The Arena is a Parthenon-like structure built to act as a public forum and arena for various events.
Originally a part of The City of Twisted, the Arena was used as a Town Hall by Señor Diablo once he took control of the city from the original Council. After his succession by Lady Setsuna, the Arena was nearly demolished under orders by TASK Director Rayne Hubris. However, largely thanks to the martial arts community it was allowed to remain in service - eventually being moved to The City of Neo-Edo to help preserve it from the chaos that once more overtook Twisted when the stabilizing barrier was lifted.
Looking like it belongs in a classical epic, rather than on a city street, this theater-style arena obviously serves more than a single purpose. This entrance chamber has an empty ticket booth for events and various posters adorn the walls. From here a large gate hangs open looking down over the large arena in the building's center.
The sand crunches beneath your feet as you descend into the Arena proper. Hanging from the pillars are colorful banners representing the seasons, viewable only from the inside of the building. An interesting feature of the arena is that the seats above are somehow protected against attacks. Meaning if a fight where to break out in the arena itself, anyone standing along the walkways would be completely safe should the fight get out of control. Because of this seeing people wildly testing their abilities here is not uncommon.
Once this arena served as the Town Hall of Twisted during Señor Diablo's reign. While no real evidence of its time serving that function exists, bewildered fighters will occasionally claim to see glowing red writing scrawled across every surface just before being knocked out. The subject of that writing only serves to be more confusing as it always seems to be written in that fighter's native language. The message? Presumably a riddle that reads, "Fulfill the prophecy" over and over again.
The Northern entrance of the Parthenon-like Arena looks almost exactly the same as the Southern entrance. There are still several empty ticket booths and posters on the walls advertising various events. There is still a large, heavy gate (currently closed) to restrict entrance to the Arena from outside the building. However the noticeable difference is that this side is rarely used. Dust and cobwebs cover everything. Once this side of the building led travelers to the TASK Building, but back then the Arena was in an entirely different city.
Beneath the dust on the wall opposite the ticket booths hangs a painting of the famous Carpathian, Vigo. It is said that his spirit still haunts the painting to this day - randomly giving out cryptic messages making fun of the near future.
