Shun Min (シュンミン, Shunmin) is a character who appears in Suikoden V and is mentioned in Suikoden II. She is the daughter of Retso, one of the four lords of the Black Dragon Group.
Shun Min was a young girl who helped her father Retso as he toiled in the cafeteria in Raftfleet. She was a gentle, kind girl who loved the fish she raised for consumption, a skill she learned from her mother. Because of this, she was insistent that people fully eat the fish that had given up their lives. The loss of her mother at a young age also gave Shun Min a maturity beyond her years as she strove to support her father.
She would join the Imperial City Recapture Army along with her father, helping to raise the fish at Ceras Lake for her father's kitchen. At the castle, she worked excitedly but also found time to make friends and relax, taking in Chisato's puppet show and spending time with Eresh, Lelei and Haswar. She would declare that she would only ever marry someone more skilled at cooking than her own father.
Following the Sun Rune War, Shun Min grew into a beautiful young woman, eventually becoming the lover of Hai Yo while her father became one of the Black Dragon Group's four grand masters. She opposed the Black Dragon Group's Dragon Plan and so stole the Moon Bird Recipe.
However, in her attempt to steal the recipe, Shun Min was fatally wounded and died after passing on the Moon Bird Recipe to Hai Yo, imploring him to keep it out of the hands of the Black Dragon Group.
- If she died in the same year Suikoden II takes place, Shun Min would have died at the age of 23.
