This article contains plot and/or ending details.


Zhong is a place that resembles Asia in appearance as well as culture. It is also known as the Walled Lands.

Zhong was ruled by an Emperor until Heart of the Land, where the Emperor was killed and his daughter, Princess Song, took his place as the Empress. At the end of The Dragon's Eye, Song is declared deceased after presumably drowning, and Zhong is left without a leader.


Zhong is based on many Asian countries, most noticeably China. It is a big region with many villages scattered about the land. The Zhongese people call the Nectar Ceremony the 'Bonding Day celebration', and unlike Eura, the most important summoner goes last to increase the chance of getting a spirit animal. Meilin and her father are from here. There is a great wall in Zhong, which encircles its most important city, Jano Rion. The patron beast of Zhong is Jhi the Panda, who is also depicted on the flag.

The Conquerors invaded the country the same day Jhi was summoned back to the world by Meilin; they had probably engaged the attack because of the country's prosperity. Zhong was among the most devastated countries after the events of the war, but its people are currently rebuilding.

Notable Events That Took Place In Zhong


  • Zhong was occupied by the Conquerors in both of the Devourer Wars.
  • Zhong's name may be based off of the anglicized version of the Chinese word for China, 中国 or "Zhōngguó"
  • The idea of Zhong falling to the Conquerors may have come up as the idea of saltwater crocodiles, which are mostly found in Australia, are the Devourer's spirit animal. Saltwater crocodiles had actually traveled to South Asian coasts, terrorizing them, the same way as the Conquerors were battling in Zhong.
