“I can never forgive Gerxel... They took my grandfather, and now my beloved brother... Lady Maeve, I... I've chosen not to hide any more! I will find my brother and fight against Gerxel!”
—Meriah, in a conversation with Enteh
Meriah (メリエル Merieru) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. She is the younger sister of Rishel and the daughter of Naris and Rose. She is a mage who specializes in light magic and the sole wielder of ☆Starlight and ☆Aura Rain.
From her father's side, Meriah is a granddaughter of Mios and a cousin of Enteh. Meanwhile, from her mother's side, she is a cousin of Renee, Sasha, Holmes, Verna, Mahter, Frau, a niece of Andre, Clarice, and Liza, and a granddaughter of Octavas.
Unlike Rishel, Meriah is unaware of the crimes that their father committed against Reeve. Some time before the storyline, she lived in the Church of Blood with Renee. Eventually, she left the church to search for Rishel, whom she had lost contact with two years prior. Before leaving, Meriah left a letter to tell Renee not to worry about her.
Meriah is introduced when she is residing in the house of an elderly woman at Marl Harbor. Eventually, Meriah hears about the battle between the Leda Alliance Army and Istoria occurring in the area and leaves the house to fight. Around this time, she encounters Enteh, who recruits her into Runan's army. If Maruju is present in the army, she has a quarrel with him over their magical abilities. Later in the game, she reunites with Rishel. If both of them are sent with Runan, she receives ☆Aura Rain from him.
In the ending, Meriah becomes the head of the Temple of Water. Because she feels lonely without Rishel at her side, she asks him if she can visit him occasionally, which he agrees to as long as Enteh also comes with her.

Meriah is the second mage who is recruited by the player. Unlike Maruju, she specializes in the light and fire magic and has exclusive access to two personal tomes, ☆Starlight and ☆Aura Rain. With ☆Starlight, she can inflict heavy damage on enemies and easily dodge their attacks. ☆Aura Rain grants Meriah the ability to attack every enemy on the map, which can only be duplicated by Sierra using Earthquake. Her magic and agility are both quite high and therefore she will have good offense. Meriah also receives decent support bonuses from Enteh, Rishel, Maruju, and Renee. Because of this, she is recommended to use, although she is not quite as good as Rishel and Sierra.
