Hai Yo

"Cooking is more than technique!! At first, I came here just so I could hide from you. But after I started cooking for these nice people, I realized something. I realized that I could help these good people if I served them good food... that I could ease their burdens just a little bit. Cooking isn't about technique!! It's about caring and giving!! That's why I don't need a recipe to be a great chef!!"

Hai Yo is the Chizou Star in Suikoden II.

Story[edit | edit source]

Game[edit | edit source]

During the Dunan Unification War, he went to North Window castle and joined the New State Army. While he was at the castle he opened up a restaurant so he could cook and sell food to others. One day the Black Dragon Clan learned of his whereabouts and went to North Window castle to challenge him in a Cook-off Minigame. Hai Yo along with the help of Riou defeated all of the followers and the other masters of the Black Dragon Clan. After the war, he returned to Black Dragon Island to lay flowers on the grave of his dearly beloved Shun Min.

Role in the Game[edit | edit source]

Find Hai Yo in your castle after the events in Two River, he should be on a balcony the opposite direction of the mountain view, where Yoshino does laundry. Once you find him, talk and choose the first option to have him join.

For most of the game, Hai Yo's stat will all be under average to average, and he'll be forced into the front line due to his S range, making him a bad choice most of the time. However, in the later game he should open a 3rd rune slot allowing you to customize him more, along with a free weapon slot and 3 accessories slot open. With the right set up he can then become a powerhouse, dealing more damage than the likes of Pesmerga. This, however, will require a lot of training and diversion of rare resources toward him that would probably best used on Killey or Sheena who will fill that heavy powerhouse even better due to their superior natural stats.
