Taisuke (タイスケ, Taisuke) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV. Taisuke is a passionate bath maker, always looking to perfect his techniques.


Baths are nice! I've always got a fresh bath ready! You can take a dip as often as you want in the day!

—  Taisuke

Taisuke was a man with an unprecedented passion for baths. The leader of the Headquarters Ship came across Taisuke sampling the hot springs on the Deserted Island. Inviting him aboard, Taisuke jumped at the chance to install a bath on the enormous vessel.

On board, Taisuke's bath proved instantly popular as he maintained a very comfortable bath that was kept heated at all times with boiling water. Despite his success though, he was frustrated that people like Jango and Brec, as well as the ship's compliment of Nay-Kobolds, either disliked baths or created a large mess for him to clean up on the rare occasions they did use his baths.

Following the Island Liberation War, Taisuke continued his travels, spreading the joy of baths throughout the land, building a succession of luxurious bath houses.



After obtaining the Headquarters Ship, speak to Taisuke at Deserted Island - Subterranean Lake. Leave the cave and pick up Taisuke's Clothes outside the cave. Bring the item to him at the Subterranean Lake. Leave the cave again, then return to the lake again and speak to Taisuke and he will join you.
