Lilin (リーリン, Rīrin) is a minor character in Suikoden IV. Lilin is the second youngest of the five mermaid sisters.


I want to find my older sisters. I want them to get rid of the bad guys so we can hurry up and look for them.

—  Lilin
Ugh, people get so grumpy when you try to murder their child.

Lilin was the fourth of the five mermaid sisters who were separated and forced into hiding when Cray Trading Company began its mermaid-hunting activities in the Island Nations region. She was a rare breed among mermaids for her willingness to engage with humans despite her understandable fear of them.

Following this, she attempted to find her sisters again. She would first meet the future leader of the Headquarters Ship on the Deserted Island, helping him and his friends to get off the island. She would later encounter them again in the waters off of Obel, being hunted by Cray's underlings. After being rescued, she would join the crew of the ship, eventually opening an accessory shop on aboard the vessel.

Following the Island Liberation War, reunited with her four sisters, Lilin would return to the Deserted Island with her siblings for a time before setting out once again to find other mermaids who had gone missing in the wake of the mermaid hunts.



Keen You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Lilin All right, I'll talk.
Keen Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?
Lilin I don't really know. They're all good people.
Keen Then, would you tell me what you think of the Hero?
Lilin He is a very good person.
Keen Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Lilin I want to find my older sisters. I want to them to get rid of the bad guys so we can hurry up and look for them.
Lilin Is that all? I was looking forward to it because they said water would rain down. I will go back now.
Lilin ...!! That scared me!
