Teru Saotome is a reccuring character in the Metal Saga, making his debut in Beyblade: Metal Fusion.
He is a beyblader who used to be a skilled ballet dancer, he now uses both in unison with his Earth Virgo GB145BS.
Teru is a light skinned, teenage boy of average height and japanese decent. He has wavy blonde hair that covers his right of his two dark blue eyes.
Teru is normally very well dressed and is noted to have alot of class. He wears a pink jacket with yelllow designs over a white dress shirt with a blue ribbon around the collar. Around his waste he wears a battle belt which hold his gear for beyblading including his launcher and his virgo. Below the waste he wears dark blue pants that tuck into his white boots with a pink fold that matches his jacket.
In general, Teru is very calm and disciplined. He plays with interest, but also with clear goals in mind, such as getting his name known at least in the Beyblade world. He does not really talk a lot, but when he does, his words drip with content, and he likes ballet.
