Final Fantasy XII : Revenant Wing Storyline
A few locations in the Ivalice of Final Fantasy XII return in Revenant Wings, along with a new setting: Lemurés. Described in the official website as a legendary Purvama (Floating Continent) raised into the skies by the god Feolthanos long before the events of the game, this land is ruled by a magical stone known as the "Sacred Crystal" which erected a barrier to shield the Purvama from the rest of the world. In time, the "Legend of the Floating Land" became an ambition for sky pirates who seek the island and what riches are on it. The ruins of Lemurés are where the Aegyl reside; the Aegyl are a human-like race with wings sprouting from their backs and a life-span of forty years. Due to being shielded within Lemurés, the Aegyl have no knowledge of the outside world. The magicite in Lemurés are found as Auracite and Cloudstones. Auracites are used in the License Ring to summon beasts, while Cloudstones raise the floating sky continents.
One year after the events of Final Fantasy XII, the protagonist Vaan is now a sky pirate possessing his own airship. He is joined in a new quest by his friend and navigator Penelo, other returning characters from the original title, as well as new characters such as Llyud, a member of the Aegyl race who have wings protruding from their backs. Their treasure-hunting adventures take them to the Purvama (Floating Continent) of Lemurés and the ground below, where the story begins.
