Final Fantasy IVEdit

Cecil Harvey, Rosa Joanna Farrell, Edward Chris von Muir and Rydia arrive at the castle with Yang, warning the king that Baron is seeking Fabul's Wind Crystal. The king does not believe them, as he does not trust the Dark Knight Cecil. Yang and Edward convince the king Cecil is trustworthy, and the party helps Yang defend the castle against Baron.

The Battle of Fabul begins with bombing from the Red Wings, and the monks retreat. Many of the monks are defeated by the monsters, which now make up much of the Baronian army. Cecil, Edward and Yang are the only ones left standing, and retreat to the Crystal Room. Kain Highwind enters, and Cecil asks for his assistance. Kain is now working for Golbez, and duels Cecil. Kain wins and Golbez shows up. Rosa and Rydia come to the rescue, but Golbez wounds Yang and Edward, and takes Rosa as a hostage, after which Kain steals the Crystal.

Cecil, Rydia, Edward and Yang ponder for a way to get Rosa back. Cecil decides they should go see Cid Pollendina in Baron, who will give them an airship. Yang asks the King of Fabul if they can borrow a sailing ship to take them to Baron. The king agrees, and gives Cecil the Deathbringer, which instantly kills any creature Cecil strikes with it, although the king notes it cannot work on true evil.

Later, Cecil returns to Fabul after visiting the Sylph Cave in the Underworld and speak to Yang's wife, Sheila. She will give Cecil a frying pan to wake Yang up. The king eventually abdicates the throne to Yang and becomes a Duke Consort.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit

While Yang and others are away at Damcyan celebrating its reconstruction, Sheila goes into labor. A pair of monks cross Mt. Hobs to inform Yang, and he returns to Fabul with Cecil and Rosa. Sheila gives birth to a baby girl, and Yang asks Cecil to be her godfather and name her. Cecil names the baby Ursula.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

FFIV TAY Fabul Throne

Fabul's Throne on The After Years.

During Yang's tale, Yang is training with three Monks but refuses to train Ursula, believing her status as a princess makes her unfitting for combat. While Yang speaks to Fabul's chancellor about Baron and rumors they are again seeking the Crystals, Ursula flees the castle and heads to Mt. Hobs to inspect the impact crater of a shooting star she saw fall to the west of the mountains.

They investigate the star and begin their journey back when they witness the Red Wings flying towards Fabul. The group returns in time to defend the kingdom from attack. Ursula and Yang battle Kain in the Crystal Room to protect the Crystal, but Kain leaps over them and seizes it before escaping. Yang prepares a ship and with the help of his trainee monks, he and Ursula set out to Baron.

In The Crystals chapter, after the party finds Yang and Ursula being cared for in Kaipo, Sheila will give them a Frying Pan and a Ladle with which to revive them.

QuestsEdit

KnifeEdit

Returning to Fabul talking to Sheila afte Yang has been woken with the frying pan, allows Cecil to get a Knife, the most powerful throwing weapon for Edge. If thrown, it will deal 9999 damage regardless of the enemy's defenses, although it can still miss the untransformed Zeromus.

TriviaEdit

Theguardswhosaytffiv

The two guards.

  • In the SNES version, after Golbez's siege on Fabul, the two guards on Floor 2 right before the King's Room both say nothing but "T".
  • In Final Fantasy IX, Cid Fabool IX, the regent of Lindblum, is an allusion to Fabul. Lindblum, similar to Fabul, is a giant castle with the town within it.
  • Though no longer considered canon, the Settei Shiryuu Hen guide book gives background details on Final Fantasy IVs world that feature several allusions to Final Fantasy II, including the name of the Dark Knight who left the Deathbringer in Fabul being named Leonhart.
