Goesch (ゲッシュ, Gesshu) is a supporting character in Suikoden V. Goesch is a young man from Lordlake, brimming with anger.
Goesch“ I went to all the trouble of preparing these fields, but without seeds or seedlings, what good are they? ”
Goesch was originally a farmer in the town of Lordlake, being a natural leader for the youths of the town, as a considered sort of fellow. Following the Lordlake Uprising, however, he lost his smile and became filled with anger and resentment towards the royal house of Falena for what happened to the town. Still, he never let his anger get out of control, putting a halt to attempts to storm Hatred Fortress multiple times out of concern for the safety of the town and its residents.
Once the truth of the Barows Faction' involvement was revealed during the Sun Rune War, Goesch would join the Imperial City Recapture Army. He would not only fight, but returning to his farming roots that once brought him so much happiness as part of the army.
Once the war ended, he followed in the footsteps of Talgeyl, functioning as a facilitator in Lordlake. His youthful spark and passion helped inspire and promote the reconstruction of the town.
