Gateway: Characters
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.

Featured Character
Flik (フリック, Furikku) is a character in Suikoden and Suikoden II who also makes a cameo in Genso Suikogaiden Vol.1. Flik is a mercenary who joined the Toran Liberation Army and the New State Army.

Flik is a wandering swordsman. Born and raised in Warriors' Village, Flik left the village on his Manhood Ceremony and eventually became a mercenary. After a number of years working as a mercenary, Flik saved Odessa Silverberg from some Scarlet Moon Empire soldiers; enraptured, he quickly joined her cause and eventually became Vice-Commander of the Toran Liberation Army.

Though Flik grew up in Warriors' Village and followed some of their traditions, such as the naming of his sword, he did not frequently return to the village and was not considered to have completed his trial of manhood.

Physically, Flik was said to be a handsome man, a trait that got him unwanted attention from women at times, including with Kimberly, Rina, and Nina. (more...)

108 Stars
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.
