Aire on Liberte

Liberte (リベルテ, Riberute?) is a location in Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. This settlement is divided between the port and the town by shallow shoals that becomes deluged by a whirlpool at night.


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

When the Heroes of Light return to Horne and find its inhabitants petrified, they are met by representatives from the Baneful Magick Investigation Unit of Liberte, who offer to take the heroes to their town for their safety. Jusqua and Aire accept, thus parting ways from Brandt and Yunita.

Liberte Port.

Although Jusqua is content with doing nothing, Aire thirsts for adventure and treasure, and after exploring the town and learning that the young Apollo's parents have been kidnapped by the local pirates, she takes her reluctant companion along to save him. Aire frees a fairy of Arbor, Lilibelle, and becomes a friend only Lilibelle is visible to. Aire hears of the mysterious whirlpool that appears in town at night, and once again, drags Jusqua with her in search of treasure. At the end of it all, Jusqua is fed up with traveling with Aire and leaves. Aire opens the treasure and is sent back to Liberte as a cat.

Unable to speak to humans, Aire takes Lilibelle's suggestion to visit the Queen of Arbor for a solution, and goes solo. After Aire has departed Jusqua realizes he must help his feline companion, and after being met by a cat he mistakes for Aire, Jusqua travels north to Urbeth.

After being sent a decade into the past, the party travels to Liberte and meets a young Pione, who is struggling on his design for the annual Glassworks Fair in Liberte. The party travels to the Animal Burrow and finds Lilibelle trapped in a spider web. The party frees her and takes her to Liberte where the fairy inspires Pione to work on his next masterpiece for the fair. The next day the party learns that Captain Drake and his pirates had stolen the artworks and kidnapped Pione and Lilibelle.

Within the Pirate Hideout they find the possessed Captain Drake attempting to kill Lilibelle, but the party interrupts just in time. The party ventures to the bottom level of the hideout and obtains the Rusty Compass. After party returns to the museum in Liberte, they use the compass and awaken the legendary Cetus. The party takes the Cetus to sea and face Leviathan. After defeating Leviathan, the city of Liberte is finally at peace.
