Due to the high concentration of water- and wind-aspected aether in these heavens high above the center of Abalathia's Spine, the clouds are said to resemble a vast white ocean, dotted with massive floating isles. This otherworldly landscape is also home to the many tribes of the Vanu Vanu, whose villages are scattered throughout the Sea of Clouds.

— In-game description

Upon an airship conceived within the fecund mind of Cid Garlond,
renegade prodigy of Garlemald who had come to call Eorzea home...
High into the heavens where isles of earth and stone floated as clouds—
frontier the knights of Ishgard had scarce begun to explore...
To a fledgling outpost within the Sea of Clouds where careworn scouts
ever scanned the skies for winged shadows, he came...
—From the memoirs of Count Edmont de Fortemps


Nestled in the mountains of Abalathia sits the Sea of Clouds.

The water and wind-aspected energies of the surrounding area create a perpetual mist reminiscent of clouds, thus making the location true to its name.These same energies can be attributed to floating islands within its mist-shrouded borders.

The unique climate conditions of these islands have given rise to heretofore unseen animal life. And with the advent of airship technology, Ishgard has slowly expanded into this brave new frontier.

Relations with the local beast tribue, the Vanu Vanu, began several years ago. After an exchange of pleasantries and gifts, permission was given to construct a permanent lookout post, and there was peace for half a year. Then suddenly, and for reasons unknown, the Vanu began attacking the garrison's foraging parties, forcing them to rely more heavily on supplies flown in from Ishgard.
