The Isle of Masks was likely part of a group of isles, ruled by several lords. It may be near the Ivory Isles. The Isle of Masks sank beneath the waves after a night of vengeful magic, during which fires bubbled up from the sea.[1][2] A sword was forged in these flames.[3]

Inhabitants[edit]

Yurnero and his people once lived on the Isle. They, including Yurnero's family, died when the Isle sunk into the ocean.[4]

The dragon Akakiryu and the blacksmith Sabasteen may be from the Isle of Masks, as well as the Kuur-Ishiminari.

Crex vo Gali, a mysterious entity that devours "mulch" made of flesh, was also found on the Isle.[5]

Certain parts of the Isle are highlands, and are native to mountain wolves and rams,[6] and other great beasts.[7]

Culture[edit]

Like its name suggests, its inhabitants wear masks. Warriors also wear kataginu and hakamas.[8][9] The Temple of Masks is likely located on the Isle of Masks, and the Maker of Masks is worshiped there.[10] A boar god is also revered.[11]

Healing magic is practiced on the island as part of its many local rituals.[12] On the Isle, death is said to have many watchful eyes.[13]

The Juggernauts[edit]

The Isle of Masks has a tradition of ritual and disciplined swordsmanship. Those who embody this tradition are called Juggernauts. The last Juggernaut is Yurnero.[1]

Rebirth[edit]

After Yurnero's mask was cracked in half by Sven, the ancient spirits that laid within vowed to restore the Isle of Masks, and bring back its people.[14][15]

Trivia[edit]

  • The Isle of Masks, along with its Juggernaut class, resemble the society of feudal Japan.
