I have no knowledge up until now, that this hidden bios/comment exist. 
Shiro(username) posted a thread in the Suikoden III Message Board and let us
know about it. I decided to make this FAQ because not all people have access
to DVD ROM Drive and a Hex Editor. If you have DVD ROM, play the Suikoden III
in your computer and open Hex Editor. Open file SLUS_203.87. 
The information on a character itself is very short, most of them contain only
a sentence; however due to the fact that there are requests from people over 
the Suikoden III Board to make this FAQ.
Enough of babling, let's just cut to the case.

I listed the characters based on alphabetical orders for easy finding.
I noticed that some of them are in Kidd investigation or other descriptions;
however I feel the best thing to do is to listed all the information that I
found.
