Inhabitants: Ant (Ruddy)
This city was captured and reduced by the Wasps and absorbed into their Empire at some point prior to the start of the first novel. It is known to have rebelled more than once, with brutal consequences, but still serves as a source of troops that are quite willing to fight other ants.
The most recent rebellion took place at the same time as Szar and Myna, its nearest neighbours, were also trying to throw off the shackles of Empire. The success of this was due to the untimely death of the Emperor, but that hasn't stopped the ants from grasping it and entering into a three city alliance with its two companions.
