|"Ahhh, combat tests! Excellent!"|
Even though chemistry has traditionally fallen under the realms of the Serpent Clan, this righteous warrior's allegiance belongs to the Dragon Clan. Teppo is an alchemical and scientific genius, supposedly hailing from the far-off town he calls "Malcolmson". Teppo is as skilled with his mind as he is with his hands, and his massive rapidfiring wheel, dubbed the Dragon's Wheel, that he carries on his back is one of his own designs.
Though it might look awkward, this wheel is powerful, and is capable of firing three explosive rockets in a single burst. His rocket wheel makes him primarily a ranged unit, though he's moderately adept at fending for himself in hand-to-hand combat. He carries a flaming torch he uses to bash any foes that stray too close, inflicting blunt damage to them.
- Teppo is a playable hero but only appears in skirmish or multiplayer games for Winter of the Wolf. The inspiration for Teppo's design came from James Malcolmson of Phoenix, Arizona, who was the winner of Liquid Entertainment's "Create a Zen Master online" contest.
- Teppo's hometown's name is based on his designer's surname.
- Teppo (鉄砲) is a Sino-Japanese noun meaning "Iron Cannon," historically referring to Portuguese-inspired arquebuses.
- Unlike other units who climb on horses, Teppo launches himself with his Rocket Wheel atop his mount.
- His lore said that his Rocket Wheel fires three each burst; however, in-game Teppo fires five.
- Outdated manual's information implies that Magic Negation fully negates magical damage and effects, yet in-game tooltip correctly states that only status effects will be negated, like stuns, slows, haste, etc. and spells' healing or damage like: Gaihla's Chant of Life or Utara's Song of Sorrow, not magical auto-attacks
- "There, huh?"
- "Hmmph, okay!"
- "That spot there?"
- "That should be fine"
- "Sounds good"
- "I see?"
- "Another weapon's test"
- "More target practice"
- "Oh, better research"
- "T-The rockets ready!"
- "Let's get started!"
- "Yes, I'll handle this!"
