Lindwurm Mercenary Brigade is a group which appears in Suikoden V.
A mercenary organisation based and administered from the Zelant Kingdom, across the sea to the west of the Falena Queendom. The Lindwurm Mercenary Brigade numbers approximately 5,000 members worldwide. However, as not many nations have need for so many units at once, the organisation is split into several small units, numbering as few as two to three hundred men, and hired out across the globe.
The Brigade seems to offer its unit leaders a degree of autonomy in choosing which jobs to accept. Wilhelm, who led a unit, along with his sub commander, Mueller, picked their own offers to accept during the Falenan Civil War despite his initial employment only being for the Defense of Rainwall.
However, the Brigade also expects its members and those who hire them to stick to the letter of the agreement. Wilhelm's unit withdrew from the Defense of Rainwall when it was announced that the Armes Southern Mountain Corps had been uncovered. The unit had been contracted to defend against the House of Godwin and thus withdrew.
Wilhelm's unit of the Mercenary Brigade is the only one revealed to date and one of the most famed, after it's exploits during the Falenan Civil War. Brigade member Richard is known for his prowess with a sword, enough to earn him the nickname of "Blademaster", and was offered to lead his own unit after the war. However, he politely declined, opting to stay in Mueller's unit instead.
