The entrance to Conde Petie.
Terra HomingAdded by Terra Homing

Conde Petie (コンデヤ・パタ, Kondeya Pata?) is the settlement of the dwarven race in Final Fantasy IX, located on the Outer Continent. The town doubles as a border gate to a mountain path that leads to Iifa Tree and Madain Sari. A single flat building shaped like a bridge, Conde Petie was built astride two Iifa roots. This location was chosen, according to Darcy Skywatcher, for its proximity to both the mountains and the forests hat the dwarves consider sacred, and for its ample sunlight.

Conde Petie receives few visitors, save for "pyntie-het" traders from the Black Mage Village. To gain entry, visitors must say the dwarves' sacred greeting, "Rally-ho!", preferably with a wide mouth and raised hand. Nuts and berries, some of which are brought by black mage traders, are a staple food source. Boiled owl, seasoned oglop, fried rootbeans, and pumpkin bombs are also popular delicacies.

The symbol of Conde Petie is a Kirkboat, where Father David Heavenguard blesses marriages. Prior to the events of Final Fantasy IX, 99 couples had undergone the ceremony.

When the party first arrives at Conde Petie, Vivi is surprised the dwarves aren't scared of him, and confused as to why they speak to him as if they already know him. When a black mage arrives to trade with the dwarves, Vivi is shocked and tries to approach him, but the black mage flees. Harold Pathknower mentions that if they're looking for the "pyntie-hets", they can find their village in the southeastern forest. Vivi wants to go there and the party leaves.

After visiting the Black Mage Village, the party learns Conde Petie's Sanctuary could lead them to Kuja and decide to return to the dwarven town. Passage to the Sanctuary is only allowed to couples who get married. Garnet agrees to marry Zidane, and Vivi and Quina may either get married as well or sneak past the guards during a ruckus caused by Eiko, a girl who infiltrates the town time to time to steal food. With permission to enter the Sanctuary, the party moves onwards to the Conde Petie Mountain Path.

As with Esto Gaza, neither the town of Conde Petie nor the mountain path are accessible after the party has visited Terra, due to the Iifa roots blocking all entrances.

Upon finding Conde Petie, Zidane mentions that there is still no Mist and comments on the odd shape of the building. Quina runs inside, hoping to find "fine cuisine". When Zidane complains that all Quina thinks about is food, Garnet is quick to reply that all Zidane thinks about is girls.

TriviaEdit

  • The dwarves in Final Fantasy IX say "Rally-Ho", an alternate romanization of the classic dwarven slogan, Lali-ho, from earlier Final Fantasy titles.
  • The village name, Conde Petie, is also the name of Chef le Tonberry's legendary dish in Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon 2.
  • While dwarves are a recurring race in Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy IX is the only game in which they have not lived underground. Also, whereas dwarves in previous games have been associated with living and seeing in the dark, Conde Petie's culture has a strong association with sunlight.
