"He yells at it, saying, 'I have no time to deal with you!' The wolfie-doggie whimpers and runs off. This thing could tear out your jugular vein, but one word from our boy and it turns tail and runs. Some forest guardian Fluffy turned out to be."

Suikoden IV : Cast
In order of recap appearance.
1 : 2 : 3 : 4 : 5
The Hero
The Hero

Nickname(s): Marvin "Marvy" Gaye
Age: ?
Description: Our hero starts out as one of many Knights of Gaien and as the best friend and slave of one Snowe Vingerhut. And as we all know, best friend + slave = sex partner. He ends up with the totally shitty Rune of Punishment, because that's just what happens to heroes in Suikoden, but he's still much more bitter about Snowe dumping him like a prick than anything else.

First appearance:   Part 1

Snowe Vingerhut
Snowe Vingerhut

Nickname(s): Slowe Fingerbang
Age: 19
Description: Snowe is the hottest, richest young thing in Razril. As such, he's handed sweet positions in his daddy's military, not to mention innocent teenage boys with big doe eyes. When things start going not so well for Snowe we see that he's got more mental and emotional hangups than Billy Corgan and Robert Smith put together. Later he wears a dog collar and it's really hot, but he's still a wanker.

First appearance:   Part 1

Glen
Glen

Nickname(s): Scruffy McGee
Age: ?
Description: Poor Glen. All he's ever done for people is be a kind, supportive father figure. Well, except for Snowe, whom he seems to enjoy smacking around like a bitch. (Who doesn't?) And what does he get for his kindness and mentoring of others? The goddamn Rune of Punishment. And a load of underlings so incompetent that his whole Knighthood completely collapses after he's gone. God. Ungrateful kids.

First appearance:   Part 1

Katarina
Katarina

Nickname(s): none
Age: 30
Description: Glen's second-in-command in the Gaien Knights, Katarina seems like a pretty straight-laced, serious woman. Surprisingly...no, wait, she is actually serious and straight-laced. She does creep around after Glen like she's some scorned lover, which is actually pretty disturbing when you find out that he's her father. Yuck, she mixed her incest with her work relationship.

First appearance:   Part 1

Keneth
Keneth

Nickname(s): none
Age: 18
Description: Keneth's most interesting trait is his terrible, terrible hair. I just can't get over what a dated and awful style that is. But past the hair, he's probably the least annoying of the Hero's friends, simply because he's so boring. Keneth enjoys showing mild concern for the Hero when necessary, expositing, and sturgeon fishing. His turn-offs are people with even worse hair than his and heavy smokers.

First appearance:   Part 1

Tal
Tal

Nickname(s): Meathead
Age: 21
Description: Tal, like Pahn, enjoys eating. Also like Pahn, Tal is the blockhead fighter of his little clique. However, unlike in Pahn's case, I can't choose to get Tal killed. The one thing going in Tal's favor in my book is that he doesn't have one available Rune slot in the game that's taken up by a goddamn Boar Rune. But other than that, game designers, I'd just rather have Pahn.

First appearance:   Part 1

Jewel
Jewel

Nickname(s): none
Age: 16
Description: I already wasted Tal's entire bio on comparing him to Pahn, so let's just get out of the way that Jewel is like Cleo and move on. Other than subtly trying to horn her way in between the Hero and Snowe--the bitch--Jewel is nice enough and fun in that spunky dog kind of way. She, of all the Hero's friends, seems particularly loyal to him. Unsurprisingly, Snowe doesn't like her.

First appearance:   Part 1

Paula
Paula

Nickname(s): none
Age: 17
Description: A female clone of Suikoden's Kirkis so exact that I immediately feared Kirkis was immortal and transgendered. Paula really doesn't have much other personality to speak of, unless you count her taste for mangoes. Like most of the elves, she's soft-spoken and unobtrusive. She also doesn't have Kirkis's annoying habit of stating the insanely obvious, which can only be a good thing.

First appearance:   Part 1

Lord Vingerhut
Lord Vingerhut

Nickname(s): Lord Fingerbang
Age: ?
Description: Just how freaking rich is this guy? He's so rich, he owns the damn military. The Gaien Knights are his own fucking personal army of people in ugly clothing. Also, he's rich enough to pay everyone in Razril to like Snowe. I mean, that has to be the explanation. 'Cause Snowe's a dick.

First appearance:   Part 1

Chiepoo
Chiepoo

Nickname(s): none
Age: 19
Description: This marks the first Suikoden game in which there are none of the braindead dog people known as Kobolds. Instead, we get "Nay-Kobolds," slightly less braindead cat people from the island of Nay. I won't insult you by pointing out the pun in the name. Chiepoo does have a squeaky voice and is the irritating comic relief of the early game, but he's also adorable when he rubs his face with his paws and when his little cat-pupils dilate. Awww. And I'm not even a cat person.
