Nao (ナオ, Nao) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV. Nao is a puzzling horticulturist with a passion for mint.


Darling mint... Please give them... lots of care...

—  Nao
N-no, I don't...?

Nao was a mysterious man who appeared behind a locked door on the Headquarters Ship fifth deck. The door itself was mysterious as Tov had no recollection of planning or building such a room but Nao offered no explanation for this, or his presence on board, beyond a desire to cultivate mint. His mint collection would take up one half of the entire room.

Mao's cultivation of mushrooms on the other side of the room would distress and annoy Nao greatly. He would very rarely leave the cultivation room, engrossed as he was in his passion. Following the Island Liberation War, he would run off and hide, muttering about hating dry places and seeking a more humid place for his work.



Keen You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Nao Oh...I had no idea...
Keen Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?
Nao Mushrooms...You can't...Mao...You can't grow mushrooms.
Keen Then, would you tell me what you think of the Hero?
Nao Sir Lazlo? I wish...he'd grow lots of mint...Heh...heh...hehehe...
Keen Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Nao ...Heh...Hehehe...Hehehe...
Nao Heh...heh...


After recruiting Mao, once some in-game time has passed, rest in your room and leave via the door and Tov will speak of the room on the ship's bottom deck yet again. Enter it and Nao will join you.
