--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I seem to recall that dog-people/kobolds somewhere don't like water, but I can't recall if they were the Suikoden variety or it's from some other random place. I know Gengen loved wells, but I can't seem to remember anything about water or swimming or anything along those lines. Anyone remember anything about this in Suikoden? Or am I going to have to rack my brain to figure out where I got this idea?

I think its a case with the Cats of Nay but i'm not sure about the Dog Kobolds. Cats don't like water and Dogs doggy paddle in water so the dislike would be understandable.

I think it's just the Nay-Kobolds that dislike water, after all they are cat-like people, and as far as I know cats are not huge fans of water. I think I remember Chiepo getting seasick at one point in time.

The only Kobolds that i think have an intense hatred of water are the Nay Kobolds, since they had a hot spring on their island but hated it.

I don't remember anything ever having been mentioned about Kobolds' disposition toward water.

Basically, it's the nay kobalds that dont like water, not the normal ones.

Yup. IRL cats somehow dislike water.
It's not all about knowledge, but it helps.

Message from Gobocha:(Suikoden II dropbox)

Captain Gengen taught me how to swim today. He can stay underwater for 15 minutes. The Fishermen was so suprised he jumped in too!

Seems like not only do Kobolds like to swim, they are better at it then humans.

It's kind of silly that the Nay Kobolds would dislike water despite being native to the Island Nations and being found no where else in the Suikoden world. I guess their hatred of water prevent them from leaving there island or traveling very far.

There are some cats that love water. The Turkish Van comes to mind. I'm guessing that the Nay Kobold equivalent must be responsible for building their bathhouse lol
