The Ship Graveyard is a location in Final Fantasy V composed of derelict ships, shipwrecks and flotsam. It is located northwest of Carwen, and is accessible on Bartz's world. A nest of undead creatures presides here, turned undead by Siren, who seeks the souls of wayward sailors.

History[]

Many ships have met a grisly fate on the seas and wound up in the reefs near Carwen.

Bartz Klauser and his friends arrived after Syldra, Faris Scherwiz's pet and the one controlling the pirates' ship, was sucked into a maelstrom. They made their way through several undead enemies, and along the way, Faris unwittingly revealed to the group she was female, and had hid her identity out of not wanting to be the only woman on a ship of pirates. The party were surprised but accepting, with Bartz saying there was no point trying to change Faris' behavior.[1]

At the end, they met Siren, who sucked the souls of Bartz, Faris, and Lenna Charlotte Tycoon by mimicking their loved ones, but failed on the amnesiac Galuf Halm Baldesion, who did not recognize Krile Mayer Baldesion and was not fooled, thwarting Siren's ploy.[1]

Geography[]

The Ship Graveyard is located east of the Torna Canal, and nearby Carwen (to its northwest). It is out in the middle of the ocean, and all that is contained therein are derelict ships. The graveyard has a foggy and foreboding atmosphere, and at the end is a small cove where Siren is found.

Enemies[]

All the enemies are undead (except for Siren's basic form), granting an advantage to the White Mage job, as curative spells deal damage against undead enemies. The enemies are also largely weak to lightning, making Thunder from Black Mage a strong spell. Monks are also effective and can use Kick to damage the groups of enemies fought.

Siren is fought as a boss at the end of the dungeon. A mix of physical fighters and mages should be used in the battle against her.

Musical themes[]

"Cursed Lands" (呪いの地, Noroi no Chi?), also known as "Cursed Earth", is the background music of the Ship Graveyard.
