Krin (クリン, Kurin) is a supporting character in Suikoden. Krin is a thief who attempts to use situations for his own profit.
Krin was a petty thief who cannot really be considered anything of a real threat. While skilled at escaping and disappearing, he lacked any real cunning as a thief and was usually dreaming of bigger heists, making him prone to blunders in the present. He was seen operating in Lenankamp, breaking into one house and stealing the savings of another person from their room at the Keyaki Inn.
During the Gate Rune War, he attempted to steal the sword Kirinji from Lepant's mansion in Kouan, both directly and by trying to manipulate McDohl, only to fail both times. Still, he did not discard his dreams of wealth, instead deciding to join the Toran Liberation Army having smelled the possibility of a profit from following the group.
He would prove useful during the war in espionage actions, helping to sneak the Liberation Army into Moravia to rescue Viktor and Warren. Even then, his cowardice was clear as he maintained he would abandon the party at the first sign of trouble, much to Kasumi's ire. The two had a volatile relationship, with Krin mocking Kasumi for her crush on the hero.
At the end of the war, Krin looted Gregminster Palace before disappearing with his ill-gotten gains.
