The series name is reference to mythical French city of Ys.

Common themes in the series are bravery, faith (religion), and self-sacrifice. Less prevalent themes include understanding or open mindedness even towards "evil" people, good being in everyone (innately; but also the potential for evil), trust (naïve sort even, though not presented negatively even in that case), redemption, and so forth.
