Selma (セルマ, Seruma) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV and Suikoden Tactics. Selma is a taciturn elf whose exile leads her to joining the protagonist's forces.
Selma“ This was my first time getting on a ship, and I am pleased to say it is quite a comfortable experience. ”
Selma was an elf who lived in the Elven Settlement on Na-Nal Island. She was a very quiet person and, although not without bias, generally believed in the pointlessness of the human-elf conflict on Na-Nal, marking her as something of an eccentric amongst her people.
When Lino En Kuldes and the leader were imprisoned by the Elven Elder following their theft of the Elven Remedy, Selma ended up releasing them. This action incurred the wrath of the elder, leading to her exile. Following this, she volunteered her services in order to fight the Kooluk Empire and joined the crew of the Headquarters Ship.
Following the Island Liberation War, she was allowed to return to the Elven Settlement due to her deeds in fighting the Kooluk.
