“My mother once told me that Lady Liza used to be the finest Pegasus Knight in Salia when she was young. She took part in the Leda Liberation Wars and fought just as well as the men. That was when she met King Loffaru. She was also friends with Lord Glamdr and Admiral Vals... You have her blood, Sasha, so I'm sure you could be a Pegasus Knight. I'll ask my mother for the Pegasus Flute when I go back to Salia. We could soar through the skies together some day. Then we could get Verna and Frau, and see who can fly the fastest.”
—Mahter, in a conversation with Sasha
Mahter (マーテル Māteru, translated as Martel in fan translations) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. She is a pegasus knight in service to Salia. She is also the second daughter of Roberto and Clarice, making her younger than Verna and older than Frau. Her pegasus steed is named Ivis.
Mahter is initially residing in the Temple of Mars. She is eventually sent on a mission by Eisenbaha to bring Enteh back to the temple. However, she soon discovers that Enteh is traveling with Runan and joins his army to fulfill her orders. If she is sent with Holmes after the first route split, she can encounter Frau in Blood and recruit her to the army.
In the ending, Mahter is offered to assist Rishel in rebuilding the Temple of Fire. She immediately assumes that he is attempting to make her into a substitute for Enteh. After Clarice calls her out for her rude behavior, Mahter accepts the offer and agrees to become a cleric, but states that she does not necessarily requite Rishel's romantic feelings for her.
Like Verna, Mahter has a tendency to become angry when Frau is in danger, although she is more harsh about it. She supports Rishel's succession of the Fire Priestood, knowing that their other relatives are incapable of it. Rishel claims that Mahter is unreliable and pushes all responsibilities onto him. She is particularly kind towards Katri and expresses concern for her safety, possibly because she is aware of her true identity as Princess Maria of Salia.

Mahter is best described as a solid fighter with great flight utility. While her combat ability is not amazing, she does learn a few powerful skills, and she competes very well with the other Pegasus Knights. Although Sasha will most likely surpass her in power due to having multiple promotions, Mahter has a major advantage in that she comes with decent base stats and a mount. However, she requires one of the very rare Dragon Flutes to promote, so in order to upgrade her to a Dragon Knight, the player will most likely have to forgo training either Sasha or Frau to their maximum potential. She can also support with many characters, including her sisters and Sasha, whose rivaling Movement makes it easier for her to receive support bonuses from them.
