Sairoh is the Chikou Star in Suikoden V.


A retired merchant, Sairoh was known, in his prime, to be an extremely powerful and skilled merchant who sold arms to both sides of a conflict and even hired out mercenaries. He retired many years ago. Many people thought it was because the rumors were getting to him, but many speculate that is has to do with Sairoh's son and daughter-in-law dying, and being the only person left to raise their child, Shinro. Although retired, Sairoh kept his eyes on the trade business. One time, he noticed the price of salt increasing rapidly. Since salt is a necessity of life, that would create a serious concern among the people. He asked the Prince, who was in the shop at the time, what he would do at a time like this. The Prince responds by selling salt to bring the price down. Impressed at the royal's business savvy, Sairoh decides on one last business hurrah. Sairoh helps supply the Prince's army during the war, and retires soon after the battle ends. He spends the rest of his days drinking with a fellow retiree, Raja, and checking up on Shinro's business.

Suikoden V


When Salt goes up in price (check prices and/or rumors), talk to Sairoh in Raftfleet and he will ask what you will do to take care of the salt price problem. Sell 6 Salts to a trade shop (Preferably Dwarf Cave) immediately and talk to him again. To get Salt, buy it (earlier) in trade shops.

Oboro Investigations

1: You wouldn´t know it to look at him today, but Sairoh was once a great merchant. A legend, almost. He retired quite a while ago, but he decided to open up shop again for your sake, Your Highness.

2: Back in his prime, the scope of his business stretched all across Falena, and even beyond. You can see why his grandson Shinro would want to be just like him.

3: There were rumors long ago that he sold arms to both sides in times of war, or even hired out mercenaries. It´s even been said that the reason he retired is because the rumors got to be too much for him. Well, that´s all history now.

Suggestion Box Letters

  • The Beavers

During my days as a merchant, I conducted business with Beaver Lodge. Back then, Fuwalafuwalu's father was leader. What a fond memory.

  • The Bath

The bath is one of the few pleasures we old folks can really enjoy. This bath is wonderful. Your Highness has our thanks for building it.
