Viki (ビッキー, Bikkī) is a recurring character who appears in seven games in the Suikoden series. Viki is a ditzy teleporter from another dimension who remains much of a mystery.
Viki“ Oh! Oh! Magic? Use magic? Me? ”
Viki first appeared in the Toran region when she teleported into the Forest of Moran while McDohl and his entourage were passing through. Confused and disoriented, Viki was surprised to find out that she was in the Scarlet Moon Empire, remarking that it was "almost on the other side". Lost and obviously out of place, Viki was taken in by the Toran Liberation Army where she helped teleport the hero's entourage where they needed to go in the Toran region. Befitting her nature, she would sometimes forget spells.
Following the end of the Gate Rune War, Viki disappeared without a trace following a failed teleportation attempt. She would end up in the Matilda Knightdom, three years later, during the Dunan Unification War. Appearing in front of the leader of the New State Army, she would agree to join the group, once again lending her teleport magic to the group.
Following the end of the Dunan Unification War, Viki would sneeze during a celebratory banquet, once again vanishing in the process. According to one story, she would appear in front of Nash Latkje as he travelled to Crystal Valley. Noticing that her friends from the New State Army, Millie and Meg were there and overhearing that they were lost, she attempted to teleport them to their destination. This would end up taking the group through a variety of times and locations. During this adventure, they would also meet a younger version of Viki, deepening her mystery further.
Viki would next appear at the Mountain Path near the border between the Grassland and the Holy Kingdom of Harmonia, some 15 years after her last appearance. She would join the Fire Bringer throughout the War of the Champions with her blinking magic. After the war had ended, she attempted to teleport everybody home following a banquet, disappear herself in the attempt.
In the past, she had also found herself in the Queendom of Falena after yet another disastrous sneeze, suddenly appearing in front of the Prince of Falena. Lost in a country she had little knowledge of, she agreed to join the Imperial City Recapture Army, using her blinking skills to teleport members of the army where they were needed, quickly and easily.
During her time with the Recapture Army, she was confronted by Lorelai, who demanded to know why Viki denying helping her and Killey escape from the Deep Twilight Ruins some time in the past. This merely confused Viki, who apparently had not experience that event from her perspective yet, making her think Lorelai was bullying her.
Once the Sun Rune War ended, Viki ended up disappearing again with another sudden, unexpected sneeze.
