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

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.


Nanami was a nice and happy person and sometimes being tomboyish. She was very caring and straightfoward to her brother, Riou as well as their childhood friend Jowy. 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.

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 knight but she was heavily injured from their arrow shots causes 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 get sick making her angry to him.


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.
