The entrance to Treno.
"I've always wanted to see the marvelous architecture of Treno. I can hardly wait!"

The Dark City of Treno (眠らない街トレノ, Nemuranai Machi Toreno lit. Sleepless Town Treno), also known as Treno; the City of Nobles, is an economically polarized city in the eastern part of the Mist Continent on Gaia in Final Fantasy IX. There is no existent middle class in Treno; instead, all of its inhabitants are either extremely wealthy or extremely poor. The rich nobles live down on the waterfront, while the poor live up in the slums around the city. Treno is known as the Dark City due to the perpetual state of darkness in which it remains.

Treno is visited twice in the storyline of Final Fantasy IX, once in Disc 2 and once in Disc 3, and can be visited at anytime once you have the Hilda Garde III, the Invincible, or a Red Chocobo.



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

In Disc 2, Dagger, along with Steiner and Marcus, are in Treno searching for Supersoft, an item known to cure all forms of petrification, in attempt to cure Blank of his petrification in the Evil Forest. Whilst searching for it in the Synthesis shop they meet Doctor Tot, Garnet's childhood tutor. Doctor Tot then reveals that he has the Supersoft and agrees to give it to Garnet. After visiting Doctor Tot's residence to pick up the Supersoft, he tells Garnet how to get back to Alexandria via Gargan Roo.

In Disc 3, Zidane goes to Treno, via Gargan Roo, to participate in the Tetra Master tournament. Vivi, Eiko, Freya, and Amarant come along too but for different reasons, such as sightseeing or simply having nothing better to do. We see what the other 4 characters do via ATEs. Vivi decides to visit Quan's Dwelling, his early childhood home and the home of his adopted Grandfather. Freya isn't seen in many ATEs, but when she is seen she is talking to Amarant about his past. Amarant wanders around Treno freely despite being wanted there. He tells Freya this is because he was framed by Zidane when he worked as a security guard in Treno, this explains why he has a grudge against Zidane. Eiko discovers Quina, whom the group hadn't seen since they were in Madain Sari, however, shortly afterwards Quina is seen jumping into deep water, apparently looking for food and is assumed to have died by an old man who witnessed the jump, Quina does not re-join the group properly until later on, in Lindblum. Gilgamesh makes an appearance here, he meets Amarant and flees from him, due to his reputation as a bandit. After seeing him talk to Eiko Gilgamesh believes he could hold her hostage in an attempt to get some money from Amarant. However, when he attempts to do so Eiko and Quina reunite and, believing Quina to be Eiko's bodyguard hired by Amarant, Gilgamesh flees yet again.

Once Zidane has finished the Tetra Master tournament, either by winning 3 games or losing 1, he and the others leave Treno and fly to Alexandria on the Hilda Garde II with Regent Cid after hearing of Kuja's attack on the city. After this, all future visits to Treno are optional.

Getting Around the City

The Auction House of Treno.

Fortified on all sides by impenetrable walls, navigating the city means braving the heights of such walls and bridges in the dark of the city's seemingly endless nights, although an alternative is to travel by boat across the water that the bridges cross.
Treno is home to a Card Stadium used for Tetra Master tournaments, Doctor Tot's residence, and an Auction House. It is also one of the locations linked by Gargan Roo.

Queen Stella, the woman collecting Stellazio coins is located in Treno by the synthesis shop. Also, if you throw 10 gil into the fountain by the entrance enough times, not only will "You feel happier...", but also acquire the Gemini Stellazio coin.

Treno also has a unique weapon shop, kept underneath it is a monster, or the weapon shop owner's 'pet'. When you talk to the saleswoman you can choose to fight this monster with a member of your party. If you manage to defeat the monster you receive an item, if you are defeated it does not count as a 'Game over', instead you are returned to the weapon shop and the defeated ally is left with 1HP. Each monster can only be fought once as you don't just beat the monster, you kill it. There are a total of 4 monsters that change at various times throughout the game, if you fail to defeat a monster before the next one appears you cannot fight the old one again. The monsters are a Griffin, which can be fought whilst you are in Treno in Disc 2, a Catoblepas which can be fought when you visit Treno in the storyline of Disc 3, an Amdusias which can be fought once you obtain the Hilda Garde III, and a Behemoth which can be fought in Disc 4.
