“Mel... Why was I born into nobility? Why did I become a holy knight? If I were a commoner, I would be able to live freely together with you...”
—Roger, expressing his desperation in a conversation with Mel
Roger (ロジャー Rojā) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is a holy knight of Wellt hailing from a noble house that has served Duke Codha's family for generations. He is also the fiancé of Mel.
It is important to note that like Quan and Ethlyn from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, Roger dying will cause Mel to leave and vice versa. They also cannot be separated during the route splits. If they are assigned to different armies, the one assigned to Holmes will be reassigned to travel with Runan.
Roger is introduced when he receives orders from Codha. In his first scene, he asks Codha if the rumors about him holding Queen Liza as a prisoner are true. Codha immediately denies it and begins to question Roger's loyalty. Some time later, Roger enters battle with Runan's army in the Gram Forest, but even with Mel's assistance, he is unable to stop them. Afterwards, Codha becomes increasingly doubtful of Roger's loyalty and takes Mel as a hostage, deeply troubling Roger and increasing his internal conflict. If Mel is rescued by Narsus, she can easily sway Roger to betray Codha.
In the ending, Roger witnesses the reunion of Alfred and Sylpheeze, whom he thinks that he and Mel should be like. In their final scene, Roger and Mel agree to invite Runan and Holmes to their marriage.
Roger is an honorable man who suffers from a dilemma caused by the conflict between his loyalty as a knight and righteous nature. He dislikes fighting against women and tries to avoid it, but will defend himself when they attack him first. He appears to have some discontent with his noble heritage and status as a knight due to his desperation and inability to live freely together with Mel. Both he and Mel feel discomfort whenever they are not at each other's sides, and he is bothered when she agrees to dance with other men at one of the banquets.
Roger is a unit with quite good base stats, but average growths. When he first joins, he hits hard, accurate and relatively often. Combining this with an excellent starting ability set, Roger has a strong start. However, Roger grows slower than most other cavalry characters and will eventually fall behind by the late mid-game. Roger is recommended to use if the player needs a strong unit in the early-game.
