Odessa Silverberg (オデッサ・シルバーバーグ, Odessa Shirubābāgu) is a major character in Suikoden. Odessa is the leader of the Toran Liberation Army whose strength and ideals inspired the Liberation Army throughout the war.
Odessa was noted for her tenderness and strength, as well as her determination never to turn her back on those who needed aid. These attributes drove her to fall for Achilles and, later, Flik. These attributes bolstered her reputation with those sympathetic to her cause.
Despite her birth into an aristocratic family, Odessa developed a sincere concern for how people were suffering under the corruption of the Scarlet Moon Empire after meeting Achilles, who was involved in an anti-imperial movement. Odessa would eventually found the Toran Liberation Army with the express goal of opposing misrule and overthrowing the Imperial regime, beginning the Gate Rune War. (more...)
