Freya: "The tempest subsides... By the gods!"
Zidane: "C'mon, let's go while we can!"
Freya: "Indeed. Let us press on."
Quina: "Must hurry. Must find yummy-yummies!"
—Freya, Zidane and Quina speak upon reaching the trunk.

Cleyra's Trunk is an enormous tree that houses the settlement of Cleyra. It is protected from outsiders by a magical sandstorm. Its paths are a winding, sandy maze that require various switches and obstacles to overcome to reach the top.

Story Edit

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

IX Zidane and his party make their way to Cleyra to protect it from Queen Brahne and her Alexandrian Army who have destroyed Burmecia. Many Burmecians made their way to Cleyra as refugees, including the King of Burmecia. To reach Cleyra, they must navigate their way through the maze of tree roots and quicksand.

After the Ritual Dance is performed and the jewel atop the harp shatters, the storm protecting Cleyra dissipates, and the party descends the tree trunk, finding only a couple of soldiers. They stop at the bridge, where Freya realizes such a small legion could not constitute a proper attack. Puck arrives to confirm what they were starting to suspect: the soldiers at the trunk were just a decoy.

Spoilers end here.

Locations Edit

Cleyra's Trunk and in turn, Cleyra, lies east of Burmecia. Before the events at Burmecia the trunk is inaccessible as the sandstorm is too powerful, but after the initial battle with Beatrix the player is free to enter.

Tree Roots Edit

Marked by what appears to be the top of a monster's skull as a makeshift bridge of sorts, it is here the party enter, struggling against the sandstorm, which Freya notes is beginning to subside.

Tree Trunk Edit

Inside the tree, the paths become sandy, and falling sand often serves to block the party's progress, the flow of which sometimes needs to be stopped in order to proceed or obtain treasure. The trunk areas provides the first opportunity for the player to learn the valuable Blue Magic spell Auto-Life by having Quina eat a Carrion Worm.

Kupo! Strange people came into town
and destroyed the entire place!

I don’t wanna see any more pointy hats!

Monev should be careful, too!
Maybe you should move elsewhere...
