Flame Champion

"Is it hard to have such devoted people imposing their ancient dreams and ideals on me... I want the decision to act as I wish, to live or to die... But it doesn't do me any good to complain. I must think positively."

The Flame Champion's real name is still unknown.
He appears in Suikoden III.

ProfileEdit

BackgroundEdit

He was the legendary hero of the Grasslands, and the leader of the original Fire Bringer, who fought to liberate his homeland from Harmonian oppression. This eventually led to the First Fire Bringer War. He is also the late husband of Sana and the former bearer of the True Fire Rune.

In the beginning it was just him and a handful of men that began the guerrilla warfare, attacking Harmonian convoys. As time passed more and more joined the cause.

At some point he and his men infiltrated the One Temple in Harmonia's capital, Crystal Valley, and stole the True Fire Rune.

Armed with a powerful rune and an ever increasing size in troops the Fire Bringer came to be. Many clans within in the Grasslands took up arms for him, Duck Clan being the first, and war was declared.

The war took its toll eventually with many Grasslanders being captured and taken to Harmonia, most likely to be slaves to the higher classes. The Flame Champion offered himself in return for 5000 Grasslanders to be freed and returned to their homeland. Momentum began to slow for the Fire Bringer after losing their leader and Harmonia eventually recaptured most of their lost territory.

It was years later a daring rescue from remnants of the Fire Bringer saw the Flame Champion rise again. Reignited by the return of their leader the Grasslanders took up arms once more and the First Fire Bringer War began.

The military might of the Harmonians struggled to overcome the Grasslanders initially and this eventually led them to call upon much of their military strength to finally quash the insurrection. During what seemed would be the last stand for the Grasslanders, the Flame Champion's True Fire Rune lost control which resulted in a large catastrophic explosion in the midst of the battlefield incinerating many on either side.

Following this, Harmonia offered a 50 year truce to the Grasslands which was accepted after so much loss of life.

The immense explosion from the True Fire Rune had drained the Flame Champion and eventually he returned to his love, Sana to live out his life with her. He gave up the True Fire Rune to live as a mortal with her and died years later.

TriviaEdit

  • Unlike the rest of the unnamed heroes of the series (Tir, Riou, Lazlo, and Freyjadour) the Flame Champion has never been given an official name in either the source materials, Word of God, or in a novel/manga adaption.
  • With Flame Champion not given an official name, some fans have given him names that relate to the fire, such as Blaze and Ash.
