Kiba Windamier (キバ ・ウィンダミア, Kiba Windamia) is a character in Suikoden II. Kiba serves as the general of the 3rd Highland Army, aided by his son and adjutant, Klaus.


To lead, you must first die in your mind. Let go of life, and embrace it!!!

—  Kiba Windamier

Kiba Windamier was a renowned general hailing from the Highland Kingdom, who gained prominence through his exceptional military exploits. From a prominent military family, he first rose to fame during his debut battle by defending Fort Retto with a mere 100 soldiers, thwarting a force of 3,000 troops from the City-State of Jowston. This resounding victory earned him a prominent position within the Highland Army.

This is the military feint called "Lying Through Your Teeth".

Kiba further solidified his reputation by quelling revolts within Highland and fighting alongside allies in the Holy Kingdom of Harmonia, leveraging their historical ties. His unwavering loyalty to King Agares Blight contributed to his esteemed status, even though he apparently received meager compensation for his distinguished service. He respected Luca Blight as a general, even if he did not agree with the prince's "excesses."

By the time of the Dunan Unification War, Kiba held the esteemed position of general in the 3rd Highland Army. He supported the war with Jowston based on the "surprise attack" on the Unicorn Brigade and the historical animosity between the two countries.

During this conflict, he and his son, Klaus, engaged in multiple attacks on Jowston territories. Their initial attempt to capture Two River City by sowing discord and subsequently breaking a peace treaty was thwarted by the intervention of the New State Army, compelling them to retreat.

Do you think he's still sore about the whole patricide thing?

Later in the war, General Kiba's forces occupied Radat Town, using it as a base to target the New State Army Headquarters. However, a clever strategy employed by General Ridley Wizen led to Kiba's forces being ambushed and surrounded. Adding to his plight, the 4th Highland Army, commanded by Rowd, refused to provide assistance, leaving Kiba's forces isolated and vulnerable. Following his capture by the New State Army, Kiba received the news of King Agares' demise at the hands of Luca Blight, resulting in a profound shift in his perspective.

Just moments ago, Kiba had insisted he and Klaus be given a warrior's death, without any consideration given to the idea of defection. However, this news implied Agares' death at Luca's hands. Kiba's loyalty to Agares precluded any notions of accepting Luca's kingship as it came as a result of patricide.

Taken out any life insurance policies lately?

Persuaded by Shu, Kiba chose to relinquish his warrior's pride and defected to the New State Army, recognizing the severe threat posed by Luca Blight's brutal rule to both Jowston and Highland. He fought valiantly alongside his new allies, although the sense of defeat and the inability to avenge King Agares personally weighed heavily on him. The stigma of betrayal also weighed on him and it was only his firm belief in the hero that allowed him to fight on.

During the New State Army's assault on the Matilda Knightdom, Kiba wholeheartedly embraced a strategic sacrifice proposed by Shu. He willingly led a token force, comprised of the men who defected alongside him, to attack and hold the Mercenary Fortress in eastern Muse Principality, knowing the likelihood of survival was slim. Before departing, he would share his sense of pride in Klaus with his son, both knowing this was the last time they would speak.

Kiba executed the plan with remarkable precision, effectively dividing the Highland Army and drawing out the forces of Leon Silverberg. After succeeding in his ploy, he attempted to order his men to surrender and return to Highland but they refused, standing with him to the end. Sadly, he sustained mortal wounds in the battle and passed away as a true warrior, having embraced the ideals of his allies and committing to the ultimate sacrifice.
