Cloud protects Aerith.

Once a center of trade with Ordalia, this city has withered since trade relations with Ordalia were severed.


Trade City of Sal Ghidos (貿易都市ザーギドス, Boueki-toshi Zāgidosu?), also known as Zarghidas Trade City, is a location from Final Fantasy Tactics where Aerith works as a flower girl. To obtain Cloud as a playable character, Ramza Beoulve must buy a flower from Aerith for 1 gil.

After using one of Besrudio Bunansa's gadgets to bring Cloud in from the Final Fantasy VII world, Ramza must track him to Sal Ghidos, where he attempts to defend Aerith from several thugs, but runs into trouble. Ramza's forces join the battle and a victory will result in Cloud joining Ramza's party. His Materia Blade can then be retrieved from the top of Mount Bervenia using the Move-Find ability.
