https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/suikoden4_lazlo_9_9.png
Tenkai Star
Voiced by: Takashi Ohara (Voice A) and Emi Ogawa (Voice B) (JP)

The Protagonist of Suikoden IV, his Canon Name is Lazlo. He is the Tenkai Star, also known as the Chief Star of Heaven, of the 108 Stars of Destiny.


  • Almighty Janitor: By the time of Suikoden Tactics, he acts as a random agent for Lino, who doesn't even bother to personally order him to join the new heroes. Lazlo, by that point, can freely destroy entire fleets with his True Rune. What nobody (including Lazlo) realizes is that by birthright he should be the crown prince.
  • A Taste of Power: Inverted: He wears the outfit of the Razril Knights at the beginning of the game, including their single-sword style. When he ditches the uniform for plot reasons and takes up his second sword, his attack power effectively doubles.
  • Blessed with Suck: The Rune of Punishment. Not only does it have the normal baggage of one of the True Runes, it actively drains the life of its bearer whenever they use it.
    • Subverted if you manage to recruit the 108 Stars Of Destiny, as it causes the rune to successfully transit to its Forgiveness phase (best demonstrated in Suikoden Tactics), as the True Rune will now heal him. Lazlo is apparently the first bearer in a very long time to survive to see that transition.
  • Blow You Away: In Tactics, his default elemental affinity is wind.
  • Cast from Lifespan/Cast from Hit Points: The Rune of Punishment has this effect on its bearer, Lazlo included. This is until he frees the soul of Glen Cott from the True Rune. However, if he doesn't recruit all of the Stars of Destiny, it will catch up to him.
  • Chick Magnet: He winds up with a harem of ladies due to the fact he recruits an awful lot of women and gets ship tease all over the place. Hell, at least two cliques of three get together to gush and giggle over him. One of said cliques even declares themselves his personal bodyguards.
    • Best summed up in the confessions of almost every female, which range from praising, gushing, Tsundere, worried, and lampshading his popularity. Lazlo himself seems more bemused by their actions than anything.
  • Combination Attack: Can perform the "Double Sword Attack" (with Kika), the "Friendship Attack/True Friends Attack (with Snowe), and the "Double Leader Attack" (in Tactics, with Kyril).
  • Conveniently an Orphan: His father is actually still alive. And by the end of the game, they have a very close relationship... without either of them having any clue that they're father and son.
  • Dual Wielding: His Weapon of Choice is a pair of swords.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Good thing you're big on the whole 'hard work' ethic, Lazlo. Your life depends on it.
  • Elemental Powers: In Naval Battles, Lazlo can use Rune Cannons of every element.
  • The Exile: He was cast out from Gaien when it was believed he killed Glen. It gets rescinded later.
  • Give Me Back My Wallet: The Golden Seal, entrusted to him by Lino En Kuldes, is stolen by Champo and Nalkul during a side-quest.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: "Child Lazlo" in the beginning of Suikoden Tactics.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: He starts with a training sword, like any other Gaien Knight, but loses it (and his armor) after being exiled and replaces it uses a pair of smaller swords.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Averted; Lazlo's hard work and dedication is what caused him to catch Glen's eye and be treated as a prodigy.
  • The Hero: He is The Protagonist and the central character, who unites the Island Nations against the invasion of the Kooluk Empire.
  • Heroic Mime: Interestingly, though, the player can select one of two voice sets for him, or go completely without one. As is typical of the Suikoden series, the main character does have (text-only) dialogue, but it comes entirely in the form of menu options for the player. Suikoden heroes tend to only talk when there's something important to say, apparently.
    • Averted in Tactics, where he speaks normally.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch:
    • After Lilin is rescued from Cray Trading Company's thugs, she comments that some of her sisters didn't make it. Lazlo is given the option to sink their fleeing ship, killing them.
    • Lazlo is also given the option to execute Snowe for betraying him and selling Razril to Kooluk, but by doing so you won't be able to recruit the 108 Stars of Destiny. And without the 108 Stars, the Rune of Punishment won't change into its Forgiveness Phase, which is necessary for Lazlo to survive in the ending.
  • Magnetic Hero: By necessity, with 107 potential recruits on offer.
  • Making a Splash: He has best affinity with the Water Rune.
  • Moses in the Bulrushes: He was washed up on Razril's shore as an orphaned toddler. He was then Happily Adopted by the Vingerhut family, who took him in as an adopted servant and playmate for their son, Snowe. The pair enrolled in the Gaien Marine Knights Academy together, where his dedication to hard work caught the eye of Commander Glen.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Lazlo has a lot of Fangirls in-universe. Must have something to do with the short-shorts...
  • One-Hit KO: "Voice of Death", the third attack of the True Rune of Punishment has a high probability of instant killing one enemy, and a 10% chance of killing Lazlo instead...
  • Power-Strain Blackout: He faints after each use of the Rune of Punishment, due to it draining its host's lifeforce with each use, until it finally kills them. This can be averted by successfully recruiting all 108 Stars of Destiny.
  • The Scapegoat: Gets framed for Glen's death.
  • Secret Character: You can recruit him in Tactics by using a Suikoden IV clear data data with all the characters recruited.
  • Secret Legacy: He's actually the lost Prince of Obel, who was lost to sea at the same time the Queen of Obel sacrificed herself. Ironically, the King of Obel later considers naming Lazlo as his successor, despite not realizing his true identity.
  • The Stoic: Not very expressive, particularly when compared to other Tenkai Stars. Many of the confessions comment how he's very serious, even when playing the lottery or relaxing.
  • Soul-Powered Engine: Inverted. Unlike the Soul Eater Rune, which gains power by consuming the souls of those who are dear to the wielder, the Rune of Punishment unlocks new abilities by freeing the souls of its past owners, who are stuck inside it.
  • The Unchosen One: He was not selected by destiny or anything: He received the rune, like so many others, because he got too close to someone that was being consumed by it.
  • Walking the Earth: He apparently vanished some time after things settled down in the Island Nations. Since the Rune of Punishment hasn't surfaced in over 150 years, it's possible that he's still alive and kicking out there somewhere, but keeping a low profile because he doesn't want to risk the Rune going back into its "Punishment" phase again (either through his death or losing the Rune).

