Nick is the Tensui Star in Suikoden V.



Nick is a Dragon Cavalry Trainee and despite being terrible in flute playing, he is good on dragon horse riding and swordmanship that make him to be the top student in class. His dragon horse partner is Ax.


Nick has brown hair and wears a bandana on his head. He also wears a purple armor and long boots. His weapon of choice is a katana.




During the Sun Rune War, Godwins infested Gordius, Nick, Yoran, Ax, Rahal, Roog and Freyjadour Falenas sneak in the cave where the Dragon Horses lay their eggs and discovered that the Dragon Horses eggs was held as a hostage by the Godwins.

Nick played his flute and the Dragon Horses cried loudly. Dolph who was one of the followers of the Godwins can't take the loud noise of the Dragon Horses made and can't pay attention on the thing he was doing. Georg Prime use this chance to protect the Dragon Horses' eggs.

After successfully rescuing the Dragon Horses, the Dragon Cavalry joined the Loyalist Army along with Nick and helped them to regain the Ceras Lake Castle. As a member of the Loyalist Army, he stayed at the Ceras Lake Castle and helped the Loyalist Army until the war end. After the war, he is admitted to the Cavalry soon after the war. Together with Ax, he gives Roog and Lance a run for their money.

Role in the Game

There are two ways to recruit Nick:

  1. If you chose to flee from the HQ, Nick joins automatically after the events in Gordius Village.
  2. If you chose not to flee from the HQ, enter Gordius Village with an all-male party. Complete a mission with Nick and choose the response "It was Nick and Yoran!". Nick will join later.

First off, Nick joins you very late in the game and at the low level he starts at, it might seem to be a waste to level him up. In addition to that, his stats aren't special and there are many other options for S-range fighters, like for example Belcoot, Georg or Richard.

However, if you give Nick a try, you will notice that his damage can be amplified with a lot of options. He has three open rune slots by level 55, so giving him the right runes makes him quite a glass cannon, with paperthin defense and incredible nuking potential. Also, some of his epic skills are very good, which also helps him with killing stuff.

Nick is picked up late in the game, but if you take some half an hour to bring him to higher levels, he can be really useful.

Nick offers a speed boost and two uses of the Charge ability to the military unit he accompanies.

  1. The boy´s been training hard in Gordius to become a Dragon Cavalry soldier. He´s not officialy "there" yet, but he and Ax are already like partners.
  2. He´s the best swordsman in his class and his riding´s top-notch, but at playing the flute, he´s just hopeless. He says it´s because he can´t sing, but you don´t have to be a good singer to play an instrument.
  3. Once, when Roy, Richard, and Nick were talking, they saw Nifsara staring at them with a big smile on her face. Three pretty boys at once -- she must have been overwhelmed!

  • Why?

Why are there so many girls in the Loyalist Army?! We never had that problem back in Gordius! What kind of army is this?

  • Make a Bet

Dear Prince, Please bet on Ax! I just know we'll win!

  • Playing the Flute
Every time I try to practice, Yoran and Ax stop me! They're so mean!
