Axel (アクセル, Akuseru) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV and Suikoden Tactics. Axel is a fiery, young warrior of Na-Nal Island.
Axel“ Since coming on board, I've talked to all sorts of people, and maybe elves aren't so bad. It's just a little thought I had. Just a little one. ”
Axel was the proud, hot-tempered son of the Na-Nal Island Chief. His stubbornness often led him to make hasty decisions. Out of all the warriors of Na-Nal Island, his strength was second only to his father's.
When the leader of the Island Liberation Navy set out to liberate the Island Nations from the Kooluk Empire, Axel and his father initially refused to help, preferring to cooperate with the Kooluk forces. However, Axel soon changed his tune once the Kooluk began to slaughter the Na-Nal natives for their perceived culpability in poisoning the Kooluk garrison on the island.
Although undeniably inexperienced, Axel was certainly a skilled warrior. Following the Island Liberation War, he would succeed his father as Chief of Na-Nal.
He is one of the warriors Lino En Kuldes sent out to support Kyril after the discovery of the restoration of El-Eal Fortress. He still bore heavy resentment against the Kooluk Empire and claimed that he would never forgive them for their occupation of his home island. Also, he wanted to further the negotiations between Elves and humans on Na-Nal, promising that Selma and he would seriously discuss the rebuilding efforts of the island after the fall of the Kooluk Empire.
