The City of Euclid (ユークリッドの都 Yuukuriddo no Miyako?, lit. "Capital of Euclid"), known as the Euclid Village (ユークリッド村 Yuukuriddo Mura?) in the past, is the capital of the Kingdom of Euclid, which spans the Euclidean continent of Aselia in Tales of Phantasia. The city lies between Venezia and the village known during different points in history as Belladem, Toltus, and Miguel, with Lone Valley to its northeast.

Geography

The lone city in its area, it is surrounded by plenty of land and not much else. There is the ocean all round except to the south, which has a mountain pass connecting it to Toltus, and a bridge to the northeast connecting it to Lone Valley and the Venezia continent. It also features an extensive Aqueduct system connected to its dungeon. As a village in the past, Euclid is a rural place with much plant life and many hills. Its houses are made of wood, and its a gentle place. When the continent unites and forms a kingdom sometime before the present, Euclid grows much larger and grander. It becomes host to sprawling stone streets and high walls, and what previous is its north exit instead becomes the entrance to Euclid's castle, which is host first to its Independent Order of Knights (独立騎士団 Dokuritsu Kishidan?) and then its Order of the Black Knights (黒鎧騎士団 Kuroyoroi Kishidan?).

Euclid is, surprising, also the home of research, both in science and in magic. Though no such place exists in the present, in the past it is the place where Claus F. Lester and Milard Rune teach theories behind magic to prospective students, and, in the future, it is home to the Royal Science Academy. Euclid's castle also contains some interesting features: a small library with some of the history of the Euclidian continent as well as the Euclid Arena, where the kingdom hosts Battle Tournaments. Though there is much change between its past and present, there is very little between the present and future. Most of the shops, though some go by different names, retain their same positions. Where Cress Albane's uncle Olson's house once was is now the Royal Science Academy, and where Mars Uldole's house once was now contains a boy whose dog can sing a wordless Yume wa Owaranai.

History

In Tales of Phantasia, after Toltus's massacre, Cress Albane flees to his uncle Olson's home in Euclid. There, he finds out from the soldiers at the castle's door that Mars Uldole took over the Independent Order of Knights from his father, Miguel Albane. He visits Mars's wife, who tells Cress that she hasn't seen her husband in three months, after he left in the middle of the night in armor. Resting for the night at his uncle's place, Cress is awoken by the same soldiers who destroyed his hometown. Olson gives the soldiers his nephew in order to prevent Euclid from becoming like Toltus, and Cress is forced away, betrayed. Cress is thrust into one the cells in Euclid's dungeon to rot while stripped of his equipment. A voice calls to him, however, and offers him an earring, which allows him to blow a hole in the wall of his cell. The woman there is dead though the hand which helps him is warm. Cress takes the sword pierced through her body and uses it as his weapon, prying open cell doors. He then meets a young woman named Mint Adenade, whose mother is supposed to be the cell with the corpse. Lying about her mother's state, Cress and Mint escape from the dungeon into the Aqueducts.

In the Aqueducts, Cress finds his first Memory Gylph, and Mint explains it function to him. Crossing the monster-filled walkways, they come across a Spiny Devil guarding the exit, whom they defeat. Once they defeat it, Cress and Mint exit into a tree-lined area, only for a monster to drop behind Mint. Protecting her, Cress is knocked out. Half-conscious, Cress dreams of his parents as Mint helps him escape, ending up in Trinicus D. Morrison's house. After they end up in the past, Cress and Mint head to Euclid Village seeking Claus F. Lester and his knowledge of magic, the only thing which can defeat Dhaos. At Euclid Village, Claus at first brushes the pair off, thinking them to be liars attempting to gain free magic lessons under the guise of saving the world, but his assistant Milard Rune forces him to listen, and he asks the pair to come with him to Lone Valley. At Euclid, Cress and Mint also meet a woman named Nancy, whom Mint identifies as lovesick. They find out that she loves a man named Elwin, and they try to attempt to convince Elwin to see her, but Elwin tells them that his father is the president of a trading company in Venezia and that he's only there on business. Elwin does admit that he wants to see her, but since he has to leave soon, he wouldn't be able to see her again. Cress and Mint tell Nancy this, who is disheartened. They attempt to find Elwin again, only to find that he has returned to Venezia.

