The Fanalis (ファナリス, Fanarisu) are a hunting tribe from the Dark Continent. The Fanalis Corps of the Reim Empire is made up of only Fanalis. The Fanalis are the descendants of the Red Lions, a species from Alma Torran.
All Fanalis have red hair and eyes. Most Fanalis have a piercing under their lower lip.
The Fanalis are originally from Alma Torran. They were a species known as Red Lions (赤獅子 Akajishi) and had the form of a strange beast with a skin like steel and a deep crimson red. After they were teleported to the new world, they took the form of humans with red hair and eyes and with great strength. They only take their original form in the Great Rift, and it is known that if a Fanalis goes back to the Great Rift, they cannot come back because they finally found their original form and their homeland.
Their physical strength and senses are beyond that of a normal human, they are considered to be the strongest race in the world. Even a young Fanalis like Masrur managed to fight an adult Imuchakk like Hinahoho on equal ground.
They can jump to extraordinary heights and even break metal. Their kicks are like lightning and they can even take down the mighty king of beasts in one blow. Fanalis like Morgiana as an example can perform loud battle cry or echolocation to map their locations. Fanalis that are "pure bloods" are stronger than those who are not. Due to their great physical strength, they have low quantities of Magoi (because of this, using Metal Vessels or Household Vessels often leave them paralyzed or close to death) but half bloods seem to have more Magoi than pure bloods. Their extraordinary abilities made the Fanalis very formidable and dangerous opponents that one should avoid encountering any of them.

- The Fanalis people might be based on the real-life Berber people. This is supported by the fact that the Dark Continent which they hail from is based on Africa (specifically North Africa) and that the Fanalis (like the real-life Berbers) were often kidnapped and forced into slavery or forced to become soldiers. Their "wild" nature (or at least their perceived nature by other countries) parallels the Greek and Roman view of Berbers as barbarians. In addition, the Dark Continent is referred to as Cathargo, a reference to Carthage (see Dark Continent for further details).
- According to Goltas, the Kouga Clan shared common ancestors with the Fanalis.
- Every shown Fanalis has had the same fighting stance.
- The tribe name "Fanalis" might be derived from some sort of combination of the Modern Greek word Φανάρι Fanari, meaning "lantern", with the Arabic word فارِس Fāris [fem: فارِسة Fārisa(t)], which has the meanings of "Knight/Horseman/Keen-eyed person/One who kills a prey".
