“The Heavensong Empire has many territories beyond the seas that circle the land of Aurania, but the heart of the empire beats within its shores. The members of its army each wear a golden animal mask that designates their role and discipline.”
Official website

The Heavensong Empire is one of four nations that inhabit the continent of Aurania. It is ruled by Empress Tenri, and sits on the West in a desert land with bright sands.

Commanders[edit]

The Heavensong Empire is ruled by the wise Empress Tenri, and mother to the heir, Prince Koji, a genius mechanic responsible for the nation's greatest creations, including Tenko, the battle puppet. Their massive army is lead by Tenri's loyal general, Ryota.

The locations of Heavensong

Cuckoo Oasis[edit]

An oasis in central Heavensong where Shiba Inu are bred before being transported to the grasslands.[1]

Dragon's Graveyard[edit]

An area of desert south of the Imperial City where the skeletons of many dead dragons rest. The sand from this area is used to make glass razors for Heavensong's Harpoon Ships, and the restored skeletons of dragons were used to model the Ryuu MK I.[1]

The Gilded Desert[edit]

Northeastern Heavensong is dominated by this vast desert, on the northern half of the border with the Lost Leagues. This is where Heavensong's Lionblades are given rigorous training.[1]

Glittering Peaks[edit]

A massive mountain range in southern Havensong, rich in gemstones that give it the name. Heavensong's Hawkeyes practise archery atop these.[1] Within the mountains are the Glittering Mines, presumably where gemstones are extracted.

An area south of Talon Lake, on the southern half of the border with the Lost Leagues. It is home to the Kappa, an independent clan loyal to the Empire.[1]

The capital city of the Heavensong Empire, on the northeast coast of Aurania, and the home of Empress Tenri and Prince Koji. The Oni MK I—predecessor of the Oni MK II—are regularly used for construction within the city.[1]

The desert coast east of the Dragon's Graveyard. Here, Heavensong's Heronguard train by spear-fishing for sailfish, and the Merfolk collect brightly coloured shells from its shores.[1]
