The hero (主人公, Shujinkō) is the protagonist of Suikoden Tierkreis. He is a good-natured youth from Citro Village, passionately willing to fight for his beliefs, no matter the odds.

He is also mentioned, but never seen, in Genso Suikoden Tierkreis Hoshikuzu no Shiro, as the missing son of that world's Nameless Hero.


The hero originated in a different world of the Infinity, the son of a Nameless Hero, who was lost in an accident through a Gateway. Appearing in his current world, the infant hero was an orphan, found by Rajim's wife as a baby and raised as a child in Citro Village.

He would grow to become a positive and spontaneous youth. He was also a natural leader with a strong sense of justice and a strong will, never willing to give up. As he originated from another world, he was unable to travel through the Infinity, the original Gateway he passed through having since been lost. Once he learned of his origins, he was not overly dismayed (beyond not being able to see these other worlds) as he considered the people of Citro Village his true family.

Growing up peacefully in Citro Village, his life would be changed when a routine laggart patrol would bring him into contact with the Chronicle of the Shining Legacy, awakening his potential as a Starbearer. In the process of investigating the Chronicles, he would come into conflict with the Order of the One True Way, opposing the aggressive spread of their doctrine.

Eventually, he would come to form a Company to oppose the Order, alongside his childhood friends. While his friends were able to give him strength, his mentor Dirk would align himself with the Order, becoming a fierce enemy. The Company initially formed an alliance with the Magedom of Janam, but this agreement eventually fell apart, the hero choosing his own way to fight the Order.

Through his experiences, such as meeting the Furious Roar, retaking Pharamond, and encountering the Scribes, the hero would learn more and more about the Chronicles, world fusion, and eventually of the threat of the One King. Learning the truth, the hero staked everything on preventing the Order's plans.

Once the One King descended on the world, the hero was able to defeat the being through the power of the Chronicles and the Starbearers, not just of his world but of many, many different worlds attacking simultaneously. A certified hero after the war, the hero continued to lead the Company in his own way, continuing to find his own way to live freely.


The hero of Suikoden Tierkreis has no in-game name but is referred to as Sieg (シグ, Shigu) in an audio CD released as a pre-order bonus for the game in Japan. This is the name most in use by the English-speaking fandom.
