'''Cast of Characters'''
----

!'''VideoGame/SuikodenIII'''

!!The Flame Champion
* BigGood: Leader of the Fire Bringer who drove Harmonia out of the Grasslands.
* TheChosenOne: By the True Fire Rune
* CompositeCharacter: His overall design is a mixture of both [[SuikodenI Tir McDohl]] and [[SuikodenII Riou]].
* {{Expy}}: Somewhat resembles [[Manga/{{Saiyuki}} Son Goku]].
* FolkHero: To Grassland tribes. Have fun by naming him classical names like 'Hercules' or 'Robin Hood'.
* HelloInsertNameHere: You can call the hero any name you wish.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Red fire powers and a red/white outfit for the legendary leader and warrior.
* LegacyCharacter: [[spoiler: Anyone who wields the True Fire Rune after him inherits the Flame Champion title, and if you choose, his name.]]
* MagneticHero: Implied as he united all the grassland tribes together.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]].
* NoNameGiven
* PlayingWithFire: Uses True Fire.
* PosthumousCharacter
* SimpleStaff
* [[TakeUpMySword Take Up My Rune]]
* [[spoiler: WhoWantsToLiveForever: He didn't. Gave up his True Rune and immortality so he could live the rest of his life with the woman he loved.]]

!!Hugo
* BornWinner
* [[TheChiefsDaughter The Chief's Son]]
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Of the three, he's the one with classic old fashioned heroism. He's gotta help someone in trouble.
* DarkSkinnedBlond
* {{Determinator}}
* GreenEyes
* HeroicBastard
* KnifeNut
* TheLeader:
* LegacyCharacter / ElementalPowers: Canonically, he will inherit the [[PlayingWithFire True Fire Rune]]. But depending on who you choose as the TFR successor, he'll either have the [[ShockAndAwe True Lightning Rune]] (If the player chose Geddoe) or the the [[KillItWithWater True]] [[MakingASplash Water]] [[AnIcePerson Rune]] (If the player chose Chris). He is also the only one of the three main characters who has access to inheriting all three Runes.
* LightningBruiser: He's fast, he's powerful, and he has a griffin.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: By Grassland standards.
* WarriorPrince

!!Chris Lightfellow
* ActionGirl
* BattleBallgown: Her suit of armor.
* BigFancyHouse: Lightfellow is a well to do family after all.
* TheCaptain: Of the Zexen Knights, with the power and respect to back it up.
* CoolHorse
* DefrostingIceQueen: Staring off she's as rigid and cold as her armor, but mellows a bit by the end game.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Cecile, Ayame and Yun are all quite fond of her.
* IronLady: When in command of the Zexen Knights she is confident and assertive, and her all male unit are quick to fall in line and follow orders. Before the Zexen Council however, she is more SilkHidingSteel in that she has to bow and obey and subvert them subtly, like pretending not to notice Budehuc Castle going into bussiness for itself.
* JeanneDArchetype: Chris inherits her position from her dead superior and feels uncomfortable in it but carries it out for the good of Zexen's people.
* KnightInShiningArmor: Not as optimistic as most but she tries.
* LadyOfWar: Watch how easily she handles Hugo in chapter 1 and say she isn't.
* LettingHerHairDown: The tail end of Chapter 2 through the beginning of Chapter 4, only, sadly.
* TheLeader:
* LegacyCharacter / ElementalPowers: Canonically, she will inherit the [[KillItWithWater True]] [[MakingASplash Water]] [[AnIcePerson Rune]] from [[spoiler:her father]] Jimba. But if the player makes her the [[PlayingWithFire True Fire Rune]] successor, Hugo will inherit the TWR. But Chris can never inherit the [[ShockAndAwe True Lightning Rune]].
* LightningBruiser
* LonelyRichKid: No siblings and no friends, only co-workers.
* MagicKnight: Of ThePaladin variety if she inherits the [[HealingHands True]] [[MakingASplash Water]] [[AnIcePerson Rune]]. She's a bad mage otherwise. Unless you grind, there's a good chance she'll never even get a 4th-level spell slot.
* MightyGlacier
* MilitaryBrat: Her dad was a knight before her.
* TheOjou: Lightfellow is a high up family, but her unit treats her like royalty.
* ParentalAbandonment: Her dad disappeared and her mom isn't around.
* PurpleEyes
* RedBaron: The Silver Maiden, The White Hero of Zexen.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: In the Zexen knights there are no females but her.
* StatuesqueStunner
* TomboyishName
* ZettaiRyouki: The tail end of Chapter 2 through the beginning of Chapter 4 only. Again sadly.

