V

Castle Exdeath, also known as Exdeath's Castle or X-Death's Castle, is the stronghold of the warlock Exdeath in Final Fantasy V. Appearing in the second world, Exdeath's Castle is connected to the mainland by the Big Bridge. The castle is surrounded by forests and a basalt mountain range. Around the castle are four towers that generate a barrier around the castle, preventing entry.

Story Edit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
Castle Exdeath Jail

Bartz, Lenna, and Faris in jail.

Prior to the barrier being activated, Bartz, Lenna, and Faris are captured, and Galuf enters the castle alone to rescue them from Gilgamesh, Exdeath's underling. After they escape, the barrier is activated.

Later, Xezat and the party enter the south-east Barrier Tower via an underwater cave, and Xezat sacrifices himself to destroy it. The barrier is destroyed, allowing the party to later enter the castle and confront Exdeath.

The party confront Exdeath.

When entering the castle for the final showdown, the interior appears like that of a regular castle, but once the party reaches a dead end, Krile discovers the castle's appearance just an illusion. Kelger Vlondett, the last Warrior of Dawn, uses his power to break the illusion, which leads to his death. This sacrifice reveals that Exdeath's Castle actually made out of the corpses of Exdeath's many victims, and this gruesome discovery opens up a path for the party, allowing them to meet Exdeath himself.

Spoilers end here.
