[the player and his party enter the library at Qlon Temple, and find a male librarian (brown hair, mustache, thick glasses, red robe) looking through one of the bookshelves]
HUGO: That's funny. Where could it be?
[he turns and speaks with the player]
HUGO: Say brothers, have you seen the War Scroll anywhere? I'm so embarrassed, being the librarian. If you see it, please let me know. I'll repay you.
[the player eventually recovers the War Scroll and returns to the librarian, as "Delivered War Scroll!" appears on screen]
HUGO: That's it. That's the War Scroll I was looking for. Thank God it's been found. I must repay you with something. Let me see, are you the Liberation Army? I see. OK, I've decided. I'll join up. I'm Hugo the Librarian.
["Hugo joins!" appears on screen]



A librarian and scholar who worked and studied at Qlon Temple in Lorimar, Hugo was responsible for the upkeep and organization of ancient scrolls and texts held by the temple. He agreed to join the Toran Liberation Army after Tir helped him retrieve the rare War Scroll from deep within a cavern located by the temple itself.

Following the conclusion of the Liberation War, Hugo became a member of the Toran Republic government, being appointed the fledgling nation's first Chief Justice.



Beginning with this game, every Suikoden to date has used an information source in-game to help the player with many of the not-so-obvious tricks such as recruitment, True Rune lore, Rare Finds, and recruitment of certain Stars may not otherwise be able to obtain.

To best use and appreciate the Old Books in the original Suikoden game, you need to recruit yourself a decent librarian. In this game, that character would be Hugo (Chisui Star). Hugo can be found in the game facilitating study at the Qlon Temple. But, you can find many of the Old Books before you recruit him, so make sure that when you obtain one you keep it in storage with Rock until you can deliver them to Hugo.

To recruit Hugo, you need to find what's called a "War Scroll". There is only one in the game, and luckily for you, it's right close and handy to where Hugo is. It can be found in the depths of the caves behind Qlon, where you are forced to journey anyways for story purposes. When you find it, simply revisit Hugo and he will decide to join up with your army.

There are a total of eight (8) Old Books in this game. Less you'll find, than the sequels it has thus far spawned. Many of these books are quite easy to find, and hard to miss, but I realize that sometimes inventory room is hard to plan, and sometimes you just may not find the right chest or certain hiding place of the book itself.

Old Book Volume 1
This book is found within a chest at Pannu Yakuta Castle. It is concealed in the one of the chests which is laying in wait on the upper floor of the fortress. Simply open the chest to retrieve this Old Book.

Old Book Volume 2
The reason this edition may be hard to find, is because it is carefully concealed away within the depths of the Qlon Caves, behind Qlon Temple. If you've ventured inside to any great length of time, you probably are aware of the frustration that can sometimes be found within. Especially, when you're playing the game for the first time. Anyways, the book is found within a chest and is found before reaching the Star Dragon Sword.

Old Book Volume 3
This book in particular, may be the one which is easiest to find or miss, depending on how you look at things. It is concealed away from sight behind where Hugo is standing at the Qlon Temple. If you walk up to the bookshelf on the left side of the room, and press the (X) button on your controller to search, you should be able to find it right away.

Old Book Volume 4
Much like Volume #3, this book can be obtained by searching a bookshelf in the proper location. The place you want to look for it, is at the Dragon Knight's Fortress, in Joshua's room, it is in the right hand side bookshelf. Simply walk up to it and press the (X) button to search for it again and it's yours for the taking.

Old Book Volume 5
This book is found a few moments before actually reaching the Dragon Knight's Fortress. If you look carefully for chests within the Dragon Den Cave, you can find this volume waiting for you tucked away within the rocks.

Old Book Volume 6
When you get to the point in the game where you need to infiltrate the Soniere Prison, you can find this particular Book on the 1st Floor of the garrison, corner room, in a typical and familiar chest. You can't really miss this one if you're keeping your eyes open for loot.

Old Book Volume 7
You obtain this Book quite late in the game really, at the Northern Checkpoint leading to Moravia Castle. You should be able to spot it straight-away as it's in a chest as you pass through the checkpoint on foot.

Old Book Volume 8
Found within a chest in Kalekka, this is one of the more often missed Books in the set. Once you enter the ghost town, look for the sign designating what used to be the Bar or Tavern. There is a chest in this building which contains the Old Book, safe away from the Monsters reach.

