Dali (ダリの村, Dari no Mura?) is a small village near the geographical center of the Mist Continent, in the world of Gaia in Final Fantasy IX. It is located in the territory of Alexandria, near South Gate and above the Mist.
Dali was primarily a farming community, but after Queen Brahne began manufacturing black mages, the villagers abandoned farming in favor of the more profitable black mage production. The children and elders are responsible for running the town and keeping the secret.
Zidane, Steiner, Garnet, and Vivi arrive in Dali to rest and find a way to travel to Lindblum. They stay the night at the inn, but the innkeeper notices Vivi, and how he is similar in appearance to the black mages being produced.
Dali is a small village and most areas can be accessed from the Village Road. Underneath the village is an underground factory, a linear cavern system, which can be entered only once in the game from the inside of the Windmill. (more...)
Concept art of Zidane Tribal's Trance form in Final Fantasy IX by Hideo Minaba. Trance is the game's Limit Break system, a Trance gauge filling up as they are damaged. When the gauge is filled the user physically transforms in manner and their unique skills are enhanced. For Zidane, his Skills become Dyne abilities, powerful attacks of pure energy. It is explained in-game that Trance is achieved when one experiences a surge of powerful emotions, and thus some plot events cause party members to enter Trance automatically.
As revealed in the Final Fantasy IX Ultimania, Trance was the reason that Garland intended for Zidane to replace Kuja. Kuja was created at his current age and never underwent the emotional maturity that the baby Zidane would experience as he grew, and thus he cannot enter Trance like Zidane can. Near the end of the game Kuja bypasses this inability by absorbing Gaian souls from the Invincible, and the greedy and power-hungry soul of Queen Brahne provides the emotional surge Kuja needs to enter a Trance of his own.
