Final Fantasy XII is set in the world of Ivalice, and for years
the two Empires of Archadia and Rozarria have been fighting against each
other in a bitter struggle. Located in a strategically important corridor
between the two powers is the small kingdom of Dalmasca.
Even though an unfortunate encounter in his past left Vaan without a family, he is an
optimistic and bright young man yielding from the ancient kingdom of Dalmasca--which has fallen
under the control of the Archardian Empire. As a result Vaan becomes a member of the resistance to regain
his own sovereignty and in hope that Dalmasca will be liberated from the grip of the Archardian Empire.
Ashe is the sole daughter of the king of Dalmasca and hence the next inline
to the throne. Following the invasion of her country, she becomes the leader
of the resistance against the Empire. During a wild pursuit, she loses one
companion after the other. Despite her desperate situation, she still hasn't
lost the pride of a princess. In this situation she meets Vaan, and a joint adventure begins. . .
