i don't think it would fit to be Tir's son... how old his son is gonna be, and we know just about a year from s2, Tir staring to get close with Kasumi.. i prefer he would be brother or maybe son from Teo and Sonya? maybe they have a son in secret, but kept away from gregminster so no one would discover their affair..
Maybe he sent to Harmonia to study. He's very possibly have a first class citizenship easily with his parents help, since Teo / Sonya (if you consider he's son of Teo and Sonya) is well known as generals in Toran...
Toran takes no part during Higheast Rebellion, so i think he may be on Harmonia's side at first, but switch to the Dunan's side seeing the un-human actions from the Bishop, he may leaks some important strategy or weakness since he knows a lot about Harmonia.. he may be the turning point for Dunan Army..
Drake wrote:I was thinking in a name for the game maybe Suikoden :The War of 7 Army's or something like that
In the plot the "hero" will unite all generals :
Viktor leading the Mercenary's,
Ridley the Kobolts,
Jowy Some Highland's,
Riou his old Troops,
Miloktov Matilda Knights,
Futch Dragon Knights
Luc some Mages.
A lot came out my mind when you mention those armies...
Suikoden mostly related to number of 6, like 6 scarlet generals and 6 region of Toran (S1), 6 states of city-states (s2), 6 grassland clan and 6 zexen knights (s3), 6 group of razril knights and 6 major habitat island (s4), also 6 queens knights (s5).. so i think it's better to stick to the number of 6... XD
I would prefer the 6 with Mercenaries, Kobolds, Wingers, Highlanders, States Army, Matilda Knights.
Futch alone would be okay, but for the armies of dragon knights i think it would be too much.. I would like Futch still in his journey with Humphrey and in progress raise Blight... and after this war, Milia sees Futch's heroic actions and he welcomed back to the Dragon Fortress, and Milia trusting her daughter Sharon under Futch eyes.. since she can't handle sharon's curiousity and she keeps running away to a new places... So, Milia thinks Futch will be fit because Futch is the only Dragon Knights who has the most experience outside the Fortress. (This will give you some background how Futch, Blight, and Sharon crossing around the continent, and finally meet with Hugo in S3) - that's why i prefer to take out the Dragon Knight from the list..
Mages... their own power is already massive individually, and if you put an army of mages, that would be overpowered i guess... so... i prefer to have a couple of mages to helps rather than an entire armies of mages... remember the battle between Crowley and Mazus causes the badlands entirely uninhabitable.. it's jus two of them... the armies of mages could destroy more than half of northern continents.. lol.
it would be nice if to see Viktor mercenary with Gilbert, face to face with Ace... ace was originally one of Gilbert's unit, but under the mind rune control, ace switch side to Harmonian' side.. after the wars ends, he doesn't have the face to return back to Gilbert's mercenary so he apply to the SFDF and become one of Geddoe's group. (would be nice to link the stories). At first, gilbert will leads these mercenaries (Because Viktor and Flik on their journey to save Edge's village from vampire attacks), and the situation getting worse because the mind rune effect and lots of soldiers change to the other side.. (this is when Viktor and Flik hear the situation about the invading Harmonian army to Dunan, and he hand over the Zodiac Sword to Edge, and they return to help Dunan since they know the enemy is human, not vampires..) another background on edge in S3.. After Viktor and Flik came back to Dunan and take control the mercenaries army, they boost the morale since the Dunan and Toran Republic know well they both are also Heroes..
About the Wingers, you can make some background of how Landis ends alone in Kuput Forest. Maybe Landis is one who also get under controlled by the Mind Rune, and the Harmonian interested with the Races, so Landis is taken to Harmonia for further research... maybe they see a potential from the wingers and they want to make their current armies able to fly. After the war, the hostage was released but Landis is missing and lost to Kuput Forest.
States Army, which you mentioned as Riou's old armies... Firstly leads by Hauser.. but they can't hold the power of the massive Harmonian armies.. Jess (or someone, but i think Jess is the most fit for these plot) will run searching for Shu, asking for helps... But Shu denied, he only tells "If you want to win the war, you need someone who can unify everyone and someone who can boosted the morale.. someone like Riou", after that, he start going to the north to search Riou, Nanami and Jowy (since he also got the information from Shu that the 3 of them on journey to the north)
Highlanders, i think every Highland generals died after S2, so this would be a great space to fill many new characters... maybe a newborn general after L'Renouille rebuilt... many can explore... Jowy maybe part here, since his return with Riou, the current Highland leaders, (i'm thinking he/she is admire Jowy for some reasons) got a very much experience from Jowy himself.. (you can explore so much in Jowy and Highland history during the S2, how Jowy joins the highland, take over Jhee's army, captured greenhill, killing Luca, marry Jillia, become a King, force Riou to surrender, etc)
Kobolds and Matilda, not many idea in my mind.. for now, i just imagine Ridley and Miklotov's successor leads the kobolds and the matildas in general. To many differences would not good too, right? XD
Hope my ideas can be useful for your project ...