* AntiHero
* {{Badass}}
* BrokenAce
* TheCaptain: Of the 12th Defense Force unit of Harmonia, with the power and respect to back it up.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Has black hair and black eyes.
* DarkIsNotEvil
* EyePatchOfPower
* GoodIsNotNice
* HandicappedBadass: He's missing an eye. Yet, he still kicks ass.
* TheLeader
* KnightInSourArmor
* LegacyCharacter / ElementalPowers / DiscardAndDraw: Canonically, he's always been the [[ShockAndAwe True Lightning Rune]] bearer, but the player can make him inherit the [[PlayingWithFire True Fire Rune]]. If the player does, Hugo will take his TLR. But Geddoe can never inherit the [[KillItWithWater True]] [[MakingASplash Water]] [[AnIcePerson Rune]].
* LightningBruiser
* MagicKnight: Equally skilled with sword and magic.

* [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Dad]]
* BigFancyHouse: Castle actually but same diff.
* BlueBlood
* HeroicBastard
* IHaveNoSon: His dad sent him to Budehuc so he could forget about him.
* MagikarpPower: While canonically a NonActionGuy Thomas is gifted with a huge number of skill slots, making him one of the most customizable characters in the game. He starts out at level 1, with weak equipment and a sword that hasn't been upgraded even once, but if you take the time build him up you'll find that [[LethalJokeCharacter just because he doesn't like fighting doesn't mean he's bad at it]].
* MartialPacifist
* MessianicArchetype
* NiceGuy: Really nice. The castle inhabitants don't like him but he just stays polite.
** They warm up to him over the span of his chapters, eventually becoming fiercely loyal to protecting Thomas.
* NonActionGuy
* ThePollyanna: He has a DarkestHour in his Gaiden but other than that he's always optimstic.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: His characterization is a departure from the typical Tenkai Star. See NonActionGuy and SupportingProtagonist for details. He's also the first Tenkai to not get a True Rune, and the only Tenkai to not even get a unique rune.
* SupportingProtagonist: He is the Tenkai star, but he isn't TheHero or BigGood of the game.
* TheUnfavorite
* WideEyedIdealist

* [[spoiler:[[LukeIAmYourFather Chris I Am Your Father]]]]
* DarkSkinnedBlond: [[spoiler:Presumably he's gotten a suntan during his years living on the Karayan plains, because while as Wyatt his skin wasn't nearly as dark. Though still noticeably darker than normal for a Zexen.]]
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]
* KnightInShiningArmor: [[spoiler: Formerly, though he may still fit as a Karayan example.]]

!!Sergeant Joe
* TheAce

* OurGryphonsAreDifferent: A classical griffin.
* PowerupMount: Put Hugo on a team with him, and Hugo will ride and attack simultaneously with him.
* TeamPet: For Hugo's chapters.
* UnfortunateNames: ''FUBAR?'' Seriously? Well, f-ing up the enemies beyond reason with Hugo on its back seems more likely, though...
** SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Hoover" is a valid alternate reading of his Japanese name.

!!Lucia
* ActionMom
* DarkSkinnedBlond
* [[GoodParents Good Parent]]: For Hugo.
* OlderAndWiser: She's mellowed out considerably from her more HotBlooded days from ''SuikodenII''.
* WhipItGood: Her weapon of choice.

!!Beecham
* AscendedExtra: Had one speaking line in ''SuikodenII'', but no portrait, sprite, or any real importance to the story other than to give Lucia someone to talk to at one point. Became a full-fledged Star of Destiny in ''III''.

