Muse City (ミューズ市, Myūzu Shi) is a location in Suikoden II which also features in Genso Suikogaiden Vol.1 and Genso Suikoden Card Stories. It is the capital of Muse Principality and center of the Dunan Republic, as well as its predecessor, the City-State of Jowston.


Muse City, once a part of the Dunan Monarchy, gained its status as a city-state in SY 185 during the fall of the monarchy. Its inaugural mayor was Revier. Positioned strategically, the city remained at the forefront of conflicts with the Highland Kingdom. The city would later become one of the founding members of the City-State of Jowston.

As the thriving center of the City-State of Jowston, Muse City boasted a sizable population of 13,000, making it one of the largest cities within the alliance. Its prosperity was evident in the constant bustle of its stores and the vibrant activity of its people. Although lacking a formal trading post, the city's streets were lined with numerous businesses, attracting daily crowds of customers. Commerce and trade stood as the primary industries, reflecting the city's economic vitality.

West of the city lay the gates leading to Jowston Hill, a significant venue for essential City-State meetings. The gates were selectively opened during special occasions and ceremonies, such as these crucial gatherings.

Given its strategic importance and wealth, Muse City became the primary target of the Highland Army once the Dunan Unification War intensified. Tragically, the city suffered extensive damage, particularly after the murder of Mayor Anabelle and the subsequent occupation by Highland forces. The dire situation worsened when Luca Blight rounded up citizens of the city to sacrifice to the Beast Rune, leading to an infestation of Golden Wolves.

After the conflict, Muse City embarked on the challenging path to healing the scars of war. Implementing policies centered around its traditional strengths of trade and commerce, the city now strides confidently towards a smooth recovery.
