Eresh (エレシュ, Ereshu) is a supporting character in Suikoden V. Eresh is a mysterious young girl possessing magical powers far beyond her years.
Eresh is a very young girl who wears the uniform of a member of Nagarea's senior clergy, a position that is not available to people under the age of 40, no matter their ability. Her prowess with magic, however, is more than powerful enough to earn such a lofty position. She frequently speaks in the third person.
She was found by the Prince in the ruins of the Ancient Armes Dynasty found at the bottom of the Big Hole. After they helped Eresh out of her predicament, she would join the Imperial City Recapture Army in gratitude. Although she and Jeane appear to know each other, their relationship is completely unknown.
Name and Weapon
Eresh's name most likely stems from Ereshkigal, the name of the Sumerian goddess of the underworld.
Her weapons upgrade as Erra (エラ Era), Gugalnanna (グガルアンナ Gugaruan'na) and Ner-gal (ネ・エリ・ガル Ne eri Garu). In Sumerian mythology Gugalana is the name of Ereshkigal's husband, in Babylonian it's Nergal. Erra is the Akkadian god of plague and often synonymous with Nergal.
- Despite not being connected, if you recruit Eresh, you are unable to recruit Euram Barows, and vice versa, as they share the same star.
