For the episode of the same name, see Menagerie (episode).

Menagerie is a landmass in the southeast of Remnant where most of the Faunus populate.

HistoryEdit

Following the Great War, the Faunus were given Menagerie as a reward for their participation, in conjunction with equal rights. While some Humans saw these rewards as fair and just, many Faunus saw it as a slap to the face, as Menagerie is two-thirds desert that is uninhabitable due to dangerous wild life.

Faunus Rights RevolutionEdit

Over time, Humanity became adamant for the Faunus population to be centralized in Menagerie, and would later push for confinement of all the Faunus there, as well as countermand of the equal rights of the Faunus earned in the Great War. In response, the Faunus revolted, sparking the Faunus Rights Revolution.

While little is known of the events of the Revolution, the Faunus were successful in preventing their confinement to Menagerie.

Present DayEdit

Faunus predominantly live on Menagerie, and it is seen as a "safe haven" for the species. The population is gathered together where the land is habitable, making it comparatively crowded, particularly in the main city Kuo Kuana. Though advanced enough in architecture and industry, Menagerie does not have a CCT tower, which makes communication with the rest of the world difficult[1]. The White Fang also has a cell operating in Menagerie. Blake Belladonna returns to her home in Kuo Kuana months after the fall of Beacon Academy, accompanied by Sun Wukong.

TriviaEdit

  • The name "menagerie" refers to a collection of wild animals in captivity, and it represents humanity's attitude to the Faunus and the city's status as a reservation of sorts in this case.
  • Menagerie bears some resemblance to the real world country Australia with its location being in the bottom right corner on the world map, its deserts taking up a big portion of the landmass, the wildlife being more dangerous than average and the reason for their colonization being the "removal" of undesired people from the more powerful nations. Gray G. Haddock even referred to Menagerie as "down under"—a common term for Australia—in his Thanksgiving 2016 announcement.[2]
  • In the World of Remnant episode "Vale", Menagerie and its colonies are represented by the color yellow. This likely implies that it is considered to be its own nation or territory in some respects, as the other four known nations and their townships are similarly represented.
    • Interestingly, some settlements highlighted in yellow also appear on the Remnant's second largest continent, Anima, home of the kingdom of Mistral.
