It’s a large center of trade, with the goods sold being of both the legal and illegal kinds, and is home to a few temples. The city is ruled by the Winford family, which has ruled there for many generations.
The city separated into different districts, which distinguish class, types of business, trades, housing, etc., but each district is surrounded by a wall. There are three main walls within the city. Wall Maria is the largest and outermost stone wall that surrounds the entire city. Wall Rose is the middle stone wall that surrounds the Schuyler and Marquis Districts in the center of the city. Wall Sina is the innermost wall and it surrounds the castle.
The Dalton District is located near Wall Rose and is home to many former adventurers and middle class people. This district is popular within the city, mainly because of the variety of businesses located there and the atmosphere the district has. With so many adventurers, past and present, there seems to always be something interesting going on.
This district is usually referred to as the slums, since it’s where most of the lower class people live within the city. It’s also home to the majority of the illegal trade within the city. Under King Adrian Winford’s rule, the Boar District was home to many magic users.

In this district, there is also a library, barracks for the royal guards, and a large temple to Bahamut.
This is where most of the common trade happens within the city. Very few people live in this area, but with the amount of business that happens here, there’s always a constant stream of people moving through the district.