    Snowe Vingerhut 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/suikoden4_snowe_4_6.png
Tenan Star
Voiced by: Kissho Taniyama (JP), Paul Stephen (EN)

A native of Razril and Lazlo's childhood friend. He and Lazlo trained to be Gaien Knights, and ultimately graduated together. Snowe is the Tenan Star, also known as the Dark Star, of the 108 Stars of Destiny.


  • And Your Reward Is Clothes: His outfits over the course of the game can be found in the sea.
  • Born Unlucky: Gameplay-wise, he has the lowest luck stat of all characters.
  • Character Development: His character arc parallels Lazlo's, and since he's more expressive.
  • Chick Magnet: Ironically enough, he's a Chaste Hero.
  • Combination Attack: Can perform the "Friendship Attack/True Friends Attack with Lazlo.
  • Cool Sword: Uses a sword for combat.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Subverted; while Lazlo can offer him a place in his army after defeating him, Snowe refuses. Until the last time you ask, when he has a Heel Realization.
  • Dirty Coward: "My arm!" Notably, his attempts to prove that he isn't a coward just makes things worse.
  • Elemental Powers: In Naval Battles, Snowe can use Rune Cannons of every element. For normal battles, he has better affinity with Water and Wind Runes.
  • Expy: Like Jowy before him, Snowe is a fair-haired young noble who ends up pitted against his best friend.
  • Fatal Flaw: He simply doesn't understand why he's seen as such a bad leader, and why nobody else can comprehend where he's coming from when he makes decisions.
  • Finish Him!: Lazlo is given the option of executing him several times during the story. However, doing it prevents you from getting the Golden Ending.
  • Get Ahold Of Yourself Man: On the receiving end of this. Deconstructed in that this treatment actually makes things worse in the long run, as he doesn't understand why he gets punched.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Grows to be real jealous of the hero.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: As "Child Snowe" in the beginning of Suikoden Tactics.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: How he feels about making a deal to protect Razril from Kooluk.
  • Making a Splash/An Ice Person: Starts with the Water Rune. In Tactics, water is also his default elemental affinity.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: "Ow, my arm!"
  • Never Live It Down: "My arm!" Also serves as an in-universe example, as the other Knights of Gaien scorn and mock him for this incident.
  • Odd Friendship: Lazlo's master and best friend, though striking a balance between those roles proves difficult.
  • The Quisling: Snowe trades vital information, the dissolution of Razril's chapter of the Knights of Gaien, and the use of their island as a hub for the Kooluk's ongoing invasion in exchange for Razril's safety. In exchange, the Kooluk give him a false title and duties, distracting him from how Razril suffers under their control... leading to his immense surprise when the citizens turn on him.
  • Power-Up Mount: In Tactics, Snowe can ride kangacorns and great owls.
  • Reality Ensues: Snowe has no experience as a leader, has poor control over his emotions, and doesn't handle himself well in conflict. He gets a lot of preferential treatment because he's Vincent's son. What happens to him is exactly what one would expect from such a poor leader.
  • The Resenter: At first, Snowe's confusion over Glen's death allows him to be manipulated by his controlling father. But later, he begins to be angry at Lazlo.
    • Suikoden Tactics reveals that he had been jealous of Lazlo ever since their childhood, as seen when Walter praises Lazlo's fighting skills.
  • The Scapegoat: Kooluk sets him up as one after he strikes a deal with them to save Razril, by giving him a special position that conveniently takes him away from Razril so that he doesn't see its decline firsthand.
  • Upper-Class Twit: Snowe is a decent fighter, but is weaker than Lazlo and lacks leadership skills. Nonetheless, he is promoted because of his father's influence.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Towards his own father and Commander Glen.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He really does want to serve and protect Razril, even if it means making a deal with the Kooluk Empire so they don't have to go to war. When these efforts aren't appreciated and he's driven out of the harbor, he snaps and decides to take a cue from Lazlo, turning to piracy.

