Name: Beast Rune
Classification: One of the 27 True Runes
Owner: L'Renouille Palace, The Blight Family
One of the 27 True Runes which symbolizes the beast-like passion for life as well as feral fury and brutality. The rune was originally in the possession of Harmonia, but was given to the Blight Family as a gift for their service in quelling Harmonia's internal rebellion. However, this rune actually was not a gift, the rune moved to L'Renouille by its own will, and Harmonia simply made up an excuse to cover up the fact that they lost control of onf of the True Runes.

Since then, the Beast Rune has been attached to the Blight Family's palace in L'Renouille. The Blight Family has viewed this rune more as an ornamental object, oblivious to its hidden power - until the rise of Prince Luca Blight. Luca Blight found out the hidden power of the Beast Rune and how to unleash its incarnations. In order to wreak havoc upon Dunan, he sacrificed thousands of Muse citizens to the Beast Rune, giving it enough power to materialize itself as an incarnation. However, Jowy Blight used his Black Sword Rune to keep the Beast Rune at bay after the death of Luca Blight. At the end of the war, the Beast Rune's incrnation was unleashed and defeated by the Allied Army, striking the Beast Rune into dormancy.

Name: Bits
Classification: Currency
Owner: N/A
The currency used in the US version of Suikoden 1. The name was translated into Potch in the US version of Suikoden 2. However, the Japanese version for all Suikoden games have always used "Potch" as currenct. Why they translated it into "bits" in the US version of Suikoden 1? That is because "Potch" can be a word ending to emphasize small quantities. Thus, "bits" is not a bad translation per se, but inappropriate considering the context.
