The Fortress of Kwaba (クラバの城塞, Kuraba no Zyousai) is a fortress which appears in Suikoden. It functions as a defensive citadel for the Imperial capital of Gregminster as well as a border checkpoint between the regions of Arus and Gouran.
The Fortress of Kwaba adds to the defensive line surrounding the capital, Gregminster and was considered vital to that purpose. The fortress was also the site of decisive battle of the War of Succession and separates the regions of Arus and Gouran.
The fortress was administered by General Ain Gide during the Gate Rune War, who had let the hero pass through during his escape from Gregminster as a favour to his father, Teo McDohl. The fortress was abandoned after the fall of Shasarazade, with a path already cleared to Gregminster, their forces falling back to protect the capital.
The Fortress of Kwaba's theme in Suikoden is the song "Gate", which is song 16 on disc 2 of the Genso Suikoden Original Game Soundtrack.
Kwaba shares "Gate" as its theme with most "fortress"-style locations throughout the game, including Moravia, Pannu Yakuta Castle, the Fortress of Garan, the Fortress of Lorimar, the Northern Checkpoint, and the Floating Fortress of Shasarazade.
