The Kingdom of Tantal is a nation in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, it is located on Genbu's back. Tantal is ruled over by the "Tantal" bloodline, a family who usurped the rights to the Tornan throne when the nation fell, 500 years before the events of the game, to avoid further confusion and potential conflicts. Since then, the Kings of Tantal are threatened by Amalthus, the leader of the Indoline Praetorium who will reveal their secret if they do not provide him with a fixed quantity of Core Chips. Their extraction from Genbu's Ether flow destroyed the climate of the Titan and condemned the Tantalese to an eternal winter and poor food supplies. This and Tantal's isolationism caused by the fear of a public reveal of the illegitimacy of the royal family forced most Tantalese to live in absolute misery.

History

Creation

The Kingdom of Tantal was created by one of the cadet branch of the royal family of the Kingdom of Torna, a nation which was destroyed in the Aegis War, 500 years before the events of the game. The cadet branch revendicated to be of the same bloodline as Addam Origo, the Tornan hero who fought during the Aegis War. Soon they gained enough following to form their own nation built on the ghosts of Torna and Addam.

Troubles with the Praetorium

Amalthus who was alive during the Aegis War and who knew the true lineage of the Tantalese Royal Family threathened them to reveal their secret if they did not provide him with a fixed quantity of Core Chips. The consequences of this would be atrocious for the kingdom who soon became a frozen land. The Tantalese would then obtain the Omega Fetter and use it to control Genbu and notably to make him stay under the Cloud Sea and avoid other nations turning Tantal into an isolationist state.

The return of the Aegis

When the Driver of the Aegis came to Tantal with the hope to find a way to Elysium, King Eulogimenos Tantal sought to destroy Pyra instead, this attempt failed which caused Genbu to go out of control and sink beneath the Cloud Sea, which would crush everyone inside it under its pressure. The party eventually fix the Omega Fetter and Pandoria is able to tell Genbu to regain the surface.
