Angelgard is a peculiarly shaped island off the coast of Galdin Quay. It is a small barren island that has two peaks that could be taken to resemble wings. The island has but a prison and nine towering swords stuck on the ground around it. The player can't directly explore the island unless via a glitch.

Noctis after 10 years

Noctis awakes in Angelgard.

After his ten-year slumber inside the Crystal, Noctis Lucis Caelum awakens at Angelgard. The sky is black with not even stars showing, and he meets the dog Umbra that has a message for him from his friends to meet them at Hammerhead. Noctis discovers his father's boat, which he steers to Galdin Quay.

The presence of the colossal swords suggests a connection to Bahamut, the astral god whom Noctis met inside the Crystal. Bahamut was the one who had Noctis sleep in wait for his ascension to the throne as the True King, and thus it would make sense for Noctis to return to the world through a location related to Bahamut. The island's shape, if taken to represent wings, could also allude to Bahamut.

Spoilers end here.


Eye for IslandsEdit


Angelgard from Galdin Quay.

"Eye for Islands" is a quest for Vyv at Lestallum that becomes available after completing "The Perfect Landscape". Vyv requests a photo of the island taken from Galdin Quay. Completing the quest yields 1,500 EXP and 7,500 gil.



Within the world of Eos, the island may have been named for its shape, perhaps seen resembling angel's wings. -Gard is a Germanic suffix often associated with placenames.

An angel is a non-physical entity or spirit found in various religions and mythologies. In Abrahamic religions and Zoroastrianism, angels are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between God or Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence. Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God's tasks. The term "angel" has also been expanded to various notions of spirits found in many other religious traditions. In art, angels are often depicted with bird-like wings on their back, a halo, robes and various forms of glowing light.

Gard is Norwegian for "enclosure". It is also Kashubian for "city".
