Simeon (シメオン, Shimeon) is a supporting character from Suikoden Tactics. Simeon is a powerful magician who is intrigued by the mysteries of the Evil Eye.

Information

Simeon was a magician long famed in the Kooluk Empire for his abilities. He was a genius-level mage who resided in Haruna for some time before being confronted by the Patriarchal Faction. Refusing to be conscripted, he fought off the soldiers with the help of Kyril and his friends. Afterwards, he would accompany the group, intrigued by the Evil Eye and willing to research the possibilities of reversing the transformations it caused.

Despite his great prowess, his experiments using an Alger Doll and a Wizened Arm, which ultimately involved opening portals to different dimensions, proved fruitless and Simeon was forced to conclude that reversing the effects of the Evil Eye was impossible.

Despite his youthful appearance, it seemed that Simeon was quite advanced in age. Along with his magical abilities, there had been tales of him helping others dating back many decades. The truth behind his youthful appearance is unknown. He also seemed to be an acquaintance of Jeane, though their relationship is also a mystery. As well as intelligent, Simeon was also a caring person, taking efforts to dissuade Maxine from undertaking assassination work for her own piece of mind.

Following the destruction of the Evil Eye, Simeon would accompany Corselia on her search for Kyril, seemingly without success.
