The Falcon Rune made its first appearance in Suikoden on the hand of Valeria. While the rune tends to be given to female fencers, Belcoot also bore a Falcon Rune in Suikoden V. The attack prompted by using the rune consists of multiple quick thrust attacks on a single target without the user becoming unbalanced. These runes were given out by Roundier Haia upon completion of his fencing school, though how Belcoot received a Falcon Rune is still a mystery.
The Falcon Rune inflicts always pretty reliable damage with little drawbacks only in Suikoden II and V. Most players could hardly ignore it equipped by Valeria in the Gate Run Wars on your travels across the Dwarf Pass and on your attempt to hunt down Kwanda. It strikes with 300% attack power and can be used every round, which is why Valeria is a great addition to any mission thereafter. Suikoden II had this rune nerved a bit, but it celebrates a great comeback with Kika later. - Arya, Celes
