Miria's Mystery Village Edit
Miria speaks about a village that may be in Lautrec, according to one manga translation. The village is "deep in the mountains," in "an area in the southwest, the furthest from the Organization's control." The villagers were shocked to see Miria when she visited. And that the villagers never heard of Yoma. (Scene 79, VIZ translation). See Miria's Mystery Village.
Behind the Scenes Edit
"Lautrec" may derive from the French Post-Impressionist painter, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901), as also the central region of " Toulouse."
The Japanese version of "Lautrec," "ロートレク" can be transliterated back to "Rotoreku." Pronounced "ro-to-re-ku."
