Rabanastre's concept art

The Royal City of Rabanastre (王都ラバナスタ Ōto Rabanasuta) is a city in Ivalice, the world of Final Fantasy XII. It is the home city of Vaan, the hume orphan and main character of the game, as well as Penelo. Rabanastre is the capital city of Dalmasca, so Princess Ashe would also normally make residence here. As it is also here Vaan takes residence, it becomes the city most frequently visited by the player, and could be considered a "home base".

Rabanastre is the first city seen when starting the game (in an FMV), but actual gameplay begins in Nalbina Fortress in Dalmasca that borders the Kingdom of Nabradia, which is under attack by Archadian forces. Here, the player takes control of Reks, Vaan's elder brother.

At the end of the game, the Archadian Empire left the city, and Rabanastre was ruled by Queen Ashe.

Sage Knowledge

For the Sage Knowledge on Rabanastre, you may also see Sage Knowledge piece 39.

"Capital of Old Dalmasca, and before that, many other kingdoms stretching back into the storied history of the Galtean Peninsula. Rule by the Dalmascan royal family lasted for several hundred years before the city's fall to the Archadian Empire two years past. Now an Imperial territory. The story of the city's people is the story of three cultures, those of Valendia, Ordalia, and Kerwon, who bore trade goods along the many well-frequented routes leading to her welcoming gates. The town proper of Rabanastre is divided into four sections by the cardinal directions of the compass. The east and west are merchant districts, the streets lined with shops and stalls of every description. In the north, the streets widen into a large piazza facing the palace, and to the South can be found three gates leading beyond the city walls to the Dalmasca desert and Giza Plains. The aerodrome can be found in the western outskirts of town, surrounded by numerous privately operated airship docks. In the northwestern part of town stands a splendid cathedral built in the Galtean style, the bell of which, when rung, sounds through every hearth and home in the city."

Rabanastre Main Level
Rabanastre Lowtown


Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Rabanastre is the location immediately visited after the loss of Vaan's new airship at the Glabados Ruins. A mysterious derelict arrives at the outskirts of the city soon after, leading into the trip to Lemurés. After two Main Storyline missions, Rabanastre can never be visited by the party again.

Main Missions

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

Mission 03: Eve of Adventure

"Treasure is all well and good for sky pirates, but it means little enough without an airship. And so Vaan and Penelo resume life as usual...until the unusual happens."
—In-game description

Vaan, Filo, and Kytes make a midnight run for the derelict. While passing through the square, they encounter several strange monsters, the Yarhi. This mission serves as an explanation of the Melee-Ranged-Flying unit type relationship.


Mission 04: The Coveted Derelict

"A derelict airship lands outside the gates of Rabanastre-a temptation no self-respecting sky pirate can resist. After a brief skirmish at the city's edge, Vaan plots a way past the watch."
—In-game description

At the Rabanastre Southgate, the trio cataches sight of the derelict and must cross a small section of plains to reach it. This mission serves as a lesson in using abilities and Gambits.
