Ilia (イリア Ilia) is a barren and icy wasteland in the northeastern part of Elibe. Its cities and towns include Remi, Carrhae, and the capital Edessa. This country's harsh snowy weather makes it almost impossible for Ilians to farm anything, making them resort to becoming mercenaries to bring in income to their country. Most mercenaries from this country are female, unlike most countries where males take a more active role in fighting.
Barigan the Faithful, of the Eight Legends and wielder of the frozen spear Maltet, founded Ilia and the first mercenary guild in the country. Ilia is the native country of pegasi in Elibe which allows most female mercenaries to become Pegasus Knights. Units of Pegasus Knights are grouped into divisions called "Wings". A 3rd Wing (Strongwings) and 5th Wing are known to exist. There is also a legend of an Ice Dragon which lives in one of the mountains in Ilia.
