Julian Silverberg is the legendary strategist who helped Kranach Rugner become independent from Harmonia, creating the Scarlet Moon Empire more than 200 years ago.
SARSadmin's Comments
The man who started the legend.

Leon Silverberg is the oldest member of the Silverberg family. He is well known throughout the world as a "genius strategist," and was involved in many wars, including the Succession War, the Toran Liberation Wars, and the Dunan Unification War. He is the uncle of Mathiu and Odessa and took care of them after the death of their parents (Leon's brother). He lives by his strategic maxim of "ending war as fast as possible with the fewest casualties." To achive that he will use whatever means necessary, and to him, it doesn't matter which side wins. He has a son called George, and two grandsons, Caesar and Albert, who are both able strategists. Leon currently resides in a "small village" in the Toran Republic (IS 475).

SARSadmin's Comments
One of the most misunderstood character in the series.

Mathiu Silverberg is the brother of Odessa and nephew of Leon, and is a well-known strategist. He was a member of the Scarlet Moon military since his youth, but left the army after the Kalekka Incident, where he realized that war inevitably causes innocents to suffer. However, he became the Army Strategist for the Toran Liberation Army following the death of Odessa, and led the army to victory--although he lost his life in the process.

SARSadmin's Comments
One of the most over-rated strategist in the series.

Odessa Silverberg is the sister of Mathiu and niece to Leon. She was the founder of the Toran Liberation Army after becoming the leader of the revolutionary movement started by her ex-fiance, Achilles. During her actions within the Liberation Army, she was killed by the Imperial Army. However, she planned far ahead for the Liberation Army, which allowed them to win the war.

SARSadmin's Comments
She is without a doubt, a chatacter with one of the best stats in the series. Too bad we only get to use her a short time.

????? Silverberg is the unknown younger brother of Mathiu and Odessa. No one knows where he is, but it is certain that he is still alive.

SARSadmin's Comments
It seems like we will never see him, either. A lot of people thought he would appear in Suikoden 3, but instead we got Leon's grandsons.

Shu is not a Silverberg, but is a student of the Silverberg school of strategy. He was a student of Mathiu at his school in Seika, and showed great talent in military startegy. However, he was expelled due to using his knowledge for personal gain. However, during the Dunan Unification War, he was recruited by the Allied Forces, and brought them victory. After the war Shu helped the Dunan Republic rebuild itself, but disappeared from politics to return to his merchant life. However, when Harmonia attacked Higheast during the Higheast Rebellion, Shu helped Teresa Wisemail fight against Harmonia.

SARSadmin's Comments
Another over-hyped strategist who relies on dumb-luck instead of real strategy and foresight.

Apple is also a non-Silverberg, but a Silverberg at heart. She was also a student of Mathiu, and a surrogate sister to Shu. She has a deep respect for Mathiu, and helped him during the Toran Liberation Wars. She also served as Amry Strategist for Viktor's mercenary before the Dunan Unification War became serious. After the fall of Muse, she successfully recruited Shu for the Allied Forces, and helped Shu as Vice-Strategist. After the end of the Dunan Unification War, she went to Harmonia and got married. However, her husband cheated on her, and thus she got a divorce. Following that she became a tutor for Caesar, and started traveling the world with him as a history scholar. In one of her travels she became involved with the Firebringer incident, and used her years of experience to guide the Firebringer to victory.

SARSadmin's Comments
The eternal vice-strategist, she certainly did improve between Suikoden 2 and 3.

George Silverberg is Leon Silverberg's son. Nothing is known about him other than the fact that he is the father of Caesar and Albert.

SARSadmin's Comments
A person only mentioned in a publication (Genso Shinsyo Vol 12), so we will assuredly never see or hear about him anymore, or at least in any depth.

Albert Silverberg is the older son of George Silverberg. He showed promise as a strategist since his youth, and studied extensively throughout his adolesence, agreeing very much with his grandfather's streategic maxim. He studied in Harmonia with high marks on all subjects, and stayed there after graduation, spending much time in the library. It was in one of these libraries that Albert met Luc. Albert agreed with Luc to help him with his conquest to a certain point as long as it benefits him. Using the secret he learned from Leon, he summoned Yuber to gain his help. Later on he earns a position within the Harmonian military, and after the Firebringer incident in the Grasslands, it is said he became an Army Strategist in some nation.

Caesar Silverberg is the younger son of George Silverberg. He never studied seriously, but after a severe disagreement with Albert over Mathiu Silverberg's maxim, he took his studies seriously. He has been traveling the world with Apple, and has met Albert at Crystal Valley as well. Hearing that Albert is in the Grasslands, he also arrives when the Firebringer was just about to form. He quickly convinced the various factions to cooperate and coordinated stretegies to defeat the Destroyers. After successfully defeating them, Caesar continued his travels with Apple.
