Easter Island (イースター島 Īsutā-tō?) is a Polynesian island in the south-eastern Pacific Ocean.
A World Heritage Site protected within the bounds of a national park, Easter Island is widely famous for its 887 monumental statues, called moai, that were created by the early Rapanui people who have since been subjected to various European slave trades, plagues and diseases to the point of near extinction.
The island is a primary location for Harpies to roost.
