Oboro (オボロ, Oboro), once known as Shinatsu (シナツ, Shinatsu), is a supporting character in Suikoden V. Oboro is a detective who used to work for Nether Gate as the head of their intelligence division.
Oboro“ I grew up in Nether Gate. The intelligence division, specifically, so I had a lot of opportunities to get to know the outside world. It gave me a lot to think about... ”
Oboro is the head of the self-titled Oboro Detective Agency. He renovated a ship to serve as his office, allowing him to travel all over the Queendom of Falena with ease. He is a polite, calm fellow with a high tension personality.
In the past, he had served as the head of Nether Gate's intelligence division under the name Shinatsu. Feeling guilty for his role in training innocent children to serve as killers for the organisation, he agreed with Ferid's proposal to dismantle the organisation. He would take Shigure and Sagiri with him, opening the detective agency to allow them to apply their skills in a more ordinary profession. Fuyo was his first client and would also work for them following her case.
During the Sun Rune War, Oboro was asked by the Prince of Falena to investigate the Lordlake Uprising. Following the investigation, he and his companions would agree to work for the Imperial City Recapture Army for the remainder of the war. His hobbies include making business cards and training his assistants, all dubbed Mr. Mouse.
Following the war, he would leave his agency to Fuyo, travelling to Nagarea with the intent of settling things once and for all with the former leaders of Nether Gate hiding out there.
