Ancient Sheikah

The Ancient Sheikah were the original surveyors and explorers of the world, and are most commonly seen in Hyrule. Sheikah-made relics and items have also been found in Calatia. In fact, the light stone in the Southern Lighthouse is apparently created by the Ancient Sheikah.

Anima

According to Koragath, an Ice Goron may bond with an Anima, a spiritual creature in the form of an animal. Animas are extensions of the goron's own soul. When an Anima wears a collar with an Anima Totem, it gains special magical powers.

Crazy Tracy's Potion Shop

This is a chain of potion shops all around Calatia, usually run by Gerudo potion makers. Their potions are priced high but are incredibly useful. They offer discounts to patrons who bring their own ingredients, and even hold classes to teach potion-making. A few branches also sell discounted "mystery potions" from time to time.

Divine Beast Vah Sarias

Lakna Shaz's greatest weapon was a gigantic bear made of stone, metal, and magic. It was piloted by other Sheikah warriors who wielded a blue katana. Supposedly it remains at rest in Old Calatia, guarded by Lakna Shaz.

Divine Weapons

Weapons that were created by the guidance of the gods and granted some of their divine energy. Five such weapons have been recorded in history: The Master Sword, Gale Force, Stonebreaker, Hero's Honor, and Masamune. Those that are not chosen by the gods are unable to wield these weapons, instead bringing harm to themselves.

Hylia

Hylia is honored as the guardian and protector of Hyrule. But in Calatia, she is largely unknown. A small and dirty shrine to her is found in a back alley in Mabel Village's impoverished fishing district.

Ice Gorons

In the far northern reaches of Calatia, a group of gorons used magic to temper themselves against the cold. They became the Ice Gorons, noted for their gray and white skin and blue eyes.

Kokiri's Emerald

The magical item aboard Nayru's Blessing. This was identified by Celadhil, a member of Cruel's cult. Dilly, Kokiri girl captured by Billimug, claims that the Kokiri's Emerald can be used to cause Fallen Kokiri to manifest their nightmares in the real world.

Lighthouses

Large magical lighthouses guard the borders of Calatia and are revered as holy sites to worshippers of the Caretaker. There are at least three that are known and still in operation: the Southern Lighthouse in the Loftwing Province, the Western Lighthouse near the sea, and the Eastern Lighthouse at the end of Hokani Bay. A Northern Lighthouse is rumored to be somewhere in Old Calatia. The legends say that the lighthouses keep the darkness at bay, but few people understand what this means or if it is even true.

Local Police

The local police in each town or city have special names given to their chiefs. In Mabel Village, the chief is the Downrigger. In Kanalet, the chief is the Scarecrow. In Chorus, the chief is called The Mouth (meaning the Mouth of the Queen).

Mabel City Cistern

Mabel Village used to be Mabel City, a very large metropolis before people moved to what is now Old Calatia. Below the village is an ancient cistern, built to collect and store fresh water for the population. Now, it is infested with chu chus and skulltulas.

Marshals

The name of the provincial police force, usually moving from one town or city to the next.

Old Calatia

This region of the country is to the far north, perpetually under snow. It was the original country of Calatia before the Great Disaster laid it to waste. Few people venture to Old Calatia anymore, except a few adventerous explorers and the Ice Gorons.

Provinces

The country of Calatia is very large. It is broken down into separate regions called Provinces. Each province has a capital city or town, and a group of provincial police called Marshals.

Sentinels

The roaming police force for all of Calatia. Sentinels are not tied to a particular place, and are given freedom to enforce the law wherever they are. Their salary is subsidized by the Crown of Calatia, unlike Marshals who are paid by individual towns. Most Sentinels take the role as a supplement to their adventuring jobs.

Tail Cave

Tail Cave is a small cave south of Mabel Village and has been shut to the public for some time by Ulrira, the Elder of Mabel Village. It was originally a fishing location during high tides, but was most recently used as a site for the masked assailants to abduct people. A large Mothula lived in the back room.

The Book of Raqa

This is a strange history book of Calatia, written by someone named Raqa. The text is written in an ancient Calatian dialect, but the book cannot be read because it is bound by a magical seal that keeps the book shut. A librarian in Chorus unsealed the book for Nami and she gained the ability to use the Golden Goddesses' spells from it.

The Caretaker

The Hyruleans have many stories and legends of the creation of the world. The Calatians do, too, but revere one god above all others: The Caretaker. The Caretaker is depicted as a tall figure wearing gray armor and a long hood. In his right hand is a long spear. In his left is a curved katana. The Church of the Caretaker is the primary religion of Calatia.

The Spring of Wellness

This is a magical spring in the Featherwood Forest. Those that bathe in it are granted instant relief from pain. A Bokoblin, Huk, operates the spring of wellness as a campground and has enchanted the water so that it dyes a bather's skin purple for a few days.

The Temple of Paraba

High in the Hokani Mountains was the ancient town of Acton. The villagers here were worshippers of a lesser god named Paraba, the patron of heroes. When the Great Disaster occurred, Acton was abandoned and the religion of Paraba disappeared. The temple had since been taken over by a dark entity, Majora.
