Recruitment: Tir is the character that you play as, and as such will be your very first Star of Destiny
|Weapon Name||Wolf Fang Staff||Dragon Fang Staff||Heavenly Fang Staff|
Recruitment: Any time after defeating Luca Blight head to Banner Village and speak to Koh. Listen to his plan and agree, then speak to Gremio/Ellie. Agree to save Koh from the mountain bandits. It is to be noted that neither Tir or Gremio are official stars in this title, and as such will not migrate to your headquarters. If you dismiss them from your party, you will need to speak to Tir in Gregminster to have him join your party again.
Note: You may only recruit Tir if you have loaded a completed saved game from Suikoden where the save was made at the point before entering Gregminster after assaulting it, and all 108 Stars of Destiny have been recruited. This means that you would have had to have revived Gremio on your Suikoden save. If this was not fulfilled, you will never see Tir in Suikoden II.
Tir McDohl is the main characater of Suikoden which the player can name. The name Tir is actually a name that was dubbed to him in a literature piece that then became the name that he is often referred to.
Born to a wealthy family within the Scarlet Moon Empire, Tir was raised by a household of staff that remain loyal to his father Teo McDohl. Until the beginning of Suikoden, Tir lived in his father's home in Gregminster with his mentor Gremio, friend Ted, and household staff Cleo and Pahn who all watched over him.
One late afternoon, Teo McDohl is summoned before Emperor Barbarossa, and is requested to head to the northern border of Jowstone to assist in a war front in an effort to keep the neighbouring state away from the Scarlet Moon Empire's borders. As vassel to the emperor, he accepts the request and as such then gives room for his son to step in and assist the capital of Gregminster in a more useful capacity. From the onset, both the emperor and his court magician Lady Windy comment on how remarkable Tir's features are. Tir McDohl is assigned to Commander Kraze as his superior and is then governed to report to the man for any simple tasks or deliveries that may be required to be made on behalf of the emperor. Tir McDohl accepts this post and is then taken to meet the man he will follow the orders of. A brief introduction proves that the man he is to report to is a little cocky, and it is commented by Tir's father that he's unsure as to why his son was assigned to a weakling. None-the-less, Tir is advised to report in the very next morning, and with the promise of being able to do something more, he heads home with his father to rest up for the following day.
