeme that Algo cannot be resurrected because too much time has passed since his death. She is also found by Holmes, who recruits her back into his army.
Depending on events triggered during the story, Krisheenu can accompany Shigen when he travels around the world with Runan, Holmes, Enteh, and Katri. If this does not occur, she travels with Vega until they arrive at her home in Istoria.
|Item Required||Promoted Class|
Krisheenu is a very weak fighter from the moment she joins, being under-leveled and surrounded by enemies, a burden more than anything. To make matters worse, her growths are some of the worst in the game, fitting her role as a thief, which is a class mostly made of weak units in TearRing Saga. On the positive side, she does learn the very potent Rising Dragon skill fairly quickly, which can help bolster her offenses. She also possesses decent growths in Weapon Level, Speed and Luck. Advantages aside, she is outclassed by Vega, Julia, Shigen and Yoda, all of whom possess generally better stats and skills. If the player intends to use Krisheenu, she is best used for her steal skill, not for a combat role.
