Wendel (ウェンデル, Uenderu) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV and Suikoden Tactics. Wendel is the aggressively straightforward apprentice of Nico.
Wendel“ I'm on board! On this ship!!! Woohoo!!!!! ”
Wendel was a tomboyish and overly honest person who idolised Nico, the leader of the lookouts on board the Headquarters Ship of the Island Liberation Navy. She pursued Nico with the dream of becoming a fully-fledged lookout like him.
Following her dreams, she was able to board the vessel as it left the Kingdom of Obel as it was occupied by the Kooluk Empire and join the navy, wishing to learn under Nico.
She would learn a lot from Nico, despite his unease at having such a fanatical apprentice, and following the Island Liberation War, she would continue to study hard, determined to surpass Nico is nautical knowledge in the future.
Following the order of King Lino En Kuldes himself, she would later help Kyril in his investigations of the Rune Cannons in the Kooluk Empire. She shows her frank attitude when she confronts Kyril, asking him why he did not join them during the Island Liberation War. She thinks his injury is just a pitiful excuse, but adds that he has become strong and has "cleaned up well".
- Wendel is one of three characters in Suikoden Tactics who does not show any form of Good Will with other characters, the other two characters being Ameria and Lalacle.
