Gaia is a town from Final Fantasy located on the north-eastern continent of the world. Because of the mountains around it, it is accessible only by airship. There is a spring in Gaia that is home to fairies, many being found and sold to in black markets such as Caravan. Buying one and returning her to the spring will result in obtaining the Oxyale needed to breathe underwater, and thus enter the Sunken Shrine.

Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy Edit

Gaia appears as ruins on the game's world map, at the Mirage Desert region. It is only accessible in the Confessions of the Creator scenario, after clearing the South Lufenia gateway, which is when the Teleport Stone located near it becomes active. A multi-floor gateway can be found inside: the Forsaken Lands Gateway.

Etymology Edit

Gaia or Gaea was the goddess or personification of Earth in ancient Greek religion, one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia was the mother of all: the heavenly gods, the Titans and the Giants were born from her union with Uranus (the sky), while the sea-gods were born from her union with Pontus (the sea). The Greek word "γαῖα" (transliterated as gaia or gaea) is a collateral form of "γῆ" meaning Earth. Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was named Gaea (Terra in more ancient documents). This is alluded to in Final Fantasy IX with the existence of Gaia's twin world.

The mythological name Gaia was revived in 1979 by James Lovelock, whose Gaia hypothesis proposes that living organisms and inorganic material are part of a dynamic system that shapes the Earth's biosphere, and maintains the Earth as a fit environment for life. In some Gaia theory approaches the Earth itself is viewed as an organism with self-regulatory functions. This theory is especially alluded to in the Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within take on Gaia as the planet's soul.
