Is is primarily inhabited by Wolba, although there are also human and Iron Ogre residents, and its inhabitants are known to as the Forest Clan.[1] The Forest Clan built Tantar after the Dark Dragons drove them from their original home.

Housing in Tantar consists of a mix of wooden thatched roof buildings and stone ones, while a cobblestone road leads connects the towns various residences and main points of interest.

Role in Breath of Fire[]

Prior to Ryu and Nina's arrival in the region, the Dark Dragons blocked off the river between Tuntar and Tantar in order to get the Ring from the Forest Clan. At one point, a group of warriors from Tuntar drove the Dark Dragon army back into Lament Woods. When Ryu's group first arrived in Tantar, they learn that the Dark Dragons blocked off the river to get the Forest Clan's treasure, the Ring. Torn being not wanting the Dark Dragons to obtain the Ring and a concern for Tuntar's populace, Tantar's Chief is at a loss on what to do. After the River is restored Tantar's Chief decides to let Ryu keep the Ring and gives him the key to the Lake Shrine. While Ryu and his group are away, the villagers of both Tantar and Tuntar prepare for Terry and Amelia's wedding. When Ryu's party returns, the wedding begins. During the wedding, a Dark Dragon General steals the Stone Robot and destroys Tuntar. He orders the Stone Robot to destroy Tantar as well, but it stops moving. Ryu and his group stop the Robot, saving Tantar yet again. The Forest Clan takes pity on the villagers of Tuntar and allow them to stay in Tantar.
