One of the surviving races of Eternal Flame, after its cataclysmic explosion. Their race was an intellectual class which held much power, centered in their capital city, Bastialle. With the Great Cataclysm, most of their people were lost and their city destroyed in the blast. As the Acoza rose in their own province, the Bastia could barely survive in theirs, having to ultimately rely on trading with the Acoza. Jealous and resentful, the Bastia infiltrated each of the trading airships of the Acoza which flew above each of the five continents; supplanting their cargo with Theta-bombs and threatening to resume the destruction of the planet. Holding the struggling continental provinces hostage, they sought to seed an empire in each province, regaining and expanding their former power.
