Auguste Isles A special economic zone known for its vast resources of water. Formally known as the August Isles Special Economic Cooperative Territory, it does not fall under the jurisdiction of any of its neighboring governments. Auguste boasts a huge body of water the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else. Thanks to that, it's a highly popular sightseeing destination. There are a plethora of shops on the isles, crowded so close together that it's hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. The tax revenue from these shops makes the Isles abundantly wealthy. They are even able to employ a self-defense force that is on par with a regular military.
Airships As the only real means of travel between the islands, they are the symbol of skyfarers and their crews. Early airships were constructed based on Astral engineering, but advancements in research have been made in recent years. Now airships with all sorts of useful modifications crisscross the skyways.
The Astrals Long ago they invaded the skydoms, but were wiped from the pages of history after the War and now exist as pure enigma. Not one single thing is known about their true nature other than that they posses a mysterious, overwhelming strength. Today, airships employ the engineering of the Astrals.
Attire The climate of Phantagrande Skydom, save for one region, is very warm, and so standard attire consists of light clothing. Most citizens carry a knife or some other small weapon to protect themselves from the monsters that lurk outside the cities. While these weapons are mainly for self-defense, they also double as fashion accessories. Airship crews bring back the latest fashion trends from distant islands.
Albion Citadel A citadel that is home to a prestigious military academy. Originally built by the Astrals, it has become a city centered entirely around its learning institution. With traditions such as battle training with live monsters and Lord Commander selection through competitive fighting events, the culture may seem a bit eccentric. However, their superior academy graduates excel in their fields working for various countries and military organizations.
Albion Academy A military academy located at the center of the Albion citadel. Battle skills are a primary requirement of its students, as monsters appear regularly throughout Albion. However, as the purpose of the institute is to breed military cadets, a full range of lessons from history and tactics to politics and etiquette are offered in order to create the most outstanding knights.
Amalthea Island An island used as headquarters for the Crew of Enforcers' Fourth Fleet, which oversees the Phantagrande Skydom. The entire island belongs to the Fourth Fleet, and almost all of its inhabitants are members of the Crew of Enforcers or are related to the crew and its activities. The area is becoming well-known for second chances, as there are many stories of people who found work here after being captured by the Crew of Enforcers and choosing to turn their lives around.
Crew of Enforcers An immense crew of skyfarers found throughout the sky. The Blue Knight of the Seven Luminary Knights serves as the current captain. Their activities mainly involve apprehending criminals and escorting VIPs, but they take on an abundance of requests from different lands, including goods transport. Airspace is assigned to different fleets, and the Phantagrande Skydom is overseen by the Fourth Fleet, which includes Admiral Lecia and her adviser Monika.
The Blue Knight A member of the Seven Luminary Knights and the current captain of the Crew of Enforcers. Famed for his sense of justice, he has greatly contributed to the reputation of the crew by earning the trust of people from every land. His supreme swordsmanship, included in his renown, is said to have been mastered from a painful journey in his youth, but few people know of the details.
Agastia The venerable capital of the Erste Empire serves as a symbol of the Empire's might. Torches keep it brightly lit day and night. The entire island is constantly under reconstruction to keep up-to-date with the latest technology and has long lost its original luster. Although it boasts the greatest population in the entire Phantagrande Skydom, it is not without its share of problems—especially with regards to environment and civil order.
Akasha A powerful primal beast created by the Astrals in the final stages of the War. Although it possesses the ability to distort and interfere with history, the Astrals were unable to fully control it, preventing its implementation in warfare. Any tampering with the past is sure to affect the present, so when activating Akasha's powers, one must accept the possible risk of erasing themselves from all history.
Alchemy This arcane technique created and refined by Cagliostro allows for the conversion of matter into whatever form is desired. Any material can be transmuted into another so long as the law of equivalent exchange is preserved. That is: one may only take as much as one gives; something cannot be created from nothing. The true value of alchemy, however, lies in a universal truth hidden deep within the secrets of this mysterious art. Alchemist Astray
Antikythera A primal beast that resides on Kluger Island and rules over calculation. Based on local conditions and information about the past, this beast can predict events and outcomes with a high degree of precision. Although this makes Antikythera adept at anticipating the flow of history and behavior of people, the ability isn't suited for predicting results greatly affected by luck. That said, Antikythera bases its calculations on events in the natural world including those at the microscopic level, and it can predict any kind of future when it unleashes its full power.
Alster Island Home to the former Irestill Kingdom, its rulers made a pact with True Dragon Deirdre to stand against the Astral onslaught during the War. That pact continued after the War ended, and every three hundred years the royals of Irestill would use their magic to create a new vessel for Deirdre to inhabit. In exchange Deirdre kept the monsters on Alster in check, but the last king of Irestill, King Connor, ordered the knight Naoise to eliminate Deirdre, which led to the eventual collapse of the kingdom. The island is currently under a new government and working toward rebuilding, one step at a time. Hero's Return
Bonito They say there's a fish that has claimed the lives of many veteran fishermen—the bonito. Hardy anglers who still fish by the pole need both the intuition to predict its movements and the muscle to haul it in. Pole fishing is considered to be superior to net fishing, because the bonito can't mangle itself thrashing against the mesh. Those who land the mighty beast with nothing but grit, rod, and line are revered as legends. Balmy Breeze and Foamy Deep
Bon Dance A dance festival honoring the deceased observed by the denizens of the Auguste Isles. The souls of the departed head out to sea but are said to return once a year during the festival. Bright pyres guide them back to shore, where they dance with the living for a brief but fun moment before fireworks send them off back to sea. Balmy Breeze and Foamy Deep
Bestia Island An island located near the border of Nalhegrande Skydom, it's entirely undeveloped without a single habitation. Due to the power of Echidna, the island's pacted primal, injured or destitute primals are often drawn to the island. Although it's an extremely dangerous place for the average person, the island's overseer Echidna cares deeply for others, welcoming all living beings as if they were her very own children.
Carren's Swimsuit A custom piece designed by Korwa for maximum fun. It's made from highly breathable material that gives a tight, secure fit without constricting the skin; not even the strongest waves could accidently knock it off. In the extremely unlikely event of encountering deadly predators, the miniskirt automatically detaches as a decoy. Poacher's Day
Benthic Island An island of the Auguste Isles. Although its seas are relatively free of fish, it is home to a wide variety of macrobenthos—organisms such as shellfish, octopi, sea urkins, and more. On land you'll find nothing but fishermen, at least until Sierokarte's eagerly-awaited tourist development plans come to fruition. Poacher's Day
Core Monolith Large-scale monoliths that were specially crafted and donated to the Mysteria Academy of Magic. There are two core monoliths installed on campus, both of which connect to other lesser monoliths. One is for magic stabilization while the other is for magic amplification. Lonesome Dragoness
The Clythe Family Calling Valtz Duchy their home, the Clythe Family is a branch of the royal house. Once a clan charged with guarding the archduke, marriage eventually joined their houses. However, the Clythes have not forgotten their roots and continue to hone themselves in the martial arts. The family head is determined based on one's prowess in battle instead of peerage and rank. Though warriors such as they have grown obsolete in the wake of a peaceful Valtz, this doesn't seem to bother them as they enjoy their lives as a family. The Cowardly Hero and the Captive Princess
Alma A priceless miracle elixir whose properties can instantly cure all manner of ailments, it can only be created by the primal beast Sylph. A scandal brought to light the harmful by-product called karmide, and so the production of alma, as well as its very existence, was abandoned altogether. Defender's Oath
Crystal of Beginnings This artifact was created during the War. It has the ability to enhance the will of humans. Because of the dangers this item poses, information about the Crystal of Beginnings is not public knowledge. For example, it is not even known whether the skydwellers or the Astrals created it. To further prevent knowledge of the crystal's power from reaching the wrong hands, research of the Crystal of Beginnings is forbidden. Violet Violence
Amethysts These are pieces of the Crystal of Beginnings. Ezecrain and others of his village use these pieces in their divination. The ability of the crystal to enhance the sixth sense of people makes divination possible. Other abilities of the crystal are unknown. It is said that the larger the amethyst piece, the more power it contains. Any research concerning the details of this finding is prohibited. Violet Violence
Anti-Repulsion Field As one of Robomi's primary weapons, its main purpose is to nullify the abominations' repulsion fields. When paired with more conventional weaponry, it allows the user to effectively combat the monsters. Robomi (Side Story)
Abomination Generators Special equipment found within the research lab Thelaspeces. In ancient times these machines were used to create abominations for research purposes. Now, however, they generate the creatures for a far more deadly purpose. Robomi (Side Story)
Chocolae Island Run by a famous chocolatier, this island is famous for its chocolate. Every year during the Valentine season, many gather in search of such treasure. The rarest kind of chocolate found there is even said to be kissed with love magic. To find those elusive delicacies, one must seek out chocolate sprites, who roam the land freely. Any who come to this island must be ready to run a marathon chasing these enchanting monsters. This in itself is an event before the advent. My First Valentine
Chat Noir's Perfume "Of the many items found as evidence during the Jewel Resort Incident, one of them was the Phantom Thief's perfume. At first it smells like a fresh flower coming into bloom. Then it changes into the scent of a strong spring breeze, before ending with a hint of a cat's sweetness. The various scents probably symbolize his grand entrance and mockery before fading into the wind with a high-pitched laugh. I am not particularly knowledgeable of perfumes, so I am unsatisfied with my description to that end (however, I obtained the cooperation of a feral cat to ascertain a cat's odor). I would also like to add that the midsection of the calling card addressed to the detective has the distinct scent of the pipe from which he usually smokes."

