“Ehm... I shall watch over Lord Arkis. I will surely make him into a great knight, so please forgive him...”
—Rina, at the end of Map 26B
Rina (リィナ Ryina, translated as Lina in fan translations) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. She is the thirteen-year-old younger sister of Kreiss, and the arranged fiancée of Arkis. Due to her young age, she is often viewed as a child by others, especially Arkis.
When Kreiss and Arkis departed from Razelia with Runan, Rina decided to stay behind. Her introduction changes depending on which version of Map 26 that the player goes to. In the first version of the chapter, she joins Runan's army when either Kreiss or Arkis visit her house. In the second version, she and Arkis are caught by Rentzen during their escape from Razelia. Rina is taken as a hostage by Rentzen to force Arkis to betray Razelia. After she is rescued by Runan's army, she can identify Arkis among the dark soldiers and re-recruit him. When Eugen summons Arkis to receive the punishment of a traitor at the end of the chapter, Rina defends him by revealing that he only betrayed Runan to protect her.
In the ending, Rina returns to Razelia and lives with Arkis's uncle while waiting for Arkis to come home to her.
|Item Required||Promoted Class|
Rina joins rather late into the game and comes at a very low level, which is somewhat helped by her Elite skill. While her growths are good overall, they are unfitting for her class. With her low HP, Strength, and Defense, as well as low starting Weapon Level, it is difficult to make her into an effective fighter and therefore she is mostly outclassed by the other horseback units. However, her high Magic makes her good at fighting mages, and her massive Luck will help her avoid normal attacks and critical hits. Like Rennie, she has the highest Movement in the game, potentially making her the most mobile unit available to players.
