Story Edit

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

Gau along with Sabin and Cyan head into the Crescent Mountain Cave to the south in search for Gau's "shiny, shiny treasure" he has been keeping within the mountain. Gau forgot where he put it, and they search the vicinity for it. During their search, Gau pulls several tricks on Sabin (some of which are harmless, but one causes the player to lose some gil), but he eventually finds the "shiny thing" which happens to be the stolen diving helmet from Mobliz, and the three hop into the current of the Serpent Trench.

Etymology Edit

The name refers to the shape of the mountain range. In art and symbolism, a crescent is the shape produced when a circular disk has a segment of another circle removed from its edge so that what remains is a shape enclosed by two circular arcs of different diameters which intersect at two points (usually in such a manner that the enclosed shape does not include the center of the original circle). In astronomy, a crescent is the shape of the lit side of a spherical body (most notably the Moon) that appears to be less than half illuminated by the Sun as seen by the viewer.

The word crescent is derived from the present participle of the Latin verb crescere, "to grow", and was originally applied to the form of the waxing moon.
