Tzen in the World of Balance (iOS/Android/PC).

Tzen (ツェン, Tsen?) is a optional town in Final Fantasy VI located at the north end of the Southern Continent. It was once a monarchy before it was invaded by the Gestahlian Empire.


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

When the Empire invaded Tzen, they killed off their royal family. Young men of appropriate age were conscripted and taken away to serve in the military, leaving the town populated by women, children, and the elderly. Imperial troops roam the streets making some reluctant to venture outside.

In the World of Ruin, Celes comes to Tzen from Albrook, following rumors of a man searching for his friends. As she arrives at the town, Kefka attacks Tzen with the Light of Judgment. The mansion on the north end of town begins to collapse, and Celes finds Sabin holding up the structure. Celes races inside the building to find a child trapped in the basement, and the two narrowly escape the home before it crumbles. Sabin joins Celes, the discovery of his survival filling her with hope that the other members of the group are still alive.

Spoilers end here.



Once the player has completed the Magitek Research Facility, in the trees behind the town's Relic shop is a thief who stole a piece of magicite from the facility, containing the esper Seraph. In the World of Balance he charges three thousand gil for it, but in the World of Ruin he sells it to the player for only ten gil.


With the exception of Seraph, the following treasures are found in the collapsing mansion in the World of Ruin:
