References Edit

Should it be noted that the Saronians were referenced in FFT (even though it might have been referencing the Cetra since it was in the Materia sections)?

Etymology Edit

There is a Saronic Gulf, part of the Aegean Sea, off the coast of Greece. The area around the gulf is sometimes referred to as Saronia, as in the historical novel Saronia: A Romance of Ancient Ephesus by Richard Short.

There was also a festival of Artemis Saronia (quote from Wikipedia follows): "a festival to celebrate Artemis in Trozeinos, a town in Argolis. A king named Saron built a sanctuary for the goddess after the goddess saved his life when he went hunting and was swept away by a wave. He held a festival in her honor." 11:12, February 6, 2017 (UTC)

Unused info/Dragoon backstory? Edit

Me again, back at it. Saronia has a lot of unused text, most of which pertaining to a dropped plot point about Arc splitting from the party. However, I'll discuss this later. Instead, I'd like to draw attention to a series of dialogues for Southwestern Saronia, where Alus explains why Dragoons are revered in Saronia and why the armor is in the Dragon Spire. It also acts as a hint for Garuda.

 アルス王子 「はるか昔 サロニアをおそった  巨大な鳥の怪物を 倒した騎士…  彼は竜の背に乗り すばらしい跳躍力で  敵の頭上に急降下する戦法をとりました  竜を御し 凱旋した彼の姿から  竜騎士という称号が生まれたのです  ドラゴンの塔には 彼が使っていた武器が  収められているのです」

Feel free to fact-check it, if need be.--ExitDoor 62 (talk) 18:21, December 9, 2018 (UTC)