—A passage from Sarya's casebook
Detective Barawa and the Jewel Resort Incident
Canaan Canaan is located in a lower layer of the Phantagrande Skydom. It can only be reached through a treacherous passage dubbed the Celestial Strait, to which countless airships and their crews have been lost. As a result, skyfarers far and wide consider Canaan to be unreachable. What Makes the Sky Blue II: Paradise Lost
City Defense Force A professional fighting force dedicated to protecting the city from abominations. When the siren sounds, they roll out, wielding the weapons designed by Nicholas and accompanied by Robomi replicas. Inspired by the Steel Warriors' heroism, they stand bravely as the city's first line of defense. Go forth, City Defense Force! Only you can carry on their legacy! Robomi Z
Abomination Cells Tyrias, a human-abomination hybrid, implanted kidnapped townspeople with cells harvested from his own body. These people mutated into abominations unable to disobey Tyrias's orders. Nicholas and the captain, too, fell victim to this fiendish experimentation and were forced to follow Tyrias's commands. Can the Rashomon Research Vessel crew save them? Robomi Z
Arcania Taint A mysterious disease that causes magical energy to continuously flow from within the body. Zehek suffers from this ailment and receives treatment regularly from his master, Mishra. However, they know of no cure, applying only treatment to alleviate the symptoms for the time being. Scattering Magic
Brillet Desert A town on the desert island of Sable which changes drastically between the dry and rainy seasons. The rainy season often plagues the town with flooding. The people seem hardened by the rigors of their environment. It is said that on a clear day, the light reflecting off the sand turns the entire town a gleaming silver. Priestess of the Dunes
Branwen's Cauldron The Sable Island Holy Order has made a study of primal beasts since ancient times and always concealed their findings. They determined that the cauldron Branwen holds is capable of producing monsters from the negative emotions of people nearby. This information was not freely available even to priests of the order. There are many theories as to the mechanism by which Branwen's primal beast powers and the cauldron which catches her tears actually produce these monsters, but as yet no definitive answer. Nonetheless, Omar set out to steal Branwen's cauldron in order to manipulate public opinion by summoning and then defeating monsters. Teardrop in the Sand
Book Fair An exhibition and sale where books of all kinds are displayed. These events generally serve as a place for novice authors to present their works and hopefully get noticed by some of the bigger publishers. Some—like the Sphiria Book Fair—are held regularly on a smaller scale, while others—like the Auguste Book Fair—are held infrequently on a much larger scale. The rules and regulations of each book fair can differ greatly depending on the organization managing them. Handsome Gorilla
Cyrath Island One of the many islands in the Auguste Isles. Its very particular terrain lends itself to fresh spring water being available at every turn. Cyrath's seas serve as a migrational route for eal fisherlings, making them ideal for eal-loving anglers. Broiled eal has long been a staple of Cyrath Island. Bzzt! Amped-Up Summer
Broiled Eal A specialty of Cyrath, eals are sliced into thin fillets and put through a metal skewer before being dipped into thick, sweet sauce and grilled over a charcoal fire. Turned over multiple times on the grill until they reach the perfect softness inside while retaining a crisp golden brown sheen on the outside, broiled eals can differ drastically in taste depending on how they are prepared. It is a chef's pride to be able to make quality broiled eal. Bzzt! Amped-Up Summer
Bistro Feendrache In the royal capital of Feendrache stands a long-established restaurant operated by Jack, a former knight-in-training from the Order of the Black Dragons. Jack took over the bistro after his father—the former owner—passed away, but management was a challenge he wasn't prepared for, and soon tumbleweeds were practically tumbling though the eatery. After the bistro received an ultimatum from Savarin, a renowned gourmet, the crew stepped in to remake the restaurant with the assistance of Lancelot, Vane, Percival, and Siegfried. As a sign of respect for the knights who helped the eatery weather the crisis, it was renamed Bistro Drachenritter. Welcome to Bistro Feendrache
Central Axis An organization based on the moon, far from the Sky and Astral Realms. Cassius, like many moondwellers, is a member. It is a strictly regimented society where members have no choice of profession and receive their food, necessities, and luxuries in accordance with their ranks. They are at war with strange, nebulous life-forms. Second Advent
Chaos Matter A crystalized form of chaos, which is a property specific to the Crimson Horizon. The existence of chaos was purely academic, until special circumstances allowed chaos to take form as chaos matter. It has the ability to negate the Sky Realm's providence, which holds sway over logic, causality, and the laws of physics. Thus even immortals can be slain by chaos. What Makes the Sky Blue III: 000
Crimson Egg After suffering defeat in the War, primal beast Veselago assumed the form of a dragon egg—an exact copy of Malinda's egg to be exact—in order to hide and recover from its wounds. Malinda's mother was tricked into thinking it was part of her brood and protected both eggs from any and all threats. When she sensed the eggs were about to hatch, the mother left the eggs on Medvecia. Fall of the Dragon
Arcane Bow A bow that shoots arrows generated by magic. Having been created by a guardian village during the War to seal away the Forbidding One, its arrows have the ability to decrease the power of its target, the effectiveness depending on the magic of its wielder. It appears to have been repaired numerous times throughout the centuries. Yesterday's Scars and Tomorrow's Hope
Bow A ranged weapon used throughout the Sky Realm for hunting and fighting monsters. While a skilled hand is necessary to maximize a bow's accuracy and power, the weapon sees wide use because it can be obtained more easily than guns that require specialized knowledge and technology to produce. Bow shapes vary from island to island. Yesterday's Scars and Tomorrow's Hope
Crossbow A weapon that fires arrows using a spring-loaded mechanism. Although more powerful than a bow, it generally takes more time to reload, making continuous fire difficult. Excluding those that employ the use of magic, crossbows that fire rapidly often do so at the expense of power. Yesterday's Scars and Tomorrow's Hope
Barrel Bomb Barrels symbolize sustenance for those who ride the waves. Sturdy and buoyant, these adventure essentials at times store provisions or treasure, and at times serve as lifelines for seamen fallen overboard. In recent years, they've grown rarer on account of storage innovations, the suitability of burlap sacks for treasure, and life buoys' burgeoning popularity. When push comes to shove, though, a seafarer will always be willing to place his trust in a barrel. The Maydays
Blue Liberation Front A resistance group that opposes the Istavion Kingdom's government. Their members use blue scarves to identify themselves. They've pulled off some clandestine operations, such as helping the crew break out of the royal palace and then supplying them with identification papers procured in advance. Their leader is said to have the power of clairvoyance, but those claims have yet to be verified.
Crystal Slate Commonly seen on Kainourios Island. Resh created these in the image of the smartphones used by Hiro and his friends for the sole of purpose of gathering Shadowverse play data. They can be used only on Kainourios and instantly turn into dry sand when taken off the island. Shadowverse: Beyond the Sky
Artificial Body A physical body made artificially through alchemy. One can use it as their own body by transferring one's soul into it via alchemic methods. As the body is an artificial creation, it does not possess the ability to age or produce offspring as living things do, and requires regular medication and maintenance in order to continue functioning. In the case that a body retains a mind of its own, the body is then referred to as a homunculus. Alchemist's Desire
Alohas Super Resort An idea Friday came up with to cure people of their everyday fatigue. The colossal resort mainly consists of a luxurious hotel, complete with spacious guest rooms and meeting rooms of all sizes. Leisure facilities and services available include a hot springs area, indoor pool, theater, beauty salon, scalp massages, and other options for relaxation. The luau—an event at the theater held exclusively for hotel guests—and quality pineapples locally cultivated in the resort's greenhouse are also popular selling points. The pineapples are sold as souvenirs as well, making up an important part of the resort's revenue. The facility as a whole was built with an ancient, legendary island as its concept, while a tall statue of FRIED SHRIMP decorates the lobby to promote the healthy spirit of Premium Friday. The Divine Generals themselves paid a visit to the resort at the time of its opening, which has prompted a significant influx of visitors since. The facility is ideal for not only day trips and family vacations, but also accommodates ceremonies, meetings, workations, and a variety of other purposes. The Alohas Super Resort is definitely a must-visit for all. The Divine Generals Assembly
Amazing Cigarette A type of tobacco with a characteristically sweet smell, distributed to young people by a rogue gang. Commonly known as "mazig," its hazardous ingredients put those who smoke it in a state of euphoria, while at the same time dulling their sense of pain and ability to think. Highly toxic and addictive, continued abuse of this drug can result in visual and auditory hallucinations, as well as bring on abnormal behavior. Amazing Cigarette is currently labelled as an illegal drug; possession or any usage thereof is under the strict control of the Skydom Bureau of Investigation. Showtime: Legend of the Blue Yonder
Come Alive The state of deep relaxation reached by repeating the entire sauna process—a steam in the sauna, a dip in the cold-water bath, and a stint in the outdoor air—multiple times. Achieving this state confers multiple benefits, such as feeling inspired, becoming one with the universe, and much more. Those who've experienced this incredible sensation let loose from their lips "I'm alive!" and are eager to repeat the process. The Time a 37-Year-Old Former Imperial Soldier Got His Life in Order by Awakening to the Greatness That Is Saunas
Cerulean Spa A public bathhouse in the Auguste Isles. Having many of the same accommodations as a luxury hotel, guests are welcome to treat it as a resort location and stay the night. Cerulean Spa houses several facilities not seen in the typical bathhouse, from pools to jacuzzis to spas to massage parlors, making it a popular destination for the younger generation—particularly among couples, as they're allowed to bathe together as long as they're wearing swimsuits. The Time a 37-Year-Old Former Imperial Soldier Got His Life in Order by Awakening to the Greatness That Is Saunas
Accordant One who is recognized by a Horoscope and is accordant with the weapon. An Accordant is capable of drawing out a Horoscope's special power. To become accordant with a Horoscope, one must be concurrent with the weapon's "sign" and meet a number of requirements, making Accordants very rare. Marionette Stars
Chairman The highest position within Navis. The Chairmen act as leaders, devising plans which they call "constellations" and deploying the organization's forces. There are three Chairmen in Navis, with no particular hierarchy among them. Plans are made with the concurrence of all three leaders. Marionette Stars
Auditor The main members that comprise Navis. Though Auditors are ranked by number, all of them have exceptional fighting capabilities. Their primary duty is to inspect and determine whether Messengers—Navis's working force—and Stars—ordinary people used for Navis's plans—are carrying out their work as the organization intends for them. In addition, Auditors are entrusted with missions to gather Horocopes, also acting as Accordants for the weapons themselves. Each Auditor is in Navis for his or her own reasons; none of them appear to be aware of the Chairmen's true intentions. Marionette Stars
