Gavaya is the Chibi Star in Suikoden V.



Gavaya is a fighter from New Armes Kingdom and he travels from country to country looking for a woman who will marry him.





Before the Sun Rune War, Gavaya tried to enter the Sacred Games Tournament, wanting to marry Lymsleia, but because of the fact he comes from Armes, he was refused entry.

On the Sun Rune War, Gavaya was in Raftfleet looking for a woman and asked them to marry him. Freyjadour Falenas with three beautiful women in his party met him and Gavaya joined in Freyjadour's Loyalist Army right away.

He stayed at the Loyalist Army's headquarter, the Ceras Lake Castle, where he asked every female members to marry him but he is unlucky to find one. It also cause a little problem on some members, like Mathias who was complaining when Gavaya tried to hit Isabel. As a member of the Loyalist Army, he do his job and helped Freyjadour on his battle against the Godwins. After the war, he went to the Island Nations Federation in search for a wife, failing to understand that the goal of courtship is tenure, not high turnover.

Gavaya can lead a four-star cavalry unit and adds one use of the Charge ability.

  1. Gavaya is a fighter from Armes. But he apparently doesn´t care at all about his homeland anymore. He travels from country to country now, looking for somebody to marry.
  2. Looks aside, Gavaya´s a gentleman. He´d never dream of hurting a woman in any way. Not even in a tournament -- if he winds up facing a female competitor, he just withdraws.
  3. Looks like he knows Hazuki and Nikea from various tournament circuits. I overheard he and Nikea moaning the other day about not getting into the Sacred Games.

  • I've Got Dibs

I hear you're the one that brought Hazuki here! Good job, knave! Just remember, don't get between us! She's gonna be all mine!

  • The Dragon Cavalry

Damn those cavalry guys! All the ladies faint and swoon over 'em! There's more to a man than just a pretty face! Ahh, but why am I bothering to tell a mere knave this?!

  • The Redheaded Lady
All I said to her was 'Wow, your armor is so cool. It's making me hot!' And then, just like that, that guy glued to her hip started waving his sword! Do something about him, knave!
