Joshua Levenheit (ヨシュア・レーベンハイト, Yoshua Rēbenhaito) is a supporting character in Suikoden. Joshua was the captain of the Knights of the Dragon's Den during the Gate Rune War.


Commander Tir, when war breaks out, we'll rush to your aid.

—  Joshua Levenheit

As bearer of the Dragon Rune, one of the 27 True Runes, Joshua Levenheit led the Knights of the Dragon's Den as its commander. Having the ability to control dragons, he would be the eternal leader of Dragon Knights.

Oh you're gonna pay a lot for this one, Joshua.

Although Joshua had allied with Emperor Barbarosa during the War of Succession, the growing corruption in the Scarlet Moon Empire as well as its shift in attitude towards the Dragon Knights earned Joshua's indignation.

During the Gate Rune War, Joshua was convinced to align his forces with the Toran Liberation Army after talking with Humphrey Mintz and receiving the aid of Liukan in curing their poisoned dragons.

With the help of Joshua and Knights of the Dragon's Den, the power of the Liberation Army grew immensely. Joshua usually coordinated the Dragon Knights' war effort from Goya. However, Joshua did arrive at the last battle, where he used his Dragon Rune to amplify Leknaat's half of the Gate Rune and thus overpowered Windy's half of the Gate Rune, sending all her summoned monsters back where they came from.

After the war, Joshua continued in his position as Captain of the Dragon Knights. At some point before the War of the Champions he would pass on the Dragon Rune to Milia, but the circumstances are unknown.
