Interview with a Vampire

I'll be waiting for you, Hix.

—  Tengaar

Tengaar was the daughter of Zorak, who was the Chief of Warriors' Village. Growing up alongside Hix, their childhood bond eventually blossomed into a romantic relationship. Hix had actually made a childhood promise to marry Tengaar, which she took to heart though Hix had long since forgotten that particular vow.

She was characterized by a bright and cheerful personality, albeit occasionally tempered by her frustration with Hix's indecisiveness, in contrast to her own forthright nature. Deeply devoted to Hix, Tengaar's love for him was unwavering, prompting her to fiercely defend him when necessary.

Start as you mean to go on, I say.

However, her life took an unexpected turn when she fell victim to Neclord's kidnapping scheme, intending to make her his bride. In response, Hix courageously embarked on a mission to free her and, with the aid of the Toran Liberation Army, succeeded in rescuing Tengaar.

Remarkably, during her captivity under Neclord, Tengaar remained steadfast in her belief that Hix would eventually come to her rescue. Following their victorious battle against Neclord, both Tengaar and Hix decided to join the ranks of the Liberation Army. At Toran Castle, she could often be seen lamenting Hix's progress with his swordsmanship.

Upon the conclusion of the Gate Rune War, Tengaar completed her service with the Liberation Army and accompanied Hix on a journey. Their objective was to assist him in undertaking his Manhood Ceremony, a pivotal rite of passage.

The Test of the Unicorn

Please make Hix into a true warrior.

—  Tengaar

Embarking on their journey together, Tengaar's headstrong nature occasionally clashed with Hix's more timid personality. Nevertheless, they shared tender moments that revealed the depth of her affection for him. One main motivation for her pushing Hix to complete his Manhood Ceremony was so they could get married.

It takes two to converse; one to talk and one to listen.

Their journey eventually led them to the City-State of Jowston, where they sought to undergo the Test of the Unicorn in Kobold Village. With the support of the leader of the New State Army, Tengaar and Hix embarked on the trial.

During the trial, the kobold chief collaborated with them to orchestrate a fabricated curse, compelling Hix to face a "trial." Ultimately, the unicorn Sigfried appeared before them and acknowledged Hix's worthiness. She was genuinely proud of Hix's efforts, even though the trial was initially fraudulent, knowing he would do anything for her.

Having achieved their goal in the City-States of Jowston, Tengaar and Hix expressed their gratitude by joining the New State Army. Following the conclusion of the Dunan Unification War, Tengaar continued her journey alongside Hix while anticipating his proposal.