Chamux A religious organization founded by Rhiogur, its base comprised of the remaining members of the Odajumoki Gang. Chamux has garnered a large number of followers—and with it, much power—claiming Guzaletha's belief of having "the freedom to rampage" as its doctrine while the group attempts to dominate the skies. The Crew of Enforcers and a number of kingdoms have established an alliance to put a stop to Chamux's violent activities. Freedom's Dirge
Chamux Disciple A devoted member of Chamux, referred to by many outside the organization as zealots. They tend to obey their orders blindly, seeing the group as a family that satisfies their wants with material wealth, a guarantee of the freedom to rampage, and a feel-good environment of like-minded members. Freedom's Dirge
Adventurer from Vana'diel An individual who has touched many lives and continues to explore Vana'diel to this very day. Final Fantasy XI: Mirage Minstrel
Blade of Tyranny Vasuria A blade forged to counter the Blade of Chivalry Ditoria, which is held by Yuisis. In similar fashion to Ditoria, Vasuria can be brandished as a broadsword, or split in two for a dual-wield style. The weapon unleashes its wielder's sense of reason and desire, allowing both to be incorporated into an exponentially powerful attack. In order to keep the weapon out of the hands of especially ambitious individuals, the first Ditoria boss had the blade sealed away in a warehouse. Vasuria would only see the light of day once more when Arrogante discovered the weapon during a reorganization of the warehouse that housed it. A Ballad of Unbending Chivalry
Blade of Chivalry Ditoria The Blade of Chivalry doubles as the tool needed to prove one's status as the leader of the Ditoria Knights. Yuisis is its current wielder. When brandished by one possessing a chivalrous spirit, its power to help the weak and underprivileged is intensified. When this power is activated, the blade glows a rosy pink. According to a document written by the first Ditoria boss, if wielded by a person possessive of true chivalry, the sword is powerful enough to cut down even primal beasts. It is also written that the blade can combine with other blades and magical tools, but Yuisis has thus far put little stock into those rumors. A Ballad of Unbending Chivalry
Erste Empire A militaristic empire that has brought nearly all of Phantagrande Skydom under its control. It used to be no more than a small country called the Erste Kingdom. However, when The Black Knight gained control and made the switch to imperialism, the strength of the empire increased tenfold. Currently they are conducting vigorous research on primal crystals and the legacy of the Astrals, but the Erste Kingdom was originally famous for techniques used to produce high-quality golems.
The Earthly Realm The land of the dead. Those who have been to the Realm and subsequently returned exist only in myth. Ever since ancient times, falling to earth has meant death. Even today, there are some funeral rites that include casting the coffin of the deceased to earth. Records exist of curious orders who had set their sights on earth, but each and every one has vanished, so no one can be sure whether or not they were able to reach the Earthly Realm unscathed.
Erste Royal Family The royal family that once ruled all of the Erste Kingdom before its imperialization. Well-versed in special golem creation techniques, they are considered the forefathers of golem technology. The queen, though she has been rumored to possess ties with the Astrals, was greatly loved by the people of Erste, and her passing is deeply mourned. However, the heir to her throne has gone missing, and many worry for her safety.
Dark Essence A crystal borne from the Erste Empire's research of Lyria and the primal beasts. Originally designed to mimic the power of the Astrals, it has the power to bestow artificial Astral power unto beings from the Sky Realm. However, wielding powers from a different dimension must not be done without great caution.
Deus Ex Machina Buried in the annals of the Erste Royal Family's dark history, this primal beast sucks the essence out of humans and instills it into other matter. It can also swap the essence between humans, but cannot destroy or create it anew. This primal beast came about from a request by the Royal Family to the Astrals to create golems resembling humans. But asking for Astral cooperation can been seen as a betrayal to skydwellers and, as such, Deus Ex Machina's existence is known only to a select few within the Empire.
Erste Modern Arms The Empire's latest defense force, including the MK28, was designed to be as powerful as dark essence—sans all the dangerous side effects. Little weaponry can be equipped in its current prototype form, but the plan is to eventually have the capability to instantly switch between all sorts of weaponry to tackle any situation.
Dydroit Belt A giant archipelago straddling multiple skydoms located beyond the Grim Basin. It's composed of giant crags held together as one by the power of the primal beast Kikuri. Within each skydom area the Dydroit Belt covers, there is one main city, but the people are mostly merchants and explorers with long-term residents few and far between. Although it's one of the few places where you can reach neighboring skydoms without using an airship, anyone, excluding the Seven Luminary Knights, who dares to enter the Grim Basin must be reckless in spirit.
The Four Primarchs When the Astrals took over the skydoms thousands of years ago, they created the original primal beasts in order to regulate the world. Four of those origin beasts in particular oversee the tetra-elements responsible for natural order: Michael (fire), Gabriel (water), Raphael (wind), and Uriel (earth). They usually remain assimilated into the sky, aiding the supreme primarch Lucifer with absolute loyalty. What Makes the Sky Blue
Deirdre's Revival Ceremony Deirdre transfers her core to a new vessel every three hundred years. At that time the presiding ruler of Irestill uses their magic power to help create the new vessel. Over the years, however, the details of this arrangement were lost, and the late King Connor unwittingly terminated the pact by commanding Naoise to eliminate Deirdre. Hero's Return
Eternalirium Eternalirium is when a primal beast enters an irreversible state of frenzy. It was first invented by an Astral research lab during the War. The primal beast's sense of self is erased, and it exceeds its original limits to take on a new, destructive form that cannot be suppressed. Returning to their original state is impossible once eternalirium occurs. Ranger Sign: Bravo!
Festival of Falling Flame An annual event held at the Port Breeze Archipelago where culture and business come together. Merchants from all over gather on this momentous occasion to set up shop, entertaining the huge crowds that partake in the event. The main attractions are the duels happening aboard the Jewel Resort Casino Liner and the circus of horrors housing exotic monsters. This festival originally began as a means to pacify the primal beast Phoenix by offering it fiery monsters. But with the Phoenix now largely considered a mere superstition, the practice has long been abandoned. Festival of Falling Flame
Duel The main attraction of the Jewel Resort Casino Liner. Watching the duelists of the arena battle it out is always a tremendous thrill, as evidenced by the fanatical cheers and screams of the fans during any match. Festival of Falling Flame
Forbidden Magic Forbidden arts that defy all logic of the natural world. Due to the sheer dangers involved, all research was prohibited and eventually the arts were lost. However, one family continued to study the arts behind closed doors, thereby exposing numerous kingdoms to a terrifying menace. Four Knights of a Fallen Land
Estioss Located in an area with winds as violent as the Grim Basin, there is not a merchant, cartographer, or skyfarer who dares go near. Whether or not civilization can even be found on this island is uncertain, for no records exists. That is why it is known as a land of ill repute. Titanic Yeager
Eureka Island An island that holds many memories for the brothers Rashomon and Daimon. Previously home to quarries and mines which produced highly workable raw materials, the processing techniques developed here were invaluable to the era. However, advancing technology led to a decrease in demand, causing the facilities to close and the island to be forgotten. Growing up, Rashomon and Daimon used the resources lying dormant on this island for the manufacturing of prototype parts. Robomi Z
Eastern Island of the Rising Sun During the War, research on weaponizing primal beasts was conducted here. Now it is a forgotten land faded from memory, all but erased from the annals of history. Scattering Magic
Fehrtyl Island Known for its fertile and flourishing landscape of fruits, nuts, and mushrooms, this island is known as the “bountiful island.” Many of the products native to the island attract tourists from across the sky. For that reason, the island’s lax borders supposedly allow for visitors to freely come and go to enjoy the harvest and mountains. The Girl Who Leapt Through Mountains
Druga Pirates A group of fishermen now in its seventh iteration, led by a woman named Sig. She and her pirates uphold the pride of protecting the island from rowdy guests, monsters, and other troubles. Her destiny is to take down the primal beast Albacore, a mission handed down to her from generation to generation of previous leaders. Dark Giant of the Blue Sea
Etemenanki This primeval structure high above the clouds serves as an altar of sorts from which the Omnipotent may deliver his will. Hints of Etemenanki's existence can be found in the creation myth passed down by skydwelling civilization, in which the structure is referred to as the divine tower. Constructed out of materials no longer found in modern times, it feels neither worldly nor Otherworldly—if anything it reverberates with the power of a god. Even among the Astrals only a select few know what Etemenanki truly is. What Makes the Sky Blue III: 000
Elemental Resonance Reaction A reaction by which elements of the same type begin to resound and affect each other. Although elemental properties are found in all forms of life, resonance is typically not felt or easily identified by skydwellers or primal beasts. Large amounts of elemental properties can be found in primal beasts or elemental gems, occasionally triggering a resonance reaction. Baal has the ability to sense and amplify this reaction, allowing skydwellers and other primal beasts to feel its presence—a trick that could very well bring about new phenomena. Primal Resonance
Dragon Blood For centuries, legends of dragon blood and its mystical powers have been told throughout all of the Sky Realm. One such legend speaks of its power to grant immortality, though the truth to this tale is anyone's guess. SIEGFRIED
Erdeni Kingdom One of the three countries located on Isthra Island, whose culture greatly values individuality and history. Mostly consisting of mountains and plains, agriculture and mining are the mainstays of its economy. Most of Isthra's historic ruins have been found within Erdeni's borders, and their scholars cooperate with Sphirian scholars to research the creation myth. Thanks to legislation promoted by the previous monarch, this kingdom's society is the freest from classism of the three on Isthra Island. The citizens take great pride in their role as preservers of the island's history, and are therefore resistant to cultural influences from beyond their borders. The Art of Mercy
Duchy of Dalmore A small country known for its natural defenses. It is surrounded by mountains and filled with natural beauty, while the leylines running through the land make it a suitable place to study magic. The Savior of Dalmore
Disassembler A massive device, comparable to a sewage system, that supports life on the resource-deplete moon. Anything tossed into it is broken down at the molecular level and recycled. In addition to serving as Central Axis's lifeline, it was created with the goal of ultimately recycling all life in the Sky Realm.

