Nalkul (ナルクル, Narukuru) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV and Suikoden Tactics. Nalkul is a rough Nay-Kobold hoping to make a big splash in the world.
Nalkul“ We're gonna be famous! I don't know how yet, but I'm planning on asking Mr. Chiepoo next chance I get! ”
Nalkul is a young Nay-Kobold who is the close friend of Champo. Although he and Champo often engaged in petty theft and other roguish activities, Nalkul is, at heart, a friendly person, taking care of Champo even while berating him. Like most Nay-Kobolds, he did not like baths and avoided them when he could.
Like Champo, Nalkul looked up to Chiepoo for his leaving the village and travelling the world, although even Chiepoo was surprised by this hero-worship. Nalkul would steal the Golden Seal from the leader of the Headquarters Ship but when he realised that the Nay-Kobold accompanying him was Chiepoo himself, he offered to return the Golden Seal immediately and join the crew of the ship.
After the Island Liberation War ended, Nalkul and Champo would begin a business on Nay Island as apprentices of Chiepoo.
