Chapman (チャップマン, Chappuman) is a character in the original Suikoden game. Before and during the Gate Rune War, he was an armour merchant, but later quit his job to enter the entertainment industry.


“ We're always well-stocked. ”

Chapman was an merchant who ran an armour store in the town of Antei. He had a sharp tongue that frequently led him to argue and cause trouble with his customers on an almost daily basis. However, there was a reason behind his bitterness. It was because he felt a deep frustration with himself for not being of any use to the Toran Liberation Army.

When the Liberation Army visited Antei, Chapman saw his chance and joined them in a characteristic flurry of righteous anger. He would go on to open an armour shop at Toran Castle, making the finest armour available at all times. His straight-forward nature meant that he never had any problem insisting on payment for his efforts, however.

After the end of the Gate Rune War, Chapman discarded the armour business completely and opened a theatre, which proved to be a great success.
