Biography

Fubar's profile
“Hugo's griffin comrade. Highly intelligent and even seems to understand spoken languages.”

Fubar is a particularly intelligent griffin, able to understand human speech. He first met Hugo when they both were four years old. Fubar had been found as a baby and brought back to Karaya Village. The two have been friends since they met but when he became a fully matured griffin, Fubar was to be imprisoned and sold off by Lucia. Hugo would release Fubar in the night and in return, Fubar rescued Hugo from a pack of wild wolves. Following this, Fubar was allowed to remain with the Karaya.

Although tame, he is a proud griffin and generally does not like to carry anyone other Hugo. He faithfully accompanied Hugo on his travels, helping him escape from several perilous situations. Following the War of the Champions, he continued to live with Hugo in the rebuilt Karaya Village.

Trivia

  • Probably more accurately localised as "Hoover."
  • Fubar is one of three characters in Suikoden III who can serve as a mount during battle. The other two characters are Bright and Ruby who serve as mounts for Futch and Franz, respectively.
