An Overview Of The World And Rulers Of Final Fantasy Type-0

By Ishaan . August 2, 2011 . 10:46am

Final Fantasy Type-0 focuses on four nations — Rubrum, Milites, Lorica and Concordia — and a war sparked by a struggle for crystals. Here’s a look at each, along with a leader or prominent character from each nation.


Rubrum Peristylium Suzaku:


Rubrum is the country the characters you play as hail from. It controls the Suzaku crystal, located in the centre of the Peristylium Suzaku magic academy. Rubrum is a magically-inclined nation. When the Milites empire invades, the students at the academy try to fight back.



Khalia Chival VI:


Khalia Chival is the headmaster of the Suzaku academy, and ruler of Rubrum. In his younger days, he was known as a great wizard, and now has the confidence of others around him.



Milites Empire:


Final Fantasy Type-0’s story is about a war between nations, which is sparked by an invasion from the Milites empire. The Milites empire, home to the Peristylium Byakko, is highly technologically-developed, unlike Rebrum, which is more magically-inclined. Milites have developed a weapon called the Crystal Jammer, which renders Suzaku’s crystal powerless.



Cid Aulstyne:


In Type-0, Cid is the leader of the Milites empire. He also appears to be a bad guy. Cid is trying to seize all four crystals — each nation holds one — in the world of Type-0. He breaks a treaty signed between the four nations, which sparks a war.



Lorica Alliance:


Lorica possesses the Genbu crystal and is home to the Peristylium Genbu. They’ve harnessed the power of crystals to improve their own bodies. As a result, the people of Lorica have bigger physiques than normal, and can stand up to magic. Gilgamesh hails from Lorica.





Ah, here we go. Gilgamesh, of Lorica, is a L’cie with the power of the Genbu crystal. You’ll fight him as a boss in Final Fantasy Type-0.



The Kingdom of Concordia:



The Kingdom of Concordia is where the Souryu Peristylium and Souryu crystal are. It appears that all members of Concordia’s government are female. Concordia’s people aren’t physically big and fight using long spears. They can also summon dragons.





Andoria is the queen of Concordia and the only one who can communicate with the Souryu crystal and its physical manifestation, the Queen Dragon. Known for being just and fair, Andoria honours and upholds the law.

  • This game looks very promising. Could be one of the best PSP game if not the best.

    • joesz

      Let’s not forget about Crisis core.That game made me cry like one of those girls on Gossip girl.

  • The graphics are phenomenal. And this Cid looks badass.

  • Wackoramaco87

    With all these details, it doesn’t seem like one game is big enough for the all the nations- it would be interesting to see more games taking place here (with Am and EU releases, of course!).  

    • Syltique

      You’re right.  They changed the name because they want to make this a series.  And they already own the website rights for Type-0 through Type-10.

      • Wackoramaco87

        Whoops, looks like I’m a wee bit behind on the news. Thanks for the clarification! =)
        Wow, they’ve already registered for Type-0 through Type-10? Talk about ambitious and positive!

  • “Rebrum” and “They’ve have”


  • Learii

    cid is a bad guy in this  huh

  • kevinposta

    This game looks very rich graphically for being a PSP game. I can see a lot of detail in backgrounds and atmosphere.
    I won’t read about story since I don’t wanna spoil myself though

  • IceRomancer

    I love how all four nations use their respective crystals in different ways!

    Concordia sounds like a nation of loli dragoons :3

  • imaguni

    I can’t help but be reminded of Troia when I read about Concordia…

  • cmurph666

    WoW~! I could play this game forever…~!

  • epy

    My long experience with JRPGs tells me one thing about the plot of this game just by looking at the pictures:

    Khalia Chival VI is behind it all!

    • IceRomancer

      He does kinda look a little on the evil side…

  • sandra10

    I haven’t been reading everything about Type-0, but why would the ogre people (Gilgamesh and the like) attack people from Suzaku?

    Hopefully Square has actually struck gold with Type-0 because the gameplay, soundtrack, and visuals all look top notch. I’d be very disappointed if the story and the characters are rather boring and trite.

    • its just a shame its coming out so late in the PSPs lifespan although I imagine it will do well in Japan though…

  • am loving the art deriction  on this so much and how the names of the nations are base on FFXI sky godsnames.

    it get’s more interesting everytime i hear more news!

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    So Rubrum is Hogwarts, Milites are Neo-Nazis, Lorica is the land of Giants, and Concordia is the land of Lolis… Got it.

    In seriousness, I do like the variety between the countries and actually hope those Type-1, 2, and 3 trademarks SE filed a while back pan out to making this new series something big.

  • is that…is that an army of Safer Sephiroths?  On the Concordia metropolis pic

    friggin terrifyingly huge

  • PrinceHeir

    amazing stuff O____O

  • Did you really mean that Gilgamesh is an actual L’cie? So, does that mean that there are Fal’cie in this game…?
