Hugo, The Flame Champion

Postby FinalLegion » Tue Oct 18, 2011 10:54 pm

I realize that it is canon that Hugo was the one to become the Flame Champion. My question is... does anyone know if this was decided while the game was being developed OR if it was made canon after S3 was released?

It was made "canon" when the manga was written, since it was the idea of its author.

well, it may have been made canon by the manga, there's a definite encouragement of it in the game. There's a lot of extra scenes and such that Hugo gets as flame champion. Geddoe gets many of them as well, while Chris doesn't get all that much all. To me at least, Hugo was always meant to be the default Flame Champion, whilst Geddoe and Chris were there to provide the player with some diversity. Hugo also has the most to lose in Suikoden 3 of the three of them. Although Chris and Geddoe cared about the conflict, neither of them would really have been effected have as much by not getting involved.

I felt that Hugo was the default FC as well, and that the other two were there for people who were tired of the hero always being a teenage boy. That and the others offered obvious replay value. His story as FC was much more developed than the others'. I agree about Geddoe's being a close second, but it just never made sense to me for him to switch Runes.

It's really the only logical choice canon or not. Geddoe already has the lightning rune before the game starts. Chris inherits the water rune from her father. Hugo has no connection to a true rune previously and his mother is a skilled fire magic user. It makes no sense to "Trade" hugo someone elses rightfull rune just so they could be the flame champion.
