■ World

Kingdom of Trei’kur

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Compared to the Kingdom of Resulia, it is difficult to say the land of the Kingdom of Trei’kur is blessed. Much of the land is covered in desert, and much of it is infertile. Given such, the Kingdom of Trei’kur has a great desire for the Kingdom of Resulia’s land, and throughout history has often waged war with the country. And now, for that same reason, it has waged war again.

East Trei’kur

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Located in the easternmost part of the Kingdom of Trei’kur, East Trei’kur is a border town connected to the Western Dakaav Range, which becomes the Kingdom of Resulia. Compared to the Kingdom of Resulia, it is difficult to say the land of the Kingdom of Trei’kur is blessed, and the town of East Trei’kur compared to the streets of the Kingdom of Resulia has a dark atmosphere all around. Also, given the Kingdom of Trei’kur’s many wars and the fact that this is a border town, the town is stationed with military encampments and armaments and exudes the atmosphere of a forefront town.