The Four Knights

    In General 
  • Combination Attack: Together, the four knights can perform the "Knight Attack", which is Awesome, but Impractical in this game, as it requires that all of them be in the same party.
    • This unite move returns in Tactics as "Old Knight Attack".
    • In Tactics, Keneth also can perform the "New Knight Attack" with Katarina.
  • Cool Sword: Their preferred weapon. Jewel wields the Shimmering Sword, Keneth the 7-Star Sword, Paula has the Elven Sword, and Tal has the Juvenile Yellowtail.
  • Elemental Powers: In Naval Battles, they can use Rune Cannons of every element. In normal battles, they have better affinity with their starting rune attached, which is their innate elements in Tactics.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine (Jewel), Choleric (Keneth), Melancholic (Paula), Phlegmatic (Tal)
  • Power-Up Mount: In Tactics, they can ride kangacorns and great owls.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Lazlo. Two of them will accompany him when he was exiled from Gaien by Katarina.

    Paula 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/suikoden4_paula_4.png
Tenman Star
Voiced by: Hitomi Hirose (JP) and Michelle Ruff (EN)

A studious and quiet young woman who's been close friends with Lazlo since late childhood and was originally a member of the Knights of Gaien. She's also a native from Na-Nal Island, but spent most of her life in exile with her mother. Paula is the Tenman Star, also known as the Star of Abundance, of the 108 Stars of Destiny.


  • Action Girl: More magical than Jewel, but she doesn't shy away from combat.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Paula is the knight who wolds a Wind Rune and dresses in green. Wind Is Green in Suikoden.
  • Blow You Away: Paula starts with a Wind Rune attached.
  • Color-Coded Wizardry: Wears green clothes and has a Wind Rune equipped.
  • Emotionless Girl: She speaks in a dispassionate manner. Even if she's seeing Lazlo off before his exile, she only takes his hand, and logically states "I believe in your innocence."
  • The Exile: She was banished from the Hidden Elf Village for her mother's crimes.
  • Generation Xerox: Resembles her mother so closely that the elves of Na-Nal were immediately able to recognize her as Romina's daughter, and bar her from their village because she now shared her mother's crimes. The exact nature of those crimes are never specified, but given the nature of the Na-Nal elves, they probably amounted to nothing more than "not being a Jerkass to the humans."
  • Magic Knight: Her magical skills rival that of the starting wizards, although what she lacks in magical affinity is made up for with her sword arm.
  • Pointy Ears: It's the only way anyone could tell she is an elf.

Commanders

    Glen Cott 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/suikoden4_glencott_8.png
Voiced by: Hikaru Hanada (JP) and Michael McConnohie (EN)

The Commander of the Gaien Knights.


