Carwen, originally romanized Caerwyn and also Carwyn and Kerwin, is a location in Final Fantasy V. It is a prosperous port town located north of Walse and south of the North Mountain. It is accessible on both Bartz's World and Merged World.

Bartz Klauser and the rest of the Warriors of Light arrive to Carwen coming directly from the Ship Graveyard. There the party picks up rumors of sightings of Lenna's wind drake, Hiryuu, at the Northern Mountains, which prompts them to search for him there.

QuestsEdit

PianoEdit

The party leader can play a piano at the pub. Playing all the pianos in the world acquires the last song, Hero's Rime. This is the second piano the player is likely to encounter, and thus results in the early lessons of finger exercises rather than playing a full song.

EtymologyEdit

In Japan, the original provided romanization for the location was Caerwyn. The name is Welsh, from caer which means "castle" or "fortified city" (roughly equivalent to the old-fashioned meaning of "borough"), and gwyn which means "white" or "blessed". (The g in gwyn is dropped because of lenition in Welsh grammar.) The Japanese form カーウェン Kāwen reflects the anglicized pronunciation [/ˈkɑː(r)wᵻn/] "CAR win", which in turn reflects northern Welsh [/kɑːɨrwᵻn/]. (The southern Welsh pronunciation is [/kairwɪn/], and its anglicized form is [/ˈkaɪə(r)wᵻn/] "KIRE win".)
