Esmeralda (エスメラルダ, Esumeraruda) is a character in Suikoden. She is a naive and idle woman of aristocratic distinction.


Haven't you brought me the "Opal Ring" yet? I'm not that patient, you know.

—  Esmeralda

Esmeralda is a slightly ambiguous and enigmatic but mostly elegant and naïve woman fond of dressing fashionably and luxuriously. Like Vincent de Boule, she appears to be an aristocrat of the Scarlet Moon Empire, but any details on her noble name or her identity besides her gender seems to be shrouded in mystery.

The most laid-back kidnapping ever.

During the Gate Rune War, she was invited to join the Toran Liberation Army. Esmeralda misunderstood and believed she was being kidnapped. Believing her beauty to be a curse which drew the interests of the Liberation Army, she demanded the Opal as a token of good faith. The Liberation Army at the time was only comprised of a few and so recruited the unreasonable companion.

She had only a handful of friends such as Vincent and Milich Oppenheimer (and later Simone Verdricci) and they commonly took tea together. After the Gate Rune War, it appears Esmeralda lived an elegant life in a house with a garden full of roses in Antei. Given that she was a former Scarlet Moon Empire noble but lost her nobility following the war, she must have inherited her fortune.

Three years following the Gate Rune War, Nash Latkje would be inadvertently teleported by Viki to Esmeralda's location while she was attending a tea party for herself, Milich, Vincent and Simone in a flamboyant room.

Theme of Narcissism
Kasios performance sprite.png

Esmeralda's theme is "Theme of Narcissism". She shares this song with both Vincent de Boule and Milich Oppenheimer. Unusually, it does not play when you first encounter Esmeralda in Antei or at any point before her recruitment.

Following recruitment, the song will play whenever the player speaks to Esmeralda at Toran Castle and will continue playing until the player either returns to the center of the castle or speaks with Kasios. It is song 28 on disc 1 of the official Genso Suikoden Original Game Soundtrack.
