Story[edit | edit source]
Not much is known about the Celestial Realm save that it is a realm where no war or strife occurs and that it was more advanced than Luxendarc. A calamity that befell the Celestial Realm ages ago forced most of its residents to flee to Luxendarc during its age of myths. Only Vega remained in the empty world, her soul later taken by the false god Providence as he took over the realm and later created Ba'als from her memories with the intent to send the destructive monsters to Luxendarc.
During the events of Bravely Default, apparently unaware of what became of it, Ouroboros intends to invade the Celestial Realm through the power of all the worlds Airy links to transform it into a haven for chaos. Though Ouroboros nearly reaches his goal, he is destroyed by Tiz Arrior and his group before he can breach the Celestial Realm.
A few years later, during Bravely Second: End Layer, Tiz and his group learn of the Celestial Realm's current condition and venture into it to save Vega at the behest of Altair while ending Providence's evil for good.
Celestial Realm as the Real World[edit | edit source]
It is strongly implied the "Celestial Realm" is based on the real world, as seen by Altair's knowledge of contemporary items that confuse the others.
- In Bravely Default, the "gods" Ouroboros refers to are the human players playing Bravely Default. When the portal opens, the camera on the Nintendo 3DS activates and projects its image into the background in the portal Ouroboros draws attention to, likely causing the player's face to appear in the portal looking down on the battle. Furthermore, Anne speaks to the player directly in the FMVs.
- In Bravely Second, "you" are described as a being reaching to the world of Luxendarc to control Yew's group and guide them on their adventure, forcing them to endure pain and continue fighting endlessly. Providence breaks the fourth wall by calling himself a god, asserting his control over Luxendarc, and apparently forcing the player to delete their game data in the middle of the fight.
- In both games, the summons, which come from the Celestial Realm, are based on real-world objects, such as planes, trains, transmission towers, streetlights, and so on.
- In Bravely Second, the Ba'al backgrounds based on the Celestial Realm also resemble real-world, modern settings, such as a chemistry lab and ski resort.
