Puerto Valor is a relatively small city that draws inspiration from Spanish coastal cities. It features cobblestone paths and white-walled buildings, as well as a tropical shore that is one of its main attractions. Puerto Valor also features a sea passage that leads to the ocean surrounding Erdrea.
The casino at Puerto Valor and the nearby hotel is another major attraction, with tourists coming from far and wide to gamble inside.
The city's caballeros are famous for their swordsmanship, especially the city's leader Don Rodrigo, who lives in a large private villa managed by his butler Servantes. One of his most famous students is the Heliodoran knight Hendrik.
The party learn that Don Rodrigo had left the city for Heliodor to train their guards, but Servantes is more than happy to open the sea gates for him. As they pass through, Sylvando attempts to hide from Servantes' gaze, but the servant sees him anyways and is shocked.
After Yggdrasil falls and the party defeat Avarith Sylvando reveals that his real name is Norberto and that he is Don Rodrigo's son (much to Hendrik's shock, as Norberto was the only student of Rodrigo's who ever defeated him in swordplay). He decides to take his Soldiers of Smile to his father so that they won't be in danger when he joins the Luminary. Sylvando is nervous about confronting his father, who he argued with over his decision to not become a caballero and instead go into showmanship.
Rodrigo greets Sylvando harshly, asking if he achieved his goal to make everyone smile and snapping at him when he did not live up to his word. However, the old caballero reveals to his son that he does not want him to break promises, and Sylvando replies that he must defeat the Lord of Shadows before he can achieve his goal. Rodrigo agrees to take on the Soldiers of Smile, but appears to regret the decision when they perform their circus act in his house.
Citizens of Puerto Valor speak English mixed with Spanish, peppering their speech with phrases like niño and amigo. Knights are also exclusively referred to as caballeros in Puerto Valor.
