Shiramine (シラミネ, Shiramine) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV. Shiramine is a skilled dragnet fisher and friend of Ugetsu.


I have been a fisherman all my life, but never have I caught a mermaid before! It was unbelievable!

—  Shiramine
If you don't get caught by a fishing vessel, then it wasn't a real night out.

Shiramine was a talented fisherman and a close friend of Ugetsu. He was a gentle and caring sort who cared a lot for his friend. Shiramine also looks up to Ugetsu's fishing abilities and strives to be more like him.

When Ugetsu joined the crew of the Headquarters Ship, Shiramine ended up being caught by his fishing rod and dragged aboard. Once cut loose, he agreed to also join the crew, working with Ugetsu at the rear of the ship to catch fish in his net. He would end up accidentally catching the mermaid Lilan with his net.

Following the Island Liberation War, Shiramine would end up becoming a fishing instructor in Razril, taking on Tal as one of his students.



Keen You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Shiramine I-I see...
Keen Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?
Shiramine Hmm...Sir Lazlo, perhaps? That man...I think he may be working himself too hard.
Keen Then, would you tell me what you think of the Hero?
Shiramine As I said earlier, perhaps he works too much...Well, I'm not saying that it's necessarily a bad thing, but...
Keen Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Shiramine Hmm...Ugetsu...I am able to tell myself that I still have far to go because of him. I am grateful that I am able to spend my days on board this ship with him!
Shiramine Whew...I experienced a bit of a cold sweat...
Shiramine Hugh...whoa!!


After recruiting Ugetsu, speak to Ugetsu on board the Headquarters Ship - Fishing Deck (located on the 2nd deck rear, next to the elevator) and Shiramine will join you.