Old Book Volume 1: "The 27 True Runes: Their Creation"
"In the beginning...there was "Darkness". "Darkness" lived for eons in a rift in time. Suffering in solitude for so long, "Darkness" finally dropped a "Tear". Two brothers were born of "Tear". "Sword" and "Shield". "Sword" said he could cut anything to pieces. "Shield" swore he could protect anything. And so, the two went to battle. The battle lasted seven days and seven nights. "Sword" cut apart "Shield", and "Shield" broke "Sword" into pieces.

Fragments of "Sword" fell and became the sky. Fragments of "Shield" fell and became the earth. Sparks from the battle became the stars. The 27 jewels that adorned "Sword" and "Shield" became the "27 True Runes," and the World went into motion.

Old Book Volume 2: "Ancient Teachings"
At certain times, the runes can give men immense powers. The power they provide is magic. Each rune provides four magical powers. But, the great ancient magician Crowley, found a method of surpassing teachings. If two souls are united, two runes are united, and their ultimate power is unleashed, a power greater than the sum of the parts is generated. The union of souls means that two runemasters apply their magic almost at the same time.

The union of runes refers to harmony. In other words, Fire and Earth, and Wind, and Water, Water and Lightning, Lightning and Fire are harmonious. Ultimate power means the release of the maximum runic magic. When three of these powers are combined, the greatest of magical powers is unleashed.

Old Book Volume 3: "Strategy of War"
War begins with the understanding of the enemy's methonds. A soldier is stronger than an arrow. An arrow is stronger than magic. Magic is stronger than a soldier. As a result, knowing the enemy's methods are a natural advantage. To know an enemy's hand, it is necessary to utilize Ninja Power. An enemy's methods always follows a pattern. Knowing the pattern is a shortcut to victory. When the enemy is without a magician, attack in full force.

Betrayal is most effective when you are few and the enemy is many. When the enemy is reduced to a few, use arrows. When your numbers are many, soldiers and arrows are effective. When you are few in number, magic is effective. The only way to increase your number is to recruit.

Old Book Volume 4: "The Knights of the Dragon's Den"
Joshua Levenheit, Commander of the Knights of the Dragon's Den, keeps the Dragon Rune. From a very early age, the children of the Dragon Knights are brought up in the Palace of the Dragon Knights. Once a year, they participate in the Bonding Ritual. Only those who succeed in bonding with a dragon, become a Dragon Knight.

If a child fails to bond before the age of six, he will never become a Dragon Knight. The bond between a dragon and his knight is strong. A dragon lives longer than a human, but should a Dragon Knight die, his dragon, out of sorrow, will take its own life.

On the other hand, if a dragon dies first, its master loses his rights and privileges, and must leave the Knights of the Dragon's Den.

Old Book Volume 5: "Craftsmen's Profiles"
Mace Master blacksmith. Of stubborn temperament, but very kind to his apprentices. Tesla, Scrivener of Antei. Competent. Gen Simple-minded shipbuilder of Teien. Templeton Mapmaker. Perfectionist who appears whenever changes occur. Kimberly Ostensibly a stampmaker. She is in fact. Sergei. Unsuccessful inventor. Said to be in Kaku. Antonio. Excellent cook living in Seika.

Old Book Volume 6: "Black List"
The following list, compiled by the Imperial Guard, describes suspicious characters who may have evil intent against the Empire: Clive Appears to be on the trail of somebody with the intention of extracting revenge. Occasionally sighted at an inn in Rikon.

Kreutz Follower of the former Emperor Geil Rugner. Long incognito, but recently discovered to be hiding out with the Knights of the Dragon's Den. Anji Pirate of Lake Toran.

Old Book Volume 8: "The Kalekka Tragedy"
Border disputes between the Empire and the City-State have been going on for many years. The so-called "Kalekka Incident" took place against this tense, ugly background. Taking advantage of the civil strife within the Empire, the City-State overran the northern part of the Empire all the way to Kalekka, which they occupied. After pacifying the Empire, Barbarosa's forces headed to confront the invaders.

As the City-State's forces began to retreat, the Imperial Army entered Kalekka. What they found was a burnt-out city whose residents wiped out. Leon, let his forces know of the appalling devestation of Kalekka. Despite their exhaustion after the long march north, the forces were infuriated by the news and, with renewed vigor, succedded in forcing back the City-State Army.
