"Quina, you in darkness. Need some light. World big place. many many foods."

Quale (クエール, Kuēru; Spanish: Quera; German: Quehl) is the leader of the Qu in Qu's Marsh in Final Fantasy IX. S/he is Quina Quen's master.

Quale can first be seen when Zidane helps Quina catch a frog in the Qu's Marsh near Lindblum in Disc 1. Quale comes in and berates Quina for being unable to feed him/herself. They all enter Quale's abode further into the marsh, where Quale asks Zidane to bring Quina along on his journey so that s/he may taste exotic cuisine. It is then up to the player to decide whether to bring Quina along or not.

Once outside, Vivi comments that Quale looks just like his "grandfather", Quan, who had died recently. When he goes inside to ask Quale about his grandpa, the Qu leader does a bad job of pretending that s/he "not know this Quan". It is obvious that there has been some past disagreement that fostered dislike between the two.

If Quan's Dwelling is visited in Disc 3 with Vivi and Quina in the party, a scene will play, in which Quan's spirit appears to praise Quina's ability to use their imaginations, stating that soon he/she will be able to find sustenance without food. Quale then appears and argues with Quan, who is revealed to be Quale's former master. Apparently, the aforementioned disagreement was due to Quale's inability to use his/her imagination when following the way of the Gourmand. After this conversation, Quale decides to approach food differently and rethink his teachings.


  • In the Spanish and Italian Versions of Final Fantasy IX, both Quale and Quina are addressed as females (she, her, etc.) while Quan is addressed as a male

Players can fight Quale when Quina has captured 99 frogs in one of the many Qu's Marshes.
