Nanami is the Tenjyu Star (Star of Longevity) in Suikoden II. Nanami is the step-sister of Riou and adopted daughter of Genkaku.



Nanami is a young girl with short brown hair and wears a pink headband. She wears a pink and white Chinese qipao with yellow short sleeves with pink and white folded sleeves, green baggy pants and Chinese toe shoes. She also wears a pale green scarf with green lines that is tied on her waist.


Nanami was a nice and happy person and sometimes being tomboyish as mentioned by one of the guards in Muse City calling her a "frog faced tomboy" prior in going to Sindar Ruins with Alex. She is also a person that always thought herself is a person that is very attractive. She was very caring and straightfoward to her brother, Riou as well as their childhood friend Jowy. However, as game move along,she is shown to be a person that is quite naive where during the conflicts of the war, she wants the two to stop fighting but both continues to fight each other due to their destiny with their true runes attached on their right hand. She has shown keep asking Riou to abandoned his destiny of leading Dunan Liberation Army to achieve peace in Dunan by telling him to run away from his fight. During in Tinto, if the player listens to Nanami advice of running away from Riou's fight, Riou and Nanami will run away and when they arrive at Crom Village, Shu and some members will come to search for Riou and Shu will tell Riou and Nanami that because Riou running away, Ridley ended up being killed by Neclord's army because Ridley wanted to search for Riou and Nanami will kept telling Riou that she promised Genkaku that she will take care of him and she does not want to see Riou and Jowy fighting together but her naiveness has hurt Riou more. She kept saying sorry and telling Riou that he can make his own decision.Player can choose either to keep fighting or leave with Nanami to abandoned Riou fight

In the game, it is shown that Nanami will keep forcing herself into the party and saying dialogues that show her characteristics such as naiveness, gaining attention and others.

During the siege on Rockaxe, she is shown to be protective to both Riou and Jowy even they have conflicts with each other as she wields her three-piece rod to confront Gorudo and his knights but she was heavily injured from their arrow shots and this causes the both of them to get angry to them and to kill Gorudo.

In Genso Suikogaiden Vol. 1, Nanami also shows that she's a horrible cook as seen when she prepares her stew to the protagonist Nash Latkje but the latter ends up getting sick making her angry to him.


As a young girl she mainly played with her brother and Jowy, and really nobody else, so she became an outcast along with the other two. She is an adept user of the three-piece-rod and her agility in battle is rarely bested. Following Genkaku's death, she tried hard to re-establish his dojo, but this did not work, which resulted in Riou's decision to join the military.

Suikoden IIEdit

Upon Riou's return, she was imprisoned along with him, but escaped and joined Viktor's Mercenaries. Since then, she was always by Riou's side as his protector, but after Riou accepted his role as the leader of the Dunan Army, she began to wonder why her brother must be the leader.

Following that point, she tried to convince Riou to quit fighting and run away many times, but Riou kept on fighting. Eventually, she decided to simply let Riou fight out his war, but secretly she was hurt by the fact that her brother had to fight against their childhood friend, Jowy Atreides. During the siege on Rockaxe, Nanami was heavily injured by an arrow shot from Gorudo's Knights.She either dies from the wound or she is thought to have died, but this is just a ploy to get away from the war. She was tired of having to watch her brother suffer and she didn't want to fight against Jowy. Thus, she stayed in Kyaro until the end of the war. After the war, she travels with Riou and Jowy.
