Xian (シーアン村 Xian Village) is a village in the far-eastern portion of Angara that Isaac and co. travel through on their way to Altin and Lama Temple. The architecture and appearance of the residents of Xian is modelled on ancient or medieval Chinese culture and many people in Xian's speech has minor grammatical oddities stereotypical of English speaking Chinese. Xian is the major producer of silk in Angara, if not the world, and so is the start of the Silk Road. The Silk Road is a trade route that starts in Xian, where merchants buy silk, and winds through the vast wastes of the Lamakan Desert, through Kalay, and around the great Karagol Sea, eventually coming to an end in the town of Tolbi, located near the border of Angara and Gondowan, where merchants sell the silk. Martial arts and east Asian concepts like Chi are popular topics and activities in Xian.

Xian contains the Mercury Djinni Mist. By talking to a woman at the right moment, she will spill her pot of water creating a puddle which you can use Frost on and subsequently jump across to the Djinni.

In Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, the village is never mentioned, but it can be theorized that Xian has become, or at least is located in, the nation of Sana, as both are based on China, both are located on the same place and have very similar names.


For all NPC gossip, see Side Scripts.

The village's Inn service is provided in the lower-right building of village at a rate of 10 coins per party member. (Instead of featuring the word "Inn" in Roman letters, the sign on this building displays the logographic Chinese character for "lodging", 宿, which has different pronunciations among the Chinese languages. If read as a Japanese kanji as a stand-alone word using its kun reading, this would be pronounced yado, whereas its on reading as part of multi-kanji compounds would be shuku.)

Isaac and co in Master Feh's dojo

Xian is home to Feizhi and her father Master Feh, and is the location of the latter's martial arts school. Upon arrival at this school, Isaac's party witness Feizhi falling out with her father. This argument is triggered by Feizhi's claim to have psychic powers of foresight, specifically her foreseeing of her friend, Hsu falling into danger, something which her father adamantly refuses to accept. Unwilling to send out aid, Feizhi storms out to help Hsu personally, even if she must do it alone.

Isaac and co. can then speak to Master Feh, who will explain to them the difference between Chi and Ki (the latter being simply a different name for Psynergy). Chi, he explains, is a form of energy emitted by harnessing the body's physical strength and transmitting it across distances. This is unlike Psynergy (Ki), which is generated by the mind, and not the body, and hence has far fewer limitations on its power, although this Psynergy can only be utilised by those with an Adeptness for it, unlike Chi, which can be used by all, provided they undergo enough training.

Cultural references

Xian is a clearly based on Xi'an, a large city and capital of Shaanxi province in central China that marks the eastern end of the Silk Road.
