Azha, the mining village, is a town located the middle of Nihal Desert in Alfard. Although Azha is part of the Alfard continent, it is not considered as part of the empire, as people from Mintaka treat them as inferior people. This village is famous for its mining activities, which include the extraction of Flame Ice and other minerals, including the finest Iron Ores. The Azhani people have a hard life, nevertheless, Azha is a lively and active place (that is until Operation Sweep happens)
OriginsEditIn Baten Kaitos Origins, Azha is visited by Sagi, Guillo and Milly pretty early in the game. In this place they meet a young Almarde and a Maledieter named Bein. Sagi is sent by Quaestor Verus to investigate about the Mourning Mistral, an Azhani criminal who supposedly was the one who caused a bombing in Greater Mintaka. He also meets Lyuvann, who was sent to investigate. After discovering that the Mourning Mistral is Bein, he goes out of control and runs to the Lava Caves and is fought by Sagi in the form of an Umbra. After these events, the player can make some quests about Lyuvann and Almarde´s romance.
Eternal WingsEditIn Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, the group visits Azha after the events in the Goldoba. The town is almost abandoned because most of its inhabitants were killed in Operation Sweep. Here, Kalas goes to the Lava Caves in search of the last End Magnus.
