Accordo (アコルド, Akorudo?) is a nation in the world of Eos in Final Fantasy XV. An island or archipelago spanning nation, Accordo is to the southeast of the Lucian Continent. Its most prominent city is Altissia, a city on water navigated via waterways. It is part of the Niflheim Empire, but has its own government lead by the first secretary in Altissia, Camelia Claustra.
Accordo was established before the adoption of the modern calendar system, after the king guarding the Crystal drove Starscourge from Eos 2000 years ago. Accordo grew commercially prosperous, and on M.E. 1, 755 years ago, it adopted the modern calendar alongside the nations of Lucis, Niflheim and Tenebrae.
Accordo and Lucis have joined forces against imperial oppression in the past. Circa M.E. 606 Niflheim fought the Lucian-Accordian Allied Forces until the Lucian king erected the Wall around the whole of the Cavaugh region that includes the Crown City of Insomnia, and took up a siege position.
In M.E. 725, Prince Regis and his company made a trip to Accordo to restore the Lucian-Accordian alliance against the empire. Niflheim had invaded the three regions of Leide, Duscae, and Cleigne, and though Lucis challenged the empire they were pushed back. He was forced to withdraw to the Crown City due to the Lucian army's defeat and the range of the Wall was pulled back to Insomnia's ramparts.
Creation and developmentEdit
The Final Fantasy XV E3 2013 trailer says that "Niflheim has already waged war for crystals in Solheim, Tenebrae and Accordo", but Accordo never had a crystal in the final game.
Accordo means "agreement" (or "chord" if it refers to music) in Italian—Latin would more commonly be consensus—to consent. From Latin, Literally Ac-cor-do/datur: to give, or be of the same heart. The French d'accord follows the same etymology.
