Keen (キーン, Kīn) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV. Keen was an assassin hired to take out Sigurd.


Are there any who are sinful? Oh, lost ones, come to the confession room.

—  Keen

Keen was an assassin hired to kill Sigurd due to his desertion from the Middleport fleet. He was said to feel a joy in judging and punishing people. He was convinced to temporarily stay his hand by the hero and joined the force in order to keep an eye on his target.

He would construct a confessional on the Headquarters Ship during the Island Liberation War and judge members of the navy based on their confessions. He would eventually tire of judging people, however, and following the war would retire to Middleport without executing his contract on Sigurd.



Speak to Keen in Middleport with Sigurd in your party. Then speak to Keen in Middleport without Sigurd in your party. He will join in exchange for 10,000 potch. If you refuse, he will drop his price to a more reasonable 9,999 potch.
