Chandler (チャンドラー, Chandorā) is a character in the original Suikoden game. An idle peddler, he was recruited to join the Toran Liberation Army and sold his wares to supply the soldiers in their effort.
Chandler“ Welcome to the hardware store. I always wanted to say that. ”
Chandler was a wandering merchant who travelled making whatever profit he could. He was actually quite successful, having a reliable distribution network which allowed him to be able to peddle a wide variety of goods. His real wish, however, was to open his own store.
Chandler eagerly joined the Toran Liberation Army after meeting McDohl at the Fortress of Kwaba and helped supply the fledgling force. Using his knowledge and experience gained from his years as a travelling peddler, Chandler was able to easily provide the Liberation Army with almost anything they needed, for a price.
After the Gate Rune War, Chandler did not remain attached to Toran Castle and instead opened up a full-time civilian item store in an undisclosed location, finally fulfilling his dream.
