Oleg (オレーグ, Orēgu) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV. Oleg is a skilled inventor whose work usually goes over the heads of most people.


“ He was not impressed by my camera technique, but I believe that he does appreciate the person that I am. ”

Oleg was an inventor who created a box able to capture an image of whatever it was pointed at. He was also the first person to create and use a video camera in the Island Nations. As an inventor, he was peerless but the inability of others to comprehend his work would often have him regarded simply as an eccentric.

During the Island Liberation War, Lino En Kuldes wished for an audience with Oleg. The same night he was met at Nay Island, his camera would be coincidentally pointed at Iluya Island during its destruction by the giant rune cannon, capturing the moment. Bringing his footage to Obel, Oleg wished to sell his invention and Lino promised him eventual compensation in exchange for his continued service during the war.

Following the war, Oleg would continue to attempt to sell his inventions but found few buyers as no-one would take him seriously.


  • The character design of Oleg is a small tribute to a character of the same from another Kawano Junko-produced game; Shadow of Memories (Shadow of Destiny in North America). That Oleg is a movie producer while Suikoden IV's Oleg invents the video camera.


Keen You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Oleg Hrmm...Somehow, that sounds a bit scary...
Keen Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?
Oleg On this ship? I would say, that King of Obel...He's a bit of a cheapskate. No, really...
Keen Then, would you tell me what you think of Lazlo?
Oleg He seems to have understood my research. Such people make me happy, yes.
Keen Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Oleg Let me think...I would be thankful if this conflict settles down soon.


Oleg So, I've...been forgiven? Whew...Then, please excuse me.


Oleg Whoa!! Wh-What the heck is this?!