Ecksegrande Skydom One of seven skydoms, Ecksegrande is subjugated by the Istavion Kingdom and overseen by the seat of the White Knight. However, an invasion by the Otherworld left the skydom in a state of ruin, and only a small number of people managed to evacuate, including the current White Knight.

Idol Originally a statue made to represent a god or deity as an object of worship. The concept of an idol has existed in the skies since time immemorial.

Due to such similarities to traditional idols, these individuals have come to be known as "idols" themselves. Cinderella Fantasy: Piña Hazard

As the true nature of this pact lies within the heart, those who only desire power will never withstand the primal connection and will surely lose their lives. These teachings have now spread amongst skydwellers, but the origins were devised by the Astrals in order to wield the true power of the primals without relying on the power of the islands.

Homunculus An existence born through alchemy where a body possesses a mind of its own. Seen as an advanced moving figurine, a homunculus is capable of individual thinking and behavior, and often inherits characteristics from its creator. In alchemy, it is believed that the bodies of both people and homunculi consume genetic factors in order to stay alive. However, as homunculi are artificial creations, they possess a significantly smaller amount of genetic factors compared to people who are naturally born. Thus, in order to survive, homunculi require a regular intake of either medication containing their creator's genetic factors, or their creator's blood; sufficient genetic factors from their creator are also needed for homunculi to advance themselves from birth. In the case that a homunculus does not receive a regular intake of genetic factors, its survival instincts will cause it to fall into a state of hunger. Although it is possible for a homunculus to take in genetic factors from people aside from its creator, a continued input of factors from other people will disrupt the natural foundation within the homunculus's body and cause it to eventually lose its sense of self. It is said that a completed philosopher's stone is capable of turning a homunculus into a living existence equivalent to that of a naturally born person, but due to the lack of alchemists able to create the legendary stone, very few homunculi have managed to reach this stage. Alchemist's Desire

The Lost Royal Families Bloodlines of royal families from a thousand years ago who ruled a long-lost kingdom, and the ancestors of Societte, Yuel, and Kou. Originally, the sovereign of the first family reigned supreme, but ever-increasing land expansion and population explosion pushed the first sovereign to make eight trusted vassals lords of their own fiefdoms. But many of those lords became drunk with power and abused their authority. Fearing an eventual civil war, the first sovereign established a hierarchy of the families in hopes of long-lasting peace. This system became moot, as they all eventually bowed down to Ninetails, compelled into presenting their dances to her on a regular basis. The first sovereign saw this as a desecration of sacred tradition and conspired with the others to seal away Ninetails for good. Though the plan succeeded, Ninetails let out a lethal miasma, killing all nine sovereigns present before she turned to stone. Leaderless, the kingdom gradually faded into oblivion.

Kainourios Island A remote island in the Phantagrande Skydom that is under the control of a local primal beast created by Astrals long ago. It was only recently that crystal slates began to spread throughout Kainourios for the purpose of playing Shadowverse, giving rise to special rules on the island. The card game came to be used for the purposes of trade and other matters, and special soldiers known as keepers became the wardens of towns and villages all over, allowing entry only if bested in Shadowverse. Master-class players flocked to the island's central metropolis, engaging in heated matches daily in hopes of earning the right to challenge the gamemaster. The farther away from the metropolis, the lower the rank of residents and keepers is. Those who cannot win even against the keepers on the fringes of the island are forcibly detained and sent to a facility. The same goes for those who refuse any matches here; that, or they are otherwise charged with holding contempt and thereby eliminated. Residents of high-ranking towns do not need to challenge the keepers of lower-ranking towns to gain entry, but losing to someone in battle there will strip them of their privileges. Ever since Shadowverse became the domineering culture of the island, monsters were never seen again by its residents, almost as if replaced by keepers. Shadowverse: Beyond the Sky

Paliuli Pararaiha
Jorha During the War, skydwellers used inhumane weapons and magic arts to fight against the Astrals, but once the dust settled, they sought to seal away the techniques they had created—with the exception of one group. Fearing a second invasion by the Astrals, this group preserved and furthered the research that had defeated their foes, though persecution from other skydwellers forced them to always stay on the move. Their wandering ways earned them the name Jorha. The organization is comprised of the original researchers' descendants, as well as young talent showing sufficient aptitude and people with connections to the mafia. A Tale of Kindled Bonds
Libertaria Island One of the islands that make up the Istavion Kingdom, it's governed by Viceroy Amar and provides the kingdom with all of its entertainment needs. Composite primal beast Zoetrope's pact with the island facilitates the phenomenon of mask manifestation. In addition to notable attractions like the masks and Central Theater, the island is equipped with everything a visitor could ever ask for. It's not surprising that an island dedicated to pleasure has looser rules, but the proper fostering of minors is where corners can't be cut, hence the reason why certain areas are manned by security guards to keep kids out.
Levin's Hot Spring District Located in the southwest region of Levin, the area once served as a hot spring sanatorium to ease the wearied bodies of warriors who competed at the arena. After the arena closed, the hot spring town was known only to a scarce few; however, its development has seen a drastic change as of late thanks to the Disaster Operations Planning Executive Yurius and his team, as well as the generous investments of King Audric's parliament. Now, the main street of the hot spring district is lined with long-established shops as well as a yumomi facility and various hot spring inns, complete with products Levin prides itself in such as grape wine, hot springs manju, and thunder domes. A slight ways away from the town is the "inseparable rock," which serves as a popular spot on the cliffside for people to enjoy a breathtaking view. Though yukatas are available for rental within the town, as yukatas have only just been adopted into Levin, selection is still fairly limited. With fireworks festivals potentially becoming a regular event for the hot spring district in the future, plans for increasing the variety of yukatas available are currently underway. A Sweltering Eternal Getaway

Kingdom of Patmos A kingdom that has existed since the War. Its people once occupied a primal beast research laboratory located on the island, waging a fierce battle against the Astrals seeking to reclaim it. The primal beast Amulet they discovered abandoned there ended up fighting alongside the kingdom, helping them fend off the Astral threat. Though the ending of the War saw the Astrals retreat, the kingdom suffered tremendous damage at the hands of Amulet, who lost control of her power and razed its central town to the ground. The present town and castle were rebuilt after Amulet was sealed away. Due to the bitter memories surrounding the devastation of their country, the citizens believe that primal beasts are enemies seeking to destroy them, leading them to have a much stronger aversion toward primals than the average skydweller.

