Garif Warrior

Jahara is a location in the land of Ivalice in Final Fantasy XII. It is the home to the remote tribe of the garif. It is not a technologically advanced city like Rabanastre or Bhujerba, but a land whose people live close to nature and subsist by hunting.

Sage Knowledge[]

A garif village in Bancour. Here, a chieftain elder watches of the old ways, and so administers the tribe. Though many other villages dot the area, there is little direct communication between them. The garif have worshiped magicite since ancient times, and tribal legends tend much wisdom concerning the Stones. When the time is right, the elders teach these lesson to the youth of the village, and, on rare occasion, to visitors from other lands. Abhorring machinery and iron, much of the garif material culture is based on wood and stone and other unmanufactured things. Their houses made of grass and strips of leather allow a breeze to pass through, and are uniquely suited to the hot, arid climate. On the hill overlooking the village is a meeting lodge, warmed always by a bonfire. Near the lodge are the elders' huts, and below the hill is a clearing ringed by a healer's hut, and the tents of craftsmen, as well as a place to take care of the livestock, called "nanna" in the garif tongue. Dalmasca has for many years honored the ways of the garif, and so kept up a peaceful trade and relations with this isolated people.


Jahara is located in the Bancour region, across the banks of the Sogoht River. It is only accessible by going through the Ozmone Plain.

The original version has no treasure in Jahara. However, they do appear in the Zodiac versions.

A chest containing a Pheasant Netsuke can be found in the town. It will always appear, but does not respawn. The other chest contains generic treasures.

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

Since the garif shun technology, the village has not changed much over the years. Seven centuries ago, the Occuria, knowing the garif worshiped magicite, gave them some nethicite. However, even the wisest garif knew not how to use the stones, and, as such, the Occuria took the nethicite and gave it to someone more knowledgeable, King Raithwall, the Dynast King. This is one of the many stories passed down in Jahara.

Ashe hears that the Dawn Shard has lost its power.

Ashe and Vaan on the Jahara bridge.

During Final Fantasy XII Princess Ashe wants to fight the Empire with a piece of deifacted nethicite, the Dawn Shard. Even though she has witnessed the stone's amazing strength, by having seen it destroy Dreadnought Leviathan and the entire Archadian 8th Fleet, she has no idea how to harness the stone's power. Fran tells her that the garif down at Jahara might know, as magicite lore is part of their culture.

The party arrives at Jahara and are granted entrance as a garif warrior has seen them crossing the Ozmone Plain on foot. They talk to the Great-chief Uball-Ka, but to Ashe's disappointment the Great-chief tells her the garif don't know how to use the stones, and what worse, that the Dawn Shard has lost its power as the Mist trapped inside the stone was drained when it unleashed its power on the Leviathan, rendering it useless as a weapon.

The party is met by Larsa Solidor of the ruling family of Archades who has come looking for Ashe, as he has a plan to prevent the war looming above the nations. Ashe is reluctant to follow with Larsa's plan, and during the night she takes a walk on the village proper. She is met by a ghostly vision of her late husband, Lord Rasler. Vaan sees Ashe wandering about the village and tells her that he, too, can see the vision.

Vaan and Ashe have a chat on the village bridge. Vaan tells Ashe he is through running away from his problems, and from now on will try and actually do something and not just stand aside.

The next morning Ashe promises to accompany Larsa to Mt Bur-Omisace to meet the Gran Kiltias.

Spoilers end here.


Jaya Stick[]

Upon arriving at Jahara, the player must talk to garif until they receive a Jaya Stick from high-chief Zayalu in Lull of the Land area. Talking to Supinelu in the west exit and choosing the first option twice allows the party to see the elder. The Jaya Stick is taken from the inventory and given to Supinelu. However, the player can sell the Jaya Stick for 500 gil and still be let through. If the player gives Jaya Stick to Supinelu they will eventually get Bowgun (original)/Recurve Crossbow (Zodiac versions) and Onion Bolts. If they sold it, they will obtain Killer Bow and Onion Arrows instead.

The player must speak to the garif next to her, then Shurry, then talk to the garif again and tell him the bird comes from the Giza Plains. The Great-Chief will then give a gift to Shurry. The player must speak to the garif next to Shurry again to get the reward: Platinum Dagger.

Behind the scenes[]

When going through the Ozmone Plain for Jahara, the player might spot a garif picking on a chocobo. This is actually Supinelu, training alone in the plain: depending on if he falls or survives by the time the party reaches the village, the player gets different dialogue from him once in Jahara.



The name "Jahara" maybe derive from real world locations, such as "Sahara", a great desert in North Africa, or "Al Jahra", an agricultural city in Kuwait.
