Genshu is the Chiei Star from Suikoden II.

Suikoden IIEdit

Dunan Unification War Edit

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 WarEdit

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


Speak to Genshu at Coronet docks with your weapon sharped to level 14 or above. Must also have at least 102 stars.

Suggestion Box LettersEdit

  • Strike with your mind

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

Cook-Off IntroductionEdit

"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!!!"

Trivia Edit

  • 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.
