Isato (イサト, Isato) is a supporting character in Suikoden V. Isato is an elven archer who serves as chief cleric in the Holy Land of Lunas.
Isato“ Humans making it through these woods, on their own... That's amazing! ”
Isato is a young elf who worked as the chief cleric of Oracle Haswar in the Holy Land of Lunas. Isato entered into Haswar's service as he felt a great debt to her when she prohibited mining of the gold reserves that exist in the lands around Lunas, also protecting Alseid's natural environment from resource exploitation. Haswar trusts him greatly and he has a no-nonsense, strict personality that regularly made him an inflexible man to deal with.
During the Sun Rune War, he would join the Imperial City Recapture Army alongside Haswar in order to bring an end to the fighting as quick as possible. During the war, he showed his exceptional skill with the bow, especially when fighting alongside Urda, another elven archer from his homeland.
Following the war, Isato would return to Lunas where he continued to assist Haswar in her duties. It is said he would return to Alseid only once more in his life.
