Background & 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.

Due to demand from the town of Bilibin, the lumberjacks of Kolima had been extensively logging the nearby Kolima Forest. Their quest for lumber even took them to the sacred "holy tree", Tret, who resides deep within the forest (although, due to the logging, the forest is now comprised largely of stumps and felled logs). This coincides with the eruption of Mt. Aleph, which rains Psynergy Stones across Angara. Many of these stones fall into Tret's branches, granting him the power to curse people, turning them into trees. It also turns his rage into an uncontrollable monster, which promptly curses the people of Kolima, turning them all into trees so that they will die along with the now mortally-wounded forest.

The residents of Kolima live in hollowed out trees.

When Isaac's party first enters Kolima, Tret uses his powerful magic to try and turn the heroes into trees like the others. But their Psynergy protects them from this evil spell. Isaac and company vow to put an end to the curse caused by Tret. After navigating the forest, the young heroes battle Tret, quelling his anger. Having been brought back to his senses, Tret attempts to reverse his curse, but has been too drained of power from his descent into evil.

It is only after Isaac and the others travel to Imil and meet Mia who helps them through the Mercury Lighthouse that they are able to find a means to save Tret and Kolima's residents. After the party faces off against Saturos, they find that his actions of lighting the Mercury beacon has caused the fountain at the Lighthouse's base to begin to flow with water once again. Quickly, they fill the Empty Bottle (found in Imil) with this liquid, the Hermes' Water, a water with the ability to cure any illness. They head back to Tret and and use the Hermes' Water on him, restoring his strength and allowing him to lift the curse he himself had earlier inflicted, thus saving the citizens of Kolima.

In Dark Dawn[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.

Due to the Golden Sun event, Kolima Village, as well as Kolima Forest, was moved farther east, and is now located in the newly-formed country of Morgal. The area where the village is now located was once marshland, but is now fertile ground. The town is immediately adjacent to Saha Town, with access between the two towns being primarily controlled by a wooden gate, though the towns are also connected by the Saha Cistern. Kolima Village is now a destination for travelers wanting to buy Dream Leaves, special leaves that give people pleasant dreams.

Unfortunately, the village falls under another curse, this time caused by the monster Sludge, who once lived in the marsh that the forest replaced. Tret and Laurel were able to keep Sludge under control most of the time, but during the course of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, Sludge attacks while the Waelda spirits are caught off guard. Sludge cursed the Dream Tree, the source of the Dream Leaves; any new Dream Leaves would give people nightmares instead of good dreams. On top of that, Sludge's curse prevented people from navigating Kolima Forest and shut off access to the town's inn, which happened to be located within the Dream Tree. Fearing that the curse would spread, the people of Saha closed the gate to Kolima Village.

While Matthew's party travels the Morgal region, Briggs asks the group to meet with Tret on his behalf, also giving them some Hermes' Water to aid them on their quest. When the young Adepts first arrive in Saha Town, however, they learn of the curse Kolima is suffering from. Although the gate is tightly shut, the Adepts are able to sneak into Kolima using the Saha Cistern. After they arrive in Kolima, Matthew's group meets an villager who talks them into investigating the tree's problems. She gives the Adepts dream leaves, and has them fall asleep in the Dream Tree. In their dreams, the group explores the Phantasmal Bog located under Kolima, eventually fighting and defeating Sludge. Soon after, the Adepts wake up, finding that the curse has been lifted and the Crush Tusk, which Sludge had been using to block their progress, has been left behind. Kolima's inn reopens, but the villagers note that the Dream Tree is still weakened from the illness. Thus, Matthew's group uses the Hermes Water that Briggs had given them earlier to heal the tree. At this point, Saha Town will reopen the gate, allowing travelers to come in and buy dream leaves at Kolima's shop. Also, the Venus Djinni Pewter meets Matthew's group on the behalf of Laurel and asks them to come to Kolima Forest to speak with her.

After defeating the Mountain Roc, Matthew's party will pass through Kolima Village again and meet Vande, a musician who had wanted to hear the Mountain Roc's cry. After Matthew speaks to him, Vande returns to Belinsk in order to play Arangoa Prelude.

The current village of Kolima is comprised of four gigantic trees, namely the Dream Tree, Djinn Tree, Roof Tree, and Sapling Tree.

  • Dream Tree - This is the tree that produces the famous Dream Leaves and where the Inn is found.
  • Djinn Tree - This tree is where the Venus Djinni Garland is found atop its branches, and where the Item shop is located.
  • Roof Tree - This tree has the largest network of branches amongst the four.
  • Sapling Tree - This tree was said to get its name because it was still a sapling before. Now, it is stands proud and tall.


Kolima's Inn is located in the tall treehouse in the upper left corner of the village and costs 16 coins per party member. However, it can only be entered after Sludge is defeated. Prior to this, the entrance will be blocked by root like structures.

Kolima's Item Shop is located on the bottom story of the Djinn Tree. Unlike other Item Shops, it only sells Dream Leaves, which are necessary to get the Haures Summon at Border Town.
