BiographyEditFalena is the silent protagonist of Suikoden V. He is the son of Arshtat and Ferid and Lymsleia's older brother. He possesses a strong relationship with the members of his family, especially Lymsleia. As a male, he is unable to inherit the throne to the Queendom. The Prince is approximately 16 years old and eventually becomes the leader of the Loyalist Army attempting to reclaim the rule of the country after a coup d'état.
Falenan royal princes are not generally accorded much respect, as they cannot inherit the throne in a Queendom. As such, the Prince performs mostly ceremonial functions; due to his lack of duties, he is also free to explore and leave the capital. In the opening of Suikoden V, the Prince tours the ruined town of Lordlake as part of an investigation for Arshtat with his bodyguard Lyon, his aunt Sialeeds, and Sialeeds' bodyguard Georg Prime. While his father gives him a warm reception upon his return, his mother Arshtat behaves erratically — welcoming him initially, but turning cold and distant upon the reminder of Lordlake's treachery and is calmed only by Ferid.
At the Sacred Games, the Prince is the only one of the royals able to move about without attracting heavy suspicion; Ferid sends him, Sialeeds, Lyon, and Georg to investigate the gladiator Belcoot as well as Zegai, the Barows family's champion. These investigations raise the Prince's suspicion of the Godwins, as do a variety of other "convenient" events at the Games. The Prince and Sialeeds later accompany Lymsleia, who must receive the blessing of the (missing) Dawn Rune and be purified in the holy land of Lunas in preparation for her engagement.Before the engagement ceremony, the Queen confides to the Prince their plans concerning the Godwins and that they have no intention of letting Lord Godwin have his way with the country. Nevertheless, she fears things will become much more difficult for children; she hugs her son and tells him she's quite proud of him regardless, assassins, but are advised to flee by Georg Prime when he informs them that the Queen and Ferid have perished. The Prince, aware that Lymsleia will be used as a puppet queen, attempts to rescue his sister, but reluctantly leaves her behind after he is assured she is in good hands.
The Prince becomes a figurehead for an uprising against the Godwins, initially allying himself with the Barows family until it is discovered that they were the ones responsible for the theft of the Dawn Rune. Instead, after recruiting strategist Lucretia Merces, he sets out to personally lead the movement and becomes the eventual bearer of the Dawn Rune. The Prince recruits many of the various factions of Falena to go against the Godwins, notably the town of Lordlake to "make up" for Arshtat's mistake.
At the end of the game, if all 108 Stars of Destiny are not recruited, Lyon dies and the Prince becomes the new bearer of the Twilight Rune. If very few Stars of Destiny are recruited, the Prince then wanders off into the frozen mountains alone in despair. If all 108 Stars are recruited, Lyon is miraculously saved, and the Prince can choose between leaving with Lyon on a journey elsewhere with Georg, or staying in Falena and becoming the new commander of the Queen's Knights (if the player has been "nice" to Lymsleia).

Like the other Suikoden protagonists, the prince is well-balanced with excellent marks in all areas. You can either make him a strong physical fighter with the Double-Edged rune, Killer rune, or Fury rune or make him a good magic user with Rage rune, Mother Earth or Flowing rune. If you like a more balanced approach, you can try to combine one of the casting runes with some of the physical support runes.
CombatEditLyon and Miakis and the Dawn Rune permanently affixed to him in the middle of the game. The Dawn Rune starts off slow, gaining power through events in the game, but eventually becomes a very strong and versatile rune. His stats favor physical attack over magic. His magical ability, however, is also fairly balanced, leaving it up to the player to choose whether to have him perform well physically, magically, or evenly balanced.
