Craig Laden (クレイグ・ラーデン, Kureigu Rāden) is a supporting character in Suikoden V. Craig Laden is the honorable commander of the Feitas Dragon Cavalry.

History

Craig Laden served as the leader of the Feitas Dragon Cavalry. He was a strict ruler with a rigid view towards the rules and traditions of the Dragon Cavalry but was also possessed with a warmth and kindness. He would recommend Miakis, daughter of a good friend of his, to the Queen's Knights, recognizing her talent but being unwilling to compromise on the Dragon Cavalry's exclusionary gender regulations.

Initially during the Sun Rune War, he had the Dragon Cavalry maintain its neutral position, as per its directive. When the New Armes Kingdom also invaded, Craig Laden would still insist on neutrality, as the Godwin Faction had stolen the dragon horse eggs and were keeping them hostage. Once the Prince had rescued them, however, Craig would repay this action by entering the war on the side of the Imperial City Recapture Army, fighting against the Armes invaders and their collaborators.

Following the war, Craig, ashamed of the harm he felt his inflexibility caused, would resign from his position as commander of the Dragon Cavalry, handing the reigns of command to Rahal, with the expressed intent of facilitating reform in the order.
