RWBY: WORLD OF REMNANT
Ah. Right, where were we?
Of the four kingdoms, Mistral has the most controlled territory, meaning you'll find a wider variety of ecosystems and lifestyles. Trust me, this place has something for everyone, for better or worse.
The high society folks of Mistral are known worldwide for their contributions to fashion, architecture, theater, all the things that make the world pretty and tolerable.
But its lower class has got a fame of its own. Mistral is home to the biggest black market on the planet.
Need something that's hard to find? Got someone that's hard to kill? They can help, provided you've got the Lien to pay for it.
There's one common thread that links all these people together, though, and that's their respect for nature. Particularly the sea and the sky.
The natural resources and geography of the area impacted Mistral's culture and technology in a big way.
Its first settlers found shelter high up in the wind-carved cliffs, and as their population grew so did their ability to utilize the land to its fullest potential. A real bunch of forward thinkers.
Of course, the bigger the kingdom, the harder it is to govern.
There's a reason traitors and thieves flock to Mistral.
The main city's right under the Council's eye, sure, but places like Windpath and Kuchinashi start to get a little farther out of sight.
There's plenty of places to hide in Mistral.
That's why you gotta know where to look.
