Hans (ハンス, Hansu) is a character who appears in Suikoden II. He is an armourer by trade who travelled from Zexen to Jowston to make his fortune.


“ R, really??? You're so kind!!! It must be fate!!! I'm so lucky!!!!! ”

As the second eldest son in his family, Hans did not receive a good inheritance from his unwealthy family and so travelled all the way from the Zexen Federation, far west of the Dunan region in order to open a store. but upon arriving in Two River City, discovered that the city already had an armourer but the leader of the New State Army happened upon the armourer in the New Leaf Inn and gave him the chance to open his own store.

Although he had just enough money to establish himself in Jowston[1], he had also saved up an impressive amount of potch, although it was unknown where he kept it[2].

He remained at the New State Army Headquarters following the Dunan Unification War, continuing to run his armoury there.
