A Serbian Orthodox nun that serves at St. Mihailov. Along with her usual chores around the church, she also serves as a willing donor of Soma to Martyr Sasha. It is unknown why she has animal-like ears, but no one seems to notice or care that much.
She is a Serbian orphan who use to live with her adopted sister, Laura, at the Serbian Orthodox church in Krajina. When Croatian men and Croa, the Gas Chamber, arrive at the church, Laura locks up Teresa into a closet. Teresa witness the rape and murder of her family. This causes her to not speak due to the shock. (Yuri Noda explains Teresa's story to Mafuyu, Tomo, and Sasha.)
Teresa Beria is created by Hiroyuki Yoshino, and she has no information regarding any inspiration used to create her. She first appears in Seikon Qwaser volume 1 and episode 1. Her Japanese voice actor is Minori Chihara.
She has excellent hand-to-hand combat and can defend against heretics' attacks.
Her origin reflects real world history of the Ethnic Cleansing in Yugoslavia where many women and children were rape by the Catholic Serbians due to their religion and race. The Catholic Serbians murder the men and rape the women to make them give birth to Serbians which is ethnic cleansing.
Due to the censorship, the anime is toned down and did not reveal the rape scenes. For the uncensored version, the nuns were strip of the clothes before being slaughtered. In the anime, Teresa has a nightmare about her sister Laura in a white flower field where an invisible man (the butterflies form an invisible man) strips her clothes off. It appears that the invisible man is "raping" Laura.
In the manga, the rape scenes are reveal. Croa gasses one of the nuns, and the soldiers proceed to rape the nuns before massacring them. During the scene where Croa reappears to kill Sasha and the others, Mafuyu locks Teresa in the closet similar to how Laura did. Compared to the anime, Teresa does not get locked in a closet.
