"Marlok again...How many trips does that make this month? I don't think I've seen anyone who cares about making a profit as much as he does!"
— Worker as Marlok and party arrive

Kyoin is a location in Breath of Fire IV. It means "people of the bridge" in the Imperial language [1]. Kyoin’s main feature is the Imperial Causeway. It bears a teleportation device that allows its users to cross the Mud Sea between the Eastern Continent and the Western Continent. It is used by both military and cilvillians. After the Causeway is broken following the fight with Rasso, the town is mostly abandoned by civilians.


Gateway Ymechaf

Ymechaf summoned

Due to the difficulty involved getting into the town, Ryu and the party are smuggled in by Marlok, who hides them in a large wooden crate on his sandflier. When the coast is clear, the party emerges from the chest and makes their way into Kyoin, much to Cray's relief. The party then makes their way up to the teleportation portal that connects the two continents.

Gateway Escape

Dramatic escape.

They are halted by Rasso, who summons another one of his guardians, the fierce samurai warrior Ymechaf. A battle ensues and after the party emerges victorious, they immediately turn around and flee through the closing portal. Rasso cannot believe that another of his servants has been defeated and concludes that it must be due to Ryu being a dragon. He cannot believe what he saw with his own eyes.
