Nash Latkje is the main character of both volumes of Genso Suikogaiden as the titular "Swordsman of Harmonia". He appears as the Tensoku Star in Suikoden III, as well. He is 22 during Suikogaiden and 37 in Suikoden III. He has also gone by the name Nash Clovis.
Nash is the only son of the powerful and well-known Latkje family of Harmonia. As a first class citizen, he grew up with everything he needed, including the love of his parents and his sister, Julie, alongside his aunt, Lena Suphina, who is only three years older than him. His family's strict views on education resulted in Nash being sent to the Howling Voice Guild for training under Master Sauro.
After enduring two years of intensive training, he enters the Temple Guards and masters the use of his family heirloom - the Double Snake Sword, Grosser Fluss. His parents both die soon after from a mysterious illness, though Julie becomes engaged with Zaj Quilous, the adopted son of the Quilos family. Nash investigates his father's death, finding that he had been slowly poisoned by a squire-class gunner called "Zaj of the Black Moon". On the eve of Julie's wedding, Nash confronts Zaj, who admits to poisoning Nash's father to take over the Latkje household. Nash is forced to kill him and flees the Crystal Valley. The Latkje family falls from grace and Julie is taken under the protection of a Harmonian high priest.
Nash joins the Harmonian Southern Frontier Defense Force. In an investigation in Jowston concerning the True Runes, he encounters Sierra Mikain, who searches for Neclord and her former companion, Rean. He winds up aiding her in a fight against Rean, though she leaves him afterwards to pursue Neclord. While helping Teresa Wisemail of Greenhill fight against the Highland Kingdom, Nash discovers that Zaj is still alive and intends to kill him. He returns to the Crystal Valley to duel Zaj; after Nash wins, he disappears.
After 15 years, as Nash Clovis, he resurfaces in the Grasslands and accompanies Chris at the request of Salome as she searches for her estranged father. In truth, he is an agent of Harmonia, likely working for Sasarai, investigating the Fire Bringer, specifically Chris' father, the bearer of the True Water Rune, and the Masked Bishop.

|Starting Equipment||Recommended Equipment|
Nash has no unite attacks.
Can play various roles well, since he's a spy. His acting is noteworthy.
Recently, Kenji made me exercise until midnight. I'm not young. Give me a break!
Tell Koroku not to pee on my socks.
Connie also tries to pee on my feet. Do my feet attract dogs?
Ruby is becoming attached. He held me in his arms and flew off. Before I noticed. I was in his nest. I shudder at the memory...
He's a shady guy. He had some kind of behind-the-scenes role during the Dunan Unification War.
It's possible he's hiding something about himself, but I don't know what or why.
Lately, he has been seen with a Nasel bird on his shoulder. He called it "Dominguez Junior." What a funny name!
Before coming here, he lived with his sister and a distant relative. There must be a reason....
- Nash appears in disguise as a Non-player Character in Suikoden II. He was the Highland Soldier guarding the food storage of the Highland Camp where Riou and Jowy infiltrate to check their food supply for the besiege of Muse. Check out the following file Nash appear in Suikoden II and Nash in Suikogaiden Vol.1.
- Sometime within the next fifteen years, Nash marries, or he claims to have in Suikoden III. Although he frequently mentions his "missus", whom he considers a handful, she is never seen or mentioned by name. Speculation and hints from Nadir's play and Arthur's newspaper in Suikoden III suggest it may be Sierra Mikain.
