Appearances

Trishtan (トリスタン, Torisutan) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV and Suikoden Tactics. Trishtan is a hypochondriac warrior who manages to fight despite his fluctuating health problems.

History

I used to be able to do more before, but ever since I became ill, my condition has never truly recovered.

—  Trishtan

Trishtan was a former soldier in the Kingdom of Obel who resigned his position due to a psychosomatic illness that continued to plague him over the years. As such, he began treatment under Doctor Yu. Yu judged him to be healthy in every respect and identifying Trishtan as a hypochondriac, decided to indulge him and began treatment. Of course, the medicine prescribed to him was a placebo, made from wheat flour, but it nonetheless had the effect of relieving Trishtan's symptoms.

His treatment was forced to be discontinued when Yu joined the crew of the Headquarters Ship as they fled the Kingdom of Obel from the approaching Kooluk fleet. Once Obel was liberated from occupation by the Kooluk, Trishtan met Yu again and joined the crew of the Headquarters Ship at Yu's urging to continue his treatment. Aboard ship, Trishtan continued his treatment although he found fault with Carrie for giving him real medicine which, predictably, did nothing to relieve his symptoms. He also claimed that Nay-Kobold fur aggravated his condition and took up an all-carb diet to try and stay healthy.

Following the Island Liberation War, Trishtan returned to service in Obel, becoming captain of the royal guard.
