Holy Dragon Neuron






Holy Dragon Neuron is the eighth chapter in TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles.


Main article: TearRingSaga:Holy Dragon Neuron/Script

After departing from Wellt, Runan decides to visit Holmes at Isura before returning to the mainland. As he begins to make his way towards Isura, Holmes defeats a band of pirates led by Maerhen and drives them off the island. He rescues a shaman named Katri, who explains that she and her adoptive father Law were on their way to the Temple of Mars to place her under the protection of Ezenbah when they were ambushed by the pirates and Law was slain. Katri discovers a Zombie Staff and begins swinging it around in an attempt to resurrect Law, accidentally summoning a horde of hostile zombies. Runan arrives just as Holmes and his companions are starting to be overrun by the zombies, and help him drive them off.

During the battle, Holmes recognizes a bracelet in Katri's possession as being identical to one on a mural in the Fire Shrine depicting the goddess Yutona granting a bracelet to her daughter Salia; he realizes that the bracelet is the legendary Ring of Salia and that Katri is a descendant of the Salia royal family. Overcome by fear and exhaustion, Katri accidentally taps into the Ring's powers and transforms into the holy dragon Neuron. Maerhen also returns and attempts to retake control of the island before fleeing with a hostage, Renee.

After the battle, Holmes explains Katri's royal heritage to her and that powers like hers typically manifest on the wielder's fifteenth birthday, of which Katri's is today. Katri expresses horror at the prospect of becoming a dragon and Holmes suggests getting rid of the Ring of Salia, but Enteh reveals that anyone else who takes possession of the Ring can force her to become Neuron, potentially costing her her sanity. Holmes vows to protect Katri. Julia reunites with her brother Shigen, who serves as Holmes' second-in-command, and Garo departs Runan's company to return to Holmes' service. As Runan departs, Holmes explains that he is only expecting to fight pirate riffraff and will be able to pick and choose his battles; he offers to take some of Runan's less experienced soldiers off his hands to bring them up to shape.

At the end of the chapter, you will be made to split your army into two parties: one led by Runan, and one led by Holmes. Enteh must accompany Runan, while Katri must accompany Holmes. Roger and Mel cannot be split up; if you attempt to do so, the one assigned to Holmes will be moved to Runan's party. In order to recruit Leteena, Kreiss and Arkis must be sent with Holmes. Sending Mahter with Holmes also makes it slightly easier to recruit Frau and Sun, sending Sasha with Runan makes it slightly easier to recruit Loffaru, and sending Raffin with Runan makes it slightly easier to recruit Sharon and Billford (and allows him to promote to Dragon Knight). Sending Plum with Runan is required to teach her the Dance skill.