Civil unrest stands as one the skydom's biggest problems. With giant ruins nearly the size of the islands they float above, the particularities of Nalhegrande Skydom draw attention from all over.
Magic The power that governs all things mysterious. Those who master this power are called mages. Unlike primal beasts, this skill has existed in the skydoms since ancient times. There are even schools dedicated to studying the craft. It is possible to achieve power on par with that of the primal beasts upon mastering magic, but those who have reached that level are few and far between.
Mercenaries/Agents A very ordinary occupation. It covers a broad range of jobs, from guarding cities or important people to intervening in international conflict. There are those who earn a living this way while also belonging to a skyfarer crew. This arrangement is quite convenient, as use of an airship provides a special freedom of mobility. However, the profession doesn't require licenses or credentials, so the quality is hit-or-miss. Anyone who wants a job well done would be wise to put in a request at the Mercenary's Guild, even if it costs a little extra.
Mephorash A desert island rich in history and abundant in ancient ruins. Dating back to before the Great War, it was once the capital of the Erste Kingdom. What was once the glorious mecca of golem industry has become a shadow if its former self with the advent of the primal beasts and their research. The land has slowly dwindled into obscurity, and its population has withered to less than a tenth of what it once was.
Malice Malice is the form of a primal beast that has been subject to excess infusion of dark essence. Though they possess astounding power in this state, the Astrals never designed them to be able to handle such amounts of dark energy. There is great risk of destroying the primal beast itself.
Orchid A young girl whose spirit once dwelled in the shell of Princess Orchis after primal beast Deus Ex Machina severed the princess' spirit from her body. With the help of Lyria and General Adam, Orchid's spirit was placed into an advanced golem similar to the type created for the general. However, maintaining her new body requires lots of energy, leaving her with a healthy appetite.
Oarlyegrande A skydom that borders Nalhegrande Skydom and can be reached through the Dydroit Belt, which traverses the Grim Basin between them. Currently the Istavion Kingdom, which retains the Golden Knight of the Seven Luminary Knights, holds dominion over this skydom.
North Vast A great land mass in the most northern part of Phantagrande. It is mostly unexplored, but some areas, locked in endless territorial disputes between different nations and powers, are occupied by lawless groups. Silverwind Stretch, considered the roughest place in Phantagrande, and the Eoniho Mountains are located here and partially cross into the Grim Basin.
Merkmal Island An island located on the edge of Nalhegrande Skydom, landmarked by the giant fortress left by the Astrals. Although it falls under the rule of Idelva Kingdom, it's mostly untouched as the island is without a significant industry or residential population. But since the settlement by the outlaws in recent years, it's become fairly independent, leading to uneasiness regarding their new role in the sky.
Maiden of Xochitl Island On Xochitl Island a maiden's job is to sing and dance before large crowds of adherents known as ichnia. With the ichnia's loyal support, miracles are bound to happen. Maidens go through a selection ceremony at age fourteen and graduate when they turn sixteen. Five Flowers of Fate
Mysteria Academy of Magic The most prestigious and preeminent magic academy in Phantagrande, its reputation commands respect far and wide. From royal families to the lowest commoners, all aspiring mages are welcomed through its gates. Equipped with two core monoliths, even novices find themselves commanding magic with ease. Students here study all kinds of magic from morning until night—sometimes even the forbidden kind. Lonesome Dragoness
Monolith Monoliths are magical stones that help stabilize or amplify magic. Their power and stability, as well as their market value, are proportional to their physical size. The core monoliths that the Mysteria Academy possess are extraordinarily rare and expensive. Lonesome Dragoness
Order of the White Dragons This group of knights maintains peace for Feendrache, royal capital blessed by primal beast Sylph's benevolence, and its surrounding areas. Formerly known as the Order of the Black Dragons, the murder of King Josef forced a name change and reorganization in which Lancelot was promoted to captain under Consul General Isabella. There is no hand-holding in this order; each knight is expected to adhere to strict codes of discipline and excellence. Defender's Oath
Order of the Black Dragons Before it became the Order of the White Dragons, the Black Dragons were the protective organization of Feendrache led by Siegfried the Dragonslayer. Siegfried disappeared when he came under suspicion for King Josef's murder. The order changed its name to the White Dragons, and Lancelot took over as captain. Defender's Oath
Operation: Apprehend Poseidon The brainchild of Furias, the scheme was to control the primal beast Poseidon with dark essence and use it as means to provide drinking water within an imperial ship. Originally conceived as an easy way to obtain fresh water at sea, it took none of the risks it would pose into consideration. Many within the imperial army saw the dangers of this plan and voiced opposition to its implementation. Blade of the Young Champion
Order of the White Dragons Exam This prestigious exam is offered to anyone wishing to enlist in the Order of the White Dragons. Starting from the year the members of Team Chickadee applied, a revised exam was installed by Captain Lancelot—the largest distinction being proctors spending extended periods of time with applicants to fully scrutinize their personality traits. With this change, the exam has become more accessible for those who have chivalrous virtues within them above all other factors. Divergent Knighthoods
The Moon A mutable celestial body, considerably larger than everything else in the night sky. The skydwellers look upon it with a sense of wonder, as it is constantly changing form. It was once thought to be just a pale star, but when Zeta discovers a mural on Moon Sliver, the crew believes that it's an island floating in the upper regions of the sky. Right Behind You
Moon Sliver A peripheral island, its geography is reminiscent of the bumpy surface of the moon when seen from a giant telescope. The Society has identified this location as one of the Foe's bases. A direct line of communication remains between those who dwell on the moon and the Foe, but no one knows how it works. Right Behind You
Oneiromancy The ability to listen to a recount of a dream and tell what worries a person, what they hope for, how they're feeling, and what the future holds for them. What each dream represents is entirely dependent on the dreamer. It requires great skill to correctly read a person and interpret what their dreams mean. Miscolored Memories
Nalhe Great Wall A relic from a different age enshrined in the skies above Nalhegrande. It's existed since before the War, when the Astrals reigned over Nalhegrande. Originally created by the Astrals to combat skydwellers, it can cross skydoms and destroy whole islands with a single blast. The divine retribution that befell Torhid Kingdom was in actuality an attack from this weapon.
Midnight Island Home to the goblins, this island is a desolate conglomeration of stone and rubble. Deep within its caves lies a fortress, which the goblins defend with their lives. It is deep within these caves that the Goblin King has hidden the primal beast, Hekatonkheir, as his ace against the Menean Empire. The Sleeping Island Giant
The Menean Empire This empire exists in the eastern region of Phantagrande and is occupied by Lumacie and Sephira military forces. The Menean Empire is run by General Vizan who is deeply trusted by his people and very often conducts external negotiations. Within the empire, there are rumors of blood-stained battles for the crown, but that history has long been swallowed by the darkness. The Sleeping Island Giant
New Year's Soba A dish eaten for good luck at New Year's. Because soba is easier to cut than other types of noodles, it is said to symbolize cutting ties with the misfortunes of the preceding year. An alternate explanation is that the long, fine noodles embody a wish for longevity. Ingredients and seasonings vary between regions, but no matter where it's eaten, it represents an earnest wish for a good year to come. Auld Lang Syne
Moondwellers The mysterious denizens of the moon. They lack a spoken language, communicating instead through electronic tones. They prize logical thought and prefer to deal with the world around them in a mechanical fashion. They struggle to understand and frequently exhibit contempt for illogical decisions and actions. Most moondwellers' lives are controlled by the organization to which they belong. Second Advent
Micenos Island A small, unremarkable island tucked away in a corner of the Phantagrande Skydom. It has one medium-sized town, on the outskirts of which is a place known as Mao Mera Hill. For some reason the citizens don't seem fond of cats. The Many Lives of Cats
Mao Mera's Cage A strange-looking building on Mao Mera Hill, on the outskirts of Micenos Island's only town. It once served as a laboratory to a pair of married scientists but was abandoned after the husband died. The hill has become a dumping ground, and the labyrinthine interior of the former lab discourages exploration. It appears to have been appropriated as a stronghold by the local feral cats. The Many Lives of Cats
Matatabby A plant with a unique aroma. Its scent has an intoxicating effect on cats. The Many Lives of Cats
Medvecia Island This island is home to beings said to have only appeared in legends: vampires. Located in Phantagrande's northeastern region, the entire land mass is perpetually hidden in a thin layer of fog; its residents are protected from the sun, but that means living in a constant state of dusk. Most people steer clear of the island, having heard tales of fearsome vampires feasting on the blood of the living, but intrepid skyfarers and treasure hunters eagerly seek out Medvecia's hidden inhabitants. Fall of the Dragon
Oden Traditional Auguste soup consisting of dried fish and seaweed, among other ingredients, stewed in fish stock. Although not usually served outside of the Auguste Isles, certain skyfarers speak of a special food stall in Agastia that serves the most heavenly oden.
Miyasato Tono Island's oldest sushi house. Originally known only to island locals, with the rising popularity of sushi over the recent years, it is now a prime dining spot that boasts long lines of customers from abroad. The most prominent theory behind the name is that "Miyasato" was derived from its location beside the most revered shrine (miya) in the village (sato). Kappa Summer Chronicle
Nimmus Island Numerous speedships were found abandoned on this island following the War, which led to the eventual birth of skyracing as a sport. The Nimmus Course is known for its harsh weather conditions, but it was shut down ten years ago when valuable ruins were discovered on the island. Platinum Sky II
Mafia The end of the War introduced a new problem to the skies: a power vacuum. Law and order was at an all-time low, and everyone was scrambling to take control. Factions—some representing entire islands, others representing entire bloodlines—began to form all over and assist each other through the difficult times. However, there were also those that survived mainly by dint of martial force, and they would become progenitors of the factions known today as the mafia. These militant factions eventually found themselves at odds with others that achieved stability through more peaceful means; their influence waned as trade and diplomacy between islands became more commonplace with the advancement of airship technology. They began to resort to illegal means to sustain themselves, and "mafia" became a general-purpose term for the criminal underworld of the skies. But at one point it connoted organized cooperation, not organized crime. In fact, some people even considered the mafia to be the neighborhood watch. Seeds of Redemption
Magasin Family In the western reaches of the Phantagrande Skydom there was a certain large town that flourished after the War. There, they traded in everything from foodstuffs of neighboring islands, to various goods left behind by the Astrals, to stolen articles from who-knows-where. During those times, these sorts of black markets popped up all over the place. Some nations would formally recognize the outstanding merchants and set rules and regulations of trade, effectively eradicating many illegitimate businesses. However, one in particular swooped in and filled the role of the shut-down businesses, taking over their products and trade routes, leading to exponential growth. Their methods grew more and more extreme with each passing day, leading to the Magasin crime family as it is known today. Seeds of Redemption
Mercenary's Guild A guild with its headquarters based in Valtz. Compared to other guilds, their rules and regulations are considerably more lax. Members are free to associate with the guild at their own discretion, though the distinction between members and nonmembers is difficult to define when anyone who calls themselves a mercenary is welcome to use the guild's services. Donna, the guild's founder and leader, pioneered the flexibility and freedom of the guild's policies. However, for those hoping to extensively use the guild's intermediaries to search for work, formally registering one's name with the guild is recommended. Sturm and Drang: A Mercenary's Life
Magmell Island One of several islands that forms the Istavion Kingdom, it's governed by the Royal Philos Institute, which serves as the only school in the kingdom. In general only students and school personnel are allowed onto the island, and they're forced to follow school policy while on campus. Such measures may seem harsh and draconian, but it fosters a healthy learning environment free from outside interference. Before the island was retrofitted for teaching, it housed various facilities of scientific research, one of which was an observatory.
Miraka Kikini Stew made from the milk of war beasts known as kahua taika. Other ingredients include spices, vegetables, meat of small animals, and an iota of generously donated kahua taika blood for that distinct flavor. Felluca couldn't stand the taste of miraka kikini, so she changed it into something else entirely to make it more palatable for outsiders visiting Kahua. Paliuli Pararaiha
Mataatua A special type of airship used in Kahua. Though smaller in size and faster than even speedships, their simple construction makes them prone to breaking apart after extended use. To prevent any more mataatua-related accidents, Queen Felluca has banned their use, keeping them under lock in a warehouse on the docks. Paliuli Pararaiha
Masks For those staying on Libertaria Island, they can take advantage of composite primal beast Zoetrope's ability, which recreates a person's memories in the form of a special mask. When these masks are worn by others, the wearer experiences the memory exactly as it had happened. It's a fun way to bond with people and see new things. However, in recent years, loud fans of more perilous experiences have spurred increasing demand for ever-thrilling memories, thus setting off a growing industry of for-profit mask sellers. Leadership turning a blind eye to mask-selling surely emboldens these traders.
Navis A secret organization that is said to be indirectly involved with virtually all crimes and affairs in the criminal underworld. The syndicate is comprised of an elite few who use ordinary people as pawns for their elaborate plans. While almost none know the true identity of Navis, it appears that Horoscopes and Accordants are its main targets. Rumors are that Navis is in search of the primal beast Argo, though the syndicate's intentions remain a mystery. Marionette Stars
Mole Troupe An underground theatre troupe that existed below ground in the town of Sazak. Around twenty years ago, the troupe was founded by four children: Douglas, Julia, Lois, and their leader Falsch. It disbanded, however, at the peak of its popularity. The Mole Troupe was recently revived by Falsch along with Michael, Sariel, and Azrael. For better or for worse, their unforgettable performance at the Sazak Festival has become a legend, severely criticized by several theatre newsletters; however, the show also received favorable reviews from a number of critics. Though the group is currently on hiatus, a script accredited to the Mole Troupe has been picked up by a number of other acting companies, the contents of its story garnering a fair amount of attention. The Magnificent Mole Troupe
