"Home to Cardinal Delacroix, liege lord of Lionel, this castle once belonged to the Holy Ydoran Empire."
—Description

Lionel Castle is a location from Final Fantasy Tactics. Located in Southern Ivalice, it is the stronghold of Cardinal Delacroix of the corrupt Church of Glabados. It is also the site of Saint Ajora Glabados' capture and of Ramza Beoulve's battle with Cúchulainn.

Ramza vs. Delacroix

Ramza Beoulve arrives at Lionel Castle with Princess Ovelia, Agrias Oaks, and Mustadio Bunansa to seek his assistance. Delacroix pretends to offer aid and agrees to shelter Ovelia, while Ramza and Mustadio go to the Clockwork City of Goug to search for Mustadio's father. They are unaware that Delacroix is really the Cúchulainn, the Impure of the Lucavi demons. He has Ovelia captured, but Agrias escapes. Meanwhile, Delacroix's hired mercenary Ludovich Baert acquires a fake of the Taurus Stone, incurring Delacroix's anger. After assigning Goffard Gaffgarion to get rid of Ramza, Delacroix kills Baert.

Ramza attempts to rescue Ovelia from Lionel Castle, unaware that she has already been taken away by Delita Heiral. At the gate, he is attacked by Gaffgarion but defeats and kills him. He makes his way inside to confront the Cardinal, who transforms into Cúchulainn and attacks Ramza. Ramza wins the ensuing battle, killing the demon and landing Ramza an accusation of heresy by the Church of Glabados.

Items of interest None
Additional info The gate barring Ramza from the rest of the party can be opened by a switch on Ramza's side.

This is the first multi-battle zone, so be sure to save a separate file. Ramza will start the battle on the other side of a gate from the rest of the party, who will be forced to take on the Knights and Summoner whilst Ramza fights with Gaffgarion. The best strategy is to put two stronger characters and two Black chocobos in second group. Two human characters should ride chocobos in first turn and with them fly to help Ramza in second turn. When the turn order gets to Ramza, units should stop riding chocobos. When you defeated Gaffgarion, recover all units, open the gate and have more fair battle 5 vs 6.
