Nico (ニコ, Niko) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV. Nico is the Headquarters Ship exceptional lookout.


“ When I'm up in the crow's nest, I sometimes get a strange feeling. The wind and the waves somehow sound like they're talking... It's true. ”

Nico was a young man who served as the lookout aboard the Headquarters Ship. He was well trusted by his fellow sailors due to his serious diligence when it came to his work coupled with his polite demeanor. As a lookout, he had exceptional talent, his amazing eyesight gaining him the adulation, and jealousy, of Wendel in particular.

He was one of the original crew members of the Headquarters Ship and served both Lino En Kuldes and it's leader faithfully throughout the Island Liberation War. His uncanny talents allowed him to spot enemy ships quickly, making him a vital asset during the war. On board ship, Nico's diligent nature made him doubt Haruto's commitment to his job although he did have high standards for everyone on board. He also had trouble shaking off Wendel, even after stating he was not looking for an apprentice.

Once the war ended, he continued to serve as a lookout on the Kingdom of Obel patrol ships.


Keen You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Nico O-Okay.
Keen Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?
Nico What? Hmmmm...Like Mr. Haruto? Because I've never once seen Mr. Haruto doing any work...
Keen Then, would you tell me what you think of Lazlo?
Nico Sir Lazlo? Well, I think Sir Lazlo works at a feverish pace! I almost think he might be working a little too hard.
Keen Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Nico I'll apologize! I know I shouldn't be wasting time in this place right now! For that, I am very sorry!!


Nico Oh? Have I...escaped punishment? Whew...Thank goodness...


Nico ...!! Owowow...I was wrong! I meant to say, I am terribly sorry!!
