Atteka, a smaller island continent, is located just west of Gondowan and has relations with Hesperia to the north.

Atteka is the southern continent in the Great Western Sea.

Geography[edit | edit source]

The only prominent landmarks on Atteka are Jupiter Lighthouse and Contigo, both located in the centre of the landmass and are only accessible by sailing through Atteka Inlet. A minor location, the Atteka Cavern, is located on the southernmost peninsula of Atteka, and is reachable only after acquiring the Wings of Anemos. Contigo is notable for being the birthplace of Ivan.

History[edit | edit source]

Long before the main storyline of the Golden Sun games, Atteka and Hesperia were in a constant state of war. Though the war was not elaborated on very much, at the end of the war, a truce was declared where the sacred treasure of Atteka, the Hover Jade, and the sacred treasure of Hesperia, the Shaman's Rod, were traded for a peace agreement. It wouldn't be until Felix's party appeared in Hesperia (and later, Atteka) that the treasures returned to their rightful continents.

Another prominent event in Atteka's past is the fact that the civilization of Anemos, the Jupiter equivalent of Lemuria, used to live on this continent. Past tense is used because at some stage in Weyard's ancient past, prior to the sealing of Alchemy, Contigo legends say that the Anemos utilized the Hover Psynergy to lift their entire civilization into the sky. According the legends, this civilization eventually become the moon, leaving behind only a large crater and the Anemos Sanctum as proof of their existence. This legend strongly implies that the Jupiter Adept, Sheba, (who fell from the sky as a child, landing safely in Lalivero, where she was raised) is of Anemos heritage, though this is never directly confirmed.

Post Golden Sun[edit | edit source]

As indicated in dialogue at the Psynergy Training Grounds, following the Golden Sun event Atteka became part of western Gondowan.

Real World Inspiration[edit | edit source]

It geographically resembles South America, though the architecture of its residents does not. The continent's name may be a play on Aztec, a civilization that existed in Central America and held many prophecies, as the Attekites do.

Alternatively, it could be a play on Attica, a region in Greece that is home to Athens. Anemos is a city in Atteka, the word "anemos" means wind in Greek, and the Anemoi were four principle wind spirits in Greek Myth.
