Chris Lightfellow

"I have not lived long enough to become a myth."

Chris is the Tenbi Star in Suikoden III.



Chris Lightfellow is the only child of Wyatt and Anna Lightfellow. When she was a little girl, her mother suffered from grief and died after knowing that her husband was killed in battle. After her parents' death, Louis's father looked after her and she grew into a bright, beautiful and strong woman. After Pelize and Galahad died in battle, she became the acting captain of the Zexen Knights. The people of Zexen acknowledge her as their hero and she is known as the Silvermaiden or White Knight.

In Grasslands, she is known as the Silver-haired Demon or The Goddess of Death. Her skill with a blade is quite remarkable, even catching the eye of the demonic warrior, Yuber, who remarked he wanted to test her exquisite prowess in battle for himself.


Chris is a kind woman and prefers to give gratitude towards the knights who passed away during an encounter, rather than celebrating her victory in any battle.




As a child, at the age of 5 years old, she became an orphan, believing her father went missing but as the time goes by, she started to understand that her father passed away in the war of the Grasslands, this brought grief to her mother and passed away.

At the age of 13 years old, she enrolled at the Zexen Service Academy. Swearing not to sully her father's memory and family name, she pushed herselt to the limit and as a result, she graduated ahead of her class at the age of 16.

After she graduated, she became a secondary knight and went to serve at the side of the knight Captain, Galahad.

During the year 474 of the Sun Calendar, a war started between the Zexen Confederacy and the Grasslands. Captain Galahad and Pelize were killed in battle. Chris lead the knights to victory. As a result she became the acting Captain of the Zexen Knights, famous and was known as the Silver-Maiden.

After the Zexen Federation's victory celebration against the Grasslands, the council called back and sent her along with Salome, Borus, Roland to negotiate a truce. Due to sudden death of Chief Zephon of the Lizard Clan of Grassland, the truce was unsuccessful and they were attacked by the Grasslands Army, assuming they were the killers.

Desperate and unable to help Mirriam and Lanchet troops which was surrounded by Grasslands Army. Chris decided to follow Salome's plan, and went to Karaya Village to set it on fire. While in Karaya Village, Chris was attacked by a Karayan named Lulu, who was the best friend of Hugo. Without thinking, and realizing what was going on, Chris killed Lulu. This causes a riffle between her and Hugo.

Sparing Hugo and Sgt. Joe lives, Chris left the village mentally exhausted causing her to pass out. Chris was given time to rest and Percival took the chance to invite Chris to Iksay Village., for some R & R. There she meets Nash Clovis, were he told the village that it would be attacked by the Grasslands Army very soon.

To everyone's dismay, they were too late, and the Karaya Clan Chief, Lucia had already made an attack on the village. Before the skirmish ends, Nash rescues Chris, as they jump off a cliff, to fall into a neighboring creek.

On the river side, Nash talks of a place called Budehuc Castle, which is nearby, where they can rest, and address the current situation. Nash knows about the Flame Champion, and Wyatt Lightfellow. Intrigued of the tale, Chris wanted to see her father, and decided to find him. Her plans come to a halt, as she has a run in with Hugo, and the two duel.

Chris wins the fight, but Hugo's burning passion continues to erupt, as he refuses to lose. Thomas, the master of the castle, disrupts their spar, and stops their battle. Afterwards, Chris decides to explore the Grassland with Nash. When she ventures through Kuput Forest, she meets Yuiri and Yumi. The two brought Chris and Nash to their village, the Alma Kinan Village, where Chris meets a spry, Yun. Due to the Alma Kinan customs, Yun is to be sacrificed through a practice called "Ritual of Soul-Sending".

During the Ritual of Soul-Sending, Yun chooses Chris to be the last person she ever talks to. During their conversation, Yun learns that Chris still misses and loves her father. Yun, being a seer, also told her that Wyatt's life, was coming to an end soon. Hearing this, Chris becomes determined find a solution to save her father, no matter what any prediction says.

After the ritual, Chris decided to help Yuri and Yumi with their task. Afterwards, Chris and her party journey off to the Chisha Clan Village, where they successfully defend the village. Chris's time in Chisha is spent short, when some of her Grasslander foes come to the village as well. Chris continues her journey, alongside Nash to find her father.

Role in the GameEdit

Joins automatically in Chris Chapter 1.

Chris is not a powerful magic user. She may (or may not) learn one level 4 spell when at a very high level, such as level 60. However, she boasts a high defence with her armor. Chris gets the Unique Skills: Heavy Damage and Parry, which can both reach rank A. She does extremely well with the Accuracy, Damage, and Armor melee skills. Magic skill wise, she does best with Water Runes and surprisingly Sword of Magic Runes, where she has a B+ and A respectively for them. Her heavy equipment, powerful weapon, and high stats makes Chris a potent melee fighter.

Chris doesn't get any real open Rune slots to play with. Both slots pretty much are taken up by one of the True Runes and her Unique Phoenix Rune. Chris' best magic options come from Water and Magic Sword, so they are her best magical options, otherwise, stick to Killer Runes and Double Strike Runes.

Her looks are powerful weapon but her acting is horrible. Still, she attracts an audience.

Captain of the Zexen Knights. She's bright, beautiful and strong. I adore her...

Since she was a child, she has been known for her swordsmanship, but she wasn't good at the lessons that girls usually take.

As a student, she was in the chapel choir. But she was utterly tone deaf! She quit soon after. It's a memory she would rather forget.

She had a fight with Lilly at the Zexen Foundation Day Ball. They hurled wine, slapped each other and threw tables. After all that, they became friends! Frightening, huh?

Hugo, I'm sure you must have many worries, but please don't suffer alone. Remember that we are always with you.

Hugo, The scenery at the lake is so beautiful that it makes us forget there is a war going on. Why don't you take a walk when you're tired?

I reckon I'm just a ham, not an actor. Could you use somebody else in the play instead of me?

I saw you stroking a kitten. Is that some kind of training?

Geddoe, I'm sure you must have many worries, but please don't suffer alone. Remember that we are always with you.

Geddoe, The scenery at the lake is so beautiful that it makes us forget there is a war going on. Why don't you take a walk when you're tired?

Geddoe, Borus is interested in the skill of your mercenary force. He said he wanted training. Could you teach him?
