Lalivero (ラリベロの町 Lalibelo Town) is a town in northern Gondowan and one of the last locations visited in Golden Sun. It is just south of the incomplete Babi Lighthouse and north of Venus Lighthouse and Idejima. Lalivero is where Sheba lived with her foster father Faran and his family before being taken away to Tolbi.

Story[edit]

Kyle.gif Spoiler warning: The following section(s) contain plot details that some people may not wish to learn before reaching this point in the game on their own.

At some unspecified point before Isaac’s party arrives in Tolbi, Babi sent a group of his soldiers to Lalivero to build a lighthouse (this later became known as Babi Lighthouse). Presumably at Babi’s orders, the Tolbi soldiers forced the people of Lalivero to build Babi Lighthouse by taking Sheba captive. Sheba was taken to Tolbi where she remained until after Colosso.

After Colosso comes to an end, Babi has his soldiers escort Sheba back to Lalivero. Unfortunately they were unable to pass through the Suhalla Desert and lost Sheba in the sandstorm. As it turned out, Sheba was rescued by Saturos and Menardi, who then added her to their group of captives. Shortly before Isaac and Co. reached Lalivero, Saturos’ group arrived and forced their way through so as to take the Tunnel Ruins beneath Babi Lighthouse that lead into Venus Lighthouse. Having noticed Sheba, Faran followed them. However, he and his men were unable to enter the ruins, so Sheba’s fate is ultimately placed in the hands of Isaac’s team.

After Venus Lighthouse is lit, Sheba falls of the side of the lighthouse only for the water level to rise and sweep her and Felix out to sea. While Isaac and Co. search for Jenna, Faran and the people of Lalivero spread out to try and find Sheba. Without either search party having any success, the two groups regroup in Lalivero. Before leaving again, Isaac’s party stays just long enough to receive a gift from Iodem: Babi’s Black Orb, which is needed to sail the ship he used to leave Lemuria. The ship in question just happened to be docked in Lalivero. With a new boat in tow, Isaac and friends depart in search of both Lemuria and Jenna.


Origin[edit]

Lalivero is based on Lalibela, Ethiopia. The Church of St. George, a UNESCO world heritage site in the city, is known as Beta Giyorgis in the local Amharic language – a name shared with the Japanese name for Faran, Giyorgis. Furthermore, this town was once an important city in the Kingdom of Aksum, which also was home to the Biblical Queen of Sheba, a clear relationship to Faran's daughter by adoption, Sheba.

Lalivero seems to derive influences from other sites related with the Ancient Near East, specifically the Egyptian Empire and the Arabian Peninsula. Alexandria, the centerpiece of knowledge in Ptolemaic Egypt, was known not only for its great library but also for the Great Lighthouse, which could have inspired the Venus Lighthouse or the Babi Lighthouse. An Egyptian-style Obelisk sits in the center of town. The geography of the region is reminiscent of the Nile Delta in Egypt, and the town of Lalivero sits on the similarly named Nol River.

Furthermore, the appearance, name, and story of the construction of Babi's Lighthouse, referred to as a Tower to challenge the might of the gods by the people of Lalivero, reflect the myth of the Tower of Babel. The Venus Ruins upon which the Tower of Babi sits look remarkably similar to Medieval artwork of the Tower of Babil. In both stories, the lighthouse is struck down after climbing too high, and the ruler who ordered the tower built eventually dies.

Trivia[edit]

  • By wedging Isaac between the pond and the boy pacing in front of the Inn, the player may occasionally become permanently stuck just before the game's end, causing frustration for those who have not learned the Sanctum Trick.
