“Come now, tears already? You will be a burden to Lord Runan like that, Sasha. You carry the blood of a Salian warrior in your veins. You must never lose. You may be a woman, but you must never let that be an excuse for weakness. A harsh world awaits you, so you must be independent, and be able to fight for yourself. Understood, Sasha?”
—Liza, to Sasha at the end of Map 7
Liza (リーザ Rīza) is a non-playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. She is the wife of King Loffaru of Wellt and the mother of Sasha. She is also one of the three daughters of Octavas and the sister of Andre, Clarice, and Rose.
Liza was once the finest pegasus knight in Salia. She fought in the Leda Liberation War, during which she first met Loffaru. At that time, she was a friend of Lord Glamdr of Razelia and Captain General Vals of Granada. She eventually married Vals and give birth to their son, Holmes, but left after five years.
At the beginning of the game, Liza is imprisoned in her private quarters by Duke Codha, who schemes to seize control of Wellt. Her status as a captive is kept as a secret because Codha knows that the other nobles in Wellt will side against him if they find out about it. During Narsus's infiltration of Castle Wellt, she meets with him and asks him to inform Merlon about her well-being. She also requests for him to give the ☆Pegasus Flute to Sasha and tasks him with freeing Codha's hostages. She is later freed when Runan liberates Wellt.
If Sasha is sent with Holmes's army after the first route split, she can visit Liza at Wellt Castle. In this scene, Liza mentions that she lost a treasure that she received from a very important person, who is later revealed to be Vals.
In the ending, Liza reunites with Sasha and Loffaru, and the three of them continue to live together in Wellt.