Once their travels take them into the future, southern Euclid is spared from Dhaos's attacks due to the presence of the Forest of Spirits, the Great Tree Yggdrasill's home, so near to it. At Euclid, Claus is astounded by the changes in Euclid, but at the inn, he is only reminded of Milard and the simple things they shared. They attempt to go to Alvanista through Venezia, but no ships will run because of Dhaos's influence over the seas. Harrisson lets them into Euclid's Royal Science Academy and the magitech laboratory beneath it. There, they meet with the scientist Stanley, who is developing the Techbirds, machines which can fly through the air. The Techbirds need more power, however, and they enlist Claus's help to make a pact with the Lightning Spirit Volt. Once he does, they obtain the Techbirds for flight, as well as upgrade Arche Klein's broom for long-distance travel. After finding from Ranzo Fujibayashi that Suzu Fujibayashi's parents were sighted in Euclid, Cress joins Euclid's Battle Tournament. Fighting his way through to the top, Cress is attacked by Suzu's parents, Dozo and Okiya. Whether he wins or loses, the ninja still die, and the Battle Tournament is considered null and void, though Suzu joins them on the quest.

While staying the night at Arlee, Claus uses a one-time favor from the Spirit Origin to view the past. He sees Milard teaching children and finds himself at peace. Once Dhaos is defeated, Claus returns to Euclid Village, and Milard embraces him. A hundred years from Cress's present, in Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon, Mell and Dio undergo the Ordeal of Spirits. They visit the Euclid Village of AC.4203, one year after Claus returns from his journeys. At Euclid Village, the pair first meet with Milard, who gushes over them, before talking with Claus about his experiences in the fight against Dhaos. Claus sends them on their way after talking, and Mell and Dio return to Euclid many times. Before they head to the Cave of Earth, they are asked by a boy named Pakku to retrieve a treasure box stolen from him by a Clay Idol. Mell and Dio return with the box, and Pakku thanks them. Euclid is also home to the Treasure Hunter Z, Silver. Silver's dream is to find O-Parts, advanced technology from a lost civilization, and he has the party go searching for him using a dowsing pendulum. They find a lithograph, which they have Claus translate, that tells them to go to the Ancient Ruins. They follow the directions there, only to be attacked by the device they find and are forced to destroy it. In order to keep up Silver's dreams, Dio lies to him that they found a mysterious device too big to bring back, and Silver, gleefully, finds treasure-hunting spirit renewed.

Even farther into the future, during the events of Tales of the World: Summoner's Lineage, the summoner Fulein K. Lester successfully fights off the enemies at Alvanista when he hears that Euclid is under attack and heads there. Repulsing the Demon Lord Xex's monsters, Fulein finds out that Xex is a product of magitech whose creator was killed for treason in Euclid. Swearing vengeance on the humans who destroyed what he loved, Xex retreats to wreak more havoc. The King of Euclid orders Fulein after Xex, but Fulein compromises that if he can reform Xex, then Xex should be able to live. He then writes a letter of passage to allow him to travel easier and also directs him to Lone Valley, where one of his ancestor Claus's pact rings may be found.

Trivia

  • 120 years before the future timeline, which puts it between the past and present timelines, Euclid was split into three separate tribes, each of whom made the Republic of Euclid: the Delonio Clan who ruled Venezia, the Maelgan who ruled southern Euclid, and the Euclidian Clan who held the northern part. King Euclid XXI, the king in the future, is a descendant of Ralph du Euclidnia (ラルフ=ド=ユークリッドニア?).
