The capital of the Holy Midgand Empire. Site of the royal castle, the Abbey's headquarters, and a cathedral dedicated to the Empyreans.

Loegres, Jewel of the Empire (栄光ある王都 ローグレス Eikouaru Outo Rooguresu?, "Glorious Royal Capital Logress") is a location in Tales of Berseria, the capital of Midgand, and the home of the Abbey, as well as the original headquarters of the exorcists. It eventually becomes the city of Pendrago in Tales of Zestiria.


Loegres is a city teeming with exorcists, who are held in high regard by its citizens. Notable constructs include the castle of Loegres and the immense Grand Cathedral, which is still undergoing construction. The Grand Cathedral still stands centuries later during the events of Tales of Zestiria as Pendrago's shrinechurch.


The majority of Loegres's citizens greatly idolize Artorius Collbrande for his efforts in fighting against the daemons and even chide him for overworking, unaware of his dreadful past. However, others lament the inflexibility of rules set by the Abbey, citing imposed curfew and difficult to obtain permits as examples. The citizens are also shown to have immense faith in the Empyreans, singing high praises for them and visiting the Cathedral to worship them.

Artorius is granted his title of Shepherd in Loegres by Prince Percival Yil Mid Asgard of Midgand in a ceremony that is publicly celebrated. A prominent shadow guild known as the Bloodwing Butterflies, led by Tabatha Baskerville, operates in Loegres. The guild is shown to hold significant power in the city's affairs by being able to prepare legitimate permits for Velvet Crowe and having members among the city's guards.

When Velvet's group arrives in Loegres for the first time, they had to enter the town by going under the alias guise of "Magilou's Menagerie", with Velvet doing an embarrassing impersonation of a dove to fool the guards. After the ceremony, they head over to the tavern run by the Bloodwing Butterflies to get any leads on Artorius. Tabatha entrusts Velvet with a couple of tasks to complete first before she could get info about him. The first task is to set fire to red crates in Port Zekson's warehouse. The second task is to search for a missing person in Galles Lake Road. And the third and final task is to ambush a carriage hauling red crates on Danann Highway.

Once all three tasks were completed, Velvet is then given the mission to assassinate the city's high priest, Gideon, who has succumbed to corruption and is identified as a threat by the shadow guild for selling a highly addictive substance called nectar. High Priest Gideon is found in Loegres's Villa praying at the church at night, and Velvet's group sneaks into the Villa via the Barona Catacombs to confront him. They fight Eleanor Hume inside the church and defeat her, with Magilou reclaiming her lost malak Bienfu in the process. Gideon, thinking that the Abbey has betrayed him, turns into a daemon and escapes through the church's back corridor, with Velvet's group in hot pursuit. The High Priest is eventually killed when a therionized griffin imprisoned beneath the church consumes him. The death of the High Priest is covered up by the Abbey, who claims that he is merely recovering from a debilitating illness, and his misdeeds go unannounced.

Later, the group returns to Loegres after receiving word from a Bloodwings agent to go see Tabatha for another task. Tabatha entrusts the group with a mission to escort a hooded individual with his pet hawk out of the city. They agree to the mission and escort the person onto the Van Eltia on route to Titania, where the person reveals himself to be Prince Percival. Percival explains that he escaped the palace because he freed his pet hawk, Griffin, who is revealed to be the griffin therion that consumed Gideon, from his prison in the Villa. He did so because he could not bare to see his animal companion suffer under the hands of the Abbey. From here, Percival starts supporting Velvet's group in their endeavors.

After Innominat's domain covers the world, Velvet's group returns to Loegres to find that all of the people in the city are stripped of their free will. Tabatha and Percival are the only ones left with free will, while everyone else is a slave to "reason". The city is locked in this state until the Four Elemental Empyreans awaken and expel Innominat out of the earthpulse.


  • Like other locations in Tales of Zesitria and Tales of Berseria, Loegres draws its name from Arthurian legend. It comes from Logres, the name of King Arthur's realm.
