ST Nalkul Portrait

"Truly great men don't give off an aura of being great!"

Nalkul is the Chitan Star in Suikoden IV and a playable character in Suikoden Tactics.



Nalkul was once a pickpocket along with Champo on Nay Island. He is the best cat in town.



During the Island Liberation War, while the two of them were out, they ran into Lazlo and Chiepoo. After Nalkul stole the Golden Seal from Lazlo, the two were found hiding behind the warehouse. Champo was admiring the seal because it was shiny and became upset when he found out that Nalkul was going to sell it. Soon after, they were approached by Lazlo and Chiepoo, who were looking for the seal. Nalkul first acted like he hadn't seen it, but when prompted by Lazlo to "Give it back", Nalkul tossed it to Champo, who became suddenly surprised at this and accidentally threw it up onto the window ledge of the warehouse. Then, one of the many mice that infest the warehouse knocked the seal into the warehouse.

After Chiepoo explained were, Nalkul along with Champo apologized and offered to retrieve the seal for them on the condition that they be allowed to join the Island Liberation Navy. After successfully retrieving the seal, Champo is seen asking Nalkul if it was alright that they didn't ask anyone else to come along, to Nalkul replied that everyone else had their own lives, and that they'd be the only ones that weren't missed. On the Dauntless, many people invited him to take a bath, but he wish people would stop inviting him to take a bath. After the war Champo, Nalkul and Noah all went into business together and became merchants.

At the Fall of Kooluk, while on a business trip in Merseto, he along with Champo and Noah encountered a group of bandit. Luckily, Kyril and his party happened to be in the area and came across them in time and together, the two groups wiped out the bandits. After the battle, Noah, Champo, and Nalkul decided to join Kyril on his quest to hunt down Rune Cannons. While he was with Kyril's group, he often gave food to Noah and is worried about Champo. After the battle with Kooluk ends he, Champo and Noah continue to run their business.

Nalkul has a Good Will with Champo and Chiepoo.

  • Keen: You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.

            Nalkul: Eh? Well, whatever... just do it!

  • Keen: Would you secretly inform me about anyone on board this ship who you think is causing problems?

            Nalkul: Problems? Well, that'd be... Champo. He's gotta work more... After all, he got a free chance to get on the Dauntless!

  • Keen: Then, would you tell me what you think of Lazlo?

            Nalkul: He's amazing, you know? He's on completely equal footing with Mr. Chiepoo...

  • Keen: Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.

            Nalkul: I'm... I'm really just not keen on that whole "bath" thing... I wish people would stop inviting me to take a bath!

  • Keen: Then, I shall pass judgement!

            Nalkul: Yeah! That's real pretty!! Heh! Does this mean I've become a better man after all this?

            Nalkul: ...!! Wh-What d'you do that for?!!!

Thanks for bringing us aboard! Now, it's our turn to work hard for you, Mr. Lazlo!

I apologize about the Golden Seal. I won't do anything like that again. I promise.

We're gonna be famous! I don't know how yet, but I'm planning on asking Mr. Chiepoo next chance I get!

Visit Merseto in Chapter 15 or beyond, and listen to the gossip of the "Old Man," which concerns an attack on some Nay-Kobold merchants at the port. Go to the port area, and a battle will begin. If you can defeat all their enemies, Champo, Nalkul and Noah will join you.
