Bodhum's name is taken from a city of the same name in Final Fantasy XIII. In crossover fanfiction written by Darkened Rhapsody, Bodhum is a relatively large costal town located far-southwest of the village of Gongaga. Though its tourism pales in comparison to that of the larger resort town, Costa del Sol, it is more technologically advanced than its counterpart and is one of the few places not under the dominion of the Shinra Electric Power Company and uses their own military, the Guardian Corps, to keep people in line.