Primal Beasts The greatest weapon the Astrals used in their invasion. These giant beasts are gifted with god-like power. After the War, they turned to crystal and settled into slumber, melding into every culture. Because these beasts only obey the Astrals, their awakening would be a calamity for the sky world and must be stopped.
Phantagrande The area where Zinkenstill, Port Breeze Archipelago, and others drift among the calm breeze. It is encircled by the Grim Basin on all sides, but due to so many prosperous islands, there are few who attempt to leave. However, in recent years the Erste Empire has been in frequent conflict with the peoples of many islands in their quest to dominate the Skydom.
Port Breeze A group of islands blessed with bountiful breezes. Gentle winds naturally blow across these islands thanks to the power of the primal beast Tiamat, growing the archipelago as a hub for skyfarer orders. The mainland is Eingana Island, and the metropolis at its center is the heart of commerce. Though the archipelago is calm and relaxing, the winds are constant and is considered one of the more chilly locations in the skydom.
Philosopher's Stone The sole substance able to circumvent the alchemic law of equivalent exchange. A complete philosopher's stone can act as catalyst to allow the infinite duplication of matter. The process to its completion, however, is far from simple. Only once it has passed through its five phases—albedo, nigredo, veriditas, citrinitas, and finally, rubedo—can it be used as a true philosopher's stone. Alchemist Astray
Rhem Kingdom Currently one of the most powerful countries in the Nalhegrande Skydom. This country started out as the duchy of Rhem during the era of the Torhid Kingdom, and its current king is the second son of the duke who formerly ruled. Due in part to Rhem's long history, royal blood and social standing are valued above all else here. The Violet Knight, one of the Luminary Knights, is also a distant relative of the Rhem family.
Ranger The traditional profession of ranger requires one to possess the knowledge and skills to survive the elements. There are some among these specialized naturalists who call themselves forest rangers. Before the prevalence of airships, forest rangers were the lifeline for local communities who depended on nature's bounty for sustenance. Ranger Sign: Bravo!
Royal Capital Feendrache The city of Feendrache is blessed with Sylph's protection. It is perhaps best known for its exquisite handicrafts and a miracle elixir created by Sylph that is said to grant immortality and everlasting youth. Its buildings are embellished with translucent adornments in the shape of Sylph's wings—adornments from which a soft glow embraces the entire city. A mighty river provides a bounty not only to Feendrache, but also to the monsters living in the wild expanse just beyond the city limits. Defender's Oath
PSC Formally known as the Platinum Sky Cup, this annual event is the biggest race to take to the skies. What sets this race apart is the allowance of weapons and other methods for obstructing opponents on the course—the only rule is you must use your own speedship. Skyfarers, speed freaks, engineers, and more gather from all over to claim fame and the big payout. Platinum Sky
Rashomon Research Vessel A special ship used by geologist Dr. Rashomon and his team. The ship is equipped for research in numerous fields of science and also contains special equipment needed for drilling and geological research. As the vessel often requires specialized mechanical modifications, it even comes with a resident engineer. Robomi (Side Story)
Priestess of the Dunes A girl who serves as a vessel for the Sand God Graphos, the only one who has the power to oppose the Rain God Manawydan. Each priestess's destiny is to sacrifice her life to unleash Graphos's power and seal Manawydan. Forbidden unnecessary contact with the outside world, this priestess traditionally spends her time confined to the castle. Priestess of the Dunes
Phidi Island Although this island is now idyllic and self-sufficient, it started as a settlement of skydwellers from another, nearby island who were brought here to combat overpopulation and food shortage issues. The land was cultivated almost immediately after an official assessment found the land to be fertile and the climate fair. As development was progressing, however, a snake-like primal beast that had been sleeping on the island since the time of the War awoke, bringing calamity to the immigrating population. At first the people tried to search for a way to live peacefully alongside the primal, but as causalities rose, this was deemed to be a futile pursuit. With all hope lost, the settlers were ready to abandon the project, but the Legendary Skyfaring Minstrels appeared and put the primal to sleep using the power of their music. Song of Serpent Island
Perfetto Island Known as the island of the arts, its residents engage in their crafts daily out of respect for the island's guardian deity, Arte. Be it painting, sculpting, or music, the islanders hold each other's creative talents in high regard. One morning a work of art is placed in the town square by an unknown creator. Rumor has it that a light-haired young man wearing a hat lowered over his eyes was spotted the night before, but the truth remains unclear. Together in Song
Primal Beast Ebisu This is the primal beast of blessings, whose giant body could be mistaken for an island as it migrates between the Sky Realm and the Crimson Horizon. It is a place where time and space cease to function as one would expect. Although this primal beast was created by the Astrals, blessings and luck abide by no authority—just as no one can master fate, no one can master Ebisu. Yet some would argue that Ebisu's existence represents a paradox, that it should not be able to govern luck either. Be that as it may, the name "Ebisu" has found its way into the Sky Realm, where it graces a variety of things in hopes of bringing good fortune.
Premium Friday A new custom dreamed up by Friday. The initiative proposes that, in order to live more fulfilled lives, everyone should knock off work early at the end of the month, on the evening that a beautiful golden star gleams in the heavens. People have been reluctant to embrace this bleeding-edge idea. For their sakes Friday created FRIED SHRIMP (a Fantastically Radical Idea for Ending Drudgery, Saving Human Resources from Infinite Mental Pain) to free workaholics from the chains of their clock-punching lives via the cleansing power of fire. Auld Lang Syne
Private Institute of Mysteria An imaginary school—no doubt based on the Mysteria Academy of Magic—born from the minds of the Lowain bros. Though the Tsubasa gang and the Big Three of Mysteria attend this school, the majority of the students are well-behaved and not the least bit baller. A Walk on the Wild Side
Palapagos Island A small, solitary island that sits among the Auguste Isles. Its remote location makes it inaccessible to most people, allowing a unique and distinct ecosystem to flourish. Some would even call Palapagos an insect paradise. Many unidentified creatures are said to dwell on the island, the mystery of which stirs the imaginations of adventurers all over. This, in turn, has given birth to countless legends about the island—some fact, some fiction. Detective Barawa and the Unfortunate Fortune
Phoenix Techniques A kind of martial art used by Aliza that specializes in kicks and is passed down through generations. Whoever inherits this martial art assumes control as head of the Clythe family, a noble family in the Valtz Duchy. It is said that the phoenix techniques originated from the art without a name practiced by monks at Tahar Temple, although the truth remains unknown to this day. Dancing Avengers: Flames of the Heart
Royal Knights of Feendrache This gathering of knights was formed from an unchanging system that allowed mostly those of knightly descent and family relations to join. Gunther led these knights well and united them with his sociable nature. After the sealing of the True Dragon Fafnir, the Royal Knights were reformed into the Order of the Black Dragons, and under Siegfried's leadership, their name became well known throughout the land. SIEGFRIED
Republic of Sui A country located on Isthra Island whose society is dominated by its hereditary nobility. The country was built on trade, and domestically produced metal and cloth goods are its key exports. Blood is everything in this country, and those of lowly birth or meager means lead a harsh life. Slavery is still practiced here. After losing the war with Zilantos, Sui is under its neighbor's rule. The Art of Mercy
Rose Theater A theater located in the heart of Verona. It was established by Juliet in hopes that the performances could soothe the souls of wearied citizens, and give them the strength to move toward a brighter future. Though originally overseen by the Capulet royal family at the time of its founding, the theater is now completely managed and operated by Verona's citizens. Good Night Till It Be Morrow
Rayle Island An island located on the fringes of the Phantagrande Skydom. It floats side-by-side with a slightly larger island, Frey; this is why Rayle is commonly known as the little brother island and Frey its big brother. Rayle's area is small and its population meager. It is largely isolated from other islands, excepting Frey. There are a pair of shrines on Rayle, and local myth claims that opening them would bring great disaster. Unbeknownst to the islanders, the shrines were built to seal off a rift leading to the Otherworld. Back when the world was young, Astrals and the very first primal beasts attempted, unsuccessfully, to erase this rip in the fabric of the skies. What the Astrals could not mend, they sealed with the shrines. They then created a great primal beast, Ryomen Sukuna, and appointed it keeper of the seal. Scent of Fate at Sky's End
Rie Famille An anti-government resistance with Supreme Commander Lukav and Adjutant Erika at its core. Formed by the orphan survivors of the Nightmare at Rire ten years ago, its members come from all different backgrounds, uniting under the Rie Famille banner because of Lukav's charismatic trait. Meanwhile, Erika’s naturally cheery disposition makes her the life and soul of the organization. Full Metal Man VII: The Last Mission
Patmos Island A small island located in the western region of the Phantagrande Skydom, consisting of a solitary country called the Kingdom of Patmos. Due to the vast wasteland at its heart, the residents live along the isle's outer perimeter. It was previously home to an Astral primal beast research laboratory during the War. Prayers
Sky Map A comprehensive guide to the world assembled from the scattered pieces of the Sky Map. It's said that this map will lead whomever owns it to wherever they wish without fail. It's regarded as a thing of legend, part of the mysterious legacy the Astrals left behind.
Skyfarer A general term for those who sail the skies in airships. It's said to be the job with the most freedom—and the most danger. Sky travel entails battles with all kinds of sinister creatures on just about a daily basis, so seasoned skyfarers are revered by all. Skyfarers form groups called crews. There are several famous crews in Phantagrande Skydom.
Sky Map Piece The mighty primal beasts possess these bits of map. The Sky Map can be acquired by gathering all of these pieces together. However, the primal beasts who possess the Sky Map fragments are nearly as powerful as gods, and each piece must be recovered from each beast.
Seven Luminary Knights Denotes the seven knights who possess supreme powers. The laws of nature that binds all others do not apply to these knights. For example, they can pass through the Grim Basin without the Sky Map. Some of the Seven rule over different skydoms. There may be one who has their eye on Phantagrande.
Tzaka the Great The current archduke of Valtz. He is renowned for his prowess as a blacksmith and mage. Cheerful and genuinely concerned with the happiness of others, he is especially popular. His combat technique combines his brawny Draph physique and knowledge of magic, blowing his enemies away with one swift punch. He is also Io's mentor in magic, and the passion he endowed her with can be seen from time to time in her craft.
Tramont Island Shrouded in mist all year long, the island has one village and very few inhabitants. In the past, Tramont shared some contact with neighboring islands. However, it became completely closed off with the arrival of the mist several decades ago. Skyfarers who've visited claim that the few people there are quite welcoming.
Silverwind Stretch A territory of the great land mass of North Vast, the most northern area of Phantagrande, with the Eoniho Mountains rising through its center. Due to its location, it is a peculiar area with even more peculiar beasts. A portion of the area, which includes the peaks of the Eoniho Mountains, is occupied by the Grim Basin.
Thunderswift Lord The secondary title of Albert, leader of the Sky Knights of Levin. With eyes like a storm and a sword as swift as thunder, he is considered second to none in the Kingdom of Levin. His fame has led many to think of the Sky Knights as Albert's own personal order, which subsequently becomes the source of a future tragedy. Eye of the Storm
Teachings of Kluger These teachings have been passed down on Kluger Island over the generations. They lend meaning to the island's existence and describe a way of life as opposed to a collection of lessons or precepts. The one person who understands the highest truth of the teachings each generation assumes the name Zeyen and passes the teachings on to the next generation. It is said that this truth has something to do with the primal beasts, and Zeyen in fact uses the power of the primal beasts to maintain the independence of the island.
Ti Icniuhtli Xolotl During the War there was a stalwart canine named Xolotl who fought bravely alongside his skydweller friend against the Astrals. Their bond was thought to be unbreakable until the Astrals tore that relationship apart. Xolotl wandered across Xochitl Island in depression, when he heard the welcoming words of the islanders—Ti Ichniuhtli Xolotl—which means "Friends forever, Xolotl." The maidens always start a show with this chant, but its true meaning has been forgotten after so many hundreds of years. Five Flowers of Fate
Sharom Island An island where monsters live under the primal beast Sharom, who has the power to suppress the will to fight. Sadly, this misunderstood land is seen to the outside world as the cursed monster capital where monsters roam free to terrorize all. Intelligent monsters and monsters who value peace hear of Sharom's power and come flocking. This collection of special monsters is currently governed by Queen Constance. While the population largely consists of monsters, a very small community of humans live on the island as well. Claudia and Dorothy are their descendants. The residents of Sharom Island lead such extremely simple lives that it is said the first ruler was chosen based on their ability to care for the Sharom flowers. Violet Violence
Sacred Treasures Tools created by the sovereign of the first family of a long-lost kingdom to seal away Ninetails. Nine exist in total, each with its own powerful effect. As it is nigh impossible for any single person to control them all, the first sovereign divided them up—one to each royal family. Because the power of Ninetails was used to create these, a sliver of her conscience is present in some of the sacred treasures. Each one chooses its bearer—those deemed unworthy are engulfed in unquenchable hellfire and quickly reduced to ashes. Forgiveness and Gratitude
Speedship A small airship designed for racing. It is lighter than traditional airships and typically only seats one to draw maximum speed. It is not suited for high-altitude flying, but its acceleration and drift surpass similarly-sized skyskimmers. It is also highly customizable. Platinum Sky
Sarya's Casebook "Chat Noir managed to lure us onto the Jewel Resort Casino Liner. Then the detective's close friend, Vas, suddenly went missing and we conducted an immediate search. Witnesses told us Vas stumbled into soup, wine, and a bucket of water, and unfortunately we deduced much too late that he was trying to cover his tracks. Had we not been preoccupied with catching Chat Noir, we would have seen through Vas's ruse much sooner, and the Phantom Thief would not have had us in the palm of his hand. Perhaps if I had shared these concerns with Barawa, we would have been better able to keep our wits about us."

