“What is that, a toy? Huh, you don't see a girl playing with toy swords very often. Anyway, just go on home. I'll have a couple of my men guard you on the way if you want. Where do you live?”
—Norton, in a conversation with Sasha, before realizing her true identity
Norton (ノートン Nōton) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is a knight of Wellt who leads the castle guards, as well as a close friend of Lionel. Because he is disinterested in political conflicts, he refuses to aid Lionel in his plans to rebel against Codha. He is loyal to Princess Sasha and joins Runan's army on her orders.
If he is sent with Runan along with Kate and Zeek after the first route split, Norton will approach Kate after Map 10. Believing that Zeek is a traitor, he advises her to distance herself from him, as he does not wish for her to get hurt. However, he ends up apologizing to her, as she soon begins crying while claiming that no one else understands Zeek like she does.
|Item Required||Promoted Class|
|Knight Proof||Iron Knight|
Norton is a unit of solid stats and a desperate need to promote. As far as Norton's concerned, he has solid Strength, Skill and Speed, with above average defenses coupled with enough Weapon Level to effectively fight. However, Norton is an Armor Knight, which has abysmal movement, hampering his usability. Norton's Move problem is fixed by his promotion, which doubles his movement, allowing him to move quickly enough to keep up with the group. So, if you want to use Norton, promote him as soon as you can, he'll be quite the solid ally.
- Norton's appearance strongly resembles Arden. His promotion to Iron Knight may reference Arden's desire for a mount.
