“Until Admiral Vals rescued me, I was a slave, owned by a wealthy family of nobility. They used to force me to work day and night, without even giving me enough to eat. The family's children bullied and made fun of me to no end, and one day, I lost my temper and smacked one of them across the face. The master of the household pressed a hot iron against my back as a punishment, shouting to me that I wasn't human, that I was just an animal whose only worth was to work for him until I died. I felt so enraged, and yet so powerless... That was the first time I felt true hate for my parents. I cursed them every day for bringing me into the world, only to throw me away to suffer.”
—Xeno, reminiscing about his past
Xeno (ゼノ Zeno) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is a sixteen-year-old swordfighter from the Sea Lion Pirates. Depending on events triggered during the storyline, he can become the love interest of Yuni.
As a child, Xeno was purchased as a slave by a healthy family of nobles. He was forced to work day and night without much food while enduring the bullying of the family's children. One day, he lost his temper and smacked one of the children across the face. As punishment, the family's master pressed a hot iron against Xeno's back while telling him that he was not human. At this moment, he began to deeply hate his parents and cursed them for bringing him into the world. Prior to the game's events, Xeno was rescued by Captain General Vals of Granada, and afterwards, he joined the Sealion Pirates led by Holmes. He is introduced in the scene in which Holmes finds Katri on one of Maerhen's ships. In contrast to Holmes, Xeno treats Katri with great kindness and quickly becomes a close friend to her. After Katri runs away from the group, he and Yuni begin their search for her.
During their search, Xeno and Yuni are attacked by a large group of monsters. Soon, they reunite with Katri, and the three of them are aided by Runan. If he is sent with Holmes after the first route split, he will be present during their meeting with Tia. Afterwards, Holmes notices that Xeno bears a strong resemblance to Tia, which hints that they could be related by blood. During the second intermission, Xeno will rescue Yuni from a slave trader if she accepts an offer of drugged milk.
If the aforementioned event between him and Yuni did not occur, Xeno will be ordered by Holmes to remain at Katri's side in the ending. Regardless, they will separate because Katri decides to travel around the world with Holmes. However, if the event did occur, Xeno will remain at Yuni's side and learn about her tragic past.

Xeno is a force to be reckoned with, when given time to grow. Xeno's growths are strong across the board, with the exception of a slightly average HP growth. Now, if given time to grow, Xeno will hit hard, fast and...be kind of brittle. Anyway, Xeno is a good unit stat-wise and has some pretty amazing skills, from Rising Dragon to Anti-Evil. If you put to using him, he should satisfy.
