Regna Ferox (Kingdom of Felia in the Japanese version) is a kingdom in Fire Emblem: Awakening, located north of the Halidom of Ylisse. Unlike the peace-loving Ylisse, Ferox is a militant nation that values strength over all things although they are still firm allies of Ylisse.
Unlike Ferox's religious neighboring countries, Ferox does not worship any sort of deity. Ferox tends to look down on formalities and diplomacy, valuing physical strength and skill above all else. To Ferox, physical prowess speaks louder than words.
Ferox has always had two rulers known as the Khans since its founding. As of recent times the nation has been run by the two most recent Khans: Flavia of the East and Basilio of the West. However, despite having two rulers, only one is in true power at times and can supersede the other. The ruling Khan is decided in a grand fighting tournament at Arena Ferox. Every so often, the tournament is held and both Khans select an individual to be their champion. This champion cannot be a member of that Khan's family and is generally an outsider that they recognize for their strength and skill. This is to prevent blood feuds. Whichever champion bests the other in the tournament allows their Khan to be ruler until the next tournament.
Much like all nations of the realm, Ferox was founded during a period known as the Schism. After the fall of the Fell Dragon Grima, one of the jewels for the Fire Emblem was safeguarded by Ferox; the red jewel, Gules. According to Basilio, the jewel has been long lost during the passage of time.
Shortly before the events of Awakening, Plegia launched attacks against the Feroxi border. By masquerading as Ylissean soldiers, they had hoped to cause conflict between Ferox and Ylisse. However Ferox quickly saw through the Plegian army's ruse. However this made things difficult for the real Ylissean army to request help from Ferox, as they attacked Chrom and the Shepherds upon arrival at Ferox to receive aid against Plegia.
