I mean, we haven't found a blacksmith yet to keep our weapons in good shape, and won't get one until we're about 95% finished with the game, but not to worry, we've just recruited an old granny from a fishing village who knows a lot of useless information. Watch out, Luca Blight - you may have superior sword skills, an unquenchable thirst for blood, and soldiers who are ready to die fighting for you, but WE've got an old lady sitting in our castle not doing anything.

But there is one I remember for sure Josephine from SV, she had a background that in the end had some meaning since she has some notorious family but the carácter itself when you recruit her its "what's the point of her?"
Been playing through Suikoden 2 again and thought the same! The games really do throw you some right honkin' recruits before what you'd consider top priority skills for fighting a war.
They should of made Taki like Yoda. Mad badass fighting granny putting Luca in his place, and then returning to the castle later and making really annoying broken English statements. "Bath maker you will find, two doors down he will be."
Hellion was a bit Yoda like (she even kinda looks like him) she was a powerful sorceress, she gives us the blinking mirror, and at the end she becomes the court magician for Toran Republic. Taki doesn't even display any skills with runes. She's a totally mundane character. She moves into our castle, sits at a table all the way through the war, then goes home to her daughter.

Having communal bath rooms is a bit more civilized and gives our characters a bit of leisurely time outside of battles.
Oleg was a dumb idea for a character. He invents the world's first camera and captures live footage of Illuya being destroyed, and his device never gets used again? and yet we still get newspapers being printed throughout S4 and other games taking place years later. I guess it's some sort of in game gag for the series where a piece of technology gets discovered or invented and never heard of again (like how each game has a different guy inventing the elevator)
But for entertainment's sake, they could have made Oleg into a character that provides a movie gallery of all the game's cut scenes.

Adlai's elevator is working differently than that of the others, it's manpowered, whereas Sergei, iirc, has something to do with what they call alchemy in the Suikoden world.
