The Library of the Ancients.

The Library of Ancients is a location in Final Fantasy V. It is accessible on both Bartz's World and Merged World. A massive library, it contains countless volumes of books, including the Sealed Tome. Scholars congregate here to share and obtain knowledge. The basement is infested with books that are possessed by monsters. Ifrit resides deep in the basement, and in the past, he was the one who burned the possessed books.



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

Bartz and his fellow Warriors of Light arrive to the Library of the Ancients after the explosion at Karnak. Here, they find that Mid, the grandson of Cid Previa, is missing. Knowing this, they venture into the depths of the Library, which is filled with books possessed by demons. Halfway through the basement, they find Ifrit, a summon who in the past burned the possessed books, and fight him, being rewarded with his power. At the deepest floor of the library, they find Byblos, a demon. After defeating him, they meet with Mid, and they all return to Karnak.

Later, when Exdeath merges the worlds, Bartz, Krile, Faris, and Ghido find the Library, what shocks the turtle. Inside, the Library's scholars have already met with Surgate's scholars and merged the parts of the Sealed Tome. Unfortunately, not much later, Exdeath engulfs the Library with the power of the The Void.
