“Karla... When you were but a lass, you were called the jewel of Zoa. And now you’re a warrior and kill people. You fool... No should I perhaps say it is pitiful. Fate is a cruel mistress...”
—Temsin, in a conversation with Karla
Temsin (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.
Temsin 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, Temsin 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 mentions that he left her own husband and son for the sake of her country.
In the ending, Temsin 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.
