Since the Western Isles are waterlocked and isolated from other countries, it is hard for even the mighty Etruria to keep a firm grasp on the law of the land and with its intricate system of small islands, it makes a perfect haven for pirates to do their bidding. Many of the inhabitants are of axe-fighting classes, such as Pirates, Brigands, Fighters and Heroes.
Durban the Berserker, one of the Eight Legends, settled in the western isles. He hid his legendary weapon, Armads, in a secluded cave, guarded by poison gas and darkness. The axe was eventually obtained by Hector in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade and then again by Roy in The Binding Blade during his campaign on the Isle.
At the epilogue, the people of Western Isle heritage, led by the resistance leader Echidna, colonize the Isles and, with Etruria's help, becomes a great nation all its own.
