SIV Axel Portrait

"I've talked to all sorts of people, and maybe elves aren't so bad. It's just a little thought I had. Just a little one."

Axel is the Tenmou Star of Suikoden IV. He also appears as a playable character in Suikoden Tactics.



Axel is the son of the chief of Na-Nal. Axel was a kind person who cares about the well being of Na-Nal people.



Axel got involved with Lazlo and Lino En Kuldes during the Island Liberation War. He initially rejected Lazlo's plea to join him in his quest to liberate the islands because Na-Nal was already occupied by the Kooluk, and Axel and his father seemed to be satisfied with it, even to the point of branding Lazlo and Lino "rude". Just to pacify Lazlo, he sent him to the Great Elven Tree to find some Elven Medicine. Soon after he obtained the medicine, Axel gave it to the Kooluk soldiers. Whilst Lazlo and his friends were making their way back from the Great Elven Tree, they were imprisoned by the elven chief. They were only given a cryptic message: "You shall see the tragedy first-hand".

The highly-sought Elven Medicine turned out to be poison. Axel did not know that this was a ploy by Selma's father to drive the Kooluk off the island, and he was extremely horrified by their behaviour. He and his father finally accepted Lazlo's plea and joined the Island Liberation Navy. After the war, he became the Chief of Na-Nal.

At the Fall of Kooluk, he joined Kyril on his way to Caleron at the request of King Lino En Kuldes. While he was with Kyril's group, he and Mitsuba have a duel and eventually he lost and Mitsuba take his 1000 Potch. He became close with Selma and they planning to go back to Na-Nal Island and start a serious dicussion between humans and elves after the fighting with Kooluk ends.

Axel can participate in the Giant Sword B Attack.

Axel has a Good Will with Izak, Lazlo and Selma.

  • Keen: You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.

            Axel: What the heck is that supposed to mean? Ah, who cares?! Bring it on!

  • Keen: Would you secretly inform me about anyone on board this ship who you think is causing problems?

            Axel: That darn elf! Actually, it's no big deal. I-I don't think there's anyone in particular that I can't handle.

  • Keen: Then, would you tell me what you think of Lazlo?

            Axel: I don't know, he seems a little reserved. He could be more of a "take charge" kind of person.

  • Keen: Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.

            Axel: Well... The other day, I was half asleep... and I grabbed onto Chiepoo, thinking he was the blanket... I never thought he'd feel so good... But now, I feel so awful thinking about it!

  • Keen: Then, I shall pass judgement!

            Axel: Well, that's not surprising!

            Axel: Wh-Why?!!

Well, since I'm working under you now, I just wanted to post a greeting. I look forward to working with you.

Since coming on board, I've talked to all sorts of people, and maybe elves aren't so bad. It's just a little thought I had. Just a little one.

In Na-Nal, a person's role in the village is determined by the mark on their foreheads!

For example, a blue triangle pointed upwards like mine means...
Um... sorry. I'll ask my father next time.

Mizuki and Akaghi rejoin you at the end of Chapter 11 with seven Obelian recruits in tow, Axel among them.

Axel is very slow. His best ability is his strength. Early on, he is one of the few characters that can equip heavy armor, so he could be useful as a front-line attacker.

Sorry, but I'm in a wreck.

Sorry, this is how it ends...

This is how it happened...
