Alec Wisemail is a character mentioned in Suikoden II.
Biography[edit | edit source]
The father of Teresa Wisemail, Alec ruled as the mayor of Greenhill, prior to his daughter's own term. At that time, Greenhill was a principality within the City-States of Jowston. A careful man, Alec took preparations to protect his family, even hiring the warrior Shin as a bodyguard for his daughter. His leadership saw the region of Greenhill through a difficult time, during which the principality fought skirmishes against the then-neighbouring tribe of the Karaya Clan.
The Karaya Clan proved to be such a problem to Alec's leadership that he schemed with Gorudo, leader of the Matilda Knights, to poison the Karaya Clan leader, Kianu, in an alleged meeting for a peace treaty. With Kianu gone, his young daughter Lucia would rise to power, an event which they thought would weaken the clan further due to her inexperience. This plan proved successful to an extent, the murder of Kianu enabled Greenhill and Matilda to grab a portion of Karaya's lands. However, Lucia would exceed expectations, becoming not only a powerful warrior but an intelligent and able leader of the Karaya Clan as well.
When the Highland Kingdom began to invade the eastern part of Muse principality in SY 460, a meeting was called amongst leaders of the City-States to determine what to do about the incoming threat. By this time, Alec had become ill to the point where he could not attend or even perform his duties as Mayor, and so he sent his daughter, Teresa, the Acting Mayor. Alec would not live long after this time, perishing before Highland invaded Greenhill a few months later.
Following his death, his daughter continued on as Acting Mayor, and became a popular leader in both Greenhill and the Dunan Republic (following the Dunan Unification War), as she was elected President of the Republic soon after the war's end.
