Like the real world, the D-Gray Man earth is composed of the 6 oceans and 7 continents. Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Africa, Oceania and Antartic.
Located next to Asia and in the north of Africa and surrounded on the east by the see, Europe is a continent where many of the characters come from. It is the Source of catholic Church, and thus the Black Order.
England is a very important country as this is where the headquarters of the Black Order is located.Formerly in an unknown part of Scandinavy the headquarters are now next to London. It is also the home country of the main character Allen Walker as well as Lvellie .
The rewinding town
The Rewinding Town is the hometown of Miranda and the scene of the arc of the same name.
Its capital Paris is the scene of the Phantom Thief G arc. Paris underwent a series of thefts. Inspector Galmar was charged with the case and he arrested many citizens but could not stop G from stealing. Marie and Lenalee were on a mission in Paris when Yu Kanda showed up to them to return to the Order.
To the north of Paris, Lavi and Doug are sent on a mission in Élysée.
This is The Lands of the Vampire.
Located to the east of Europe, Asia is a very populated continent. It is bordered by the see on the east and south.
China is the homecountry of quite a lot characters including Lenalee and Komui Lee, the Chang Clan, Chaozii Han, Anita and Mahoja. China is where the Asian Branch is located. It seems to have a prosperous population even though several akuma attacks have been noted. As a seaside country, China seems to have important harbours. China is the scene of the Suman Dark's Fallen arc and its nearby ocean is the scene of the beginning of the Edo and Asian Branch arc.
The main port city is Guangzhou.
Japan is an insular country made of an archipelago located the East of Asia. The body of Yu Kanda seems to have japanese roots. It follows a strict isolationist policy . Because of this the Earl of Millennium has been able to take control of the country. It is now completely infested with akumas. The population is 90% akumas for only 10% humans. The level 3 akumas are to found everywhere in the country and there is no safe place, even for akuma themselves (because of cannibalism).
Part of the Super American Continent, it is surrounded by the ocean except for the south.
United Stated of America
The United States of America is a large florishing country to the south of Canada. It is the homecountry of several characters such as the Epstain Family, Johnny Gill, Noah Jasdevi and Skin Bolic. The North American Branch is located in a desert of the country. It is the scene of the Artificial Exorcists arc.
Located to the south of North America, not much is known about South America. The South American Branch is there.
Located to the south of Europe, Nothing is known about Africa except that this is the place of the African Branch.
Nothing is known about Antartic. The place was historically inhabited.
See also: TimelineThe World of D-Gray Man seems to be based on the old testament of the Bible. Nothing is known about what happened over 7000 years prior to the story. 7000 years ago the World was flooded after the fight of the Heart wielder and the Earl of Millennium. The 12 remaining noah sheltered in the ark and became the ancestor of Humanity. Their descendants, the current humans seem to have populated the earth . The last millennia seem similar to the historical reports of the real world.
When the Cube was discovered about 100 years prior to the story, an organization named the new world alliance founded the Black Order which started gathering innocence shards and accomodators to fight the Earl of Millennium. The storyline takes place at the end of the XIXth century.
The holy war is obviously opposing belligerent parties:
- The Black Order: 100 years old, this organization has as primary fighters the Exorcists. They wield the innocence (see below) and fight the Noah Family and their forces.
- The Noah Family: Led by the Millennium Earl, this at least 7000 years old faction supports the end of Humanity and the achievement of the 3 days of darkness. It uses an army of Akumas.
- Apocryphos: Stemming from the Innocence side, Apocryphos doesn't seem to share the exact same goal as the Black Order. He only breaths to protect the Heart of Innocence.
- The 14th: Stemming from the Noah side, the 14th declared his will of replacing the Earl of Millennium. He seems to have supporters.
Skills and Materials
