Kwanda Rosman (クワンダ・ロスマン, Kuwanda Rosuman) is a supporting character in Suikoden. One of the Five Great Generals of the Scarlet Moon Empire, Kwanda Rosman loyally served Barbarosa for 10 years.


Kwanda Rosman
“ My loyalty for Emperor Barbarosa remains firm. But I cannot serve the present Emperor, whoever he may be. ”

Kwanda Rosman is a powerful soldier and Great General who favours the use of the halberd in battle. He became known as "Iron Wall Rosman" and "Kwanda the Insurmountable" for his invulnerable defence, heavy armour and dedication towards protecting Barbarosa's life during the War of Succession. The armour he wears has been handed down from generation to generation in the Rosman family. During the War of Succession he once shielded Barbarosa from a flurry of arrows and survived thanks to his armour.

During the Gate Rune War, Kwanda Rosman was stationed at Pannu Yakuta Castle and under the influence of Windy's Conqueror Rune used the Burning Mirror to destroy the Village of the Elves. In response to this, the Toran Liberation Army defeated Kwanda at the Battle at Pannu Yakuta Castle and its leader defeated Kwanda in a duel.

Freed from the effects of the Black Rune and realizing that the Empire was quickly becoming corrupt beyond repair, Kwanda agreed to join the Liberation Army. Following the fall of the Scarlet Moon Empire, he became the Commander in Chief of the Republican Army showing that the new Toran Republic was also insurmountable.
