Balmorian Ruins is a stage in Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen. The region is governed by the youthful enchanter Albeleo.


Long ago, Balmoria was a rich kingdom known as the Deneuve Kingdom, but eventually it became nothing more than a barren land full of decaying ruins. Much later, the wizard Saradin led of the peoples of Balmoria, until his fellow pupil Albeleo turned him to stone for accusing their master Rashidi of evil. Loved and cherished by his people even after his apparent death, the sculptor Balkas erected several statues imitating the form of Saradin and placed them in towns and temples across the Balmorian region. Sometime after Saradin was turned to stone, Albeleo took control of the region himself and awaited the advance of the Xenobian Rebellion.

Spoiler alert: The hidden text contains spoilers.
If Saradin is in a unit that comes into contact with the boss:
Albeleo1 Well now, if it isn’t Saradin. I knew we’d meet again.
Saradin1 So you’ve reincarnated again, you arrogant old fool.
Albeleo1 Ha, ha, ha! Speak like that and you’ll make your master angry! Wake up and admit the power of the Dark! You above all could master it!
Saradin1 To what end?! What’s to be had on the fringes of magic?
Albeleo1 Ultimate power! We can surpass the gods themselves!
Saradin1 But for that you will destroy the people! Destroy the Earth!
Albeleo1 I am now immortal. No one can stop me!
Saradin1 ...Wrong! You will follow me into eternal sleep!

Events During StageEdit

  • To recruit the special character Saradin follow these steps:
    • Liberate Wan Kayo to hear the rumor that the Bell of Light (BELL) resides in Kalyao.
    • Liberate the town of Kalyao with the Star of Heroes (HEROSTAR) in the player's inventory to receive the Bell of Light (BELL).
    • Liberate the Roshian Temple west of the town Kannyate to find Saradin's petrified body. Use the Bell of Light (BELL) to revive him. Saradin will ask to join. An answer of "Yes" will allow him to join, while an answer of "No" results in a decrease in reputation.
  • If a unit containing Saradin comes into contact with the enemy commander Albeleo, they will share special dialogue.
  • Explore the area southeast of Wan Kayo, with the Brunhild in the player's inventory, to find a Chaos Gate to Organa. This can be done during the stage, or after its completion.