—A passage from Sarya's casebook
Detective Barawa and the Jewel Resort Incident
Three Sacred Artifacts The Golden Sword, the Sunset Mirror, and the Night Jasmine Orb. These three artifacts contain the magic of the primal beast Magus—and the secrets to unlock it. Scattering Magic
Torhid Kingdom A kingdom that once unified and controlled Nalhegrande. The royal family of this country is composed of Draphs, many of whom are skilled combatants. Its history is ancient, stretching to even before the Astrals attacked. The Scarlet Knight of the Luminary Knights is an inherited position, a position which is passed (alongside its signature scarlet armor) from one Torhid crown prince to the next. Around five years ago, a large part of Starke Island was destroyed by an attack from the Great Wall, effectively neutralizing the kingdom. This event began to be known as "the divine retribution" by those who weren't privy to the truth.
Sable Island Holy Order The desert island of Sable has long suffered from a lack of natural resources, especially water. Relations between the villages scattered across the island used to be quite hostile, as they competed for resources or even stole them from one another. With the added challenge of damage from the Rain God Manawydan's periodic rampages, the island's development was slow. A group of young people, concerned for the island's future, approached a spirit who pitied the mortals hurt by the floods. The bond formed with this spirit gave rise to the tradition of the Sand God and Priestess of the Dunes temporarily sealing the Rain God. These young people, who became the Sable Island Holy Order dedicated to the Sand God, stood as a beacon of hope to the beleaguered citizenry. The order brought unity to the divided nation, and eventually came to wield political authority as well. Omar, the current high priest of the order, is well aware that the island's unity was born of opposition to the Rain God. He feared the disappearance of the Rain God could lead to civil discord and the loss of his position. What if the surviving Priestess of the Dunes were to rally people behind her and usurp the order's power and influence? Omar decided this eventuality must be avoided at all costs, and so he took advantage of Sara's poor health to confine her in the castle and surround her with people suspicious of her. Teardrop in the Sand
Sky Philharmonic Orchestra The oldest orchestra in all the skies, with a legacy spanning one hundred years. This famous ensemble is led by Nobiyo, the music director and conductor emeritus, and Narita, the conductor. Composed of musicians selected solely for their incredible talent, the members all hail from different backgrounds but have a deep respect for each other's cultures. Together in Song
Tandem Airborne Express A company engaged in the transportation of passengers and cargo between the islands of the Sky Realm. Their motto is, "Fly faster, fly safer." Recently their efforts have been focused on strengthening ties with partner companies on other islands to facilitate widespread distribution of local specialties and other goods. They have also put resources into humanitarian efforts such as the reconstruction of Mysteria Academy and the surrounding town after the devastation wrought by the forces of the Otherworld. The roots of this benevolence lie in the destruction caused when a Tandem airship exploded above Mysteria. In penance for that incident, the company erased all record of the Demon Reactor technology that caused the explosion. The Other Side of the Sky
Titan Suit The secret weapon serving as the backbone of the Holy Erste Empire's might. These suits were developed from substantial improvements made to a particular battlesuit prototype, the MK 28, manufactured originally during the former empire's glory days. Mass production of the suits began after leaders requested a rollout for infantry use, and widespread adoption started once outfitting procedures were simplified. Equipped with dark essence mechanisms in addition to durable mechanical components, the average skyfarer can't even put a scratch on them. Utilizing a system of interchanging parts, their versatility on the battlefield mustn't be understated.
Site Zero One of the Society's many bases, at a top-secret location in Phantagrande. Filled with talented scientists and researchers, it is the source of constant advancements in science and technology. It has no combat personnel of its own, so personnel from other bases are temporarily dispatched to Site Zero as needed to protect the noncombatant staff. The facility was obliterated by Versatile and is currently being reconstructed. Second Advent
Seal Weapons The weapons with which Vaseraga, Zeta, and other Society combatants have made contracts. Named by Alandus. These weapons can absorb a primal beast's power and kill it. They are in fact the dormant forms of automagods created by moondwellers. A command from a moondweller or other triggers can awaken the weapons, causing them to revert to their automagod forms. Like the automagods, the seal weapons have no wills of their own, but it would seem that Embrasque—contracted to Beatrix—is an exception. Embrasque responds strongly to Beatrix's words and emotions. Second Advent
Stag Beetle A popular insect loved by men and women of all ages. They normally reside in the forests but can also be spotted in remote villages.

