Y'know, humans, people, homo sapiens sapiens

Humans (人間, Ningen) are a race in the Suikoden series. The majority of characters encountered in the series are humans and every Tenkai Star protagonist to date has been human.


Look, you know what a human looks like.

Humans account for the majority of the world's population. Compared to other races, human lifestyles can vary greatly from one area to the other due to their wide range of politics and cultural beliefs. Due to cultural and climatic conditions, the clothing and housing of humans tend to differ from region to region.

Humans from prestigious families, with high social status and history, usually have a middle or last name.

In comparison to other races, they have a longer average life span than Beavers or Kobolds but a shorter life span than Elves and Dwarves.
