Fhasen is a language centered in Northern Levantia, spread across the north of the continent with numerous exclaves across the world, from Southern Levantia to Crona. Its primary association is with the Fhainnin gaelic subgroup and the nation of Faneria, which uses it as an official language, although its use is widespread within the immediate surrounds of the country. It is the only extant language of the Dethaic branch within the Celtic language group.

Fhasen makes use of numerous artificial conventions created by fiat during the rule of Rethys II Suthar-Màrtainn during the 17th Century. Rethys II created modern Fhasen as an administrative dialect, combining elements of and loanwords from Gaelocoscivian, tribal Fennigaelic, Sheafteang, Latin, Faeskt, Canish Gaelic, and Itheateang languages. This variety of source pidgin tongues, regional dialects and extant tongues makes Fhasen a markedly different language from other Gaelic languages, and modern Fhasen is only marginally mutually comprehensible with even its related languages in spite of apparent similarities at first glance.
