Kaia was the largest of the South Islands.[1] It was more than two thousand kilometers away from the island of Galangi.[2]


At some point during the Pendulum Wars, a livestock epidemic swept across the island, resulting in the culling of much of the livestock.[3]

Locust WarEdit

Six months after Emergence Day,[1] Kaia was the first island to come under attack from the Locust. The cities of Autrin and Jasper were both attacked, followed by an assault on the island itself. The army evacuated people north and attempted to hold back the Locust, but Corpsers just rolled right over the armored vehicles.[4] Those that could escape made it to the island of Noroa, including two Gears from the 5th Kaian Grenadiers.
