The Erste Empire, a voracious fire spreading across the world

The Erste Empire is a militaristic nation that wants to wrap the entire skydom in the banner of the Emperor. Barely ten years have passed since the nation was transformed into a grand empire thanks to its military might. The empire plans to use the remnants of the Astrals' legacy, the primal beasts and the primal crystals, in their march of conquest. Researching Lyria is also part of that plan.

The reigning emperor is shrouded in mystery. The actual governing powers were granted by the empire to the Seven Luminary Knights, seven peerless individuals of the land. One of those seven is the self-assured Black Knight, a figure who will test the wills of Lyria and our hero time and time again.
