(ミュース市, Myūsu Shi
) is a location in Suikoden II
. It is the center of the Dunan Republic
, as well as its predecessor, the City-State of Jowston
The center of the City-State of Jowston, Muse City was also one of the largest cities in all the alliance with a population of 13,000. Prosperous, its stores were always busy and its people vibrant and busy. Although the city has no trading post, its streets are lined with businesses and are crowded with customers daily. Reflecting this, its primary industry was trade and commerce.
To the west of the city lies the gates that lead to Jowston Hill, where important City-State meetings were held. The gate is only opened during special events and ceremonies, such as these meetings.
It is all this that made Muse City the first target of the Highland Army once the Dunan Unification War began in earnest. With the murder of Mayor Anabelle and the occupation of the town by Highland forces, the city suffered extensive damage, not least when Luca Blight rounded up citizens of the city to sacrifice to the Beast Rune.
After the conflict, Muse attempted to heal the wounds of war, enacting policies focusing on centring its industries around its traditional strengths of trade and commerce and now continues smoothly on the path to recovery.
