The Graylands.

The Graylands is a location from Vagrant Story.

It is a trade city where Duke Aldous Byron Bardorba's second residence, the tallest structure in the Graylands, is located. It is here that Ashley Riot encounters Sydney Losstarot for the first time to learn of the city of Leá Monde, which is located 31 miles north of it.

Sent to the Graylands after receiving the reports on Müllenkamp's siege of Duke Bardorba's manor, Ashley and Callo Merlose discover that the Iocus priesthood's militia, the Crimson Blades, had moved on their own without approval from the VKP, in an attempt to capture Müllenkamp's leader Sydney. Ashley meets Callo in the forest outside the Graylands, secretly watching the activities in the manor's tower from faraway.

Earlier, Duke Bardorba had ordered one of his servants to wear a Crimson Blade guise and burn everyone inside the manor. Ashley, unaware of this, moves in as the manor catches fire. Dispatching a few cultists, Ashley encounters Sydney, who summons a Wyvern to delay him and allow himself to escape. The sighting of the Wyvern, a creature uncommon in those days, was chronicled in the reports of the VKP soon after the incident.
