Caldaniss lies to the north-west of Acacia and is a country of moderate size ruled over by an absolute monarchy whose origins go back over five hundred years. The war, despite it’s far-reaching effects in other nations, affected Caldaniss little. Caldaniss participated in the war and was even briefly invaded and held by Acacia but its organization and the principles it stands for have remained consistent throughout and after the war.
Caldaniss is ruled by the decadent Capelle Dynasty. They’ve had good kings and bad kings at the helm – like most nations of the sort. The current ruler is very progressive in his attitudes and a favorite amongst his people – Ptolemy Capelle II. Caldaniss, as a whole, has made a concentrated effort to roll with the punches in the post-war climate and, despite heavy bombing and raids into their nation, have recovered nicely from the war by making constructive use of their available Talents.
The Talents of Caldaniss attend a private institute called The Caldaniss Royal School for the Talented – rumored to be situated on the grounds of the fabled Verdallis Palace in northern Caldaniss. There they are in constant contact with the King and the royal family – who have a vested interest in the development of their country’s Talented elite.
