"Cool beans. I'll just keep an eye on everything from this end if ya don't mind. An' remember, with me and the boys at the rudder, so ta speak, you got nothin' to worry about."
―Grenadine

Grenadine is a character in the Magical Vacation series. He is an ingenious dwarf hailing from the Light Realm, once owning the Iko Domnag factory near Ufot Village. 800 years later, he moved his business to Condimen Tower on Razen, bordering Macaroon.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Grenadine is highly educated and machine-savvy, having produced all kinds of inventions that are distributed throughout the universe. His employees consider him ambitious and constantly in pursuit of greater heights.[1][2]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Grenadine is a stout older-looking dwarf with a round nose and a thick, gray beard. Almost his entire body is obscured by his facial hair, as well as a green horned hard hat. He wears brass bracelets, and a pair of gray shoes.[1][2]

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early life[edit | edit source]

Long ago, Grenadine inherited the Iko Domnag factory from its previous manager, who had constructed the magic doll MD01-Tuna but lost it amidst a war over its possession.[3] During a different war, Grenadine crafted MD02-Bonito to fight among the soldiers. Bonito proved to be too powerful and claimed the lives of many, upon which Grenadine withdrew it from battle and left it with his old companion, a brownie living in the Abyssal Realm's Pyramid.[4]

Magical Vacation[edit | edit source]

After rescuing Latte from Parmesan in Tour de la Roche, Balsamico tasked the party with taking Latte to Iko Domnag. There, they would have Grenadine remodel Latte into a magic power generator, which could power the magic bus and allow it to warp across realms. They proceeded through Ufot Village and up Iko Domnag, taking down invading enigmas along the way. Reaching Grenadine's workshop, the party asked that he remodel Latte, to which Grenadine provided a long list of questions. Surely enough, Grenadine was convinced they were not enigmas trying to destroy the universe, but rather, wanted to save their classmates in the Dark Realm. To prove their strength, he had the party fight his tartar terrier, but they emerged victorious. Grenadine proceeded to remodel Latte as promised, after which the party resumed their adventure.[1]

Magical Starsign[edit | edit source]

At some point after Magical Vacation, Grenadine and his crew left the Light Realm[5] and relocated to the planet Razen, founding Condimen Tower[a] and the village of Macaroon near Habañero Volcano Road. Grenadine also began basing his works on philosophy rather than technology, borrowing knowledge from the archwizard Craaken's Book of the Darned.[6]

Nomenclature[edit | edit source]

His name comes from grenadine, a tart red syrup used in cocktails.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is possible that Grenadine's design is based on Watts as he appears in Legend of Mana, since they are both dwarves with green horned hardhats.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Regarding this location, there are some inconsistencies between the English localization of Magical Starsign and the English fan translation of Magical Vacation. In the Japanese versions of both games, both dwarf factories are called キード・モンダ Kīdo Monga (from がんもどき ganmodoki), meaning "Iko Domnag" should technically be called Condimen Tower in the English fan translation.

  5. Bearnaise: "We used to have a factory in the land of light, Grenadine and the rest of us. We left it behind so that we could fulfill a dream. Not really MY dream, exactly...but it was someone's dream, that's for sure. I don't know what it was, but it was important enough for Grenadine to risk his life for. So it sounds pretty big."
  6. Fondue: "A long time ago, this place was like a huge garage. People tinkered everywhere. Now, the focus is more on philosophy than technology. Technology-minded dwarves have had a hard time fitting in."
