“Lady Renee, don't worry about us. We live and die by the whims of battle. That's what it means to be a soldier.”
—Shion, in a conversation with Renee
Shion (シオン, fan translated as Xyon) is an enemy character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is the younger brother of Theodora and a Dragon Knight from Sofia. Like his sister, he loyally serves Prince Julius of Canaan.
Shion is introduced when he is residing in Granada with the Zoa Empire's navy. After his subordinate, Praeva, openly criticizes him by claiming that he has his leadership position solely because of his relation to Theodora, Shion sends him on a mission to stop Holmes's army. Following Praeva's death, Shion discovers that Holmes is advancing towards Granada, so he prepares his defense. He also sends Renee, whom he has been caring for since his subordinates found her unconscious, outside of the city to prevent her to becoming involved in the coming battle.
If he is not defeated by Holmes's army, Shion meets with Theodora, who informs him that Reshe has returned to Sofia and orders him to retreat so that he can aid in the restoration of their homeland.

“Now I understand why the citizens have all been acting up... You're the remnants of the Reevan Navy... Then you are more than worthy opponents! Come, then, soldiers of the old kingdom! For my prince and country, you must fall!”
—Shion's default battle quote
- Vs. Holmes
Shion: The renowned Holmes of Granada... You've made quite a name for yourself, befitting of the son of Admiral Vals. No wonder Praeva was no match.
Holmes: Am I supposed to know who that is? I don't waste my time memorizing the names of Imperial stooges.
Shion: This war's a lot bigger than just you versus the Empire, boy. Not that I would expect you to understand. I suppose you don't know my name, either?
Holmes: What's the point of learning the name of a man who's about to die?
Shion: I agree completely. Then I'll skip the pleasantries. Even if I told you, you'd only know it for a few minutes more. Not much of a souvenir to bring to the other side!
“Kuh... This was all... I could do, huh? Sister... I'm sorry... Forgive me...”
—Shion's default death quote
- Vs. Holmes
Shion: You're just as formidable as... the rumors said you were... Much stronger than I'd expected...
Holmes: You weren't so bad yourself. Sorry for mouthing off earlier. You were certainly a worthy opponent.
Shion: Hah... I wasn't expecting an apology... You're an odd one, Holmes of Granada...
Holmes: Would you tell me your name? I think I'd like to remember it after all.
Shion: It's Shion... Knight to His Highness, Prince Julius... and former soldier of the Kingdom of Sofia...
Holmes: I'll remember that. I wish it didn't have to end this way.
Shion: Hah... It's a bit too... late for that... Wouldn't you... say...?
