Etienne (エチエンヌ, Echiennu) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV. Etienne is a minstrel who served Schtolteheim Reinbach III.
Etienne“ I will perform to the best of my abilities to soothe everyone's souls. Please come listen anytime. ”
Etienne was a bard who served the Reinbach household in Middleport. He held a large, sincere respect especially for Reinbach III.
As such, Etienne was quite frustrated at not being able to perform for Reinbach once he joined the Island Liberation Navy but the two would be reunited when Etienne was invited aboard the Headquarters Ship also.
Aboard the ship, Etienne would perform in the saloon there, healing the hearts of weary fighters with his songs, his repertoire growing throughout the war. Following the Island Liberation War, he would return to Middleport where he continued to play for Reinbach while composing many beautiful and beloved songs.
