Purvama, the Floating Lands. In the border-skies they wait. Untrodden, unknown.Fran
The Purvama, also known as the Floating Lands, is a collection of floating landmasses in the land of Ivalice in Final Fantasy XII. The Purvama lie above the Naldoan Sea, and are but one of many such geographic features. The Floating Lands include the Sky Continent of Dorstonis, where the Skycity of Bhujerba is located, and the Sky Continent of Lemurés.
A city which tries to maintain neutrality during times of wars. However, they were recently forced to ally with Archadia. Unlike other countries though, Bhujerba maintained its independence, with only a few Archadian soldiers patrolling its streets. The city is ruled by the Marquis Ondore, a member of the resistance. The city is important, due to the fact it's located on the Lhusu Mines, a rich source of Magicite.
The Lhusu Mines
Mines located in Bhujerba, they are rich in Magicite. It was for these mines that Archadia decided to ally with Bhujerba. Recently, the palings have failed, so monsters now infest the mines.
Lemurés is a legendary floating island, shielded off from the rest of the Purvama. It is the ambition of many Sky Pirates to see this island, as it is said to have many great treasures. The reclusive Aegyl live here.
