The Monastery Vaults (地下書庫, Chika Shoko?), also known as Underground Book Storage, is part of the Orbonne Monastery in Final Fantasy Tactics.

The monastery is said to have an underground library filled with many great literary works, such has historical writings and scriptures including works in foreign languages. The literary works are strewn in piles of disarray on the floors, and ancient scrolls and lithographs are piled among the printed works. Priests are restricted in going to the third underground floor. In the deepest area of the vault the floor covers a tunnel entrance, and a magickal rune is inscribed on the floor.

Five battles are fought in the Monastery Vaults between Ramza Beoulve and the forces of the Church of Glabados. The first three of the five battles are fought in Chapter Three, the remaining two are fought as part of the final sequence of battles leading up to the final boss; it is also the point of no return.

Story Edit

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

The battle for the Virgo Stone Edit

Following the declaration of Ramza as a heretic by the church, Ramza attempts to recover the Virgo auracite from the monastery, where Alma believes it to be located. A Knights Templar named Isilud Tengille arrives first, also seeking the stone.

When the monastery's librarian, Simon, refuses to help Isilud he is mortally wounded. Isilud proceeds into the Monastery Vaults to search for the stone and Ramza and Alma arrive to find Simon dying. Ramza leaves the auracites he had collected with Alma, and rushes downstairs to confront Isilud.

Isilud finds the Virgo Stone, but is confronted by Ramza. After being defeated Isilud teleports back up to the exit, where Wiegraf Folles, another Templar, has captured Alma. As Ramza runs back up the stairs, Wiegraf has Isilud take Alma away, while he fights Ramza. Ramza prevails, but is unable to prevent Isilud from making off with his sister. As Wiegraf lay dying, the Aries Stone, which Wiegraf had been given by the other Knights Templar, reacts.

A voice offers Wiegraf great power, which he accepts, becoming one with the Lucavi demon Belias. Ramza draws his sword, prepared to fight, but Belias is not looking to fight him and teleports away. After Wiegraf's escape, Simon gives Ramza the Scriptures of Germonique before dying.

Link to Mullonde Edit

As the Lucavi plot unfolds, it comes to the attention of Folmarv Tengille—the leader of the Knights Templar and the host for Lucavi demon Hashmal—that Orbonne Monastery is the site of the portal to Necrohol of Mullonde. He takes the captured Alma there to cross over into Mullonde and resurrect his master Ultima.

Folmarv is joined by two others in the service of the Lucavi: Loffrey and Cletienne. The trio descends to the lowest floor of the Underground Book Storage where they find the portal. Loffrey reads an incantation to allow Folmarv and Cletienne pass through, but Ramza arrives moments later. Ramza defeats Loffrey, but as Loffrey lay dying, he recites the incantation, and draws both himself and Ramza into the portal.

On the other side, Loffrey seals the portal before succumbing. Ramza defeats Cletienne and fights his way to the Airship Graveyard where Folmarv is attempting the ritual to resurrect Ultima by using Alma as a host body. Folmarv transforms into Hashmal, and although Ramza prevails, the demon completes to resurrection by offering himself as a sacrifice. Ramza triumphs over Ultima, and the ensuing explosion destroys the Airship Graveyard.
