Castle Town of FortunaEdit
The Castle Town of Fortuna (城塞都市フォルトゥナ Jōsai Toshi Forutuna?) is found in the southern section of the island. The city sports distinctive Renaissance architecture, and contains the "Port Caerula" (Lat: "Blue" Port), an opera house/cathedral, and a large business district. The city sits around the true Hellgate, whose black monolith has stood for hundreds of years. It was sealed by Sparda when he ruled the city, but was reopened by the Order using the Yamato, and eventually destroyed by Dante using the same sword.
All of the native residents of the city, including children, are members of the Order of the Sword, which dictates every aspect of their lives. The townspeople wear cowls with the insignia of the Sword of Sparda on them, and live pious yet modern lives, peacefully worshiping Sparda.
Lamina Peak (Lat: "Layer" Peak), a snowy mountain range with an extensive network of mining and tunnels, is located in the north. At its base lay the "Ferrum Hills" (Lat: "Iron" Hills), surrounding a small mining village and the first of the false Hellgates, guarded by Berial. The settlement was completely destroyed after Nero's fight with the demon.
Headquarters of the Order of the SwordEdit
The main headquarters of the Order is an immense fortress on the eastern side of the island, built above the ocean itself. From Gran Album Bridge, which connects the Headquarters with the mainland, opens a beautiful view: a snow-white citadel rising to a tremendous height. The Headquarters themselves are split into two parts. They are connected by a bridge, which is held in the upper position by demonic trees, whose roots reside in Agnus's room. The second part seems to be more focused on administration and the Order's projects: there is the Meeting Room, the Ascension Chamber, and the Advent Chamber (which housed the dormant form of the Savior). Later, when The Savior is awakened, The HQ collapses because the god's power no longer sustains the building.
Fortuna was the goddess of fortune and the personification of luck in Roman mythology. Known as Tyche in Greece. She was responsible for spinning the "Wheel of Fortune" to determine the fates of mankind. The design of Fortuna also seems to draw inspiration from the real life Vatican City in Italy. In the seventh canto of the "Inferno" in the Divine Comedy, Virgil explains the divine role of Fortuna to Dante.