Tahar Island A small island situated on the southern tip of Valtz Duchy. Its intermittent, raging sandstorms give pause to even the most able helmsmen, many of whom hesitate to brave the adverse weather for fear of damaging their vessel. Though this naturally hampers Tahar's foreign trade relations, the efforts of the Ahabak merchants' guild allow the islanders to enjoy a quality of life similar to that of skydwellers residing in other Valtz regions. On the other hand, this isolation has allowed a unique cultural identity to develop on the island. Towns are built out from the central Tahar Temple, the very symbol of the island, in a radial fashion. The many religious townsfolk have taken up the habit of expressing any heightened emotions through poetry while singing and dancing their hearts out—perhaps the very act that defines the people of Tahar. Dancing Avengers: Flames of the Heart

Kou and the Hollow Existence
Trancensia An herbal drug used in the Karm Clan's coming-of-age ritual. Trancensia releases the body's natural limiters, enhancing physical strength and sharpening the senses. After ingesting it, one is able to perceive the minutest of movements, quickly resulting in sensory overload.

Only those able to overcome the urges brought on by Trancensia are formally recognized as adults of Karm. Seeds of Redemption

She held immense magical power in her eyes, and just as neighboring islands depended on her perspicacity whenever crises arose, so the children depended on her powers to grow into responsible, hardworking adults. Many of the children who grew up under Rei's care went on to become masters of their trade, taking up positions pivotal to the development of nearby islands. But no matter where they might go, they would remain loving and respectful of Rei as a dear mother. Coupled with her magical powers, many came to see her as a central figure in the skies. She continues to command great respect in the present day and occasionally acts as a mediator between conflicting parties. Seeds of Redemption

True Dragon Blood Serving as the link between a true dragon's core and its vessel, this blood houses not only vast quantities of mana but even a fragment of the soul. That's why each true dragon's blood has a different effect. In the majority of cases, individuals infused with the blood make use of the mana to boost their body's natural healing capabilities. However, the effects can greatly differ: some are poisoned by the blood infusion and end up much worse off, while others are strengthened and even have long-standing ailments cured. Because true dragons rarely get along with other life-forms well enough to offer them their blood however, most live their lives never knowing the effect their blood may have. The Dragonblood War
Shinsengumi A special police force in Edo led by commander Isao Kondo and vice-commander Toshiro Hijikata.

The Six Dragons The element-birthing wedges that allow the world to maintain its shape. When the Omnipotent first formed the Sky Realm, these dragons came about as a way to define the world's laws. Strictly speaking, they do not serve the Omnipotent and are directly linked to the Sky Realm (unbeknownst to those in the skies, the Astral Realm and the moon also have their own respective wedges).

Though the four primarchs later created by the Astrals affect the elements in different ways from the Six Dragons, the two groups are akin to two sides of the same coin and thus have an influence on each other. Temporal feedback from the world gave each of the Six Dragons a unique personality, a result in accordance with the destructive nature of the sky god. At the time of the Sky Realm's creation, there were many more than just six wedges. Those lost over time have either had their roles filled by existing wedges, or simply resulted in a distortion in the world. It is the true dragons who must attune those distortions, applying pressure to the world to prevent its collapse. The nature of each true dragon differs depending on the distortion it covers.

Phew. I tried to give that a proper write-up, but basically what it comes down to is that they all do love the skies, so I doubt they'll go off trying to dye it all in their own color. Like, how boring would a monocolor world be anyway, you know? Besides, the world's got some built-in redundancies—it can spring back from a lot... Though I have to admit things have been getting kind of dicey lately... Well, gotta run now! Till next time! Orologia out!

Thousand Sunny This ship is a brigantine that features a square-rigged sail in the front and a gaff sail in the back, like a sloop. It was designed by Franky and constructed with wood from the world's strongest—and perhaps rarest—type of tree, Jewel Tree Adam. Upon seeing the vessel's figurehead, the president of a renowned company of shipwrights remarked that the ship will "[sail] through the dangers of the thousand seas, shining happily like the sun." He suggested the name Thousand Sunny, which the crew instantly adopted much to the dismay of Franky, who had his heart set on a lion motif. ONE PIECE FILM RED to BLUE

The Detective of Venase A work by Falsch and members of the Mole Troupe that reinterprets a dramatic comedy, shifting the focus from the character Shylo being an antagonist to a tragic character.

Currently, "The Detective of Venase" runs at a variety of locations. Many places have opted to adopt the new interpretation of Shylo, but keep the original depictions of other characters in the story. The Magnificent Mole Troupe
Simulation A world given form by Orologia's permutations that, as a rule, is only observable by its creator. Potential alternate versions of reality can be created this way by simply changing the parameters, but to enact any changes in reality requires direct interference by Orologia. While it takes less than an instant to observe a simulation, that slight amount of time nevertheless passes in the real world, meaning there is a limit to how long Orologia can search for routes that avoid the Sky Realm's ruin. Although the effect is negligible compared to reality, Orologia and simulations do in fact influence each other, which eventually caused them to become intertwined and made Orologia's power go out of control. and you

The War A war that broke out between the skydoms and the Astrals long ago. Through this drastic conflict, the people were able to gain back rule of their world from the Astrals and change the course of history. Unfortunately, almost all details of the War are now lost, yet its effects can still be seen shaping society even today.
Weapons Originally there were no means for transport, causing each society to form independently of each other. Without things like international conflict or threats, weapons development progressed exceedingly slowly. However, upon the invasion of the Astrals, every society was forced to arm themselves. Weaponry evolved even further thanks to the engineering left behind by the Astrals. It is said that the Astrals became the catalyst for modernization.

Watermelon Splitting A traditional ceremony from Jin's hometown said to ward off summer heat. Long ago people believed that evil spirits worked to destroy people's health by subjecting them to seasonal heat waves. Villagers tricked these spirits into possessing special mannequins made from watermelon—the red flesh of which resembled human muscle. Once inside the fruit, villagers would cut the dummy in twain, rending not only the melon but the offending spirit as well. Over the years this ancient ritual was transmitted from island to island, until people all but forgot its original purpose. Nowadays it's recognized on the beaches of Auguste as a fun vacation activity. A Slice of Summer

Vicious Three / Grudge of the Scapedog Lyrics:

Hunting down strays, hurling sticks and stones.
This town, a curse decays, all because of
the mastermind, the mastermind.

Screams incite, condemn to silence.
Who's next to bear the curse?
Step up! Step up! Step up!

W-A-R, wailing in ecstasy.
W-A-R, the curse's source, no one realizes but me.
W-A-R, sprawled in a cesspool.
W-A-R, a broken dog doesn't bark, yet bares its teeth. Graaaaah!

No one mourns for a stray dog's death.
If only it had a place to call home, it wouldn't be here.
No one prays in this silent town.

Don't go looking for the curse, and you'll make it out alive.
The Doss! End of the Line Farewell Tour
World Matter and World Vector Laws of physics from the time of Robomi and Kenji—laws cut off from the Sky Realm of today. There exists a fixed amount of world matter, which is the source of all souls. The dominant life-form—as dictated by the food chain—decides the direction that the world should take. A positive direction leads to a positive world vector, and vice versa. The ancients made such incredible scientific advancements that their population continued to explode even after using up all available world matter. To balance things out, world antimatter came about and gave birth to abominations, naturally leading the world toward a negative vector. Robomi: Epic Clash - Super Robo Gigantes vs. Arbitrator Zooey

Yurius's Suicide Device A device created by Yurius from special ammunition and dark essence. Using information leaked out of a certain society, he made ammunition that was lethal against primal beasts and configured dark essence to serve as its trigger once it sensed rampaging Astral power. He took test samples into the field during a routine monster extermination request, and what followed was a small fire that scared the nearby citizens. It was quickly extinguished, and Yurius claimed in his written report that a bolt of stray lightning had caused it—much to Albert and Mina's confusion, as the skies were clear that day. Soon after the incident, Yurius completed the final version of his device. False Heroes
