Suikoden II[edit | edit source]

During the Dunan Unification War, he continue to protect Teresa, after the citizen of Greenhill convince Teresa to escape, he along with Teresa joined the New State Army. After the war, he left Greenhill to sharpen his skill as a swordsman, and never returned.

Role in the Game[edit | edit source]

Shin joins automatically after the events in Greenhill.

Shin comes in with good physical strength. His real value lies in his high luck and tech, allowing him to deal a lot of critical, counters, status effect, as well as a good dodge rate, which comes in handy against his sub par defense, both physical and magical. In other words, he is a good front line glass canon. Give him a Killer Rune and cast Clay Guardian on him to increase his pros while diminishing his cons and making him a solid character to have.
