Carcino (Japanese: カルチノ Carcino) is a country in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. It is located in the north-center of Magvel. Carcino borders Frelia to the west, Renais to the south, Rausten and Darkling Woods to the east. To the north is nothing but the ocean. The remote village Caer Pelyn is located within its borders.
Being a much younger country, Carcino does not possess a Sacred Stone. Carcino also does not have a ruling house, instead being run by a merchant council.
During the War of the Stones Carcino's council split on the matter of siding with Grado or Renais and Frelia. Much of Carcino eventually betrays Frelia and Renais in an attempt to gain the favor of Grado, however, this was not willed by all of Carcino's leaders, as the betrayal was forced by Pablo and not approved by the rest of the council. Pablo forced his way by either bribing or killing the other members, with Klimt being one of the survivors. After Pablo's death Carcino backs out of the war, though and repercussions for the council's actions after the war are not mentioned.
