From Final Fantasy Wiki

The Burmecians appear in Final Fantasy IX, where they are depicted as rat-like beings who live in Burmecia and Cleyra. Freya Crescent is a Burmecian. In the Japanese version, they are simply referred to as "nezumi", the Japanese word for mice and rats. It is entirely possible that this is their actual species name, with Burmecian simply describing where they were born and raised (much like real-life examples such as "Mexican" or "Puerto Rican").


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)


The Cleyrans live in a giant tree in the desert, which is protected by a sandstorm that has raged for 1,000 years; the Cleyrans split from the Burmecians when the latter started to appreciate "the art of war", and have had no contact with Burmecia in over 100 years.

Attack on Burmecia and Cleyra

During the course of the game, the Burmecians are almost wiped out by successive attacks on their two main cities, leaving Burmecia in ruins, and Cleyra totally destroyed. First, Burmecia is attacked by Black Mages sent by Queen Brahne; the king of Burmecia and some survivors made their way to Cleyra, while others headed to Lindblum or stayed in the ruins of the city. Later, Queen Brahne launches an attack on Cleyra to get a powerful relic from the peaceful inhabitants. After obtaining the gem, she then summons the Eidolon Odin to destroy the tree that Cleyra was built on. The only (known) survivors of the attack are Freya, Zidane, Vivi, Quina (an optional character at this point), Sir Fratley, Prince Puck, Oracle Kildea, Shannon (one of the Cleyran maidens), and a few Moogles. The king is believed to have perished in Cleyra.
