Valla (Japanese: 透魔王国, Invisible Kingdom) is an illusory kingdom that exists in a world separate from Hoshido and Nohr. The only consistent entrance into Valla is by jumping into the Bottomless Canyon, which sits between Hoshido and Nohr right at the border of the two kingdoms. This entrance opens and closes periodically every few decades, when the skies between Hoshido and Nohr switch places.
The kingdom boasts strange geometry, as the land and sky itself seems to be rent in pieces, and floats about seemingly at random. It is unknown if the kingdom was always like this or Anankos did this when he destroyed it. Another strange feature of the kingdom is the very powerful curse placed over it, also created by Anankos. Anyone who speaks of Valla outside its borders vanishes into seafoam, never to be heard from again. The age of this curse is somewhat unspecified, but there seems to be no written or historical knowledge of the kingdom outside of it, so presumably the curse is quite old.
Long before the events of Fire Emblem Fates the kingdom was a prosperous place under its lineage of kings and the guidance of Anankos. However, Anankos fell to degeneration like the Archanean dragons and became crazed. After Anankos killed the Vallan king and the kingdom's inhabitants, Arete, the king's wife, and her child Azura, along with Mikoto and her child Corrin fled the ruined kingdom. Arete made her way into the Nohrian upper class as one of Garon's wives and Mikoto ended up in Hoshido and wed Sumeragi.
During his reign, Anankos formed an army comprising of soldiers raised from the dead, similar to how Grima formed the Risen. These soldiers are surrounded by a violet aura and will turn semi-invisible when attacking. They will not perform their victory animations after defeating an enemy, instead resuming their neutral pose after doing so. The Vallite soldiers' portraits give them glowing purple eyes and the aforementioned violet aura.
