ooc: facts & fiction

Disclaimer: These little tidbits and fact was written originally upon FF12 Fansite and the Final Fantasy wikia. These facts about Bhujerba are true to FF12 and are owned by SquareEnix. I take no credit in their creation but only use these facts for my portrayal of the Marquis.

Bhujerba is located on the sky continent of Dorstonis, currently floating above the Purvama region.

Sage Knowledge
"An autonomous city-state found on the sky continent of Dorstonis. Originally formed as a Magicite mining colony with the advent of Airship travel. The Magicite mines of the skylands are superior to crystal mines on the surface in both quantity and quality of ore, and Bhujerba developed quickly on fortunes born of rock.

During the years of the Galtean Alliance, the Ondore family took over much of the daily business of Bhujerba's governance, a rule which continues to this day. Their neutral stance during the Archadian invasion two years ago positioned them as mediators of the peace negotiations that followed.

Like much of Dorstonis, Bhujerba is a city of hills and sloping boulevards. Merchant houses and shops are clustered near the peaks, while residences are found in the valleys. At the very bottom of the hills lies the network of crystalline shafts known as the Lhusu Mines.
Many visitors come to Bhujerba to enjoy the open-air parks with spectacular views only available to those who live in the sky. Very rarely does anyone fall from the skycity, and curiously enough, not a single death has been reported to have resulted from such an occurrence to date."

The people of Bhujerba speak with an accent similar to "Indian English." In fact, many of their terms are actual words from the Sanskrit language. Most commonly heard throughout the city is the word "bhadra"—a formality somewhat similar to the use of sir/madam/ma'am or Mr./Mrs./Ms. in English.

Other Bhujerban words include:

* "amba" - mother
* "hanta" - great
* "kah" - who
* "kastam" - alas
* "madhu" - a kind of wine
* "parijanah" - guide
* "raksas" - monster
* "sainikah" - soldier
* "svagatam" - welcome
