Rina (リィナ, Ryina) is a character in Suikoden II who also appears in Gensosuikogaiden Volume 2. Rina is a performer in a travelling circus group with Eilie and Bolgan.
Man“ Maybe that beautiful fortune teller will read my future... ”
Rina was a travelling performer hailing from the Grassland, although she had been constantly travelling since she could walk. Rina, along with her sister, Eilie, and their friend, Bolgan, formed a travelling circus in which Rina would perform as a fortuneteller. Her parents died while she was a child and she has been taking care of her sister since, gaining far more experience than her age would suggest.
Rina and the rest of the troupe stopped through the City-State of Jowston. After performing in the town of Ryube Village, Rina, Eilie, and Bolgan travelled briefly with the hero in order to reach the Highland Kingdom. Though briefly stopped by guards, Rina was able to convince them to allow the party through. However, business in Highland proved poor and Rina and her party returned to Jowston, where they once again met the hero and decided to travel onward with him, eventually becoming part of the New State Army.
Following the Dunan Unification War, Rina continued to travel with Eilie and Bolgan, leading the group of performers around the world.
Personality and Traits
Rina was said to be poised, sophisticated and was considered to be beautiful. Richmond had trouble believing that Rina was only a year older than her sister due to her maturity and confidence and Rina was quick to use this charm to try to gain what she desired.
Rina was very close to both Eilie and Bolgan. She worried about what would happen to them should anything ever happen to her. Rina also frequently mentioned Eilie to the hero, encouraging him to be nice to her and visit her. She also had an impressive ability to hold her liquor, beating Viktor in a drinking contest.
