Quelb, also known as Kelb, is a town in Final Fantasy V, populated by the lycanthropic werewolf race. It is accessible on both Galuf's world and the merged world. The town is home to the Dawn Warrior Kelger Vlondett, and is just north of the Castle of Bal.

History[]

Kelger's house in Quelb.

The history of Quelb prior to Final Fantasy V is unknown. No native werewolves are found on Bartz's world, suggesting that all werewolves were moved to Galuf's world after Planet R was split in two. Werewolves have a small presence outside of the village.

During Final Fantasy V, a werewolf from the village named Tsuze visited Bartz's world after traveling by meteorite to protect the fire crystal.[1] Tsuze recognized Galuf—who failed to remember him due to his amnesia—and helped them escape the fire crystal's explosion, but passed away in the process.[2]

On their way to Drakenvale, Bartz Klauser and his friends passed through Quelb. Reaching the gates of the seemingly deserted town, Galuf Halm Baldesion suggested visiting to Kelger, a Dawn Warrior who had fought Exdeath alongside him 30 years ago. Entering his manor, the party was ambushed by Kelger and some of the townsfolk. Even after realizing the intruders were friends, Kelger challenged Bartz on a one-on-one fight and uses his Lupine Attack, being heavily injured in the process.[3]

Bartz revealed he used a technique taught to him by his father, Dorgann Klauser, who was also a Dawn Warrior. Surprised, Galuf and Kelger discussed this revelation, and the latter allowed the townsfolk to open the gates to Drakenvale so that the party could retrieve the Dragon Grass to heal the remaining wind drake so as to fly into Castle Exdeath.[3] Later, after the other Dawn Warriors had passed, Kelger used the last of his energy to remove the illusion from Castle Exdeath.

Geography[]

Quelb is located north of Bal, in between a valley separating Bal from a vast forest where Drakenvale is located further north. The village has a gate at the very end blocking off the path north through the valley. The valley around the town is present both in Galuf's world and the merged world, though the mountains in the merged world take a different appearance.

Quelb is a fairly sparse town in comparison to human towns seen in both worlds. Only one house, Kelger's house, is seen, along with an inn that serves the town's finest dishes,[1] and a few shops. The town also has a small well for water, and is home to many sheep.

Quests[]

The main quest is to pass through Quelb on the way to Drakenvale. This simply requires entering Quelb's house for a scene, after which the party can proceed.

In the inn there is a wolf who serves a meal to the party, which recovers their HP and MP, and for dessert, he gives out 8 Potions for free. However, each time the meal is served, the number of sheep grazing in the village decreases by one. As there are initially three sheep in the village, the party can only use this free service three times.
