Plegia Castle







Plegia (pronounced /⁠ˈplɛd͡ʒiə⁠/[key][1];Japanese: ペレジア Perezia) is a kingdom located in the south-west of the continent of Ylisse. It borders the Halidom of Ylisse to the east, and Regna Ferox to the north.


In the distant past, the territory now comprising Plegia was part of Dolhr, Macedon, Altea, Gra, and Grust. The ruler of Plegia is the King, who, at the beginning of the events of Fire Emblem Awakening, is Gangrel.

Plegia is controlled by the Grimleal, a cult that worships the Fell Dragon Grima, as the Fell Dragon, in opposition to Naga, who is worshipped by the people of the other nations of Ylisse and Valm. The Grimleal seek to resurrect the Fell Dragon, via a vessel whose body is capable of accepting Grima's power. Despite the Grimleal controlling the country, ordinary citizens do not worship Grima, living in fear of Grima and his Grimleal followers.[2]

Prior to the events of Awakening, the previous Exalt of Ylisse—the father of Emmeryn, Chrom, and Lissa—waged war on the Grimleal in Plegia. The war ended with his death, and damaged the relationship between Plegia and Ylisse, and the Ylissean royalty and their subjects, that Emmeryn had sought to repair. However, Gangrel sought only conquest, a desire that led both him and Emmeryn to their downfalls.
