History

This marks the end for you, too...

—  Brandeau

Brandeau was a pirate that was once a close friend of both Kika and Edgar, being called Edgar's left arm. He would often find himself being the voice of reason to Edgar's more passionate nature and was already to pass on his calm advice.

When Edgar decided to attack the pirate Steele, Brandeau and Peck would fight alongside him. After Steele was defeated, he would use the Rune of Punishment, killing Edgar and costing Brandeau his left eye. Brandeau would then inherit the Rune of Punishment from the dead Steele.

With Edgar dead and Peck mutilated by the exploding Evil Eye, Brandeau felt he could not return to the Nest of Pirates and the two survivors would begin their own pirate band.

If he were a fisherman, he'd be Marlin Brandeau.

He would change, according to Kika, when he became the bearer of the Rune of Punishment. Following this, he would become a feared pirate all across the Island Nations region. His six-mast ship would become a symbol of fear for merchants and travelers in the region.

During the Island Liberation War, he would use the rune when he was finally cornered by the hero after an ill-fated attack on the hero's trade escort, losing his life to the rune's curse.

Gameplay

Main article: Pirate Brandeau (enemy)

Brandeau is fought as an boss event enemy in Suikoden IV twice, in two different forms. He is fought in the first boss battle of the game, alongside the Assassin. He will then be fought in a duel following that encounter.

Much later in the game, a shadow of him within the Rune of Punishment will be fought as Brandeau's Shadow.
