At the center of the island was located an academy that taught magic, alchemy and basic education. Its biggest purpose was passing down magic knowledge and skills to the next generation. Dormitories were also located in it. The most important building on its grounds was the sanctuary, usually only accessed by members of the Magic Association.
Besides the academy, there also existed other facilities that provided basic needs, such as residences, companies, vigilance system and judicial system.
During the Great Dark War, Ishana was called the “safest place on Earth”. Here the Six Heroes were preparing for the battle with the Black Beast, and people from the privileged class from different countries fled here. It was also the place where the Magic Formulas and Arch-Enemy Event Weapons were created.
After the war, Ishana was forgotten, and on its basis the Hierarchical Cities were built.
- In the English localization, the Magic City of Ishana is called “Magister’s City: Ishana”. “Magister”, when translated idiomatically from Latin, means “Master” – a honorific title often used to address individuals of high social status, such as teachers.
- In BlazBlue: Chronophantasma and BlazBlue: Centralfiction, there are certain events online that allow players to access the online lobby Magic City of Ishana. Those who enter the lobby will be gifted with up to 5 separate accessories, however, the lobby is usually only up for a limited amount of time and will disappear until the next event occurs.
