"Of the Sky, From the Sky, For the Sky"

In the central region of Abalathia's Spine, that great mountain range that spans Aldenard from east to west, can be found the forbidding highlands of Coerthas and the Holy See of Ishgard. The archbishop of the church, while leading his people in the teachings of Halone, the Fury, rules also as the nation's sovereign.

Ishgard's formidable army of knights wages constant battle against its mortal enemies, the dragons. Faced with ever more aggressive attacks from its serpentine foes, as well as an unprecedented spell of bitter cold, the theocracy's days are dark indeed.

Matters have grown so grave as to prompt the archbishop and his advisors to consider throwing open the heretofore sealed gates of Ishgard and calling for outside aid. [1]

Among the noble houses of Ishgard's class structure, four are known as "high houses" which have considerably more power than the rest:

House Durendaire symbolized by the Bell

House Fortemps symbolized by the Unicorn

House Haillenarte symbolized by the Rose

House Dzemael symbolized by the Tower/Rook

The latter of which holds the most influence. Ishgard's flag depicts the symbol of each house.

The Guardian Deity of Ishgard is Halone the Fury.
