Maxine (マキシン, Makishin) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV and Suikoden Tactics. Maxine is an assassin who is contracted to kill the hero.


I was just bored, so I thought I'd drop you a line or two. Okay, that's all.

—  Maxine
Following the liberation of Razril, Maxine revealed Ramada as her employer.

Maxine was an assassin who was hired by Ramada to take the life of the bearer of the Rune of Punishment. She was a lone wolf with a strong professional streak. Even after being defeated repeatedly, she would continue in her attempts, attacking the hero several times.

Once defeated for good, she was found in Razril, where she would reveal her employer's identity before joining her former target as an ally.

On the Headquarters Ship, she also kept to herself, standing alone in the ship's infirmary. Following the Island Liberation War, Maxine disappeared saying that her contract had been fulfilled.

After the war, she lived on Hermitage Island, but when she received a letter from Ramada through Kyril, who delivered it for the Middleport Quest Guild, she became Kyril's companion without saying a word. It is unclear why she joined the group, as she never revealed the contents of the letter.

Her cold personality meant she continued to be unsociable, but she did have bonds with some of those who fought alongside her in the Island Liberation War. She also gradually began to open up more after meeting Simeon. According to Simeon, Maxine was a good person, who didn't want people to know it, leading to her self-isolation.

Simeon also cautioned Maxine against following the path of the assassin for her own piece of mind. It is not known if she ended up heeding his warning.
