Yuber is the Tenyu Star in Suikoden III. He had been present in many major wars through the history of the Northern Continent. His nature is unknown, but it appears that his objective is to spread chaos.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
He is a callous and mysterious Black Knight who frequently appears in the midst of war conflicts. He openly states that he is not human, and other characters who have come into contact with him remark on his inhuman traits.
He bears the Eightfold Rune, a True Rune of unknown capabilities; while he has the power to summon powerful monsters, such as the Bone Dragon which appeared in Greenhill during the Dunan Unification War, it is unclear whether that power stems from the True Rune or some other source.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Yuber in his first two appearances, wears heavy black armor very similar to the same armor worn by his pursuer, also Black Knight, Pesmerga.
This armor is almost all black, with large spikes sticking out from the shoulders, and he wears a large black horned helmet. his eyes are dark and cold, and he wears a bored expression, however, he has noticeable long blond hair.
In his third appearance years later chronologically, Yuber suddenly shows up looking entirely different, the only similar thing about him being his blond hair, though it's tied into a massive ponytail. He now wears a long black coat and pants, even sporting a black fedora. His appearance is most likely this way to throw Pesmerga off his trial.
Personality[edit | edit source]
He feels no affection for his employers and works only with them to cause chaos, as evidenced by his desertion of the Highland Kingdom and his summoner Leon Silverberg when it becomes clear that they will lose. He harbors a deep hatred toward the True Runes and actively tries to destroy those who wield their power.
Story[edit | edit source]
Suikoden I[edit | edit source]
During the Toran Liberation War, Tir, Viktor, Cleo, and a young Ted, encounter him in a vision of the past the Star Dragon Sword's curse sent them to. He went to the Village of the Hidden Rune with Windy and Neclord. Ordered to stand on guard, Yuber's presence was unknown until he set the village on fire when the chief continued to deny them access to the Soul Eater. As the group tried to escape with the young Ted in tow, Yuber threatened to kill them, only to be stopped by Neclord upon the summoning of Lady Windy. He is later seen leading the final defence of Gregminster against the Toran Liberation Army but flees once the battle is lost.
Suikoden II[edit | edit source]
In the heat of the Dunan Unification War, he was hired by Leon in order to crush the New State Army. He appeared in Greenhill, where he meet Riou here. He invoked the Bone Dragon, but Riou managed to destroy it. He continued to help the Highland Army with others war battles, but as the Highland Army was loosing, he completely left it.
Suikoden III[edit | edit source]
In Suikoden III, Albert Silverberg summons Yuber in order to further his and Luc's plans. Yuber willingly agrees to help them, as Luc's plan will bring about mass chaos and death, both of which he is fond of. After being defeated by the bearer of the True Lightning Rune, however, he once again abandons his employers when their defeat is inevitable.

Yuber is an offensive beast. He only gets one Unique Skill, which is Heavy Damage, but he also can get it to Rank A. His Accuracy is Rank S, and his Swing and Repel are both Rank A, as well as a B+ in Damage. This allows Yuber to cause devestating damage to anyone he is facing. Often times, Yuber can actually finish off most of the party's enemies before even Luc or Sarah can cast their spells. Combining this with his decent magic attribute, Yuber is a very flexible character and easily the best damage dealer in the game.

Yuber is a pretty decent mage who gets a B+ in both Fire and Lightning Magic so he's pretty good with his Lightning Rune. He gets an A ranking in Sword of Magic as well. Since he gets a third rune slot and his Lightning Rune can be removed, Yuber has some good customization options, especially when you factor in some of the overpowered runes available in regular shops during the chapter he's available in. A Fury Rune is especially recommended to boost his considerable attack power.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Yuber has a form of heterochromia iridum, which is an ocular anomaly where a person has two different eye colors. In Yuber's case, he has two different types of eyes. One is normal and is gray colored, while the other has a cat like-slitted iris and is red.
- Cleo and Geddoe, both, comment how he is not human. Yuber refers to himself as non-human too.
- During major battles in Suikoden III, Yuber is usually the main target to defeat in order to achieve victory.
- If Yuber is soundly defeated in a regular battle, he may call the player a Cheat or a Cheater. The player has to cheat in order to win most of the regular battles against Yuber (except for the final one, where Yuber is probably going easy and is not actually killed, only warps away after the defeat), so Yuber knowing it might have something to do with Hachifusa's true power.
- In Suikoden III, he radically changed his appearance from the previous wars to eliminate his tracks from Pesmerga, proven by the fact that Pesmerga does not appear in Suikoden III.
