The land flourishes from the Earth Crystal's boons. Intriguing...

Troia (トロイアのまち, Toroia no machi?), also known as Toroia, is a city in Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. Troia is a primarily matriarchal society, where eight female Epopts operate as the town leaders. Women fill other primarily "male" roles as well, such as being the guards, soldiers, doctors, and shopkeepers of the castle and its village. A peaceful nation, it has not been known to participate in a war, although it appears to have a disciplined military. The kingdom is home to the Earth Crystal, and for its blessings is a land of lush forests and flowing rivers.

Cecil, Tellah, Yang, and Cid arrive in Troia to capture the Earth Crystal to trade it to Golbez in exchange for Rosa. However, they discover the Dark Elf has already stolen it. The party approaches Troia's Epopts, who agree to let them borrow the Crystal if they can recapture it from the Dark Elf. They visit Edward in the castle infirmary, and he gives them the Whisperweed to help them find the Crystal, and the group searches for the Dark Elf in the Lodestone Cavern.

After defeating the Dark Elf, Cecil and his friends return to Troia and are contacted by Kain, who is ready to trade Rosa for the Crystal at the Tower of Zot. By giving up the Crystal without a fight, Troia is spared from sharing the fate of Mysidia, Damcyan and Fabul, who all come under attack by Baron's Red Wings.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

Approximately a month prior to the beginning of the game, one of the eight Epopts took ill. Unable to govern properly with one fewer member, the Epopts sent word to Mysidia to send a mage to train a new Epopt. The Elder of Mysidia sent Palom, who arrives to discover his pupil is Leonora. After Leonora completes her training in Black Magic at the Tower of Trials, the kingdom is attacked by the Red Wings, under the command of the Mysterious Girl. Leonora is entrusted with the Earth Crystal, and both Palom and Leonora are forced to flee through the Troia Castle Waterway, then to the Lodestone Cavern, to escape the Red Wings.

In Edge's Tale, Izayoi is dispatched to Troia to observe the nation, and is undercover as an Epopt Trainee before investigating the Tower of Trials and returning to Eblan.

In the game's ending, Leonora is appointed as the eighth Epopt, but she gives her post up to travel to Mysidia and study to become a Sage, feeling there are more worthy candidates for the position than her.

FFIV - Unreachable Woman in Troia

The unreachable woman in the red dress.

  • There is an oddity that goes back to the Super Nintendo era which is still present in every version of Final Fantasy IV, with the exception of the 3D remakes. There is no way to speak with the woman in the red dress found on the second floor of the pub because the player is blocked by the fireplace and the old man. This unreachable NPC has text dialogue. The dialogue on the Super Nintendo is: "Do you have enough GPs? It's gonna be a bit too expensive from here on!" This woman doesn't appear in the Nintendo DS version.
  • In Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, there is a trade material called "Troian Fabric".
  • Harley's diary mentions she received her education and training in Troia when she was young.
