Why are you not happy? You have returned to the place of your birth.
—Mikoto

Bran Bal is the village where the Genomes live on the planet of Terra in Final Fantasy IX. This is the birthplace of all Genomes and is continually bathed in blue light from Gaia's crystal. Bran Bal is an unrevisitable location.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
When you received the gift of life in Bran Bal, Kuja could not bear it. He could not bear to see a Genome with more power than his own; he felt threatened... He dropped you onto Gaia, the world he would destroy.
—Garland to Zidane

Before Zidane and company enter Bran Bal, Garnet spots the eye on the underside of the Invincible, recalls the destruction of her hometown, and faints. The remaining party follows Mikoto, a Genome girl who led them to Bran Bal, inside, and searches for a curative to revive Garnet.

Genomes

Underground laboratory where the Genomes are kept.

They are shocked to discover the Terran village is comprised of Genomes, Zidane's brethren and vessels for Terran souls. Eiko locates Mikoto, and is told she will wait for Zidane in an "underground laboratory". The rest of the party comforts Garnet, who has recovered from her vision. Eiko finds the group and relays the information to Zidane, who runs off to find Mikoto.

In Bran Bal's basements Zidane finds Genomes held in tanks and Mikoto reveals the truth to him: Zidane is a special Genome intended to assist his creator, Garland, the ruler of Terra, in absorbing Gaia into Terra. Garland had created Zidane as his Angel of Death. Confused, Zidane wanders into the Pandemonium where he meets Garland in person.

Kuja, Garland's original "Angel of Death", goes berserk and destroys Terra, and what becomes of Bran Bal is unknown. Zidane's party saves the town's Genomes and escapes through a portal back to Gaia with the Genomes on-board the Invincible.

Spoilers end here.
