Castle Tycoon is a prosperous kingdom from Final Fantasy V and its anime sequel, Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals. It is the country that holds the Wind Crystal, kept in the Wind Shrine, and the last living wind drake. The kingdom of Walse is located to the east, while the kingdom of Karnak is located to its west.

The castle of Tycoon is accessible in both Bartz's World and the Merged World, and the country is surrounded by forests and mountains. Tycoon is thus somewhat isolated from the exterior world, although it is connected to Walse via the Torna Canal.


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

King Tycoon leaving to the Wind Shrine.

King Alexander Highwind Tycoon and his wife had two daughters, Sarisa Scherwil Tycoon and Lenna Charlotte Tycoon. When Sarisa was five, she was lost at sea and presumed dead, and Lenna became the heir to the throne. Years later, the Queen was struck with a fatal illness and chose not to be treated, as the only cure would require the death of their wind drake, Hiryu. Lenna protested and attempted to cut out its tongue herself, but she was talked out of it by Jenica and her father.

When the power of wind disappears from the world, King Tycoon departs to investigate and leaves Lenna to guard the castle, but she follows him after he fails to return. A meteor crashes near the castle and, at the crash site, Bartz Klauser saves Lenna from goblins and finds the amnesiac Galuf. They travel together as Light Warriors after they are joined by a pirate named Faris Scherwiz.

Princess Sarisa and Princess Lenna returned to Tycoon.

After the party meets the wind drake at the North Mountain, they return to Tycoon, where Lenna rejects the Chancellor's request that she stay permanently. During the night, she tells Faris of her suspicion that she is the long-lost Sarisa, but Faris refuses to acknowledge it. After reuniting with King Tycoon and witnessing his sacrifice at the Ronka Ruins, however, Faris comes out with it, and later on she and Lenna discuss their past, but agree to conceal it from the Chancellor as he would demand that Faris remain in Tycoon.

After the worlds merge, the party is thrown to the fields just outside the castle. Although the kingdom is mourning King Tycoon's death, they are quick to celebrate the return of Princess Sarisa. Bartz and Krile leave the ceremony, and later on, Faris "escapes" her royal duties as well. Exdeath uses the power of the Void to engulf Tycoon, but the wind drake escapes with Lenna. Sucked into the Void, Tycoon appears as a black hole and serves as the party's entrance to the Interdimensional Rift.

Tycoon and its people are restored after Exdeath has been defeated, without any apparent harm to them. Lenna and Faris return and rule jointly for a short while, but before the year is over, Faris absconds the throne to return to her pirate crew, leaving Lenna the sole sovereign.
