Aeolus Vale

From Dragon Quest Wiki
(Redirected from Gorges)

Aeolus Vale (formerly Gorges) is a town located on an island far to the southwest of Estard Island, built on both sides of a deep and windy valley.



When the party arrives in Aeolus Vale, they meet a winged humanoid, and are surprised to discover that she can fly. She states that she belongs to the Cirrus tribe, who was given the gift of flight from the Wind Spirit. However, they meet a little girl named Fidelia, who has no wings of her own, being bullied by a group of boys. The party scares the boys off when they approach and find out that Fidelia is the adopted daughter of the Praetor, the leader of the town, explaining why she doesn't have wings like the other Cirrus. At the Praetor's home, he is in a deep argument with an older woman over the merits of the Sacred stone, which allow the people of the Cirrus to fly whenever they please as it provides limitless wind. The older woman, who is actually the Praetor's mother, states that the Cirrus have become too reliant on the stone and that they never needed it to fly before, as they were able to fly whenever the breeze would allow them to. The Preator believes that the Cirrus are in turmoil and is trying to gather a band of warriors to reclaim the stone, which has been lost to monsters in the Sullied Sanctum. He asks the party if they can journey to the sanctum for him and retrieve the stone by defeating the monsters within.
