Kanavan is one of the two kingdoms that rule on Bermesiah, the other being Serdin. Founded at least 1500 years ago by Esnar Din Kanavan, it is the kingdom of swordsmanship and many phenomenal swordsmen such as Elesis, Ronan, Elscud and Sieghart hail from Kanavan. There are also four known organizations within the kingdom: the Kanavan Royal Guard, the Ruby Knights, the Kanavan Trackers, and the Existor.
Kanavan is currently ruled by a Queen and once a King when first founded. Similarly, Serdin is ruled by a Queen as well, but with no mention of a King in its history.
