Everto de Ivalice
A land carved from the remains of the Last God, Nihon is a land of desolation and beauty. The land is tough to cultivate and the harsh changes in weather breed a people who survive the many Storms.
Built upon the foundations of Honor and Service, Nihon hosts a culture always in conflict between the need for the self and the need for the selfless. Honor and Shame vie for the heart of Nihon and all it’s people, though only the Bushi, the Warrior Caste, live between the extremes of duty and selfishness.
Occupying the island before humans were the Oni, beings shrouded in mystery. How they came to be is as much unknown as why they desire to destroy humans. They have ever struck from the shadows until the recent Northern Oni War when they brought open massacre. Through sacrifice, diligence and bloodshed they were beaten back, some say to extinction. Rumors persist and some of the Bushi surmise that the mightiest of the Oni, the The Oni Lords, still roam Nihon and beyond.
