Kataru is a city state located on a small island off the coast of Apicarta. It is currently ruled by Mara Mallory. The city is known for its enclosed architecture and rainy weather. The citizens are stereotyped as gloomy and solemn. They are known for wearing modest full body robes in dark, muted colors. The culture is dominated by religion, and the Temple still holds sway over their society.
During the rule of the Old Exekian Empire, it was a small trading port of little consequence. After the Empire fell, it grew substantially, remaining independent even when it was repeatedly sieged by King Letholdus III.
The master sculptor Meier Amano was born in Kataru.
