A Suikoden V fanart consisting of my favourite four of the large pool of swordmen and swordwomen available in Suikoden V.
From front to back, (warning might contain spoilers)
Richard, of the Lindwurm Mercenary Brigade, the smiley face "blademaster" of the mercenary group. Behind his smiling face, his skills with the sword are only rival by few in the Falena Civil War.
Georg Prime, once among the six great generals of the Scarlet Moon Empire, he was invited by Ferid to served as a Queen's Knight in Falena. Even among knights, only the late Ferid could fought him without any use of runes.
Belcoot, the gladiatorial slave turn swordmaster. A student of the renowned Kanakan, Falcon style of swordplay under the famous Roundier Haia. He's sense of honour and duty is above many, he was most remember for reaching the finals of the Sacred Games before lossing out after getting drugged.
Hazuki, a sword prodigy from a distanced land, she duel and lost to Belcoot sometime before the Falena Civil War. Unable to let the defeat rest, she honed her skills to a greater height. During the Falena Civil War she join the Prince's Loyalist Army, and soon prove that her skills can even be a match for Georg Prime or Richard.
