|“||The khans of Ferox prefer battle to politics. Or rather, battle IS their politics.||”|
Ferox (Japanese: フェリア Felia) is the northern nation of the Ylissean continent. The largest of the three nations by far, it borders both Ylisse and Plegia to the south. In the continent's distant past, the territory currently held by Ferox used to include the kingdoms of Khadein and Aurelis, the Marmotord desert, and the untamed lands and various landmarks which comprised Anri's Way.
Though a single nation for all intents and purposes, Ferox is divided into two kingdoms, East Ferox and West Ferox, collectively referred to as Regna Ferox. Each kingdom is ruled by a khan, and at any given time, only one khan has total control over both kingdoms; the current ruling khan is determined in gladiatorial tournaments held every few years, in which the khans are represented by champions typically foreign to Ferox. A militant nation by nature, the people of Ferox greatly value strength and blunt honesty, reflected in both their system of government and in their strong army. Despite being polar opposites in the values they hold, Ferox has excellent relations with Ylisse, their pacifist neighbours, and so with the encroaching threats of Plegia and the Risen, their assistance in protecting Ylisse was sought by its Prince Chrom.
Notable locations in Ferox
Arena Ferox is where tournaments are held to determine the next khan to be in power. Many spectators gather in the stands to watch the ensuing battles.
Port Ferox existed in Archanean times as Furia Harbor (Japanese: フリアの港 Port Fulia), which may be the country's namesake, however this is somewhat lost in translation due to name changes. It is where Alm and Celica dock upon arriving to Archanea.
