Anabelle (アナベル, Anaberu) is a supporting character in Suikoden II. Anabelle is the popular mayor of Muse City at the beginning of the Dunan Unification War.
Anabelle“ I was born in Muse, raised in Muse. It’s natural that I want to protect her. ”
Anabelle was the mayor of Muse City at the onset of the Dunan Unification War. Her father, Darell, had been mayor before her and she inherited a major role as one of the leaders of the City-State of Jowston. As a mayor, Anabelle was extremely talented, attempting to promote unity within Jowston despite it so often colliding internally over politics. Her track record is largely down to her politically skill as well as her personal magnetism. Of course, the roles of people such as Hauser, Jess and Fitcher in supporting and aiding her were not inconsiderable either. Similar to McDohl and the son of Genkaku, Anabelle was a skilled leader able to gather talented personnel. She could truly be considered a great leader.
However, despite her talents, Anabelle was only one person and could only accomplish so much in the fractured City-State. Due to her commitment to protect the peace of the people of Jowston, she also had little time for personal relationships. However, she was an old friend of Viktor and the two often drank together, although the social gap between the two was said to be too great to entertain anything more than their camaraderie.
When the Highland Kingdom began their attack on Jowston, Anabelle struggled to pull the disunited powers together. Before anything more could be accomplished, she was betrayed and murdered in her room at night by Jowy Atreides. Although Anabelle was one person, her death was a great blow to the crumbling City-State.
