Kanak (カナック, Kanakku) is a supporting character in Suikoden. Kanak is one of Anji's subordinates in their pirate gang.


Hi there.

—  Kanak

Kanak was a member of the lake pirate crew that operated on Lake Toran. He served as part of the crew under the leadership of Anji and alongside fellow crew member Leonardo. Unlike the stereotypical boisterous and roughneck persona often attributed to lake pirates, Kanak exhibited a friendly and even-tempered nature.

During combat situations, Kanak displayed a surprising level of ferocity and showed his exceptional physical strength, particularly when defending his friends and allies. This quality was evident when confronted by the Imperial Army, who witnessed his formidable prowess in battle.

When visited by the Toran Liberation Army, Kanak was the only member of the pirate crew not to act disparagingly towards the group. Kanak would follow Anji and Leonardo into the force following their defeat by McDohl, Tai Ho, and Yam Koo.

Throughout the course of the Gate Rune War, Kanak remained a steadfast member of the Liberation Army. He possessed a quiet demeanor that set him apart, even when compared to the likewise reserved Humphrey Mintz. Despite his silence, Kanak was known to wear a consistent smile and exhibited a friendly disposition, welcoming interactions with those he encountered.

After the culmination of the Gate Rune War and the subsequent formation of the Toran Republic, Kanak continued to stand by his friends, faithfully embracing their new business venture.
