- "This must be Kirinji. A remarkable piece of work."
- —Cleo, Suikoden
During the Toran Liberation War, the Liberation Army's leader, Tir McDohl went on a covert mission with five others to steal Kirinji in an attempt to blackmail Lepant in order to get him to join the Liberation Army. Initially, the operation was unsuccessful, but Lepant later joined when his wife, Eileen, was rescued from Kraze's troops by the Liberation Army.
