Leonen is a densely populated human kingdom made up of seven provinces, each ruled by a Duke or Duchess, but all owing fealty to the King of Leonen. The nation has seen much political turmoil throughout its history due to a vast assortment of scheming nobles but stands strong despite itself. While predominately human, there are many other races that make their home in Leonen and are welcomed as citizens.

In Leonen, the use of the spiritual powers of magic was strictly outlawed over two centuries ago when a corrupt Archmage attempted to overthrow the King in a event known as the Mage Rebellion. To this day, if discovered, practitioners of the spiritual arts are offered two choices: exile or death. Most choose exile.
