Yoran (ヨラン, Yoran) is a minor character in Suikoden V. Yoran is a gifted dragon horse caretaker studying in the Feitas Dragon Cavalry.


Yoran is a dragon horse caretaker trainee, undergoing his apprenticeship is Gordius. He is the best friend of Nick, a Dragon Cavalry trainee. Though he is the younger of the two, he is the one who looks after Nick, managing to keep him out of trouble. Although Yoran is very timid, he is also bright and caring. He is also a talented flutist, usually playing the less gifted Nick's flute for him.

Yoran and Nick become involved in the Sun Rune War when Godwin forces stormed Gordius, taking the dragon eggs hostage and thus stopping the Dragon Cavalry from interfering in the war even after the Godwin forces allied with Armes. Ironically enough, it would be Nick’s terrible flute playing that would come to save the day as Nick’s playing caused such a diversion that Georg Prime was able to get between the Godwin agent Dolph and the eggs, thus neutralizing the Godwin threat and allowing Craig Laden to ally his force with the Imperial City Recapture Army.

Along with the senior members of the Dragon Calvary, Yoran joined the army, becoming the caretaker to all the dragon horses there. Yoran got along quite peacefully with most of the castle and ran into few difficulties. However, Yoran had spent almost all his time in Gordius, leading him to be rather inexperienced when it comes to women. Yoran also had troubles with Haleth gambling on the dragon horse races, once he saw how the riders were improving, he became at ease with it.

After the war ended, Yoran would go to Sauronix Castle to tend to the dragon horses there. It is said that he treats them with great care and earns their respect.
