Biography

Suikoden

Gremio
“ Wherever you go, I go, Young Master. ”

Gremio had lost his parents to war at the age of 9 and had spent the next seven years of his life wandering. Teo McDohl found him in the Karakas Desert and brought him to Gregminster. There, he would work as a servant as well as helping to raise Teo's son. Initially, he worked merely to repay his debt to Teo but over time came to truly care for his young charge.

The large gash on his cheek came from an incident during the War of Succession where Teo's son was kidnapped by bandits in the employ of Geil Rugner in order to delay and stop Teo McDohl. Gremio rescued the young child, slaying the bandit kidnappers with his axe but not before being wounded by Assam. After the rescue, Gremio engraved the words, "I will always protect young master," onto his axe, giving it the name "Axe of the Oath." Gremio would keep to this oath, although it occasionally drove him to be overprotective. Although willing to fight to protect the Young Master, at heart he was a familial person, much more comfortable cooking and taking care of the home than battling. Responsible for the food at the McDohl home, he held himself to a very high standard, especially as regards to his stews, which were said to be professional grade.

As a war orphan, Gremio empathized with his young master having never seen the face of his mother. He resolutely swore to protect him and to stay by his side. Thus, after the young master was branded as a fugitive, Gremio left Gregminster along with with as well. During the middle of the Gate Rune War, in an attempt to free Liukan from Soniere Prison, Milich Oppenheimer smashed a vial of the man-eating Spores of Agony in order to stop them. Gremio quickly pushed the other Toran Liberation Army members out of the room and shut himself in the room, sacrificing his life. In his last words, Gremio told Teo's son how proud he was of him for growing into such a responsible, mature young leader.

Prior to the end of the Gate Rune War, Gremio was miraculously restored to life by Leknaat using the power of the 108 Stars and the back half of the Gate Rune, bolstering the morale of the entire Liberation Army. Following the fall of the Scarlet Moon Empire and the end of the Toran Liberation War, Gremio, ever loyal, continued to follow Teo's son after he left the Scarlet Moon Empire.

Suikoden II

Gremio
“ It's been quite a while since we were last in this house... Young Master... Even though this place may hold painful memories, it's still our home. ”

Gremio continued to accompany his master on his journey following the Gate Rune War. When they stopped for a time at Banner Village, Gremio helped to keep people away for his master's piece of mind. Although he understood McDohl's plight, he did encourage him to help Ko when the boy was kidnapped.

He would return to Gregminster with McDohl for a time during the Dunan Unification War.
