Breath of Fire Wiki
ハイランド城 Hairando Shiro (Highland Castle)

Highfort, also known as Highland, is an unrevisitable location within Breath of Fire II. Highfort was built atop the remains of Obelisk, the flying fortress from Breath of Fire.

Role in Breath of Fire II[]

Since the events of the original Breath of Fire, the remnants of the obelisk have become the home to the Highlanders. Ryu and his party must travel there in order to obtain the Famous Flute, which will allow them to communicate with the People of Tunlan.

Sten, the Highlander that previously joined your party comes from there and will insist that he should not return. It is revealed that he was a general there who then left and is now ashamed to be seen again.

Sten then separates from the group as they go on adventuring in Highfort until they find themselves falling into a trap set by Shupkay, the current general of the Highfort army.

As Sten goes on his own he meets up with his old friend Trubo with whom he ends up fighting mid air in falling rubble until they hit the water below them. If Sten fails to defeat Torubo before hitting the water, he winds up back at the dragon statue to try again. After the fight they part ways as Sten continues on to find his friends trapped after he falls for the same trap as his friends.

The group carries on and finds out Shupkay is a Demon and plans on arming a superweapon, which feeds off the emotions of a living host, similar to the Carronade. She successfully manages to activate the machine, but Trubo accidentally damages the controlling part, which causes the machine to explode and severely damage the city. Not all is lost though as Ryu survives and you obtain the flute then say your goodbyes and head again for Tunlan.
