Oskar (オスカル, Osukaru) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV. Oskar is the close friend of Deborah who has a mysterious past.

History

Deborah is my close friend, but I also owe my life to her. If it weren't for her. I'd probably be just a...

—  Oskar
Oskar was impacted deeply by the loss of his tea-drinking friend.

Oskar was an androgynous-looking fellow whose daily routine consisted of a cup of tea and a chat with his friend Deborah at the inn in Middleport.

It seems that in the past Oskar was involved in illegal activities, but details are unknown due to his reluctance to speak about his past. In fact, Oskar was not his original name. At that time, he was helped out by Deborah and the two of them soon forged a close friendship. Once Deborah joined the Allied Forces, Oskar found himself extremely lonely and would force himself onto the Headquarters Ship at the earliest opportunity, reuniting with his friend.

Following the Island Liberation War, Oskar would return to Middleport, resuming his daily routine with Deborah at the inn.

Confession

Confession
Keen You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Oskar My, sounds rather difficult...I wonder if I'll be able to answer properly.
Keen Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?
Oskar That would be Deborah! Whenever Deborah finds something that catches her interest, she just wanders off on her own. I ALWAYS get left behind! And Deborah says we're friends!
Keen Then, would you tell me what you think of the Hero?
Oskar Let me think...At first, I thought he was a kind of snobbish boy, but...He's even allowed someone like me to be here...I'm grateful for him.
Keen Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Oskar ...The other day...I tried to sneak into the women's bath, thinking there probably wouldn't be anyone there...I know, that was wrong of me...B-But someone had already beat me to it!! What's with that Reinbach guy?! He had all these rose petals floating in the water!!
Forgiven
Oskar Oh...Oh!! Thanks goodness!
Punished
Oskar ...!! N-Nooooooo!!
