“Lord Runan, at least let me accompany you as far as Balt! I must find my father. I’ve already made up my mind. I’m going with you whether you like it or not!”
—Sasha, after Runan liberates Wellt
Sasha (サーシャ Sāsha) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. She is the princess of Wellt and the daughter of King Loffaru and Queen Liza, as well as the cousin of Verna, Mahter, Frau, Meriah, Rishel, and Renee. She is also the niece of Andre, Clarice, and Rose, and a granddaughter of Octavas. Due to her position as the royal princess, she is being pursued by her chancellor, Duke Codha, who schemes to seize control of Wellt.
Sasha is introduced alongside Kate when they are fleeing from Codha's army at the beginning of the game. After Runan saves them, she allies with him to liberate Wellt from Codha. It is also revealed that she and Runan knew each other as children and his father intended for them to be betrothed. Early in the game, she receives the ☆Pegasus Flute from Mel. After her kingdom is finally liberated and Codha is imprisoned to await her father's judgment, Sasha reunites with Liza, whom she convinces to let her stay with Runan's army. One of her reasons for doing so is that she wants to find her missing father.
If Sasha is in Holmes's army, she notices the jade pendant that he wears around his neck. If he visits Wellt Castle, she meets with Liza, who reveals that she once lost a prized treasure from a very important person. In the events triggered by this, it is revealed that Sasha and Holmes are half-siblings due to him being Liza's son with Captain General Vals of Granada.
When Runan and Holmes invade the Gerxel Church's temple, Sasha can find Kate if the two of them were sent with the same army.
In the epilogue, Sasha returns to Wellt Castle and continues to live with Loffaru and Liza.
Sasha is a kindhearted and determined individual who never changes her mind once she has made a decision. She dreams of becoming a pegasus knight and receives tutoring from Mahter. She does not intend to take the throne of Wellt, as Loffaru wants to give it to Holmes instead. She has always wanted to have an older brother, particularly one like Holmes. She deeply cares about Kate and feels useless without her. Sasha does not easily notice if she has offended someone and often speaks carelessly even in the royal court, which Liza scolds her for.

Sasha is a poor unit at the beginning, having barely any strength or skill, which in turn makes it difficult for her to defeat enemies. Her growths are typical of a Pegasus Knight; high ability, skill, and luck, with poor strength and defense. A major advantage that only she has is that she can promote twice, once to Pegasus Knight and again to Dragon Knight. This gives her many promotion bonuses and will likely result in her having higher stats than Mahter at higher levels. Compared to the other four possible Dragon Knights, she competes with them well and using her is recommended.
Another advantage that Sasha possesses is that she learns the Elite skill once she reaches level 10, which makes training her much easier. She also receives support bonuses from the largest number of characters out of anyone in the game, and since many of these characters are also good units, this is a major advantage that helps with training her in the earlier stages of the game. Combined with flight, this gives her a lot of utility value.
- Sasha is one of the two characters in TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga whose dismounted map sprite and battle model does not change after promotion, the other being Raffin.
