Kasios (カシオス, Kashiosu) is a supporting character in Suikoden. Kasios is a passionate musician who had an undying respect for his muse, Milich Oppenheimer.


You must be here to hear me sing.

—  Kasios
I shall call you... Sound Test.

Kasios is a troubadour who swore loyalty for Milich Oppenheimer. Unlike Ivanov, who was forced to use his artistic talents for Milich's pleasure, Kasios was completely loyal to Milich due to the general's understanding and appreciation of music.

As Milich's personal bard, Kasios sang daily in his home at Scarleticia Castle. He had little interest in moral conflicts such as those between the Imperial Army and the Liberation Army, preferring to focus on his craft and those who appreciated it.

Still, Kasios joined the Toran Liberation Army, following his master and patron with the utmost loyalty. At Toran Castle, Kasios would perform a wide variety of songs upon request. His music and ballads would inspire and lift the spirits of a great many people within the army throughout the war.

Following the Gate Rune War, Kasios departed on a personal journey to spread the songs of the Liberation Army.

  • In Old Book Volume 5, Kasios' entry states him to be a woman. This is an error; Kasios is indeed a man. It also states that Kasios is in love with Milich, which is another mistranslation.
  • That said, several staff members also apparently confused Kasios for a woman.
