Quan's Dwelling is a location in Final Fantasy IX, located near the city of Treno. It is a cave filled with natural gas fissures and a hot spring. The first opportunity to explore this location is at the start of Disc 2 when Garnet, Steiner, and Marcus arrive in Treno. Garnet will be under the player's control at this time.
It can later be visited by the rest of the party early in Disc 3, when they are visiting Treno for the Card Game Tournament. Zidane will be under the player's control at this time. At the bottom of the cave, there is a spring, which fully restores the active party's HP and MP.
Vivi was raised in the dwelling after being found by Quan, and there are height measure markings on the wall, the last of which reads "Six weeks since I adopted Vivi. Still too small to eat." After Quan's death, Vivi left for Alexandria. He later returns to the cave when the party visits Treno during the Card Game Tournament, although this is purely optional. If Vivi stays in the city, the second round opponent in the tournament will change, and the player has another chance to win the rare Namingway card.
If both Quina and Vivi are in the party, and the player visits Quan's Dwelling after obtaining the Hilda Garde III, a cutscene will play where Quina sees a gigantic pile of food on the stone table. Quina begins eating the food; however, Zidane, standing well out of the way of Quina's frenzy, does not see anything. After asking Quina what s/he is eating, Quina notices there is no food on the table at all. Then, smelling something, Quina runs outside where s/he sees Quan.
After some dialogue, Quale (who was nearby for unknown reasons) and Vivi enter. Vivi is excited to see his grandpa again, while it is revealed that Quan is Quale's master. Quan says a gourmand is more than just somebody who eats everything and is nothing without an imagination, telling Quale s/he has much to learn, while Quina is on the right track. Quan disappears, and Zidane reveals that he still saw nothing. Afterwards, the player can look into the clock to receive a pair of Running Shoes.
If Quan's Dwelling is visited when the player is in control of a blue or gold chocobo and has some Dead Peppers, the chocobo will dive off the ledge, obtaining a chest otherwise impossible to find, holding the Tiger Racket, the most powerful weapon for either Dagger or Eiko.
