Locations[edit | edit source]

Azha Village- The source of the Flame Ice (cooling material) used to run the empire, a poor village that survives by communal living. Aside from Flame Ice, it was also a site for the finest Iron Ores and a major mining village for the empire.

Nihal Desert- Vast and treacherous, this desert stretches from the edge of the empire right to Azha village and all the surrounding area. Filled with sands storms and blistering heat, only a fool would venture there unaided.

Mintaka, the Imperial Capital

Greater Mintaka / Imperial Fortress- Former Alfard capital city, then converted to a massive fortress.

  • Emperor's Residence

Dark Service HQ- The headquarters of Baelheit ‘s personal forces The Dark Service.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name Alfard is derived from the star Alpha Hydrae, a star located in the constellation Hydra, which has the traditional name "Alphard" or "Alfard". The name Alfard means "the solitary one" in arabic.
  • Alfard is brightest star in the constellation Hydra, the largest of all the constellations in the sky. This may coincide with the fact that in-game, Alfard is the most prosperous of the Five Great Nations.
  • Azha is H Eri, meaning "the hatching place"; and Mintaka is Delta Orionis, part of the belt of Orion.
  • Lastly, Nihal is Beta Leporis, in Arabic being "quenching their thirst". This seems like a more direct reference to the use of the name Nihal in the game, applied to a desert.
