— Nevka, on the role of his low ranking troops
(Japanese: ネブカ Nevka) is a boss and member of the Gerxel church appearing in TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles. He is one of Guenchaos's underlings.
Nevka first appears, during Map 31: Traitor..., accompanying Zeek. After a short argument on the role of the troops serving him and Zeek, Zeek requests that Nevka simply let him do his job and not to interfere. Nevka agrees and watches the battle from the sidelines. Zeek unfortunately ends up defeated, so Nevka rescues Zeek from Holmes after the battle. When Nevka arrives to free Zeek, he happens upon him while he is talking with Kate, and congratulates Zeek on capturing a prisoner. Despite Zeek's attempt at objecting, Nevka takes Kate with them as a prisoner while they retreat.
Nevka is later encountered by Enteh and Runan's party during Map 37: Holy Sword of Reeve. Enteh enters the temple and offers to exchange herself for Neyfa's freedom, but Nevka rejects her deal and captures her easily. Nevka then delivers Enteh to Guenchaos. Guenchaos is pleased by this, and then tells Nevka to stay in the Water Temple and prevent Runan from obtaining the Holy Sword Leda that is sealed nearby. Nevka agrees and Guenchaos departs to the deeper reaches of the underground temple. Nevka, despite being aided by Gerxel troops and some Dragon Zombies, is unable to prevent Runan from obtaining the Holy Sword Leda and perishes in the battle.
- Note: The current fan-translation revision rewrites the scene to have Enteh threaten to transform into Muse, and Nevka instead calls her bluff that she does not have the ring in her possession.
Personality and character
Nevka holds to the strict hierarchical values of the Gerxel church, and considers non-Zoan lives to be of little value. He is manipulative, and commands Zeek with threats of ratting some of his more questionable actions to Karla, Zeek's elder sister.

- ↑ 1.0 1.1 "Nevka: These men aren't worth your time.
Zeek: What are you talking about?
Nevka: Ah, I forget that you've been away. Thanks to those meddling Ledans, we've had to make do with these volunteers, even though they lacked the proper qualifications worthy of our great nation. They're no better than arrow fodder.
Zeek: Father Nevka, they're loyal and willing soldiers for the cause, aren't they? His Excellency teaches that every man has his own role to play in Gerxel's world. You're a priest, and I'm a soldier, but we are both men of Zoa. If we look down on these men simply because they're not like us, then we're no better than the pagans!
Nevka: You fail to see the greater picture. There will be no place for these men in the new world Gerxel will build for us." — Zeek and Nevka, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
- ↑ "Nevka: Bah, this arguing is pointless... Babble on your own time, after you've annihilated these heathens.
Zeek: Just let me do my job, Father Nevka. Don't interfere with my duty.
Nevka: Very well, then. I'll be watching from the sidelines." — Zeek and Nevka, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
- ↑ "There you are, Zeek. I'd heard that you were captured, looks like you've taken your own prisoner! His Excellency will be most pleased." — Nevka to Zeek, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
- ↑ 4.0 4.1 "Zeek: Father Nevka?!
Nevka: I'll take care of this woman, Zeek. ...I trust you have no problems with that? You wouldn't want to disappoint Lady Karla, now, would you?
Zeek: ...No, Father Nevkha..." — Nevka to Zeek, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
- ↑ "Enteh: Hand over the maiden of Rakis! I'll give myself up in her place.
Nevka: Oh ho! So you're trying to tell me that you came all this way out here to save Princess Neyfa?
Enteh: Rakis was crying... Just as I used to... Do you really take pleasure in making the same mistakes over and over again?! I beg of you! Release the maiden of Rakis!
Nevka: Ha ha ha... Very well, you can ask the Pope directly. I'll take you there myself.
Enteh: Stay back! I won't let you do as you please!
Nevka: I can't let you do that! Take this!
Enteh: Uugh..." — Nevka to Enteh in the old fan-translation, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
- ↑ "Nevka: Well, well! If it isn't the Water Shaman herself! Come to give yourself up?
Enteh: Hardly. I'm here to save the Wind Shaman. Release her at once!
Nevka: Now why would I do that? You really think you can threaten me?
Enteh: I heard Rakis crying, just like I used to... Begging for someone to come and save her... I won't let you use her like you used me! I might not be a match for you... But Muse is. If you know what's good for you, you'll hand over Lady Neyfa now.
Nevka: Do your worst, Water Shaman. We men of God do not fear death. Even the power of a Guardian Dragon pales in comparison to His Excellency's sorcery. You will not leave this place alive.
Nevka: What's wrong, girl? Lost your nerve? If you will not strike, I shall!
Nevka: ...What's this?! You don't even have the Ring of Reeve! I see... You didn't want to risk us taking the Ring, so you tried bluffing, is that it? You've sorely underestimated us, girl." — Nevka to Enteh in the new fan-translation, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
