Kanaan is a minor antagonist in Suikoden.
Kanaan served under Commander Kraze in the Imperial Army.
During a mission accompanying Tir McDohl to Rockland to collect taxes, Kanaan witnesses Ted using the Soul Eater to defeat a particularly troublesome monster while retrieving stolen tax money from the Mt. Seifu Bandits. Upon returning to Gregminster, Kanaan asked Ted to accompany him to the castle, Ted accepted, not knowing what it was about. After the events at the castle, Kanaan continued to serve the empire, being later seen working with Yuber before the final battle at Gregminster.
Three years after the war, Kanaan was arrested for fraud in Gregminster.
