Biography

Suikoden

Futch
“ Hold on tight, or you'll fall off. Not that I'd mind if one of you did fall off. ”

Futch was a 9th Rank Dragon Knight who was partnered with the dragon Black. During the Gate Rune War, Futch and Black were hired to escort the Imperial Guard to Magician's Island.

Later, Futch was reunited with the leader of the Toran Liberation Army and helped to wake the dragons of their sleeping sickness. Futch rushed off to gain a needed ingredient, the Black dragon orchid, from Gregminster Palace's Floating Garden. As Futch was leaving, Windy attacked him using magic; Black was killed but Futch survived with the black dragon orchid intact.

After Futch woke, Joshua Levenheit told Futch that, as he had lost his dragon, he could no longer stay with the Dragon Knights. Joshua Levenheit asked Humphrey Mintz to look over Futch and following the end of the Gate Rune War, Futch departed with Humphrey on a journey.

Suikoden II

Futch
“ I, Futch, Former 9th Rank Dragon Knight, will fight by your side. ”

Futch and Humphrey headed toward Crystal Valley to research dragons but were slowed by the Dunan Unification War and were forced to stay in Highway Village. Futch befriended Kent and would share stores of dragons and the Dragon Knights with him.

When Kent failed to return home, Futch took part in a search for him on Mt. Rakutei. After rescuing Kent, they found a dragon's egg. Though Futch was hesitant to claim the creature, he eventually christened the new pup Bright.

Futch and Humphrey joined the New State Army to repay its leader for his help in searching for Kent. After the war, Humphrey and Futch continued on their jouney to the One Temple in Crystal Valley in order to research Bright's unique colouring and to confirm his dragon status.

Suikoden III

Futch's profile
“ One of the recognized Knights of Dragon, he wandered afar after losing his dragon, Black. He has acquired a new dragon and returned to become Captain Milia's right-hand man. ”

Having regained his status as a Dragon Knight, Futch would work hard and eventually rise to the class of 4th Rank Dragon Knight and Vice-Commander of the Knights of the Dragon's Den. Humphrey would pass on his sword to him and Futch would wield it in battle from that point on. Seen as reliable and dependable, he was tasked with taking care of Sharon, the daughter of the knight's leader.

He was sent to the Grassland during the War of the Champions to aid in reconnaissance against the forces of Harmonia. Once the war was over, he would return to the Dragon Knight's Domain and begin studying towards becoming a 3rd Rank Dragon Knight.

Trivia

  • Futch's weapons in Suikoden and Suikoden II, Verserk, Sigmund, and Sigurd all stem from Norse mythology, although Verserk is a poor translation of Berserker. In Norse mythology, Sigmund was the father of Sigurd, the slayer of Fafnir.
