An ancient tortoise known to the beavers as "Boss," Genoh enjoys the company of the elderly, and doesn't like them to be disrespected. He joins the Prince's army at the request of an elderly member in his army. He is extremely intelligent, and bears a unique rune of interest to Levi.

Other then the elderly, Genoh also enjoys the company of other monsters. He convinces Byakuren to stay and help the Prince because he can speak her language. He wants to be friends with the snake, but she seems less interested in that. - Matt620 (article), Basel (image)

Gameplay Information for Suikoden V

How to Recruit: After restoring Lordlake, find Genoh at the waterfall area in Waterfall Basin(where Richard is/was training). To do this ...

1. You need to have spoken to a beaver who mentions "The Boss" at the Beaver Lodge Inn, and talk to the Beaver Clan Chief, Fuwalafuwalu until he mentions "The Boss" as well. You can speak with Fuwalafuwalu when he's in your HQ as well (usually is except when storyline events are happening).

2. Take Alhazred, Levi, Wabon or Galleon to Waterfall Basin, but the old person must be at 95% of Prince's Level (which generally translates to 1 level below, possibly 2).

* If the old person does not meet the level requirement, Genoh will think you disrespect old people and always have them sit in your castle! Simply come back when you meet the requirement.

* If you bring Jeane or Zerase instead, Genoh will come out sensing an old person but will feel mistaken because they look young!
