Kyle (カイル, Kairu) is a supporting character in Suikoden V. Kyle is the cavalier, care-free member of Falena's Queen's Knights.


Kyle was a frivolous young man who occasionally chaffed against the restrictions of the Queen's Knights. He was a orphan in the city of Lelcar, where he would be taken in and raised by Volga. As he matured, he became known as something of a womanizer, leaving a trail of broken hearts in his wake. When he broke the heart of the adopted daughter of Lord De Beers, his habits caught up with him and he was forced to flee the city.

When the New Armes Kingdom invaded Falena in 441, Kyle would sign up with the volunteer army. His strength and tenacity in battle would catch the eye of Ferid. Following the war, Kyle would be one of the young soldiers chosen to fill the ranks of the depleted Queen's Knights. There, he would occasionally be accused of being a puppet of the Barows Faction, due to his opposition to the policies of Marscal Godwin, claims that would later prove to be unfounded.

When the Sun Palace fell to the Godwin Faction at the outset of the Sun Rune War, Kyle would rush to the Prince's side and help protect him from the attacks of Dolph and Childerich with his water rune magic. The two would be separated after this battle but Kyle would manage to rejoin the refugees in Rainwall. Although he regretted not being able to protect Arshtat and Ferid, he would decide to fight in the Imperial City Recapture Army.

Normally calm, when he had the opportunity to face Zahhak in battle, Kyle fought with tenacity and anger, furious at Zahhak's betrayal of Arshtat and Ferid. He would win the battle, securing the reunion of the Prince and Princess Lymsleia. After this Kyle would continue to fight on the forefront of the army for the remainder of the war.

Once the war ended, Kyle would retire from his position as a Queen's Knight. Instead of returning to Lelcar, he moved abroad, living a life of peace and quiet.
