Humphrey was born in SY 426. He later became a Lieutenant of the Scarlet Moon Empire's Elite Guards, and the Captain of the Imperial Army's Hundred Man Battalion. However, he quit after killing his superior during the Kalekka Incident and has been a fugitive ever since. He doesn't say much, but is very skilled with the sword.
Humphrey appears to have a short blonde hair and brown eyes.
In Suikoden, he only wears a gray suit of armor with an orange cape.
In Suikoden II which is three years after the Gate Rune Wars, Humphrey is later seen wearing a green long sleeved collared tunic with white folded sleeves with a brown side belt at the left side of his tunic, black pants and brown boots. He also wears brown gloves and his cape is now yellow instead of orange which is long up to the back of his tunic.
He was one of the original members of the Liberation Army. During the Gate Rune Wars, he encounters his rival Kreutz at the Dragon Knights' Fortress and is revealed to be good friends with Joshua Levenheit. After Black died, Joshua asks Humphrey to take care of Futch, and he agreed. Since then, he has been travelling with Futch.
During the Dunan Unification War, Humphrey and Futch were travelling to Harmonia but because of the war, the boarders were closed so they remained in Highway Village for a while. Riou was able to befriend Humphrey and he even paid for Riou and his party's stay in the inn. Humphrey, Futch and Riou along with his party, went to Mt. Rakutei in search for Kent. When they found Kent they also found a baby white dragon and rescued it. He later joined the New State Army and helped Riou in his fight against the Highland Army. After the war, he set off again on a journey for the One Temple of the Crystal Valley with Futch.
