Amestris is the second largest city under Imperial control next to Locke. It is a grand city that holds much influence not only for its size, but also the fact that it holds the Magicians Academy within its borders.
The city of Amestris is currently governed over by Lor VonCreeper a former inquisitor. Amestris is also known for the large wall that cuts it off from the rest of the land mass that it is connected to. Although it has never been assaulted before, it would be extremely foolish both for the fact of its large defensive capability and that it holds both a former Inquisitor, the current Grand Inquisitor and all magicians training at the academy.
