De Beers (デビアス卿) is a minor character in Suikoden V.
The Lord of Lelcar prior to the Falenan Civil War, De Beers was a non-committal sort and sided with whichever faction in the Senate appeared to have the momentum at the time. This policy saw Lelcar side with various factions over the years, from Godwin to Barows as well as Rovere. This caused the town to become fractured as the citizens began to take sides with each faction. Interestingly, De Beers incompetence as a leader ensured that Lelcar never disintegrated into violence, as the citizens were united by their disdain for him.
In 449, Lord De Beers was represented in the Sacred Games by the gladiator, Jinku. However, De Beers hopes of winning the tournament didn't last long, as Jinku was defeated in the first round by eventual finalist, Belcoot.
Later, during the Falenan Civil War, once the Loyalist Army's influence began to extend near Lelcar, De Beers fled to to the Godwin stronghold of Doraat, in fear of the advance of the Prince's army on Lelcar. Once Lelcar allied with the Prince, De Beers' stay in Doraat was cut short. With the Loyalist Army preparing to attack Doraat, De Beers quickly fled once again, this time to Stormfist. However, once it appeared that Stormfist would be under siege by the Loyalist forces, De Beers soon fled once more, first to the Hershville Naval Base and then across the sea in a ship. Where he fled to and whether he would ever return to Falena is unknown.
