The Regency of Lindblum

Lindblum (リンドブルム, Rindoburumu) is a regency in Final Fantasy IX. It shares a border with both Alexandria and Burmecia. It is the largest city in the game and is divided into 4 different areas: the Theater District, the Industrial District, the Business District, and the Grand Castle. People transport from district to district via the use of Air Cabs. The regency itself is protected by the Lindblum Airfleet, and lives under the rule of Regent Cid Fabool IX.

During Queen Brahne's war, the Alexandria fleet bombed Lindblum, and the army of Black Mages attacked the city consecutively. Brahne herself witnessed the decimation of the city from the Red Rose. Eventually Atomos, the Eidolon stolen from Princess Garnet is used to finish off the city, completely destroying the Industrial District.

Nonetheless, Minister Artania's and Regent Cid's determination saw to it that the city was rebuilt. Under the constant labor of Lindblum's people, the city was reconstructed.

Lindblum is the largest community in the world of Final Fantasy IX, and also the most technologically advanced. Recently, groundbreaking technological discoveries in steam power have allowed Lindblum's engineers to forge Mist-free transportation vehicles such as Air Cabs and even steam-fueled airships.

Story

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

Zidane and his group, after narrowly escaping from Alexandria, arrive at Lindblum and, thanks to Garnet's relations with the Lindblum royalty, are welcomed inside the castle where they learn that Regent Cid had become an Oglop.

His mission accomplished, Zidane heads back into town while Vivi and Steiner explore the city districts. Wandering into a bar, Zidane reunites with Freya Crescent, an old friend he hadn't seen in three years.

After one day in the town Zidane returns to the castle to check up on Garnet who was becoming depressed over her inability to act upon the rising problems facing the kingdoms of Alexandria and Lindblum.

In an effort to cheer her up Zidane promised her a date if he won the Festival of the Hunt. The hunt, this year featuring Fangs, Mus, Trick Sparrows and a Zaghnol, was performed by Vivi, Zidane, Freya and various NPC, among whose was Lani; each starting in the Business District, the Theater District and the Industrial District respectively. Other contests were the Strange Gourmand and Genero.
The festival's award ceremony was interrupted however as a messenger arrived from Burmecia informing the Regent of the country being under attack by a Black Mage Army. The messenger died soon after, succumbing to his wounds.

Immediately setting out to assist the Burmecians Zidane, along with Freya and Vivi, traveled by foot through the Dragon's Gate to Gizamaluke's Grotto. Garnet, without the blessing of her teammates but none-the-less with Steiner following behind, traveled back to Alexandria to talk her mother out of attacking the other countries.

However both groups failed in their quests and after the destruction of both Burmecia and Cleyra, Queen Brahne turned her sights on Lindblum castle, hammering it with a barrage from her seafaring fleet hidden beneath the mist she teleported armies of Black Mages into the city before finally ending the battle with summoning Atomos's vortex winds to rip the castle apart. Not long after, having witnessed the attack, Zidane, Garnet, and Vivi return to the stricken city to regroup and plan their counter attack. They then devised a plan to defeat Kuja, who had been found out as Brahne's weapon supplier, in the Outer Continent; from there Lindblum would attack Brahne after Kuja's defeat. The three embarked immediately.

Getting Around the City

Lindblum is situated atop a mountain peak far above the Mist covered plains. Fortified from every side by the castle's grand walls and towers the city is currently, due to the Mist, only safely accessibly via Airship through the Falcon's Gate which stands prominently as a Falcon emblemed door against the castle's outer wall. The city is divided into four districts.

The Theater District Air Cab station.

Moving from one district to another requires the service of an air taxi. The Air Cab moves upon a rail that spans across Lindblum.

Overlooking the Falcon Gate from a lofty height the Theater District is home to Lindblum's famous theater. This has been the venue for many famous plays, including Moogle Wannabe 2 starring Lowell Bridges. It is also where the Aspiring Artist Michael's workshop is located. The theater district is also the home of Tantalus, Baku's band of thieves. Time is marked by a bell that sounds at the end of each play that is performed in the theater.

The Industrial District is where the engineers work and live. Upon exiting the Air Cab station a giant statue of Cid VIII can be viewed, built to honor the father of Cid IX. One of the most exciting projects going on in the Industrial District is the development of the steam engine, which works without the use of Mist. The Industrial District's pub, run by the bar keeper Bobo, is where Zidane reunites with his old friend, the Burmecian Dragoon; Freya Crescent. The district was destroyed during the Siege of Lindblum by Alexandrian forces and the Eidolon Atomos.

The Business District's main street

The Business District is one of the largest commercial areas in Gaia. Amongst its many shops is the synthesis shop. You can buy almost anything you want here, with a vast array of shops including Alice's Item Shop, a weapon shop, Polom's Action Figures, Pepe's Milk Shop, Ivan's Fish Stack, Milla's Oil Shop and Grandma Pickle's corner stand which sells Gysahl Pickles, a Lindblum delicacy. Along with shops, it's also home to Lindblum's inn, which holds a Bobo Bird Statue that has been handed down from generation to generation between innkeepers. Down the main street is the Hunter's Gate, the exit that leads to Pinnacle Rocks, on the other end is a church currently undergoing a restoration make-over. Opposite the Inn is where the district's air cab station is located.

The Lindblum Grand Castle

Lindblum Castle

Regarded as the forth district Lindblum Grand Castle is an impressive structure, whose walls surround the entire city. It's home to Regent Cid, the ruler of Lindblum. It has a large airship dock, which houses the Lindblum's airforce. The castle is located in central Lindblum and consists of three levels.

The Top Floor holds the royal quarters, where Regent Cid resides, and the open-air observatory is also accessible from this floor. From here, the outlying lands can be viewed through a large telescope.
The Middle Floor is where the guest rooms and indoor airship docks are located and where air cabs in to Lindblum's other districts can be boarded. A statue of Cid Fabool I is also situated here.
The Base Level consists of an land exit (Dragon's Gate) and a sea port (Serpent's Gate), both disused due to the presence of mist and the advent of airship travel. The three levels are connected by a lift.

Trivia

  • On the map in the opening video and on the sign in the bottom left of the Rest Stop screen in Summit Station, the city is incorrectly spelled as "Lindbulm".
  • Just outside of the transport station at the Industrial District, there is a statue of Cid 8 who built the first Mist-powered airship in 1762. 9 years later, he lead a battle. 9 years after that, he died. It is engraved by Cid 9. 9 is a recurring theme of this particular Final Fantasy.
  • One of the rooms from the Online Lobby in Dissidia Final Fantasy is named Lindblum.
