Role in the Game[edit | edit source]

Joins automatically in Geddoe Chapter 1.

Geddoe is a strong mix of mage and melee fighter. His unique skills are Parry, Freeze and Magic Repel. These skills allow him to deflect and counter damage, make enemies lose turns, and even reflect magic back at them, so he's very defensive in theory. Geddoe's biggest strengths are his above average skill rank and his two open rune slots. He can achieve a B+ or higher in most melee skills and magic skills, and his two rune slots allow you to build him either as a mage or fighter. As such, Geddoe is one of the more flexible characters in the story and can be developed into whatever type of fighter the player needs.

Geddoe has one slot with a permanent True Rune attached but he starts with one other slot and gains another at Lv. 35. Since he actually has a decent magic stat, this makes him a good candidate for the Pale Gate Rune. Geddoe actually has fairly good compatibility with all the elemental runes, and he gets a B+ or higher on all the basic Magic skills except Water Magic, which he only gets a B in. This means Geddoe can easily mix and match different elemental runes for extra flexibility. Geddoe is also a good melee fighter, so a Fury Rune and Double Strike Rune can give him an added boost.

He performs because he is asked to, but he has no desire to do so.

Captain of the Twelfth Unit of the Southern Frontier Defense Force. He's silent and unpleasant, but is known as a wise and reliable warrior.

Before joining the Frontier Defense Force seven or eight years ago, he explored faraway nations.

He must be more than 100 years old. It's been 50 years since he and the Flame Champion parted ways. What was he doing during those years?

He's exactly 112 years old. I'm pretty sure about that because I asked Sana.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Geddoe is the oldest main character in the series.
  • Geddoe is unique among the main characters in the series as he's the only playable main character in the series to have a True Rune before the game starts, although it is revealed later in the game.
  • Geddoe has the highest natural skill level in Fire Magic among the three main characters of Suikoden III at a solid B+, making him a good alternate candidate for the True Fire Rune should the player choose.
  • While the game has never stated how Geddoe lost his eye, the manga adaption explains he lost it during the First Fire Bringer War.
  • Geddoe's starting money in Suikoden III is 12,000 potch.
  • Geddoe bears a striking resemblance to the Magic:The Gathering character Veldrane.
