Kaiator is the fortress city built by the Amani to honor Kaia, the patron deity who saved the Amani in their darkest hour, as well as to house her in her earthbound state, isolated from the other gods. This fortress city was erected upon the remains of what was once the town of the Giants, who shackled and tormented the Amani for so long. It serves as the sole stronghold blocking the encroachment of the alien Argon invaders.
This enormous city is often called the Town of Fire or The Impregnable Fortress of the North. Located on Northern Shara, Kaiator is the economical center of the world of TERA, and also serves as an important hub of transportation, tying the world together in support of the Valkyon Federation.
Unlike the other capitals of Arborea, Kaiator resembles a fortress more than a city. The town is focused on durability and practicality as opposed to aesthetics. The smelting work which produces weapons and materials for war is as valuable to the Amani as beautiful stone statues and water fountains. No matter how rustic the other races claim Kaiador is, the Amani who have spent so much time fighting wars and fighting off violent monsters are proud of their city and find it the most beautiful.
