The Land of Deep Snow: Reimdahl - An extremely cold theocracy shrouded in snow and ice. An existing legend states that a dragon saved the country about 1000 years ago; that led to the founding of the Reimdahl Orthodoxy religion which reveres its savior as the God Dragon. The current supreme priest of the religion is the Oracle Asterisk Holder Domenic. It is said in the country that evil fairies morph into humans, so the Inquisitor Helio sets out to find these fairies and send them to Divine Judgment.
Gwilym - A small lizard-like creature that suddenly appeared when Seth's party heads towards Reimdahl. Able to speak human language, it claims to be the son of the God Dragon and had also met Adelle before.
Dragoon Asterisk Holder: Martha Lancer - A spearwoman from the Lancer family which has assumed the "Dragon Shrine Guardian" position for generations. The Dragon Shrine is said to be a holy site where the God Dragon lives. She has a duty to guard the place just like her title.
Spiritmaster Asterisk Holder: Helio - A man recognized by the supreme priest Domenic and appointed as the Reimdahl Orthodox Inquisitor. His duty is to find out fairies that disguise as humans and wreak havoc, and bring them to Divine Judgment.
Oracle Asterisk Holder: Domenic - The supreme priest of the Reimdahl Orthodoxy. He considers his own words as those of the God Dragon, and he declares that the tranquil atmosphere in Reimdahl is proof of people's faith.
