The Atlas Continent is one of the continents of the Ys World, located due west of Eresia, in the Atlas Ocean. It was notable for being home to emel, a translucent mineral with magical properties. Its native inhabitants were the Eldeen, with Rehdans from the west and the humans from the east living alongside them. It housed the Eldeen civilization until their conflict with the Darklings, which resulted in the continent being flooded and the near extinction of the Eldeen race. Its present remnants are the Canaan Islands.
