The Great Contract (大盟約, Dai Meiyaku) was a treaty signed many years before the events of Suikoden.
In ancient times, the Great Contract was established between the four races of the Great Forest; humans, dwarves, kobolds and elves. It was intended to define the lands of each of the four races, each agreeing to the inviolability of the agreement.
