Gremio was a soldier under the command of Teo McDohl during the Succession War. However, he decided to become a servant to the McDohl Family after Teo saved his life in battle. Gremio raised the son of Teo McDohl due to his father being busy and because his mother died after giving birth to him. Thus, Gremio acted as a parent to Tir McDohl.
Gremio is a somewhat thin man with long blond hair tied into a low ponytail, with a notable x-shaped scar on his right cheek. He wears blue clothes and a green cape. His weapon of choice is an axe.
Gremio is a caring and protective man, looking after Tir like a parent for a significant portion of his life. He is loyal to the point of being willing to die to protect Tir.
Gremio followed Tir into the Gate Rune Wars and protected him wherever he went. He even lost his life protecting him in Soniere Prison, but was miraculously brought back to life by the powers of the Gate Rune and the 108 Stars of Destiny.
Gremio appears in Suikoden II along with Tir McDohl in Banner Village after defeating Luca Blight if you have transferred game data from Suikoden into Suikoden II from the last save point in Gregminster Castle. Gremio must have been obtained at the end of the game after recruiting the other 107 Stars of Destiny. Gremio is a non-playable character in this game and joins your convoy during the McDohl side quest.
Role in the Game
Joins automatically before receiving the first mission from Kraze, but leaves after the events in Soniere. However, he rejoins just before the final battle if all 107 other stars are recruited.
Gremio is a required party member during the early parts of the game. He is an average character in stat growth, but his medium range weapon makes him a good back or front row character. His weapon also gains some significant power at the highest level, which helps to offset his average strength. The best with offense he could do is to the Talisman Attack with Pahn, which benefits both of them with double damage and no unbalance at all. He will also protect Tir in combat if Tir is at critical HP.
