North Window Village is a location in Suikoden II. It is located to the northwest of South Window City, on the southwest side of Dunan Lake. During the Dunan Unification War it becomes the HQ of the New State Army and renamed Dunan Castle.
History & LoreEdit
North Window was once a bustling town with fortifications that made it virtually impenetrable to enemy attacks. It once played a part when the Scarlet Moon Empire invaded and was used to launch a counter strike.
Once known as the sister town of South Window City, North Window was transformed into a ghost town over night following Neclord’s attack on the village. Viktor, who was born and raised there, was away from the village at the time of the attack and returned to find his family and friends murdered.
In 460, it was discovered that citizens of South Window were disappearing near by the village. Granmeyer dispatched a reconnaissance party which included Riou, Freed Y., and Viktor to scout North Window. The party was reacquainted with Neclord, who was amassing an army out of the remains of his past victims. Even with the newly-acquired Star Dragon Sword and the assistance of vampire slayer, Kahn Marley, Neclord retreated and instead called upon one of his minions to attack the group.
Having nowhere else to go, refugees fled to North Window in an attempt to avoid the carnage. Eventually Riou and the group decided to fight back and take up residence in the castle, renaming it Dunan Castle.
After recruiting the former student of Mathiu Silverberg, Shu in Radat Town, Riou and his make shift forces prepared for the first official battle of the New State Army defending from Dunan Castle. During the battle South Window soldiers, who were being forced to fight alongside Solon Jhee's Unit, turned against him after seeing Riou and select number of able soldiers attack Solon Jhee directly. With the tide of the battle turning against them, Solon Jhee retreated as to avoid heavy losses.
- The player has the opportunity to name the Castle fortress once it becomes a Headquarters. Viktor recommends against naming it North Window Castle, but there is no effect on gameplay, regardless.
