“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 Lina in fan translations) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. She is the thirteen-year-old younger sister of Kreiss as well as the arranged fiancée of Arkis. She believes that she can make Arkis into a fine knight and appears to be very devoted to him. Due to her young age, she is often viewed as a child by others, especially Arkis.
When Kreiss and Arkis left Razelia with Runan, she decided to stay behind and live with her fiancé's uncle. In the event that the player does to Map 26B, Rina will reunite with Arkis when he rushes into the city to help her escape. However, they soon are apprehended by Rentzen, who takes her as a hostage to force Arkis to betray Runan. During her time as a captive, she is imprisoned in a cell within Razelia Castle. At the beginning of Map 26B, Rentzen threatens her life in order to force Arkis to dress himself as a dark soldier so that Runan will not recognize him on the battlefield.
During the chapter, Rina will be saved by Runan's army when her cell is unlocked. If she speaks to Arkis, she can recruit him back into Runan's army. After the battle, Eugen summons Arkis to receive the punishment of a traitor, but Rina stands up for her fiancé and takes responsibility for his treachery, saying that he only betrayed Runan to protect her. Her words convince Runan and Eugen to forgive Arkis and trust her to keep him under control. In this scene, she states that she will make Arkis into a fine knight.
In the ending, Rina returns to Razelia and continues to live with Arkis's uncle, who mentions that she has grown up. She also decides to wait 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 generally 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.
