Oboro is the Chiyu Star in Suikoden V.


Game Edit

Oboro is a former member of Nether Gate. He was in the intelligence division, so he had a lot of opportunities to get to know the outside world. When Nether Gate was disbanded eight years ago before the Sun Rune War, Oboro, with fellow former members Shigure and Sagiri, started a detective agency. Fuyo, their very first customer, came back to help them to organize the agency after her investigation was over. Oboro treats Shigure, Sagiri, and Fuyo as family.

Their agency is actually a ship that sails through the Feitas River to reach any place in the Queendom of Falena. They often dock in Raftfleet.

Story Edit

Game Edit

During the Sun Rune War, while Oboro and his company were in Rainwall, they met Freyjadour Falenas, who asked to investigate Salum Barows' action during the Lordlake uprising. Oboro succeeded in the investigation and discovered the secret of Salum Barows by investigating Norden, who eventually cooperated with them.

Oboro joined the Loyalist Army after Freyjadour asked him to join. He opened an agency in the Loyalist Army's headequarters, Ceras Lake Castle. Later, Oboro helped to recruit his rival Raven at the castle.

After the war, he leaves the agency to Fuyo and departs, apparently for Nagarea, to "settle things once and for all."

Role in the GameEdit

There are two ways to recruit Oboro:

  1. After initially hiring Oboro in Rainwall, go to the inn and talk to the drunk at the bar. Upon leaving the inn, accompany Shigure and Sagiri for Norden's investigation. When Oboro speaks about employing mice, ask "That man went inside the house", and when talking to Norden with Oboro in the Tavern, say "We need to talk to you about something". After the relocation of Raftfleet, talk to Oboro and ask him to join in his office in Raftfleet.
  2. If you did not successfully perform the Norden investigation, you may have to ask him to join up to five times as storyline progresses: after Raftfleet; after HQ; after Lelcar; after Sable; and after Beaver Lodge. If you wait until after the Queen's Campaign, his ship will be gone from Raftfleet forever.

Oboro conducts investigations of your characters.

Oboro grants the unit he accompanies the Rumors ability.

  1. Oboro is an excellent detective. Swift investigations, privacy guaranteed, nothing but the straight facts. His hobby is making business cards. Is that good enough? This is kind of embarrasing...
  2. You know my assistant, Mr.Mouse? Well, actually, there´s more than one of them! Eh? How´d I train them? Well, there are some secrets I'm sworn to protect...
  3. I grew up in Nether Gate. The intelligence division, specifically, so I had a lot of opportunities to get to know the outside world. It gave me a lot to think about...
