"We're gonna play all day today!"
—Cuore, to Edge

Cuore (クオレ Kuore) is a minor character in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. She is one of the mass-produced Maenads, beings who can summon Eidolons and have powers of mind control.


A single Maenad who seems to be very young is found on one of the lowest floors in the Depths of the True Moon. It responds to Rydia and says it awaits her commands, much to Rydia's confusion. Rydia then asks the Maenad to wait for her there. After the final battle, the Creator chases the party through every bottom level of the True Moon, who the other Maenads defend the party from. The party then reunite with the single Maenad on the floor where she was waiting for Rydia. The Maenads tell them to watch the child, and also say that it is what remains of them. They then defeat the Creator with the Meteor spell. The party escape with the Maenad to the Lunar Whale, and return to their planet.

In Mist, the Maenad is now living a new life and is called Cuore. She has trouble breaking the habit of talking like the other Maenads. Leviathan and Asura appear, and remark how Cuore looks like Rydia when she was a child. Rydia then introduces Cuore to them as her parents. Shortly after, Edge arrives, much to Cuore's excitement. She asks him to play with her, and promises Edge not to use any magic.


Cuore is the Italian word for "heart", in the sense of the cardiac muscle as well as a person's inner mind. In The After Years, this might reference what the Maenads said about Cuore being what remains of them, before they sacrificed themselves to stop the Creator.
