Elite Soldier (Suikoden)
The Elite Soldier (エリートへい, Erīto Hei) is an enemy in the first Suikoden.
During the late Gate Rune War, these soldiers guarded Moravia and the Floating Fortress of Shasarazade. These soldiers are carefully selected from the strongest in the Imperial Army, with their skills as a soldier on par with anything else. These troops mercilessly cut down any intruders. Even though it is tough, some have managed to defeat the Elite Soldiers, finding the rare Rage Crystal as well as the Horned Helmet, which boasts the highest strength of all helmets.
- There are actually two types of Elite Soldier; a standard officer-type at Moravia, as well as a commanding officer-type at the Floating Fortress of Shasarazade. The one at Shasarazade is slightly stronger.
