Europe has historically been a hotspot for magical activity and wizards and is the continent where magic became most prevalent during the Middle Ages. Much of the mystical culture that influences modern communities comes from the Medieval time period in Europe. Due to nearby deposits of Areum and Europe's expansionist, seafaring empires, Europe became a superpower and is the primary influence on the culture of the wizarding world.
It was also the site of several of the world's most bloodiest battles and wars, including the Crusades against magic and World War II.
The rise of Nazi Germany saw large sections of Europe conquered by the regime and placed under their control. Europe was a major theatre of World War II and was one of the continents that suffered the most warfare and damage to infrastructure as well as some of the highest casualties during the war.
After the Type-III Awakening Incident, much damage was done to Europe's cities and infrastructure. As a whole the nations of the continent strongly support the AECIF and the 1991 Type-III Regulatory Treaty.
In 2021, an incident occurred in the Elf Kingdom of Tralar in Norway when a C-17 Globemaster III crashed near the kingdom's largest village. This resulted in the modern world being exposed momentarily to the primitive and isolated elves, and sparked international criticism and controversy.
