“My name is Lee. I am a bishop in the service of Count Merlon. I may not be handy with a blade, but I have magical skills to offer.”
Lee (リー Rī) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is a bishop in the service of Count Merlon of Verge. If he is recruited before Map 2, he has a conversation with Plum at the end of the chapter. In this scene, he attempts to comfort Plum when she is frightened by the horrors of war and gifts her with the expensive ☆Defense Staff.
He can be chosen to join Runan's army out of 4 possible characters (Ezekiel, Narron, Ruka and himself) at Verge in Map 2. Subsequently, if he has not already been chosen, he can be recruited into Holmes's army later, out of 4 possible characters (the 3 not chosen before and Lionel).
Lee has some of the worst growths in the entire game, which means that his stats will not improve much upon leveling. His Luck is particularly low, making him prone to receiving critical hits. His Magic is decent for a healer, but rather low when compared to the other mages. His Agility, while fine at first, becomes low and therefore he will be weighted down by tomes and suffer from poor evasion. Because of his high starting level and stats, he will be quite powerful, but it is not recommended to use him too much because other characters will benefit more from the experience. Even with all that against him, he is a solid pick amongst the four units, for several reasons. It is recommended to have many healers early on for extra safety, and his bases are, while not spectacular, definitely serviceable.
One of his main points is that he is one of the two healers who are capable of self-defense, the other being Mel the troubadour. Lee is the only obtainable Bishop, which in terms of raw stats and weaponry, is the best staff using class available to the player. If he is recruited, he will give the ☆Defense Staff to Plum, which can prove to be quite helpful.
Overall, Lee is one of the best choices you can make, alongside Narron, due to his strong start, giving Plum access to her unique staff, and ability to retaliate with magic.
