Genshu is the Chiei Star in Suikoden II.

Suikoden II

Dunan Unification War

Genshu was once a sword-for-hire, living as an assassin. However, his brother, who hoped Genshu would quit his dishonorable line of work, disguised himself as Genshu's target. Genshu failed to recognize him and killed him. Realizing that he killed his own brother, he quit his profession and decided to take his swordsmanship seriously by honing his mind. He has an obsession with powerful swords, and is particularly obsessed with the Star Dragon Sword.

Post-Dunan Unification War

After the war, he returned to his life of wandering. His whereabouts are currently unknown.


Speak to Genshu at the Coronet docks with anyone's weapon sharped to level 14 or above. Must also have at least 101 stars.

Note: If Tessai does not have the Silver Hammer, recruit and bring Pesmerga in your party, as his sword is level 14 automatically. Genshu is one of the last Stars of Destiny required to get all 108 Stars.

From: Unknown
Position: Infantry

  • Secret: #2

"This guy would probably get along well with Shin. All he ever talks about is swords."

  • Secret: #3

"He used to be work for anyone who could pay him, but he got tired of that life...."

  • Secret: #4

"You should see that guy's eyes when he's near the Star Dragon Sword. He's not normal I tell you, I tell ya. It's almost like he worships it."

Suggestion Box Letters

  • Strike with your mind

To strike truly with your sword, you must strike truly with your mind. ~Genshu

Cook-Off Introduction

"They say his sword is so swift that the naked eye can't see it. He's come a long way to be here with us, It's Lord Genshu!!!"


  • Genshu's design is based around popular Ronin archetypes found in Japanese Media. His signature rune, the Swallow Rune, is based off the famous "Swallow Cut" move of Kojiro Sasaki, and his design and past as a reformed assassin who mistakenly murdered a loved one is reminiscent of Nobuhiro Watsuki's Kenshin Himura from the manga Rurouni Kenshin.
