The Lorican Alliance (ロリカ同盟, Rorika Dōmei?) is a nation which holds the Peristylium of Genbu in Final Fantasy Type-0. Lorica controls the Genbu Crystal, which contains the power of the Shield. This nation was referred to as Kogai in earlier footage.
In Lorica, located in a harsh mountain region, Genbu Peristylium manages the Genbu Crystal. The people of Lorica directly take in the power of the crystal to strengthen their bodies, making them bigger than the people of other countries. Nearly all citizens serve as knights for the country.
Prior to the events of Type-0, the nation of Lorica was under attack by the Milites Empire when Cid Aulstyne breaks the Pax Codex peace treaty. An all out war between the Lorican soldiers and Milites troops occurs. Unfortunately, the nation is annihilated by an Ultima Bullet dropped by the Empire, leaving a huge crater in the area of Lorica. The devastation caused by the Ultima Bullet did not even leave any ruins of the Genbu Peristylium to speak of and the city was completely removed from sight. Khalia Chival VI and the entire world of Orience would later receive the news of the nation's fate.
The country's attributes and qualities, as well as symbolism to one of the animals of the Four Symbols is evident in its themes.
- Representing the north, Lorica is also situated in Orience's northernmost regions.
- Representing the season of Winter, Lorica is situated in a mountainous region, with little to no vegetation.
- Aligned with the Wu Xing element of Water, the Genbu Crystal's powers bestow strengthening and great physical ability through being in the presence of its magic. With water being essential to all life, ameliorating and vitalizing with its consumption, the Genbu Crystal also manifests its powers in just as such a manner.
- Its animal the Tortoise and Snake, both symbolically represent longevity. Both animals also likely represent indomitable fortitude (tortoise), and a fearsome might to not provoke (snake).
