I feel like I should explain something. That beating I gave you had a purpose. It's important to make an example of someone from time to time and show the folks here I haven't gone soft. If I don't flex my muscles once in a while, there'd be no end of idiots arguing with me about this and that.
--Strom after he beats you. (3DS version)
Strom (formerly Suifu) is a character in the Alltrades Abbey region in Dragon Quest VII. He's the hard-hitting head honcho of Pilgrim’s Perdition; aided by a Goon and a Stooge, he hands out hazings in the form of brutal beatings to all new arrivals to the town.
In battle, this burly brutish man is armed with two frightening massive metal balls on chains that he flings and flails at foes, causing monstrous damage. He can even dish out a deadly desperate attack, often downing adventurers in a single snack. The brute is dressed in the scariest way he knows how, wearing hobnail boots and spiked metal armour over his shoulder. To raise the intimidation factor even further, he's accompanied by two hideous henchman; one, the Goon, dressed in an almost funny thieves outfit and armed with a heavy sack that he uses conk new comers over the head with. The Stooge carries a malevolent magical lantern that he can lob at foes for cause damage to everyone with a putrid purple fire. Although they're a terrifying team, they always leave their opponents with a single slither of life in them. The battle against Strom and his lackeys is scripted for the party to lose, as they are simply no match for the brute without access to their spells and abilities.
After the party manages to defeat Cardinal Sin and return things as they should be, Strom laments that people have begun to leave Pilgrim's Perdition and move on with their lives, essentially leaving him with no more purpose in the world.
In the original Sony PlayStation version, Suifu was simply a palette swapped version of the recurring Ogre series of the enemies, appearing as a very muscular humanoid with beige-colored skin, a wild mane of red hair and a beard, and wearing a blue pair of briefs with a leather belt, a blue cape around his neck, and blue boots. His overworld sprite was similar to that of a thug or roughneck NPC, but with a blue cape and a red gladiator's helmet that covered his head. When Strom appeared in the 3DS remake, his battle model matched his overworld model.
