Iron Lady: 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 Silk Hiding Steel in that she has to bow and obey and subvert them subtly, like pretending not to notice Budehuc Castle going into bussiness for itself.
Jeanne d'Archétype: Chris inherits her position from her dead superior and feels uncomfortable in it but carries it out for the good of Zexen's people.
Dark-Skinned Blond: 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.
Ascended Extra: Had one speaking line in Suikoden II, 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.
Guile Hero: Just look at how he takes down the entire Zexen Council in the manga. With little more than some rumors and some falsified evidence that's good enough to get the traitorous members to accidentally incriminate themselves.
Hidden Depths: He enjoys writing, and says he's writing a novel under a penname. It's widely believed that Hitman Bravo is that penname and that he wrote Erk's Adventures, which appears in the castle newspaper.
The Quisling: 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.
Even Evil Has Standards: 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.
The Illusionist: One of her major powers, and the key to Luc's Evil Plan. He basically used this in combination with his own Summon Magic to start a series of false flag attacks, throwing the Grasslands into war for the first phase of his plan.
Love Martyr: 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 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.
Implied Love Interest: His wife who he constantly mentions is implied to be the thousand year oldvampire 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.
Expy: Of Sid from the second game. Some fans wonder if they're the same person.
Luck-Based Mission: He randomly joins in battle if you wander a specific area with an open slot in your party. You can get him without meaning to in the very first battle, or you can spend over an hour running in circles without success.
