Grand_Aideen.jpg

Overview


Grand Aideen is the capitol of the Namarian province and, appropriately, one of the largest towns in LOQO2. It is the current home of Namaria's ruler, King Caldor II, as well as Cleric Gin'Yen (Zhu'Yen's son), and General Layla. Grand Aideen is also home to Madam Sonya's Palace and the Church of Grand Aideen. The town's size also lends itself to a wide variety of individuals and shops, including Namaria's only open air market.








History & Current Role

In Episode 2, Grand Aideen becomes the front line for Emperor Bestorahl's assault upon Namaria, in which he uses the long dormant golems housed inside of Aideen Castle to wreak havoc upon it's citizens. Despite appearing to mortally wound King Caldor II, Bestorahl's plans to destroy the will of Namarian soldiers and citizens are apparently thwarted by Kai and party when they break through his ranks and rescue the King.
Grand Aideen is restored to its undamaged after defeating Seth in the Royal Palace in Thebes.



Residents & Natives



King_Caldor_II_Portrait.jpgKing Caldor II

The current ruler of Namaria, he can always be found sitting on his throne in the rear of Castle Aideen. Caldor cared deeply for his people, but admits that his authority is limited, owning up to mistakes regarding Castle Resteed and Lord Kross. Conversing with him completes Chapter 2-1 of the main quest and begins Chapter 2-2.

General LaylaLayla_Portrait.jpg

Head of the royal guard, Caldor II offers her skills to Kai and his party after tasking them to investigate Mt. Dreadclaw. Strict and loyal, she will quickly defend her king from attacks both physical and verbal. Accepting her into the party will prevent Kai from recruiting Latex later in the game.

Gin'YenGin'Yen_Portrait.jpg

Son of Zhu'Yen and head Cleric of the Church of Grand Aideen, in which he also resides. Gin'Yen has chosen to follow in his father's footsteps, becoming a healer and aiding those who enter his church seeking assistance. He will offer his services to Kai and his party should his father, Zhu'Yen, be killed by Altum the Dark Knight during Chapter 1-1.

Madam SonyaMadam_Sonya_Portrait.jpg

Proprietor of the brothel Madam Sonya's Palace located in the Northeast section of town.

She always stands in the lobby of her brothel, greeting patrons immediately after they enter.
