Some say that the Southern Wall need never have been built, as the swampy country of Strand is so generally inhospitable and unpleasant as to stop any travelers from the south.
The country is known to be very protective of its secrets, and a rich economy of information known as the "Circuit of Whispers" flourishes within. As a consequence of this, the Strand is very intolerant of spies, and other who might steal secrets without leaving more behind.
The Strand is currently ruled by the Viridian Queen; the capital is the city of Nine Terraces. The Cycle Spirit associated with the Strand is the Serpent.
Former Name: Serpentine
