INIGUTHIA is a country located in the northwestern region of Naestrirea. They have three major districts, each named after a cardinal sin: Ira, Invidia, and Luxuria. It is usually raining or snowing in Iniguthia.
The creatures who inhabit this area are pixies and dark angels, which are fairies and angels who have succumbed to darkness. The main language spoken here is English, though there are some Germanic influences within their culture as well. The lore behind Iniguthia is inspired by Judaic and Germanic mythology.
INIGUTHIA WAS CREATED BY THE DEVIL, also known as the Serpent. As the Devil counters the Hierophant, so does Iniguthia to Aeyaviel. The Devil has seven disciples. Each are manifestations of the seven deadly sins; adverse values that led them (who originally were pure angels) to being cast out of the heavens as a result of their temptations. Crowned the Princes of Hell, these notorious demons became the patron deities of Iniguthia's citizens.
When the Princes of Hell rose up against Naestrirea, they threatened the balance between the realms and blurred the line between the land of the living and the dead. Because of this threat, a rare act of union among every nation occurred, leading them to stand together to expel the evil of these demons brought. Their efforts consolidated into one spell that shackled the souls of the Princes of Hell, preventing them from rising ever again with the full strength of their power.
Because darkness can never be truly destroyed, their souls splintered off a small piece of their true essence and took hold in the seven fallen angels who currently rule the Dark Court. With this small essence trapping them in a dormant sleep, and if they would ever reawaken, it would bring the rise of the Devil once again.

KHAISITHA is a country located in the northwestern region of Naestrirea, which lies the region of Qinqiu. It is mainly mountainous terrain, the Hawk and Falcon Tribes live in this area. Zeru and Riyen were the first avians to lead the Hawk Tribe and Falcon Tribes. Over the mountains, to the northeast rests Huafeng. The Crow and Zhen Tribes, led by Cati and Gatek, reside in this area because it is far removed from the rest of the country. No one cares to enter, out of disdain for these tribes.
The south is Jiangguan. The Sparrow and Green/Blue Bird Tribes live here. They are the ones who remain in Khaisitha because they have weaker bodies compared to the hawks or falcons. In the center is Jiaoxing, the capital of Khaisitha. The Peng and Owl Tribes serve as the guards to the Yûmáo Palace. And because the Crane Tribe are considered the wisest, and therefore upper-class, they also live in the capital. The only luan lives in the capital as well.
The climate is primarily warm like spring, about 70 degrees Fahrenheit as it is a suitable place for birds. The temperature never falls below 70 degrees. Khaisitha has many trees and the land is mostly undeveloped for the most part as the birds reside in villages amongst the trees. The creatures who inhabit this area are bird shapeshifters. The main languages spoken here are English and Chinese. The lore behind Khaisitha is inspired by birds of myth in Chinese mythology.
IN 1 BC, KHAISITHA was created by the Goddess of Light, Meihui. Meihui created Khaisitha to give Wuzhen faithful messengers, which led to the birth of a new race: the avians. It is believed that Meihui mated with a red-crowned crane, one of the most powerful avians in Khaisithan history, and that Khaisithans are descendants of the rooster of the Chinese Zodiac.
Starting with three, Khaisitha was ruled by an oligarchy: Cirasea (Green Bird), Zachariah (Hawk), Ivory (Crane). There are no written records about these three individuals because avians lived life in their bird form all the time and did not possess the ability to write. With the help of Wuzhen, they obtained literacy and knowledge of the outside world and became more comfortable in their human forms. Seeing promise in the new species, Meihui created different avian subspecies. Each avian subspecies went on to form their own tribe.
ZHENNIAO AND CROW UPRISING
IN 788 AC, KHAISITHA WAS ENGAGED in battle by Aquitas (later renamed the Ceosal Kingdom) in what was to be called the Mer-Avian War. For several years, the avians of Khaisitha had been stealing food from Mer territory due to complications of the drought and unrest in their own land. While these battles occurred, the avians were dealing with uprisings among the Zhenniao and Crows. The Zhenniao had the potential to wipe out a nation with their poisonous feathers and the Crows were considered bottom feeders for their scavenging behavior. An armistice was drawn so that each nation could focus on the troubles that they faced internally. Protests and riots persisted as flocks were attacked.
