Travis is the Tensyo Star in Suikoden IV.



Travis is the kind of person who likes to be alone and likes quiet places. In other words you could consider him a loner or Hermit of sorts.





During the Island Liberation War, after liberating Obel, Razro entered the deepest part of the Ruins of Obel and found Travis. Travis played a trick on Razro and ask him to used the Escape Scroll to see if it is truly working. After using the Escape Scroll, Razro entered the ruins again and confronted Travis. Travis feel guilty about what he did, he apologised to Lazlo and he joined the Island Liberation Navy.

While he was on board on the Dauntless, he likes Pam's Steamed Bun and her other foods too. He also liked the Nay-Kobolds, in fact he even left a message on the comment box about being jealous on the Nay-Kobold because they were fluffy. After the war, tired of the noise and busy town life, he leaves town to oversee the Ruins of Obel.

Role in the GameEdit

After liberating Obel, speak with Travis at the end of the Obel Ruins. Use a Escape Talisman, go through the ruins again, and then speak with Travis once more.

Travis is a fighter type character with above average stats in attack, defense, and HP. Once he reaches lv50+ he'll start having some magic and has good affinity with the water element, but its better to give him a passive rune to increase his physical attribute than to give him an elemental rune.

Travis is especially useful if using the Reverse Adonis Attack, which is one of the strongest group attack, making it great to clear normal encounters. The downside of this party however is the lack of any good magical output, be it in the form of damage or support, unless the player character has been geared that way.

Travis is a physical fighter who gets some magic nearing the end of the game. It's best to equip a Double Strike Rune or a Warrior Rune, but not both, or he will most likely die after one hit due to both runes effects. The secondary rune can either be magical or another fighter type rune such as the Killer Rune to add to the Double-Strike or Warrior's rune effect. By the time Travis is recruited, he can get to level 50 quickly, and he will have his third level spell by then. Aside from the Double Strike Rune or Warrior Rune, he can use a Fire, Lightning, Wind or Earth Rune, but not a Water Rune, as he is worst with it. The most recommended runes would be Fire, Lightning or Earth. Travis can either be a full-on attacker with fighter runes, an attacker with an attack and magic rune, or a fighter with support magic.

  • Keen: You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Travis: Yeah, no problem.
  • Keen: Would you secretly inform me about anyone on board this ship who you think is causing problems?
Travis: Everyone... is so loud. I wish someone could do something about that.
  • Keen: Then, would you tell me what you think of Razro?
Travis: He's a good guy.
  • Keen: Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Travis: The food here is wonderful. I'm grateful for that.
  • Keen: Then, I shall pass judgement!

Travis: Whew...

Travis: ...

I hope we work well together. Later.

This ship has too many people... Isn't there anywhere I can be alone?

I'm jealous of them. They're so fluffy...
