Byakuren is the Chido Star in Suikoden V.



Byakuren is a female great white snake who lives in the Ceras Lake.


Byakuren, since she is a snake, has a long and slim body which shimmers in white and blue. At her tail, she has a blue pattern which looks like arrows and on her back she has a blue line which goes up to her head area and grows into another pattern. She has a pair of fins and whiskers on her back and a horn on her head.


Her personality is quite hard to read since she is a snake and therefore not able to speak human tongue or have normal expressions. However, she seems to carry some animosity against Flail for being another female beast.



During the Sun Rune War, Freyjadour Falenas lowered the water level in Ceras Lake and used the castle on the lake as the headquarters for his Loyalist Army. The people started polluting the water and Byakuren despises it, and as a result, she attacked Freyjadour and his party, but Byakuren was defeated. She became sad because the defeat meant that she will leave the lake and she needed to find another lake to live in. Genoh, an old tortoise who can understand her language, became the translator between Byakuren and Freyjadour. Freyjadour expressed his regret and he apologized for what they did. Byakuren accepted the apology and she decides to join Freyjadour's Loyalist Army.

As a member, she helped Freyjadour fight the Godwins and she stayed at the docks of the castle. After the war, the people left the castle and Byakuren became the guardian of Ceras Lake where she continues to watch over it, now at the bottom of the lake.

Role in the Game

After the coronation ceremony and your HQ is upgraded (combined scene), fight Byakuren on the bridge leaving HQ. After recruiting Genoh or Levi, fight Byakuren on the same bridge. Ask her to join. If you do not recruit Byakuren the first time, she comes back every 20 recruits. Make sure to have recruited Genoh or Levi before the last set of 20 recruits.

Because of the fact that Byakuren is a giant beast character, she has amazing HP and strength but, like with Genoh, her major downside is that she requires two slots in the party. In a normal scenario two characters are usually better than one giant snake.

Byakuren doesn't have any runes nor can she equip any. Also, her hits max out at two and her agility is pretty bad, so she can't make up for her missing equipment by hitting more often than other characters.

However, some of her skills are amazing. She gains a SS-rank at Stamina, Raging Lion, Ármor of Gods and her special skill, Freeze. This allows her to still be kind of useful.

Byakuren might be able to tank a good chunk of damage while being able to hold her own in fights. Most of the time she still isn't as good as two normal characters in your party.

Byakuren can't be used as a military unit.

  1. Byakuren is a giant white serpent from Ceras Lake. At first, she thought we were intruders and wanted to chase us out. Now she thinks of us as her friends.
  2. She can´t understand our speech, but it seems she´s as smart as we are, regardless. She often talks with Genoh.
  3. She seems confident in her looks, but she sees Flail and Miroon as rivals. I guess I sort of understand about Flail, but why Miroon, I wonder...