* DeadpanSnarker
* EmbarrassingNickname: His mother calls him "Percy" in front of Chris, much to his chagrin.
* TheDutifulSon
* MrFanservice
* KnightInShiningArmor
* TheLancer / TheSmartGuy
* TallDarkAndHandsome

!!Salome
* BadassBookworm
* GuileHero: Just look at how he [[spoiler:takes down the entire Zexen Council]] in the manga. With little more than [[spoiler:some rumors and some falsified evidence that's good enough to get the traitorous members to accidentally incriminate themselves]].

!!Franz
* BladeOnAStick
* TheNeidermeyer: His status as TheQuisling earned him the ire of his subordinates along with most of the residents of Le Beque.
* TheQuisling: A rare sympathetic example; third class citizens are litle more than slaves. He sees promotion to second class (which would allow them to be more akin to a self-governing but subordinate kingdom under Harmonia) as the most realistic way to help his fellows.

!!Sarah
* AntiVillain: Types II and III, with a dash of IV.

* ChildMage [[ChildProdigy Prodigy]]
* DarkActionGirl / DarkMagicalGirl
* TheDarkChick
* TheDragon: To Luc.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Played with. She does what she can to keep casualties to a minimum, but if Luc gives her an order, she follows it without question.
* [[spoiler:TheIllusionist: One of her major powers, and the key to Luc's EvilPlan. He basically used this in combination with his own SummonMagic to start a series of false flag attacks, throwing the Grasslands into war for the first phase of his plan.]]
* LoveMartyr: Luc is by no means abusive towards her in any way, but she is pretty much incapable of saying no to him. She might not like it, but she will kill untold amounts of people, plunge the entire world into war, and be complicit in a plan that [[spoiler:would kill '''billions''' including possibly '''God''' by destroying a True Rune]], basically because Luc told her to. She willingly pushes herself to the point of exhaustion for him.
* MakingASplash: Possessed a Flowing Rune ([[UpToEleven a powered-up version of the Water Rune]]) from birth.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: Luc is only 30, but he still has the True Wind Rune.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong
** LoveMakesYouEvil: Kind of.
* NoCureForEvil: Averted. She has a Flowing Rune, and given her own affinity with magic, it's not a bad idea to ShootTheMedicFirst whenever she's on the battlefield. Hopefully before [[LightningBruiser Yuber]] or [[GlassCannon Luc]] nukes the party.
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath]]
* RescueRomance: Her relationship with Luc.
* SquishyWizard: A [[GlassCannon Chizan star]], no less.
* SubordinateExcuse
* [[spoiler:TogetherInDeath: With Luc.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: To Luc.
* VillainProtagonist
* [[spoiler:ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: In Luc's storyline, she stands up to Yuber, basically saying [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu she'll put him down herself]] if he even thinks about turning on Luc. Thankfully, Luc was able to calm them both down.]]

* EvilGenius
* EvilRedhead
* ItRunsInTheFamily
* [[spoiler:KarmaHoudini: Plays a key role in orchestrating the whole war, in which many thousands die, and gets ''everything'' he wants out of it while suffering no negative consequences whatsoever. Subverted in the manga adaptation, where instead his reputation is ruined and he has to go into hiding under an assumed name. In this adaptation, Caesar concludes that Albert's intention all along was to minimize the casualties of Luc's scheme, and Albert confirms this.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:He had no loyalty whatsoever to Luc. In fact, he just wanted to take part in the war to make a name for himself.]]
* ManInWhite
* NonActionGuy
* SiblingYinYang

** There is an [[http://ramsus-kun.webs.com/Suikogaiden/Home.htm english patch]] for those interested.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: His wife who he constantly mentions is implied to be [[spoiler:the [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld thousand year old]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] Sierra Mikain. And given that he looks like he hasn't aged a day in the 15 years between the games, many fans have speculated that she turned him into a vampire.]]
* KnifeNut: While his GaidenGame had him DualWielding a pair of large swords to great effect, this time around he uses knives instead.
* NothingUpMySleeve: And he has some sort of knife-launcher for them hidden up his sleeve.