  • BFS: Uses a big sword for combat.
  • Blackmail: After Gaien scaled back their naval funding and left Razril to fend for itself, Vincent Vingerhut took advantage of this to start blackmailing the knights — either do as he asked, or he'd withdraw his financial support. Glen resents this arrangement, but can't bring himself to act against Vincent's wishes.
  • Dual Boss: In the very first battle of the game, a Hopeless Boss Fight, Glen is fought alongside his daughter, Katarina.
  • Duel Boss: The first duel in the game is against him. Later, Lazlo fights him again (as a memory within the Rune of Punishment) in a normal battle.
  • Fate Worse than Death: His soul get stuck within the Rune of Punishment, until being freed by Lazlo.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Done to Snowe, after he leaves his crew at Brandeau's mercy and escapes on his own.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: By freeing Glen's soul, Lazlo unlocks "Overlasting Mercy", the only spell of the Rune of Punishment that don't harm him in any way.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: While he had no choice but to comply with Vincent Vingerhut's string-pulling to appoint his inexperienced son in positions above what he was ready for, Glen could have treated Snowe better for his failures; whenever Snowe screws up, Glen punches him and yells at him without properly disciplining him while Lazlo receives considerable praise, contributing to Snowe's confusion and resentment of Lazlo.
  • Plotline Death: Glen makes a Heroic Sacrifice by using the Rune of Punishment to wipe out most of the forces attacking Razril, trading his life for that power.
  • Stern Teacher: In his capacity as Commander of the Gaien Marine Knights.

    Katarina 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/suikoden4_katarina_1_1.png
Tenjyu Star
Voiced by: Nao Takamori (JP)

Katarina Cott is the Vice-Commander of the Gaien Knights and a former pupil of Konrad. She is also the daughter of the Commander Glen Cott. Katarina is the Tenjyu Star, also known as the Star of Longevity, of the 108 Stars of Destiny.


  • Action Girl: She is a sorceress, not a fighter. But she does not shy away from battle, and when Ramada attacks Razril, she grabs her staff and charges into the fray.
  • Combination Attack: She can perform the "Sorcerer Attack" with Konrad.
    • In Tactics, she has the "Flame Array Attack" (with Jeane), the "New Knight Attack" (with Keneth), and the "Scorched Earth Attack" (with Pablo).
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: When she finally finds out that the hero did not kill her father.
  • Dual Boss: In the beginning of the game, she and Commander Glen fight Lazlo and Snowe as a team.
  • Elemental Powers: In Naval Battles, Katarina can use Rune Cannons of every element.
    • She also comes with a Water Rune and a Lightning Rune attached. During her training battle with Lazlo and Snowe, Katarina's staff has an Earth Rune piece embedded.
    • In Tactics, she comes with a Fire Rune and a Lightning Rune.
  • Flash Step: She can teleport to attack.
  • Frontline General: She's Vice-Commander, but doesn't hesitate to fight on the cannons, or on the front lines. In Tactics, she's Commander, and does the same thing.
  • Lady of Black Magic: As a Magic Knight, a poised sorceress who can deal damage with runes.
  • Lady of War: Her long robes and Flash Step lend her poise to this trope.
  • Lawful Stupid: Though she had a good working relationship with Lazlo, she automatically believed that Lazlo killed Glen despite the evidence resting on an extremely suspicious testimony by Snowe, with whom she has a poor working relationship with. Even when confronted with Snowe's lack of leadership capabilities and being horribly tortured and later being saved by Lazlo's crew, she remains staunchly believing in his guilt. It's only after she sees the Rune of Punishment that she finally believes in Lazlo and joins him. But how this trope really sticks is her Confessional after joining the 108 Stars of Destiny. She reveals that she never believed Lazlo murdered Glen but that she was so adamant about blaming somebody that she was willing to delude herself into believing in his guilt when she knew he didn't do it.
  • Luke, You Are My Father: She's Glen's daughter, but didn't work up the courage to tell him before his death.
  • Magic Knight: Physically the strongest of all mages.
  • Magic Staff: She wields the Kal E Kaganara.
  • Number Two: She's Glen's Vice-Commander and a talented spellcaster.
  • Playing with Fire: She has maximum affinity for fire magic, tied with her teacher Konrad. This is also her innate element in the sequel.
  • Saying Too Much: She mentions the homing birds used as means of communication between the islands to Ramada, a stranger. This is Lampshaded by Glen.
  • Squishy Wizard: Katarina is a specialist in magic but lacks physical strength and resistance. That said, she still the psychically strongest mage character.

  • Side Quest: In Tactics, he has one concerning his shop rivalry with the mysterious X & Co. Completing his quest allows Kyril to recruit the Four Mercenaries.

    Keen: Would you secretly inform me about anyone on board this ship who you think is causing problems?
    Frederica: I don't know and I have no interest.
    Keen: Then, would you tell me what you think of Lazlo?
    Frederica: Oh... well... If he knows more about Cray, I wish he'd tell me without hiding it...
