Glen Cott (グレン・コット, Guren Kotto) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV. Commander Glen was the leader of the Knights of Gaien just prior to the outbreak of the Island Liberation War.
Glen Cott“ You must all strive to become knights even greater than Troy! Do you understand?! ”
Glen Cott served as the Commander of the Knights of Gaien immediately prior to the Island Liberation War and was a veteran of the Dukedom of Gaien's battles against the Kooluk Empire. He was the instructor of both Snowe Vingerhut and his friend, whom he cared for due to his status as an orphan.
Although he could be warm, Glen was also a harsh and demanding leader working to make the best out of his young charges. He was the father of Katarina but very few people knew of this. He himself remained unaware of their connection all his life.
When Snowe's ship was attacked by the pirate Brandeau, Glen would end up inheriting the Rune of Punishment after arriving to rescue the recent graduates. He would struggle with the rune for a time before using it to repel a pirate crew that attacked Razril. He would then lose his life to the rune's curse, with the rune passing on to Snowe's friend, who had arrived just in time to witness his death.
