The Kingdom of Terises was once an immense, flourishing civilization that existed in the world of Tales of Legendia. Its people worshiped the sea, which they called Nerifes, and spoke the ancient language Relares, which is still spoken today by their descendants, the Ferines.
The kingdom's leader was known as the Merines and was chosen by the divine will of the sea, and he or she sat court in the capital of Terises, the Mirage Palace. The people of Terises were credited for built many enormous, fantastic artifacts, including the Nerifes Cannon, the Wings of Light, and even the entire Legacy itself, but little is known now about them or how they lived. According to the records kept within the four elemental monuments of the Quiet Lands, the Kingdom of Terises was formed when the Orerines first arrived on the planet, descending from the sky in a great white rectangular ship. The Ferines and the Orerines went to war against each other, and the Ferines lost, forcing them to withdraw onto their ship, which they terraformed into an immense moving island, the Legacy, using the power of Nerifes.
