Appearances

Karen (カレン, Karen) is a character in Suikoden II. Karen is a popular dancer in Kuskus Town who joined the New State Army.

History

A woman named Karen usually dances here...a real knockout, she is. Everyone loves her.

—  Man

Karen was a popular dancer in her hometown, Kuskus. She was trained by the famous dancer Mina in the Toran Republic, who had previously fought in the Gate Rune War.

Her flamboyant and lively dances could uplift any patron. Though normally a shy person, Karen's personality seemed to change radically when she was dancing, fueled by the elation of performing.

During the Dunan Unification War, Karen agreed to join the New State Army after its young leader was able to keep up with her in a dancing contest. She did many performances at the New State Army's headquarters, raising moral for the soldiers despite feeling a bit out of place herself.

After the war, Karen returned to dancing in Kuskus, where she remained popular with the men, although not with their wives.