Reports of injured avians began circulating describing how avians had every feather plucked from their bodies prior to death. An avian without feathers was considered shameful, so it created significant resentment and anger towards the merpeople. It took nearly a century to adjust to the Zhenniao and the Crows as their people, but there are still some people who are hesitant to interact with members of these tribes.
The process was completed in several installments. First, the people had to understand that both parties are capable of feeling the same emotions. Second, they had to rid themselves of the fear. The Council addressed this by introducing a small number of Zhenniao and Crows to show them that they weren't inherently horrible creatures. Needless to say, the pride of some of the older avians was hurt, but they learned to see things from a different perspective with time.
MIYARENE is a country located in the southwestern region of Naestrirea, and is part of the Isles of Calypso. The climate in the Isles of Calypso is neutral and changes along with the four seasons. However, in Miyarene it is cooler to accommodate nymphs of the water. Temperatures can get as high as 50 degrees Fahrenheit, but fall below 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
Miyarene is where naiads, nymphs of the water, live. Their main towns are Thalassa and Lyra, which are named after their former tribe leaders, and they often spend time convening with sirens who live in the surrounding waters. The current tribe leaders are the spirits of the three oceans in the realm: Nomia of Nightshade Ocean, Rhodope of Raeyeong Ocean, and Alcinoe of Asura Ocean.
The only creatures who inhabit this area are various types of naiads, spirits of nature. The main language spoken here is English, though there are some Greek influences within their culture as well. The lore behind Miyarene is inspired by Greek mythology.
THE SORCERESS GODDESS, CALYPSO, CREATED MIYARENE in 1 BC, as a safe haven for all nymphs. It was meant to be a place protected from deities as they were often the victims of their affections. There is a protective barrier enclosing the Isles, meant to lure eligible mates to allow the nymphs to reproduce.
MUTSUSHINA is a country located in the eastern region of Naestrirea. It is a highly elevated nation. The air is crisp and cool. It can snow here, but they typically use a shield to prevent snow from hitting their village because it can be difficult to generate foxfire in the cold. There are lush forests on the edges of Mutsushina. They have a high abundance of herbs that can induce and treat amnesia. These are heavily guarded by various kitsune due to the detrimental effects they impose.
There are four towns: Tawara, Matsunai, Kikotoro, and Shirakawa. The Blossoming Fox Clan reside in Shirakawa, the Wicked Fox Demon Clan live in Matsunai, and the Holy Fox Clan are in Tawara. The capital of Mutsushina is Kikotoro.
The only creatures who inhabit this area are kitsune, which are also referred to as fox spirits. There are three kinds of kitsune that reside in this region: zenko, nogitsune, and tenko. The main language that is spoken are English and Japanese. The lore behind Mutsushina is inspired by Japanese and Chinese mythology.
MEIHUI, THE GODDESS OF LIGHT, CREATED MUTSUSHINA, and the first kitsune, Inari, in 100 BC. Although Meihui had a hand in the creation of the kitsune, the fox spirits worship Inari. From this, three clans were created. The zenko (fox spirits who have not yet achieved Celestial status), the nogitsune (fox demons), and the tenko (Celestial nine-tailed foxes). Members of the zenko clan may cultivate their abilities and complete an examination in order to be considered a new member of the Tenko, or divine clan.
In 100-200 AC, the kitsune were branded as demons and ostracized from the rest of the realm. While some were killed for the magic in their tails, most individuals killed them with the belief that they didn't have the right to walk the lands, and with equal rights nonetheless. During this time, Hirayama Sosuke, a Celestial nogitsune, was the ruling alpha who made decisions on behalf of all kitsune. While his decisions were made in the best interests of Mutsushina, it also created significant divide between the zenko and nogitsune clans.
In 199 AC, Sosuke wanted to find a way to cement the kitsune presence in the realm and ensure their safety. As a result, he began experimenting with forbidden magic. He was successful in dividing a nine-tailed fox into two beings: a female nogitsune (Tui) and a male zenko (Jin). Together, they were known as Jintui.
