“Karla... You were such a sweet child... and now you're a murderer. A few gray hairs and wrinkles are nothing compared to what's happened to you. It's pitiful, really... This world is such a cruel place...”
—Temzin, in a conversation with Karla
Temzin (テムジン Temujin) is a non-playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is the king of Arial and the father of Katrina. He is also one of the Twelve Heroes who fought in the Leda Liberation War.
Temzin was once a soldier of the Zoa Empire. He strongly disagreed with Gwenchaos and eventually left in order to be with a woman. Afterwards, he became a mercenary and fought against Zoa to liberate Arial, which was a city in Leda at the time. After his liberation of Fort Arial, the suffering citizens saw it as a miracle and forced him to become their king. Following Serene's death at the hands of Karla, he aided Katrina in raising Sennet and Neyfa, believing them to be orphans. However, he discovered that the two children's true identities as members of Canaan's royal family when Katrina was forced to reveal it as a result of Neyfa's first transformation into Rakis.
During the game's events, Temzin appears as a member of the Arial Mercenaries under the command of Sennet. He is introduced when the mercenaries come to the aid of Holmes during a battle in Leda. He later appears alongside Sennet, Reshe, and Estofarne when they witness Karla's murder of Barker. When Karla criticizes him for abandoning Zoa, he retorts that she left her own husband and son for the sake of her country.
In the ending, Temzin tells Katrina to stop explaining the history of Arial to Holmes. He also informs Holmes that Samson is his son-in-law and the future king of Arial.
“Kuh... I'm going to have to withdraw for the time being.”
