One day, as I charted the mysteries of Nabata, I came across the most amazing village... It was unbelievable, but in that place, humans and dragons lived together in cooperation.

Arcadia (Japanese: 理想郷 Utopia), also known as the village of dragons[1] is a hidden mixed human-dragon settlement in the Nabata desert of the Missur Peninsula.

History

For more context see the timeline of Elibe.

Arcadia was founded by dragons and humans that did not wish to partake in the Scouring. To avoid the war, a hidden village deep in the desert was created and hidden by sandstorms. It successfully remained a secret to the majority of the outside world for a millennia after the scouring.

Some 500 years after the Scouring,[2] Nergal and Athos came across the village in their wanderings of the Nabata wastelands. Welcomed by the villagers, they settled in the village to study the ancient dragon knowledge held within.[3] Eventually, Nergal's studies take a turn down a darker path and he and Athos have a moral quarrel, resulting in a fight between the two. Nergal, gravely injured by Athos, abandons the village and returns to his work in secret, never sullying Arcadia with his presence again.[4]

When Nergal finally left hiding, about another 500 years after the fight with Athos, Hawkeye, the guardian of the time, assisted Eliwood's group and Athos with the task of defeating Nergal.

During the Disturbance of Bern the village was discovered and attacked by Bern, to which the Lycian Alliance aided in defending the village. After the succesful repulsion, Igrene, the current guardian of the time, offered to travel with the Lycian Alliance to defend the village and learn more about the outside world. The young Divine Dragon Fae also followed the group and left the village in secret.

After the war Roy took Idenn to Arcadia in hope she could recover from her spiritually shattered condition. At the conclusion of The Binding Blade the dragon elder expresses concern for her recovery. Outside the village, Fae is playing with Idenn, who laughs when a fruit falls and hits Fae. Fae, excited by Idenn's emotional progress--this is the first emotional thing Idenn has done since arriving--runs into the village to tell the elder of this.
