Purvama, the Floating Lands. In the border-skies they wait. Untrodden, unknown.


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. According to a Moogle spoken to in Final Fantasy XII in Bhujerba, the continents float due to the high concentration of magicite in the rock.



Skycity of Bhujerba

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. Many areas of the mines are locked by massive gates that enemies cannot pass through though if someone had the key to these gates they could open it.

Spoilers end here.


Lemurés is a legendary floating archipelago, 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.
