The Suikoden series is known for its large cast of characters. Seven games in the series focus on the 108 Stars, the characters recruitable by the player. There are also allies, antagonists, NPCs, historical persons, and entire casts of side-games as well as characters introduced in publications and manga.
This all adds up to a total of over 1,000 unique characters appearing in the series over the decades.

Seneca held a sharp wit and had a way with words, always prepared with a snappy remark. She is also said to have had a refreshing, care-free personality, which contrasted greatly with that of the much more serious Andarc who she would constantly tease.

The 108 Stars, also called Starbearers and the Stars of Destiny are a recurring feature of the Suikoden series. They are the 107 allies of the player, tied together by destiny. Though bonded by fate, not all Stars are friendly or even on the same side as the player.
Nor are the 108 Stars always static. Depending on player choice, some Stars may replace others. A table of the 108 Stars in each game can be found at the 108 Stars page.
